CliEARFIELD, PA.. OCT. 23, 1867.
The Official Beturna.
Elsewhere we publish the official vote in
Pannavlvani. on October 8th. 1867, with
the vote for Governor in 1S66. By refer
ence to the table, it will be ecen that the
Republican vote cast this year is 40,450 less
than that of last year, and the Democratic
vote falls short 22,350, making an aggregate
lvu f fi sno on the vote of last year. This
proves what we said last week, that the de
feat of Judge Williams was owing to the
greater apathy existing in the Republican
ranks, and not the result of changes from
our party to that of the Democratic for
the opposition party has only increased its
vote in three counties in the State, to wit
In Philadelphia, 3,258 ; in Huntingdon, 19 :
and in Forest, 54 net, on account of the an
nexing of several townships of Venango
county thereto within the year. ; And hence,
had a full Republican and Democratic vote
been polled in the State, we would still have
elected our Supreme Judge by a majority
of 10,000 to 12,000. We commend' this
statement of facts to the Bpecial attention of
the etay-at-home Republicans, in the hope
that they may fully consider and digest it,
and decide for themselves how far each one
is individually responsible for the defoat of
Judge Williams and the principles of the
great National party that saved the Union
from being destroyed by rebels and traitors
and their aiders and abettors the so-called
Not Ovkr. In 3Iaryland and Missouri,
as well as in the secret councils of the Ohio
Democracy, the rebellion is not yet consid
ered over. Mr. M'Clure, M. C. from Mis
souri, communieates to the St. Louis Demo
crat a copy of a letter addressed by a prom
inent ex-rebel of that State to another who
has had enough of it, which states that "the
time is close at hand when we will have al
our past troubles to contend with again, but
it would be on a different scale to' some ex
tent." And, better proof than all. General
Shelby has received a private letter from
General F. P. Blair, warning him "to be in
readiness, that war is undoubtedly to be and
is near at hand."
The Civil Rights Bill. In another
column we publish the decision of Chie
Justice Chase, at Baltimore, on the 16th of
October, on the petition of a colored "ap
prentice" girl to be discharged from restraint.
Under the apprentice system, it seems, the
girl was as much restrained ef her liberty as
she had been previous to gaining her freedom
from slavery. The Chief Justice decides
that, under the Civil Rights Bill, colored
persons are citizens of the United States the
same as whites, and no citizen can be held
in involuntary servitude, except in punish
ment of crime.
'The beauties of Civil and Religious lib
erty are before us."" Republican.

Deiflocracy rebelled to destroy the Union and

tion, or previous to the Democratic rebel

One Vote. The importance of one vote
was shown in Jackson county, Ohio, at the
recent election. The Democratic and Re
publican candidates for treasurer each re
ceived 1,840 votes. To decide the question
lots were drawn, and as luck all rcund ap
peared to have been in favor of the opposi
tion, the Republican lost,

tion and courage have been called in requi
sition for their defense. 1 heir location on
Ijinrls under the protection of the United
States can alone prevent their continued hos
tility, and so secure them from certain and
speedy destruction. It is hoped, from what
has already been effected, that this end will
ultimately be attained by the Commission.
Should it be so, Gen. Sherman and the
other members of the Commission will have
accomplished a result most desirable, not
only as a humane office to the Indians, but
also as a saving of vast expense to the Uni
Election Fkauds in Philadelphia.
Intelligence has been received from Phila
delphia, stating that the three Republicans
who were defeated for county officers, have
agreed to join issue and contest the election
in the Second and Fourth wards of that
city. It is said that nearly two thousand il
legal votes were polled, and in the Sixteenth
ward a large number of rebel refugees, tem
porarily colonized there, were allowed to
vote after the inspector and judge had been
beaten from the polling booth. If these
things be proved, Judge Williams will be
awarded the place on the Supreme Bench
for which he was nominated.
The Yellow Fever. The terrible rav
ages of the yellow fever at New Orleans and
Galveston emphasize the providential fact
that during four years of war that frightful
scourge was hardly felt along the gulf coast
and in the great towns. Had it appeared
with its olden virulence, thousands of Union
soldiers would have been its victims. On
the 8th the deaths were fifty, on the 9th
sixty-four, and on the 10th fifty-six. It
seems to have returned to its former haunts
with the return of the rebels.
Financial Stringency; The financial
indications in New York, Philadelphia and
some of the other principal cities are of ex
treme stringency. It is the opinion of some
of the wisest that while a general crash need
not be expected, the time is not far off when
the weak timbers in the financial structure
will give way. Prudence is the prevailing
idea in the business world. Several dry
goods failures are reported in Philadelphia
in the last few days.
Riot in Baltimore. On the evening of
October 1 6th, a riot occurred in Baltimore,
while a regiment of colored troops were pa
rading near the corner of Franklin and How
ard streets. Some twelve or fifteen shots
were fired, aud Charles A Ellermeyer, a
white boy, was instantly killed. The cause
of the riot is unknown. The timely arrival
of a large police force prevented further dis

Th rwtitioner in this case seeks relief
from restraint and detention by Philemon T.
Hainbletou. of Talbot county, in Maryland,
in alleged contravention of the constitution
and laws of the United States. The facts,
as they appear from the return made by Mr.
llambleton to tne Uourt, and oy nis veroai
Kt.ifpnir nt made in Court and admitted as
partof the return, are substantially as follows:
The petitioner, Elizabeth Turuer, a young
person of color, and her mother, were, prior
to the adoption of the Maryland constitution
lf i64. slaves of the respondent. The
constitution went into operation Joveniber
1st, 1864, and prohibited slavery. Almost
immediately thereafter many of the freed
people of Talbot county were collected to
gether under some local autnoriiy, ine na-.
ture of which does not clearly appear, and
the young persons were bound as apprenti
ces, usually, u not always, to ineir late
Among others Elizabeth, the petitioner,
was apprenticed to iianioieton oy an inden
ture dated November 3d, two days after the
new constitution went into operation. Upon
comparing the terms of this indenture,which
is claimed to have been executed under tne
law of fl'aryland relating to negro apprenti
ces, witn tnose reouirea oy me iaw vi ma
ryland in indentures tor white persons, tne
variance is mamtcst.
The petitioner under this indenture is not
entitled to anv education a white appren
tice must be taught reading, writing and
arithmetic. The petitioner is liable to be
assigned and transferred at the will of the
master to anv person in the same county
the white apprentice is not thus liable. The
authority of" the master over the petitioner
is described in the law as a property and in
terest ; no such description is applied to
authority over a white apprentice.
It is unnecessary to mention other partic
ulars. Such is the case, and I regret that I
have been obliged to consider it without the
benefit of any argument in support of the
claim of the respondent to the writ; but
have considered it with care, and an earnest
desire to reach right conclusions, ror the
present. I shall restrict mj'selt to a brief
statement, of these conclusions, without go
ing into the grounds of them, lhe time
does not allow more. The following propo
sitions, then, seem to me to be sound law,
and they decide the case :
First lhe first clause of the thirteenth
amendment of the Constitution of the Uni
ted States interdicts slavery und involuntary
servitude, except as a punishment tor crime,
and establishes freedom astheconstitutiona
right of all persons in the United States.
Second lhe alleged apprenticeship in
the present case is involuntary servitude.
within the meaning of these words in. the
Third If this were otherwise, the inden
ture set forth in the return does notoontain
important provisions for the security and
benefit of the apprentice, which are requir
ed by the laws of Maryland in indentures o
white apprentices, and is, therefore, in con
travention of that clause of the first section
of the Civil Rights Law, enacted by Con
gress on April 9th, 1866.
Fourtb This law havimr been enacted
under the second clause of the thirteenth
amendment, in the enforcement of the first
clause of the amendment is constitutional
and applies to all conditions prohibited by it
whether originating in transactions before
or since its enactment.
Fifth-Colored persons.equally with whites
are citizens of the United States.
The petitioner must be discharged from
restraint by the respondent.
Fort- Pillow Massaccre. General N
B. Forest's card in which he denies that he
was cuiltv of the atrocities charged upon
him at Fort Pillow, has been the means of
bringing forth a statement from a federal of
ficer who was one of his victims, and who
shows conclusively that all that was charged
against rorest is true. 1 his omcer is nam
ed Mac J. Learning. He was at the time
of the massacre the Adjutant of the 13th
West Tennessee cavalry, and as such the
medium through which all the coiresnon
dence between Forest and the commander
of the fort, Majoc Bratford, took place
Mr. Learning says that in this correspon
dence, published by the Committee upon
the Conduct of the War, the following sen
tence, written by l'orrest, was omitted
"If this demand (of surrender) is not com
plied with you must take the consequences.
It was not complied with, and Mr. Leamin
says that in consequence, three-fourths of
the four hundred and hity men composing
the garrison were killed alter the surrender.
Mr. Learning was shot after he surrendered
and he saw several who were murdered by
the Rebels after the tort was in possession
of the latter.

The appearance of a large amount of well
exe.uted counterfeit bonds nas occasioned
no small degree of anxiety in financial cir
cles. Heavy losses have been incured by
the acceutance of these spurious bonds, and
a feeling of uncertainty and distrust has
spread in the coniiiiuuity. In consequence
of this there is a spontaneous rising of in
dignation against the unknown perpetrators
of the fraud, both because of the positive
loss inflicted, and because of the disturbance
of confidence in the transaction of financial
business anions honest men.
But it this spontaneous sense of justice is
arrayed against the counterfeiter who dis
turba business confidence and depreciates
the Government securities, why should it
not be equally aroused against reckless po
litical partisans, who, wantonly or for ends
as selfish as those of the counterfeiter, en
deavor to destroy nublic confidence in those
securities and to depreciate their real value,
by advocating modes of payment which are
in fact no payment, or by proposing new
conditions of contract involving loss and
damage to those who bought the bonds in
good faith ? On the score of results, the
counterfeiter does less damage than the par
tisan. Un the score of intentions, they are
alike, in prosecuting their schemes for their
own gain, and to the inevitable loss of other

What a Rebel Paper Thinks. The
Mobile Times, a paper which daily gives
vent to the bitterest tirades against the Rad
icals, commenting on the result of the late
elections says :
In Ohio, where the Republican ticket is
defeated only by a few thousand votes, the
negro-suffrage question falls before more than
eighty thousand. It is the voice of eighty
thousand Radicals, added to that of a far
larger number of Democrats, which yells in
fury to the negro of the South : "You shall
not rule this land nay, nor even participate
in ruling it.
Is ot so the South. More confident in the
task of preparing for a brighter future, the
masses they so long and so carefully nursed
np to civilization, they feel no such animos-
ity, ana it the mtamous acts ot the regis
trars had not disfranchised the whites and

surprise, but without anser, on his slave

Gen. Sherman's Position. The Wash
ington correspondent of the Boston Advertis
er says: ihere is no longer any doubt
whatever but that the President wanted
Gen. Sherman to assume the duties of the
war office, and that Gen. Sherman was found
utterly unwilling to take any position that
would place him even in apparent antago
nism to Gen. Grant, and would not eo into
the War Department at all, except on the

General is found to be much more in politi
cal sympathy with Gen. Grant than many
persons suppose him to be. and the Presi

used against Gen. Grant to further the
White House designs. Tt is alleged in mil
