WEDNESDAY - February 13, M7. Tai "Greeobtck" Stte Executive Comrnitteti bs resolved to hold FUte ConeDtlon in Philadelphia on the 5tb inst to pltee in nomination candidate for Governor and other State officers Ir ia announced from Washington that the Tresident baa decided to give Republicans the preference over democrats in all future appointments. Better late than never, will be the response f those who voted and labored to place a Republican Ad ministration in power. It was for rebellion that Lucifer was cast into hell. The latter-day Democracy having determined that rhp1lion ia not a crime, it follows of course that the nert effort is to prove there is no hell. ' No wonder that people are becoming unsettled in their belief. The Legislative joint committee to investigate the riots of July last, is now taking testimony in Pittsburgh. It consists of Senators Ryburn of Philadelphia ; Yutzy of Somerset; Allen of Lycoming; and Represen tatives Lindsay of Warren ; Dewees of Iluntingdon ; Means of Cumber land, and Eoglebert of Dauphin. Pope Pius IX. died at Rome on Thursday last, surrounded by Cardi nals and papal dignitaries. A con clave to elect a new Tope will proba bly assemble on the 17th inst AH the Cardinals residing abroad have been summoned to Rome. Details of the last scene are published in our oeas columns. It is bruited abroad, that ex-Gov ernorJCurtain is a convert to the cheap money delusion, and has joined the Greenback "Reform" crowd led in this State bv that prince of dema pogues, Hendrick B. Wright Atlaet "Andy" has found congenial com pany; w hen a Republican turns tail on his party and joins the Democrats, there is do telling how low down he can sink. Eli Perkins bavin spoken of Jeff Davis as a traitor, the Atlanta Coiiistilution says: "The South is full of just Buch traitors as Jeff Davis. Treason such as his grows on every bush and tree, and the little children are taught to call it patriotism." This is an important admission. Had a Northern paper said as much, the solid South would have been up ia arms. It is well to know just bow the South stands. TnE Washington Jiepublican, as pumioglLat the next Presidential election will be a fiercely contested bat tle, holds that it is the duty of the Republican party to organize at once Tor that campaign. On this point the Jlt'yuhhi a saya ; Let the President do what be may, the Republican path of duty is plain. It is its mission to save the nation from being overrun and desolated by the Democratic bordea in and ont of official position, who seek to eubju tr ale and possess the government To accomplish this end the Repub lican party must be thoroughly or ganized in every State from Maine to the Ivio Grande and from the At lantic to the Pacific, and the cam paign cannot be commenced too earlv. The Democrats is Congress have scarcely got their smelling commit tees organized, than up turns a piece ol democratic scoundrelism Tor in vesligation. Mr. Baker in the House few days eince openly charge Doorkeeper Polk with corruption and malfeasance in office. The first charge was that of carrying on bis roll and paying sixty three more persons than authorized by law. Second that he required employes to pay to other employes part of their salaries; and third that he is interested in claims pending before Congress, each of those charges being sustained by affidavits. Strike at corruption and you hit a Demo crat, always. This fellows Polk is evidently a bigger fraud than Fitz simmoDS, who boasted that be was "a biger man than old Grant" Yc foreign holders of United States bonds have become alarmed at the various propositions made in Congress looking to the payment of the principal and interest of the bonds in stiver, and they are beinghnrried back to thfe country and put upon the market for sale. The . V. Tribune ot the 5th saya : . "During the last three weeks $3,000,000 United States bonds hare been 6old in this city on English ac count $3,000,000 more are on their way, and orders were received yes terday to dispose of $5,000,000 addi tional Government bonds. They are principally 18C.a, 1885s, 4J and 5s. Yesterday $1,000,000 Government bonds were sold at a fractional decline on account of German holder at Frankfort ' Most of these were 8lg. The cause of this "strong desire of foreign holders to get rid of United States bonds is the natural result of the proposed silver legislation by congress. It is very evident that the Demo crats in the House are acting on the principle that no odds who were elected, none but Democraja axe. en titled to seat. This outrage of a seating the Republican member from Colorado, has been followed by a re port against Tacheco, the Republican member, whom the Courts of Califor nia, after a thorough investigation, declared to be elected, and next will rome the ousting of Darr (Repub ) from the third district of Louisiana. The Returning Board count gave Donall a tuajortty of 2,04 over Axk lin, bis Democratic competitor, and the Democratic count gave bim 1,08" majority, and yet the majority of the committee wiM report Acklin elected, and doubtless Darr will be deprived of bis seat What's the use oTa Democratic majority if it cannot do as it pleases, regardless of law, -ustice, or decency? Axemen, rebel has been concili ated Ililliard of Georgia has been confirmed as Minister to Brazil. Mathews, Iloar, Burnside and Chris tiancy were the Republicans that vot ed for him. As was generally anticipated, a jury packed for that purpose, have found a verdict of guilty, against General Anderson of the Louisiana Return ing Board. The trial was a farce, the object being not only to punish a Republican who could not be bull dozed into certifying the State bad voted for Tilden, but to lay the ground work for the impeachment of the title of President Uayes. There is trouble ahead. Tie implacables whom the Presi dent has taken so much trouble to conciliate, will turn upon and rend bim if they can, and bo much has been surrendered that the friends whom be has alienated, cannot now save bim from much personal annoy ance, and the country from fierce and perilous agitation. The proposition to re-enact the odious income tax has received an al most solid Democratic vote in the House at Washington. The dema gogues assert that this tax is essen tially in favor of the poor man, be cause it will be collected off the rich only. But the necessity for it is cre ated by the accompanying proposi tion, to strike off the duties on im ports, whereby the country will be flfmded with foreign products, to the mortal hurt of our home manufac tures, and the consequent permanent depreciation of the wares of labor. It is onlr when our borne industries are prosperous that times are good and wages are remunerative. Cripple the manufacturer and producer and you dentrov the sources of income, lower the standard of wa:res, and grind the workingman between the upper and nether millstone. Ivtekse excitement prevails in London and throughout England over ihe announcement that the Rus sians have occupied Constantinople, and that British interests are there by endangered. Anti-Russian mobs have paraded the streets of London and the house of Mr. Gladstone, and the office of the Daily Ntfi have been 6toned. The popular feeling annears to be intense) v hostile toi Russia. The Ministry have called npen the Czar for an explanation, and a fleet has been dispatched to the neighborhood of Constantinople. It looks as if there m;gbt be a general European war, and the markets in New York have been greatly unset tled by the newt. Rates of insurance on English, Austrian and German vessels have been largely advanced, and risks on Russian vessels are absolutely refused. An immense tariff demonstration came off in Pittsburgh oo Saturday laBt, which was participated in by citizens from Ohio, Maryland, West Virginia and Western Pennsylvania. Over fifteen thousand men marched in the procession, notwithstanding the muddy condition of the streets, while myriads of spectators lined the sidewalks and windows. A mass meeting was held in Exposition Hall ia which stand were erecteds for speakers from the different States represented. Addresses were made by a number of distinguished gentle men, all protesting earnestly against the propositions now before Congress looking to a reduction of the duties imposed on foreign importation?. The demonstration wa9 participated in by men of all shades of political opin ions, capital and - labor marched shoulder to shoulder, and but one sentiment protection to American industry animated the immense con course. If public sentiment counts for anything with our representa tives in Congress, this immense dis play of hostility to further tarifl tinkering at present, should give them pause. Pennsylvania' is so overwhelmingly la favor of protect ing home industry, that of late years discussion among her citizens has been deemed useless, hence the free traders have apparently presumed that all interest in this vital topic bad died out among our people. This notable demonstration and protest, will prove how baseless was the supposition. As was expected, the trial cf tLe Louisiana Returning Board turned tip to the light a Democratic effort at bribery. William II. Green, a lead ing colored w&rd politician of New Orleans, and clerk of tiue Returning Board, testified that when Lt was called to Washington as a witness, he was frequently interviewed by the Secretary of the Democratic Commit tee, who tried to induce bim to tell what be knew, and to make copies from the abstract minute book of the Returning Board, and that he was promised, if he did so, the assessor ship of the Third District ; and fur ther, that be received from the Secre tary of the Democratic Committee a letter, which had twenty-six dollars enclosed. On cross-examination be admitted, with a great deal of reluc tance, that it waa Mr. Edward Har ris, Secretary of that pure Democratic statesman, Gov. Palmer, of Illinois, that offered bim the assessorship. Another piece ot Democratic ras cality was developed, as follows : Mr. Powers, passenger agent Cor Cassidy'a Hotel, testified that a pack age deposited in bis office by the Su pervisor of Mooreboose parish, con taining the returns of that parish, ad dressed to the Secretary of State, was witn Lis consent, taken to the Democratic Central Committee rooms.

Wellington Dispatch to The Philadelphia Press. The subject of appointing Demo crats to prominent positions under the Government fcos been considered in the Cabinet on a number of occa sions, and, as known, has always been the subject of wide difference between the President and at least four of his advisers, as well as a largs majority of the Republicans of both Houses of Congress and the leaders of the psrty in the North and West. At last a Baal decision has been reached on this subject, and the President has formally intimated to his Cabinet that in future be will not appoint Democrats to positions of the character indicated. He has always expressed his determination to operate within the ranks of the party that elected him, and having discovered that the results expected from the appointment of Democrats throughout the South are not being realized, be has determined to select competent Republicans for office wherever vacancies occur.

Holding two sessions a day made things quite lively on the "Hill" dor in? the week just passed. Business was pushed along rapidly and more real progress made than during any previous two weeks or tne session. Several bills of great importance to the people were considered and though not passed finally the action upon them was such as to show clearly what their ultimate fate will be. One of great interest to mechanics and la boring men as well as owners of real estate is the bill extending the bene fits of the present lien law, to journey men and laborers. The law now in force, allowa only contractors and others wbo furnish material to file a lien upon buildings, and provides no redress for laborers to whom wages may be due and unpaid. The bill now before the Uonse was drawn up by the mechanics of Philadelphia, and proposes to correct this oojust dis crimination. An amendment was offered by Mr. Neal of Philadelphia, making the law apply to public as well as private buildings. He stated as a reason why the amendment should be adopted that work on pub lie buildings in Philadelphia is given out by contract and the contractors invariably cheat the workingmen out ot their wages. This is rather a strong statement, and there is no doubt tbat it needs modifying. There are, how ever, swindling and bogus contractors from whom laboring men should be protected. The bill was recommitted to the committee on labjr and indus try to further perfect it and will un- donbtedlv pass. The bill known as the "Philadel phia Recorder's Bill" was discussed for nearly two days in the House and gave rise to some warm and not over-elegant charges and person alines between its advocates and opponents. ' The debate was confin ed pretty much to the Philadelphia delegation, and the speakers were in terrupted by screeches and groans and other demonstrations peculiar to this element of the legislature. The bill empowers the Governor to ap point a Recorder for the city of Philadelphia, who shall bold office for ten years and appoint five mer cantile appraisers who shall hold of fice for two rears. An effort was made on Friday last to correct a great abuse tbat has ex isted in tne House tor several years past. It has been the habit of a few, and for the honor of our Staie we' are glad to say a very few, mem bers of the House to vote in the names of members who were absent from the House when their names were called by the clerk. Some- tiaies the cheat is discovered and sometimes (t is not. If, when the call of the nays and yeas is finished, some member calls attention to tho fact tbat a member recorded as vo ting is not in the House some bra zen rooster will arise aud say "O, he was here when his name was called, but he has just gone out." There is generally no satisfactory way of proving that this Is not true, and the matter drops. Sometimes the vole is stricken off, but nobody has ever been punished for attempting this species of ballot-box stuffing. Mr. Jackson of Mercer, one of, if not the leading Republican mem bers of the House and the Auditor General elect Mr. Schell, one of ' the Democratic leaders made an attempt to combine the honest element on both sides and make a tule that "no rote shall be recorded unless the member voting 6hall rise in his prop er place and remain standing until bis vote is recorded." As this chang ed g rule of the House it required a two-tbirds vote to adopt it. This it failed to get and was therefore lost One of the remarkable things con nected with the vote upon this ques tion is the fact that two votes were cast against it in the names of mem bers wbo were not present. These fellows don't scare worth a cent. A bill was introduced In the House on Friday providing tbat all corpora tions asking for legislation from this Slate must accept and comply with all the conditions of the new consti tution before their requests can be considered. This is intended prin cipally to compel railroad companies whose charters were granted before the new constitution was adopted to do away with the free pass system. The evening of Feb. 12th has been set apart for the consideration of the local option bill in the House. This order was merely adopted out of courtesy to the friends of the meas ure and is no indication of the strength of the bill. In fact it ha9 no strength with the present legis lature, but its supporters are a plucky set of fellows and seem determined to offer battle upon all occasions oo matter what the odds may be against them. After a long and spirited contest the resolution to appoint a special committee to investigate alleged frauds in the Agnew-Haslet con tested election case has been adopt ed and the committee appointed. Thev will probably go to Forest cjuniy net week and begin the in vestigation. A hill was introduced yesterday appropriating money to pay the expenses of tbe jnvestigau'on. Both the Senans and House will adjourn over from the 15th to the 20 inst. ao as to allow members to be at borne oa election day. B. A fclrn-1 (alclda. Charlotte, N. C., February J.

Rome, February 7. The pope died at 3 o'clock p. m. r The condition of the pope changed seriously-for the worse during the night, and bis holiness has already received the last sacraments. The cardinal vicar bas been sum. moned to the Vatican. An order has been given to prevent any person not specially authorized from having access to the pope's apartments. Egress from the Vatican is also prohibited. The foreign cardinals have been summoned by telegraph to Rome. Prayers for the pope's recovery are being offered in all the Churches in Rome. Rome, February 71:10 p. m. The pope bas passed into death agony. His death is momentarily expected. Rome, February 7. The pope's legs were so much better yesterday that he was able to walk a few steps. It is believed tbat this exertion was fatal. The change for the worse oc curred at four o'clock in the morning, when the death agony commenced. The cardinals were assembled in council in the next room, but all, to gether with the dignitaries of the pa pal court, were at his bedside at the moment of bis djath. Cardinal Panecianco administered the last sa crament. The ambassadors accredit ed to the Vatican called to make in quiries during the morning. King Humbert also constantly sent for in formation, ao one was admitted to the Vatican except the pontiScial chamberlains, who are charged with the office of guarding the corpse. Monsignor Simeoni, the cardinal secretary of state, has ordered the Anzereatore Romano, the daily organ of the Vatican, to suspend publication until to-morrow. The city is perfect ly tranquil. The authorities have taken all the measures tbey deem necessary. The police and municipal guards preserve the approach to the Vatican. London, February 8 There can be no doubt of the pope's death. The morning journals fully confirm the previous reports from Rome. The Airerlitsr'e special dicpitc'u from Rome states that the news of the pone's death has already been officially announced and gives the following particulars: 1 ba pope at eight o clock on ed- nesday night felt a sudden suffocation. He rallied several times, but said to bis physicians : "Death win this tune." He was alternately lucid and wandering. His last moments were lucid- He said ; "(juard the phurch I loved so well and sacredly." The immediate cause of death was the closing of the wound in the leg which made the humors mount into the lungs and brain. Cardinals Manning and Howard aud many others were present at the death. i Other accounts say the cause of death was the mounting of water to the heart The pope swooned and was in extremis at three o clock but death did not occur until somewhat after the time announced ia the first dis patch from Rome yestsrday. The standard's telegram from Rome says : "The aspect of the city ia qi;iet to indifference, strongly con trasting with its appearance otj the death of King Victor Emmanuel a month ago." Pius IX (Giovanni Maria Mastai rerretti) was born at sioigaglia, Italv, May 13, 1792, and was there fore in the S6ih year of his age. Slew Orleaaa. New Orleans, Febuarv 7. The Anderson trial was resumed this morning. At 9:20 p. m , Judire Whit taker finished tbe reading of bis charge to the jury, and they retired, The court room was cleared, and even the attornevs for the defense had left, nobody expec'.ing a veidict, almost everybody believing that tbe result would be a mistrial. At 10:10 p. m. a loud knock came from the jury room, which was promptly an swered by a Deputy Sheriff, who went at once to tbe room, and return ing quickly startled the Judge who, with some gentlemen and reporters, was in bis private office, with the news tbat be jury had agreed upon a verdict. Tbe counsel were sent for and Judge Cnllum, of. the defense, baring arrived, court was opened again at 10:40, and tbe jury brought down and called- About forty per sons were present. Jude Whit taker asked the foremau i-e usnal questions, when the rerd.ei was given to tbe clerk. Geo, Anderson was deathly pale, twisting nervously the head of bis cane between bis fingers. The verdict was as follows: ' New Orleans, Febuary 7. We tnd Thomas C. Anderson guilty, and recommend him to tbe mercy of the Conrt. w. P. C'osvfci, Foreman of the Jury.

A ryelvae. Augusta, Ga., February S. At about 7 o'clock last night this city was visited with a shower of hail, which was followed by a rain storm, accompanied by thunder and light ning. There was a rambling and tremor similar to that which accom panies a light shock of earthquake. This storm passed . away, but was followed by a cyclone which left de struction in its path. A little after! one o'clock this morning the cyclone! struck the city on the southwest near Centre street, and demolished many houses. The lower market bouse, a large Biro c to re in the middle of Bread street, was literally lifted and smash ed into atoms. . Several ..brick nd wooden buildings were . wholly or partially destroyed. The cyclone travelled from southwest to northeast, and covered a space of aboot three hundred yards wide. Some casualties are reported. The Columbia Railroad depot is a total wreck. Some damage was done to the Central Railroad depot, and many private residences were injured. Charles Dives and wife, colored, were found dead under the ruins of their house. RAVAGES OP THE STORM. Later The cyclone struck this city first about a mile from the Court barely escaped before the disaster came. Lontinuine in a northeasterlv direction, the hurricane tore down fences, demolished a wagon yard, up rooted trees and unroofed bouses. A colored church on the outskirts of the city was completely destroyed. A cotton cdmpress was partially blown down.und the Central Railroad freight depot completely unroafed. A negro tenement bouse was next blown down and an old man and his wife killed, but their children escaped. Nearly the entire eastern end cf the Charlotte, Columbia and Augasta Railroad de pot was destroyed. Two hundred feet of it were blown in and the freight buried beneath the ruins. A brick building was blown over npon adwell ing, crushing it in. The ocoupants, however, miraculously escaped, save an old lady, who was considerably bruised, and whose injuries may prove fatal. The steamer P.osa, moored at Savannah river wharf, was torn completely awav and drifted some distance down the river. Two freight cars on the Carolina road were blown down an embankment, and in some cases heavily laden trains were moved along the track. The total damage by the cyclone will amount to little over $50,000. The la ves tige of the hurricane ' disappeared in South Carolina. Reports are rife of damage in the neighboring country soutn oi Augusta, l ne weatner was cloudy and windy all day. Now Prridrnf lal t'ompllrallvn. Washington, February 8. The Republican leaders in tho Senate and House regard tbe conviction of Gen. Anderson in the Criminal Court at New Orleans, on ihe charge of mak ing a luise return ol tbe vote tor Presidential electors in tbe late con test, as tbe inauguration of a contro versy which is likely to involve issues as serious as those only averted bv the Electoral Commission bill Pri vate dispatches received here to-night indicate a purpose on the part of the authorities at New Orleans to press tbtir judicial proceedings to the pre mises to the utmost point It is inti mated by those in direct communica tion with New Orleans tbat these prosecutions will be followed by an investigation of tbe part taken by the visting statesmen, and as a natural resul'. of the conviction of tbe mem bers of tbe letqroing Hoard, then will follow judicial proceedings against Messrs. Sherman, Garfield, Kelley, Foster, and others, for whom requisitions will be issued. Tbe suc cess of these proceedings in New Orleans, it is stated, will stimulate similar action in Florida and South Carolina. Tbe opinion was express ed to-day by the Bourbon element in the House, tbat this would present sufficient grounds for a writ of quo warranto under the provisions of tbe Electoral bill, returnable to tbe Su preme Court, to have Rutherford B. Hayes show by what right he exer cises the functions of President of the United Stales The conservative element of the Democratic party are emphatically opposed to this agita tion, and announcqd to-day that tbe course of the authorities in Louis iana is inopportune, ill advised and injudicious. The effect amongst Re publicans generally, aid especially in Administration circles, has been to stimulate all parties to a spirit of com promise. There is now no doubt that every branch of the Republican party will be satisfied that suocess can only be achieved within the party lines, and that every effort should be turned in that direction.

Benton, M. T., February T, ISTS. 4-Cbarley Buckman arrived from Fort Bloggitt last evening, with the following important information: On the 13th ult. the Crow? and Gros Ventres camped at Ft. Blogsitt dis covered the moccasin tracks of about one hundred Sioux in tb9 vicinity of the camp, and pieces of tobacco tied to stieks were found, which signi fied. that the Sioux, desirtd U smoke and bold a council. The Crows and Gros Ventres, however, considered the tobacco a decoy, and were afraid to-venture eut The following day Major Reed, wbo was at the fort, started for his ranche in the compa ny of one of the Crows. Whei a few miles ont tbey discovered a large party of Sioux, mounted, and were compelled to turn back. That night all the Indians camped near the fort and tied their horses to the lodges, but in spite of this precaution fifty bead of animalswere stolen, evidently by the mounted party seen the day previous. Ihe party on fqot is country, taking tbe lodges of his own people with him, and advising the rest to follow. A Gros Ventre Indian came in from Marion's to-day, aud reported as follows : A member cf the Blackfeet tribe recently came to his camp on Mari on's to learn how he and bin people felt about joining the Siuux. It ap pears that the Sioux have held a council with the Sircess at Cypress mountains, when tbe Sioux stated that tbey wanted us to form sn alli ance with all the northern tribe a to kill off tbe whites before the latter become too numerous, im bir- ce.ss communicated witb the Bhei,: eut tblS l.wlian feet, aud the latter ae to negotiate with the Gros Ventre and Pigeons. Before the Gros Ventre Indian from which this information is obtained, left the Marion, a run ner from the main camp on the Milk river had come in with news to tbe effect that a delegation of nine Sioux bad come to tbe camp to set the Gros Ventres and Assinaboiues to join them agaiust the whites. The Gros Ventres profess to have threat ened tbe party, whereupon ihe latter went outside the camp, dug a hole and dared them to cnuie on. They say they they woold have attacked them, but were afrai-1 of the As.-ina-boiaes. A t'nnadlna Kenaatioa. (Quebec, February C.

Yesterday morning a levee broke about a mile and a half below Sacra mento City, and the water at once began to spread over tbe low coun try, extending to the base of the II st. levee, which protects the city on the south. A large fjree of men were at once employed to Gil up the openings in the R st. levee, where streets pass through, and tbe city is now considered secure. The only danger is from backwater.
