\Yueei.ino, May 27th, lb70.
Dkak Sentinel:?-Thinking you will
be glad to hear from this partot the country,
I drop a mere line assuring you of the
nattering circumstauees wider .which the
Council has met. (>ur two Bishops, with
quite a full delegation of clerical and lay
members are here, hard at work, developing
the best interests of the church.
Though geographically we are in West;
Virginia, yet "uru wc pleasantly reminded
bv the warm-hearted hospitality and:
kindly greeting extended us by the good
people of Wheeling, that we are yet with-1
in the metes and bounds of tha "Old Do-1
minion," the legislation of exigencies to
the contrary notwithstanding. We
And a goodly number ol the sons
iiiid daughters of our noble old
j ShcnandonYi Valley have settled
| here. Your correspondent is the
| lavorcd guest of one of them, and glad to
I number his host among the successful
business men of this prosperous city. Tho
population of this section has a large admixture
of foreign element in it, and of
course tho Roman Catholic Church is very
strong. The churches of the city are
large, and several of them in tine architectural
taste, es|k'eially the St. Matthew's
(Episcopal), in which the Council is sitting.
As your readers know that the
great business of this section is coal anil
iron, and like all other communities similarly
blessed with deposits ot mineral and
metalic wealth, the basis of its prosperity
is as strong as the mountains around us.
I lind the j>eople are still discussing the
reunion of the State, with the Capital located
at Staunton. * * *
The discussion here referred to must be
carried on very quietly. ?Wc linve heard
nothing of it.
The Land Robbery.
The additional Northern Pacific Railroad
bill, which has jnstpassed Congress,
grants an amount of land somewhere between
sixty and one hundred millions of
acres. Tlio reason why it cannot lie stated
more definitely is that the length of the
main line, from Lake Superior to Pugct's
Sound, is rtot known, and may he varied
to suit land acquisitions, and that a branch
to Portland Is authorized, with, u land
grant on the same terms, without any definite
starting luintor limit in length, and
which we judge will not be less than five
hundred miles long if a short Hue is chosen,
and which may be one thousand miles.
This indctiniteness, which was not in the
first grant, wns secured by this additional
The grant is 40 sections, or 25,000 acres
to the mile. According to the speech of
.1 tulge Thurman, in the night session on
this bill, the company has a belt of 120
miles broad the whole length of the main
and branch lines from which to select the
lands. It ban, in addition, a grant of a
oeu icet wide tor right or way, anci oi
as much additional land as the company
shall require tor any railroad structures,
or appurtenances. *It has also the rl^ht
to take materials from any public lands.
And it has specially granted to it by this
additional bill the power to mortgage this
entire grant and franehiact, so that the
whole can be absolutely sold and conveyed
under the mortgage.
Insliort, a company ofspeculators, without
being required to invest a dollar of
capital, is endowed with between sixty
and one hundred million acres of the best
I public lands, witli extraordinary privileges
| ol selection in a belt one hundred and
tweuty miles wide, and more than two
I thousand miles loug, and with this unli
Ijnited franchise ami most extraordinary
right of way, and with the privilege of
transferring it nil for such coBBideratlon as
it may lind convenient, before it has built
a roil of road, and without providing the
least security that the road will be built.
Congress has simply given to a company
ot n<tventurers territory for an umpire, and
.vastly more than means enough to build
jhe road, for them to speculate with.

The Coming Convention.
To the Wheeling Intelligencer:
Perhaps the Republican party has never
held a Suite Convention of as momentous
importance in its results to the party as
will follow the approaching Convention at
Parkersburg; and if there ever was a
time when wisdom, patience and forbearance
were nccessury, we opine it
will be there and then. Wo ns a party
should not let the lesson taught last year
pass unheeded. That we have been
strong and impregnable through unity in
other years is true; yet we must not done,
our eyes to the fact that our strength and
power are waning and the sad teachings
of divisions and discords in our ranks show
clearly that we must be united or party
and principle go to the wall. Past conflicting
opinions mid policies must be
amicably adjusted and a platform adopted
on which not only good and honest Republicans.
can sta'ud without scruple or
doubt, but which will show to an enlightened
world the honesty and sincerity of
our purjwaes. To do this we feel assured
will require the sagacity and wisdom of
the sane and the patriot.
Tim f?i invent inn railed i?t Pt. Pleasant.
whilst proposing no nominations, proposes
principles, which if adopted would soon
ring the knell of expiring republicanism.
These erroneous views must bo calmly,
dispassionately and patiently met.discussed
und ovurr-ome; .and by no menus let in( ( niUft'ry,
tranaltiioiu, wrangling and Uentcd
debates 'ensue; but let the declared
principles and nominees go before the
j>eople as the offspring of united luinnouy
and enthusiasm, with the members themselves
and the same exultant spirit will
prevade the people, and then united we
march to victory. Let this he done
though Uie session be prolonged a week.
Mako wise, deliberate selections of candidates
to bo supported by the people, mcai
of jlttmg character, rapacity, experience,
judgement and sterling integrity for the
ofllccs assigned them. This is an all im|)ortant
duty of the Convention, and we
hope the members may be slow to make
haste in their selections. Political partios
through all past ages have mado ihipwrecks
by anil through the agency of
political tricksters in forcing upon the
people unworthy persons whom their very
souls loathed; and . there are but three
alternatives, 1k>U the party, ignore the
polls, or swallow the nauseous uo.4e.
only wish harmonious nctlon, good nominees
ami a firm sound platform on which
all can stand. Conventions arc good if
fairly and honestly conducted, it not they
are *a curse and react upon their aiders
and abettors and the party. The next
Congress will open witli upwards of
twenty nne United States Senators, and
the results of this Convention may be felt
there, who knows?

The West Virginia Governorship?An
Ontside Opinion.
From tht Washington RtporUr.
The name of Hon. A. W. Campbell, o
Wheeling, Is being prominently mentioned
in connection with Gubernatorial honors
in West Virginia.
Mr. Cam obeli would make a strong
candidate. He is one of the ablest men
in the Slate, popular, energetic. and progressive.
Ill the mat struggle which
preceded tlic rebellion lie was one of tlic
principal leaders of the Union forrcs, ami
fought slavery and secession with the
power of a giant. Through the columns
or the Wheeling lNTELLtGE.SC*lt,of which
paper lie was then chief editor, as well as
from the stttmp, he dealt the most telling
blows against the treasonable movement
which had lor its object tho overthrow of
tho Government When the war broke
out lie became one ot the foremost figures
among the Union men In Western Virginia,
and an nctivo and powerful leader
in the movement which culminated in the
erection of a new Free State. To him
perh?]>a, more than any other one man is
due the credit of having interposed thai
barrier to the progress of the rebellion.
Mr. Campbell has not sought ofllces or
honors, but has modestly preferred to remain
in the background and allow others
to reap the rewards and favors consequent
upon the success which was no largely Indebted
to his labor and devotion. That
he has not asked should he the strongest
incentive to the people of West Virginia
to bestow. Irii tliese days of strife and
struggle and conspiracy for office, it is exceedingly
refreshing to tlnd a man amply
qualified in every regard, and with the
strongest claims upon the public,yet who
does not aspire to any position. It will be
safe for the people to take hold of such a
man and insift upta his being & candidate.
The Itepulilicans of Vrctft Virginia ha*e
this opportunity, and our opinio** of them
will be considerably lessened tt' they fail
to take advantage of it. They cannot lind
the superior, and scarcely the peer of Mr.
Campbell iu the State; they have no man
claims upon their gratitude; certainly
none who has higher c|iialil!cations for tlio
Executive chair, and we trust they will
insist upon seating him in it whether he
will agree to be a candidate or not.

i The J louse proceeded to the consideration
ol the bill to reduce Internal taxes.
In the course of the discussion, Mr.
Sahoent stated that an estimate he hud
i received from the Treasury Department
, showed that under the existing tariff and
revenue laws .there would be received into
the Treasure next year, from customs,
$18.1,000,000; from lands, $.1,000,000; fVoin
i miscellaneous sources, $28,000 000; making
a total of law,000,000. The estimated
expenditures were $291,000,000; which
would leave a surplus of $102,000,000. A
few days ago he had introduced a proposition
to reduce customs 10 per cent, and
internal revenue taxes 15 percent; to
take off tlie # inco/ne tax and abolish all
spcciftl tasea. This would leave a sprphu
of $22,400,000 i>er year, and he had calculated
that that sum used as a sinking fluid
would, in 34 years, extinguish the national
debt and leave a surplus.

was discussed, amended and passed. It

Arrest of two Lending Feninn Officers
at Mnlono.
3Ialo.se, June 1.
There is great excitement here over the
arrest hist night of the two principal officers
of the Fenians who have hitherto
eluded the United Suites officials, by
Deputy Marshal Titus. As the Marshal
was {Missing along the street he noticed
Mitfor Randolph Fitzjwitrick, of NewYork,
passing by with Colonel McNeil,
who was at the time supposed to .be
Mosby, and on pcrdclving the Marshal the
prisoners ran round a corner and dis
appeared. A hoy informed the Marshal
that tliev had secreted themselves in a
barn. Tho Marshal got a guard of
regulars, surrounded and entered the
barn and found Fiupatrick and McNeil.
They surrendered without resistance
and were brought to the guard
house and placed under a heavy
guard. Colonel McNeil and Fit 7.patrick
were undoubtedly the ablest olHi-pra
I'nnnected with the Fenian move
ment, and the fact that they were arrested
by mere cliance tends to show they meant
business. Tbev are well treated by the
United States officers, who respect them
for their courage and gentlemanly bearing.
Both will probably be arraigned bo.
fore United States Commission Brennan,
to-day. Fitznatrick and McNeil were
about leaving here by the 10 o'clock train
last night, when they were arrested.

Allegheny Cattle Market*
Mat 30, 1870.
Cattle.?The run of cattle was again
in excess of the demand, although not w
large ns the week previous, was considered
lair, twenty-four car, loads being the actual
number, in addition to several small
droves from this and adjacent counties
The demand, which was entirely local
was not supplied, and in the absenct
of Eastern buyers the market dragged
slow. For the bast cattle the market
opened brisk, and $10 per hundred
wus realized in one or two instances, bul
for common to medium the market wat
very dull. There were finite a number o:
the latter left over unsold. Prices for ex
tra cattle were a fraction higher, and foi
common a little lower than last week's
quotations. The season for grass cattle i?
said to be three weeks earlier than lasi
year, and even assuming this to be the
case, the prices will settle to a living ba
sis. Below will be found the sales:
Holmes, LalFerty & CJlass sold J10 heac'
prime steers at $0 00<f/>8 05.
Hazlewood it Blackstock sold 10 hear
Ohio stock, good to prime, at 25

cago at the same average.
Sheep?The supply was greatly in ex
ecss of the demand, although a largei
some time past. Thero was no inquirj
for shipment, ami tlio demand was entire

'i'here wan quite a number left over un
sold. Prices ruled with a downward ten
