CI,EAIIFIELD, PA.,' MAIL 2, isTa Governor Randolph, of New Jer-y, of course Democrat, recommends that the "' Soldiers Iloiiie in his State be abolished. Ttrcy have taste in Washington. . A cor respondent th:re informs the public that "the Shoo Fly retort is universally regarded as the neatest ihiuj done in Congress incc some ot Thud. Steven's tharp rejoinders." The Senate ot' Maine ha passed a resolu tioi declaring that all contracts made prior to February 25, 1SC.2, s-hall be settled in goU. This affirmation by legislative action r the recent dceiiou of the Supreme Court Is a significant indication of the current of public opinion. Two more Georgia Senators have had ere dentials presented in the United States Senate. This makes five altopetiier, in cluding lilodgett, who holds back until cer tain charges against him are canceled. Geor gia seems desirous of getting as much re- . construction as possible, even if it is not of the best quality. Xj. A. C. are the cabalistic initials of a new Democratic MJCret orderof a eemi-iuili-tary nature. They are said to stand for the same of this organization, and to mean Grand Army of the Constitution. The Vew suggest, in view of all the facts, that they represent and meau "Grand Army of the Confederacy." Some eur Democratic brethero are labor ing to show their readers "what the father taught." A Republican cotemporary sug gests that they taught "the young idea how to shoot," atl their sons went at it vigor onsly In i 861 and kept it up for four long years. . TJior-e, let rke Democratic press tell their readers that it is a short method of showing them "what the Fathers taught." The Democratic State Convention of Connecticut, have just passed a series of denunciatory resolutions against the fifteenth . amendment declaring,among other preAd atuite opinions, that it is the deadliest blow ever struck at our American liberties. The press returns thanks to the Democrats of Connecticut for thus "warning oft"' the col ored voters ftf tlie country from the Demo cratic litket. Judge Woodward and linn. S. S. Cox have been reading the 120th IValm to Con gress, and using it as an argument in sup port of the. general amnesty bill. This 1'salta celebrates the deliverance of Israel from captivity. Like everything else the Democratic leaders do, they do it too late. This psalm was read by all good men in J SG2, simultaneously with the promulgation of Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation. Mississiom stands a lrt restored to all her practical relations in the Union. The bill for her admission was signed by the President on the 23d, and, on the 24th her Representatives weren,ualified in the House. On Friday, one of her Senators took his seat in that body.

The school question is up in New York in a somewhat different shape from that in which they had it in Cincinnati. It is not a question for the courts there, but for the Legislature, which now has it in hand : and it docs not there refer to Bible reading in the schools, but to the special appropriation of money for the support of schools under the control of the Roman Catholic Church. The question there threatens to be even more disturbing than it was in the "Queen City;" and it now looks as though, if the agitation be carried on, the sectarian lines would be strictly drawn, and the most bane ful religious rancor aroused on both sides. "The Scalpers," is the name assumed by a faction of the Democratic party in New York city a not very inappropriate appel lation, surely ; for.during the rebellion tbey ' scalped" quite a number ot Union men in the streets of that city, and the "scalping" process is still a matter ef almost daily oc-. eurrence. But "scalpers," iu this instance, is only a political appellation a nomencla ture for which New York has long been fa mous. This year the opposing Democratic factions are known as the "Ilay-loft-and-cbeese press" wing, and the "Scalpers" the on indicating the rural, and the other the eity opponents of Tammany. Well, let 'em "scalp" one another as much as they please the people will be the gainers, by the process, in the end. A cotemporary says : A smart mulatto member of the Virginia Legislature made quite a sensatiou the other day by declaringi in debate, . Gentlemen, i have some of the best white blood of Virginia coui Jng in my veins. On one side I can claim as higha,:d honorable descent as any Sonator in this Chamber. Gentlemen, lam your brother; I am also the colored man's brother. I rep resent both races. I am an Anglo Saxon and an Anglo-African, and I desire to do justiceto my kin on both side." The South ern Democracy, when dealing with the col ored statesmen, should be Tery carefnl wliom tbey strike. It is not every white man South who knows his own brother. This able legislator, it seems, has not only gump tion enough to know his friends from his enemies, but to know who his relatives are as wtlL The pM F- F. V. pride will crop out sometimes. Trades Unions. A great depression of trade prevails eve rywhere on the Uuropeati coutinentaswell as in the United States and an universal de gree of attention Is being given to the sub ject. Wide differences of opinion prevail as to toe cause ot this unfavorable condition of business affairs each person's views doubt less being biassed by his immediate sur roundings and equally various are the propositions for relief that are advanced ; one favoring a protective tariff, another free trade, a third an cxpan.iion of the currency, but ali agreeing that an early resumption of specie payments would go far toward effect ing the desired result. With other indus trial classes, mjehanics of all kinds have ex perienced the full effects of the stringent times, and hence it is that in the cities they shouM form societies for the avowed pur pose of maintaining a high rate of wages, and of otherwise benefiting their members. It is aquestion.however.whether tho.ie labor pro'eeeive associations accomplish the ob j-?ct for which they are organized in our country. Certain is it that in Europe they have failed in their anticipated effect. In some bra iches of trade, business has either been destroyed or driven elsewhere by the harrastuents which have resulted from the rules, regulations or strikes of the Unions. This was the case with shipbuilding on the Thames. France is now filling the orders that used to come io England. A few years ago, England supplied locomotives to France, Germany, Austria, Holland, Brussels and Spain; now France, Germany, and Austria not otily supply most of the Continental de mand but even send them to England and India. Colliers dictate the price of coals : aud bad and dear bricks are forced upon the whole building trade by the brickmakers. In 1827-8 a seven weeks' strike terminated in a species of work (Gros de Naples, ) which then supplied 400 hand loom weavers, leav ing its district and driving it to Lancashire. In I347-8 anarticle (jet coids) employing on an average 500 looms, was driven away for similar causes. Since that time the manu facture of figured broad silks was attempted, but giveu up and driven to Middieton, Lan cash ire. In 18C1 a fancy velvet trade was being carefully cultured, but shared a like fate with the above-mentioned, and is gone to Germany. Other kinds of business have suffered in the same way. And now the English capitalist, if he has too much diffi culty with his workmen, quietly transfers his business to some other locality, to Scot land, and if that will Hot do, to Belgium, or Switzerland. He becomes rich bv this m- ration, whilst the workmen become propor tionately poorer. That the Trades' Unions are the natural offspring of the concentra tiDn of capital, and the formation of great monopolies ot various kinds, is not to be denied ; but the facts above mentioned are too significant to be passed by without thoughtful omisideration on the part of those who compose similar associations in the United State, and it is to be hoped that a jourse will be pursued which will tend to harmonize. intoal of Li25ln intg UuufliCl, the interests of labor and capital. This is the correct policy, and if adopted cannot fail to benefit all concerned. The Whittemore Cadeiahip Case, The case of B. F. Whittemore, member of Congress from the First District, South Carolina, convicted of selling two cadet ships, was finally disposed of in the House on Thursday ef hist week. He evaded ex pulsion by sending to the Speaker's Chair a communication covering a telegraphic dis patch tendering hrs resignation to the Gov ernor ot South Carolina, and another an nouncing the Governor's acceptance of the resignation. He attempted to address the House in defeuse or explanation of bis con : duct, but was stonncd hv i!iiSn,iilr trl. ' ' " roW to recognize him as a member. r'-i.VvtWns any longer a member cf the House, ho could not, ofcoursf, be expelled: i but in order to test the sense of the House in regard to his conduct, the following reso lution, offered by General Logan, was a dopted by a vote of lt5, no vote iu the negative : Uesuhrd, That B. F. Whittemore. late member from the rirst District of Souih Carolina, did make appointments to the Military Academy at West Point and to the Navy Academy at Annapolis, in viola tion of the laws, and that such appoint ments were influenced by pecuniary con sideration, and that his conduct in the prem-i-s has been such as to show him unworthy ot a seat in the House of Representatives, and theietord is un lemaad as condiu t un worthy of a representative of the people. There are said to be three or four other cases, almost as clear as WhittemoreVfthat will probably soon be reported to the House, which, should it retain its present temper that long, will make short work of these unprincipled men, who have partered both conscience and honor for gold. It is high time that legislative corruption is ferreted out and the guilty parties punished. The report of the Adjutant General of Pennsylvania, just issued, show.- t'le presence of a very considerable mili'ary spirit in our midst, and also proves that that spirit is on the increase. In IS67 there were but thirty eight 'companies of uniformed militia in existence in the whole state. In 1803 they had increased to seventy-eight companies. This year shows one hundred and sixty eight companies in actual organization and con dition for set vice, and, in addition, twenty five companies arc organising. Of the one hundred and seven companies organized during IXC9, fifty six, more than one-half, were raised in Philadelphia. The city oom pans are organized in regiments, which are in turn brigaded, forming the First Division I'ettsylvauia State Militia. At Par at Last. The New York Wnrll of Thursday, says : "TesLfrday (Wednes day 23d") the Government six per cents of 18S1 reached 117, which was the priej of gold during part of the afternoon. In other words, the sixes of 1881 were at par of gold. As this is the first time since the depreciation of our currency first began that Government of any kind have commanded the same price as gold, the day deserves to be remembered." Does not this statement involve something of a compliment to the administration of Geocrul Grant. Death of Ansca Burliagame Last week, the country was startled by tfiej announcement, by cable, of the death of Hon An; on Burlingamr( at St. Peteis burg. He was a native of Massachusetts, but, for the last two years, has been con spicuous in his native country, and at near ly every Capital in Europe, as the duly ac credited diplomatic representative of the Chinese Empire, lie first became eminent in publie life in bis own land, as a Congress man, elected f i om Massachusetts, seven' teen or eighteen years ago, ' on the over whelming wave of reactionary . sentiment, in that State, with which the free spirit ot the North protested against and denounced the base truekliug of the compromises of 1850. In Congress, Mr. Burlingame won a high and universal regard tor the.puiity of bis personal aud political character, for his loyal devotion to the cause of liberty, and for the marked ability of his represen tative career. Leaving Concress be was appointed by President Lincoln, our Min ister to CLiua, and continued to reside, as such, near the Government of Pekin, until it was determined by the latter to send its first formal embassy to the powers of the western world. It has alwsys been known that the influence of our own Miuister was most potent in persuading the Chine Gov ernment to this unprecedented step. It was not surprising, then, that the charge of this difficult trust should have been of fered to him by the Imperial authorities, or that, resigning his position as the Amer ican envoy at that Court he should have ac cepted thefce novel duties with prompti tude. As the Ambassador of China to the Re public and to the European powers, and ac companied by a large suite of Mandarins of high rank aud an almost royal retinue, our citizen of Massachusetts left the Flow ery Land, landing first upon our Pacific coast, nearly two years since, and had, up to this date, visited nearly every Capital in Christendom, bearing among his creden tials a roving commission as the representa tive of the oldest and most populous Em pire on the earth to all governments in the civilized world. This mission has had for its avowed ob jects, the inauguration of an international policy which should open the Chinese Em pire to the Western civilization, and lead to a better recognition of that Empire as an active member in the great family of na- 'tious. How much of this he bad already accom plished, or how much has beeu lost by hif death, both "to China and to the Chri.-tian West, is at present only a matter for spec ulation. We shall hope that the policy which he seemed ta be inaugurating so sue cessfully, until thus suddenly cut off, 'may not be abandoned, but be committed to oth er hands not less honest or capable, or en joying less the general conndence ot the world. Thj Watt-Diamond Case. The committee in tba Watt Diamond contested election case, met on Wednesday of last week, when the counsel on behalf of Mr. Watt presented a large mass of ovidence, chiefly consisting of returns filed in the Prothonotary's office. Nearly every one of these presented the fact that Mr. Watt had been grossly cheated in various wards. After Mr. Wntt's coun.1 had proven these irregularities, thay asked the com mittee to count one ot the divisions in the Fourth ward.' Mr. Diamond's counsel strenuously opposed this motion, but the committee decided, finally, to count the ballots, which they did, with the following result: W;itt, It: Diamond, 143. The original returns gave Mr. Watt but 147 votes ; I S votes less than he actual! re ceived. Tlie vote returned for Mr. Dia mond was 162, whilst lie had only 146 tick ets ta the box thus making a change of 34 votes in favor of Mr. Watt out of a poll of 311 votes. Mr. Watt gained 179 votes on the coUDt of the Third ward and the recount of the ' ballot-box of the Ninth precinct of the Fourth ward, before the Legislative com mittee. Thus far the investigation in this cise shows the most glaaring frauds on the part of the Democracy in Philadelphia, at the last general election. We presume, Mr. Watt will succeed in proving frauds sufficient to give him his seat iu the State Senate. Indiana Divorces. The Supreme Court of the United states has rendered a decision of importance to th ise interested in the legality Indiana divorces. The ease came up on an appeal from the Supreme court of the District of Columbia, which decided the Ind iana divorce laws void on each ot the subjects which it claims to dispose, vis: the divorce, the property and the children. The Supreme Court of the United States, Mr. Justice Swaynk rendering the decision, reversed the decree of the lower Court, taking the ground that as the divorce is valid by the laws of Indiana and has never been ques tioned there under the Constitution ot the United states, it must prevail in every other part of the country. Justice Swayne also asserts that, so far from being bound by the domicile of her husband, a married woman may acquire a residence independent of the husband whenever such a residence is neces sary to the protection of her rights by liti gation. A Handsome Beqckht. Even a miser may do a good thing when death takes him by the tb i oat, if at no other time. George Fox, a miser, who died recently in Third Avenue, New York, has willed his property valued at $490,000 to the United States to be applied to the payment of the national debt. Three nieces and nephews, now liv ing in a tenement house in Brooklyn, are cob testing the will. Abuses increase in magnitude the longer thoy exist. Forty-five years ago a paper con Ujning garden seeds, with the frank of a New Hampshire member of Congress on the wrapper, became broken in the mail, and reached the Concord Postoffic in thatplight It was considered such a wrong that the papers cried out against it, and the offender failed of reelection.

A porker weighing one thousand pounds when dressed, was slaughtered at Willianisport not long since., A farmer in Indiana county, while threshing one day lately, killed one hundred and twenty fire rat in his barn. ' A girl in Wisconsin swallowed forty percusiion caps. Her mother refrained from spanking her for fear of an explosion. California regard it as a bad sign for one to die with bis boots on. They are not so particular when it comes to sleeping. Wine is peddled on tbe Missouri railroad at thirty cents a bottle twenty-fire cents for -the bottle and five cents for the wine. Bears have been killed in seventy towns and plantations in Maine the past year. The boun ties will amount to about fifteen hundred dollars. The Kansas Pao:fic Railroad makes baggage masters personally responsible fcr smuhes. Qood other roads should follow their example. Hanging was ''played ' out rather too effustire ly in Baltimore the other day. A little colored boy was hanged in play by two comrades until be waa dead. A dead ragpicker in New Tork waa found lying on a pile of rags in bis chanty the other day, with a bank book showing $700 to his credit, in his pocket. Judge Knight, of the Circuit Court, decided, in a ease at St. Louis, that debts contracted by a wife must be collected from her huaband, and nut from her separate estate. A Chinese thus describes a trial in the English law courts: "One man is quite silent, another talks all the time, and twelve wise men condemn the man who has net said a word." Since the passage of the Fifteenth amendment. Sambo no longer asks plaintively, "Am I not a man and brother?" but sings gaily, ''Shoo fly, don't brother me, Mr. Democrat."

George Dixon, of Michigan, who caused the death of his little son by ill treatmeLt, baa been sent to prison for fifteen years. He threw his little boy down and stamped upon bis breast. A se'ect eoteri of ladies recently held a meet ing to gossip and drink tea. Some unannointed rillian sweetened their tea with Epsom salts which led to many wry faces and other unpleasant re sults, A curious fact in connection with to criminal statistics of New York is tbat men are most apt tj commit offences against the law between the ages of twenty and thirty, and women from thirty to forty. The Mormans have commenced their labors in Chicago where they expect to reap an abundant harvest. It is probable that they know whereof they hope. Chicago is more liKe Salt Lake ban any other single community in tbe country. Messrs. Fik & Hatch have introduced upon the market the Loan of the Chesapeake andOhio Kailroad Company, which has been waited for with considerable interest, as one of the most important financial undertak ings connected with the current new rail road enterprises. . The object of the road, in opening a new route from the West to the Atlatitic which promises to coine in formidable competition with the great trunk roads of the. Atlantic coast causes this Loan to rank foremost among the many now before the public. The scheme is backed by the most prominent and successful rail road capitalists in the country, and the ne gotiation of the loan is undertaken by bank ers who have marketed the largest railway loans of late years including the Centra Pacific atH the Western PaciSc and whose reputation for caution, honor, and conscien tious probity is such as to conynand confi dence in any securities they may offer. The intrinsic merit of the iJonds may be ascer tained from a prospectus in another column. They are issued in denominations of $100, $500. and $1,000, and are either coupon or registered, making a peculiarly popular loan. The Bonds run 30 years, and are payable, principal and interest, in gold, in the city of New York. They constitute a First Mortgage Lien on the entire property and franchises of the Company, and have the additional protection of a Sinking Fund of $100,000, per annum. Of the entire loan of $15,000,000, only $13,000,000 is to be is sued, the balance of $2,000,000 being held in trust. The Bonds arc offered at 90 and accrued interest. Mn Tti-wia 1,a Amnriran citizen of African descent who succeeds Jefferson Davis as United States Senator from BIis- sissippi, was on Friday last admitted to his seat. Mr.Vickersled off the Democracy in their pre-Adamite objections, which lose their weight considerably in view of the fact, as avouched by Senator Sherman, that twen ty years ago Mr. Revels voted in Ohio un der the provisions of the visible admixture decision. This decision, which was rendered by a Democratic court, and afterwards con firmed by statute, finds any man a white man who has but one-eight or less of black blood in his veins.
