PHILADELPHIA, October 7.-At a spe

day, Judges Strong, McKeunan and
Gadwall?der on the bench, the following
?[uestion, growing out of a report that
randuleut naturalization papers were in
existence, was propounded: Whether,
when in the. event of a. man offering to
vote upon a naturalization paper pur?
porting to have been issued out of the
proper offloe in Philadelphia, whioh
paper is known to bo fraudulent, either
ia cons?quence of tho applicant not hav?
ing been in tho country more than a few
months, or ia' consequence of his not
having boon to Philadelphia during that
time, a Deputy United States Marshal
can arrest anon person so offering and
endeavoring to vote apon the spot and
take him before a United States Com?
missioner? Judge Strong, the other
Judges concurring, said: "The eighth
section pf the Aot of Congress of Febru?
ary 28, 1871, ? defines very dearly the
duty of the . Marshal and Depaty Mar?
shal, and: I know ho authority in thu

SAVANNAH, GA,, October 7.-Reporl
from Ooaaties continue to swell th
Demooratio majority, whioh, from pr?
sent indications, will be 65,000.
The Washington Slar (Repnblioai
publishes tho following this evenin
from Philadelphia: Tho eleotion, t<
morrow, is the only thing thought <
or talked of. There is a general stan?
still in business, and every one is pr
paring for to-morrow. So far as th
oity ia concerned, the canvass of tl
Republicana is the most thorough at
systematic ever made. I am sorry
cannot say the same for the State. It
generally acknowledged that the Repu
lioan Committee is a very inefficient on
and its canvass has been a series
blunders. This, with the uapopulari
of Hartrauft, the Republican candida
for Governor, has had a dispirits
effect; bat fortunately all this was u
derstood early in the campaign, ai
every effort waa made to counteract
There are fow Liberal Republicans
the State, and if an unobjectionable m
had been placed in nomination for t
Governorship, the Republicans wot
sweep the State by 30,000 majority.
There seems to be no doubt, however, of
Hartranf t's elootion, end in pool sales he
is the ohoioe by 100 to 80. Even bets
are made that he will have 10,000 majori?
ty in the State. Baokalew is ezpeoted to
come to the city with 5,000 majority, and
Hartranft, it is said, will carry thia city
by 15,000 majority. Some put it as high
OB 17,000, and none lower than 10,000.
These are theoalcalations of the Repub?
lican. Committee. The Democrats, on
the other hand, claim that Buckalow will
come to the city with 20,000, and that
the city will not give Haatranft over
10,000 majority-thus cleating Baokalew
by 10,000. The indications are that the
Republican estimate is the correct one,
and betting men are using it as their
basis of operations. The total registra?
tion in the city is 162,000-an increase
of 30,000 over last year, when the State
ticket had 12,000 majority in the city.
The Democrats have been demoralized
in the city, and have aimed all their ef?
forts to the State. The Republicans
have taken advantage ot this, and their
work will certainly make Hartranft suc?
cessful. That the Democraoy have co?
lonized a large number of meu from
Baltimore and New York in many dis?
tricts, there is no doubt. The Republi?
cans, however, have organized a strong
detective force, whioh has been sent to
watoh and prevent sporting men from
voting. Sporting men from all over the
country are here, with John Morrissey
and John Chamberlain at their head.
There are regular pool sales established,
the same as at horse-racing, and it is es?
timated that $250,000 will change hands
on the result.
WASHINGTON, Ootober 7.-The British
Commission deoided an important prin?
ciple in two oases for tobacco burned at
Richmond. The claimants (Scotch mer?
chants) alleged themselves the owners of
the tobacco in question at the outbreak
of the war-that the President, by tho
proclamation of blockade, and the Con?
gress, by the non-intercourse Aot of
June, 1861, prevented their removal of
the same-although, nuder the non-in?
tercourse Act, the President was permit?
ted to license special and limited trade
with insurrectionary districts; and, as the
claimants alleged, snob licenses were
given to those willing to take an active
part against the rebellion, in preference
to aliens and neutrals. The claimants
charged the subs?quent destruction aad
loss of their tobacco to this preventioa
of removal by the United States, and
claimed the United States liable there?
for, on demurrer, to the memorialists.
The commission deoided against tho
claims-holding, in effect, the proclama?
tion of blockade, the non-intercourse
Act, and the praotice of the United
States, nuder them, lawful acts of war,
within the law of nations. If this claim
could have been sustained, the United
States would be made liable for an im?
mense amount of property ia the South,
owned by aliens at the outbreak of the
war. The Southern Claims Commission
commenced its sessions to-day.

The following communication address?
ed to tho New Orleans Picayune will
prove interesting to cotton planters
whose crops have been destroyed-by the
caterpillar, as it suggests a mode of ex?
terminating them. The writer says:
"During a long residence iu Central
America the writer has noticed tho
habits of a very diminutive ant called
the terrier ant. No insect will approach
its habitation. It is perfectly harmless
to vegetation, and will not permit any
insect, or even animal, to encroach upou
their premises under penalty of death.
They do not build nests like other ants,
but live anywhere, where there is not a
denso tropical shade. Tho writer is per?
fectly convinced that if they can bo im?
ported into tho ootton regions of the
United States, and will stand the olimate,
the ootton and even tho boll worm will
beoome a thing of the past. From
many experiments in the destruction of
insect life, the writer forms his opinion,
whioh can be corroborated by friends in
Central America, should any one inte?
rested in the ootton plant choose to
write. The first occasion that the writer
had to test the destructive attacks of the
terrier ant oa iuseot life was when stuog
by a stinging scorpion contained in the
sleeve of his coat-an inseot very tena?
cious of life, yet in less than three mi?
nutes after it was given to tho ants it was
dead. A centipede, oovered with a hard
armor, suffered the same fate in four
min?tes and a few seconds. A tarantula'
died in less than two minutes. A snake
nine feet long in fifteen miaates. There
are numerous other experiments made
by the writer, whioh he could give, but
deems unnecessary. Tho natives ia Cen?
tral America transport the ants from
placo to place by putting a little sugar ia
a bottle or calbore, (gourd,) and wheu
full transport them safely."

A CLEROTMAN IMPRISONED FOR AN
ABUSIVE SERMON.-A German paper
states that tho Rev. Von Felstow, a
Dantzio minister, has been condemned
to a mouth's imprisonment in a Prussian
fortress, for having, on the 21st of Janu?
ary last, in tho oourse of a sermon, used
opprobrious epithets against tho Jews.
The court deoided that such expressions
were entirely at variance with tho cha?
racter and position of a minister of reli?
gion, and that fanaticism would not be
tolerated in a country in which nil citi?
zens, irrespective of creed, were equal
bofore tho law. If this law were in force
in England and tho United States, we
fear that the jails of tho country would
be filled with victims.

THE SIGNS.-AU over the country, the
Illiberal press presents cheering evi?
dences of a revival of the "Greeley
craze." The Missouri Republican bas
the following ringing article on tho sub?
lt is very clear that the opposition
cause is recovering from the unmeasura?
ble depression which overtook it just
after the Yermout and Maino eleotions.
A re-aotion of popular sentiment in favor
of it has set in; tho traces and evidences
of it are to be seen everywhere. Noue
perceive it so clearly as the alarmed Ad?
ministration partisans. They admit it
without intending to do BO. .Greeley's
BpeeohePjKI/urtin's letter and ex-Governor
Seymour's declaration for the Liberal
ticket have had, and are stilt having,
marked effect on public sentiment; and
the shock which the startling Credit
Mobilier exposures caused bas benumbed
the Administration party, and caused v.
perceptible withdrawal of popular confi?
dence from it. Tho Administration or?
gans have suddenly dropped their voices
to a lower key. All that they have to
claim in Pennsylvania is that Grant will
carry it iu November, which is tanta?
mount to a confession that their candi?
date for Governor, Hartranft, will not
carry it in October. The Boanerges of
the Administration, Senator Morton, is
sweating in agony iu Indiana. He has
ceased to asBail, and is now fighting in
self defence. The President's Cabinet
have broken down under the whip and
spur with whioh their master rode them.
Their appearance in the field as solicitors
of votes for the President showed tho
people what mediocrities they are, and
excited a sort of dull disgust at a cause
that could take the highest and gravest
officials of the Government away from
their duties at Washington, and put
them to making partisan speeches to
negro audiences in North Carolina. In
Illinois, in Iudiaua, in Pennsylvania and
in Ohio, the united Democrats and Libe?
rals aro making a strong, spirited and
BUCoesBful canvass. They are appealing
to audiences which never fail to exhibit
sympathy for the cause they advocate;
and the symptoms of popular ohauges
in favor of Horace Greeley are so mani?
fest that the allies claim that they will
carry all theso great Statee, even includ?
ing Ohio, whioh they scarcely thought of
churning throe weeks ago.
The Administration party are openly
buying votes and importing negroes, to
resist this rising tide of popular feeling
against them; but it will be of no avail.
Their cause is on the decline, and the
allies are advancing their standards every
day. Tho triumph of Hendricks and
Buckalow in Ootober, to be followed by
the triumph of Greeley in November, is
what the signs of the times indicate at
A WESTERN TORNADO-AN ARKANSAS
TOWN ALMOST DESTROYED.-The mail
brings reports of an unusual number of
accidents from the recent storm on the
lake*? aud in the Mississippi Valley. The
following special despatch to the Missou?
ri Republican gives a startling account of
tho gale in Arkansas, on the 29th ult.:
The steamer Julia, that came down last
uight, reports a terrific tornado as having
occurred ninety miles above here, yester?
day afternoon, at Osceola, Arkansas.
The storm struck the town, contaiuiug
perhaps 300 houses, about 1 o'clock,
coming from the South-west, and before
tho oitizous could realize its extent, or
before they could even get to their doors,
it had burst upon thom with unprece?
dented fury aud violence, sweeping be?
fore it houses, trees, cattle, fences and
everything movable. Trees were carried
by tho winds like straws; cattle, horses
and males were blown about the streets,
and, becoming wild with fright, ran hel
i tor skelter iu all directions, and the air
was literally thick with fragments of
every imaginable thing. The cotton
fields were completely riddled, the stalks
torn up by the roots and the lint blown
from tho bolls. Fences wer* torn into
kindling-wood, houses taken up and car?
ried eutirely from their foundations, and
roofs and parts of roofs were whirling in
the air like autumn leaves, and in lesa
time than it has taken to writo it, the
town, once a beautiful place, was a muss
of ruins. Three ohurches and six school?
houses wore biowu down in a moment,
I and many of tho heaviest timbers carried
entirely away, and nearly every dwelling
house in Once?la and its immediate vici?
nity was either blown down or unroofed.
The mills and cotton-gin belonging to
Mr. EilditiB, near towu, were torn to
fragmouts, and hardly a vestige left of
the buildings to mark the spot whore
they stood. lu all, eighteeu persons
were killed or badly wounded. Throe,
two men and a woman, are known to
have been killed outright, and others
will die of their injuries. Afterspending
its force, the tornado orossed the river
mid went direotly up stream ton miles,
twisting large forest trees up by the
roots aud throwing somo iuto tho river,
while others, uot so large, were oarried
high in tho air and lodged in tho branches
of larger ones. Its course is marked
now by a barren waste ou both sides of
the river, entire cotton fields having
been luid level with the earth, and all
buildings ia its course razed to the
ground. When it left tho river it took a
North-easterly direction, swooping every?
thing in ita course. Fortunately, tho
steamer Julia barely missed it. Had she
been in its course, the fate of hor pas?
sengers would inevitably have beeu deuth,
and tho boat would have capsized and
went to tho bottom. A rough estimato
of tho loss to tho town of Osceola places
it ut $200,000.
Tho departures from Alsace and Lor?
raine of inhabitants who decline to as?
sume German citizenship are upon au
immense scale. It is estimated that
88,000 emigrating Alsatians will tako up
their residence in Naucy alone, while
large numbers will go to other places.
18,000 persons loft Metz the last fort?
night, to seek homes under Freaoh juris?
diction. Tho population of that cityt
[now numbers only 10,000 persons.

The St. Louis Democrat thus describes
the scene at the conclusion of Satanta's
speech at the recent Indian ooancil:
When Satanta concluded, there followed
a scene not easily described. Big Tree
clasped Captain Alvon! in his arms and
squeezed him like a bear. Satanta shook
hands with the whites, and then passed
aronnd and shook the hand of each of
the Indian men, taking no notice of five
or six squaws sitting by themselves OD
the South side. When he came to the
mon of his own tribe he embraced each
of them, kissing them on the oheek,
while the tears streamed from their eyes.
He shed no tears himself, however, al?
though his feelings were deeply moved.
His sister threw her arms about his neck
and kissed him many times. When be
came to Ten Bears he placed his hand
fondly on the old man's face, and uttered
words that brought the moisture into the
veteran's eyes. Big Tree had three
brothers present. These and all the
men of his tribe he embraced, and point- '
ing to the Son of the Sun and two
others, said to one of the whites: "My
brotherl my brotherl" The pale faces
who witnessed these demonstrations of
affection on the part of the red men of
tho forest, were deeply impressed.
Their ideas of Indian stoicism, as de?
rived from Fenimore Cooper and other
romaneo writers, were dissipated, and
they saw that the Indian has a heart as
well as tho white brother.
NEW CAMPAIGN DOCUMENT-A SUBSTI?
TUTE FOP. TUE Ku KLUX ORDER.-It is
understood that the report alluded to in
the following Washington special to the
New York Post, is to be used as a cam?
"The officers who were Bent to the
Southern States by the Department of
Justioe to examine into tho condition of
affairs, and to detect any organized at?
tempt to violate the revenue laws and
Enforcement Act, have submitted volu?
minous reports to the Attorney-General.
From these it appears that the Ku Klux
order is giving away to a new organiza?
tion, similar to the former in many re
Hpeots, but having a different mode of
accomplishing the same ends. This
new organization is spreading rapidly
through all the Southern States, and is
intended to be made very effectual for
Greeley during tho present campaign hy
intimidating voters in localities whore
tho Republican element is not in the as?
cendant. The order has established
lodges in nearly every County in Missis?
sippi, Alabama and Georgia, and is
rapidly extending itself to other States.
Several officers of the Government suc?
ceeded in gotting initiated into the
order, and observed fully its workings.
They are, therefore, enabled to take
stops to prevent its plans from beiog
successfully carried out."

being consumed in charging, thus doing
away with tho fire to keep up pressure.) |
