.^asssrj?sr?^5.'" ? OEO. w. TggETT, Editor. Point ? Pleasant. West Va. THURSDAY, AI'RIL 15, 1375. " TUc Connecticut Election. ]n the recent election in Connect-, icut, the Democrats lave gained a! sweeping victory, electing their Gov-j crnor and completely reversing the State delegation to the lower House of Confess. This stood in the 43:d. Congress three Republicans to one. Democrat. Nov,' it is three Democrats | to one Repuhlican-a clear gam of; two Rut that it is a sweeping vie torv is not all to be considered. Tb< administration had put forth its every, energy towards carrying the State. Monevand orators were freely for warded, and this to such an extent that even the most enthusiastic; Democrats feared lest they would not k- able to hold their own, and had begun to talk about being satisfied with success, even if attended >wt. losses on the vote of last year. G rant had staked his all on this, a last des perate venture, for it was a plain and defiant challenge to the Democracy to meet him on the issue of his policy. His candidate for Governor was a man who had proclaimed to the coun try through the mouths of an hun dred cannon that he endorsed the President in loin, and his election would have been hailed as promi nent evidence that the tidal wave had been successfully arrested, and that, at heart, the people of the Ln ion were in favor of all the iniquit) that had been perpetrated. Rut what is the result? Last year, Governor Ingcrsol was elected by aj majority over both Republican and Prohibition candidates of only '2.(X>4; this vear his majority over all is placed at9,000, a victory so decisive; .is to crush out all hope "f Radical, success in 1*70, and to convince Pres ident Grant, that he and his party, have completely destroyed them selves by their revolutionary and; vindictive policy. And that his en tire prestige, together with all the. assistance he can expect from his SO,-, 000-office holders, and .powerful fam ily connections, will not be able to sive him and them from political death ami future obscurity.?Ex. The Importance of Party Organ ization. ' There never has been a time, in the history of our Government, savs the Cincinnati Ewpiircr, when it was so important for the Conservative Democratic party to have its organi zation perfect, as the present. In unity there is strength. The Repub lican party has, by its reckless course, its violation of the Constitution, anil its efforts to centralize all power in the Federal Government, brought the Republic to the very verge of de struction. This fact was so appar ent that the sovereign people, in the elections last fall, rose lip in their majesty and made a clean sweep, beating the Republicans in nearly every State in the Union. It was a glorious triumph for Constitutional liberty. That triumph, however, is worth nothing if the party that achieved it permits itself to become demoralized and divided by the machinations of the Radical leaders. It is an old saying, "There arc more ways of killing a dog than choking him to death on butter." This fact the Radical leaders understand, and they believe there are more ways to beat the Democrats than by simply out-numbering them. Their tactics will be to beat the Dem ocrats with Democratic votes. To be able to do this, they will select soft Democrats and i>lacc them at the head of their tickets, and, in this way divide and conquer. A true Democrat can never vote for a Dem ocrat who has accepted a nomination at the hands of the Radical party, for the moment he does that he is a Radical, or, what is infinitely worse, the tool of the Radicals. Any Demo crat who would run for office as the nominee of the Radical party is worse than Judas Iscariot. He is a traitor to all the principles upon which the liberties of the peoplearc based, and is lending himself (ignorantlv, per haps) to that party who are working to ouild up a centralized despotism, with a bounded aristocracy tocontvol and make the people hewers of wood, and drawers of water for them. There is a great contest now going on in this country between despotism on the one hand and liberty on the other. Grant and his henchmen ev idently intend, if thev can, to destroy our Government and to build up a centralized despotism on its ruins.? The progress they have made in ac complishing their purpose lias been very great. The Constitution, the great chart of liberty, has been vio lated time and again by these up starts in power. No one doubts but '?rant has been influenced in his "Official' acts by the monied power.? His veto of the bill to increase the volunu? of currency, when the entire . cuwmnce of the country was ruined v?.-. " for the wirntofCTirrencj-ta on, was conclusive that t* IkiimF holders and moneyed sharks to*; Grant by tke wrist It is this?*-"i eyed power the people must fight and, bring under subjection, or ^tito-. tional liberty, on this Unfan^J\i0 ; Ik; a thin- of the past- The order now is, all along the line, for Demo crats to stand by their- gbns, wdl neither give nor take .quarter. If the line is broken anywhere It maj . produce a general rout, and result in] i victory for the Radical destruct ?r. party in 187C. If so, then farewell to republican liberty on the American Continent, now and forever. - '?% In the Court of Claims, ?Washing ton, John Knotc sued for SI1,000, that being the proceeds of the sale of; his property in \fcest- "V irginia, con- j fiscated during the war for allege trcaspn and rebellion. He claimed] the Presidential pardon reinstated him in all his rights ofproj>erty,and consequently lie was entitled- to the above sum. Judge Loring deliv ered the opinion of the court adverse to the claim, as Congress expressly provides that no money shall In drawn from the treasury except by appropriation; consequently the President is positively excluded from any control of national property. The power vested in the President to pardon crimes does not authorize him to restore forfeited property, and the proclamation of December 2'2, 1S0S, under which the claimant was par doned, does not restore confiscated property. The petition was dismiss ed* The West Virginia Boundary. The Preston (West Virginia Her ald savs: Virginia, nearlv half a cen tury ago, issued patents for her lands up to a then recognized line as the western boundary of the State of Man-land. The patentees settled on their respective grants and have claimed to be citizensof \ irgimaand West Virginia ever since. IheUne above referred to ran from Lord 1' air fax's stone north to the Pennsylvania line. About the year 1X52Maryland set up a claim to all the territory then occupied by Virginia lying north of the south branch of the I otomae river and oust of a line from the noi th westcrn source of said river north to the Pennsylvania line. irginia, to satisfy Marvland and to vindicate her title to the territory she occupied, appointed the Hon. Chas. J. Faulk ner a commissioner to go to England and hunt up her muniments ot title. Mr. Faulkner found documents show in" that, at the instance of Lord Bal timore and Lord Fairfax, the King and Council had before the revolution appointed commissioners to find and ?settle the true boundaries of the land in dispute, and that the commission ers did ran and settle said boundaries, and that Fairfax's stone, at the head of the north branch of the Potomac river wa'S placed there bv said com missioners. About this time a large mound was thrown upon the 1 enn evlvania line, supposed to be in the same longitude of Fairfax,s stone. After the revolution a line was run and marked under the direction of a "eiitleman and citizen of Maryland bv the name of Deakins from Fair fax's stone north to the Pennsylvania line, which intersected said line a little west of the said mound. \ ir ginia. in her liberality, adopted the Deakins line and granted her lands up to that line, and Maryland made h?r land-grants conform to the same. .Just before the late rebellion \ irgin ia and Maryland appointed commis sioners to again run a line from Fair fax's stone north to the Pennsylvania line, and report to the Legislature o! said States, which latter line was run, and its intersection with Pennsyl vania was still west of the Deakins line. Whether the commissioners ever reported is not certainly known, but it is known that Virginia never acted on or concurred in said last line. Citizens of Maryland have been covering the old \ irgnna land grants. embracing the lands between the Deakins line and the last-made line with Maryland titles, and are driving our people off their lauds. This conflict of title cannot be prop erlv settled bv the courts nor by fire and sword?at least, so think some ! of our people who have had a taste of the consuming element. It might not injure the people of Preston if the whole county was ceded to Mary land: still we do not like to separate from our sister counties. If, how ever, the threatened movement of the return of the great Kanawha valley to the old State should be car ried out, had we not better all return and restore our old mother to her former greatness? Hard as this al ternative might be, still it would be better than to occupy a weak and de fenceless position, subject to be iniad ed and our rights trampled upon by our stronger and more avaricious neiglilior. At Brunswick, Tennessee, Tues day evening, Hubert Medlin, County Court Clerk, was shot and killed in his ollicc bv two brothers named Henry and fily Bond. The former was a lawyer and administrator of an estate, during the settlement of which some days since he and Medlin bad an altercation in regard to the clerk's fees, which resulted in the two brothers going to Medlin's oflice for satisfaction. It is reported that on entering the office Henry pro duced a pistol, when Medlin rose from his scat and exclaimed, l'I am unarmed!" Without reply Bond fired at him. Medlin closed with him and attempted to seize the pis tol, when Elv B.-mcl fired several shots at him, and he fell dead, having been shot eight times. Tlte Bonds surren dered themselves. [Corrajpon-leuo; to ihe Rcgater.] jBBEESBBI?I5PBESBYTEBl' Co-U-SMonn, April 9.1875. ' The Greenbrier Presbytery met at, CoaL-nioutli, April 7th, at "i P. M.,' and was opened with a sermon by Rev. J. II. Lewis, the retiring Moder- j at or. T welvc ministers anil about the same number of ciders wcreprcs-; ent. IIcv. S. R. Houston was elect-; ed Moderator. J. C. Brown and G.; V."-, Craig, temporary CTorks. THE SECOND DAY was taken up in the morning with routine business and the exaniina nation and reception of Rev. D. S. Sydenstricker who was received from the Presbytery of Arkansas. Mr. Sydenstricker accepts a call to Oak Grove Church, Pochahoutas county, and steps were taken for his installation. Presbytery took a recess to attend services held by Bishop \\ hittle, who preached a capital sermon. Rev. J. II.Leps, now in California was empowered to labor as an Evan gelist in that far-off part of our coun try. A church at Hamlin, Lincoln county, was reported as organized . with seventeen membcrc and ouc ru ling elder. Rev. W. E. Hill was appointed Chairman of the Committee on Sab bath Schools. Statistical reports from twenty ! nine churches were read and recciv 1 ed. I Rev. Edward Eells and Elder Sam ! uel Couch were confirmed as Coni ' missioners to the General Assembly i to convene in St. Louis in May.? j Rev. G. T. Lyle and Elder C. S. l'ey ; ton, Alternates. The next place of meeting was ' then taken up for consideration and it was appointed at Frankfort, on the 13th day of October at 12 M. TIIIKD DAY. The following reports were receiv ed: Sabbath schools, Susontation, Publication, Education, Standing Rules, and properly disposed of. Order of the day for 10i A. M. was hearing the reports on State of Re ligion, from all the churches. In this there was much to encourage and not a little of a discouraging na ture. Additions have been made to most all the churches in our bounds, and two new churches have been or Iganizcd during the year. The resignation of B. II. Sterrctt and F. E. Dryden ;is Elders of the Buffalo church, were returned to them with the statement that Prcs : bytery had no authority to accept i them. I The Moderator was appointed to prepare a suitable minute, tendering the sympatly of the Presbytery to Brother J. H. Lcpp, in liis affliction. A resolution was unanimouslv ad opted, approving the action of our Committee at Baltimorcon Fraternal Correspondence. The remarks of i' Minister* and Eldervhow verv clearly that whilst fraternal correi jjondence may be desirable, it is not to be purchased at the expense of principle, and further, that this Pres bytery in no way favors anything like organic union. There is now very little business before the Presbytery. To-morrow morning at 10, the conference on Home and Foreign Missions will be held, and Presbytery may adjourn at the morning session. The meeting has so fir been har monious and pleasant. The weather has been fine, t.'ie congregations large, and the preaching good. ?The people of this city have shown that they know how to entertain and no doubt the usual vote of thanks will be tendered with a heartv "ood will. In the reports on average contrib ution, Point Pleasant Church stands first. May this stir them up to do even better things than this. THE LAST DAY of Greenbrier Presbytery, was taken up mostly with the conference on Home and Foreign Missions. Ad dresses were made by S. K. Houston, D- D., M. L. Lacy, J. C. Parr, J. C. Brown, E. W. Eells, W. E. Hill and others. E\ cry body present seemed to enjov the conference, and one of the good results, was pledges from the church es whose delegates were present, for the amount suggested by the susten tation and evangelization Commit tees, which secures an appropriation from the Central Committee, to an important field in our bounds. After divine service at night, the Presbytery adjourned. Services on Sunday, were held in all the church es in the villages. The people turned out well all the time, and seemed to enjoy the Pres 'er.v: and the body enjoyed the kindness and hospitality of the citi zens, The complaint was, there were1 not enough Presbyters to go round, i and those present could not get round'' enough to satisfy their own wishes' >tnu the invitations of the people, j ur What (be Grange ba* Done! From a speech published in one of oar exchanges, we make the follow in? extract: "I has canned business to be con ducted on a wore economical basis, and consequently has cheapened all > goods bought forcash. It has brought producer and consumer nearer to-; gether. It has inaugurated in pub- j lie sentiment a revolution in favor of a cash system. It will take years to complete it. but that revolution: has commenced, and millions have already been saved to the people. It lias inspired tie whole agricultural world with a spirit of economy. It. has already begun to elevate farming as a profession, and has drawn farm ers nearer to each other, socially and for business purposes. It lias given impetus to intelligent farmingevery where. It has sown seeds that will: ri]>en into a rich harvest of prosper ity for the fanners, and consequent ly for all classes. It has inaugurated reformation that will not cease until virtue and honesty once more bear sway where ignorance and corrup tion hold high carnival. It has put three millions of fanners to thinking.' Are not these .achievements enough for so short* ti$k* . .. j Work on iIicKan:twl;:i. The Charleston Ontrirr publishes the following letter from Colonel Craighill, United States Engineers: lion. Frank Harford: " I Deaji Sue?I have received, to-day, vour letter of the 23d.

Virginia, This old State, the battleground of the sections, seems to be rising like "a giant refreshed with wine,'' and moving forward with renewed life and vigor. She is not only leading in the great work of education, but industry and enterprise are develop ing themselves throughout her ter ritory. The Tredegar works at Rich mond, have recently increased their works to such an extent, as to give employment to over (J00 hands in the manufacture of horse shoes. In many other localities, the people arc alive to their interests, and are moulding and directing all their energies to ward the accomplishment of grand and noble purposes. Even* well wisher of the country will unitedly respond, "So mote it he." Judge Emmons, of the U. S.
