Proceedings of the Republican Con ference for the 2Glh Pennsylvania Congressional District, held al Mercer, Pa., July fi and 7, with a statement of the causes which led to its organization. The Congressional District is com posed of three counties, Mercer, Butler and Crawford. In Mercer, S. H. Mil ler, Esq., was nominated. In Butler there were two candidates, Mr. J. D. McJunkin and Mr. Thomas Robinson. McJunkin was nominated by a majori ty of 107 votes. In the Convention called to count the vote and declare the nominee, fraud was alleged in some of the McJunkin districts, and a commit tee composed of two Robinson and one McJunkin delegate, was appointed to investigate. They unanimously report ed in favor of the vote as cast. The report of the Committee was adopted by the Convention by a large majority, and the candidates nominated as shown by the face of the returns were declared the nominees of the party. This dis posed of the contest in Butler county. In Crawford county, the candidates were Hon. S. B. Pick and Dr. W. B. Roberts. Upon the face of the returns Dr. W. B. Roberts was nominated by a majority of 113 votes. Under the rules of Crawford county, the Return Judges shall be competent to reject, by a majority vote, the return of any dis trict where there is evidence of fraud. The County Convention which met was composed of sixty return judges, thirty-one of whom would be a majority of the whole number. On a motion to throw out certain Roberts districts, a vote was taken, the Dick men claiming thirty in favor of the motion, the Rob erts "men admitting twenty-nine in its favor, but neither claiming thirty-one, a majority of the whole vote. The Convention divided, both having or ganizations, thirty-one declaring Rob erts the nominee and the others declar ing Dick the nominee. On the 2Gth day of June Mr. Miller and Mr. McJunkin agreed upon Mercer as the place, and July fi at 7 P. M., as the time for holding the conference. The contest in Crawford county was admitted and it was understood that the candidates from Crawford county should be ecpially treated with and that notice should be given to both of the time and place of holding the Confer ence. In accordance with this under standing, Messrs. Miller and McJunkin wrote duplicate letters to Dick and Roberts, of which the following aTe co pies : MKRCF.R, PA., June 29tli, 1880. lion. W. B. Jtubfiin:— DEAK Silt:— I have received a letter from Hon. J. D. McJunkin, of Butler countv, sug gesting Mercer as the place for holding the Re publican Conference and requesting me to fix a time, intimating that July Bth would be con venient. After he wrote I had an interview with him, and accepting his suggestion, I have agreed upon Mercer as the place and fixed up on July ii, 1880, at 7P. M., as the time. I trust the place and time will meet your approval. Having heard there was a contest in Crawford county, but knowing nothing of the history and facts thereof. — 1 have mailed a duplicate of this letter to Hon. S. B. Dick, of Meadville. In pursuing this course I do not wish to be under stood as in any way interfering in your local politics, and have done so solely that my action may not be misconstrued. I remain, very truly yours, S. H. MILLER. BUTLER, PA., June 28, 1880. Him. ll'. li. Roberts:— DEAR SIR :—On last Saturday, S. 11. Miller, Esq., nominee for Congress from Mercer coun ty, was in Butler, and we agreed upon Mercer as the place and July fith at 7*l*. M., the time for the Conference in ibis District; also that we would notify both Col. S. B. Dick and yourself of the fact, these notices not to l>e considered as enhancing the claims of either contestant. Yours in haste, but respectfully, J. D. MCJUNKIN. In pursuance of the above all the four parties met in Mercer at the time. Mr. McJunkin's Conferees, at 7 P. M., held an informal meeting with Mr. Mil ler's Conferees. The question discussed was the action to be taken with regard to Crawford county, the Mercer Con ferees insisting that Dick should be ad mitted as entitled prima facie to his seat; the Butler Conferees contending that Dick and Roberts should be treat ed alike, and neither admitted until Mercer and Butler Conferees should organize and pass upon the credentials from Crawford county", that by admit ting Dick in the first instance he would have an unfair advantage, for if a mo tion were made to substitute the Rob erts Conferees, "pon proof that Roberts was the nominee from Crawford couu ty, and the Butler and Mercer Confer ees were to divide, Mr. Dick would re tain his seat. No understanding was arrived at, and Mr. Miller's Conferees withdrew for consultation. After wait ing one or two hours, the following notice was prepared and served on Mr. Miller: MERCER, PA., July 6tli, 1880. 5. IT. Miller, F*<j. SIR : —According to agreement made at But ler, 2t;th June last, between Mr. J. D. McJun kin and yourself, the candidates of your respec tive counties for a Congressional nomination in the 2tlth Pennsylvania District, fixing the time of the Conference on the Cth of July following and the place at Mercer, and that notice of the time and place should be given Hon. S. B. Dick and Hon. \V. B. Roberts, contesting can didates for the nomination from Crawford coun tv, we as the Conferees of J. D. McJunkin, Esq., have met at the time and place pointed out in the agreement, and are now present in room No. 11, at the Whistler House, Mercer, and are ready to meet you according to the let ter and spirit of your agreement, that a Confer ence may l>e organized and we may proceed to determine the rights of the Crawford county candidates to a voice iu the Conference and the further business of the ineettng.

On motion, adjourned sine die. J. A. STONE, Secretary. HANCOCK'S RECORD. We have watched our Democratic exchanges and carefully searched for the principles that General Hancock carries in his saddle valise. The re sult of our search can be summoned up as follows: On the subject of the currency, he is a magnificent looking fellow. On the subject of the tariff he is a splendid soldier. On the subject of free trade he wears a brilliant uniform. On the subject of river and harbor improvements, he makes a grand ap pearance. on horseback. On State rights he appears well in his epaulets and brass buttons. Ou civil service reform he has a fine military bearing. On the so-called reform in the admin istration of the government he is a modern Murat. On the Indian question, he is the finest-looking Indian fighter the coun try ever produced, notwithstanding that for every Indian he killed it cost the government $4,500,000. On the subject of hanging Mrs. Sur ratt he hung Ler in a soldier-like man ner, but he would rather nothing be said about it. On the Southern question he behav ed like a gallant soldier, and made him self popular with every Ku-Klux, White-liner, bulldozer and ballot-box Btuffcr. Ou the subject of our foreign rela tions he wears a splendid mustache. On the school question he is is hand some looking man. On all other questions of public poli cy he has a martial bearing. In some respects he resembles Jeff Davis, the only difference being that he wears a corset, while Jeff wore a petticoat. _ —The Butler coal company made an unsuccessful effort to purchase large amounts of carloads at Carbondale last week owing to defective titles. THE MEN IN THE GALLERY. It will lie remembered that, in his speech nominating Sherman at the Convention, General Garfield, after delivering an appropriate eulogy upon that candidate, said, "Who do you want ?" Whereupon a voice in the gallery should "Garfield." That unknown man called upon the General on Tuesday afternoon, just as the future President was washing his hands to prepare for a general shake. He was a one armed soldier, and rather seedy in his make up. Said he, "Gen. Garfield, I come to offer my congratulations." "Thanks, thanks," said the General, "let nie see, weren't you in the Forty second Ohio—?" "Xo, General, that's not it. Didn't you hear that voice in the gallery when you said, "Who do you want ?" I'm the fellow that said it. I was for you first, last, and all the time." "You are a prophetic soul," said the General, "and if I come to the White House depend upon it I shan't forget you." And the one armed men left his name on a card and went away hap py. In a few minutes Garfield was sur rounded by his friends, and his right hand was going like a pump handle, when a burley Teuton pressed forward and accosted him: "Guten abend, General, I dinks I have some glaims on you anyhow. "I am at your service, my good fel low," said the General; "let me hear from you." "Did you here dot man shoud oud in de gallery 'Garfield' when you say 'Was haben sie ?" "Ah, yes, I remember it well. Do you mean to tell me—" "Yas, General, I vas dot man, identical zame." "My friend, I shall never forget you as long as I live. Let me hear from yot any time." And the man went away happy. Passing through the rotunda on his way to the carriage, the General felt a thundering slap on his back, midway between his shoulder and hips accom panied with a familiar "Hillo, old Gar." Turning round he saw before him a very little man, with a very tall hat, and a very thick stick in his fist. "Don't remember me, eh ? I'm called the boss interviewer of Chicago. I interviewed old Conk, and you too, and " "Ah, yes. Well, good day, good day." "Hold on, old fellow," said the little chap; "I want to have just a word with you on my own hook. Didn't you here that fellow up in the gallery when you made your Sherman speech shout 'Garfield ?'" "I did; I did. Do you mean to say " "Guess I fixed you that time, old man. I knew it was bound to go that way. Now, I consider I am the man who saved the Republican party." "MY dear, good little fellow," said Garfield, "you deserve the thanks of the nation. I shall give you a new club. Come down and see me in Ohio and I'll tell you all about the next Cabinet Perhaps you'll be in it." And the little niau went away happy. Just as the General was boarding the train, a bottle-noised politician from the Seventh ward plucked him by the coat tail and shrieked, "Gen eral, General, one word—only one word." "What is it, my man?" "Do you remember when you made your speech in the convention nominat ing Sherman that a man up in the gal lery shouted 'Garfield?'" The General is not a profane man. He was once a minister of the Gospel, but he was also at one time of his life a canal boatman. Early habits of thought and expression are never completed, and the future occupant of the White House startled some of his friends in the car as he threw himself into a seat and exclaimed: "D— that man in the gallery." WINKING PROTOGRAPHS. Winking photographs are said to be produced in the following manner : One negative is taken with the sitter's eves open ; another without change of position, with the eyes shut. The two negati.\es are printed on opposite sides of the paper, "registering', ex actly. Held liefore a flickering lamp, or other variable source of light, the combined pnotographs show rapid al ternations of closed and open eyes, the effect ln-ing that of rapid winging. A CURIO US PHENO ME NON. The Plandealer, of East Kent, Ontario, states that a curious and in explicable phenomenon was witnessed recently by Mr. David Muckle and Mr. W. It. McKay, two citizens of that town The gentlemen were in a field on a farm of the former, when they heard a sudden loud report, like that of a cannon. They turned just in time to see a cloud of stones flying up ward from a spot in the field. Sur prised beyond measure they examined the spot, which was circular and about 1(» feet across, but there was no sign of an eruption nor anything to indicate the fall of a heavy body there. The ground was simply swept clean. Thev are quite certain that it was not caused by a meteorite, an eiuption of the earth, or a whirlwind. Harvest hands get two dollars per day in the eastern counties. A singular accident occurred at Irwin Station, recently. A miner was walking along the railroad track when a passing train exploded a rail cap. A piece of the cap struck the man in the throat, cutting it so that for two days he was unable to speak. He is slowly recovering. A beefsteak chopped up fine and baked with flour and veast in the form of a "meat-bread" loaf is the latest i dietetic sensation. It is asserted that : meat thus treated entirely disappears ( during the process of purification, the nutritive principles Incoming incor porated with the bread. ADT]:RTIBIN» KATES.

TIK* Albany Journal summarizes it in brief: At fourteen, lie was at work at a carpenter's bench. At sixteen, he was a boatman on the Ohio Canal. At eighteen, he was studying in the Chester (0.) Seminary. At twenty-one, he was .teaching in one of Ohio's common schools, push ing forward with his own studies at the same time. At twenty-three, he entered Wil liams College. At twenty-six, he graduated from Williams with the highest honors of his class. At twenty-seven, he was a tutor at Hiram College, Ohio. At twenty-eight, he was Principal of Hiram College. At twenty-nine, he was a member of the Ohio Senate—the youngest mem ber of that body. At thirty, he was Colonel of the Forty-second Ohio Regiment. At thirty-one, he was placed in com mand of a brigade, routed the Rebels under Humphrey Marshall, helped Gen. Buell in his fight at Pittsburgh Landing, played a prominent part in the siege of Corinth and in the import ant movements along the Memphis k Charleston Railroad At thirty-two, he was appointed Chief of Staff of the Army of the Cum berland, participated in the campaigns in Middle Tennessee and in the nota ble battle of Chickamauga, and was promoted to the rank of Major-Gen eral. At thirty-three, he was in Congress, the successor of Joshua R. Giddings. At forty-eight, having been contin uously in Congress since he was thir ty-three, he was elected to the United States Senate. At forty-eight, he was nominated for the Presidency of the United States. Such are the salient points in the history of the man whom the Repub licans have selected as their standard bearer in the present campaign. The simple, unadorned statement of his re cord constitutes his strongest eulogy— goes the furthest in commending him to the confidence of his countrymen. There is no anti-climax in his career. It proceeds from the humblest and most propitious beginning step by step onward and upward by arduous but honorable paths. He is essentially a product of our institutions, a man sprung from the people, the incarna tion of American pluck, perseverance, self-reliance and intelligence. He is in the best sense of the word a self-made man. It bae been said that "most self made men worship their creators." But Garfield has no such conceit. The trials of his early days did not daunt him, nor have the triumphs of his man hood turned his head. He is to-day what he has always been, modest, un assuming, frank and unaffected; a man cf great and varied resources, of through training and large experi ence, full of sympathy for the masses whose toils he has shared, full of love for the country which he periled his life to help save and for whose welfare he has steadily labored ev6r since his entrance in to Congress. The Democratic party can place no man in nomination who can make any headway against the carpenter, canaler, teacher, soldier, statesman, James A. Garfield. DOMESTIC WINES AND COR DIALS. BLACKBERRY WlNE. —Mash the ber ries and pour 1 quart of boiling water to each gallon ; let the mixture stand 24 hours, stirring occasionally ; then strain and measure into a keg, adding 2 pounds of sugar to each gallon.

It is no unusual thing tor bark peel ers in Glearfield county to find in the deep recesses of the forest the bones of human skeletons. That part of tie State was once a very wicked locality. A Dutchman was relating his mar vellous escape from drowning when thirteen of his companions were lost by the upsetting of a boat, and he alone was saved. 'And how did von escape their fate,' one of his hearers.• 'I tid not co in te tain pote!' was Alio Dutchman's placid answer.
