GRAND DEMONSTRATION IN THE

[From the MarUnsbnrg Statesman.I
The public rejoicing over the results of the
recent elections held last week in the city of
New York under the auapices of the Man
hattan Club, wia of a most brilliant character.
Among those who. made speeches upon that
occasion were Samnel J. Tilden, recently
elected governor of New York, Senator Thar
man of Ohio, Bayard of Delaware, Eaton of
Connecticut, and Stockton of New Jersey.?
It was indeed ? gathering, upon ver^ short
notioe, of the leaders of the democraoy of the
Union' Invitations by telegram were sent to
Horatio Seymour, Oeo Kemper of Virginia,
?Tohn Quincy Adams, William Gaston, the
governor elect from Massachusetts, Hon.
Charles J. Faulkner of this place, and others,
but not being able to be present at the cela
bration, they sent back replies which are pub
lished in the New York papers.
Mr. Faulkner was absent at the Jefferson
court when the invitation reached here on
Thursday. The following was his admirable

that response. You are as temperate in tri
umph as you were great in adversity. You
cherish malice to none, and are hostile only
to thieves, usurpers and tyrants."
The following, touching the party name,
from the Jackson (Tenn.) Wkiy nnd Tribune,
is aa sensible and logical as it is timely : "It 1a
time that all men in oar mid?t who have cher
ished a traditional hatred for the word Demo
crat should ceaae to do so. The party is com
posed of all that is best in material and prin
ciple in the two old parties. Since the war
in every locality where the new organization
?acting under a new namo?has been in
power, it has shown its liberality. The pres.
ent Governor of Tennessee was a Whig.?
The governor elect was * Whig The Gov
ernor of Kentucky was a Whig, and so was
the Governor of Missouri In nearly every
Southern State the highest offices in the gift
of the party have been given to those who
called themselves by >-ome other name in the
past, and it is time that the antipathies of the
old Whips were dead. In most instances
they are, but this old, larking feeling should
lade out utterly "
The Vice-Pkesident on the Elec
tions.? Vice-President Wilson given the
New York Tribune his views on the repub
lican defeat, and says the result shows the
necessity for a liberal and magnanimous policy.
With statesmen for republican leaders ho be

adays by Radidsl demagogues and the editors
ot what were lately Grant Administration
organs Well, we venture to say that the ne
groes will fare better under the administration
of the next Democratic President, whoever
he may be, than they have fared since the in
auguration of General Grant iu 1869 The
Democrats may promise less to the colored
race, hut they will give them more real bene
fits than the Radicals have given them. We
shall not be surprised it in 1876 two-thirds of
the negro voters in the South are found sup
porting the regular Democratic nominations.

named Young, under the following circum
stances : "A few nights ago old Mr. James
Young who lived on Stony creek, in this
county, went home in a state of intoxication
and lay down before the fire to take's D?p.?
Sometime during the night his clothes caught
fire, and not being able to extinguish the
flames, they were entirely consumed upon his
body, which was so badly burned that death
ensued the following morning. No one lived
in the house with this old man, and conse
quently no one was present to minister to his
relief and save him from his terrible death
Wheu found on tbe following day he was yet
alive and conscious, and recollected all about
how he came to meet his awful late."
Eight Children Nearly Killed bt
Gas from a Stove.?On Monday morning,
before daylight, J. A. Duhurst, residing on
Easton avenue. New Hrunswick, N. J., was
awakened by hearing one of his daughters fall
from her bed to the floor in the room above
that in which ho was sleeping, and on going
up stairs found that eight children, all of
whom slept io rooms connecting with each
other, were unconscious from tho effects of
eoal gas escaping from a stove in one of the
rooms. Had not one of them had strength
enough left to attempt to get up, and in the
attempt fallen on tho floor, awakening her

^SP^SOTA^UERTIFICATES OF ELECTION.?
Upon inquiry of Mr. Faulkner we learn that
he has reoeived fr?ui the commissioners con
ducting the elect'on at the Court-House but
eight, official certificates of the vote of their
counties ; to wit : Berkeley, Hampshire,
Hardy. Pocahontas. Randolph, Pendleton,
Webster and Tucker. No official certificates
have been reoeived from the other ten coun
ties of this congressional district. It is be
lieved that a fair construction of the law re
quires that one of the certificates shall be sent
to the Governor, another to the member elect,
and a third to bo deposited with the olerk of
the County Court, to be there preserved among
the archives of his offiee.

President Grant, and the Late Elec
Id his inaugural address delivered on tbe
4th of March, 1869, President Grant said:
"I shall, on all subjects, have a policy to
recommend, bat none to enforce against the
will of the people."
It remains to be seen whether the Pres
ident will snbtnit to the will of tbe people as
declared in the recent elections. Will he
withdraw the troops now engaged in harassing
the people of several of tbe States of the
Sonth with vexations and Irivoloos arrests,
against the declared will of the people, not
only of those States, bnt of tbe whole Union,
as unmistakably indicated in the elections that
have lately been held ?
A Woman Without Bones.
The social developments across the water
show a lamentable state of affairs dn? appa
rently to no otber cause than a deficiency of
backbone in one or two individuals.
When the disastrous consequences proceed
from the weakening of a part only of the
human framework, we sincerely trust that
there may b? no spreading of the disease de
veloped across tbe ocean in the person of an
Irish woman, who lived to see her entire
skeleton waste away until it was but a (ourth
part as heavy as a new born bab?.
The case occurred in Dublin, and may
truly be called extraordinary. The victim,
forty five years old, was a patient in an in
sane asylum. For five years she was confined
to her bed, complaining of no pain, but grad
ually becoming weaker, while dwindling in
stature until she lost half her height.
As the disease progressed," her limbs were
coiled up in every possible shape, the bones
becoming extremely light, soft, fragile, and
atrophied in every respect At death, all that
was left of her skeleton, including the skull,
weighed two pounds and a half. The number
of fractures was prodigious. The ribs were
in a hundred fragments. The head of the
humerus was bent; the fibulae were curved ;
the thigh bones and pelvis were huddled to
gether ; the bones of the vertebrae were
thinned and worn away across the front of
their bodies ; the lower jaw was atrophied and
broken into three pieces; the base of the
skull was cribiform all through. Had she
lived a little longer, it was thought that not
a vestige of a bono would have been left in
her body What ailed her no one could tell,
tho disease being almost unheard of and dif
ficult to diagnose, treat, or even name. Pro
fessor R. W. Smith, of Dublin University,
who brought the ease before the Pathological
Faculty, looked upon the condition of the
bones not as a disease but as a manifestation
of a diseased condition as yet unknown, pos?
sibly related to rickets.

tensive lines regulations requiring passenger
conductors to seat all passengers, and baggage
agents to handle baggage carefully ; prevent
ing news boys and gum-drop demons from
annoying passengers with importunities to
purchase their wares, or otherwise annoying
travelers; ordering no tickets to be sold to in
tozicated persons, and instituting other whole
some reforms. Many of the abuses these
rules are intended to check have been of long
standing, and the new order of things will
take away much of the petty annoyance at
present attending railway travel.
