The New York Ficpublican State
Convention cssembled on Vednes
day last end nominated a most un
txrepiioaal ticket as follows: Fred
V. Seward, ('son of W. H. Seward,)
Secretary of State; Gen. F. E. Spin
ner, ( late Treasurer of tbe C S.,)
Comptroler; Gen. K. A. Morrith,
Treasurer; George I. Darforth, At
torney General, Ac.
Contrast the nomination of llart
ranft, without an opposing candidate,
and by a unanimous rote on f.rst
ballot, with that of Persuing, after a
scrub race with eighteen other com
petitors, and a concentration on Lira,
not because of bis fitness or eligibili
ty, but because one faction was de
termined to beat the other regardless
of everything else, and ask yourself
which of tbcm is likely to receive
an undivided support and be success
ful at the comiDg election.
Turns is no surer proof of the
feuds and divisions of policy in the j
Democratic ranks, and the certain
precursor of their defeat at the com
ing election, than the fact that the
Cnuncial plank in their platform was
carried in convention at Erie by a
vote of only 138 for, to?9 against it,
and tLat one of the delegates Sou
lier of Lehigh, obtained the floor
and in open convention not onlr de
nounced the platform, but hoped to
Goi that with it, the party would
not be successful. In committee of
Cfty tbe financial part of the plat
form was framed by an impecunious
set of bummers, influenced by their
own personal wants and was only
adopted by a majority of one.
Wr. a:c much surprised ttialtl.e
Democratic Convention tt Erie, af.or
declaring tle'r "unfaltering dt vt-.i-.-u
to the fundamental principles cf Iciu
erratic government as enunciated by
Thomas Jefferson in L; Grit ic an su
ral address,' did not
i . e , .-..-.,
ine.r naiar.crins ucvouou io ee "
damenlal principles cf the IJiUc.
Both declarations woul J Live Wen
equally broad
and liberal, nad bsth
aboct c fjnaiiy tru. The great truths
of the Eible tre twisted and constru
ed so asto cover any degree cr meas
ure of faith held by rny nud every
prole&sing Lnnstian, ana iiiC n.aij
doctrine enunciated by Jefferson of:
'erpuil and ciact jucticc to ail men,'"!
was, but a tew years since, cuusuucu
bv these Fame Democrats to mean
only n eawith white tlins. Starting
with a view of obtaining power un
der false pretenses, these demagogues,
aa usual, stultify themselves by their
first declaration of boncstr.
Elated with their success last fall,
the Democracy at once commenced
mating out their line of assault for
the gubernatorial canvasa of this
year. At a meeting of the leaders it
was resolved that an assault on the
management of the State Treasury
would be the surcd aud easiest
method of terrifying tie people into
their future eupport, and accordingly
tbe Democratic House raised a com
mittee of investigation, and the Dem
ocratic press commenced belching
forth its thundering charges of mal
feasance and misuse of the public
funds against the present Treasurer,
supplemented with allegations f!j
irmiil and defalcation. Suddenly tms
deftly planned conspiracy was punc
tured and laid bare by the compulso
ry sworn certificate of tie Democrat
ic Auditor General Temple that
both the
Treasurv cud tie sinking
fund are in tact, and the published
statement of the Commi.-.-ioners of
the Sinking Fund, that nearly one
and a half millions of the State debt
had been paid wi' bin the year. Floor
ed and exposed, and fearing a loss of
tLeir power, over the masses whom
thev mislead,
the conspirators found
it necessary to keep up a show ol
faith in their own spurious eoiaa?e, j
ana therefore the i to, .V.h and Cth res-1
olutions were
platform.
Lied iato the Erie
ArrLP. a three davs bitter stru"de
4 - -
at Erie, which the journals i t that
party designate as deliberation, the
Democratic Convention was deliv
ered of a gubernatorial mouse n
Thursday evening laft.
According to the reports furni.-ht-d
by telegraph, all the Democratic poli
ticians of the Stair, great and smail,
were ca the ground manipulating the
members of the convention, and the
battle was bitter and fierce, ending i
eventually ia throwing the far most i
prominent candidates Bigler, Ross,
Barr, and Noys, overboard, and plac
ing in nomination Cvrus L. Pershing,
formerly of Johnstown. Mr. Persh
ing was not made a candidate by
compromise, but he is the creature of
a combination between the partisans
of Bigler and Noys for the purpose
of defeating Ross. Ho is a county
lawyer of fair abilities, of good per
sonal character, and is at present
President Judge of the courts of
Schnylkiil county. Reared in that
hot bed of Democracy, Cambria Co.,
he is a thorough-faced partisan of the
old loca fota school, and has neither
personal or political strength beyond
that of any other thick and thin fol
lower of bis party flag. lie has
thrice been put forward as a candi
date for important offices by bis party
friends, and has as often been de
feated. In 1."5 ho was defeated for
Congress ia this district, then com
posed of Somerset, Cambria, Blair,
and Huntingdon counties by Col. J.
R. Edic; in 1S58 he was again
beaten for the same office by Hon. S.
S. Blair, of Blair county ; and in
1 SC3 he was nominated as a candi
date for Supreme Judge and again
defeated by the Republican candi
date, Judge Henry W. Williams.
About 1SG0, we think, Mr. Persh
ing was elected to the House at Harris-burg,
and was re-elected three or
four times. Two years since, the
Democracy of Schuylkill county
elected him to the bench, since when
be has devoted himself to the duties
of that position.
For Treasurer, the convention, fol
owinir the precedent establiih?d in
the gubernatorial nomination, slaugh-1
, ,, . . , .,
tered all the prominent and capable
men before it, and placed in nonnna-j
tion Victor E. Piolette, a Bourbon of ;
the Bourbons, who never knew any
thing, never learned anything, and
never will learn anything. There
are one hundred Democrats ia Som
erset county who would make a mere
capable State Treasurer than this an
cient fraud, and in saying this wc do
not in the least flatter our fellow citi
zens w bo imagine they are treading
in the footstceps cf Jefferson and
Jackson.
All reports concur ia the declara
tion ttoat the convention was a per
fect mob, no semblance of order be
ing preserved after the nomination
for Governor was made, and that tbe
notorious "Bill McMullen'' of Phila-
phia, mounted the stand and by
threats cf violence forced the chair
man to keep the convention ia ses
sion until long after midnight, thus
assuring the nomination of Piolette.
A ticket so innately weak, nomi
nated after a bitter fight, not with re
gard to the fitness of the candidates,
but as to which faction should win,
with nothing to commend it, and
everything to disgust and alarm dc-:
cent prudent men with the method
and manner of its nnminntinn ran!
and will be badly beaten, and if the
Republicans of tbe State turn out to
the polls, as they should do, will bring
it beneath a majority so large that no
future tidal wave will ever again
throw upon the political stand the
corpses of tbe unlucky candidates of
tbe Erie Convention.

received Eve-sistbs of the party vote.
He has been whipped for Congresp,
for Jude of the Supreme Court, and
for Judse of the District Court of

an overwclminc mnioritr. and was

AN IlIFLiTIOlT PL!TrC2!I!
The Convention after occupying
the time from Wednesday morning
at 10 o'clock until yesterday after
noon at 3, in getting organized and
the'resolutions ia shape, submitted
the following
PLATFORM.
IlrrvlreJ, That we hereby declare
our unfaltering devotion to the funda
mental principals of Democrotic gov
ernment as enunciated by Thomas
Jefferson in bis first inaugural ad
dress, to wit: Equal and exact just
ice to ah men of whatsoever state or
persuasion, religious or political : the
support of the State governments in
all their rights as the most compe
tent administration for our domestic
concerns, and the surest bulwarks
against anti-republican tendencies;
the supremacy of the civil over the
military authority ; economy in pub
lic expenditures that labor may be
lightly burthened ; the honest pay
ment of our just debts, and the sa
cred preservation cf the public faith :
freedom of religion, freedom of the
press, freedom of person under the
protection of the great writ of habeas
i r,,i.. and trial by iury impartially
selected.
Second, That the widespread de-
iprcssionand suffering which affect
every business employment tnat is
capable of being touched by legisla
tion, shows beyond a doubt, the ig
norance, inefficiency, and wickedness
of the leaders of the party that has
ruled the State and natioa for a peri
od of rears, and calls for their im
mediate and r-ormancnt removal from
lbc r'aces wh:cb, tbtT havc p0 IoD5
dishonored and disgraced,
Tb;rdj That tbe nJue mnlt;pnct.
lion 0r ?ahy.c c,fi;cc?i and the inordi-
nate increase of the salaries and
i i . r , nr. .l
t-uioiuiLeiua oi unite, lie aiuung iuc
many evils which radical rule has
forced upon the country ; and favor
ing an economical administration of
the Federal and State governments,
so that the people may be as speedi
ly as possible relieved from the bur
den of taxation with jvbich they are
now seriously oppressed, we call upon
our Federal and State representa
tives to strive, by all proper means,
to reduce them both to the very
lowest practicable number and
amount.
Fourth, That the conduct of the
present State Treasurer in the man
agement of the Commonwealth's
nuances, ia Lis neglecting lo appro
priate tbe moneys in the Sinking
Fund to the payment of the public
debt, as rapidly as required by law ;
bis non-accounting for the interest
received by hira on the people's mon
ey deposited with the several banks
and banking institutions throughout
the Stute, and his insolent refusal to
submit the archives of the Treasury
Department to a legally-constituted
Committee of the House of Repre
sentatives, appointed to investigate
tne same, are cause lor grave susp:
c'oi, and are deserving of the sever
est condemnation at the bands of an
outraged and already over-taxed peo-
pie
l"iflh. That
the condition of our
State Trasurr demands tbe most
thorough and searching investiga
tion, and we call upon the Commit
tee appointed by the House of Rep
resentatives to investigate the state
of the same, and to resolutely pursue
the duty which Las been confided to
it.
Sixth, That the nominees of tuia .
Convention are hereby plcdgci to
apply all moneys in lie Sialics Fund i
repaired by lav.- to the. redaction j
of ib'j nationu! debt, and 'hereby save
the interest on the ame to the j
amouLt so reduced, and that moneys!
duo the Cou monweakb from corpora-'
tiens and individuals shall be itromnt-
:
?- 1
J into tL Ireasnrr. ana cot
, i s
manner. direc;!r nr indirect!r.
to emplov public monevs for their
i profit or purposes.
Seventh. That contraction of the
j currency heretofore made bv the
Republicia party, and the further
contraction propose by it with a
view to forced resumption of specie
payment, have already brought dis
aster to lha business cf the country
and threatened general bankruptcy.
We demand that the policy be aband
oned and that the volume of curren
cy be made and kept equal to the
wants of trade, leaving the restora
tion cf Legal Tenders to par in gold
to be brought about by promoting the
industries of the country, and not
destroying them.
Eighth, That the policy already
initiated by the Republican party of
abolishing Legal Tenders and giving
the National Banks tbe power to
furnish all the currency wilt increase
the power of an already dangerous
monopoly, and the enormous burdens
now oppressing the people, without
compensating advantage, and that
all the National Bank circulation
be promptly and permanently retired,
and Legal Tenders be issued in its
place.
Ninth, That the public interest
demands that the Government should
cease to discredit its own money, and
should make its Legal Tenders re
ceivablc fjr all public dues, except
where respect for the obligation of
contracts requires pavment in coin.
Tenth, The extincton of the pres
ent National banks, end the establish
ment in their stead of a svsteni of
free banks of discount and deposit,
under such regulations as the State
mav respectively prescribe ; and no
paper money except such as may be
issued directly b and upon the faith
of the Federal Government, afford
ing rracticallv a currency based on
the gold, silver, and other property
of the whole people of tbe country.
Eleventh, Tha, with this declara
tion c! principles and policy we ar
raign the leaders of tbe Ilepubiieau
party for their extravagant expendi
tuers and profligate waste of tbe peo
ple's money, for their corruption, for
their speculations, for their contempt
of constitutiocal obligations, for their
extortionate increase of the salaries
of our public oilicers, Lr their op
pressive, unjust, and defective svj-n hi j
of taxation, finance, ar.J currency,
for their continuance of iar.-mp. tx
and corrupt men in ofiiee, and f
r
their general mismanagement of
both the State and Federal Govern
ments, and we cordially invite the
Liberal Republicans and ell other
men, without regard to past party
associations, to co-operate with us in
expelling them from power, and iu
securing such an administration cf
our public affaiis as characterized the
purer and better divs of the Ilcnub
lie.
After the adoption of the platform
the nominations for Governor were

candidates were named: Boynton, of
Cumberland; Wm. Bigler, of Clear
field; Leech, of Philadelphia; D. M

An attempt was here make by
Chairman Wright to adjourn the
Convention against the wishes of the
delegates, and after an almost unani
mous vote against it, and for a little
while pandemonium reigned. Alder
maa McMullen t ok a lively interest
in the proceedings and read some
law to the Bourbon from Luzerne,
which seemed not to set well on his
stomach. Calls and cries of all kinds
rent the air, tbe desire of the dele
gates being to go on and finish tbe
business.

York, September, 8 ISTo.
HEAT, DIST AND TEACHES.
Fervid beat and intolerable dust
mark the opening of September, and
raise many a longing sigh as wo read
of the frosts and bricin? weather in
the Northwest. Wutercarts", prcain-
uuiate tue streets all day ions', ice
cream is the staple article of diet,
and the baskets of spotted peaches
left by the glut in the market, raise
but a teeliug of sa icty. Ine genius
who would invent a way to get rid of
peaches here this year would call
forth the thanks cf dealers. It is un
fortunate that they can't be sent by
balloon to the desolate West, whose
peach orchards bear no longer. They
would serve a double purpose as
ballast and freight while the cool
ness of the upper atmosphere would
preserve their freshness iu high fla
vor. Peaches might be sent 'over
night from New York to Chicago,
aud the prevailing order of the mar
kets and wharves considerably im
proved .hereby. Venders hold verv
fair fruit at tea cents the ha'f-peck,
piled and running over, while bas
kets arc selling from fifty to sixty
cents. Peach ice cream is the popu
lar delicacy, with the comforting per
suasion that poor fruit is used for
flavoring it. While speaking of the
products of this part of the country,
u may ue uieuiioueu mat eiaiiis are
unusually fine this seas-m, a fact
which rejoices tho

Were the season as propitious in
business as it is in nature, there
would be nothing left to wish. But
the tbastly list of failures iu each
morning's papers makes businessmen
look sick; and there is a clenching of
bands aud looking out for the
wort that is not healthy iu the chill
and fever wcatherof September. Tbe
only people who look at all at case
are tbe bankrupts. The wor.-t is
over with them, aud there remains
the fresh start, set off by the prospect
of hoarding carefully all profits for
years to come, to pay ia full the cred
itors wno compounded for fifty cents
on the dollar.
Every day brings ils regular lists
of failures. The week the great
book firm of Lee & Shepard, Boston,
went under, taking with it their New
York house, liabilities, $500,000, as
sets not yet known. But it is to the
credit of our business men that they
are doing everything ia their power
to raise lbc fallen firm, aad set it on
its feet again. The publishers in
New York, who arc ibe principle
creditors, say to them "Pay what
you can and go on," which they will
do. This is what honesty aud integ
rity is worth. Lee & Shepard failed
from no fault of their own, and they
struggled desperately for three years
before they went down. They lost
$225, 000, in good hard-earned mon
ey, in the Boston fire, and the de
pression in business, and the shrink
age in values, finally brought theui
to their knees. Tbe thousands of
people who read Oliver Optic, and
the other authors they have brought
out. will be glad to know that they
will probably resume ia tea days.
Such men caunct long bo kept down.
Friend Pitts, the well-known Broad
way ladies' furnishing goods man,
went by the board Wednesday, and
Thursday, Union Adams, the better
kuown, men's furui.-her, followed suit.
These are the best known, but there
are a dozea a day in tbt City.
But despite this the buiuess men
feel a slight revival of their hopes.
Whether it will last, remains to be
seen, but it is certain ihat there is au
increase in business for thela.t week.
There are a great many iner:-hants in
tbe City, and they are buying, though
not extensively. They seem to be
"sorting up," rather than buying full
stock, but even that is better than
nothing. The wheels are moving, if
they do creak.
But I do not believe that New
York will ever again have the trade
it once held.
IT COSTS TOO MITCH
to come to New York to do buaiuess;
and for a part of their loss of trade
the merchants may charge the hotels
and the parasites that hang upon
them. For instance, if a country
merchant comes here, he wants to
and ought to bring his wife. At any
hotel he would care to stop at, the
rate per day is 4.50 $9.00 for the
two and as he can't get a waiter to
do anything decent for him without a
fee, his daily expenses will mount up
to quit $12 par c'ay. If he wants to
go to a theatre, be is swindled out of
$1.50 for each seat, and as for a hifck
to go to Ibe Park, $S is tbe
lowest, and $10 aad $12 are common.
Ia short, a ten days' stuy will use up
the butt-end of $250, to say nothing
of the expenses of coming and going.
Everybody digs into him, for they
never expect to see him ng&iu.
Of course they can't afford it, aad
of course they don't. They go to
Chicago, St. Louis, Cincinnati,
Toledo, and the other big points in
the interior, where $50 will go furth
er than $lo0 will here. Ibe hotel
aad restaurant keepers don't teem to
realize that the war is over, for ihey
are charging war-prices for every
thing. Touatoes are cot woith
twenty-five cents a bushel in the
markets, but at a first-class restau
rant you arc made to pay forty cents
a plate for sliced tomatoes. Beef is j
as cheap as dirt, but nevertheless a I
decent steak at a restaurant costs you
from CO cents to $1.75, and the pro
prietors never blush. New York
wiil never get her trade agaiu till all
these things are refermed.
CRIME.
The records of the week read like
one long list of horrors. Burglary,
murder, and suicide follow each oth
er so rapidly, that it need strong
nerves to read the dailies with their
list of wee. Since .Voir York obvl-i-Iied

of ancient
of ! Sod-tci not wishing to speak harsh
r" ; Iv of those who have suffered their
Ifitc. I mentioned a week atro. this
incident ; oa a rainy evening not long
since, a gentleman walked down
Lexington Avenue, one of tho quiet
est street? of town, was set upon by
two roughs, one of whom snatched
his Land one tua'ch and chain worth
five or six hundred dollars. The
gentleman seized the thief, and was
getting the better of him, when tbe
polireman of tho beat came up to the
help of the thieves, and began thump
ing him over tho head with his club,
till he was forced to let go his hold
of the robber, who fled with his
booty. The gentleman made his
way down street and entered his
club, covered with blood, bis head
cut open by the policeman's blows,
a pretty picture for the centre of civ
ilization iu the nineteenth century.
When he went to the inspector of
poiiee for redress, he was called on
to dentify the policeman; but as on
the night of the assault that worthy
had been wrapped in Ilavclock and
waterproof, it was impossible to de
tect him, aad all the comfort the
complainant had was a jeering laugh
from the inspector, and the brutal
answer that he must have been too
drunk that night to take care of bis
own watch, aud lost it.
Occurrences of this nature are be
coming alarmingly frequent. The
polico assert that the increase of
crime is attributable to the number of
men out of work, but they lie when
they so say. The work dono by foot
pads and burglars shows the work of
skilled men. The fact is, the police
are in partucr.-hip with the thieves.
None are caught. The burglars who
killed Noe are still at large, and no
clue has been found to them ; and
the same may be said of every case
h it has occurred. TLe investigation
uo.v iu progress will, it is to be hop
ed, do something toward remedying
this perplexed condition of thinjrs.
No decent man feels safo at night in
New York without his pistol or
sword-cane. The only hope of a bet
ter stale of tilings is to have the
present grow worse, till honest citi
zens are obliged, ia self-defence, to
assert themselves, and take the rule
out of tbo hands of tho degraded,
reckless class who have got hold of
it. If good men are too busy cr too
careless to look after public interests,
there are plenty of worse ones who
will be triad to do so.
THE PEAT II OF IlALSToN,
the San Francisco banker, is not felt
East as it is in the Stato where he
was a leading power. When the
news of the failure of the Bank of
California and the terrible death of
its Pre.-ideut came to the city there
was a flutter, but that was all. Cal
ifornia does he-r business direct with
Europe and Asia, without the inter
vention of New York, and failures
there have but little effect here. A
few houses having branches in San
Francisco were hurt, aad the Chinese
residents cf the city were touched,
but nothing serious happened. Had
such a failure occurred iu St. Louis
or Chicago, i; would have shook
things.
POLITICS.
Joha Morrissev has locked horns
with Tammany in dead earnest, and
there is going to lie a struggle. The
prize-fighter and g imbler beads one
faction of the Democracy in this city,
and a much worse man heads the
oiher. They hate each other so cor
dially that I don't believe it possible
for them to get together at all ; and
if the resjiectability of the city had
sense enough to take advantage of
the situation, they might capture it
and get decent government once
more. But they won't do it. Tbey
have their goods to sell, and Sarato
ga to visit, and primary meetings are
annoying things to manage ; aud so
they will stick to their merchandise
and let tbe thieves govern them. At
least this is what they always have
done, and I sec no indications for a
change for the better. Possibly the
condition of the city may spur the-m
to action, but I rather think it is not
quite bad enough yet. Nothing less
than a Tweed can make it hot enough
for them.

Cincinnati, September 7. The
grand parade to-day, iu honor of the
opening of the sixth annual Indus
trial reposition, was a great success
in every particular. The day opened
auspiciously and the whole city pre
sented a gala appearance, all the
buildings along the principal streets
being decorated with evergreens,
flags, various devices and legends.
Among tbe notable designs is a splen
did picture of the Exp isi.ioa buildings
iu gas jets, in front of the gas office.
Along the Gibson House front are
arranged rows of gas jets number
ing over 500. The procession form
ed in line shortly after nine o'clock,
and was nearly five miles ia length,
composed of nearly 400 vehicles of
different kinds, representing all the
different branches of trade, merchan
dise and manufactures; thousands of
horsemen and footmen with banners
and regalias. Tbe different divisions
were headed by twenty brass bands.
Governors Hendricks, of Indiana,
McCreary, of Kentucky, Mayor
Johnston aud other notables reviewed
the procession from tho balcony of
the Gibson House. It is estimated
lhat over 200,000 people witnessed
the procession.
The various departments of the
expot-iiion are changed in location
and arrangment from that of previ
ous years. All of the departments
are ia as great a state cf complete
ness as they were on the opening day
of the former expositions.

of tbe Jackson Daibj Timr, John

the county, and expressed a hope
that the same good feeling would
characterize all their meetings. He
complimented Judg; Johnson on the

said he would be glad to sec such
