i:UIL5UUIlG, I A. THURSDAY, .: : APRIL I, 1869. Foster and Oorode. Wheu the three return judges in the Con- greasional district composed vi the counties if Fayette, Westmoreland and Indiana, rat t at Groensburg after the last OctobVr election for the purpose of - counting -ilus i flicial vote and transmitting the proper re turn; to Hvrrisburg, two of he"judges, one from Fayette and the other from Westmore land county; eSBfd a certificate- declaring that Henry LV-Fuster had received a maj ority of forty-one voles over Juhn Covode. The other returu- judge, : representing 'Indiana county,' refused to sign the return, alleging that frauds ' Lad been committed , in the YoUDgstown election .district in Westmore land county and in the Dunbar election district in Fayette county, which, if correct ed, would change the result. This was an exhibition cf ignorance and impertinance,. which he was induced to display at the. in stigation of Covode himself, as a seeming ustification of John W. Geary's subsequent indefensible conduct when he issued his pro clamation, and which we have no doubt was perfectly understood between Geary and the Alligator." ' ' A return judge is purely" a ministerial i nicer' entrusted with the performance of certain well defined duties, which in this instance simply required that they should produce at Greer.bburg the official vote of j their respective counties. ." The return, judge j it- i i i ! from lnJiaua county usurped a dangerous! "-"""J 1 power and one wholly unknown to the law when he undertook to set upltia Own judg ment against the validity of the return from his own or any other county in the district. They .t least imparted truth on their face, and if any fraud had been pel pet rated in the election the" taw provides a full aud ample remedy for its discovery in a contest before a Committee of the House' of liepresenta tive.. John W. Geary has a mind eminently capacious of the low arts of the demagogue, and although it was his plain duty to recog nise the act of firo out of the three return judgC3 as conclusive in the promises, and to have proclaimed Gen. Foster elected, yet he evaded the responsibility and submitted the whole question to Congress. lie afterwards undertook in an extra ofiicial manner to intimate to the Clerk of the Ilouse, through a letter dignified and made more solemn by having the broad seal of the Commonwealth attached to it, that in his (Geary's) opinion Covr.de had been legally elected. This was a piece of unmitigated impudence, 6ueh as to other Governor has ever before attempt ed. He. even went farther,: and forwarded to the Clerk certain ex parte affidavits man ufactured in the interest' of Covode and sworn to by Teter S. Johns and other un. dtrstrappers cf honest John in Fayette coun ty. The case in the aspect in which we have stated it was referred to the Committee on Elections, consisting of seven radicals and tiro democrats, that pink of demagogues John Cersna being one of the seven honest members of the Committee. On la3t Thurs day Judge Woodward cffired a resolution referring to the Committee the report of the return judges, and instructing the Committee to include this return in their investigation of the case.. The object of this was to give the Committee a fair and full opportunity to decide on the prima facie right to the eat.. As that was the only question sub mitted to the Committee for its investiga tion, It -would seem to be right and proper that the paper referred to should be submit ted to it. And yet it will perhaps surprise honest republicars when they learn that their radical friends iu Congress, by a vote of 100 to 41, absolutely refased to let it be done. 'If the certificate of Gen. Foster's election, signed by two of the Otree return j judges, does not make out a clear prima facie i case in his favor, we ak in the name of ail law and justice what other evidence could do eo?; What remote chance of justice could Gen. Foster have with the door thus closed against the only evidence which, from the ery nature of the case, can sustain his claim? Simply none stall, for the Com mittee, by some trickery or fraud; has deci djd by a vote of Jive to four, two of the radi cal members voting with the democrats, to give the seat to Covode and thus force Oen. Foster to contest it. This report is not con clusive cf the question until it is adopted by the Ilouse. , Although that has not yet been done it co doubt will bo done, for no demo crat for the past six years was ever known to successfully contest his right to a scat in Congress, nor has any democrat whose seat was contested been able to retain it. Some years ago Gen. A. IlCoffroth, of Somerset, claimed Lis seat "in CongTess, just as Gen. Foster does now, upon the strength of cer tificate in his favor signed by a majority f ' tiie return judges, and the seat was awarded to Lim.. His competitor, Koontz, contested it and was finally admitted. . If this outrage is finally consummated, and if Gia. Foster ia deprived of his 6eat, to which we bfelieye he was. honestly and legally elected, he must not shriek from claiming his right by vigor- ously contesting it- He owes this much to himself as well as to the people of the dis trict who supported him " It is duo to them that the falsehoods and calumnies ottered publicly by John Covode on iho'fTobr'of Congress against, honest and repcchable communities in, that district should be cfam ned, down his slanderous throat.,' "Let justioe b done though the hcay ens should : fail.".:: . :: : . , , .

' Greenbank and Thayer, The first case in this State. of a contest in relation to the election of a "Judge learned in the law" has just bceu. determined by a Joint committee iu the legislature at Harris burg. It vcas the case of Greenbank aud Thayer, s At the . last October election in rnuadelphia lhos. Greenbank was the uem- ocratic and M. R.Thayer the republican can- . . - . . . 'didatc for Judge of tho District Court of that city. - The ofiicial return of tho election gave Greenbank C0.743 votes and Thayer C0,G28, making GrCcnbank's rnajirity 125. He was accordingly commissioned and took his scat on the Bench. Tha3er contested it on the re ,' , , . , , ground of fraud and claimed that he (Thayer) had been elected by a majority of 212 voles, while Greenbank claimed that if the fraud uleut votes polled for Thayer were excluded his (Grcenbank's) true majority would bo 243. These were the allegations of the re spective parties to the contest. It is fair to presume that each of these two gentlemen urfderstood the merits of his own side of the question. Each went into the investigation with certain specific cHarges pgainst hia op ponent ana undertook to prove their truth. Both, after full r.nJ mature examination, were compelled to admit that the contest had been a close one, and neither claimed to have , . , , - ooen eiecte oy more than ZoQ votes. 'Ihe committee, however, simplified the matter wonderfully, and astonished both the par ties, but especially Mr. Thayer. They threw out the entire vote in nine divisions of six wards.' In these nine divisions Greenback had received 3,251 votes and Thayer 1,357, Greenbank's majority beicj 1,894 and the I total vote polledbeing 4,008, very one of which was rejected by the committee. The conclusion at which tho committee arrived was that Thayer- knew nothing at all about his own case,-and that instead of havin re ccived a majority f 2l2, as be believed and claimed ' ne hadhis mnjority bad'assnmcd the magnificent and to him unexpected fig ure of 1,789. The report of the committee beins final and conclusive of the rights of the parties, M. It. Thayer takes ha seat on the bench and Thomas Greenbank take At seat in the bar. And thus it goes under the ty rannical and arbitrary rule of the "God and morality" faction. In view of this sweeping disfranchisement cf 8,251 democratic voters in nine entire di visions of six, wards, when the allegation simply was that a certain number of illegal votes had been polled therein, this question present3 "itself : Cau a democrat who has been elected to an office over which a radical legislative, Jbody. is. invested :witU absolute control hope to retain his seat if it should be contested?

Judain":' from what has taken place iu the past, aud from what may be ex pected in the future, we sometimes think that if the seat of the member cf Congress from Berks county was contested by some intense!- loyal man, his claim would be re cognized. It certainly would be if his ad mission would secure a two-third vote. -Time will yet set all things eveb. Tl&e X'irieetstU Amendment. The'negro suffrage amendment has passed bcth branches of the legislature by a strict party vote. So far. therefore, as that imma culate body Is concerned, this act of bold usurpation and violated faith is complete. We have so often expressed "our" 'views on this subject that it is entirely "unnecessary to repeat them. How admirably does the con duct of the democratic legislature of Ohio contrast with that of the radical legislatures of other States! Iu that State the democrats control both branches of the legislature, and might with perfect propriety and good faith refuse to ratify it, because at the time they were elected the question of negro suffrage was submitted to a vote of the people and was defeated by arge majority, although the radicals elected their candid tte for Gov ernor. Yet the democratic legislature of that State foregjos its unquestioned right, and postponed any definite action until the peo- pie next fail hhaU again pass upon the ques- tion. The radical legislatures of Tennessee and Minnesota both adjm-ned without ratifying it it cannot pass in Indiana, since all the democratic merubei3 of the legislature, who resigned in order to prevent its ratification, have been re-elected by their constituents, la addition to this, the States of Virginia, Alisiitsippi and Texas are not yet reconstruct ed,- and uo tiian cau tell wLeu or how ,they will be. So that the chances of the amend ment being ultimately adopted by three fourths of the S:ates are growing small by degrees and beautifully hss. It is'iiow certain that it will be made an issue in this State during the approaching campaign. The people are ready for it, nor can the result be doubtful. It is said by Uarrisburg correspondents of some of the radical papers that Morrow B. Lowry was especially jubilant over its . ratification by the Senate, and that iu the fullnes3 of his joy he rociferoualy shouted, "Selahl SelahJ" This was to be expected, as , Lowry prided was before the election however, and w hen the valiant Senator regarded discretion as the better part of political valor. Let him and Lowry, et id genus omnc. enjoy' their short lived triumph let them revel over broken promises and violated pledges tho eiid is not yet, aud both may live loDg enough to discover that this radical boon, bke tempt ing dead sea fruit, has burned to ashes on their lips.

' - The committee in the cont std election case of Thayer vs. Grcenbaak have reported in favor of the former by a vote of seven to six. This was nothing mere than was ex-, pected, as all a . radical has to do if he wants an idee is to make application, and there will either be a democrat thrown out or an additional office made for his accommodation. Mr. Greenbank "was returned at the last election with 125 of a majority. After the evidence was in it appeared he had .a clear majority of 219 .votes, having shown a large number of illegal votes cast for his oppo nent. Mr. Thayer being unable to show the requisite illegal votes for Mr. Greenbank, (not being as fortunate in his selection of witnesses as Mr. 13unn,) the Committee came to hia rescue and threw out whole election preciucts in the city of Philadelphia, aud then reported a majority of 17CJ votes for Mr. Thayer., If this is to staud as a precedent, and two thousand citizens of the city of Philadelphia are to be disfranchised, the sooner the election franchise is abolished the betu-r.

ST DIXIT, TH SCE1BK. ; CU4FTE8 I. 1. And it came to pass that the days for which Andrew the King-had been cbueea to rule over the people, were nearly accom plished. .': ' ' 2. And the people, choosing from among them elder, ent Chem to certain cities that they might ta.ke counsel together and name others to rule in bis stead. 3. And behold the Democrats chose ..lor. their leader Horatio, surnameil Seymour, a wise man. descreet, aud learned in the things of the Law. 4. And the Radicals chose to lead their hosts, one Ulysses, surnauied Grant. Now this man was a tanner of leather. ST. : "And he was also chief of the armies of the nation, and had led them against those of the South, whom they had overcome. . 6. And he was calied the Silent, because of his fear to speak (for he was loth to open his mouth, lest his tongue should betray the weakness of his mind ) 7. And when the time of election is near at hand, behold the merchants and money changers of the great cities did bring togeth er much treasure ; 8. And casting it down before the people they said : "Let your voices be written for the man of leather, for behold he is a man after our own heart. 9. With him shall we work the things we will with the people ; for ia not his will as a gobbet of wax, which may be shaped by the cunniDg hand? .10. He hath made to himself a name, which is written in the blood of thous ands: this will we will use to our purpose." 11. And behold, the people being blinded by the fame, and dazzled by the buttons and epaulets of Ulysses, did choose him for their King. ---- - 12. And the merchants, and nutmeg ped lers, and spinners of thread, and weavers of calico, and clock-makers, and the J man-women of the East, were much r joiced in that Ulysses had been made King, . - .13. And they made feasts and dinners, and led hiiu bout the country, even as the showman d th monkeys. Aud they strove much to make him speak to the people. 14. But Ulysses would not, for he knew tho weakness of bis own mind, an 1 feared lest be should be Called a fho!. . 15. And on the fourth day of the third month, in the year of the nation ninety three, a great multitude came together iu the Capital, that they miht see the tanner made King over them. 10. And many thousands were gathered together, Gospel tigers, and Heavenly hye nas, and Harlots, and Robber, and Pimps, and tax gatherers, and office seekers, great aud small. 17. And Ulysses, standing up before the people, swore, according to the Law, that he would obey the covenant of our Father?. 18. And he made a little speech to the multitude, and it was as the speech of u schoolboy ; as the babble of an echo. 19. Being full of vanity, and having in it nothing of the wisdom of the Kings who had gone before l im. 20. And many grumbling, said. "Is this ho whom we have choseu to rule over us ? 21. Behold he is buil-uecked, and not wite; swollen, but not great; he hath no strength in his loins! 22. He will be even as the ass, which goeth not under the cudgel, but is led by a bunch of thistle, or a maniple of hay." 23. But others said: "Nay, but we de light in him : he snortcth like unto the war- houso and is no ass. Hi. lie lovetn tue in tr.r and dpli:Tht.t Vi in the sweetness of him : he oo""' muketti him even as we are, his fellows." 23. And ' there were divided, and would not agree: " ' :i. 26. And behold early in the morning of the next day, Ulysses the Ivirg called to gether his servants aud said : 127. "Go ye up to the Senate of the na tion, and say to them who sit ihereia, . that I have chosen to myself as counsellors the men whose names 1 sent to them. 28. And say ye also to them, that I atone j am King, and there is cone other King but 1 r-i a " 23. And going up, they bore thither the names of those whom he had choseu, und made them knowu to the Senate. SO. And for the ministry of Stale, they read the name of Eiihu, who was of the land cf suckers. 31. New this man and bis kiusfo'-k, even from the least uuto the greatest, were leech es ; stickiug at all times to the purso of the people, even as ticks to a sheep's tail. 32. But he had also been the friend of Ulysses, and had done for him many things, that himself might be exalted. So. And for the ministry of the Treasury, they read tho name of Alexander, suruamod Spool-cotton, a seller of calico, and of mus lins, and of fine linen, and of silks aud pur ple cloths. 34. And for the ministry of the Sea did they read the name of Adolph, uumanied Borie, which being interpreted Is "a storm danco." And he was of the city of Paun. 85 And he had, aforetime, been a seller of crockery, and of plate, of delf, and uten sils for the dormitory. .30. And for the ministry of the land, they read the. name of Cox, and he was from the lanl of the Buckeyes. ''''. : .67. And on oue named !.lIoar. . coming from . the. E-u-t, did they lay the, mantle of Judge, that he might make plain to the King the things of the Law. 38. And this man loved the nigger, even as the apple of his eye, from the days of his youth upward. And his love was not growu cold. : - 39. And one. named Cresswell, -was called to- be master of the post-horses, and of. the couriers, and of such as btar the missives of tho people.-: , ; . , .. -. . , 40. Thia man Jad been a lover of re bellion, ior the sunshine of its success, but forsook it when the shadows had fallen in its way. : - ... ' ' 41. And behold tho Senate, willing . to serve the King, and greedy for the gifts and fat things of his hand, did confirm his choice. 42. But mauy said : "Out of th fool, folly ; and from emptiness cometh the foul wind." And they, grinding their . teeth, condemned the judgement of him' whom they had worshipped. - , ' 43, And others said : "He thinketh to ride ' over ; us'- in hia :pride.
