R. DUNN KIOTO P.. TUESDAY MORNIKJAS. 16, JF7I. CcmmLnlcsllon. T ........ . . ti . En. Ri.pibi.icax: The report of tSeSuperintendeni of Common Schools in tbis State for 1871, reports llint there are lo,700 schools attended by 834,614 pupils, and supported at a cost of 88, 680,918.33 of which but 3,26,529.88 is paid for the salaries of tencliers, 1 -aving 14,654,388.45 to pay county tiperintendents and other expenses; o that of something over ten dollars expended for each pupil in the schools we get less than half hark in teaching. A Subscriber. Our cnr.Tspondcnt should also five the School Department credit for $3, 322.214.171.124 which was expended for the building and repairing of school houses during the year, which we are sure he will acknowledge was as important an item as the teaching itself, for the com tort and health of both children and teachers, are matters cf as much impor tance as the education of our youths. But we must confess that we arc at a loss to account for the large balance 1,265,124.94) of which $1,167,124. 94 is set dowii for contingencies ', since giving each of the 81 Superintendants $2,000 each, (and they don't get it) would only .take $162,000 of this large amount. Ed. At the Republican National Conven tion to be held in Philadelphia on the 6th of next June, each State is to be represented by twice as many delegates ns it has Senators and representatives in congress, and each organized ter ritory is to have two delegates, who shall be entitled to vote. This will give a total delegation of six hundred and fiAy-two members. In caliing the Con tention the committee recite the events which have transpired since the Con vention of 1863 was held, and remind th country that all the promises made by that Convention have been faith fully observed, and to a considerable extent fulfilled, and that the Republi can party confidently appeals to the people for contiuueJ support and coun tenance on the basis of its past record. The coining Convention will be, iu many respects the most important gathering of its kind ever held in the country. Woman Siffrage In Pennsylvania. In the Philadelphia Court of Nisi TriuH, Judge Sharswood delivered his ojjiuioii in the suit of Mrs. Burnhnm against the elect ion officers of her pre- einct for refusing her vote at the gen eral election of last October. The plaintiff claimed that she Was duly qualified in all respects accorliug to the constitution and laws of Pennsyl vania, while the defense held that she whs not a freeman in the sense in which that word is used in the Constitution. Judge Jsharswnod ruled that while the provisions of the ninth article of ihat lustrument, commonly called the Dee laration of Rights, extended to and in elude both sexes, and that when the words "mau" or "men are therein used they comprehend also women, and while it is equally clear that a woman who is born in this country or natural ized, as she may be under the acts o Congress, is a citizen as fully entitled to the protection of the government as a man, ami with a right tully to enjoy all the privileges wluc properly lie long to citizens, it does not follow that the elective franchise is one of their priv.leges. Thai is exclusively Icjiulut ed by the Constitution, which has ex cluded many citizens from it by rvasou of age, non-payment of taxes, iioii ' residence within the commonwealth -and the election district for a certain period of time. Neither had the amend ments to th Constitution of the United States any bearing on the question, since the right of the plaintitf to vote was not denied or abridged ' on account of race, color or previous condition of servitude." The only question was, whither the word "fi era in, " as em ployed in the Constitution of Pennsyl vania, was intended to confine the elec tive franchise to male citizens. After an exhaustive examinatou of the laws and precedents bearing on the subject, the Judge said that tne uniform con strtict;(,ns of the provincial charters and constitutions in which the word was employed as well as under the constitutions since the revolution, hits been iu accordance with the doctrine that none but males have the right, to vote, and that Pennsylvania had a uni form and uninterrupted usage of near ly two hundred years showing that women were never intended to p cess the elective franchise. Judgment was therefore reudertd fur the deieud ants. Fir and Fatal Explosion. At Fofter Station, on the A. V Eailroad, ou Saturday lust at about one o clock a spark from a passing locomotive set Crc to seveo cars which Lad fust been filled with oil for Thorn- as Kijig. of thi city, from Prentice, a 11 fn ko.Ii. Ahout the time 7nrebrokeout the upward bound the fire broke out tne upwaru uouui express train was at Scruhgrass and tbe Conductor wai tbr notified by telegraph of the fire. Th train start ed lor Foster ami three miles from the ceii of the disaster the pa-senger coaches were switched off" and the En gineer, Conductor, and two or three oilier, nea red the conflagration wild the locomotive, slopping about half a mile below. J. TIioiiihs liwinett, the engineer. Conductor Kerr, W. J. Hrun dred, of Oil City, and the rest uf the - . -- .1 . . . i i party mat came up ou mr locomotive, ' j .. ' . ,,, e,0ppillf, at ,le poiut of a curve about 200 feet from the burning cars, except Mr, Bennett, who continued his ap proach to the fire, notwithstanding the remonstrances of his companions. Just at this time and without any warning, except a slight rocking to and fro in its place on the car, one of the iron tanks exploded and was hurl ed through the air a distance cf about 400 feet, killing Mr.'Benuett instantly and severely burning Mr. Kerr and Mr. Brundred by scattering the burn, ingoil in its course. Mr. Bennett's body was fouud literally torn to pieces about 120 feet below wr.cre be hail stood, lie whs struck so focibly and and suddeuly by the flying tank that he was actually lifted out ot his boots, which were fouud uninjured short distance from where he had stood. The remainder of the party -scaped death by running under cover of the curve of the mad which was out of road which was out of the line of the track on which the burning cars stood. Mr. lieiinctt was a young man, and considered one of the most reliable engineers on the road. Spectator. -We take the following from the Clarion Democrat: A large new furnace, for manufac turing iron, with bituminous coal, is now being erected at Sliiro. Also an establishment for making fire brick. The brunch railroad to bligo will oe built the coming season. A town has been laid out at that point. 1 he en terprising proprietors are entitled to credit for doing so much to develop the resources of our county, and we have no doubt they will be well rewarded. It is the intention of the Literary Society conno ted with Carrier Semi nary, to arrange tor a course oi lec tures during the winter and spring. The object is that if there be a surplus of funds, over expenses, to apply it to the purchase of a library a much de sired addition to the institution. A lecture committee has been appiuted bv the society, and the first lecture will probably be given some time be- re the close ot the present term. 1 he lecturer will be duly announced when the arrangements are made. A meeting of the stockholders of the Clarion County Railroad, was lieid at Slieo, on the 8th iust., when ihe fol lowing Board of Directors whs elected fir the ensuing year, viz: W m. Phil lips, in. M. XjVoii, Duvid McLiay, W. W. Barr, D. E. Lyon.B. M. Means and Win. Richard, JJ. Col. J. f. Lyon was chosen President of ih. Board, and Capt. D. E. Lyon, Secre tary and Treasurer. It istheinten Hon ot the company to commence building a narrw-gauge railroad ear ly in the spring, fruin Lawsonham, on the Bennett's Brauch of the A. V. R. R., to Sligo the route having been located during the part autumn. A stroucr tffort will then be made to ex tend the road to Clarion, and our citi zens should put it through without fail. We clip the following items from the Erie Dispatch : Mrs. McGuire, who resides with her son-in-law near the foot ot Holland street,slipped on the ice near the house, Monday uoon, breaking her right thigh botie. cue was attended to by Dr. Speucer and all that was possible, was done to relieve her. but such uu injury ou a p rsou past middle age, is apt to be permanent. On Buuday evoning the barn of David Roberts, iu Waterford township about four miles northeast of Water- ford borough, was burned, wi'.h all its contents, consisting of three head uf tut cutt, twelve tous of liny, a qtiun .f cttnw ii mm!ii!v in -i i -lit iti nlii a large aniuunt ot funning iuiplcmcuts. 1 lie origin of the fire is not kuown. Rome time since, a man naned O'Mura, was discharged from the em ploy ot Kelcliani & ban nuler. He at tributed his discharge to foremaii Dougherty, in their employ, and on h riduy evening went to see about it. Dougherty wus ou top of a lumber nile 16 feel bigb, but, regardless ot consequences the other pitched in, aud they hait a rough and tumble tight up there. This was temporarily interrupt ed by the men falling in a clinch, over the edge. Luckily for both they fell on the side ou which there was an other lumber pile, though it was low eiiouyli to allow them seven or eiirht feet of a fall. Neither had any bones broken, but before they could recover from the etfccts id' the stunning shock, several other persons had got up there aud the tight wus stopped. f-utur day a warrant was sworn out tor O'Mura, but he got to hear of it and made lumselt very scarce when any of the blue coaled gentry hove iu sight. Ou Saturday evening Reed got after him, chased O'Mura down French street, aiotind the freight house and between the lumber piles at Finn's yard, but the fugitive executed a flank movement by taking the ice for a tramping gmuud, aud escaping. The following items are clipped from the R jhinan't Journal: Wo uve glad to learn that our friend y- 1 T- . . ..I - t c ft "J. "r -.6 - I . ' , b , .

The loss was not eiy heavy, but will be seriously felt by the family at this season of the year, as they are in very moderate cir cumstances. The neighbors are kind Iv aiding them, in their efforts to re build their house. At New Washington, on New Year's day, while a party of eight or ten men were engaged iu shooting mark with revolvers, one of the party was acci dentally shot, and several others very iiurrowiy escaped the same fate. It happened in this way : One of the re volvers would uot gootT readily. Mr. James Kelley, Handing back a few steps, undertook to explain to a iium of the party where to touch the trig ger, when, iu doing so, the pistol was accidentally discharged, the hall just grazing the abdomen of Dr. Ash Ben nett, pussing under the chins of two brothers named Thompson, slightly chafing the skin, and then entering the right temple of a young man named Francis Ner.pa&sitig upwards into the brain, where it longed. Voting Netf lingered until Friday uoon, when death ended his sufferings. He was about 23 years of age. Another sad warning to those who handle firearms. We take the following items from the Titusville Herald Sf yesterday: A day or two since a most terrible and fatal accident occurred in Rome township, in this couuty, to a man named 1 roil us Crosby. The unfortu nate man was engaged at work in Quinu's saw mill, in Rome township, when his foot slipped, and the teeth of the saw caught in the counter of his boot, throw ing him a foot uhove the saw. lie fell upon the saw, severed nearly in two, from his hip to thecrowu of his head, causing immediate death. The deceased leaves a wife and three chi.dren, dependent upon him tor sup- pott, ami wno are leit in entirely des titute circumstaocrs. A little son of Mr. Wm. Hahn was run over by - a wagon on I'rmikliii street, opposite the Fletcher block yes terday afternoon. Sir. Peter Hoffman nd his wife who were in tho wn iron at the time did not discover the little fel low until he had fallen under the horses heels. He was conveyed to the Bush House, where Dr. Reno examin ed his wounds, which fortunately proved not to be cf a dangerous character. Policman Miller, mean while, untitled Mr. Hahn, who speedily appeared and carried his child home. Lr. liarr - subsequently dressed the wounds which consisted of a deep flesh wound on the forehead, aud several Druises on tne lace. V We clip tbe following item in re gard to Union City, from the Times, published at that place: In reviewing the events of the year just closed we have just cause to be proud ot trie record of our town. Union City has never been in a more prosperous and promising cuuditiou than to-day. Our growth has been steady, rapid and healthy. New en terprises nave sprung up among us aud are prospering. Our business men are beginning to be awake to the im portance of the position Union is to hull among her sister towns, and to manifest that enterprise and public spirit without which, no town can permaueutly thrive, lowever great its uutural advantages. Our future pro gress as a town is more certainly u sii red than at any previous part of our history. It rests upon the business men and capitalists to see to it that we lose no ground this year that we lave gained in the past, and to take advauiuge of the coiistuutly recurring opportunities to build up Union City, aud thus benefit themselves. We take the following items from the Brook ville Republican : William Lamb, seut to Diiroout Aylum at the last May term of Court, died at that institution on IVlomlav lut-t. We understand that his friends have sent for his body, which will be interred at virsie,, The new M. E. Church in Knox towns-hip, we are requested to state, will be dedicated on bubhath.r ebruary 4th. A number of eminent divines nre ex pected to be present, aud a general in vitation to atteud is extended. We understand that work on the tunnel south of town is progressing on the lower end having pierced the hill about 220 feet, aud are progressing ut the rate of about fourteen feet per week. The bridge at the upper end is up, and work commenced iu earnest. In the proceedings of the District Court held at Erie, we find the follow ing in regard to Victoria C. Jackson, the accomplace of Turn er : The District Attorney stated that Victoria Jackson, convicted at last term uf being an accomplice with Joseph K. Turner, in defrauding the pension agency, had been a dune in the case, had already suffered six months imprisonment, and therefore be would move for a nolle prosequi, Hhe was discarged by proclamation of the Court.
