j. s. weirs. Eil:or. Henry O. Venxor, the Canadian weather prophet, died at Im home in Montreal, Canada, last Sunday niorn-in? in the 43d year of hU are. So little attention U lxin paid to Congress, just now, that it might run away with the country, some day, and nobody be any the wiser until it had made good its escape. Some men hastily come to the conclusion that there is no law for rascals in New York. They make this statement in face of the fact that a poor mail whos:me timeao stole a twenty-five dollar coat from U. S. Grant, Jr., the partner of Ferdinand Ward, to buy food for his family, was sent to prison for five Years. 85 61 26 13 4 Henry Ward Beec her has a curious idea about the foundation of true friendship. He says "every friendship should be founded on the doctrine of total depravity and that's the only use I know of for total depravity. Then every excellence revealed is just so much more than you supposed, and every good quality developed is so much clear gain." Recent events in Wall street and now the second collapse of the Reading Companies ought to have the eilect of curing a good m&ur people of the stock speculating mania. But when this infatuation once gets hold of a victim it seems to hold on as long as there is a dollar left to hold on to. When the modern Kphraiiu is joined to his idol of stock gambling all we can do is to let him alone. Few farmers have an adequate idea of the number of Hooded cattle annually sold in this country at the present time. Sales of Jersey, Guernsey and other finely-bred cows are held every week. The records show that 3,234 Short-horns were sold during the year 1883, at an average price of $205.56; 25'J head of . Hoh-teins at an average price of f23.f', and IfiSS Jersevs at the still higher price of 4U9. George F. Edmumld -John A. Logan - -John Sherman Joseph R. Hawley Robert T. Lincoln -William T. Sherman - The result of the second ballot was auuounccd at 1:20, and the increase of liiaiue's vote was the cause of an ex uberant manifestation on the part of the audience. Till It I It ALLOT. The third ballot was immediately proceeded with, excitement and interest increasing as the voting progressed. The third ballot resulted: James G. Blaine - 375 Chester A. Arthur - - - 274 George F. Edmunds - - - 69 John A. Logan - 53 John Sherman - 25 Joseph R. Hawley 13 Robert T. Lincoln ... 8 William T. Sherman - - 2 Before the otlicnd result of the third ballot was announced it was given out that Senator Iogau had telegraphed his managers to change his vote to Blaine. The excitement and confusion were great. The result of the third ballot was announced at 2.10. The gains made on the Blaine vote and the understanding that the Iogan vote would probably be transferred to Blaine produced another storm of cheering and wild enthusiasm for Blaine. The motion to adjourn was voted down, and amid some confusion the Chairmau directed the clerk to call the roll of the State for the fourth ballot. The secretary called the roll of the States for the fourth and last ballot: 511 207 - 41 7 - 15 The Democratic national convention will have eighteen delegates less than the Republican convention, no representative from the territories le-iug admitted to the former. It w ill need 535 votes to nominate a Democratic presidential candidate, as the two-thirds rule prevails iu its conventions. About 300 of the 802 delegates have leen elected. In the Republican convention, comoosed of 820 delegates, 411 were necessary to nominate. Wherever there is a demand for iron and steel, busiuess matters look up, aud the laboriug classes are contented and happy, feeling conscious that their labor w ill give home its cheer and make its inmates comfortable. A wruer on the influence of these de mands, says": As these metals are in demand, so does all others business grade itself. When the iron and steel market is dull it follows that there are idle hands in all directions suspension in coal mines, furnaces, rolling mills, forges and factories of every kind. We do not pretend to say that a boom is approaching in these metals, but it is safe to say that the trade indicates improvement which will be profitable in all directions. B2pmi:Air itat:::;al c::m:rn::;. Jmes 0. Elaine for President John A. Legaa for Viea Fresident. Cuicago, June 6. One hour and a half before time for the Convention to assemble vast crowds of people were in front of the entrauces waiting for the door to open. It seemed as if there had been no change from last night when thousands demanded admittance to a hall already crowded. The doorkeepers, policemen and sergeants at arms exercised great patience, and there was little irritation. One of the doors being opened, aud the crowd being in a measure repressed, the hall filled up rapidly. At 10:30 a. m. nearly 10,000 people were in the hall, and outside the doors and in the immediate vicinity 3000 to 4000 more were standing, eager for admittance. It was twenty minutes past the hour for meeting when the gavel fell, and Chairman Henderson announced that the Convention would be opened by prayer by Rev. Dr. Scudder, of the Second Presbyterian Church. At the conclusion of the prayer the Chairman in accordance with the order of business adapted, directed the Secretary to call the roll of States on the first ballot for a candidat for President of the United States. The progress of the roll call was watched with excited interest, and announcements of the votes of various States was received with cheers. FIRST BALLOT. The result of the first ballot was officially announced as follows: James G. Blaine - - 334 i Chester A. Arthur - - - 278 George F. Edmunds - 93 John A. Logan - - - 63 John Sjerman 30 Joseph R. Hawley - - 13 Robert T. Nincoln - - -4 William T. Sherman - 3 Total 818 . Necessary to choice - - 410 SECOND BALLOT. There being no choice, the Chairman directed that the roll of State be called for a second ballot The result was as follows: James G. Blaine - - - . 349 Chester A. Arthur - 276 FOURTH I! ALLOT. Blaine Arthur .... Edmunds - Logan .... Hawley .... Lineolu - The result was announced at 4.40 and even before thw last figures were pronounced bv Mr. McPherson, the vat audience aro.-e and broke out into another mad demonstration of enthusiasm; cheers resounded; the band struck up an inspiring air; hats and handkerchief's aud National flags were waved. A large square banner from Kansas was carried through the hall, promising large majorities in the State for Blaine, its two uprights being cap-jed with new brooms. A stuffed eagle from Colorado was also carried around in procession, the roar ofartillery outside was heard commingling with the louder roar of voices made, and amid gn at enthusiasm the nomination was made unanimous. Tha Convention then took a recess until 8 p. M. EVENING SESSION. It was 8.15 o'clock wheu the Chairman's gavel fell and he announced that praver would be offered bv Rev. Dr. Charles O Reillv.of Detro t. Dr. O'Reilly is Treasurer of the Irish National league of America, aud is the first Catholic to open a Republican National Convention with pra.'er. It may then be said that the Republicans have introduced two new features in this Convention. A colored man ns temporary Chairman and a representative of the Catholic Church invited to participate in official proceed in 33 on an equality with Protestant ministers. Dr. O'Reilly is a lifeloug Republican. The roll of State was then called for the presentation of candidates for Yk-e President. When Illinois was reached there was great cheering, and Senator Plumb (Kansas) took the stand to present the name of General John A. Logan. The name of Logan provoked loud and long-continued cheering. Jude Houck ( Term.), J udge Thurston (Neb.) Mr. Bradly ( Kv), Senator J. W. Lee, (Pa.). Mr. Hoar (Mich ), Hon. Frank Morev (La.) ami Mr. Pettibone (Tcun.) seconded Logan's nomination. The roll of State was then called, and Logan receive 1 every vote except in New York, six being cast for Gres-ham and one for Foraker. In jolling the vote of Pennsylvania for Vice President one delegate, Alexander Crowe, Jr., refused to vote for Logan. The vote was cast blank. Mr. Crowe's action was based upon the charges of Logan being disloyal in the early stages of the war and to his opposition to the Fitz John Porter bill. A letter had been received from Secretary Lincoln i.i which he declined to allow his name to be used in connection with the Vice Presidency. The convention adjourned sine die amid the wildest enthusiasm, ami cannons were immediately fired in honor of the nomination. ADDITIONAL LOCAL. CUMBERLAND VALLEY STATE NORMAL SCHOOL.

Si-nbi-ry, June 7. J. C McFar-land, aged twenty-two, a coal merchant at the town of Northumberland, two miles from here, committed suicide to-day, by shooting himself in the right temple. He wrote a farewell note to his mother. Then he bade his friends good-bye, who were with him at the time, but were not quick enough to frustrate his intention w hen he drew a Smith fc Wesson revolver from his pocket and committed the act. They at first thought he was jesting. lie had been with them to a dance last niht, ami seemed as gay as any one E resent, and no cause is known for is action. Love spells have not "gone out'' altogether even in this prosaic age. At the crass-examination of ex-Senator Sharon at San Francisco, in a suit of breach of promise brought against him by Miss Hill, it was made known that this young lady had sought to bew itch the ex-Senator by putting his socks into a new-made grave, having first charged them not after the manner of Santa Claus, but with cabalistic papers and locks of her own hair. This mystic rite seems to have been quite effectual or something else was since Miss Hill confessedly charmed her admirer to considerable purpose, if not up to the point of marriage.
