" I tie State election of 1SC9, when Perching rvn for Suprcmi Judge, he ran 3,3? 1 behind his colleague, Tack cr, the candidate for Governor. W ibFcrve that Col. McClure, who Las tbe credit, if it be one, of leaking Pershing the Democratic nominee, advises Lim to resign his j:vwct judicial position, and In per- e-ca lead the Democratic party to i. tory. - 1 VrLing dues'nt belong to the re- r-iguingVind. If the Democracy can on!y carry Ohio by half ft million or -o, perhaps Le might be coaxed into reigning it, but until that miracle i reur? Le ill stick. Pioi.i.ft was placed on the Demo cratic ticket as a bait for the Granger vote. TLat organization is based primarily on hostility to monopolies. Perching ba been for many years the attorney cf the Pennsylvania Rail road, the worst and most exacting monopoly ia this country, and during Lis cniim legi!;-ve career was 6itn ply its representative aud advocate. Yet the Grangers, because Tiollot belongs to their organization, arc ex pected ta support Pershing, the paid representative, attorney, and leader of the legislative forces of that mon-t-poly. I a other words, for the fake of Laving a member of their fraterni ty elected to a subordinate position, they are expected to place the State Government in the Lands of the very enemy it was organized to oppose. I Pn'Miivd voted tieaiDs-t a bill to' rcquire cornoratiocs to yty their cm- dre?s was denied, rrcceediogs had plovees in money, inMead of rrdcrs ia tbe meantime been instituted in on stores, and one of the re aos tLe Circuit Court of tbe United Governor HartraDft gave fi-r vetoing State?, and finallj wlen the case the charter of the Keystone Iron j came on lor hearing, that tribunal, Company was that the charter gave j Judge Grier presiding, unanimously no protection to the employees wh;ch j decided the law to be unconstitution wocld insure the payment of their tl, null, find void, and the company wages.

At Erie, Speer and Sam Randall, of Philadelphia, i both safari- -rabbcrs. controlled the! ! convention and nominated Perking at the dictation of Alex McClure. What a lovelv lot of "reformers"' to control a gubernatorial convention! and what a Luge moral reform there will be, should tLese candidate be elected! Faugh! Pershing, the Lire ling, and Tiollet, tlicpincher, in the role cf reformers-! ! Tnc Republican ciaiu v.i. 1. 1 . u . Committee bold a large and barmo- ioious meeting at Ilarrisburg on Thursday last. eaiiy every coun ty in the state was represented, and the members gave the most encour gaing reports of the political sitna lion in every portion of the Common wealth. The committee was unani mous in the belief that all that is nec essary to secure victory to the llepub lican party in November, is to iu3gu urat an active campaign and woik together with a will fur the whole ticket. Cari, ScniKZ has returned from Kurope, and having accepted the in vitat:on of the Ohio Kepubli:nn State Central Committee, is now tn tLe stump iu that State against Allen and the Democratic rag baby. Tbe Democrats who, ten years since, pm- ted Lira on the back, and -uug poems to Lis integrity and independence, because Le joined Lands with them in the support of Greeley, are now making ugly mouths at Lim, and charging that he has been bought up by the lloththilds and other bankers in Europe to advocate hard money. Under Democratic rub? iu Penn sylvania the farmers aud household ers paid $1,500,000 a year of State tax, and the great corporations al most escaped taxation on their vast wealth. In 1SCC the Republican party urged the repeal cf ail State tax on tbe farms and homes of our people, and the taxation ot corpora tions in their stead. The Railway Monopolies ordered their creatures in the Legislature to defeat tLis just law. In obedience to this command CYRUS L. PERSUING, afraid to offend the Railroads, and too coward ly to 6iand by the farmers, ran away from tbe llouso of Representatives and "DODGED" tbe vote. .See lA-gitlatice Record ISCfi, wj- 2!J. One of the encouraging signs of the times in Pennsylvania is the fact that, in the counties where the Republicans were last year divided by local quarrels, there is now no in dication of distraction. Delaware county, which last year elected two Democrats to the Legislature through a Republican split, is this year united upon the ticket, and promises to give 1,800 majority for the State ticket. The Eame spirit rules in Lancaster, Crawford, Bradford and other coun ties that have been distracted here tofore, and there is not now, a single county in the State in which harmony does not prevail in the Re publican ranks The repeal of the charter -f the Pittsburgh V Connellsville railioad during the session of 1SC1, was the grossest and most flagrant outrage ever perpetrated by the Legislature of this, or any other State. It was a naked theft of a most valuable pro- ertT. It was an lilep-al forfeiture of a franchise on which millions of mon ey Lad been expended, without a shadow of excuse, or even an allega tion of wrong on part cf the corpor ation. It was an outrageous viola tion of law, equity, the constitution of the State, and of common hon esty. It can be neitLer palliated, ex cused, nor defended. It staads among the statutes of the Common wealth a damning, perpetual eiigrace to the State and to all who partici pated in it Tbe history of this villainous trans action is short and easily understood. After many years of hostility, a cLar ter fr this road Lad been procured, that portion of it extending from Pittsburgh to Connellsville had been constructed, and after an arduous struggle means bad been secured dur ing the year 18C3 to complete the work to Cumberland. At this junc ture, and at the instance of the Penn sylvania Railroad Company, a bill was introduced into the Ix-gislature during the session of 1?C4, absolute ly repealing the charter of the road, and all postponement being refused its friends without a bearing, and without an allegation that the com pany bad either misused or nonused ita corporate privileges in short without rhyme or reason it was de prived of its charter, and itstoek boldera robbed of tno large amount of money they bad invested in it. Several jears" were lost in vasnlT at-1 tempting to induce subsequent Leg islatures to undo this rocg, but so thoroughly did the Pennsylvania rotd control tbcfe bodies that all re- , y .f VwMng is possc89d of one tithe of the legal ability bis friends claim for him, he knew when Lc voted for this Stt that it as ille gal and unconstitutional, if Lc was honest or conscientious in the slight est degree, hi felt that he was pcrpe- : tratmg a gross wrong, ami ii oe -u ! . . , ?C I. - 1 been possessed of cither manliness or independence Lc would have revolted against assisting to perpetrate this j iniquity. But restrained by nothing, knowing no law but tbe dictates oi tic Pennsylvania road, his master and owner, Lc threw conscience, hon or, knowledge and honesty to tbe dogs, and sustained this bill, which no lawyer in the Commonwealth dare say was legal or predicated in jus tice, or no honest man will claim was equitable or right. The people in this section of the State fully under stand this matter, and appreciate as lully the character, legal and moral, of this Democratic candidate for Governor, but we put it to the people of the State, is this roan honest? is he capable? is he true to the consti tution? or rather does not this trans action prove him to be dishonest, in capable, and a mere paltercr with in tegrity, the tool and slave of others, ready to do their bidding, even to the -nrrifire of common honesty, and therefore utterly unworthy of the high position to which bo aspires. llfv; the Democratic journals do wriggle, and squirm, and squeal, un der the assaults upon Pershing, and bow suddenly they have grown con servative and decent in their lan guage, and Low tbey do deprecate personal assaults upon public men, and how earnestly they now point cat, p.s r. orning to the Republican press, that the gross villification and scurrility they heaped upon Governor Ilartranlt three years since, only re acted and helped to swell his major ity, and Low frankly they now ad mit the Governor to be an unexcep tional gentleman, and beg us to do the Eame for Tershing. But bow sin gularly, and signiGcally, and signally they fail, or rather refuse to see, the difference. Their charges agaiast Ilartranft were mere scurrilous inven tions, Cgments of the brain, lies from the whole cloth, unsubstantial, un- sustained and untrue, while we go to the record, and prove by Lis votes. that Pershing was a virulent copper- bead, a political dirt eater, a tool and representative of the Pennsylvania railroad. Here is a difference which lim a i-annnl fail In nop W ft . , , man nt mira a ttii an nnnn a.A lirintT I i ""-.v k , s no mere railing accusations against Mr. Pershing. We publish and de nounce bis public record, and we dare a successful coutradiction. His private life may bo spotless and pnre, but his political record is vile and indefensible, and we go the coun try upon the fact that it proves Lim to be totally unworthy to be the Chief Magistrate of this grand old Com monwealth. "By their works shall ye know them," end no claim of per sonal purity, no shrieking for moral reform, will, or should efface from the minds of the voters, tbe public works of this apostle of private mor ality, so opportunely discoverded and so filly championed by the saintly McClure. Ji'iKiE PEKSMNti's letter accept ing the nomination for Governor, is published. In it be says that Le is a hard money Democrat, opposed to inflation, and that he will uot resign his present position. Who'se afeard? A Bad 1. mi ll is claimed that Mr. Pershing gave a cordial support to the Govern ment in the late war. Read tbe fol lowing, and ask yourself if they were the votes of a loyal and patriotic man? Voted for resolution declaring the Emancipation Proclamation uncon stitutional, aud the President's acts arbitrary. ,SVe Journal Houne of Representative of Pennsylvania, lSf3,77c 887.

He also took tbe position that the United States Le gal Tender act is unconstitutional. Sec his remarks on thts subject, in Legislative Record for 18C4, page 140, rfc. Tbe significance of this opposition consisted in the fact that gold at that date commanded a premium of near ly 100 per cent. It is alleged that Mr. Peehing is the Triend of tbe working man. Let men who toil for bread, examine the following votes, and determine fr themselves whether these are in the interest of tbe laboring classes.

The following is of interest to every farmer and lot owner in Penn sylvania: " Under Democratic rule in Penn sylvania, the farmers and bouse holders paid $1,500,000 a year of State tax, and the ereat corporations almost escaped t xat on on their vast wealth. In 1866 the Republican party urged the repeal of all State tax on tbe farms and homes of our people, and the taxation of corpora tions in their stead. Cyrus L. Persh ing "dodged' the vote. See Isgis latice Record, 1SGC, p age 231. The crowning impeachment of Mr. rershing's claims to broad or decent statesmanship is founded on the vote following, especially directed against a class of cur citizens who were help less, and fleeing to our bDrders from their enraged oppressors: Voted for bill to prohibit negroes coming into the State to make it their temporary or permanent resi dence .See Ilovte Journal, 1SG3, pages 55C, 574. Ant Awful Calamity. St. Louis, September 21. Super intendent Clowry, of the Western Union Telegraph'Company, commu nicates to General Anson Stogcr, as fjllows: A Morgan steamship has just ar rived at Galveston, and reports the town of Indianola, Texas, almost en tirely destroyed. The lighthouses, wharves and nearly every house been swept away, and one hundred to one hundred aud nriy lives lost, ine steamer could Gnd ne place to land her cargo. St. Lotis, Sentem!er 21 Colonel Clowry has received the following from Galveston: Additional accounts of tho In dianola disaster say the loss of life and suffering is terrible. Dead bod ies are strewn for twenty miles along tbe beacb. The citizens here are or ganizing for the relief of the sufferers. Over one hundred bodies had been found and buried up to the time the steamer left. Mr. Sanborn, manager of tbe telegraph offce, is reported safe, but the otliee is destroyed and the lines down for miles. Tbe following note has been receiv ed: Imhanola. Sept. 20. To de Editors of the News: We are destitute. Tbe town is eone. One quarter oi toe people are gone. Dead bodies are strewn lor twenty miles along the bay. Nine tenths" of tbe Louses are destroyed. Send us help, fcr God's sake. (Signed) D. W Cham, Dis trict Attorney. A FEARFUL HURRICAN. The following has bsen received by business firms from correspon dents : On Wednesday, tbe 15th, the wind was from eastward, voeriqg to nortb. On Thursday morning it became mure steady, increasing to a gale. Tbe water was waist deep. Every man, woman and child were seeking a place of safety. It blew fearfully. Tbe situation was awful. Screams from women and children could be heard in every direction. The water was six feet deep in the streets. About 3 o'clock Friday morning tbe wind veered to northwest. The waves then became chopped. 11 Houses were washed away or turn bled to pieces. Tbe wind towards morning began to lull a little. The water was getting lower, the wind having veered to tbe north. Then came hope. Daylight began to break, and then did we behold tbe awful destruction around, and thanked our God that we had been saved, and that our perilous condition was as nothing compared with the sufferings of our neighbors and citizens along the bay. Broad daylight revealed a scene that was terrible to behold. The town could not be recognized as tbe Indianola ofthe day previous. People were seen walking and jumping over one gully and another. Neighbor met neighbor and told of the troubles and tribulation of tbe previous oigbt. Death and destruc tion were all around us. Houses were cushed to the ground. Others swayed round and leaning over. The wind was dying out aud water disappearing from places in the streets. Those that could called out to learn the news. Tbe bodies of men, women and children were- found iu all directions. Police and guards were organized, and the search was made for missing relatives and friends. How many have lost their lives in this fearful storm it is impossible to learn. Up to this time sixty or sev enty bodies have been foutid and buried. Women were found, and men also, who bad floated on doors, or anything tbey could get bold of. Some were beneath the roofs, car ried away long distances The es cape of so many of onr citizens is al most marvellous. Tbe search for bodies is still going on, and tbe num ber of human beings drowned will never be known, as there were a large number of strangers in town. We estimate tbe number of lives lost at one hundred and fifty. II. J. II uck lost everything but his house, Eighteen bodies were found yester day, and tbe search will be continued until all the dead are deposited in their last resting place. You cannot imagine the extent of tLe disaster. Nothing short of its full details will give it proper knowledge. Numbers of persons were oat on rafts for hours, but in many cases were not saved. Wm. Taylor, on trial for the Sutten murder, was let out ofjail to prevent his being drowned, and made bis es cape. AU the churches in the town are swept away. The Court House is safe. One hundred and fifty five persons, Capt Sam Brown and two of his family, were saved. Tbey took refuge ia the lighthouse and were thereby saved. Brown is now tbe only surviving pilot at the Pass. A I'tcyaune extra bas tbe follow ing! Sabixe Pass, via Gbange, Sep tember 21. This city is submurred, and considerable damage bas been dose to wharves and buildings by tbe terrific storm through which we Lave just passed. Much loss of stock is reaortad. and croDS in the surround ing country bare been considerably injured. 2k o loss af life, happilr, bas been no iar reported. Ice little mail steamer Pelicaa State wm wrecked in Sabine Lake, but the passengers and crew were saved, ilanv email craft have been blown off and sized. cap- ew Orleans, September 21. Later information from tbe Texan coast says that tbe town of Mata gorda is swept away, only two houses rcniuioiug standing. The town of Cedar Lake is washed axay and all the people lost. A public nieetiog of citizens was held this evening and largely attended. Many liberally subscribed to aid the Iu dianola and other sufferers. A steamer will leave here to-morrow morning with provisions and cloth ing. Information received from Eust Ray states thattbo suffering amoug tbe people is terrible. Out of twenty-eight human beings, only Eve are known to be alive. A Horrible 3Inrdr. CixcixxATr, September 23. A Bellefontaine, Ohio, special says: Yesterday Miss Laughlin, a yt ung lady aged sixteen, accompanied a oiiQ named Sebell and wife in an excursion to tbe. reservoir, severs miles distant. Mrs. Schell. being la ligucd, was left with tho team, aud Schell with the young lady started after wild plums. Schell returned without Miss Laughlin, stating that she bad strayed from Lim and he could not find ber. An alarm was given and search made, resulting in finding tbe body of tbe young lady this forenoon nearly nude, ber throat cut from ear to ear, and the grass showing that a desperate struggle had occurred. Schell was not ar rested until this afternoon, and upon examination a bloody knife was found in bis pocket. Ho is now under ar rest with a heavy guard around bim to protect him from the excited people. Cincinnati, September 24. A Belletontaiue special says Mrs. Schell, wif of tbe man arrested yesterday for tbe murder of Miss Laughlin, was arrested to-day aud testified be fore the Coroner that her hunband had told her that he inteodeel to rav ish MisS Laughliu and kill ber after wards; that there riiie on Thursday was planned for that purpose, anil that her husband threatened to kill her if she followed him when be went into tbe bushes with Miss Laughlin. Sho says ho returned in about two hours, stating that Miss Laughlin fought so bard Le did not Mieeeed in ravishing her, although after he had stabbed her she said, "Don't kill me, Jim; I won't resist any more," but be feared she would tell, and so killed ber, threatening also to kill his wife if she- tub! of it. Mrs. Schell also testified to other t ri nes coiumittedby I er hu ban I. Tl a affair causes tbe most iuieiis excite ment. Business is suspeuded, and il is reported several hundred citizens of the surrounding country are com ing into Bellefontaine to-uight deter mined to lynch Schell. Many wagon-loads have already arrived. The Sheriff has summoned a strong pusse, who are guarding tho jail, but trou-. b!e is expected before morning. SCIIELt LYNCHED. Cincinnati, September 24. About lb roe hundred men attacked tbe jail at Bellefontaine, Ohio, about half past 12 o'clock to-nigbt, batter ed down the doors, drugged Sebell out and hung bim to a tree. Tbe guard made no resistance. Schell protested his innocence of the crime. The Texas Cyclone. Cincinnati, O., Septemler 23. A special Southern despatch to tbe Times says parties who arrived from Indianola last night, and who were there during the terrible cyclone, ful ly confirm even tbe most sensational report of the destruction of life and property there. Out of three hundred bouses only Gve are left standing. During Thurs day night, while the storm was at its height, the water in the city rose over six feet in two hours, the wind blowing eighty eight miles an hour, driving the water and breakers through the city at the rate of fifteen miles an hour, sweeping everything in its way, and covering tbe plain iu the rear of the city for ten miles to a depth of several feet. Several small settlements, number ing a total population of one hundred and fifty, were also swept out of ex istence, making with two hundred and fifty lost at Indianola, a total of four hundred lives lost.
