GENERAL MAH0NE AGAIN HE IS8UE3 THAT GREAT ADDRESS. Reviewing tho Causes or the Receal Dcmocratlo Victory In From a KcKdJusler Ntntid yolat Interratlnc. PETEitsnuno, Vo.,-Nov. 19. Tho . address of Senator Mahone to tho Rendjuster party, on tho results of tho recent oleotloii in this State, was mado public lost night. Tho documcut contains fully flvo thousand words, aud is evidently intended for tho peoplo of tho United States, as well aa to the party to whom it is addressed. Tho salient points aro as follows: 'To tho IUadjustor Party of Virginia: "When a dominant party, organized around great and enduring principles, and composed of a decided majority of voters In a Stato, la suddenly overwhelmed and mado to appear a minority, it is of tho highest cousequenco that overy member of tho party should inform himself whothor that result has boon brought about by a freo and honest oxprossiou of tho popular will; and if so, which of its avowed principles has bocomo obnoxious to tho majority, or, if all aro still adhcrod to, which of thorn has boon betrayed by thoso with tho groat duty of applying and enforcing them in tho government of mo oiato." "When tho Bourbon faction assembled in Lynchburg in July last to formulate a platform, a largo oloment of it membership avowedly and oponly favored tho adoption of tho color lino. Bourbon Journals proclaimed that tho truo issue of th canvass was tho race issuo, and that the contest should bo forced Into a struggle botwoed tho whites and tho blacks. That such a plank would bo incorporated Into tho platform adopted Boomed highly until tho final action taken dovolopod tho fact that, for roa&ous best known to thomselvos, tho Bourbons had determined not to muko written proclamation of their purposo to draw tho color lino. Evon tho most moderate Bourbon did not pretend that this failure to draw the color Hue in tho platform sprung from lack of purposo so to do, but it was admitted on all hands that it had not beon formally adopted from motivos of policy. Tho temporary chairman of the Convention addressed himself to "tho white peoplo of Virginia." The progress of the canvass doveloped an organlzod system of duplicity practiced by our opponents, whereby, in black districts, thoy appealed to tho blacks for support ou tho ground that our party gave thorn no recognition and used them as moro tools aud catspuws, whllo at sarao timo, in white districts their appeals wero mode to every projudieo of raco to savo tho whites from an alleged purposo, on our part, to elevate tho blacks above thorn. Sonsatlonal circulars from Danville, Cumberland aud filled with false statements of wrongs and outrages committed by blacks; cartoons depicting negroes punishing white children: pictures of negro men with a white child on cno knoo and a black child on tho other, infamous perjuries as to tho utterances of our public speakers nnd lies, groat and small, calculated to influence raco prejudice, were spread broadcast through tho white districts of tho State, backed by corruption money without stint, whilo thoy were studiously suppressed in tho black districts and thoir absence supplied by a doublo fund of monoy to "buy or bully" tho blacks. Tho massacre in Danville is dignified by Bourbonism with the namo of riot. Tho facts, as gathered from all sources, aro that upon Saturday ovenlng proceeding tho election, just after thoDanvOlo negroes had roeeived their woekly pay aud wero buying their Sunduy supplies in a crowded market placo, a white man had an altercation with a negro and wlilpjod him. Tho fight was ended and no other came to tho roscuo of tho punished man, but tho progrnmmo was not interrupted by this circumstance. An armed gathorlng of tho "best icoile" and of tho "best aud bravest" was conveniently near, and in a moment a murderous throng pourod out of tho building whoro thoy wore assembled, opening a deadly flro upon tho unarmed, defenseless and flylug negroes, llow many wero killed no ono knows, and no one will probably learn the truth-, for tho condition of things still in Danville is such that tho truth cannot be learned. That thoy were shot in tho backs like dogs whilo running away; that no pistol shot was fired by a black man ; that no white man was injured, savo by his own friends; that for days tho poor vio'.ims wero found dead in alloys, In warehouses, and under houses, llko poisoned rats that had crawled away to die; that tho negroes fled to the woods, to tho Stato of North Carolina, to the four winds of heaven; these aro a few of tho facta of this bloody, wholcsalo murder, which was telegraphod far and near by Bourbons as an insolent uprising of tho blacks against tho whites. Simultaneously with these occurrences tho crack of 'tho Bourbon weapon engaged in political murdor resounded. Tho , effects! wore all that the bulldozers could have hoped for. In tho city of Danville, whoro Cameron received, iu 1631, votes numbering 789, and Wise, in 1882, received S41 votes and whero 1,379 Iteadjuster votes wero enrollod, but twenty-six votes wero cast for tho Coalition candidate, whose life was threatened and whose collln, it is said, had been actually mado and paid for by the party of honor and Influence. j repeat, thoroforo that the ttrugglo against Bourbonism must bo renewed forthwith and that it is a struggle to tho death, and, as your Chairman, 1 call upoii every loyal Roadjuster to rally to tho standard and reform to fight anow tho battle against their old Bourbon foe in the national campaign of 1834, bearing in mind tho old watch-word of a 'freo ballot and a fair count. Wo havo a right to demand and oxpoct support from tho Stato, and, if need bo, from the Federal Government, In of tho rights of man, guaranteed by both Qovernufents, and put at stake to pro-euro tho ascendancy of an unscrupulous party that sticks at nothing to acqulro power.

"WrLKBsnAnnK, Pa., Nov. 19. An unprovoked and singularly atioclous murder wai committed last night at Mill Hollow, a small villago a fow milos from hero. Dun Ing tho OTenlng tnrco or four roughs en tercd a saloon, and, after drinking, began a disturbance. A livoly row ensued,. It which beer glasses and bottles were used and several pistol shots fired though no on was seriously hurt. Tho roughs wero finally ejected and congregated on a bridgi which spans a littlo creek close by the saloon. Whilo they wore standing ther John Clair, Superintendent of the Weddol Mines, of Mill Hollow, passed by. Ha it an old gentloman, woli, known throughout the wholo country, and well respected. At ho pawed the crowd of roughs thoy assailed him with a storm of jeers and abuso, 'and one of the gang, named Dennis Keller, shouted to him to go faster or ho would shoot. Clair, not thinking that tho wretch would carry' out hit threat, ropliod good kumorodly: "Fire away, Dennis." The words were scarcoly out of his mouth when Keller drew his pistol and flrod four shots In rapid succession at tho defonsoless old man. Every ,sh6l told. Ono wounded him in tho forehead, another In tho abdomen, another In the arm. Ono shattered Ids thigh. Clair was brought to tho hospital In this city, where he died last ovenlng, Keller was arrested and lodged in jail. Tho excitement in Mill Hollow last nltrht was Intense, nnd had Kellor fallen into tho hands of tho miners ho would probably havo bteii lynched, as threats wore oponly mado. PRINTERS' STRIKE txtk Tho American Press AMorlatloa R fuses to b "I.ootetl." Cincinnati, Nov. 19. A committeofrom tho typographical union ordered a strike In tho American Press Association office; this city, this afternoon, on tho ground that the typo should bo measured minion, although tho tyio med is brevier and. more thaii up to the regulation standard of "fatness." It is claimed that tho typo should bo measured minion, because its face is smaller than regular brovior. Tho Association has always paid the highest prices in tho city, having voluntarily raised tho prlco for composition to 42c. per thousand several months ago, which is two conts moro than is paid anywhere west of Now.YorkJ nThe unreasonable demand was promptly refused, and several of the men were Indignant that the union should order a striko on such grounds. The alleged cause Is probably but a subterfuge, whilo tho real objoct is an effort to cripplo tho numerous interior, daily newspapers depending on the Association for their telegraphlo news which papers aro materially affecting the circulation and profits of the Cincinnati dailies. Tho Association will not bo crippled but a few days at tho most. t , SpreUI Weather Ilnlletln. Wasiunoton, Nor. 10.

"I stejjmd teeids, when, to my astonish mmt, a vision, not altogether of loveliness, but one of femininity burnt upon mo. Tho placo was notjarge but thore wore soino two dozen ladlrs of all agvo and positions In llfo present, sitting at tables nnd guarded by mugs of foaming lagor beer, which they wro busily cugogod in drinking. Ojou my entrance tho hum of conversation hod ceased, and two dccen(pair of eyes, some bleared, I am sorry to say, were turned upon ma Finding that I was safe in the clutches of the waiter girl, they soon returned to their beer and cigarettes. One-half tho ladles were gently puffing away at cigarettes in n manner quite proper. Borne of them were expert enough to blow pretty lUtlerimrs'of smoko that sailed up into tbaair, and, watched by the fair maker, broko'and'then disappeared. At two of tlie tables tho smoke was so thick as to almost Lido the faces of tho smokers. I was greatly amused in watching ono of tho ladles taking her first lesson in smoking. She put the cigarette daintily botwecn her red lips and touched a tuatch to it as if the was afraid It would explodo liko a "pulled" away.. at , it with all her strength. But she was inexpertanord and "pulled" too hard, for tho smoko wont down into her lungs, choking bar and causing considerable commotion for the time being. Such chattering and burstsot laughter! It was talk, talk, talk, singularly and collectively, with no Intermission for nut And tho subjects. They reached from oiid fashion to art and Each related her experiences while shopping that day, and told of tho groat bargains she slight havo obtained "if she only had tho monoy." Tho latest gossip was rolailod In too most interesting manner, with spicy personal comments. All present seemed to bo convivial spirits. I noticed the manner in which thoy disposed of their beer. Thsydidnot pour it down thoir throats man fathkm, but sipped it as ono would wine. Another thing I noticed was that each paid for her own refreihincat, and that "treating" ovideatly was not' popular with them. Nono soemod ill at aro, and, on tho contrary, appeared ta to quite nt homo. Two glasses was about tho limit of Individual Indulgence, although I saw ono stout matron dispose of flvo beers In oompiMstivcly quick succession. There was no boLrtcrousnesa, rough expressions or actions, and, to tell tho truth, they were as well behaved as if they wore attaiUaa tea party. The majority of them wore of (bo better class, and I saw but cxm who appeared "off color." Americans predominated. All wore well dreesed, many of them wearing costly silks and valuablo jowolry. Sorno were undoubtedly mothers, others daughters of well-to-do peoplo. They came and wont, bidding goodby to frionds, and promising to see them at some later day In the tamo place. They generally came In in pairs, and seating themsolves at a table, would heave a sigh of thankfulness for at last .being able to sit down and rest, and woukl then order a "Boston" or an "after tea." An "after tea" I found to be a small glace of beer, while a "Boston" was a little larger. Occasionally a dame of mature years would call for 1a. little claret or sherry, nnd I am sorry to cay that ono of tho women ordered a gin flu. This ono, however, was the girl who ws a Uttle "off color." Lunch was frequently ordered with tho beer. Men with female companions also dropped iu, and occasionally a lono representative of tho sterner ix made his appearance, and was cared for ftlWrtlw same iSl&naerOjT had boon. There Is one Chlng t can say truthfully, in addttoat to whaf I havo already related, and that is that "the beer was of the best quality. JPsrhaps this u one reason that the place is so popular with the women. But Is the idoa likely , to grow; I think it Is. In my opinion the ' tiinalwtll como before long when bar-rooms for the exclusive patronage of women will bo quite common. 1 am led to believe this from what I hare seen and from statements recently made by a promlnont physician of this city. This gentleman has a largo practice, among tbo upper' classes, and it was vrith every appearance of sincerity that be told me a' short time ago that drinking among women was alarmingly upon the increase. He has several wealthy patients whom he treats for dipsomania, or in othr wordj, for tippling. TERRIBLE EXPERIEN CE. tost iu ,thO Maine Forests, During the!Ilpcnt flale. CONConn, N. H., Nor. 19.

He was on a' hunting expedition with Smith West and two companions, aud last Monday was encamped at the headwaters -of (Jus Pleasant RIvpr, ten miles 'south Of tlio Moosohend Lake.

Thoy had literally to chop their way out, and on tho second day were met by a gang of men who had been started In after them, but had only cut a path of flvo miles In that time. The scene beggared description. Men whose fortunes wore in tho forests were ruined in a few hours. Ono man had four yoke of oxen and fire pairs of horses at a camp In tho dovastod region, all of which had to bo killed as thoy could not be brought out, nor could food be got to them, Tho party had an experlonco which mpney could not hire them to go through again.
