Referring to the resolution of tbe Democratic State Convention of Penn sylvania, the New lork World, in a doable leaded editorial, exults over the fact that the Democratic party 'io the four most important, populous, and weal thy States of the Union, bury dead issues; and the party, to borrow a Scripture ex pression, is about to 'renew its strength like eagles.' There are signs' from every part of tho country, North and South, that the whole Democracy is resuming the progressive spirit which characterized it in the palmy days of its supremacy." John O. Barnwell, of the Univer- sity of Georgia, a gentleman or mucn learning and research, asserts that by taking the average rain fall of the past twenty years he canjredicate the amount of rain that must fall this year. He demonstrates that the summer must be excessively wet, fifteen inches of rain beiog due. rrnnniiranla isa tl Vass. The Democracy of Pennylvania held their State Convention, Wednesday, says the Nashville Banner, sad nominated Gen. Wilson McCandless for Auditor General, and James M. Cooper for Sur veyor General. Resolutions were adopt ed indicating that the party in that State is planted pquarely upon the broad, lib eral platform enunciated by Vallandig ham, in the Dayton resolutions. The following will eumce to show the spirit of the whole : Resolved, That we recognize the bind ing obligation of all the provisions of the Convention of the Unt'ed btates as they now exist, and we deprecate the ditcus eion of issues which have been settled in the manner and by tbe authority con stitutionally appointed. The great questions of the war having thus been placed beyond tbe contingency of being made disturbing elements, the canvass will turn more generally upon local issues, which never complicated party politics in Pennsylvania mare than at present. General Harlan and tbe Ken tucky Insurance Company. There are several thousand men, wo men, and children in Kentucky, who will be delighted to know that they are more indebted to General Harlan than to all others beeide, for the great publio bene factions conferred by the Kentucky In surance Company ; that while he was Attorney General of the State he pro cured the enactment of the charter ; was attorney for the company during its ex tstence, and since baa been patriotically administering on its estate, and pocket ed, out of the assessments upon the poli cy holders which have been made, and are atill being made, round sums by way of allowances as attorney's fee hia law partner being on the other side oi the case, and drawing like liberal fees from the defendants. The Kentucky Insu ranee Company may be regarded as one of General Harlan s pets a nice little family tub mill from which he and his law partner have realized not less man 20,000 of the money drawn from a too confiding and remedyless public through out the State of Kentucky. However, that is business and "business is bust ness," they say. Louisville Ledger. Tbe Next Legislature. From the Louisvilla Ledger. There will be pressing need of men of ability and experience in the next State Legislature; and if gentlemen who nave neither of these qualifications will presist . m a . aL . in tbrustinz tnemseivea lorwara, me Democracy of the various Representative and Senatorial districts should not delay in rebuking their pretentions by putting forward as their candidates men wno win have weight in tbe General Assembly. It is not every man who is qualified as a legislator: and aspirations of such Dem ocratio candidates as are not qualified, should no be engaged.

Special to the Union and Amerioan , Knoxville, May 27.There was an immense crowd of people in Knoxville to day, drawn hither by the Industrial Exposition, but mainly to hear ex Presi dent Johnson, who had been invited by the mechanics to address them on this occasion. The mechanics of Knoxville, as well as of Knox and the surrounding counties, were out in futl force, and there werO thousands of other citizens. At an early hour is the morning a proces 6ion of mechanics and citizens was form ed, which was about a mile in length. President Johnson rode in a carriage iu that part of the procession composed of tailors. . After marching through several of the principal streets of the city the procession moved to the fair ground. Though the weather was excessively hot, and Mr. Johnson spoke under great dis advantages, owing to the coufined at mosphere in the Exposition building, and (he loud noise made by visitors walk ing Jti he upper story, he nevertheless tpats. . .V K . . XItai4rl tht he was proud "of "being amechanic htnself. He-said he would address his ludience in reference to measures involv ing the highest interests of the labor and mechanism of the country, and then spoke against the policy of the State in allowing penitentiary labor to come in conflict with honest labor ; as a general thing he thought prisons and penitentia ries did not tend to reformation of the criminal. In regard to capital and labor, he said that capital was always seeking to obtain labor on the most favorable terms, and labor was always seeking to obtain the highest wages. Referring to the late war, he said that England was no friend of the South, but was disposed to aid the South in her conflict with the North so as to weaken the power of a commer cial rival. The President spoke of the high position which the industrious and frugal mechanic might reach and in stanced his own case as an illustration he also spoke at some length of the Na tional debt, and said that the interest upon it was one hundred and fifty mil lions of dollars at six per cent. This had to be paid by the labor of the coun try; no nation had ever yet paid any large public debt without repudiation. The debt contracted in the revolutiona ry war was nearly all repudiated. But we had not the right to make this debt permanent. He said it would be just and equitable that tbe six per cent, paid by the government as interest, should be applied to the reduction of the principal in semi annual instalments, which in sixteen years and eight moaths would liquidate the entire national debt. Mr. Johnson also discussed the constitution, and said that every good citizen should cling to it as the chiei ark of hia safety. Tbe President was frequently applauded during the delivery of his remarks, and at tbe conclusion was enthusiastically cheered. Acocsta, Ga., May 26. Jefferson Davis arrived here last evening, when be was serenaded at the Planter's Hotel, and to day held a reception. Mayor Estes tendered the hospitalities of the city. In response to repeated calls and cheers, he made h?s appearance on tbe balcony of the hotel, wheu he was in troduced by Henry W. Hilliard. Mr. Davis said he recognized the peculiar claims Georgia had upon him, and him self upon Georgia, for in the ancient city of Augusta bis father had identified him self with tbe revolutionary struggle lor liberty. If the late strugsle tor the principles of constitutional liberty had been crime, 'twas bis misfortune, for which he had fully suffered. He was aware of the eagerness which every word he might utter was watched for and mis represented. He wanted to be silent, not from apprehensions of the result to himself individually, but his utterances were made to affect the interest of the Southern people. He did not conceive that the principles of the Lost Cause were dead, or that the truth should re main crushed. He counselled fortitude and forbearance, believing that tbe South could afford to be patient under her wrongs till the return of justice achieved the rights of every free man of the period, to which he confidently looked. With his feeling, he was fearful to trust himself to speak, because he could not think one thing and speak another. He looked forward, however, to the time when he might with propriety speak to his fellow-citizens as his heart moved him, and bade them farewell, expressing a hope that God would be with them. President Uoss Mr. Editor: For one, lam exceedingly glad to see the exposure of the outrage ous and unlawful monopoly, for horse taminff purposes, by Mr. Grant, of the grounds south of the executive mansion, and wmcn nave always Deen usea xor tne convenience and pleasure of the publio. The surly and improper persons employ ed by Mr. Grant, with orders' to for bidany man woman, or child passing through or restiug themselves in these grounds, only intensifies tbe outrage He is an usurper and trespasser himself, when he thus monopolizes and appropri tea to his private use publio parks and publio property. If the Dent family; with its numerous "retinue" . of pimp and hangers-od; if the Grant family and staff can and do, thus outrage decency, let us point the finger of public scorn at them, and if they remain unmoved there by, let us go to the people's" representa tives and demand redress some enact rsent to protect the public in their rights Shameful and shameless is tbe exclusion by Grant of those who would enjoy tbe 6hsde and retirement of these delightful parks. We protest, and demand our rights, as against all publio monopolists and official assumptions.

Terrible Disaster In a Coal nine, j Pittson. Pa., May 27. The West Pittson Shaft, owned by the Lehigh Val ley Railroad, and worked by Blake & Co., New York, is one outlet, and the miners are in fearful danger. LATER. Some men have been saved. The scene about the shaft is one of great distress and anguish. Two fire engines from Scranton and one from Wilkesbarre are on the ground. It is thought no water can be thrown into tbe shaf t from the top, but it is said the shaft will fill with water in twenty four hour; so even if the poor fellow are not suffocated, they must drown. There is apparently no escape for them. From thirty five to forty men and boys are in the mine. STILL LATER. The fire engines are playing on the ruins, which are so hot that they cannot probably approach them before morning. A dog has just been sent down the shaft of the mine, and was brought up alive, which fact encourages the belief that the men may yet be saved. " ,J" ""' '""' 'From' tne rhiladelphra'Ecord. "- A Parody of Justice. A curious and instructive example of the abuses possible under the present system of iropanneliog juries in the courts of this city was afforded in the court of quarter sessions on Tuesday. This amus ing and anomalous parody of justice was duly reported in the local columns of the Public Record yesterday, and con sisted in tbe calling of three citizens to act as jurymen, not one of whom under-, stood a word of the English language or had the least intelligent idea of the po sition he was expecting to occupy or the duties he had been selected to proform. This, of itself, was ludicrous enough, but tbe farce ran a great risk of being transformed into a tragedy, when one of these men was actually impanneled, in ducted into the jury-box, suffered to listen to testimony in a tongue which was, to him, mere gibberish, and finally allowed to record bis virdict in the case under trial, upon the strength of an "ex planation civen him by an interpreted after the case bad been dismissed and tbe jury had retired for consultation. Railroads Must Protect Passen gers. Tbe duty of railroad companies not only to carry passengers safely, but also to protect them from annoyance and in sult, has just been judicially declared in a suit against a railway company in Maine. The plaintiff in the suit, being in one of the company's cars, surrender ed his ticket on demand to abreakeman. Shortly after, the brakeman, without provocation, approached the plaintiff in bis seat, and, accosting him in a loud voice, denied that he had seen or receiv ed the ticket, called him a liar, charged him with trying to evade the payment of bis fare, and with having done so before; and, leaning over" him and bringing his fisfMown close to his face, violently shook it there, and threatened to split there on the spot, with much more to the- same effect. The defendants, although well knowing tbebrakeman's misconduct, did not discharge him, but retained him in his place, which he continued to oc cupy at the time of the trial. The jury was instructed that the case was a prop er one for exemplary damages, and they returned a verdict for$8,S50, which the court declined to set aside, laying down the law as follows : "The carrier's obligation is to carry his passenger safely and properly, and to treat him respectfully; and, if he in trusts the performance of this duty to his servants, the law holds him responsi ble for the manner in which they exe cute the trust. The law seems to be now well settled that the carrier is obliged to protect his passenger from violence and insult from whatever source arising. He is not regarded as an insurer of bis pas senger's safety against every possible source of danger, but he is bound to use all reasonable precautions as human judgment and foresight are capable of to make his passengers journey sate ana comfortab'e. He must not only protect his passenger against the violence and insults of strangers and co paspengers, but a fortiori against tbe violence and insults of his own servants. If this duty to the passenger is not performed, if this protection is not furnished, but, on the contrary, the passenger is assault ed and insulted through the negligence or willful misconduct of the carrier's, servant, the carrier is necessarily re sponsible." Canadian Annexation. 'A innintinn baa been called bv the - v Dominion Annexation Society to meet at Niagara Falls on July 4. Annexation has not been much agitated in Canada of late. Tbe question was indirectly an issue in the late Novo Scotia election. and is apparently losing ground. The party opposed to conteaeratton, wnicn party embraces all tbe annexationists of that Province, though retaining a majori ty of the .Legislature, lost several mem hera. Previous to the election tbe ar gument was used by the Confederaliuuists that a victory tor tne opposition wouia be one in favor of annexation to the United States, and the result shows that in Nova Scotia Annexation is not so popular as it was four years ago. If this feeling has extended throughout Caunda, the time for holding the convention is inauspicious. Tbe Canadian advocates of annexation have also made another mistake. The convention as called, will, if all the delegates attend, be so large a o. unvUldlv. Two delegates from each Congressional District of the United States, and two from each Parliamentary District of the Dominion, will, if all end delegates, make a convention con aiderably larger than our National nomi naling conventions. But aa the interest ;n .nnomiinn on this side of the line is confined to a small circle, there is danger that the convention will be so palpable a failure as to extinguish, for the present, the hopes of its promoters.

Near the thriving little city of Win chester, in this State, says a St. Louis paper, lives the most singular specimen of the hermit to be found probably any where in all this country, li is log cabin, sitting like "a ragged beggar," about two hundred yards to the right of the road from Winchester to Boonsborough ' seldom fails to attract the eye of the traveler in those parts. "Squat like a toad," as if tryiog to burrow itself un der ground and out of mortal sight, its low, flat root, its dumpy, daubed, dirt chimney, its ten inch window, all seem constructed with the special view of re pelling the approach oi man. Shut up in this den, the monarch of all he surveys, another, and this time a voluntary, Alexander Selkirk, dwells the hermit son of one of the wealthiest men in the neighborhood Coalby Quissen berry, J r. Many years ago Coalby Quissenberry, drifted out to Texas with the young men who were seeking fortunes in that gol den land He was then gay, fond of company, and in every way companion able. Butinafew months he put in an appearance very unexpectedly, at home, gloomy, sullen and reticent. His antipathy to tbe female sex was so strong that he refused to speak to his Mother, or to tolerate her or any other woman in his presence. He was devel oped into a thorough misanthrope, with a peculiar mania against the female sex generally, both brute and. human. These facts the writer . got from a, friend a few months ago, as he was ri ding by tbe hermit's cabin, and being deeply impressed with the character.of the sinjular subiect. sujrsested that we ' !. .,T.l -TAo. .nl SnlarirriiirfllllvmrKfK KUUUIU HUD UJ U kULbl iv.

He would burn the gate you rode through, the tree you hitched to, and alnfostdig up, and haul away the very soil you rode over in his inclosure." Finding we were aback of one of the disfranchised animals, it was with con siderable disappointment we were com pelled to forego an interview. He has soaght this most secluded spot of tbe family lands to build his cabin. His hair and beard grows in wild confusion ; he makes his own garments, which hang loosely and awkwardly about him, tills his own corn and potats- patch, grinds his own meal on a hand mill, does his own cooking, washing, &c, and steals out but once a month-at night, to garner up such things as he is indebted to tbe outside world for, and beyond this will admit of no intercourse with men. As to whether he conceived his aver sion to ''the sex" from a jilting he re ceived in Texas, or elsewhere, he has never spoken. In fact, he has not been heard to speak a dozen words in as many years. ".Look there, Bia our inena, -ao you see that fence panel entirely gone? Well, a few days since, a negro woman passing through the neighboring farms, crossed Quissenberry's fence, and he burnt every rail of the pannel ahe climb ed over. He will have nothing female about him. Mares, cows, hens, pigs, everything, in fact, that is cursed with the 'female form divine,' throws him into a perfect state of frenzy." Hard Deds. Tha idea that the soft side of a tlank makes the best couch when one gets used to it. was long ago expounded. People who know "what is what," who read the oewspapers and mean to be somebody, don't believe a word of it. Those who have settled down to a Diogones in the tub life accept tbe doctrine. It is true that the tired man or woman will sleep soundly on a hard bed, and habit may make the hardness dear to them. It is also true that Napoleon's soldiers slept while on their march homeward from Russia, and some of them may have been attached to locomotion and slept united. Notwithstanding all this, those who have once felt the almost human kindness and warmth of a hair mattress beneath them, cannot go back to straw and hu6ks with out a pang. We do not recommend softness, but elasticity: Feathers, except in very cold weather, are unwholesome, because they retain an excess of warmth about the body, and also be cause they absorb the insensible prespiration thrown off by the pores, and permit the body, to reabsorb tho ovrmentitious matter. A bed of Brtft reh straw, evenly distributed and covered with a thin cotton or woollen miitrMD. mav be a good resting place. and furnish aweet sleep. But how can man or woman rise refreshed, from a couch of sinw or shuck matresses, which has been in nightly use without renewal for a series of years? Yet there are por tions of this very lana oi plenty where travelers put to sleep upon just snob beds as this.

We take the following from an address by Mr. L. Brecker, delivered before the Villa Eidge Horticultural Society, near Cario, 111. : Next to the growing of fruit, nodonbt, the packing and handling the Bame are the most important theme that address itself to tbe truit producers. And nrss of importance is the honesty of the par ty handling the same, ixo oneness ox fruit or skill in handling can atone, for want of good intention in making the package, and n the selection of fruit to fill it. Whatever the fruit it should be so packed as to give the party packing a reputation for reliability, so that as the merchant sees the brand he can at once say to tho proposed purchaser: "Her is a brand that 1 can recommend, mis man I Know, and he always packs bid fruit honestly ; and aa this package ap pears on the surlace you will nod it an tbe way through." Secondly. Great care and discrimin ation are necessary to have the fruit in tho proper state of ripeness, lest it be condemned on account of its immaturity, and thus brine loss to ita shipper, or else, perhaps, be over-ripe, and thuH by deoax. ""K aaa-A"C3giD&1pg?-- llViiither-joutJ'ruittiwai -0 tear or distant market, must also be oocnU ered ; for, if for home, or near market, it should be much more nearly ripe, than if designed to go a long distance. And the fact that fruit while inJackagea and in transition ripeas faster in warm than in cold, or even .pool weather, is a fact that can profitably be borne in mind by the shipper. ' In shipping peaches the basket is so self evident 'superior to the box, that it has been a matter of mucn surprise to me, that men should even seem to bo sat isfied with boxes instead continually urging that a change should be mado in our shipping facilities so as to enable us to use the basket instead of the box. True, that Would necessitate a modifica tion of tbe interior construction of tbe .a t . m car wbicu carries tuem; nut wnat oi that? Would it not enable our fruit to reach the consumer in a better condition, and as a consequence bring the producer a higher, price, and, as a consequence again, cause a larger amount of peaches to oe sent ana inus aiso increase iu profits of the railroad carrying them ? Peaches that are packed in boxes, as well as all otber tree fruit, should Le packed with great care,- ao that while the boxes are sufficiently full to prevent the fruit from moving within them and thus causing bruises and damage, ye they should not be so full as to cause the sides to bulge out, lest by piling many boxes on top of each other the sides become pressed back again, and thus the fruit become seriously damaged. In shipping tine peaches it will often pay well to put them up in pferl like lemons and oranges are packed. I am exceedingly reluctant to speak about pears in the presence ofthoso who have made that fruit so Ch more a study than I have as yethaatbe oppor tunity of doing, yet it is well known that tbe pearls one of our very finest fruits and perhaps the most valuable of all of them. With few exceptions, tho pear ripens win v-wi l rum ius tree uciure it ia iuiiv luaiutcu. . t . -r : r..n . n .-..,. and ripened in the house; and the prop er time for pulling is supposed to be when the stem will part from the bough, on tbe fruit being lifteGtlp. They should, of course, be handle1!' -ith great care, and the very best way to ship them is to pack them in soft hay, and in boxes with stiff sides ao that they my not be bruised by the side of the "box beiog bent in. But there is another element which enters into the question of handling pears. The pear is a fruit that is by no means so common as it should be, snd it is not at all difficult to find men uod wo men of even middle age, who have sel dom, or perhaps never, eaten a pear; and this very fact shows the importance of extending the culture of this most deli cious fruit. Many persons who have, all their lives, been accustomed to pears, have regarded themas being" a peculiar ly summer fruit; but our modern pear growers knew that the winter varieties, if properly kept, are commercially the moHt valuable ; and how thus to keep them is an important question. We believe the best way to bv to keep them in a dry and cool cellar, but little -above the freezing point, laid on shelves or benches where there would not be many to press on each other, and where they could easily be examined, atid the ripe ones eent to market as they ripen. The darker and cooler they are kept (onlysothsy don't freeze) the slower they will ripen, and if it is desired to hasten their ripening they should be brought to the light and warmth; but in all cases should only be forwarded at such a time as to reach their destination in their most eatable condition. The same rule exactly will apply to apples; but they not beiog of as much dollar value, it is not so imperatively necessary to take such pains with tbem. But even they common aa they are will well repay any intelligent labor that may be spent in their care, more espe cially the winter varieties. In shipping in boxes observe tho rules laid dowo in this essay; and in shipping in barrels, removo the bottom aoi com mence packing on the head by carefully laying a layer of the finest pnes of uni form size, and then carefully fill up the barrel with apples of as near the same size as may be, and of the same variety, carefully rejecting all such fruit as you would not like to' buy yourself, and all such as would likely become so by the time they reach their market; and al ways pack those of a uniform sizi in the same package, as a barrel filled with uni form medium sized ones will sell better than a barrel of large oncs"with a few smatl ones amongst them. And us fruit men work for character, as wel as for money, in attjrour packages, ck as much of the Golden Rule as good fruit will permit, and let your motto . be Lx celsior, and you will be happy, though you may never be rich." Josh 'Billings says: "Most people decline to learn only by their o a expe rience, I guess they are mori than k.if .inhc fnr T don't s'rtoaa a man could get a'corraot idea of mousses oaa- dy merely by letting another leuer tast it for Lim."
