The peneral sniHsh up of the Democratic party is everywhere conce lel, and tliat was just what was need ed to restore confidence and start the wheels of business. That "slaughter house aud oin'U prave" which Henry Watterson, of Kentucky, limit a few years since, comes .juite handy just now, as the Democrats of liLs own State are filling Imth with the victims sacrificed in the internecine war raging over the free silver coinage issue in that renowned Commonwealth. Thk Convention of the IicpuMican licague of tlulw, held in the city of Cleveland last week, was a stujend uis alfair, more than two thousand dele-gati-s, rejirer'iiting every wvtion of the country, leing pres'iiL Not withstand ing t!ie efforts of some silver maniacs to commit the convention to a declara tion in favor of the unlimited coinage of silver, it wistly resolved that it had no power to commit the ItepuMican parly to that or any other issue in ad- vanv of tne authoritative deliverances of the next National Convention. Tiikke is considerable of a Judicial muddle over in ( invito County, and the administration of justiiv through the usual channel has liccn tcmjiorariiy K'.isjH-nded.

It is agreed that the former judge can not preside at the trial of causes. One of the associate juihjes is doubtful whether he is in ottiee or not and so, as the safest way out of the dilemma, all the courts of the county have I wen ad journed until July Mh, awaiting the appointment of a Judge. Meanwhile suitors are growling aud the "jail birds" aro kicking, on the ground that they are entitled to sjufdy tria'. Pre sumably the Coventor will put an end to the trouble within a few davs. State Ciiaikmax Cii.kkson has called the I republican State Conven tion to meet at Harrisburg on August sth. IJ. J. HavwiNMl, of Mercer County, is so far the only announced 4-andidatc for State Treasurer, and is therefore as good as nominated. The passage of the Supreme Court bill, however, will make necessary the nom ination of six llcpuhlican candidates for Judges of that court and to a great vxtent the appointments that will b made tv overnor Hastings will con trol the selection of these candidates by the Convention. Tiie only contest likely to arise in the Convention will lie over the selection of its presiding oflhvr and of Chairman of the State Central t oiuniittee. Over these posi tions there is some lad blood brewing. but we hojie for an amicable adjust ment before the meeting of the Con vention. It would lie a sorrv sight in deed to tee the splendid majority by which Coventor Hastings was elected split up,fritteredaway,its iutliieucelost, and party supremacy endangered by jHTsonal and factional uarrels.

Erief History of the Toll Eoadi of Somerset County. The first roads in the early aettlcment of Somerset county were mere trails, pas sable only for a footman or a pack horse. Such a thing as a wagon road throu h the country, covered w ith its primeval forest, was then unknown, and roads of that sort which had to tie the work of the axman, wero lieyond the means of any infant settlement. But, ow ing to the conflict for suprema cy on tho American continent that was on lietween the French and the Kitglish, wagon roads were a military necessity, ami therefore the first great thoronghfarea may 1 said to have lieen cut out and made by the armies, or at least under their Immediate prol.s-tioii. The advanced post of tho French mini the north and west toward the east was Fort limpiesne, (now Pittsburg) at tho confidence of the Monongahela and tho Allegheny. So long aa they held this iost there could bo no security for tho frontier set tlements of the Knglish that were being pushed forward from tho east. Then first the French must bo dislodged, and from this necessity camo tho Braddock Koad in 173. along and w ithitt two miles of the southern bonier of Somerset coun ty and crossing the south-western corner, aud the Forbes or (ireat Koad, which crossed the north of tho couuty and was made in 173$. These two road became the great thoronghfarea ltctw ecn the east aud the wast, and in time the settlers themselves made the roads needed to reach them. But in time tho want of a good road through the central part of tho county was felt Justhoro it may as well lie stated that Washington and Col. Baird cut a road front Fort Cumberland, Md., to Fort Bedford in 173S. This was almost the time the Forties Road was built, so that from Bedford there was an outlet towards Maryland and Virginia as well as towards eastern Pennsylvania. In tho year 1772 John Nicklow, James Wells, Jr., Thomas Kenton, John Fergu son and Kichard Brown, laid out a road leading from Bedford to the Youghio- gheny river, by way of the chub's of Stonyereek, Yough and Sew ickly. This is the earliest evidence we have of any road that passed through the central part of the county, and it became known as the i i lades Bond. In 17SJI, on resolution of tho Supreme Executive Council, Alexander Mcfcau, of Fayette county, James tiuthrie. of Westmoreland county, and John Skin ner, of Franklin county, were appointed commissioners to view tiie western road front Bedford to Pittsburg. In 17!K) tho survey was made, anil it is said to have been travtfrsud by tieneral Lee's army in 17!J, when on his way to tho western counties to put down tho Whisky In aurrection. This road liecame known as the old Pennsylvania Koad and seems to have superceded tho Forties I toad. It is hardly to be presumed that these roads that have heretofore loeu mention ed were very much, if any, Is-tter than tho poorest of our county roads of tiie present day, and something lietter was called for; and w e are now approaching tho era of the Turnpike Bond, as in the present day railroads are often talked of for years lx'fore they find their way into a community. So, in looking lack ward, it is quite evident that the inauguration of this system of Itetter roads was a work that required much tiuc, and that many ditihulties and obstacles were encount ered and hud to'lic oven-oiuc, Tiie fin,t original act providing for the incorporating of turnpike companies wh.tsif roads would pass through Somer set county, was p.-tssud in li-i. The ad in.rporuted tho Harrisburg A- Pittsburg Turnpike Company under the title; "The President, Managers & Company of HarrUburg Jk. Pittsburg Turnpike Co.," and the tloveruor was further authorized to aulMt-rlbu for a cer tain mimlfcr of share In behalf of tint Commonwealth. By act of Mh March, l.sI4, the tiovemor was authorized to ineorparate five com panies for the construction of this turn pike one of these companies was to con struct the road from Bedford to Somer set, another was to construct it from Som erset to tireeitsb'.irg. The first named company to be called "Tho President Managers A Company of the Bedford A Somerset Turnpike Koad Co." The other"Tho President Managers and Coiiit puny of the Somerset A7 Orccnshiirg Tiirnplko Uoad Co." This is also called See. No. 4, and the Bedford No. :, of the original road. When 23 persons had suii seriU'd Tup) shares of fitly dollars each, the companies could organise. The ( Jovernor was authorized t sulw scribe l-jtoi shares to each of these two roads or section. . By this It will appear that the road wu to pass through .Somerset But, by the act of Sth March, 1M3, this was changed and the roads were made to pass through Stoyestown, and tho names were changed to "Bedford Jt Stoyestow n Turnpike Co." and "Stoyestown A lireeiisburg Turn pike Co.," and the Jovernor was author ized to sii!scri!ie additional shares; ') shares to Stoyestown A (Sreenshurg, and &N) shares to Bedford A Stoyestow n. We arc not able to say what toil to this action. By act of 1 1th M arch, Isld, t he Jovernor was authorized to par an instalment of the State's suliscriptiou on completion of the first five miles of road, and a projsir- tionate part as each five miles was com plcted. The act of I.'ith March, ISlii, is to provide for the construction of a turnpike road from Washinirton, Pa., to intersect the HarrisbnrgA Pittsburg turnpike near lied ford; four companies to ! incorjiora ted to build the road from Washington Pa., by war of Williauisport, ltoblstovn Mount Pleasant, Somerset and the White Horse tavern to Bedford, on the tops of the Allegheny Mountain, laurel Hill aud Chestnut Kidge. The road is to lie not less than thirty feet wide, with an feet of ballast, at other jioiiits wider, and the grade is not to vary more than five de grees from the horizontal. There is also a proviso that in passing people mils! turn to the right, though there is an ex ception for one condition. The two companies in which Somerset county had any direct interest were in corporate! as the Somerset A Bedford Turnpike Co., and the Somerset A Mount Pleasant Turnpike Co. Tho subscription Isxiks for the stock were to lie closed when l.V shares of fifty dollars each had liccn suliscril!. The State to give aid to the amount of $l2,3il to each company. the a-t of 23th March, 123, the State silli- scrilied Snoo additional to each road. By a.-t of istu, tl.t,Iin; was given by the State to the SomeiSM't Jk Bedford Ttirit pikeCo. to pay its debts, (ireat care was exercised and the rights of creditors were very carefully guarded by the a-t; in all the State contributed 'M,t'iiii.m to this road and its total cost was $s5,2!7. The length of the Somerset A Bedford turn pike was or is thirty-three miles from Somerset to the intersection with the Harrisburg A Pittsburg road, four miles west of ISeWbrd. In 1S43 its tills were f,jl7; its expenses &V-1-1- The Somerset A Mount Pleasaut turnpike bad a length of 28 miles. In all it receiv ed State aid to the amount of 3,atti. Iu total cost w as In 1K40 iu tolls were f'i,2i!, and iu expenses were f.323. In l&sii the SUte appropriated $2n,(m0 to each of these roads to repair them. To turn backward again some yean, the work of constructing these roads took time. So far as the Somerset A Bed Ton 1 was concerned, it seems to have lieen an improvement of the old Glade Bond. The two mountains the Allegheny and Lau rel Hill were first turnpiked, five miles on the Allegheny and seven miles on I jiu re 1 1 1 ill. and this seems to have lecn dono as early as l.2lC Good inns and taverns existed all along iu line and in time the roads were destined to draw largely from the traffic of the Stoyestown AGreensburg route.

Along aliout IS'10 theso two turnpikes had become a favorito route with many travelers to the west from Bedford. Aliout the 1st of January, lHT'd, A. J. Be side A Slaymaker placed a fine lino of stages on tho route bctwecu Philadelphia A Pittsburgh, by way of Sunerset, which wero largely patronized Issnuse, lsing the shorter route, the journey consumed less time. Beforo tho era of railroads these roads were great thoroughfares, Imth for travel and Irallle.Jmt w hile they did not equal tho National road in this respect, yet it was no um-ommoii thing to see a half dozen stage coaches at one time, all going in the same direction, and as all produce from the west and all merchandise for it had to be hauled in w-agous, the roads were at all times crowded with huge tsiv ered wagons, drawn by four, six an sometimes eight horses, all large, sleek and well fed, ami at night dozens of these teams might Is? seen at almost every one of the w ayside taverns. The late James Parson was at one time engaged in this traffic and almost to the end ol" his life kept one of these big cov ered w agons and its team of big strong aud well groomed horses. The building of the Pennsylvania Bail road and the Baltimore A Ohio Kail road wro :ght a speedy and disastrous change tothe fortunes of turnpike roads. Tho long trains of coachist and wagons disap peared from the roads, the inns and tav ems were deserted, some of them entire' ly alian.Ioned, and others becamo simply farni houses, and scenes of bustle and activity a forgotten dream. Of course they died hard, but dr years a Ming! stag.j coach passed over them daily each way, but at last the travel did not sustain even these, and they gave way to th buck wagon. With the disappearance of the trnllie also disappeared the bills which made up the revenues of the road aud they speed ly fell into bad repair. For years their owners struggled to maintain them in Home sort of repair, but finally ahaud oned them and they have liecomu town bhiii roads. This t.x.k place alsiut the year lsMl, yet, it must lie said for them and their owners, that despite the clam or of the public, they were still, as : whole, the lM.-st roads in tho county, and even to-day there are few, if any, of our cottutr roads that are better than arc these old turnpikes. NoTK. We h ive n.it li n utile to ascertain the il.iti-s i:t which the stoyestown A llctlloid ami tiie sijoy.iowii a tir.-eiihiir Turnpists were aiuiiiii.nl. -.1. For ilieeii.l ol the Somerset Jk Moint ant JHc, see the plait k loat article, loK.iu iiig. f the great roads to the east there yet remains something to say of tho old Piku Is-twcen Somerset and Cumlicrhind, and its suooessor, the Plank load. This had huun prepared as a separate article, but we have decided to insert hero. KliiTolt THK I'l.AXK ItOAK. Ill the year ivy was granted a charter for the Somerset A CuinU'rhtn.l Turn piket'o. The commissioners were Chas. Ogle, George Chonicmiiug, Frederick Gehhart, George Weller, Jacob G. Miller, John Bniliakcr, Jacob Kennell, James Piatt and Henry Fuller. The patent was to issue w hen twenty or more persons w ould suliscribe two hundred shares of thest'X-k. The road was to lie not bsot than 4d feet and not over liAy fs: t wid and a twenty foot bed. It was to le two fiH t high in the center, w i ll dilchisi aud to he oolistrticttsl of substantial material. wood, gravel, stone, slate or tithcr hard miljsianci. Tho rKtd wasspeetlily constructeil and passed from Hiuierset thmugh Berlin and Wellersburg, reaching the National road at a point aliout three miles west of CumUirland. The road had the usual fortune of such Improvements. Along alsiitt lViil many ptroplo t.x.k to the notion that the making of good roads by macadamizing them w ith stone was in some way or other a mistake; that the proper thing to do was to lay them with plank, thus securing a solid, smooth roadway. Peoplo seemed to have run wild on the mutter. Lumber was plentiful aud cheap. It was Isilng hauled from Greenville to Cumberland, a distance of aliout twenty miles, nn. r sold thero for a dollar or less per hundred, for strictly first class pine stuff. Why not use it in making a first class road. It was proposed to convert the entire road from Cuinlierlaud lo West Newton Into a plank road. General Thomas Siiriver, of Cumlierlaiid, liecame inter ested in it and took the pr.iJi-.-t u p and I nm).-ted it so successfully that it was a go, and people along its line tuuibie.1 to it. Among a lot of other plank road legis lation a sort of an omnibus bill of the session of l.s. there was a section for the incoris.raiion of the Wellersburg A West Xewton Plank Koad Co., w ith Jo seph Marklc, John Bansold, J. is. W. Jones, Henry Baker, Bavid .avail, A J. Ogle, Isaac Ankeny, John Bruliaker, Daniel hep ley, George Kliiigauian, Jas, (iardner, Jn.i. C. l'ln miner, Kudolplt Bisise, J. It. Breuliaiii, '1 hos. Bcuford, Solomon Baer, M. A. Saiiuer. Henry Lit tle, Win. Colvin, C. P. Markle, Wm Hitchman, Ir. John Cover aud Samuel Philsou, or any five of them, as incorpo rator. There were to !h 4,(HO shares of 23 each. The road to 1st commenced in three years and completed in four. It was to lie on the lied of tho present road ironi vt ellersbttrg to vl est Acwton or otherwise. The ten old turnpike companies still held their franchises, aud of course had tho route. Tho question was how to dispose and get rid of them. There were smart people in those days as well as in theso later days of ours. There always arc such and the promoters of this scheme were equal to the occasion. Bike some people, these turnpike compa nies had managed to get into debt, aud a section was put into the law allow ing any one they happened to owe anything to get judgment ami have them sold out by the sheriff, and we presume thin was done at any rate they were made give way and the Plank Koad wtis sjieedi y built. As a general thing the plank were pnjy about eight or nine feet long; wcrp laid close together on the ground, a level lied having lteen prepared for them. Of course it made a good road fir the Cine being, but it soon wore ottL It wi s little more than a tdngle trae'i at most places. and the u h. -els of all wagons having to run pretty mtt.-h at the sttm-3 place, the plank wore linn, and the.i some wore away faster than their fel!ow s:nd it speedily liecame a very rough road, as any ono w ho ever drove over it can still testify. The plank in the -middle were still pretty good aud it tlteit liecame tho lash- ion, w henever it was p issibl ; to do so, to drive with one wheel in tin middle of the road ard the oilier ou s tl the end oi the p'ank, this prolonged the life of th" road for ma ty jct.s. di Hintmcnt and it never brought, iu enough, in tho way of tills, to keep it in anything like decent repair. Yet us Johnstown on the north and CuiiiiM-rl.iud on the east were tiie ouly two railroad )oints that the people of Somerset county could reach, this road enjoyed a considerable local trallic, w hich continued up to the time of tho completion of the Pittsburgh A Conin lls ville Bailroad in lsTI. But after that its existein-e waa a very sickly ono and it was in a very few years aban loiied along with the other township roads. Altogether the Slate of Pennsylvania at one time owned turnpike stock to tho amount of S2,'!l3,!i!s mi, which would rep resent the amount of aid given these en terprises of course, it whs scattered all over the State. Tho State realized but little from the investment in a direct manlier, yet, when their effect on the development of the natural resource of the State and the increase valuation brought to lands by g.ssl roads of any kind are considered, it was a paying in vestment.
