port M. Christophle, and those op?

while negotiations ore going on for a
union for tbe extreme and moderate
Right, in opposition to constitutional
bills.

West Pennsylvania branch road at
Powers' Run: Since the pipe was torn
up ou Friday, a force of ouo hundred
men, under Colonel Croightou, have i
been encamped on tho spot to prevent j
any attempt to relay tbo pipe. Ou ]
Saturday evening, in obedience to in?
structions, nearly five hundred ma?
chinists, laborers, und car builders ]
assembled at tho depot in Aitoona aud
started in a special train to reinforce)
their friends at Power's Run. The

ViCKaDor.o, M133., December 7.?
There has been for mnue time trouble
brewingjbotwnen tbe Tux-pay ere' Aaso
oiation und Citizens aud tbo County
officials. Tbo Sheriff was toting with?
out a legal bond, and tho Board of Su?
pervisors refused to order a new one,
although the time for paying taxes bad
arrived. Two or three other officials
were ouder indictment for forgory und
embezzlomont, aud the citizens, de?
spairing of any relief from partisnn
courts, held a meeting, last Wednes?
day, and in a body proceeded to the
Court Honso to demand the resiguu
tion of tbe Sheriff, Chancery Clerk,
Treasurer and Coroner. All fled ex?
cept Sheriff Crosby?a negro?aud bo
signed hie resignation. On Saturday,
a card appeared ou the streets, signed
"Crosby," calling on all citizens of
Warren County?Republicans, white
und blaok?to come to his aid and sup?
port him in his position. Crosby pub
lioly, and through tho papers, denied
tho authority of the card, yet this
morning armed bodies of negroes ap?
peared udvaucing on the city, from six
different roads. The alarm was sounded
about 'J o'clock, and the Citizen? gath?
ered en mnsse, armed and immediately
advanced to meet the uegroes on tho
Baldwin's Ferry road. Tbo negroes
woro met just outside the city, on
Grove street, about 200 strong. The
commander uf tbe citizens wurued the
negroes to disperse, but they refused,
aud immediately iiriug commenced on
both sides. Tho uegroes rutreated
about a mile uud again made a stand
in tho old breast-wot ka and house, but
were noon routed. Tbe loss in this
engagement was one citizen?Oliver
Urown?killed; about twelve or fifteen
negroes killed, several wounded and
about twenty prisoners. Ou the Bill's
Ferry road, abuut 250 negroes were
mot and routed, after a short engage?
ment, with several killed and wounded.
Andrew Owens, a negro, who com?
manded tho negroes on tbo Baldwin's
Furry road, was captured and commit?
ted to jail. In an interview with a re?
porter, Owens says he was ordered by
Sheriff Crosby to eoino to tbe city to?
day, with all the armed men ho could
get together. Alexander Stackhouse, j
from Newton, ouo of thq captured ne?
groes, a ?ys the order for all the negroes
to oome to Vickshurg, this moruing,
was read in church, Suuday. Crosby,
who is under guard at tho Court House,
denies ho guvo such orders. It is re?
ported this evening that negroes are
committing depredations iu the coun-I
try. The intense exoitemeut that pre- j
vailed this moruiug has subsided to u
great degree; yet many citizens are
under arm?, and all the roads are pick?
eted.

Tho Herald tuya tho menage of
Grant is a more creditable document, j
both in point of reasoning ana literary <
exeoution, than its predecessors Irom I
tho same souroe. Tbe President makes
it clear enough that in his view that i
tbe three principal causes which have,
le i to tho disastrous defeat of his
party, aro tho prostration of bu.sincs?, !
the condition of tho Southern States'
and tho unsuccessful experiment of
reforming civil society. This is not
directly stated, but it is necessarily im?
plied in tho texture of his views ou
those subjects. Tho ?um of Iii? mos-j
sage, ao far as it has party bearing, is
the coiumilul of the President to tbej
restoration of a sound currency, an
implied promise to treat the South
with lenity and jufclic;?, und uhan lou
the civil cervico reform unless Con?
gress support it by legislation. This
is the programme of President Grant
for re-instating the Republican party.
Tho President bus got tho Spanish
question into such a L-tato that it can
be fanned into a fl mie whenever ho
thinks it expedient; he relit i; on the
couutry to .support h.ta iu a war in
which t;,p abolition of slavery in Cuba
a id breaking tho yoko of colonial
servitude will ho the lending idea; tint
Gen. Grant makes a stupendous mis?
take ii ho thinks be oan play this des?
perate gumo with success. If ho has
"pigeou-holed" our just complaint
against Spain with such purpose, he
will have, cause to rue tho duy when
ho meditated such a trick. The
licnnciil recommendations of tho mos
sage ar.-, sound iu principle but defect
ivo in detail.
Tho Time* oonHidorfi tho President's
views ou finance havo undergone no
change, and his proposition to repeal
llio legal tender clause in sound. The
President, in stating ho will utill tin*
tain Kellogg, does not any what he
will do about Packard or Casey, which
is a pity. The Times thinks the Presi?
dent';! icferouoe to Southern matters
is plain advice, given in kindness and 1
fraukness. We are sorry that, ho uu
nonnees bis intention of abandoning
civil ?ervice reform, unless Congress
distinctly supports it by legi-latioti.
It wua an attempt that promised much
aud might have been mide to yield a
groat defeat. With his reoommetida
ttotia us to specie puyment and free
banking, we ure in entire sympathy.
Tho Tribune oontddets this tbe best
raessage-'of-'-tbe- -President **pm*?Wr
beoaqse .it was written . under the
ohastoning of tho (lute elections. ' It
oondomne his position towards Louisi-1
ana, but commends mainly nearly all
the reel; of the message.
The SltH says the President's Mes
eage is reasonably sound on bard mo?
ney aud roturn tu specie payment; but
the President's arguments are not as
urgent as his theories uro sound, while'
sotno uf his plans for retiring our paper !
money and reviving gold und silver an
circulating medium, will provoke se?
vere criticism, not only of lufl-UionistH
hut of hard money tnou us well. With
this exception, his recommendation |
of free banking and the view* he now |
expresses concerning currency, are but j
a reiteration uf bis veto of the green- i
back bill of lust session.
The World says President Girant
and Secretary Bristow are leas in doubt
thau the Republican press aud politi- j
cians as to thu significance of tho over?
throw of their party in the lato elec?
tion. They have reached H clear opi?
nion, by what means (if by any means)
political revolution can be stopped
midway and tho Democratic party
hindered from taking possession of
every department of the Government,
iu the elections of 187(1. Immediate
steps towards specie payments, not i
promises of which the execn'iun is
perpetually postponed, and a reform of
the tatiff tu the end of obtaining a
larger revenue by lower duties on
fewer articles. This is their ooticur-J
reut advice, aud exhibits the Prefei
dent's and Secretary's appreciation utj
last of the grout evils Irom which the,
country is Buttering, und their udmis
sion that those evils uro of legislative
origiu and admit of legislative remedy.
Add to tlies?.- the exorbitances and
usurpations of power on the part of
the Federal Government, und Gene?
ral Graut aud Secretary Bristow will
have discerned precisely * I he vulnera?
ble poiuts in the R-publican policy
upon winch the Democratic assault
has buflu concentrated and irresistible.

defenco of what is indefensible, to
frustrate furthor Democratio vio'orics
by themselves doing what despairing
people have elected the mxt Demo?
cratic Congress to do.

VlCKSPUUet, December -It id re?
ported, this morning, that the negroes
will renew the attack on tho city to?
day. The cit!2-;ns are all under arms,
und have, beeu largely reinforced from
the atljoining towns. Companies have
been sent to the ccnotry, well armed

vent lynching. Tho negro loss yester?
day is estimated nt about seventy. One
