Tie opinion cf tbe District Attorney,
which is f no value save only to bring
another enrse on tbe Democratic party,
brings out an affidavit to give some excu
ses for the high handed and revoltionary
course that the return judges determined
to pursue. Tbe affidavit reads as fol
Personally appeared before me, a
clerk of tiie court in and for tbe County of

lltb day ef October, 1871, he was, after
the Lour of teu o'clock, almost cooetaut-
Jy in attendance on tbu election poll of
hippetidburr election district, and while
converging with a voter tbe said voter
was approached in his hearing and in
formed that he could have two dollars
for bis vote; that a short time after tbe
same party returned to raid voter and re
marked to him, " This is a a mere matter
of dollars aud cents ; do you want the
money t" or words to that effects, and
deponent firmly believes this vote, as
well as many others at that poll, were in
fluenced by bribery aud corruption, and
further saith not.

Fortified with these two documents tbe
return judges are prepared for their
work of the violation of tbe voice of the
people, which they executed in the fol
lowing document :
We, the return judges of the Nine
teenth Senatorial District, having met at

17, 1571, to count np the votes cast iu

Weakeley had 4605 votes and Henry K.
I'feifier had 39-51 votes; and it appear
ing that fr .nd and bribery have been
made use of in obtaining said votes to so
large an extent as to vitiate the election,
we decline to certify to tho election of
either of said candidates, and refer the

The Harriebirrg Telegraph speaks'
tlms of the action of the return judges
'-The return judges are mere ministerial
officers whose simple duty is to examiue
i the returns and give the certificate to the
I candidate having the majority of votes
In refusing to do this the return judges
- . . ,. . . . A ,
j nf Nineteenth district transcended
. their duties and committed a rroes out-
t,, Neither the affidavit of Duncan
nor the advice of tbe District Attorney
! affords the slightest excuse for tbe perpe
j traiion of this outrage. Duncan sweats
! that at tbe Bhippeusburg box be heard
an, offer of two dollars made for a vote
but he does not say whether tbe offer
: was made by a J'emocrat or Republican,
or whether tbe man to whom the offer
was made accepted it and voted or not.
As for the district Attorney, in giving
the advice he did, be either displayed
a gross ignorance of law or willfully vio
lated his oath and honor If he is an
intelligent man, and has studied law to
any purpose, he could not "btllttt that
the return judges "would be justified iu
refusing a certificate to Mr. Weakley "
The whole thing is a piece of rascality
concocted by the leaders of the Demo
critic party, who not being able to retain
power by tbe votes of tbe people are
shameless and vile enough to attempt to
snatch it by fraud."
Fishery Tre-hles-WIll they Lead te War t
It is generally known that trouble has
existed between onr Government and
the Government of Great Britain in re
gard to the rights of the American fisher
men along the coast of the English pos
sessions in America. A year ago the
matter looked quite threatening, but
since the meeting of the Joint High
Commission, at Washington, the trouble
seemed easier and the Lope was enter
tained that all difference would be soon
ioon reconciled. But the trouble has
been increased and complicated with
in tbe pant eight weeks. In Septem
ber last an American fishing schooner was
seized by a British cutter and taken into
an English port. The fishing schooner
was from Gloucester, Mars. Her cap
ture created luteuse excitement. It was
resolved at Gloucester by certain parties
to recapture her. Tbe ichooncr was ta
ken out of Guyesbnrough, where she lay,
by the boid fishermen f Massacbuetts,
and run back to Gloucester, where i
public reception was given to tbe intre
pid fishermen. How this will end can
not now be foreshadowed One thing is
however, certainly told by tbe action of
tbe people of Massachuetts in their recep
tion of those who returned the captured
ecbooner, and that is, that tbe people of
New England are ready for war on tbe
fishing question, if tbe British authori
ties adhere to the position that they have
taken on this question. We publish the
following dispatches iu regard to the trou
Gloucester, Mass Oct. 16. 1871
The schooner "Edward A. Horton," Tor-
ry, master, of this port, was seized Sep
tember 1, near St George, N. S. by the
cutter "Sweepstakes," for alleged viohv
lion of tbe fishing treaty, and taken iuto
Guyeborough, while the master and crew
were turned ashore to get home the best
way they could. She had a full cargo of
mackerel and was nearly ready to come
home. The case was of a peculiarly ag
gravating nature, as she belonged to
Messrs McKenrie, Knowlton k Co., a
comparatively new firm, who had oue of
their vessels seised last year and were
put to much expense and iuconvenience
in getting the. vessel bonded-
There has been a deep-seated feeling
of indignation prevalent among the fish
ermen and fishing owners at these anda
cious seizures, and the attempt on the
part of the owner of the schooner "Clara
E. Friend" to obtain bis vessel, which
ended in her recapture by the Domioion
steamer, has added fuel to the flames.
Tbe plan of the recapture of tbe '-Horton,"
so far as your correspondent can
learn, was concocted here in town, and
one of her Wners. it is said, was oue of
the prime ' movers. These plans were
kept so secret that none but a chosen

A vessel was seen hovering ontside,
which, no doubt, aided in the affair
As soon as this news was disseminated
tbe people ef Gloucester were aroused to
fever heat, and various were the conjec
tures whether or not the daring owner
and crew would succeed hi eluding pur
suit, and bring the craft safe around
Eastern Point lighthouse in Gloucester
heritor. Every vessel approaching the
harbor has been closely scanned by eager
eyes on shore, and the fishermen were all
prepared to give the M Horton' and bet
crew a cordial reception.
The "Horton" was safely brought into
Gloucester harbor, and the fallowing de
spatch tells how the matter waa viewed
by tha people :
Gloucxstbb, Mass , Oct. 20. Last
night the population turned out fa mte,
headed by the Gloucester Cornet Band,
marched to the town hall, which was
filled to its utmost capacity, to welcome
Captain Knowlton. Ibe appearance of
Captain Knowlton was the signal for an
ovation which would have done honor to
a king. The meeting was called to or
der by A. F Sticking and Benjamin II
Corliss was chosen chairman-
Mr. Corliss made an address, giving
tbe history of the fishery dispute, and
the aggressions of the British and Colo
nial authorities npon our fishing rights.
and defending the act of Captain Ktmwl
ton and his crew in rescuing the "Hor
ton" as a right fnl one. He by present
ing to Captain Knowlton, on behalf of
the donors, a purse of 81,000 the gift of
bis fellow-citizens to enable him to de.
fray a portion of the expenses he had in
curred. Captain Knowlton returned thanks for
the generous action of his friends. Cap
tain Knowlton was escorted to bis resi
dence by a large concourse of people.
and it was midnight before the town re
fumed its wonted quiet.
TltftRK seems to be something radical
ly wrong with the Cumberland and
Franklin county Democrats. In another
article we give tbe particulars of the un
lawful action pursued ' by the return
judges of those counties in refusing to
sign a certificate of election for Senator
Weakley. The Cumberland county re
turn judge pursued tbe same course with
regard to Judge Junkin. M hen the
judges met at Bloomfield to cast up the
votes for President Judge, he refused to
sign a certificate for Judge Junkin. This
repudiation of a lawful course has its
parallel in the actions of tbe Southern
rebels, who, when they were defeated by
tbe people, repudiated the will of tbe
people, and resorted to unlawful means
to accomplish their ends. Tbe law points
out the means of redress in ease of fraud.
Return judges cannot sit in judgment in
Leglative and District Judges.

been elected :

My Dear Mr. Editor .-I didn't say
to yon when I wrote yon the letter last
week that I wrote it on Saturday even
iug. I know'd that yon could tell that
by the date Saturday evening and Sat
urday night by the Speaks is believed to
be the greatest time of all the week.
After Wednesday we always look for
ward to its coming with the biggest hope
that it will be full of the nicest fun
that can be scared up in this Seven Star
region ; and after it is over until tbe next
Wednesday we always look back to what
was done on that night Yes, sir, I tell
yen that with us Saturday nights are the
big nights of the year, and when I get
through writing for the Skntimsl, I am
agoing to write for pay for the paper
called ' Saturday Ni-jtd " I am agoing
to write a first class story from the Seven
Star Tavern It shan't be none of your
fine-spun dandyfied love stories tbat we
find now around everywhere in this conn
try which Andy Jackson once governed
tbat always ends so nicely just where
tbe babies and housekeeping comes in
No, sir, I'll write no snch stuff as that.
I'm agoing to write something solid, as
becomes an old Jackson Democrat from
the Seven 8tar. I'm agoing to write a
State paper one that will be sure to take
a stand alongside of them articles that
are sometimes printed in a magasiue tbat
is printed in New York, called "Tie Gal
nxy '' I'm told that tbat word means a
parcel of stars. If it does, yon can see
bow nice it fits in, to have a writer from
the Seven Stars, Greenwood township,
Juniata connty I'm agoing to stick to
"Saturday Xight,'' though. I'm agoing
to write over my own name Barton
Speak for that paper, as does Judge
Black, who wanted to be a Jackson Dem
ocrat in 1860, but missed it just for tbe
reason that he and James Buchanan
you fellows called biin "Old Buck"
twisted a rope of sand and tried to hook
it fast to them tarnel Southern fellows
aud pull them into tbe Uuion, but they
shook their heads and put their fingers to
tbeir nose and said You can't come it,':
and sneezed, and the rope broke, aud
"Old Buck" was drowned, and Black
never got to be a Jackson Democrat.
This Slate paper of mine for "Saturday
N'glit" is not to go back any farther in
tbe history of the country than to that
great and glorious fighting Geueral An
drew Jackson, but shall be devoted main
ly to politics iu Juniata, where I was
bom, aud bave always lived, and have
never been outside of the county, except
a few times to Freeburg, Snyder county,
and to my trading place, Liverpool, Per
ry county. I'm agoing to give to the
world a political biography of tbe master
of tbe ring and of a parcel of bis very
near and dear political friends, with a
complete account of how they gouge ns
old line fellows out. 1 1 makes my blood
blood bile to think of it, and I thank you
a thousand times for letting me have a
chance to write all about them and their
bad work. I'll do it. I'll not charge
you one cent for the work, but rather ;
.1 :. I : a .1 : . i t I
1 1 1 a ii iuibp uavuie uic trinu pnnieu Hiiu-i
uiata, I'll pay you for the printing. But
the printers of "Saturday Xight ' will
have to pay me, as they don't bave much
of a circulation in this county But 1
most forgot to tell you that a political
history of the ''Rtgit'er" is to go along
with the other.
I don't want you to tbiuk it hard in
me when 1 say tbat in them State papers
I'm agoing to give you Republicans goes
for taking hold of that traitor, Andy
Johnson. Didn't he make a nice fist of
himself ? Tbe other week I saw in tbe
"Sentinrl' that he's agoing around the
circle for Doolittle, who is running for
Governor in Wisconsin. I'll bet he'll
make a nice bst ot Doolittle. tie II be
defeated fifteen thousand anyhow. If you
know any one that' wants to bet, send
bim down, and we 11 clinch it at the Seven
Stars. If it hurts your feelings to read
how the Republican party has been
abused by that traitor, Johnson, why 1
can send you word what number of the
paper it will appear in, and you do not
need to read it. That's clever, isn't it
1 believe if I would ask you what paper
to write my State paper for, that yon
would recommend tbe "Galaxy" before
the Saturday Night.'' But. as I said
in the beginuing. I always liked "Sal
unlay Jiitjhl. Tbe name always makes
me feel good. Tbe only serious thought
about it is that I am nearing the Satur
day night of my days I am almost 55
years old. But I will yet find a heap of
fun in writing these letters. On them
nights I am always at home, writing for
the prese . Everybody will now see my
name in print, and I won't b6ther them
Court House fellows any more to put my
name in the jury wheel, aud if I ever
attend another convention, it will be as
an out and out man against the ring.
But I promised to write you some
thing about the Fair that I went to at
Perrysville. I never before went to a
Fair. Tbey all told me that I ought to
go on the middle day that on that day
everything showed nicer than on any
other day. Of course I didn't know by
experience. I belived my neighbors
for I knowed that the . ring didn't bave
nothing to do with the Fair. The mid
dle day was Thursday. Whan I got np
in the morning to ata.it, I found that it
was a very ugly morning, and I said
"Hang the Fair. I guess it isn't worth
nothing anyhow, and I won't go np in
this bad weather." After a while the
day got better, and I started and got to
Perrysville about dark. I stopped at a
friend's house, and after supper we went
down to the tavern. Tbe tavern here.
like at the Confederate Cross-Roads aud
at the Seven Stars, .is a mighty great in
stitution for polities. I knowed that I'd
hear some politics. I did.' I heard a
heap more than I expected. I knowed
that there were some men about Perrys
vide that ain't ring men. but I didn't
kpow tbat they are so thick. The ring
men tried to explain to us gouged ont
fellows bow it came that we got licked,
and they showed ns as clear as mud how
it came that Junkin whipped Graham
They said "Fraud." It was hard work
to say that word. Tbey neat ly choked
every time. Oue of our fellows said that
the Democrats must be guilty of that
fraud, for didn't about seven hundred of
them vote for Junkin. That was a sick
ener for tbe ring. It broke, and I went,
too, and slept a sound sleep on that, at
my friend's house.
The next morning the first thing that
I thought about was the ring. The next
thing that popped into my head was the
Fair. But I guess I'll bave to quit writ
ing this time. This letter has got so long,
and I have just got to tbe Fair, which
will take two or three letters to tell all
about. I know you won't say a word
against me for writing so much about tbe
ring. If Andy Jackson was alive, he'd
be talking more about it tbati the ring
talks about tbe Constitution.
I'll abut up just here, and won't write
another line till next Saturday night.
