The sentence of Generll Briscoe is pro

allowances due, and is sentenced to
three ver.rs imprisonment. Sentence ap
proved by the Fresideut, but imprisonment
remitted on account of previous good ton

The Alabama Election.
The result of the recent Alabama elec
tion for Governor, State Legislature and
Members of Congress, as indicated by the
returns so far received, tells the same
story as that of all previous elections un
der the reconstruction experiment. The
most ultra rebel ticket in the field is suc
cessful. There were three candidates be
fore the people for Governor Bulger,
Smith and Patton, nil violent rebels
enough, in all conscience but Kulger, the
most ultra of them all, iselected. Freeman,
who lost a leg in the rebel service, is re
turned to Congress by an overwhelming
mnjoritv, and the radical rebel ticket has
been triumphant throughout the entire
central and southern portion of the State.
The nuiet of the election was only broken
by huzzas fir Stonewall Jackson.
This election constitutes another of the
thousand proofs that the fxperiinent
which President Johnson has attempted is
rendered unsucces.fnl bv the folly and
madness of the Southern rebel.. The
"rent mnnnanimity and forbearance shown
bv the l'resiuent has boon met by defi
ance, contempt and disobedience on the
part of the rebels. Tho South is as
haughty and rebellious as ever, and comes
back into tho Union, having forgotten
that she was ever in rebellion, as deter-
mined as ever to rule or ruin. "We
lieve that President Johnson is beginning
to perceive this, and that the Southern
leaders who have proven themselves, un
worthy of immediate restoration to power
will no longer find themselves basking in
the sunshine of Presidential favor.
Commissioner Newton's Agricultural
Eoport, for October, furnishes an encour
aging exhibit of the yield of cereals
throughout the country. The wheat crop
did not suffer so much from wet weather
as was feared, so that the deficit in quan
tity and quality will not prove to be one
half as large as the August report pre
dicted. Of wheat, rye, barley and oats
together, there were raised in 1863, 385,-
355,584 bushels, in 1864, 367,891,040, and
during the past year, 404,710,315 bushels,
an increase since 18C4 of 36,828,275
The yield of hay is more than five mil
lions of tarns larger than last year. The
corn crop is the largest ever raised in the
Assuming these estimates to be true
there is reason to hope that there may be

The Ecpublicans of Sangamon county,
Illinois, carried the election in that county
about 200 majority, being a gain of 500.
The Union majorities in Chicago, and

The Blacks Saved the Union!

soldier is braver than the white." Plain

How to Clean a Well.
The Daily Acto Era, Atlanta, Georgia,
tells this story nt the expense of a Trovort
Marshal there :
,:A gentleman in this city, whom wo
will call Mack for short, had a wall pretty
much filled up with rubbish and trash of
different kinds, which he wanted cleaned
out. He spoke to a freedman about the
job, and in a very confidential manner in
timated that there was a treasure hid in
that well he was anxious to exhume. He
mposed profound secresy upon his sable
--lT- Vm nffin iiM.nli nf annthn
one of his hue who couTcf he trusted, ine
upshot of the matter was that about one
hundred necroes know that an iron safe
belonging to the Express Company, and
which contained an invaluable amount ot
gold, had been precipitated into this well
when the city was evacuated, the anmr
was speedily brought to the ears of the
Provost Marshal, (not the present one,
however, for the thing of which we write
occurred some time ago,) and Mack,on go
ing to see about his well one mnrning.found
it guarded by a strong provost-guard, who
forbid any one coming on the premises.
.Mack protested against anr such proceed-
ing.and persisted that everything on that lot
in the well and out of it, was his individual
property. The Provost Marshal gave him
an official wink, and intimated that 'all
was right.' Mack thought if it was not it
would he in the end.
"A strong posse of freedmen was sent
down into the well to work. Bucketful
after bucketful of rubbish and mud was
drawn out. But no treasure as yet made
its appearance. Occasionally the officer
of the guard went down on a prospecting
tour In punching about with bis bayonet
he hit upon something that bad the true
metallic sound. They had the treasure
now sure. Again tho negroes went to
work, and after laboring some hours suc
ceeded in bringing out the top of an old
ten pinto stovo. A last the firm bottom of
tho well was reached, but no iron safe.
Mack said he thought the safe was about
ton feet further down. Whatever may
have been the court martial's opinion on
the subject, be concluded he had not time
to prosecute the search further, and with
drew his forces, leaving Mack in posses
sion of a thoroughly cleansed well, and at
liberty to bunt up the safe if he wanted to.
Mack didn't want to."

and as soon as we have learned all we
can we will give the public the bene

cers m command should be careful as to
the character of the men who act as
sentinels, as, from our present knowledge,
the Fenians calculate on great things
first, front rebel soldiers in her Majesty's
sorviee, and a smash on the banks will put
them, they think, in posse>op of exten
sive funds wherewithal to carry on their
plans. Now, this' is nothing more than
Mr. Perreault bints at, and should not be
treated as mere rumors. Let those who
treat.them as such, bear the responsibility.
We are aim informed that there are six
hundred Fenians in Toronto, u armed to
the teeth," each man having a revolrer and
a pike, and very many a rife, waitinp for
the word of command to imbrue their
hands in the blood of Protestants.
And now let lis direct attention to one
or fwo points j and, first of all, we accuse
the government of indifference to this
conspiracy. Ample proof is available by
them of hundreds now in Canada being
engaged In this plot, and of being 'armed
with weapons per se intended for no other
purpose than that of butchering human
beings, and yet no steps are taken. Mr.
Michael Murphy can go with impunity
and take Jjart in Fenian conventions, and
other Fenians can boast in our streets of
being snch open and avowed enemies to
the yueen and constitntion, and there is
no redress. A member of Parliament
can stand on the threshold of a Romish
chnrch in Canada and declare his sympa

ly they intend taking Canada during the
presenrjwinter, and still the government
is inactive. Is it because some of its mem
ber are said to fraternise with the Fenians t
Is it possible that the Canadian Premier
and the President of tho Council can wink
at these things and in sincerity tell us they
prefer British connection ? "VVe shall ue.
