to run candidates. Tbcre a tbe old

been put down with tbe shot gun
and if Independent candidates can
be prevenlea from running for office j

secured to tbe Democracy. There

Tin: Ieni"crai are in a condition
of urea' distrchSover their illegitimate
und rebi-Hious (.flVpring, the National
party. They have been trying both
tp Lin and to bribe it back into the
parental fold, but it obstinately de
clines to coiue. In Iowa, for exam
ple, tLe Chairman of tbe "National
S ate Committee'' has published a
proclamation, statiug that tbe Demo
crats are too late w'tb their overtures,
and thai each party must now stand
upon its own bottom. The word
"Nationals" is a nightmare which
keeps Democrats in close Districts
awake of nightd.
T secure the next National House
of Representatives the Republicans
Lave only to hold what tbey have
got, and gain eight Congressional
Districts. We ought to gain two of
ibis number in Pennsylvania, viz:
Schuylkill, where Keilly (Dem.) bad
1 majority, and tbe Franklin dis
trict where Sienger (Dem.) waselect
ed by C9 majority. In Ohio we are
almost certain of gaining three dis
tricts which were undoubtedly carried
by fraud in I8TG; then add to those
tbe districts from which Republicans
bonestly elected, have had their scats
stolen by tbe present Democratic
House, and it will be sure that the
tasit of regaining the House is by no
means a difficult one.
Isn't it about time that the Repub
licans of this Congressional district
were takiog soundings? Tbe re
nomination of General Campbell ap
pears to be conceded, but bis re-election
is not. On a square, stand up
fight be can carry the district against
bny Democrat in it, but in our judg
ment battle will Lot thus bo offered
l.im. The so called "National party"
proposes to put Congressional candi
dates in the Geld, and tbe General
must look out for a flanking fire. It
is thought that his former majority
of oiO can be overcome in this way,
and it will be iound the Democratic
nomination will not go a begging.
Wc are not badly scared, but :tt tbe
mine time our Republican friends
may as well keep their eyes open, as
to their surroundings.
Ik an Alabama contested election
case for a seat in the House of Rep
resentatives, in which Jere Harralson,
a negro, wa ousted, and a Rebel
eneral pat io his place, a paper was
read ln-fore the Committee signed by
Harralson, in which be acknowledged
that in a publr speech be bad made
statement that was utterly false,
and that he did it to prevent the
Democrats from voting for Shelley.
The Chairman asked Harralson
. why be signed that paper. Harral
son replied : "You would have sign
ed it. You see it was eleven o'clock
t night, and I was in Gen. Shelley's
room. He Lad two pistols, and bis
Vputy Sheriff bad two more, and if
you ever did see a scared black man,
I was one. You know white folks

Although the evidence shows that
bull-doring and intimidation bad full
sway, the indications are that Shelley
ill retain Lis seat.
Gloveb, Le of the investigating
turn of mind, the Lead and front of
Democratic smelling committees, has
succeeded, undesirably, and most uu--xpected'y
to Lim, in catching
another Democratic rascal.
While nosing aronnd to unearth
something to injure Lis Republican
opponents, Lis committee Las come
into possession of proof that at least
ten thousand dollars of the thirty-two
thousand expended during the trip of
Morrison's Iarestifjaling Committee
to Louisiana, during tbe Presidential
contest, went into pockets not enti
tled to it. Tbe money was expend
ed by Major S. K. Donavin, of Ohio,
the then Deputy Sergcait-at-Arms,
nd Colonel Polk, bis assistant, after
wards the Door-keeper of the House.
Donavin bad full charge in the dis
tribution of the f 32,'iim placed in bis
Lanas by J do. Thompson, Sergeant-t-Arms
of tLe House. The affair
creates much excitement among tbe
Democrats, and proof as to tbe ir
regularity is said to be overwhelming,
Mr. Glover is authority for the state
ment that at least ten tltfusaud dol
lars was not expended, kit in a crook
ed manner went into :'ue pockets ot
eeruin Democrats. It is charged
that Polk and DoLavia can tell what
became of this money, and they will
be required to testify n carding it.

The N. Y. Tribune has made an
exhaustive examination, prepared and
published a full list of the private
claims for compensation which have
been introduced for tbe South during
this session of Congress.
The list covers some four columns
in nonpareil type, and includes near
ly one thousand separate bills whose
total claims aggregate over ten mil
lions of dollars. When to this are
added the public claims of cotton tax,
tobacco, captured property, and army
supplies, tbe total demand of the
South upon tbe Treasury foots up an
aggregate of which the lowest esti
mate is over f 200,000,000, and
which tbe careful estimate of Judge
Hartley places at $300,000,000. And
this tbe South asks us to pay her for
damages incurred in a war of rebel
lion which she herself forced upon
When these Southern claims were
talked of in 1870, and warnings given
tbat such atrocious demands would
surely be niadeyiB soon as the Demo
crats Ehould come into power, tic re
were not a few in tbe North who

their mistake. Tbfi Democrats are
not yet in power, as they Loped to
be, but the cupidity of their Southern
brethren could no longer be restrain

by the 4th of next March. Tbey
have not the Presidency, but assert
tbat tbe Presidential assent to their
claims enters into ttie policy of "Con
ciliation," and was foreshadowed in
the inaugural address. Should they
retain the House, therefore, in tie
next Congress, (tbe Senate being
then Democratic also) there will re
main nothing in the way cf their
"getting even" with the North for
the very little portion which they
have to bear of our war debt. And
in order that our depleted Treasury
may have tbe wherewithal to supply
this Southern plunder, they cut down

It is no longer possible, even for
those 60 incrednlous during tbe cam
paign ot 1S7C, to avoid perceiving
tbe imminence of this dauger. There
is but ona means of prevention in onr
hands. The Senate is, for tbe pres
ent lost; the Presidency Las proffid
itself a feeble reliance ; we must res
cue tbe Hou of Representatives from
Democratic control.
This is our only safeguard ; and
this we can certainly do if we brae
ourselves for the contest. All differ
ences of opinion oa the policy of tbe
National Administration must be
laid aside, and we must make tbe
fight not for or against the President,
but -for the Republican party.
When yon want a blundering
politician, sure to "put his foot in it,'
go to Ohio, and tbe first fellow you
stumble over is your man. The lat
ter day Ohio poiakian is a wonder
ful creation, importurable, pig-headed,
and profoundly sagacious, Le is a
law unto himself, and embodies in his
intellect all the wisdom of the na

Lim and all that is outside his orbit is
vacuum, mere unknown and uninhab

Cixcixxati, April 17. An inter
esting case is now pending in tLe
United States Court, an old black
woman suing for $15,000 damages a
man wbo many years ago kidnapped
and sold Ler into slavery.
Her name ia Henrietta Wood, six
feet tall, of powerful frame, black as
nigbt, and over sixty years of age.
She was born a slave in Boone coun
ty, Ky., and after changing hands
several times was brought to Cincin
nati by ber owner and given Ler
freedom. WLile working as a serv
ant at tLe boarding bouse of Mrs.
Rebecca Boyd in Cincinnati, she was
one evening decoyed ny Mrs. ioyu
over to Covington, on tbo Kentucky
side of tbe river, and delivered into
tbe bands of three men Zi-b. Ward,
Frank Rues and Willoughby Scott
Mrs. Boyd, it is said, received $300
for tbe transaction.
Henrietta was driven next day by
Rues and Scott to Florence, and
thence by slave traders to Lexington,
and there put in a "nigger pen," kept
by N lck Roberts. 1 be son of a bo
tel keeper at Florence interested him
self in ber behalf, which caused some
commotion among tbe traders, and
resulted in Henrietta's being placed
in jail at Lexington, and kept for a
year. At the expiration of this time
Zeb. Ward took ber to Frankfort,
where he bad charge of tbe peniten
tiary, and she remained a short time
in bis family. She was then sent
back to Lexington, placed in the tra
ding yard, tent to Mississippi, and
sold to a wealthy old cotton planter
named Gerard Brandon for $l,0:'i0.
She remained fifteen years ou the
plantation, nntil B.-andou, at tbe
breaking out of the war, with 500
blacks, fled to Texas for safety. At
the close of tbe war Brandon return
ed to Mississippi, and promised Hen
rietta tbat if she would serve him
three years longer be would give Ler
Ler freedom. The contract was ful
filled by both parties, and w ith a
small sum of money, which she had
managed to save, she came to Cin
cinnati, accompanied by Ler only
son, who was with ber in tbe coort
room yesterday. Tbe time of ber
kidnapping was in the year 1353,
and she was absent from Cincinnati
from that tiipe about twenty years,
and returned here old and crippled.
She sues Xeb. Ward for vain? o.f
time and for damages in the sum of
$15,000. At the time of the alleged
kidnapping be was Sheriff of Kenton
coqnty, and is now of Little Iyock,
Arkansas. It was intended to enter
suit against Ward in the State of
Kentucky, and tbe late Harvey Mey
ers, fitq , of Covington, was to nave

was subsequently begun jn thp Su

New York., April 17. A special
to the Herald from Richmond stairs
tbat tbe barbarous lynching of an un
fortunate colored woman named Char
lotta Harris, who was accused of be
ing the instigator of a barn burning,
bad a fitting sequel yesterday in tbe
acquittal of the boy Jim Ergenbright,
wbo was imprisoned at the time for
setting fire to the barn. Tbe poor
woman was pursned, captured,
brought before a magistrate and
committed for trial. Tbat night a
party of ruffians, ith blackened fa
ces, rushed into the room in wbicb
the woman was confined, took ber
from tbe guard, and after dragging
ber about a mile bung ber in a most
bornble manner to a black jack sap
ling. Her body remained suspended
from tbe Gth of March until noon on
tbe 9th. when it was finally cut dow n
and interred. Tbe Governor issued
a proclamation for tbe arrest of tbe
arrest of the murderers, but owing to
tbe existing secrecy maintained by
tbe lynchers and tbe public sympa
thy for tbem none of them have been
arrested. It is now fully established
in tbe acquittal of tbe boy Jim Lr
genbright, who was accused for
burning tbe barn and of being jnsti
gated by Cbarlotta Harris, that tbe
v. oman was equally guiltless. Tbe
question now is, will tbeie be anr
punishment for tbe crime ? Will tbe
murderers be brought to justice?
Uockingbam county, where tbe lynch
ing occurred, ia tbo centre of the re
adjustment or repudiation sentiment
in ibe State and the borne of Dr.
Moffett, the inventor of tbe bell
punch register, who is also a leading
re adjuster.

sweeping down tbe Valley of the
Delaware a mile below Cochecton on
Weducsday afternoon the engineer
saw a little girl walking on the track
He was just rounding a curve.. The
locomotive shrieked, but within two
seconds tbe child was overtaken and
the train passed tbe spot where she
bad stood. ' Ibe engineer looked be
nina me rear car, expecting to see
tbe mangled body. But the track
was clear. He stepped upon the
guards of tbe locomotive, and saw
t;e child plastered against the cow
catcher. She was senseless. He
approached her with great care, and
succeeded iu rescuing her as she was
about to roll to the ground. Tbe
train was stopped and backed up to
tne girl s parents. I bey were poor
people liv'ng in a tbanty on tbe line
of the road. Tbe girl was about 11
years old. fcte was slightly cut
about the face, bu; escaped without
further injury. Tbe passengers were
delayed ten minutes. When they
left, the child was smiling in tbe lap

Tbe Salt Lake correspondent of tte
New York Tribune says : The mat
ter of settling the estate of the late
Brigham Young has got into tLe
courts as I predicted some three
months ago. Tbe will directs tLe
executors to tarn over to tbe owners
so ch property nominally belonging
to the estate as sball be found to be
held in trust for other persons. Tbe
Church bas Lad tbe books examined
by experts, and finds itself entitled to
nine or ten bundred tboosand dolUis
out of tbe fBtate. Now come Er
nest and Alpbeus, sons of Brigham
by brevet wives, and ask Judge Sha
fer, of the district court, to grant an
oi dT restraining the executors from
deeding any property out of the es
tate to tbe Church, in recognition or
payment of such claims until tbey
shall have been properly proved io
the Probate Court Judge Shaffer
granted a temporary order on the ex
ecutors, and set a day for a bearing
of tbe application in full. Whether
tie beirs intend to contest tbe claim,
even if proved in tbe Probate Court,
I do not know. If they do, they
will per be pa retain their grasp on
Brigham's ill-gotten gains, for the
Cburcb not being incorporated the
Territorial Act incorporating it hav
ing ben repealed by Congress can
not sue. 1 1 is also forbidden, by the
anti-polygamy act of 18G2, to bold
more tban $50,000 of reaj property.
It would be strange if, with this ad
vantage, tbe beirs should let a mil
lion slip through their fingers, unless
obliged to. Tbe Mormon "religion"
goes a long way toward making a
fool of a muo, but not quite so far as
tbat, I think, particularly witb tbe.
Young family.

Philadelphia, April 13. A seri
ous and from its cause a very unusu
al accident occurred in this city to
day. A young lady, residing at No.
1,313 Wood street, Miss Eflie De
Costa, while walking about ber room,
stepped upon a parlor match, wbicb
ignited, setting ber underclothing on
fire. She did not hear tbe explosion,
and the flames curling around ber
limbs gave ber the first intimation of
her peril. Her screams for Lelp
brought to ber assistance Miss Hat
tie Green, wLo resided in tLe same
bouse. In attempting to smother
the flames ber own clothing took fire.
Others in the bouse coming to the
rescue the fire was extinguished, but
not before tbey were both seriously
burned. Tbe physicians of the
Pennsylvania Ilogpital. to which in
stitution tbey were removed, pro
nounced their injuries of a fatal char
acter, and at two o'clock this after
noon Miss Qreen died io dreadful
agony; and it is highly probable tbat
Miss De Costa will not live till morn
