It in silly for persons to stand on the door sill of a public place to talk. The senatorial convention will meet in Martinsburg on the 2Sth instant, and the congressional convention will meet iu the same place the next day._ Mills and manufacturing establishments all over the country, now that the tariff bill has been passed, are resuming, and in a lit tie while the hum ot industry wm the wails of the unemployed. It is stated the Chinese government has had offers of loans to the extent of one hun dred million pounds. The negotiations for the loan have already affected the price of silver—enhancing its market value. Mirages of Toronto, Canada, have been visible in New York. Absconding bank officials had better hoist umbrellas when they emerge from their hidiug places to avoid recognition by the operators in \\ all street. -—- -* «► As we listen daily to a good deal of ad verse criticism and even denunciation of Senators Camden and Faulkner, the conclu sion is forced upon us that the number of people who use nolhiog but their mouths when talking is as large as ever. The editor of the Advocate must be flush —flushed by victory perhaps! After set tling with the editor of the Spirit he is go iug to pay his respects to the editors ot the Register and Free Press. We are pleased somebody is going to pay aouiethiug. Du Monday the Senate bill was passed by. the House of" Representatives by a vote ot 132 against lOo placing sugar, iron and barb wire on the free list.— ll. •Sentinel. No, no ! The Senate bill did not put su f ar, iron ore, coal and barb wire on the free ist. __ Because of ill-health and a desire for a prolonged absence, l*. S. Senator McPher son, of New Jersey, was about to send in his resignation but was persuaded not to do so as, in a short time, the legislature wou.d fill the vacancy with a Republican, llis term expires in March next. The bills to put sugar, coal, ore anJ barb ed wire on the free list were reported trom the Senate finance committee Monday, most of them with amendments. Sugar, tor ex ample, was to have a 40 per cent, ad valorem duty and no “differential,” or protection for the refiners. As the viuorum in both houses has disappeared, there will be no more tariff legislation this session. The Georgia Farmers' Alliance has gone to pieces. After a stormy meeting held at Dublin, with only seventy-five delegates in attendance, this course was determined on. The leaders endeavored to effect an amal gamation with the Populist party, but it was detenuit ed to close out the business of the alliauce exchange, discontinue the publica tion of the Living Issue, and disband the order. A few days ago iu the Senate, when per mission was sought for the expenditure of a few thousand dollars to enable a couple of committees to seek relaxation ami informa tion during the recess by making a long trans continental trip, with the uecessary adjuncts. Senator Camden objected on the score of its being a costly and unnece-sary junketing tour,—inexcusable iu the present financial condition of the treasury. The _.. ... -- .1. Slont Fassett announced himself as a candidate for the gubernatorial nomination, through the Chemung county Republican convention at Klmira, N. \ ., last Thursday. This is ti e same Fassett that was beaten two hund.ed thousand votes by his Demo cratic opponent several years ago. He evi dently due.a’1 know when he’s whipped.— And, ex-Vice-President Morton, just return ed from Paris, whe/e be had two toes am putated, is seriously meditating upon the possibility of running the race. Week before the last The Free Press was a day late in making its appearance for reasons that were approved by its publisher: and the Advocate editor conceited that it was so ordered that the Advocate would not have time to reply, aud so remarked upou it* And last week it was pleased to observe that The Free Press came out “on time.” All we have to say in this connection is that last week the Advocate anticipated its usual hour—and, as the editor left awhile before publication, the paper might have been bet ter if edited and published later by the fore man and printer’s devil. In its issue of the 10th the Farmers’ Ad vocate said : “The Spirit is an organ and the ring turns the crank. It is Democratic for revenue.” The Spirit retorted : “Seven hundred dollars have never iuduced it to change its tunc.” Then the Advocate broke forth u follows: “We want to know what this means and thf Spirit ha- jot to my what it mean*. We mean business and demand a full explanation. You ean no longer slink behind a cowardly insinuation. We defied you long ago to make a specific charge, aud now we are going to force you to do it, or take voter and crawl oat a* best you can, etc.”— ; Immediately alter this “froth at the mouth" the editor of thr Advocate bird himself away to the seashore presumably to get “aand.” i The Brooklyn Citizen of August 12th tie- j roted a whole page to sketches and portraits >f Brooklynites who help make New \ork papers. In this galaxy of men who mold public opinion in the metropolis—men who watch over the best interests of the people , and yet are, in a measure, unknown—we find a portrait and brief sketch ol a gradu ate of The Free P*bw office—Thomas Dorsey Beall. The sketch, short of what it ought to be, is as follows: ■Thomas Dorsey Beall, lives at No. 143 Willow street, and is a hustler from Hus tlersville. He was born in Charles lown, W Va. where on the Virginia Jree Press he learned to set type. Ten years ago he came to New York, and worked on the Commercial Bulletin. He has been on the News for live years. Ihe worst jn which he takes most pride is when he beat the Evening World by five minutes on the last hanging in this State, the execution of John Green wald in the Raymond btreet Jail Mr. Beall has reported all theelectrocu »ions in Sing Sing, and “beat” Loth the bun and World in time in which the report ol the killing of Harris was out on the street.

Cn.tiRi'iltmi nmi voiaese, .— killed 1,000 of them. Thp details are so re markable as to raise some qustioa* of verac ity. The Chinese soldiers, it is stated, when they saw the Japs coming "like tigers, fell on their own swords, preferring suicide to death at the hands of the odious Japs. Some of those that did not suicide threw stink-pots, that by their evil odor killed, it is stated, more quickly than a rifle shot.— "Ono pot,” it is said, “cast among a dozen soldiers, killed every man inside of a few seconds.” Now that San FrancUoo has en tered the lists with Shanghai aud Tokio as a purveyor of war news, the public may cx pect somethiug picturesque. The rumor was freely pawed around at the Capitol yesterday that Secretary Car lisle would retire from the Cabinet aud that his place would be taken by Mr. Wilson, of West Virginia. Of course no verification or contradiciion of this rumor could be had from the personages pbiefly interested, but discussing the probability of the rumor proving well founded, one eminent Southern Congressman stated that Mr. Carlisle ex pressed his opinion that the Senate tar.IT bill was one of the best measures ever fram ed. and that, holding these views, Mr. Car lisle must naturally find himself at variance with the expressed opiuioua ot the President. — Washington yews l$th. The air is full of rumors kindred to the above , but, all the same, next week at this time Hon. Win. L.

TLe knights were drawn up n line, mouuted on handsome horses and lecorated in all tbe beautiful colors of the ■aiubow.

Shirley, after which Mr. Braxton Davenport, in a beiutiful, but appropriate, iddress delivered the charge to the knights, rhe riding was then commenced, at the end if which the judges, Messrs. J. A.

The queen with her maids of honor were as follows Miss Carry Grantham, Miss Sudie Timber lake, MUs Margaret ahirley and Miss Mamie LuRue. The coronation address was deliv ered by Mr. George Shirley, of Smithfield, in a brief but jointed oration. His remarks were witty and flowery. Supper was then announced, which had been spread by the ladies in the woods, where all the dainties that could tempt the appetite were prepared. After this was finished the young people ad |ourned totheschool housebuilding, where, under the strains of beautiful music, the light fantastic toe was tipped until the wee hours of the morning, when all departed with pleasant reminiscences of a well spent avening. X. Dr. M. W. Donavin, of the southern po lice district received a dispatch this morn ing from his brother, Mr. S. K. Donavin, of Delaware, 0., announcing the death of their mother. This event had been expected for the last three weeks, since which time Mrs. Donavin lins only been fully conscious nt intervals. On the 2flth of this month she Would have been i>4 years old. She was, in many respects, a remarkable woman ; so mucii so, in fact, that the editor of the Chris tian Advocate and Journal, of New York, on a visit to the Western University, at Dela ware, interviewed her for his paper, and said his letter would be incomplete without men tion of her as one of the prominent and well-known residents of the place. Her family was the first to cross the Susquehan na river and locate in the Cumberland \ al ley, Pa , and she resided there 72 years.— During the latter years of her life she was a great reader aud her memory was phe nomenal, she being able, up to within a few months of her death, to recall with minute particulars everything of importance since 1812. Dr. Donavin and his wife will go on to Delaware to the funeral, as the remains will be buried there beside those of her de ceased husband.—Baltimore Bart, Aug. 18. Col. S. K. Donavin, the son of the deceased lady mentioned, was tor several years a res ident of this town—so, also, was Dr. M. W. Douavin. We have heard Col.
