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,
386.26.1.51 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
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
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-

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

The object is that if there be a surplus

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.

Dougherty wus ou top of a lumber

consequences the other pitched in, aud
they hait a rough and tumble tight up

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

O'Mura, but he got to hear of it and
made lumselt very scarce when any of

On fcaturdsr, Deoerabor 19tb, 181,
the house of Mrs. Sumpstine, of Brady
township, with all its contents, was
consumed by fire. 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

when his foot slipped, and the teeth of
the saw caught in the counter of his

nearly in two, from his hip to thecrowu
of his head, causing immediate death.

horses heels. He was conveyed to the

Druises on tne lace.
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.
