The Democracy profess to be terri bly hostile to political Judges, which leads us to inquire: Will Pershing resign, or will ho drag the judicial ermine through the dirty pool of pol itics? Tbe cntertaing spectacle which the Pennsylvania Democrats present in running reform candidates on a plat form faroring the ranVest kind of financial dishonesty, luores 77? Aa tion to this timely suggestion : "A party which promises the people all the money it may wan and at tbe ame time promises to steal none of it, makes a bold bid for popular sup port We trust that tbe Ohio and Pennsylvania reform platforms of this year, together with biographies of the candidates, will be placed on exhibition at the Centennial. Eu rope has nothing to show at all like them." TnE way to reform is not to reform. Th:s iu the new Democratic discor ery. It is going to reform the State government by putting at the bead of it a lawyer who, as a logiblator, changed bis vote upon receiving a $;00 fee ; and it undertakes to reform tbe State Treasury by putting into it a man who accepted a bribe of $400, and threw it np tinder tbe mistaken notion that the money was worthless. If that is the way to da it, tbe Dem ocrats have made the most notable discovery of modern time. Pillt lurglt Commercial. I'lhsuing i the Democratic j nominee for Governor cf l'enafjlva-j nia.

That able and bigtly conservative journal, tbe Baltimore Amervvn, speaking of tbe canvass in this State, says: Tbe professed ''liarj money" Democrat ic ortrans are assuring us that the currency question is a mere diversion in Pennsylva nia, and tbat the real issue is "tbe smash ing of liie Treasury ring." AVe know very little al)out tlie mauauicnt of t'uc Penn sylvania Treasury, except that up to the presen: time a "Democratic investigating committee, appointed at the last session ot the Legislature, ha been able to lino noth ing t rung.

Wc suppwe that there is no State in" the Union in which the burdens ol taxation are so light as in Pcnn svlvnma not tieotiline Vermont, where the St ite Government used to be ran fir fUfi.OW a year. It i most remarkable how sudden ly the Democracy have discovered the good qualities of Governor Ilart ranft, and how very refreshing to find journals that three brief years since could say nothing too bad of him, now bearing testimony to bis worth as a citizen and a soldier, aud declar ing "tbat the malice of tbe partisan will be impotent to pluck a leaf from bis laurels," while at the same ti.se they do so deprecate all personal al lusion to candidates for office. Why this sudden marvelous change 01 lUnC: I! It IKCIBSC mtumwin; of the honesty and worth of Hart ranft has just been made? Not a bit m . a T . 1 . . a it.ilieiiirarv of it. But U is Lecause ol tbe wretcn- ed political character of tneir own candidates tbat they are now on the ragged edge. The true inwardness of a Demoeratic journalist is only 6hown when he is put on tbe defen-! sive, w itb a couple of copperhead candidates on band. Then be is clop- ping over with the milk of human kindness, and a gallant soldier and unexceptional Governor, whose repu tation for integrity tbey vainly tried to destroy, is in the most condescend ing manner admitted to be common ly honest and worthy, as tbe world goes. ' That tbe ancient copperbead3 and sympathizers with the late rebellion, who now have, control of and ar running the Democratic pirtar in Ohio and Pennsylvania, are co n tem pi a tin cr repudiation and eventual Gnancial ruin, admits of scarce a doubt. The inflation of the present vol ume of our greenback currency as de manded by the Ohio Democratic plat form, and its follow abortion begotten by the Democracy of this State a t Erie, is a gross violation of our Na tional faith, tbe first step towards the repudiation of our national debt, the certain forerunner of a worthless and irredeemable national currency, and the swift advance courier of ruin, beggary, idleness, and vice. It is tbe pledged faith of the Gov ernmcnt tbat alone gives credit and value to our currency, and it must be patent to the most stupid of compre hension tbat a violation of tbat pledge or even tbe merest squinting towards an evasion of it, at once impairs c.red it in the national faith, the sole ba sis of cur paper currency. Now, the fact is as well known, as is any other fact or law on the btatuto books, that it was a matter of grave doubt and protracted debate whether the Gov crnment had tbe power to make our greenback currency a legal tender, but we were in the midst of the re belliou, were spending about two mil lions a day, and the life of the nation was at stake, so constitutional doubts were thrown to the winds, and the legal tender issue was voted, and thereby tbe Government waspreserv ed. But there bad necessarily to be a limit put upon tbe amount of the issue, else the faith cf the world would be shaken in the ability of the gov eminent to redeem as was abundant ly shown by the constant rise in gold and therefore in the law providing for the issue of tbe las; $150,000,000 was inserted a proviso binding the nation, that in no event should the legal tender issue ever exceed $400, 000,000. now shameless then is the demand, bow gross tbe violation of pledged national faith on the part of tbe Democrats, that additional green backs, limited only by the views of those in power, shall be issued. What would be thought of the man who borrowed a large sum of money on his judgment note, under the sol emn pledge that no other note of a similar lindfhould be given, who, on tbe same day, w ould violate his pledge and give another, which being "en tered," would thus invalidate the (se curity, on the faith of whch the first loan was obtained? And yet, this is precisely the scoundrel act which the Democrat of Ohio and Pennsyl vania propose to do. It cannot be al ready forgotten how bitterly the Democrats then in Congress, oppos-1 ed the first issue of legal tender notes, nor how it was prophesied by them very where throughout the land, that soon a bushel of greenbacks would not buy a bushel of potatoes, yet now they are clamoring for an unlimited issue of this same money, not because the tttTSities of the country de mand i", but, as we verily believe, to so inllv-e the currency as to render it wortLIt ss, and then, when by reason of tbe over issue, a bushel of green backs will really not be worth more than a bushel of potatoes (as was tbe case with the Confederate money,) in duce a mined people to repudiate the whole. To nse a home illustration: Had the authorities of this county power to issue a hundred thousand dollars of "county script" for the re demption of which the tares of the county were pledged, it would be readily taken by our people, but sup pose in violation of the pledge an ad ditional issue of a million was made, who would touch the worthless rags? and how quickly the first $100,000 would depreciate in value. We carried on the war with $400, 000,000 of greenbacks, and now ten years aftrr it baa ended, w ben the debt is being paid at the rate of one and a balf millions a month, with abundant crops throughout tho land, the leaders of the Democratic party, w ho bitterly opposed the issuing of any greenbacks, who have habitually denounced and undervalued them ever since they were issued, and who onlv la6t year bellowed for hard mon ey through their State platform, are now howling for an unlimited issue of tbcra. A more dishonest proposi tioa was never made by political ras cals to honest men. Since the father of the Democracy tempted our Sav ior on the mount, a more worthless incentive to national thef. has never been proffered a people. And yet this Democratic party in its platform, couples this brazen proposal to break our national faith, and render worth less our national securities in tbe hands of our creditors, with loud pro fessions of honesty and a hypocriti cal cry for reform. pERsm.Nti, who is the mere crea ture of accident, a nominee begotton of a faction fight, a political hybrid with hard money principles on a rag money platform, 'conceived in sin and born in iniquity,' it is now claimed by his party followers will be elected by a hundred thousand majority. For a party that carried the State last year by tbe skin of its tcetb, and merely because of the ab sence of Republicans from the polls, to put forth 6ueh a claim is supreme lr ab?urd, but when it is remember ed the manner of bis nomination, not for hi worth, nor from a desire to make Lim tte candidate, but solely lcauw tbe Cgbt ltween the Wal lace ar.4 P.uikaUw factions waxed so Ct rc .V a .ti er waa able to nomi aa . . o. and he was taken by tic . rit and beat tbe other, t.

A enronic ui- i ; r fie K-t ker, Isratra again, again, and again mbca before the people, and successful only when seeking local office in tbe 6trong Democratic conn ty of Cambria, his intrinsic weakness it too well known for such a frame of brng to win. It is openly confessed that the- Ohio rag baby was adopted by the Erie convention, with the object, first of strengthening tbe hands of tbe Ohio Democracy in their contest next month, and secondly with the hope of gulling the mining population of this State now idle by reason of tbe stoppage of the mills and manufacto ries with the pretense tbat a plenti ful supply of money will give them large wages and easy times. We don't slop to call attention now to the self-evident fact tbat with an increase of money and increased wages, will also como increased prices for every commodity and necessity, so that two dollars then will not purchase more than will one dollar now, bnt we want to point out tbat however anx ious and willing tbe Democracy of Ohio and of this State may be to in flate and repudiate tbe national cur rency, they are utterly powerless to do so, and must remain in this situa tion at least until after March 4th, 1877. The National Banking sys tern cannot be repealed, nor the green back issue be increased so long ae President Grant is in power, as he would veto any bill passed for tbat purpose.and it is will known that tbe Republican Senate is also decidedly against tbess things. Sotheagita tion of this question, at this time, is simply a waste of tbe raw material and serves no other purpose than to expose the dishonest designs of the Democratic leaders. The Democratic State Convention of New York which assembled at Sy racnse on Thursday last, gave the rag baby of their Ohio and Pennsyl vania brothers a stinging slap in the face, and emphatically declared in fa vor of the hardest kind of hard mon ey, in accordance with all tbe ancient traditions of their party. But more cruel still are the Democracy of Ne braska, whose State convention met at Omaha on the same day. These presumed inflationists for it has been insisted tbat the Western Democracy were all in favor of additional rag money not only declared in favor of a "sound currency, coin or its equivalent, as essentia! t business and a restoration of prosperity, but denounce the attempt to commit the Democratic party to a further issue of paper money as "a criaoe against the common welfare, aad a wanton violation of a cardinal article of tbe Democratic creed." Never before waa a party so hopelessly divided on a vital issue, and yet the blather skites in this State brag loudly of their ability to carry the next Pres idential election. TnAT remarkably "Independent journal", ; the Philadelphia lime, whose editor-in-chief is Alexander K. McCIure, has openly flopped oyer to tbe Democracy, and is blowing its best for Pershing. Of course this is not unexpected, for since its birth it has, under tbe thin guise of inde pendence, been doing its level best to misrepresent and injure Republican men and measures. In any event and under any cir cumstances, it would have supported the nominees of .the Eric convention, but its zeal in behalf of Pershing is tbe zeal of a welt fed lawyer for bis client, or the seal of ono stipendiary for a fjllower'owned and paid by tbe 6amo munificent master. - Since the day tbat the Pennsylva nia Railroad secured the services of CoL MeCJure to engineer tbe repeal of the tonnage tax throagh our Leg islature to the prasent moment, it has owned him body and breeches, and ably, adroitly and recklessly has be labored in its behalf, and the notori ous fact tbat Tershing, when in tbe Legislature, w-ns bought and paid for by that corporation presumably through McClure will sufficiently account for the milk in tbo present political cocoa nut Pershing tbe can didate, and McClure his henchman, both paid tools and servants of that r!amiaeerin? corporation, would if " ct a successful in the canvass, place tbe State of Pennsylvania completely and helplessly in the band j of their owner, Col. Tom Scott, to use as bis whim or interests dictate. For years the Pennsylvania road has controlled the legislation of this State through McClure, Pershing and their allies, but wc think tbe day is yet distant when tbe people will voluntarily, by their vote, transfer the collar of this .

The nominee of tbe Democrats for State Treasurer was a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representa tives in 1P46, when Messrs. Bigbam and Hilands were members from this county, lie was, during tbe session, a member of tbe committee on Banks, and Mr. Hilands, of this county, was on that committee with him. - Strong efforts were made, tbat year, to re peal the charter of the Lehigh County Bank. The Bant committee were equally divided about the reporting of this bill. It was held over nearly a month, a3 wa3 understood, at the instance of Mr Tiollet. Daniel M'Cook, a younger brother of Pr. M'Cook, late of Pittsburgh, was at Harrisburg lobbying for the bill. Mcses Y. Beach, of New York, was the chief owner of the bank. It was understood that Piollet was in treaty with M'Cook about getting this bill out of the Bank Committee. Tbe whole facts as proved before Judge Pearson, before whom M'Cook was afterwards tried, were about a3 fol- ows: Negotiations had been going on for some time between M'Cook and Piollet about getting tbe bill out of the committee. Finally arrange ments were mado tbat tbe money was to be paid tbe next morning. : All the parties were Democrats and board ing at tbe Buenlcr House. , at toos bad Col. Tiper, of Bedford, conceal ed, rolled up in a buffalo under his bed to bear what passed at tbe pay ment of the money, riollet was paid $400 in tbe notes of tbe Tlain- neld Bank or ew Jersey, and toe bill was to be reported at tbe next meeting of tha committee. Piollet, however, bio wed on M'Cook, and laid the money on bis desk in the hall of the House, and stated he had been offered it as a bribe. ' M'Cook was bonnd over and tried before Judge Pearson about a month afterward ard was convicted of tbe offense. Thaddeus Stevens defend ed M'Cook. On the trial Piollet was examined as the chief witness. Among other things, be stated, hav ing gone into M 'Cook's room and received the $400; he returned to his own room, sat down and counted the money, and he said be wept to think that anybody would be, or could be bribed for $400. Thaddeus Stevens said, " Gentlemen of tbe jury, I have been doubtiing Mr. Pi- olet 8 statement heretofore. Here is one part I suppose to be exactly true. He tells yon about counting tbe money in bis own room, shedding tears. He admitted tbat be was not aware of its being Plaiofield Bank notes until this point of time. Now, he knew tbe Plain field Bank was iu bad repute, in fact be supposed it to be utterly worthless. These tears fell not because of the attempt to bribe him but because he thought tbey had passed utterly worthless paper upon nim. f Jim virtue could not stand an attempt to bribe him with counterfeit money. Now, gen tlemen of the jury, bad be not gotten into a passion over it, had be gone to a broker's and learned that be could have had tbem changed to gold or silver for from Dre to seven per cent, be -would : have pocketed the insult and you would have been saved tbe trial of M'Cook." 1 Colonel A.

Covercor Karlrn-rt at Tmnacjiia. I Tbe Tamaqna Item of la-t evening has the following: The reception and serenade to Governor , Ilartrnoft and staff last evening was a grand success. About quarter past nine o'clock the special train bearing the distinguished party arrived froa Pottsville aad stopped at the head of Berwick street Here the Governor and his suite alighted, and were received by the committee amid tbe cheers of a va?t crowd, which bad assembled to greet and welcome tbe Chief Magistrate cf the State. Headed by the Pennsyl vania Cornet Band, playing "Hail to the Chief," aad followed by tbe mul titude of tbe people in procession, the Governor and his party were es corted to the C. S. hotel. Tho crowd trussed in front of the hotel, the band playing an appropri ate air. and in a few minutes the Governor appeared upon the balcony and was introduced by Wallace Guss, Esq. The Governor mado a few ap propriate remarks, returning thanks for the flatterincr and kind reception, which be said was altogether unex pected, as bis trip through the coun try was purely of an official and not of a political character. The Gov ernor waa followed by Adjutant Gen eral Latta, who touched very bnelly upon tbe political issues of the day. Governor Rceder, of Easton, follow ed in a short speech, and the Gover nor tnea spent a snort time ia reced ing the welcomes and congratula tions of our citizens. A number of enthusiastic Demo crats last night got Adjutant General Latta confounded with Lieutenant Governor Latta. The former is and has always been a Republican, while the latter is the Demoeratic Lieuteu ant Governor of the State. Conse quently, when the Adjutant General made "a Republican speech, the in dignation of t'lese honest Democrats knew no bounds, and with muttered curses, not loud but deep, tbey bran ded him as a ttaitor aud swore be had been bought with a price. It was really amusing to bear them rave until they bad their mistake ex plaiccd and pointed cut to them by some ono better posted in Pennsyl vania politics. Ivrhinand the l arnurrn. When the Republican Stata Treas urer, Hon. William II. Kemele, pro posed to relieve tbe firms and homes of tbe working men of Pennsylvania from tbe payment cf State tax, and place tbe burden taken off their shoulders on the railroad corporations, as a fair return for tho valuable fran chises granted them by the State, be wa3 bitterly opposed by the corpo rations, iue whip was cracked over tho member? of the Legislature who could be depended on to stand by the monopolies. Rut tbe ttiraesa of the proposition was so notorious, its jus tice so plain, and its popularity so great, tbat all tbe "roosters" could not be whipped in. In tins emer gency a telegraphic order was receiv ed in Harrisburg to tho faithful to defeat this bill." PiRsnixc. was thrown between two Eres. To oppose the repeal of tbe tax on real estate was to render bimselt unpopular with the farmers. To vote for it was to offend tha corporations and endanger his future fees. But bo was true to himself if ho wa3 false to both bi master and his' constituents, lit dodged ; and his name is not record ed on tbe record for that noble law which relieved the farms and dwell ings of our State from n tax wbieh they had been forced to pay so tbat corporation monopolies might escape their fair share of te burdens of tbe State Government. Oa what the ory did Mr. Peushixo dodge oa this bill except the obvious ono that bis devotion to the corporations was greater tbat his ideas of justice to the people? Will some Democratic news paper please explain this ? Remem ber 1 No one but tbe railroad monop olies opposed this bill Come! Ex plain. Harrisburg Telegraph. rerahinjr, tbe Reformer. "; Pcashing has been dubbed by. a New York paper tb Tilden of Penn sylvania. We suppose this means that he is a "reformer," and the title is bestowed because while performing his sworn duty he sentenced three Democratic Commissioners to one yjar's imprisonment. But wc don't see why it is more to a Ju jge's cred it to pass sentence on an official thief than it is on a sneak thief, a burglar or a defaulter in private life. We have no doubt tbe Judge is a good judge. He is now away from all temptation and be should not be tak en to Harrisburg to bo spoiled, and that bo can be spoiled is shown by tbe following little incident which is related of himj When Pershing was in tho Legislature, a bill came up in which tbe Pennsylvania Railroad Company was deeply interested. Mr. Pershing made a vigorous speech against its pa-sage and tbe next day when the vote was taken Pershing recorded bis vote in its favor. As this caused considerable surprise, one f the members said : "Why, Persh ing what caused this sudden change?" "You sue," be replied, "I reside in Johnstown and as the Pennsylvania Railroad passes throagh there and has large interests at that point, tbey last mgbt, retained me as tbeir counsel and paid mc at once a retainer of $500, and after being employed by them I could not go against them." This happened before "Reform" was tbo popular cry of the opposition. It at least shows that the Judge loved money ten or fifteen years ago, but a? bis practico was not a very . lucra tive one, perhaps he had need of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company's fees. He now draws a good salary as judge and is independent of tbe Pennsylvania Railroad, and iu that fat berth be intends to stay. The DeraoeraU want him to resign and take the stump.

Morris3ey and Kelley are fighting for supremacy ia the Democratic or ganization iu tbe city, which means control of the Democratic party in tbe State, and New York looks on with breathless anxiety. V hat is it all about? Any question of policy involved? Any creat difference of opinion on matters of great moment between these leaders of a great par ty, these arbiters of destiny, these makers of Presidents? Nothing of the sort. It is simply a Oght between two Irishmen one of tbem a profes siona! gambler, and tbe other a worse man as to which shall dispense, to other irishmen, the offices in the city. This is all there is about it Do you realize the extent of Irish rule in new York? Do you know tbat tbe police, almost without exception, arc Irish? Tbat tbe schools, tho pub lic works, the well everything, ia short, is from the head to the foot in the hands of these people? In a vast majority of the wards it is impossible far a man not an Irishman to hold acv position, and the consequence is, the city is sure and cei tain in tbeir hands. It is a regular pyramid the Irish people at the bottom, and Car dinal McCloskty at the top. The voters arc in squads of fifties and hun dreds; then captains and policemen, and rum-mill keepers; over them come the heavy contractors and higher officials; over them the Mor risseys, Kelleys, and O'Briens; over theta the priests and bishops; and over al! tbe Cardinal, who wields all this power. Ho really directs the politics of the city, and U a very large extent tbe State. Aud tbat be kuows how to use bis power, the property tbe church holds in tbo city is sumcient proof, lbe church has acquired from the city block after block of the most vealuablc real estate as free gifts. It escapes the payment of taxes, and it manages immense appropriations from the pub lic treasury for the support of its hos pitals, asylums, schools, and convents. In short, tho Irish Catholic Cburcb is supported by tho tax payers. But this is tho least expense the Irish are to the city. They furnish '.be criminals almost exclusively. Read any proclamation describing a murderer, and the words "of Irish birth" will bo found in nine cases out of ten. The reports of the police courts read like a poll-book in County Cork; It is all Mc and O. The as saulting, the knifeng, the garroting, tho robing, is ninety per cent of it Irish. . In short, almost all the law lessness that make3 New York to day an unsafe city to live in, in nine tenths of it, the work of lbe Irish. They rulo the city, they have control ol tbe offices, tbey make laws and break them; they are at once tbe judges, criminals, and jurors. Talk about tbe oppressed Irish! Those in Ireland, if tbey are groaning under English rule, ought to come at once and join their compatriots. All tbat the English p it upon them, they are putting upon tbe American branch of lbe same family. New York has more Irish in it than any city in Ire land, and tbat tbe Irish cities are better governed than New York is simply because the Irish are not per mitted to govern tbem. This condition of things iu New Vork will continue till tbe Americans get time to attend to politics. They are iu a numerical majority, and it they would unite and act they could put down their foreign rulers. the effect of the times vros real ESTATE. I said ia a previous letter that there were six thousand houses va cant in Brooklyn. Yesterday I took a run jmong tbe real estate agents to get at tbo cause. They told me that the dullness of trado had driven thousands from the city, and that many more, unable to keep a whole house, bad doubled with others. And the same is true ot New York, not ouiy in dwellings, but in business houses. Where a firm bad a whole floor, they find half will answer all tbe purposes of their shrunken trade, and so two shrunken trades go to gether, leaving an empty store and a disconsolate landlord, and a still more disconsolate party in the per sons of tbe landlord's family, who God their income suddenly struck out Rents of dwellings have gone down a half, aud they are going still lower. Per consequence, the codQsh aristoc racy are coming back from Long Branch, Saratoga, and Newport in numbers. With stores and dwel lings standing empty, the head of the family can't afford to keep his wife and three daughters at a fashionable wattering place, at an expenditure of at least fl.UttO per week. Tbe moth er may rave and the girls way weep, but back they come, perforce, to cold mutton and bash in tbeir hoose in town. The old gentleman says it was business that brought them back so early, and the feminine part of his family say they find more comfort at home than in Saratoga; but the fact is, they lacked tbe stamps to stay. And the hotel keepers mourn with their departed customers. Every one of them bas lost money this sea son, and thereat I rejoice. .Their ex horbitant charges made it impossible for pajplt to stay with tbem. There a H.,t . I is uo irouuie mat nas not 6ome com pensation. I could endure more bard times if it would kill off more sratering-place landlords. POLITICAL. The triumph of the infjatiocints in the Pennsylvania State Convention bas made the solid portion of the Democracy of this city sick. They hoped that Ohio would stand alone in this matter, that they might still act wit& their party, but the action of the pennsylraoia Cocventiou ,.l .t ;fl..riJ t. r . fciiu b luai luuiiuuu uas a sure grip on the Democratic mind of the whole country, and tbat it will be in 'tbe next national Democratic platform. Look out for a spirit in the Democ racy on this question. The Eastern Democrats will never consent to wild cat repudiation. Tbey know tbat the business of the country demands what only the Republican party can give it stability and certainty. Thousands of Democratic merchants will vote the Republican ticket this fall on the issue. rAsmoxs. A mildly rough finish oa all sorts of wcol goods is ia style at prcseat Cashmeres and merinos, with surface almost as dull as serge, and the Knickerbocker goods, like winscy, with knots of brighter color on the face, will bo tbe popular wear, with trimmings of silk, or the wide wool en or silk braids seen last year. The shapes introduced last spring were so graceful that they will bo retained through tho winter. ' The apron ovcrskirt, round or square, long, and becomingly draped, with tho closely fitted basque, lengthened ia front to give more idea of a wrap, will be models for every sort of costume. In cloaks, a deep sacque, fitting in tbe back, loose but not awkward in front, is tbe newest pattern, and will be made in heavy drop d'ettt and sicilienne, the soft thick silk, with the pliancy and substance of clotb. Felt bata, in cream color, gray, and coffee brown, will appear as soon a3 the chip and straw of summer are laid aside. Trimmings of heavy silk twists and loops, with a single long, loosely floating plume, supersede streamers of ribbon and clusters of feathers. Colored velvets, of the darkest shades in green, seal-brown, and blue, will supplant the traditional black velvet bonnet for best wear. These are the few hints it is safe to offer for the felcction of country toilets. Modest shapes and little trim:ning is the rulo for everything. MOSEY. Affairs in this city to-dav reminds one of the mournful state of things at the South in the early days of tbe war. There is blockade ot money rests in tbe banks cf New York; mil lions upon millions business men say btwesn thirty and forty millions which may be above or below tbe ac tual figure aa amount abundant to relieve tbe distress of the country if it could only be set afloat. Rut it is locked up by very justifiable fear. The banks do notki:o.v to whom it is really safe to lend money, fjr the firms reckoned the best last week are failing to day: and besides, at any moment he feeling of insecurity may amount to a general alarm auioug de positors, and lead to a run upon tbe banks, for which they are determined to be anxiously and watchfully pre pared. I hey are lending money oa cad, on the best security, at one and a balf per cent, which estern busi ness mm cf tha stu iclo a S r would be glad to pay eight and tea percent. for, on collaterals that would rejoice the heart of a Shylock. Undoubted ly, bankers would be glad to set some of tbeir abundant capital afloat where it would do others and themselves tho most good, but in these uncer tain days they don't know what bour they may want it themselves.' One case, tbat is a specimen of a hundred others, is tbat of a man who spent days tbe last hot week trying to bor row fo.OOO for six months, with $200,000 worth of firstate securities ia a Western city ia his pocket, with out success. Business of every kind looks siek. It is pitiful to see the great retail stores, which were always thronged at this season of new goods, as little crowded with buyers as the vestry of a country church at tbe weekly prayer-meeting. With all the de pression, there is a rise in articles Carpets are higher, aad china bas ad vanced in price at tbe best bouses. Probably tbe only way dealers can make np their expenses is by putting a small extra profit on sncb goods a bear it. THE WEATHER is moderating a little, that is to say. tbe thermometer doesn't go above 85 and tbe nights arc decently cool. Thank heaven, fall weather is closi at band. TlETKO. Ontlawa Captnretl. Kassas City, Mo., September 13.- John Dayton, Osvca Rooney aoti Henry Lincolt, the lalter a men boy, entered the saloon of the Rail road House, a disreputable place ot. tbe Shawnee road, outside the citj Mmits, yesterday afternoon, and afte ubbing Charles Carlot, who was n charge of the place, ami locking hirn in a room from which he escaped fired several shots through the hous and then went up stairs and ravisber the women there. Meanwhile Cariot reached the town and notified tb police of the outrage, and four ofli cers rodo out to the scene. They were fired upon by tho ruffians am. Detective McKcight was bndh wounded in the leg. The efficer-t r turned the fire, but without effect They then closed with the despera does and a fierce hand to b ind figkt ensued with clubbed pistols, resuitinp in the capture of the gang, who wer disarmed and brought to town. Con siderable money, supposed to have been taken from the house, was found in their possession. MVaafaaajaaaaaaVaTaaBaVaTJM Xcw Advertisements: VLLEOHENY PITY ST A IF. Bl'lLDISQ a WOOD TUKN1XU SHOP.
