The few jHTSons in this city, (our

jrroniids to change their minds. They
have watched closely , this wretched
partisan f negro love, and negro suf

' servatives have noticed with what
alacrity this modern Falstaff has
"pricked"' his Slenders and his Shal-
lows, and watched his pomp'as he gath
eredhis shirtiesscoatless recruits to do
the dirty work of such dirty dogs as
Tom Fletcher, and the batch of villains
that surronuded him.
In all his meanness, in all his unfair
ness, Coolcy was ably seconded by five
of his Konrd, three disagreeing and
doing something to disannul the be
hests of their superior, but with little
enett. Howard, radical candidate for
the legislature, and a detainer ot God'e
word; Frank Winkler, the'shoe leather
man, Cal'.ison, Hill and Earl seconded,
in almost everv instance, anv and all
moves f the supervisor, while Sat-
tertield, although with him in most of
his acts, disagreed in the action in res
peet to the mandamus, probably for
fear of the damages that might follow,
Mr. Kesterson of Clay, and Mr. Patter
son of Middieton, did not co-operate
with the Supervisor and the majority
of the Board, so fully as Coolcy desired,
but more fully than the- should have
done. Thev could not do so, as honest
men, and the public will remember
' .. . ;
them for it.
QCAI.IFIED voters.
Early in the doings of this grand
inquisition, with power to punish by
guillotine or auto da ' fef a rule was
made that all those'persons objected
to, and whose names were not reached,
should be returned in tho rejected list.
Bat, we understand, that this piece of
villainy was, at the close, reversed ; so
that these unfortunates will go up as
qualified voters.
The following lawyers appeared for
the people, as, we understand, without
compensation, save in one instance :
Judge John F. Uyland, Amos Green,
John E. Ryland, and Tilton Davis.
And to these gentlemen our people are
much indebted for the valuable services
rendered by them. Judge "Walker, and
Mr. Beattie, both negro whining dis
nnionists, appeared for the Board.
The treatment of the bar, by Coolcy,
from the very opening, was dictatori
al, tyrannical, and insulting, he ruling
in the offset that no attorney should
be admitted inside the bar. But he
was taught better manners; and was
frccd to give way to the right, much
a it hnrt his FalstaflRan taste. Sev
eral times, he ordered Mr. Amos Green,
against whom this little man seemed
to have especial dislike, to sit down, or
leave the room, and once or twice or
dered the sheriff to take charge of him,
and as often was he "coolly told he
should not go, that he appeared there
as an attorney for the people, had
rights, and Avas not to be mobbed into
intimidation or driven out by him, that
his clients might thereby suffer.
Mr. Green and Judge By land read
to the Supervisor the law upon tho
subject, quoted the bill of rights adop
ted by the radical Convention, and en
dorsed by the radical legislature, that
all persons accused had the right to be
heard by attorney, and for the time
hc "caved in," but Sneaked off, like a
whipped spaniel, to the telegraph office,
and dispatched Wingate, another ne
gro stranger, to know if he should
! tolerate counsel in a case onhj of dis
frimchisement I That hound answered,
it was claimed, it was optionary with
him lr. Coolcy! He then male a
rnling that the bar should retire out
side ; but Mr. Green suggested it would
be better to leave Jndge Bylaiid to" at
tend the cases, and Mr. Davis and John
K. Byland to retain their scats inside.
This arrangement effected, Mr. Green
withdrew from the Board. But Coolcy,
with all his impudence, with all his
bravado, stilicto at side, could not
move that gentleman, nor deter him
from doing his duty. - He is a man of
sense, a lawyer and gentleman, and a
man of loo much nerve for Cooley.
On Thursday evening, Judge Uyland
called up the eases- of those persons
w ho had been relieved of disability by
the decree of the circuit court, and
proceeded to state the case, and read
the law on the subject. Cooley imme

no sort of use. Judgn Walker, a stran
ger here, tld Oooley the' were not
soldiers in the Cniteii States service,
and at his nod, the Board decided to
lisregard the action of the circuit
court, the highest tribunal in the State,
save one. Ho that the circuit court,
even operating under radical law, is
just no where at all, when Oooley, and
Hill, and Howard, ami Winkler, the
foreign dealer in leather,) and Callison,
and Karl, come to make up a decision,
on a point of law.
AVe were particularly amnsed at an
other little incident, in the way of deal
ing out law, en Friday night. The
name of W. A. Chanslor was called,
but it was r.ot written W. A. Chanslor,
but some other name. Judgo Uyland
objected that this name was not that
of Chanslor, that it was some one else,
and that as Mr. Chanslor had not hail
the legal two days' notice, it was not
fair to proceed with the trial. Just
then a little fellow claiming to be a
lawyer, done up in some jewelry, and a
large amount of hair, Beatie, we be

Board could amend the nam? ami vott'rr!
The law says parties' shall have two
days' notice. The Board was then
within live hours of completing its
duties, and still this gentleman who had
not rwad Blackstone, or the elementery
works on law, thought it legitimate
for the Board to arm-.itd t'.- noUci .' Such

Mr. Lewis Hagood, ho was particularly
outspoken on this subject. The tcsti-

Mr. Hagood was sworn, an 1 among
other things, said hc had always
sympathized with the Southern people.
At this Cooley, who ha I all along mani
fested not only hot haste in his dirty
work, bat exhibited on several occasions
a degree of temper that was disgrace
ful to him, actually laughed, and broke
in, "I always knew Mr. Hagood was
an honest man." We doubt if Mr.
Hagood could return the compliment.
On his statement that he had sympa
thized, and no act proved against him,
this Avise Board disfranchised him.
But look at the testimony in the caso
of W. 11. Tebbs. He, it was proven,
had sympathized. It was also proven
that he had committed the act of afford
ing aid and comfort to bushwhackers,
by taking to them tobacco, whisky,
and other articles; still Mr. Tebbs, be
cause he was a radical, Avas passed.

Pontius Pilate Cooley. did not ap
point his registrars inside of the law.
He did not tile his oath with the clerk
of the circuit court, according to law.
The county court did not appoint the
voting districts, with their boundaries,
in duo time, nor did either power pay
' ,
any respect to law or usage, or the con
venience of the people. They cared
nothing for cither the law or tho peo
ple. Cooley intimated as much. The
notices were illegal. The law requires
two days' notice at the county seat,
and at the A-oting place. It Avas not
given. Tho notices were posted np
here Saturday night, Oct. 20, and the
trials set for Tuesday morning. In
law Sunday docs not count. So one
day was all the notice given, except
what the Express and ourselves gave
thc people.
The brief authority of this modern
.Escnlapius, withont patients, was
sufficiently exhibited in his overbear
ing conduct toward tho people. He
Avas not only dictatorial, but stormy
and insulting, several times ordering
the sheriff to take Mr. Green in charge,
and one time, in expelling from the
room, Mr. Benick, forventuring to sug
gest a Avitness. . .
We print simultaneously Avith this,
much of the evidence elicited in the
examination of the cases. If there
was a single radical rejected, we do not
know it,though the proof in thc cases of
Tebbs, Adamson and Henry FlynLwas
much Aveightier than in an hundred
cases in which conservatives wcie pro
ven to have sympathized only. A
careful reading of these facts, will the
better enable the public to decide, give
them a fuller idea if any be needed-
of the extent of the partisan character
of this Board, its utter desregard for
the right, its want of fairness, ami its
desire to disfranchise men, the latchcts
of whose shoes it was unworthy to un
loose. "

The result is anything but what
Cooky desired it should le. He la
bored hard, and tried all he could to
control the action of the Board, ho as
to exclude from the list of qualified vo
ters names enough to give the county
to the disunionists and traitors, but did
not succeed, as it is believed by those
who should know.
MAxn.iMrs. -Late
Satnrday evening, a mandamus,
requiring the Board to certify those
persous who had Itecn relieved by the
circuit court' up as legal A'oters, was
served upon the Board. Cooley advis
ed that it be put in their pockets and
left there ! As yet we have not learned
its fate. Kesterson, and perhaps Pat
terson and Satterfield signified a will
ingness to certify those -otes.
The Board held nightly sessions, and
notwithstanding, did not reach greatly
over or under half the names objected
to. On Friday night, Cooley took tho
authorithy to place one of his partisans
at the gate leading into the bar of tho
room, Avith orders, what we know not.
Soon after getting to work Amos
Green, Esq., in passing through this
gate, was aecostsd by the keeper, and
told he could not pass in ; that he had
orders to admit none. Mr. Green
asked Mr. A damson if he had issued
such order. He replied he had not, and
Mr. Green walked in, the attendant
threaening to shoot him. Ho attempt
ed to explain to Pontius Pilate Falstaff
that his life had been threatened ; but
that commander of a regiment Avith but
one shirt between them, ordered him,
in boisterous and insulting language,
" to sit down, sir ; or leave the room."
Mr. Green remaining standing, Falstaff
ordered the sheriff to remove him, but
the sheriff was in no Lurry to do so, and
did not attennt it. Judge Uyland in
terposed, and his better councils pre
vailed. Cooley Avas stormy. Some
villian had put "villanous lime in his
sacic, or had brewed it with pallet
sperm," and he fumed and ranted ; but
that teas all !
All honor is due those persons who
so pronptly attended the Hoard, to see
that they Avere not defrauded by it.
They were here in numbers, and many
of them spent the entire four days
waiting the issue, and, no doubt, would
have spent still more time if necessary.
They had also, many of them, spent
two, three, and even four days, in an
effort to register; and now it only re
mains for them to manifest the same
degree of perseverant determination to
A-ote, to insure the election of conser
vative men. Let no one fail to vote,
whether on the legal or illegal line of
the count. Fight the disunionists
and traitors to the last with paper

It seems to bo pretty Avell settled, if
we take telegraphic dispatches for au
thority, that our government is about
arranging satisfactorily the Mexican
imbroglio, by recognizing fully the
Liberal go-ernment of Ji arkz. It is
said that the government undertakes
to sec 200,000,000 paid to France, and
that France withdraws all troops and
all sympathy from Mexico and Maxi

is to be fully agreed upon and enforced.

Horrible Episode of War.
The London Morning Herald's mili
tary correspondent gives the following
"A farmer living in a hamlet near
Possnitz, had a wife and two children,
and such was thc woman's terror of the
Prussians, when she heard they were
coming, that her husband tosatisfy her
placed her in an under ground cellar,
with her two little ones, and built up
tho door way leaving some food inside.
The Prnssians entered the place, and
among others obliged this poor man to
accompany them, with his horse and
cart for a day's journey, as they said.
But t he man was brought on f rom place
to place, and at last, when he was suf
ferred to return and reached his home,
several days had elapsed. On the way
back he began to calculate how little
food had been left with tho Avito and
children, and horror stricken at the
dreadful thought that their cries might
not be heard, his hair is said to Lave
turned white on his homeward journey.
His fears were but two real. He tore
down his masonry, searched for those
so dear to him, but 011I3' found three
lifeless bodies, half devoured by rats,
lieason left him at this dreadful sight,
and hc is now in a hospital, a lunatic.

Icfahility of tue Catliolic Canrch.
Archbishop McCloskey gave a very
clear explanation of this dogma in his
address before the Roman Catholic
Council now in session at Baltimore.
He said :
"And first, let its understand Avhat is
precisely meant by this infalliability.
Do we mean that the church receives
a direct and miraculous inspiration
from Heaven ; that a new revelation
Las l-eeii or is at any time imparted to
her ; that she has the right to alter or
amend, too add to or take from the
original deposit intrusted to her?
Not at all. Much less do avc confound
infallibility Avith incapability, or assume
that exemption from error carries
with it or implies an exemption from
sin. But Avhat we do mean and wliat
we do assert is, that the church, in her
office of teacher, in the fulfillment of
the commission given her, has a divine
guaranty that sLe shall not -err,
or lead others into error, and that to
this end she is perpetually assisted,
protected and guided by the Holy
Ghost. This infallibility, then, resides
in the teachings of the church the
ecrlrxia docenx that is to say, in the
bo.ly of her pastors, her bishops wheth
er assembled in general council or dis
persed throughout the world, united
with her chief bishop, which is the
head. It is not claimed that an indi
vidual bishop is infalliable, but the
whole body of bishops ; it is not claim
ed that a provincial council such, for
instance, as this, is infallible, but an
ecnmeniel or general council represents
the whole church, with the Holy Fath
er at its head. This is the Catholic
teaching and Mief-
Of course the members of the pres
ent rump Congress should all be re
turned. They baA-e such weighty
claims upon the people, having done so
much for them, especially upon the
soldiers ami the friends of deceased
soldiers. Let us sec what these deser
