Our I icinocr.it ie friends were at a loss to know the occasion otthe brilliant tire-works that were seen living through the air Mon day evening. They didn't know that '-Ti-pvanoe and Morton too," had been nominat ed by the Republicans at Chicago and Chair man Shafer was opening the campaign in Somerset county. An organiition of young gentlemen known as the "Somerset Sociul 8'iely " will go into camp on the batiks of the Yough iogheny, ulioiit three mihs ulsive Contin ence, on July .'id.

Indiana county, was engages! in milking on Wednesday evening of last week her son. aged tive years, was standing ! near by under a tree. Suddenly a bolt of ; lightning struck the tree with terrible re I suits. The child was killed, and the mother j rendered insensible, in which condition she j remained for six hours. She subsequently i recovered. The majority of the jersons burnt out at Iiiiliois were left Miniless, on 'account of having no insurance. The town was mot!y built of wood, had no fire department and the insuraive companies would take no risk in the business portion of the town except ing at very high rates. The state lias fur nished tents to shelter the homeless, and young John IuIlois oened his store and gave away goods. A sad accident occurred near Mil ford sta tion, Tuesday evening, w here two sons of X. P.. ( bristlier were bathing in a deep o in Coxes creek, lioth boys were accustomed to swimming, and Wiiliam. the elder brother, had crossed to the opsisite hank. On re turning, when in the middle of the stream, he was seitsl with cramp and sank beneath the waters licfore his brother was able to go to his assistance. William Ankeny. a neigh bor, recovered the bdy of the unfortunate youth by divim: to the liottom of the jiool which was some fifteen feet deep. On Thursday of last week a most singular accident befel Mr. Wm. Shutt, a blacksmith of Frecport, Armstrong county. While cleansing a water jug. lie put the mouth of tlie same close to the nozzle of the hydrant, and the great pressure of water rumiing into the cliMd vessel caused a terrific explosion, sending pieces of the jug flying in Jail direc tions, one large piece striking Mr. Shutt in the throat, severing the jugular vein. The nlood spurted three feet froni the body, and before medical aid could arrive it firmed a xl ubout him, across the sidewalk and down the gutter. He is still alive, with fair promls of recovery. Saturday rx-shcrifT John Winters showed us the tarnished cases of an American lever silver watch which he values beyond price. The time piece was purchased by its owner in his boyhood days, and was his constant companion during the three years and nine months he served ic the Fnion army, pass ing through seventeen engagements. Three days before Lee's surrender Mr. Winters was taken prisoner near Farmington. Va, and while his captors were engaged in searching his fellow -prisoners he quietly buried bis watch in the sand, marked by an elderberry bush, only to recover it after his pockets had been rifled in turn by the "Johnnies." Mr. Winters carried the watch from that time until a year ago a lien lie presented it to his son, and it marked its last hour on tlie boy's bureau the night of the Cla.le House fire, when he was compelled to flee for his life in Li night clothes. The blackened caves were found by (lie laborers engaged in clewuing out the ilade Bouse cellar, and returned to their owner. 0 FFICIAL RETURNS OF THE RE PUBLICAN PRIMARY.

Total After "riding the goat" around the prehis toric and firmly beaten ring liehim! closed doors, Tuesday evening, the venerable "but ter" was trotted out in full view of the pub lic, followed by Smierset lodge of Freema sons, and some thirty members of the Mey ersdale lodge "diked out in diivrs." and hs 'king so trim that they might well have been mistaken foi representatives f "du. le dum," and headed by the cornet band, they marched with masonic step to the court house yard, where the ancient animal was regaled with an entire change of fare from his accustomed tin-can and jack-knife diet. 1 In fact it was a lawn fete, and as pretty a one j as we have ever witnessed. The tables were 1 tastily arranged, beautifully decorated with ' flowers and terns, and were ladened with all delicacies of the season. After cigars hail i lieen served compliments were exchanged between the sister lodges for half an hour, when at 12 o'clock the visitors were escorted to the statiou where they embarked on a special train for home. The Republican Committeemen of the 'utility held their annual convention in the Court House Tuesday afternoon. Chairman Shatter (silled the meeting to order. J. C. Wcller, Ksq., of Milf.ird and.

Ijimbert of j Shade and John M. Yoder of Stonycreek i were elected as the Kxeeutive Committee. A j number of amendments to the rules govern- j ing the party were presented and adopted i and will be submitted to a vote at the next 1 primary election. Thefollowing rnolutions, offered by Capt W. H. Sanner, were passeil with a rousing dicer: Wiieukas, The Republican National Con vention at Chicago has nominated as our standard-lxarers the true ami tried states man, soldier, and foitriot, Gen. lienj. Har rison, of Indiana, for President, and the honest and upright statesman, ex-tiovernor Levi I. Morton, of New York, for Vice Pres ident, therefore, Ileilicd, That this Convention heartily endorses said nomination, w ith the pledge that we will use all honorable means to pro cure their triumphant election in November next. Three Girls Drowned. A said case of drowning occurred at Made ra, Clearfield county, Monday afternoon, says the Tyrone llcrnld, by which three families were plunged into mourning and the entire community deeply shucked. Three girls, Mamie Stoffer, aged l.'; Ocr tnnle Hensel, aged i:5, and Julia Russner, aged ll years, left their homes aliout noon and went a short distance to Clearfield creek to bathe. Just how. long they remained iu the water, nor how much they enjoyed the relief from the intense heat of the day before they lisapieared beneath its surface and were drowned, will never be known. It is supposed that while enjoying their innocent srt thev ventured beyond the shallow water and got in over their depth, and not being able to swim, with no help near they went down once, twice thrice and soon that which had lieen a scene of girlish glee had lieen changed into a watery tomb for the three young maidens w ho were doubt lews the light and joy of their respective homes. Remaining away from their homes for so unusually long a time their parents became alarmed and a search was made for them. S.sm their clothing was found and then the awful truth burst upon them that their darl ings had disapiieared beneath the cruel waves and their lives smothered out. Their efforts were at once directed toward recovering the bodies, and at six o'clock the last of thethree. cold in the embrace of death, was brought to the shore. The sad accident has caused a deep gloom forest upon the people of thecntire surround ing country, and many are the expressions of sympathy that go out to the bereaved par ents. The HoiriDle Death of a Child. Last Thursday afternoon at half past 3 o'clock an alarm of fire was sounded by the steam flouring mill whistle at F.verett. The alarm was caused by the explosion of coal oil. Annie Miller, a colored child, aged about 12 years, while making fire in the cook stove attempted to hasten the fire by pouring coal oil upon it. The oil exploded and her clothes were quickly in flames. In her agony she ruseil from the house, but lie fore aid could reach her had received terri ble and fatal injuries. Both of her limbs and body were so badly injured by the flames, she died iu great agony at 10 o'clock the same night.

Atx pt,: The Heifers Died. A nunilier of young cattle belonging to Frederick tiress, of Tod township, Fulton county, Pa., came home from pasture one evening recently, fires noticed a foreleg of one of the cattle was badly swollen. The next morning the animal's leg was three times its natural size from hip to shoulder, and the body was also swollen. The ani mal, a valuable young heifer, lay on the ground moaning in pain, its eyes being red with blood, und froth dropping from its mouth. It dii-d in a short time. The next evening another one of the herd exhibited the same symptoms, and died in the same way. A third heifer died wilh the mysteri ous ailment a day later. There are many rattlesnakes ill the totality, and the general opinion was that the cattle had been bitten by these venomous reptiles and died from the enects of the !oison, although no previ ous cases of the kind were known therea bouts. A couple of days after a snake aliout three feet long, of a dark limwn color, and w ith a spur-like protuberance on its tail, was killed 1 where the cattle had been pasturing. A ! couple of rattlesnakes were also killed in the 1 same place.

Ki.itok : I.y your crmissioti I will inform you and the many readers of your Iicr, why I am not a Ilemocrat, and why I am opiiosed to the Ieniocratic party. I am opposed to the Democratic party be cause that party passed the Fugitive Slave law of Is-'ki, which made charity and a com mon hospitality a punishable offense. I am o.sied to the Democratic party because that party, when in power liefore the war, said that the black man had no rights the white man was bound to respect. I am op- Hjsed to the Democratic party because that party, in lsi, said that it could find no pow er in the Constitution to coerce a state to keep it iu the Fnion. I am opposed to the Democratic party becanse that party was op posed to the war for the preservation of the I'nion. I am opiosed to the Denixratic party because that jiarty thought more of human slavery than the Union. I am op. posed to the Democratic Jiarty because that party has not yet quit weeping over the tomb of slavery. I am utterly disgusted with the Democratic party when I remember that jarty met iu National Convention in 184, when the Confederacy was struggling in the grip of death, and in the name of that party declared that " the war for the I'nion was a failure and should be stoptied." I am opKsed to the Democratic party be cause that party made an effort, during the war, to incite insurrection at the North and coiiii! the withdrawal of troops from the front to protect defenseless women and chil dren whose natural protectors were fighting Democrats ut the front. I am opposed to the Democratic party because that party refused to pay the National debt according to the Government's contract with Its creditors. I am opposed to the Democratic jiarty because that party has destroyed the freedom and purity of the ballot wherever it his the jiw er to do so. I am oposed to the Democrat ic party bemuse that I"urty has by fraud, perjury, murder and violence placed (i rover Cleveland in the presidential chair uud ob tained a majority in the lower house of the Fiftieth Congress by the same means. I am opposed to the Democratic party North for encouraging the South in her acts of law lessness and violence, and for bowing in self- abasement to the most dangerous iniquity of the ae. I can't vote for the Democratic nominees because every unrepentant rebel votes for them. I can't allord to vote the Democratic ticket because the majority of that party is made of relicls or rebel sympathizers. I can't justify myself in voting for the party that has become the receptacle anil dumping ground for the vilest and wickctest elements in American politics. Every man that is op Hed to our form of government ; every man that wants to do this country a harm; every man that would willingly undermine our institutions of freedom, philanthropy and religion, naturally votes the Democratic ticket. The Anarchist ami political thief makes his political home in the IK-moeratic party. The whisky ring, that wants no license, but free whisky, and no Sunday, are a jxiwer in the ranks of the Democracy. The Demo cratic paJty has distinguished itself by veto ing temperance measures and Jiension bills. Who wants to be a Democrat ? X. Cokli em e, Pa.. June 2o, l.SSS. Important Notice. The' soldiers' monument tj Somerset county's fallen defenders of the Fnion has been contracted for, and w:ll beshipiied by the firm as soon as convenient after the 1st day of August. The Post felt justified in directing the committee to place the order, although the fund has not been raised to the full amount needed to insure the success of the undertaking in every detail. It has be come evident from the prompt and liberal n-sponse already made, that the devotion of the people of Somerset county to the memo ry of its patriotic dead will not suffer the work of love, so well begun, to fail of com pletion. We have therefore gone forward, believing that we will be fully sustained, and now ask those, all over the county, who could not be ersonaliy called on, to assist in the erection of this beautiful and durable Soldiers' Monument.

Ooverner Hill having signed the bill which abolishes hanging as a pnnishment for murders committed after January 1, ISrKI, a tit of electricity as a means of execution may be made after that date. Coder the bill a prisoner sentenced to death shall be kept in solitary confinement, to be visited only by officers or relatives, a physician and his cler gyman and counsel, until the day of execu tion. The sentence is to designate only the week of execution, the day and hour being left to the discretion of the principal officer of the prison. The execution is to take place In private, and Is to be by means of electricity passed through the body of the condemned man. Various plant have been proposed to insure painless death without disfigurement of the body, the essentials be ing perfect contact with the electrodes, the arms of a chair, for example, and a curreut of great electromotive lorce. such as are used in are lightning. Execution by electric shock has often been proposed, but New York is the first State to provide for it by enactment. Senator. Edmunds on the Polltlca Situation. In an elaborate article in the Forum for July, Senator tieo. F. Elmunds will review the present political situation. He points out the reasons why he is a Republican, and in elfect constructs a political platform for this campaign. He goes over the history of the two parties, and shows that the two princi pal facts in Itemocratic history are a tenden cy to free trade and responsibility for the re bellion ; ami he recalls the criticism made of Republican government by the Democrats four years ago that Republican administra tions had been corrupt ; and the chief prom ise of the IVmocrats that there should be honest civil service reform. The Republican service has not been found corrupt, and practically all Republican ollice holders have been replaced by Democrats. The principles and aims of the Republican party are thus put by Senator Edmunds : (1) " The fullest defense and promotion at all times and in all places of equal political and civil rights of citizens of the Cnited States." '2) To aid in the increase of public edu cation by generous grants of money from the common tnasury." (.1) " To revise the details and correct the inequalities that may exist in the custom laws tiiou the broad and fundamental basis always of the constant protection and en couragement of every American production, every American industry, and every Ameri can laborer." (4.) " To diminish exuberant revenues by the reduction or abolition of internal taxa tion." (5) " To suppress and eradicate the de baucheries of the civil services." Excursion Tickets to Colorado. The Baltimore and Ohio R. R. Co. has placed on sale excursion tickets to Colorado Springs, Denver and Puhelo, olso to Yellow stone National Park, at greatly reduced rates.

CoUlnmad frum Second Voijc. TUB PLATFORM. The following is the platform of lxrt, adoHed by the Republican National Conven tion at Chicago : The Republican party of the United Siatts, assembled by their delegates in National Convention, pause on the threshold of their proceedings to honor the memory of their first great leader, the immortal champion of liberty and the rights of the people Abra ham Lini'oln ; and to cover also with wreaths of imperishable remembrance and gratitude the heroic names of our later leaders, who have rnor recently been called away from our councils Grant, Garfield, Arthur, Lo gan, Conkling. May their memories be faith fully cherished. We also recall with our greetings, and with prayer for his recovery, the name of one of our living heroes, whose memory will be treasured in the history of both Republicans and the Republic the name of that noble soldier and favoritechild of victory, Philip II. Sheridan. In the spirit of those great lea.lers, and of our own devotion to human liberty, and with that hostility to ail forms of despotism and oppression which is the fundamental idea of the Republican party, we send fra ternal congratulation to our fellow-Americans of Brazil upon their great act of emanci pation, which completed the abolition of slavery throughout the two American con tinents. We earnestly ho that we may soon congratulate our fellow-citizens of Irish birth upon the peaceful recovery of home-rule for Ireland. FBEE AXD llo.NXST BALLOT. We re-aflirm our unswerving devotion to the National Constitution and to the indis vduble union of the SliUes ; to theaiitoiiomy reserved fo the States under the Constitution, to the personal rights and liberties of citizens in all the States and Territories in the Fnion and especially to the supreme and sovereign riffht of every lawful citizen, rich or poor. native or foreign-born, white or black, to cist one free ballot in public elections, ami to have that ballot duly counted. We hold the free and honest jx .pillar ballot and the just and equal representation of all the people to be the founilation of our Republican (lov ernment. and demand effective legislation lo secure the integrity and purity of elections, which are the fountains of all public au thority. We charge that the present Ad ministration and the Democratic majority in Congress owe their existenceto u suppression ofthcbullot by a criminal nullification of the Constitution and laws of the Cnited States. PROTECTIVE TARIFF. We are uncompromisingly in favor of the American system of protection ; we protest against its destruction as proposed by the President and his urty. They serve the in terests of Europe ; we will support the inter ests of America. We accept the issue and confidently appeal to the people for their judgment. The protective system must be maintained. Its abandonment has always been followed by general disaster to all in terests, except those of the Usurer and the sheriff. We denounce the Mills bill as de structive to the general business, the lalior and the fanning interests of the country and we heartily endorse the consistent and patri otic action of the Republican Representatives in Congress in opposing its passage. We condemn the proiiositioii of the Demo cratic aily to place wool on the free list, and we insist that the duties thereon shall be adjusted and maintained so as to furnish full and adequate protection to the indus try. The Republican party would effect all needed reduction to the National revenues, by rc.ealing the taxes upon toliacco, which are an annoyance and burden to agriculture, and the lax uon spirits used in the orts and for mechanical polioses ; and by such re vision of the tantf laws as will tend to check imports of such articles as are produced by our people, the production of which gives employment to our labor and release from inqiort duties those articles of foreign pro duction (except luxuries the like of which cannot be produced at home. If there shall still remain a larger revenue than is requisite for the wants of the Government, we favor the entire repeal of the internal taxes, rather than the surrender of any part of onr pro tective system at the joint behest of the whis ky tnists and the agents of foreign manufac turers. rORElllX l-OTTBACT Z.AROR. We declare our hostility to the introduc tion imo this country of foreign contract la bor, alien to our civilization and our con stitution ; and we demand the rigid enforce ment of the existing laws against it, and fa vor such immediate legislation as will ex clude such labor from our shores. We declare our opposition to all combina tions of capital organized in trusts or other wise, to control arbitrarily the condition of trade among our citisens : and we recom mend to Congress and the State Legislatures, in their resjiective jurisdictions, such legisla tion as will prevent the execution of all schemes to oppress the j"ople by undue charges on their supplies, or by unjust rates for the trausiiortation of their product to market. We approve the legislation by Con gress to prevent alike unjust burdens and un fair discriminations between the Slates. I'L'BI.IC LA Mrs FOB AMERICANS. We reallinn the policy of appropriating the public lands of the I'niled States to 1 homesteads for American citizens anil set tlers, not aliens, which the Republican par ty established in 1SU2, against tlie persistent opposition of the Democrats in Congress, which has brought our great Western do main into such magnificent development. The restoration of unearned land-grants to the public domain for the use of actual set tlers, which was begun under the Adminis tration of President Arthur, should he con tinued. We deny that the Ieniucralic party has ever restored one acre to the people, but declare that by the joint action of Republi cans and Democrats 5O,0UO,0uO of acres of un earned lands originally granted for the con struction of railroads have been restored to ' the public domain, in pursuance of the con ditions inserted by the Republican party in the original grants. We charge the llemo cratin Administration with failure to execute the laws securing to settlers title to their homesteads, and with using appropriations made for that purpose to harrass innocent settlers with sides ami prosecutions under the false pretense of exposing frauds and vindicating the law. ADMiSSIOS or NEW STATE.-. The government by Congress of the Ter ritories is based uin necessity only, to the end that they may become States in the I'nion : therefore, whenever the conditions of population, materal resources, pnhlic in telligence and morality are such as to insure a staple local government I herein, the peo ple of such Territories should be permitted as a right inherit in them, to form for them selves Constitutions and State Governments and be admitted into the I'nion. Pending the preparation Sir Statehood, all officers thereof should be selected from the bona fide residents and citizens of the Territory wherein they are lo serve. South Dakota should of right be immediately admitted as a Slate in the Union, un.ler the Constitution framed anil adopted by her people, and we heartily indorse the action of the Re publican Senate in twice passim; bills for her admission. The renisal of the Iiemo eratic House of Representatives, for partisan purposes, to favorably consider these bills, is a wilful violation of the sacred American principles of local self-government and merits the condemnation of all just men. The pending bills in the Senate to enable the people of Washington, North Dakota and Montana Territories to form Constitu tion and establish State Governments, should be passed without unnecessary delay. The Republican party pledges itself to do all in its power to facilitate the admission of the Territories of New Mexico. Wyoming, Idaho and Arizona to the enjoyment of self-government as States, such of them as are now qualified, as soon as possible, and the others as soon as they may become so. rOLTCAT at'ST 00. The political power of the Mormon Church in territories as exercised in the past. Is a menace to free institutions, too danger- ons longer to he stiffens!. Therefore, i.1 pledge the Republican party lo appropriate legislation asserting tl.e sovereignty ut the Nation in all Territories where llie same ,'s qiHStioiitsl, and in furtherau.-e of t! at end to place upon liie statute l) ks cgis!ul:on stringent enough to divorce tlie political from the ecclesiastical power, ami thus stamp' out : he attendant wickedness of polygaray. The Republican party is in favor of the use of both gold and silver as money, an I condemns the policy of the LHruiocrat.c Ad minis: ratiou iu its effjrts to demjtictize silver. We demand the leduction of letter postage to 1 cent per ounce. In a Republic like ours, where the citizen is the sovereign and the official the servant, where no power is exercised except by the will of the people, it Is important that the sovereign the people should possess intel ligence. The free school is the promoter of that intelligence which is to preserve us a free Nation ; therefore, the State or Nation, or both combined, should support a free insti tutions of learning sulUcienl to at'ord to every child growing np in the land the op portunity of a good common school educa tion. AUEofATE VTION L A CiRolCI.lTloNs. We earnestly recommend Cat prompt ac tion be titkeii by Congress iu the eti iutincnt of such legislation as will best secure the re- habilitaion of our American merchant ma- j rine. ami we protest mr-iinst the passage by Congress of a free-ship bill as calculated to work injustice to labor by lessening the wa ges of llnse engaged in preparing materials, as well as those directly employed in our ship-yards. ! We demand appropriations for thecarly n- ' building of our navy ; for the construction of coast fort i fii at Ions aud modern or.h:an:-e, ! and other iicpro.ed means of modern de- ' fense for the protection of our ni f.':;s,'Ie-s ' harbors and cities ; fl.rthe pnymeiit of just i pensions to our soldiers: f.r ncei-:iry works J of National ir.iiK.nance in the improvement i of harbors a;;d the channels of internal, ; coast-wise and foreign commerce: for the i encouragement of the shipping in'.ere.-ts of 1 the Atlantic, 'oilt' and Pacific States, as well j as for the kiviii- lit of lite 111.

We alllrni this to be far l etter for our coun try than the Democratic policy of loaning the Government's r.ioncy without interest to "pet" banks. The conduct of foreign ntlairs by the .res ent Administration has iecii distinguished by its ineiliciency and its cowardice. Hav ing wit ii.Ir.iwn from the Senate all pending treaties effected by Republican Administra tion for the removal of foreign burdens and restrictions upon our commerce and Sir its extension into better markets, it has nciCer j effected nor proposed any others in tl.eir j stead. Professing adherent e to the Monroe i doctrine, it has s-eii wilh idle cotnp!.esarn.v j the extension of foreign iu.liicncc in Central i Amenca and of foreign trad e every w 11. re among our iieigl.U.rs.

We arraign the present iMuocratic Ad ministration for its weak and unpatriotic treatment of the fisheries ipuestion, ami its pusillanimous surrender of the essential privileges to which our fishing vessels are entitled in Canadian ports under the treaty of IMS. the recipnical maritime legislation of l.'tl. and the .ornity of Nations, and j which Canadian fishing vessels nv; ive in j the ports ol the Cnited States. We condemn the policy of the present Administration and the Democratic majority in Congre-s to wards our fisheries as unfriendly and con spicuously unpatriotic, and as tending to de stroy a valuable National indu-try and an indispensable resource of defense against a foreign tiiemy. The name of" American appli.-s aTke to ail citizens of the Ileptib!;.-. and imp. s, s n;,!i all alike the snine obligation of olicK. to the laws. At tiie same time, that citizenship is, and must he, the panoply and safe-g lar 1 of him who wears it, and protects iiim, whether high or low, rich or p.s.r, in all bis civil rights, u should and must aliord him i protection at home, and follow and prot.s t j him abroad, in w hatever laicl be may he on ! a lawful errand. The men who abandoned the Republican j party in lssj, and eouiiniie to adhere to tl.e j Dem.sT.itii' party, have deserted not on'.y I the cans, of honest government, ef v.'ti:il I finance, of freedom and purity of the ballot, but es; -i:iMy h-.ive il.'s-ried the cause of re j form in the civil service. We will not fail to keep our pledges liecaus'' lliey have br. ken ' theirs, or because their candidate has broken : his. We, therefore, n f it our declaration of lss4. to wit : "The reform of the civil : service, auspiciously begun under the ilcpub- i lican admiinstration, -should he c in.i.leied t by the future extension of the reform system, j already establish, d by law, to all the grades j of the service to which it is applicable.

The legislation of Congress should ! conform to the pledges made by a loyal jco- . pie. and lie so enlarged and extended ils to provide again.-t the K--ssih:li!y tJcit any man who honorably wore the Federal uniform shall become the in.riatc of an aim-h.n-e. ur dependent iism private charity. In the presence of a:i oversowing treasury it v.'.-u'd bea public scandal to do less for those whose valorous service preserved the GuvenimeM.
