Sfc&M* S^KSSroiu.,} :Enno “ WmsISSIEB, MU. A Letter Proa Gov. Haadrioks. Discrediting the telegram* from Wash ington to relation to Out. Hendricks, of Indiana, which attributed to him a pur pose to found a new port; on the ruins of Democracy and Liberalism, wc address o him a brief letter on the subject, en closing the telegrams, and received from him tbc following letter in reply; Itiuiaturous, April 3, 1873. Musas. Vaxonroani Data Staa—Your Savor of the 2fith ult. is received, and in reply I have to say, that my visit to Washington City had nothing whatever to do with political matters ; and whilst there I had leas conversation in relation to ponies and pany organizations, than at any former visit to that city, and I was quite surprised : when I learned that newspaper correspond ent* attributed to me any political purpose. A cause in the Supreme Court ana some business in the Departments occupied nearly all my time, and my conversations with friends and acquaintances upon public and political matters were casual, and without arrange ment, and, I might say, without design. I have expressed the hope, which 1 earnest ly entertain, that all who sincerely deaire a thorough reform in the public service, shall so act together as to restore integrity aiid econo my in that service, and place public authority once more upon a proper constitutional basis. How this may be t>c st accomplished, wheth er through an existing organization, or by u movement introducing new elements, should be carefully considered; and the action of the democratic, liberal and reform elements in the States will probably suggest the best rral action. I believe a large majoritj of people desire a change in administration, and the practical question is how they shall come together witn a view to that end. Very truly yours, T. A. Hendricks. The Harrisburg Patriot very pertinently remarks upon this Washington rumor: “The quid Dimes at Washington having, started the story that Governor Hendricks of Indiana and other leading Democrats recently held a conference in that city to consider whether or not the time bad arrived for the disbandment of the Democratic party and the organization of the elements opposed to the parly at present dominant, under a new name and on a new platform of principles, the Republican newspapers take it tor granted that this rumored change of base on the part of their political adversaries is certain to take place. Let them dismiss their baseless hopes. There was no such conference. There is no serious intention among the public men of the Democratic party to gratify their opponents by adopting the views erroneously attributed to Governor Hendricks. There is, of course, a desire, an earnest and sincere wish, shared alike by all honest opponents of the present administration, for a harmonous anion of the constituents of the opposition to Grantism. Governor Hendricks, while at the national capital the other day, in conversation with prominent members of the Democratic and liberal parties, gave expression to this general desire. That was the sum and substance of what he said. The ingenuity of the Washing ton correspondents supplied the rest. The idea that the mere change of name should suggest itself to the philosophic mind of Governor Hendricks, as a sure means of party success, is preposterous. Names of parties have had the least possible effect in influencing the result of elections during the last decade. The selfishness of men, the cupidity and corruptibility of politicians, the dishonest use and desperate abuse of the powers of government by an administration bent upon retaining office, the indifference of the people to issues practically settled and to a canvass narrowed down to personal charges made on the one side and dented on the other, (the statements of neither credited by (he public,) these are the reasons that account for the re-election of Grant. The Democratic name had nothing on earth to do with it.” The Tide on the Torn. Under this heading the N. Y. Herald makes some appropriate comments upon the result of the recent election in Con necticut. It says, editorially: “Mr. Haven, the Republican candidate for Governor, represented the party ring of the State, and stood before the people as the champion of this ring, and of all the ruling rings of his party at Washington and else where, and of their acts and measures, and of their plans and policy, right or wrong. Hence his inglorious defeat. Local grievances and prrinaices will not account for it. The Con necticut people have struck, through him, at those above him and beyond him, and this • defeat of Haven is a warning and a rebuke to the Republican party of the Stale and the na tion. In the result* of other recent elections, in St. Louis, Cincinnati, Cleveland and else where, there are evidences or indications not only of general apathy in the Republican camp, hut of general insubordination. In the State elections of September, October and November next, from present appearances, this Republican insubordination against party rings and party candidates will be very em phatically made manifest. The issues between the opposition and the dominant party, grow ing out of the shortcomings and the corrupt doings of the late Congress have hardly yet taken a definite shape ; out in the interval to the foil elections the Republican budget of blunders at Washington and that at Albany will be fully exposed.” Delaware.—A correspondent of the Advocate, writing from Delaware City, says:—The last rail on our railroad, the Delaware aud Pennsylvania, was laid on Saturday last, but some time will be re quired yet to ballast it. A meeting of the Directors will be held here about the last of the month, when the Pennsylvania Central will probably take the road in charge and operate it. Shad are scarce in the Delaware river. Herring are plenty ; 20,000 were caught in the locks of the Canal on the 7th inst. Shad will probably be more abundant this week. A goodly number have been caught st Port Penn, s few miles below here. Departed This Transitory Life. —This neat obituary notice appears in the Louisville Cowier-Journal: “Died in Washington recently, a little or phan boy named Civil Service Reform, who was apprenticed to the President last fall, just before the election. The President unfortu nately pul him to bed the other night, to sleep between Casey and Fred Grant, who overlaid him, and the miserable little wretch was smothered to death. Editor of Harper's Weekly and other friends of the deceased will attend the funeral without farther notice. Ser vices by the Rev. Dr. Newman, Inspector of Consulates.” The New York World proposes a change in tbc mode of electing the President of the United States by dropping the cum brous electoral system and adopting the direct vote of the people. This mode of election is objected to in some quarters, as tending to conaolidatton. The World, in | behalf of Stata Rights, proposes the fob ' lowing amendments to the Constitution ; , Jftnt. An explicit prohibition of the Fed eral judiciary from taking cogniaance of any matter appertaining to the ragnlarity of a State election or the validity of s State gov- a eminent. i .Second, A provision making the States the sole and exclusive judges of the election of z their Senators and Representatives in Con- „ gross, leaving to the two houses only the pow | , er of expulsion by s two-thirds vote. ' Third. Prohibiting Congress from passing a any law relating to the internal affairs of a ~ State, or from interfering to suppress domes- 11 tic violence without n certificate from tu- ■ jority of the judges of the highest State court ~ (in addition to tie application of the Govern- ‘ or or Legislature) Mating that the violence is d formidable, and not merely appre- dl President ({rant is going to Norfolk, Va., aud then ns far West as St. JLonia, m Mo,, and will start, kis said, next week T> In these days of political degeneracy the position of the private cUitcn is the ; post of honor. The desire for office ap- , pears to be wide-spread, pervading all clas ses of society. Many an un, sitting moth has been lured by the light of public office to singe its wings and full grovelling to the earth in pain, disappointment and mortification. Many persona have ruined themselves in their efforts to get office, and many others, who have been success ful in obtaining it, have only had their ruin thereby the mure assured. Office seeking is the bane of the country. From the highest to the lowest place of profit or trust, every avenue leading to it is crowded with eager applicants. The tenure of of fice, in this country, is a frail one; the term brief ; and a few year* spent therein, gives a man a distaste for private enter prise or business, as well as measurably disqualifies him for the same. It is bet ter, therefore, if a man has a business which affords him a living profit, to let office alone. The private citilen is also the only truly independent man. The public officer is, to some extent, the public 1 servant, aud everyone who feels inclined to do so, thinks he has a perfect right to give him a kick. Keep out of office, there i fore, if you would spare yourself annoy -1 auce, and preserve your dignity and self . respect A few men, a very few, have profited, perhaps, by bolding office, bat we , doubt not that a larger number have lost j. by it and their unsuccessful efforts to ob , tain it. t These reflections have been suggested in ' view of the approaching election next fall. 1 when a clerk, register, sheriff, commis sioners, treasurer, and members uf the leg islature, will have to be chosen. If there r be any honor to the incumbents of these positions, it arises from the fact that they have been selected to fill them by their , fellow citixens on account of their sup ‘ posed fitness and qualifications. But, when . aspirants for public office thrust themselves ! forward, without being called on by the . people,—when they run to and fro over t the county and set their district managers . and wire-pullers to work to pack a convea . tiou to subserve their own purposes, with | out regard to the wishes of the people, it s is simply disgraceful, and such an one 1 ought to be unceremoniously set aside, 1 and made to feel the force of that iadigua -1 tion which his conduct merits. The pub lic offices were created for the public ben jj fit, and not for the benefit of individuals, i When the office seeks the man. and not d the man the office, then there Is honor in the public service; but when a man foists e himself upon his party or the public, there is no honor in it, and they who do so arc ,f generally the least qualified or the least jj" worthy. All the jealousies, bickerings e and heart-burnings, among partisans, arise 8 from this source. If, instead of engaging in these disgraceful scrambles for office, I they would quietly remain at home, and j content themselves with merely signifying s to their friends their willingness to accept ° position in case they should he called on, t there would be no ground for that strife : among members of the same party, which is sure to arise from a contrary course. The people ought to turn their backs upon j any and every man whom they find active ly electioneering for himself. That would put an effectual stop to it, and cure this growing evil, which calls loudly for reform and public condemnation. [ In what we have said above, we make . no personal allusions whatever. Our re ! marks arc general, and are meant to apply f to any and all persons who come within j their purview. Indeed, we do not know . that anyone comes within their purview, t at the present time. We hope not. Wc , think there is a general desire for, and a - determination to have, the utmost harmony | in the selection of candidates for the eu t suing campaign. If ail arc actuated by [ this spirit, all reasonable aspirations may 1 be gratified, and no ground of dissatisfiic ' tion will remain to mar our harmony or to . render the result doubtful. The Bel Air Aigit made ita appearance 1 in a.i enlarged form, last week. It is a f good county paper, and deserves the liber al support given to it by the citixens uf that county. We are sorry, however, to , see it, like several other Marylaed journals, in the hands of the Philistines, or Adver , tisiug Agents, whose nndermining policy , is working continual injury to the ratal . press, by crowding their columns with dis , tant advertisements at rates far below . those charged local advertisers, on which , beggarly sum they submit to a farther re , duction of 25 per cent commission to said Agents. If the publishers of country papers would refuse the use of their col umns to these Agents, city advertisers would pay established rates. As it is, they , get their advertisements published at less . than one-fourth the rates charged local advertisers. And here is the injury sus tained by the country press—they not only lose what is due them as a fair com pensation for the service rendered, but these advertisements generally possess but little interest for their readers, and crowd out reading matter, which, if inserted, would make the country papers more in teresting to their patrons, and consequent ly increase their circulation. A Trip to North Carolina.— Those who have neither time nor means to travel, \ and yet would like to have some insight of regions they have never seen, may sit quietly down in their own homes and read a very interesting description of the old North State, which will be found on the first page of this paper. It contains a number uf interesting facta in relation to the supply of tar, turpentine, rosin, and | other products of that portion of the South, which will be interesting to the general reader. DoomatlSSl Wc had occasion, last summer, to laugh at the silly ordinance of j Baltimore city, requiring dogs to be muz-1 tied during the dog-dagt, as if they were ; more dangerous stthat time than any ot her. : Our risibilities arc again excited at the announcement that Mr. Bcrgh proposes j that the dogs of New York shall be caught with scoop-nets, preparatory to smothering , them with carbonic acid, when the dog- \ dnjfi approach ! How wonderful the wis- I torn of shmo of our city Solons! j The Port Tobacco Tima presents the ' lame of Hon. Wm. M. Merrick, for the Financial The London Economist contain* the fol j ; lowing particular* of the financial con von | | don between France and Germany in j 1 regard to indemnity payments, which have j J an Interest on th'w ride of the sAllantic, as 1 ! the progress of these payments may powi ; I bly affect us in the future; On the 15th ultimo, France aud Germany concluded what will no doubt be the Huai con vention in connection with the indemnity pu\- meats. The exact text of the convention as to the dates of the remaining payments is as follows: “Article I—The sum of three mil liards having been already paid of the five millards of the war indemnity stipulated fur b Treaty of Peace of May 10, 1871, and only If of the last two milliards remaining to be paid, France engages to pty between this and the 10th of May, 1878, the 600 million francs (£20,000,000) remaining of the fourth milliard: and payable on the Ist of March, 1874, accor ding to article 1 of the convention uf Juno 20, 1872. The payments art? not to he in smaller sums than £4,000,000 eech, and notice is to be given to the German government at least a month before payment. The fifth milliard, which is payable according to the above con vention on March 1, 1875, will be paid by France in four instalments, each amounting to £10,000,000, on June 5, July 5, August 6, and September 6, 1878. On paying the Inst instalment France will also pay the interest due from March 2 f 1878.” The effect of the above convention is that France has £20.000,- 000 to pay before the middle of May, and each month after that it must pay £ 10,000,000 to Germany--in all £00,000,000 in little more , than five months. So rapid a payment quite justifies, we think, some of the alarm as to a possible monetary disturbance which seems to nave been excited on the Continent, especial- ! |y when it is remembered that since last sum- j mer France has paid to Germany £80,000,000 j * of principal and about £6.000,000 more for i interest, making in all a transfer of £126,000*, ! 000 within a twelvemonth, and that the en i cashment of all the bills used in the payment cannot yet have been completed by tne Ger man Government. It is, no doubt, true that experience has been acquired iu so arranging l the payments as to disturb the money market as little as possible, but the difficulty of any arrangements must be very great, and justifies . a continuance of some anxiety until a settle ment is finally made. The Advance in Gold. —The New 3 York Express says the Herald has an cla ■ borate leader on the causes of the present r advance in the gold premium, the substance r of which is that, after all, clique combina tions in Wall street have less to do with it than the natural laws of trade: that wo 1 are deeply in debt to foreign countries. 9 and gold is needed to adjust that indebted & ness; that the stock on hand is small, and r is daily growing less, while we are piling 1 up the importations ns if pay days were never to come. The article concludes with i * | apprehensions of another commercial and ■; financial crisis, hut the driter prudently t refrains from telling us the particular time e | for its commencement. ’ Connecticut Election. —The World . claims the result of the Connecticut elcc j tions as an out-and-out Democratic victo -1 ry, and hails the fact as a sure premoui j j tion of the advance of the party to national j power and prestige—adding, however: j But our path to victory will never lie in any j other direction than a sraight Democratic l* ! course, leaving honest Republicans to join us , . i when they can no longer stand their own par- i 1 . ty. We shall never sink into a mere balance j t| of power party. Our success will come every s where, as it has come in Connecticut, by re . ; cruiu, not by an alliance. The Christian e i Church might as well make an alliance with , I one sect of the Mahometans, instead of bap * j tizing them as converts. ' - , - * I “Oh ye Teaks!”—“Oh yk Tears!’* ’ I —Mr. E. Fulton, Surveyor of the port of * Baltimore, having been decapitated, the ’ American says Civil Sendee Reform, “is L ‘! down among the dead.” “We bid it adieu 1 j with only one single regret, nnd that is that it was ever adopted as a plank of the 1 platform of the Philadelphia Convention.' 1 Is the Democratic party dead, as the 9 Credit Mobilier parly press exultingly tells 1 us? Let the Connecticut election answer. Let Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, To ? ledo. Dayton, Dubuque, Keokuk, Baton - Rouge, Albany, and St. Louis answer. f * i Swartout added a new word to our vo r cabnlary, and “swartouling” became the , synonym of stealing.

Berger Family Swiss Bell Ringers.—Odd ' , Fellows' Hall, in this city, was well filled, on ( j Thursday evening lust, with a brilliant ami ( appreciative audience, the occasion being the . appearance, according to announcement, of the Berger Family. The performance opened by several pieces on the Swiss bells, which were creditably played; then came a violin solo, and the third piece was a solo by Miss l Nellie Knapp. Miss Knapp has n fine voice, and perfect control over it, but the ball was ‘ 100 small and not suited for vocal music, which greatly marred the effect. We expected, when we went to the hall, to 1 make mention of the best features of the en ' tertaiament, but each performer was so pro | ficient in his or her role, that it would seem partial to favorably mention one more than \ another. However, if there be one more than another deserving of special notice, it is Miss Anna, whose character songs and perform ances on the comet nnd violin were rare in deed, nnd well received by the audience, who j . attested their appreciation by repeated rounds j of applause. Sidney Franks, also, was n fa- 1 vorite the with audience, to which their fre quentencore*gave evidence. In his inimitable I comic specialties and character songs he drew i forth shouts of laughter and outbursts of ap i clause. Probably the best and most novel 1 feature of the entertainment was the cornet ; band, composed of three ladies and four gen- ( tlemcn, whose sweet music delighted the ears . I of all present. The ladies proved themselves j i as efficient as the gentlemen, and especially j (excited the admiration of the assembly. As bell ringers, the Berger Family are' scarcely equal to the Peak Family or the Al- i 1 leganians. but their entertainment, taken all together, was far superior. In fact, the con- I cert on Thursday evening surpassed anything | of the kind we ever heard, and those who failed to embrace the opportunity of hearing I this justly eeleprated concert company, missed . a rare musical treat. i * Frederick County Items.—From the Ex aminer, of Wednesday, we take the following: On the 31st of March, the steeple of the German Reformed Church nnd three minarets blew down in Kmmituburg, causing much I damage to Mr. Abraham Welly's two dwell . ings and Miss Martin's residence, caving i; [! the roof, and breaking the furniture. The . steeple had been in an unsafe condition for several days, nnd many persons were fearful to walk on that side of the street—persona . were moving in the house at the time of the fall—the large bell was uninjured; it is hoped that the congregation will pay the damages. The storm king has raged around this town at . a fearful rale during the past two weeks. l)nring the thunder storm which prevailed with great violence on lust Saturday night, j j Mr. Jacob Oilier, residing al Ml. Pleasant, | had the misfortune to lose two of his horses, ‘ which were struck by lightning, the one being ‘ j valued at S2OO and the other at SOO. The i horses were ip the stable, aud os there are no j marks of injury about the barn, the supposi- I tion is'that the lightning ran down the rod, ‘ | which is at the north end of the barn, and • 1 entered the stable along the girder. In nddi | ton to the two that were killed, another horse * ■ was severely hurt about the head, but this is ; accounted for on the theory that it was stun ned by the shock, and hurt itself in its strug ( gle to regain its feet. I Last Saturday night the barn of Mr. Jacob ; Delaplane residing near Broadrun School 1 House, in Woods boro' District, was struck by [ lightning, and entirely consumed, together 1 with ils contents consisting of provender, Ac. I here was in the stable a number of cows, i two of which were burned to death, and the ! third one very badlv injured. J. 8.

J\olf, who resides with his brother, Mr. I Daniel Wolfe, in Frederick county,about one j mile from Union Bridge, left the latter place j to walk to his home, lint had not passed out of the town before he was approached from I the rear, struck a heavy blow with u club or “billy,” on the right side of the head just above the ear. nnd felled to the earth. He I was not rendered entirely unconscious but j Gaiiaot tell how long he lay until be sufficient jly recovered to proceed on his way. He re j members, ns if in a dream, that while he lav upon the ground be felt a hand searching his i pockets and knew that he was being robbed, I but was not able to make any outcry. When j he became fully conscious he found that his > pocket book had been Liken by his assailant. This pocket book contained only two or three dollars in money, but then* were some valua ble papers in it. among them three negotiable or promissoiy notes, payable to John M. Wolf, or order—one for SI2OO, ami one for SIOO, both made by Daniel Wolfe: and one for S2OO made by Samuel Wolfe. The per petrator of this murderous assault and robbery is yet unknown, but it is to be hoped will be , discovered, ihe htoien notes mnv yet be the mram, of JUcovmnit the euihv pertiei.

Inger* I s majority, 8,403 The Senate Is eleven Republicans to ten Democrats; lust year fifteen Republicans to six Democrats. The House is 109 Re publicans to 132 Democrats ; lust year 130 Republican* to 111 Democrats. Hawley s majority for Congress in the first district is 1,280; Kellogg, in the second, 500; Starkweather, in the tljird, 1,548; Bar* man, iu the fourth, 1,075. The Baltimore Anurt'can has a despatch which attributes the defeat of the Repub licans to the laet that “the vote was light —travelling being bad.” The American will likely find that the sins of its party in Congress and elsewhere will make the political routes everywhere “hard roads to travel.” Cincinnati, April B.—All the returns in this city are now in except from two precincts, which are Deumcratic. John son. Democrat, for Mayor, has 902 major ity ; Warrington. Republican, for city so* Ik itor, 479 majority; Campbell, Republican, for prosecuting attorney. 521 majority; Henry Kessler.

Cincinnati, April B.—The election at Evansville, Indiana, resulted in a Republi can success, seven out of the twelve eoun ciluien being Republicans.

Annapolis municipal election took place on Monday last, when the previous Radi cal majority of 202, was reduced to 127 for the highest, and 48 for the lowest can didate on the ticket. The Radicals lost ■ the 2d ward, after carrying all the wards at the previous election. This result, says the Advertiser, is encouraging for the De mocrats at the next election. In Mansfield the Democrats were also suceesssul in the main. In Dayton the whole Democratic ticket is elected. In Chillioothe the Democrats elected the Mayor. The remainder of the ticket is doubtful. In laincaster the Citizens' tickets, as opposed to the Democratic tickets, was elected. In Cleveland the Independents elected I the Mayor, and the Republicans elected , the remainder of the ticket. : In Crestline the Democrats were vic | torious. In Circleville the Republicans were suc cessful. Things in Washington. j Defalcations are reported in the Dis trict of Columbia treasury, and that money _ collected and appropriated by law for the 1 schools and police is missing. “Where ! | has it gone?” is now the question. The ring have expended millions in Washing ton, and. like the late New York ring, have greatly beautified the city; hut be yond this, the charge is that a heavy per centage of the taxes have gone into the I pockets of the favorite ring men. While the population of the whole District of Columbia was 131,706 by the last census, or about one half that of Baltimore or Boston, the cost of this little machine is greater than that of all New England to gether, and exceeds the outlay for the Government* of Ohio and Illinois with over five millions of people. It is a question whether the abolition of the franking privilege will apply to the widow of President Lincoln, who received the right of franking, on her husband's death, for the rest of her natural life. Postmaster General Ores well, Senator Cameron and Senator Howe, accompanied by their wives, left Washington, Monday, tor Wilmington. N. C. The party will make a month's tour through the South The English Wheat Demand. It has been ascertained that the actual consumption of wheat in die United King dom during the last aix months was larger than was estimated, while the supply will be considerably less, making a difference ot 16,000.060 bushels. The Liverpool Courier estimates the quantity of prospec tive supplies at 32,000,000 bushels, and adds that to all present appearances we are I now worse off with reference to our proha-! hie supplies than we were six months ago. The estimate then formed was carefully made on what appeared to be reliable data. It was smaller than >me of the estimates put forth at the same time; unfortunately it threatens to be in itself 100 large. But that our want* will be met there is no doubt. They may be of necessity some what curtailed by higher prices, but higher prices will bring what is needed. The visible supply of wheat in America on March 23d, as published in the Globe last week, was 7.413,580 bushels against 9,. 273,110 bushels us compared with the same time in 1872. The prospects of good prices will place iu the market every available buabel of grain. Bminejs Local,.

Cuba.—Since the capture of Manta I nillo by the jmtriota of Cuba, and the ac * j qubit ion by them of large quantities of arms and mnnitions of war, the cause of free Cuba has assumed a fur more eucour i aging aspect. The weak have been strength * ened. and the strong made more certain and formidable in their movements, and ! actions. Hitherto the Cubans have been ‘ shut out from communication with tin * I outer world. They could not obtain either , anus, powder or hall to supply the men I | who were anxious tu fight under the (lag of I free Cuba. Kvery week detachments of patriot! had to be dismissed from active 1 service became they could not be armed. 1 This kept the army of patriots in a cramped - I condition, and enabled the Royalists to I overbear them in the field. If arms can ; be supplied there will he over two hundred i thousand Cubans under the flag in a few months, and that will end the contest | Spain is now called upon to send more i troops to Cuba. Tlial cannot well be done, j The Carlisle are pressing the government iin the north of Spain. All the available j troops of that country will be needed to put down thal movement, and therefore j Spain cannot continue to pour men into Cuba. When that supply is stopped, and a larger amount put into the hands of thu Cubans, the result cannot be u mutter of . doubt. Assistance for Cuba is ready The only point is to make it practicable to get men, money and arms to the right point. That we conceive can now be done, at least to a great extent, and hence the brightening of the cause of the patriots of Cuba. Brigham Young Retires from of | —A despatch from Salt Luke, April j S, says;—The Mormon Conference was l largely attended. This afternoon Brigham Young addressed the saints. He said he was getting old. and wanted young men to carry on the work he had commenced. He wanted seven counsellors to aid the first President, and finally he resigned the PWon of trustee of the Church, and on his recommendation President George A ! .Smith, now in Fmropc, was elected in his place. Young has retired generally from business, spiritual and commercial.’ It b* understood he contemplates going to Ari *oua with the San Francisco Mission. Dogk vh.
