Raftsman's Journal. . J. BOW, ITO AMD rROPKIKT'iR. CLEARFIELD, PA., OCT. 27, 1869. ThkResclt. la another column we pub lish the official figures of the recent Pcnu tylvania election. Gov Geary's majority is 4,S0G, and that of Judfc'e Williams 8,701. The vote this year is 70,692 less than it was last year for Auditor General. The Itejis try Lav, no doubt, prevented the Democrats from polling, as usual, some IO.OjO or 2'1,. 00 fraudulent voles for their candidates. This fact, in connection with the sniallnc.s of the vote cast on the I2h iiist., warrant? uk in saying : Had anything near a full vote been polled thia year our candidates would have received from 23,000 to 30,000 of a majority. The result then, notwithstand ing our meagre majority, i.s of a most grat ifying and encouragiug character, and one over which the Republicans of Pennsylva nia, and of the whole country, have great cause for rejoicing. How it Work.v The IVndktonian pa pcmiill policy of finance is in full force iu HaytL The mills are all at work and yold advanced to $1,8K) paper for $1 pold. In consequence dry goods and provisions were at fabulous prices at the latest advices the price of a barrei'of pork being $05,000, a box of smoked herrings $-550, a bos of eoap $2, 600, etc Clearly Peud:eton should cini grate thither at once. Salnavc evidently needs his perviee.''. A similar state of affairs would exit in this country had the Pendie tonian Democracy been successful at the last Presidential cleetion,and at the more recent State elections. From the condition of mon ey matters in Hayti, the people of the Uni ted States can now see how great a financial disaster they escaped by the election of Gen. Grant, and the retention in power of the Republican party. Goni Lip. On Friday last, the Tennes see Legislature put a quietus upon Andy Johnson, by electing Henry Cooper as Uni ted States Senator from that State. Al though the Legislature is largely Democrat ic it rejected the '"Old Man OListinate" by a majority of four. It Li almost a pity that ho was not elected to the U. S. Senate, wber he would have done no harm, except to indict upon that body his old long wiud ed speech about the Coustitutinn, while his absence from Tennessee would have afforded that distracted State a blessed season of re pobe. The defeat of Andy Johnson is the severest blow the Democracy ret-rived" this fall, excepting, per Imps, that of Repudia tion Pendleton, for Governor of Ohio. Right. It is announced, says the N. Y . Tribvn, that General Guttei field is either to resign or be removed, in consequence of alleged speculations in iro'J, while holding the office of U.S. Treas'r in N. Y. Vt'e have already said that there should be no disposi tion for one moment to uphold this officer, if the charges against hiui could be sustain ed. Wo niay now add that, if the Depart ment has any rcasou to believe cither that lie was in any way concerned with the oper ations of Messrs. Fisk & Gould, or that he was in any way responsible for the silly and damaging "defense" of himself which has been put forth in some of the newspapers, it should take prompt measures to put its Interest here in wiser hands. Deatti of an Ex Governor. Ex Gov ernor Joseph Ritncr died at the residence of Lis son, in Carlisle, on Saturday, October loth. He had attained the ripe age of ninety years. During hi prime he was one of Pennsylvania's active pjlititions. He filled the Gubernatorial chair of the State from 1S35 to 1S3S, and it was during his administration that the excitement incident to the anti-Mawiiie movement prevailed. Governor Ritner was never credited with brilliancy of parts, but he possessed earnest ness of conviction and integrity of purpose. The last twenty five years of his life were jajed in retiraey. The Financial Paosrcer. The steadily continued reduction of the national debt, for the present and at least five ensuing luouth-t.is anticipated atJWashitigton. With peace at home and abroad, and with a rea sonable degree oi popular prosperity, our national debt, at the close of the present AiuiicNuuiun, March 4, I S73, is not like ly to exceed J l.M0,lK000 a reluction of more than oua-fourth of is immense volume during one single term of a Republican President DisArroiNTEr. It is said that Mr. Pack er is sadly disappointed by the returns frt m the anthracite counties. He Iones 2,574 votes in Luzerne and 315 in Schuylkill, while he gains 47 vots in Carbon, the home of his family, 9'J in Lycoming and 12S in Le high a net loss of 2,645 to .the "Pride of the Valley." These returns were a aiore unpleasant damper than the souse his boat men gave him in the canal some years ago. Tns Attorney Generalship. The Hon. Fred. Carroll Rrews'er has been ten dered the position of Attorney General of the Bute by Gov. Geary. It is understood that the offer will be accepted. Judge Brewster i ha!f borther to the present At torney General, and a man cf elevation of character aud fiirst rate ability. Moee IIelp. Vermont has ratified the ifteenth Amendment. The vote was unan imous in the Senate, with twelve negatives in the House.. The great measure by every new expression of the people gains string! h and its consuniation is little less than abso lutely certain. The New Virginia Senators. John 1 Lewis, Esq. and Judge John W Johnston, recently chosen by the Virginia Legislature to represent that State i the Senate of the United States, are said to be gentlemen of considerable ability, and to have been true to the old flag throughout the whole war of the rebellion. They both can conscietiously fake the required oath. Mr. Lewis Is a native of Lewiston, a small town iu Rockingham county, and a lawyer by profession. He was never known as a politician, but was an uncompromising Whig, although residing in the very midst of what was then knowu as the "tenth le gion" of Virginia Democracy. Ha was a member of the Constitutional Convention of 1S61, but voted against and refused to sign the ordinance of Secession, and was a stanch Union man throughout the rebellion. He is greatly respected for uprightness, integri ty aud independence of character. He is a son of the late Gen. 3. II. Lewis, and has devoted himself principally to agriculture. Judije Johnston, who has been elected as the culleague of Col. Lewis, is a native of Washington coun'y, Va., and a lawyer by profession. Except in his new office of judge, he has only been onee in public life, which was as a member of the Virginia Sen ate in 1847 8, from the Tazewell district. He was then one of the twenty three who refused logo into caucus with the Demo cratic party, and who united with the Whigs in electing Mr. Hunter aud afterwards Mr. Mason to the Senate of the Linked States over Gov. Smith and Gov. McDowell. He is a nephew of Gen. Joseph E. Johnston, who figured prominently in the Southern army during the recent war. He was al ways a devoted friend of the Union, and so remained to the end of the rebellion. A Democratic Ignns Fatuu3. The Democratic "gains," of which their papers have so much to gay every year, and which are always to elect,but nsverrfo elect their ticket, are the most deluding Will-o'-the-wisps we have ever heard of. "There is a curve," says the Pittsburg Dispatch, "known to the students of conie sections, the peculiarity of which is that although it continually approaches nearer and nearer to a given straight line, it uever reaches it,and never would reach it, if contiuued to the confines of space. The "caius" of the De mocracy are very much like this curve. For the last eight or nine years they have been continually and everywhere increasing, but somehow they fail to reach the line of suo cess, and for aught we can see, the elections oflast week, which show the greatest "gain9M of all, according to Democratic arithmeti cians, give them no more hope of really at taining success than any of the others over which their roosters have flapped their wings in vaiu. Notwithstanding their gaining, the Republicans still keep a little ahead, and show no signs of giving out. The worst of it all is that these gains merely encourage the Democracy to persevere in their delu sive struggle. Rut for them they would long ago have given up and saved their streu-'.Ii nd wind till by rest aud the adop tion of new and souuder principles they might win in some future contest. But like the "fire fly lamp," in the old Dismal Swamp ballad, these deceiving "gains" are leading the poor Democracy deeper and deeper into the morasses of prejudice, until at last it must perish in the slimy ooze." Unprecedented Coolness. At Mead ville, on F riday before the election, while Gov. John W. Geary was addressing a large mass meeting of Repubiicans,and just as he was in the middle of a well-rounded sentence, the platform on which be,together with the officers of the meeting stood, suddenly gave way, precipitating all to the groud. The Governor, as he was going aown, continued speaking, losing not a word, and he strug gled out from the broken timbers still talk ing as though nothing had happened to dis turb bis equilibrium, affording an exhibi tion of thatenoluessandsolf-possesfcion which combined to make him the great hero and soldier. Scarcely one man out of ten thous and could, under similar circumstances. have controlled his nerves so effectually and re tained such .presence of mind, aud it is as much lrom these little circumstances as from greater ones that we all draw our esti mates of a uiau'scharacter and qualities. Conti stlt Election Case. The Sen atorial scat of Mr. Scull, from the Somerset district, will be contested by his late oppo nent, Mr. Findlay. The former claims his election by a majority of 17, while the friends of the latter insi.it that he was elected by 21 majority. Our friend Scull, should employ Mr. Swoope, a counsel in his behalf the Utter having some experience in such cases. Speaking of the Secretary of War, the Quincv ( 111. ) Whig bays : "The sensation al nonene from Dos Moines about General Belknap's political unsoundness is all bosh, as we personally know. The whole etOry is a fabrication of ignorance or malice. Gen. Belknap is not an active partisan, but he is a good Republican, and a very able man." Rascality Unmasked. It has been satisfactorily ascertained that the wires freighted with the government dispatches directing the sale of gold, during the event ful conspiracy days, were tapped in or near the city of New York, and its contents made known to the gamblers in advance of its de livery to Gen. ButterBeld. California Election. Incomplete re turns from the interior coun'ies of Califor nia indicate that b th the vacancies on the Supreme Bench have been filled by Demo crats. The vote wis very lieht, and the re sult is in accordance with expectatiens. It is stated that the large amount of traf fic drawn to the Pacific Railroad has so ta ken away business from the Panama route as to render it impobable that the latter line can ever again enjoy prosperity. This is a change which might have been foreseen. Fiscal. The Secretary of the Treasury, from the 1st of May to the 30th of Septem ber, purchased $52,691,000 of Five-twenty bonds. The saving of interest on these purchases amounts to over two millions per an urn. Pennsylvania Election, 1869Complete. 1883. 1869. 25 63 O "3 33 "9 5 - e 2. I - sr a" E .2 & ' 1 P I COUNTIES.

This eminent Catholic priest arrived in New Yoik last week, and the papers of that city are making the most out of bis presence there; bat he is unusually and sensibly re served, and np to this time little has been drawn from him by the numerous interview ers who have pestered him with important questions. Father Ilyacinthe haa not re nounced the Roman Catholic religion, but he is not au extremist or a bigot: disagrees with some of the doginvj of the church, and favors, to some extent, liberty of concience in religious matters. What stand he may feel obliged to take hereafter, should ex communication follow the heresy he k charg ed with, can only be conjectured; but as revolutions, whether in religious or civil af fairs, "never go backward," we may reason ably anticipate on the part of the Caiinelite .Monk a step in advance of Lis present posi tion, before many years, or even mouths elapse, if his life should be continued &o long. lie is credited in one of the New York papers with the following account of the rupture between hiinself and his eccle siastical Superior: "My views are embodisd in a letter I wrote to the Superior of my convent, which was published at the time. The Catholic Church is divided into two parties, the Ul tramontane, or stand still party, and the party ot progress in both religious and polit ical thought. To the latter wing Monsieur Monialauibert is now attached, though he was formerly on the othor side. Its ideas were also held by the Abbe Lacordaire, pre vious to his decease. I bad been in the habit of leaving every Sunday the Carmelite Convent, in which I was a monk, to preach in the church of Notre Dame do Paris. In my sermons, 1 leaned towards liberty of con cience in religious matters, and attacked the f-pirit which, in the past days gave birth to the Inquisitiou. I considered protestants to be Christians. They had been baptized as such, and their doctrines were Christian. The Superior of my convent objected to this freedom and perpetually took me to task. This aunoyed me. I felt niyi?e!f perpt-tualiy seized by the throat and gagged. The an ger of uiy Superior was still further aroused by my attendeoce at the Peace Congress in Paris, where I delivered an address. The harm of advocating peace, I could not see, but as universal peace was in contradistinc tion to the past practice of Christendom, probably that was the reason of my repre hension. Wearied, at last, by perpetual and unreasonable restraint, I threw aiJe my robe, anc? quitted the couvent. My Su perior wrote me to retorn within ten days or consider myself virtually excommunica ted, although the Pope's anathemas might not yet have been promulgated. 1 replied by taking immediate passage for America," The Great Tobacco Marts. Louis vife is reviewing the business of the past year, and finds that of the estimated crop grown in Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana and Illinois, amounting to 121,000 hogsheads, Louir. ville received about 40,000 hogsheads, worth at least $4,100,000. She has thirty tobacco factories employing a capital of $1, 0lK),000: and the businsss increasing. Rich mond, Va., during the last twelvemonths, has manufactured over 12,0u0.UOO pounds of chewing tobacco.and about 800,000 pounds of smoking tobacco, paying into the internal revenue thereon nearly $4,000,000 as duty. Think of the enormous amount of puffing and chewing done in consuming this enor inous quantity of vegetable product. Deerycd Compliment. The senti ment in the annexed paragraph, from an exchange, meets our hearty approval : "The Ilarrisburg Telegraph has done noble service during the campaign, just end ed. It has been edited with great vigor, and if it will now keep a sharp lookout for the different schemes that will be organ ized to get the cash out of the State Treas urer, in one way or another, it will put the Republican party nnder a double debt of gratitude. Economy must now be the word of the National.State and city authorities." News Epitome. The late authentic news as to the wherea bouts of Dr. Livingstoae, the indomitable explorer, says that he is not only alive and well, bat in prosecuting bis geographical researches has discovered that one of the sources of the Nile, emptying into the great lake V ictoria Tyanza, rises some teu degrees south of the Equator. This.if correct, makes the Nile the longest river in the world. A fair idea of the long line of the Nile may be formed from the fact that tho distance be tween its last reported source and its delta along the Mediterranean is equal to the dis tance from Lima, in Peru, to the city of New York, or from the City of Mexico a way up to Mount St. Elias, the end of the backbone of this continent, in Alaska. A Washington dispatch states that Attor ney General Hoar, in conversation with a friend a lew days ago, stated that he was not a candidate for the Supremo Bench, and would not take it if offered him. It turns out that Edwin M. Stanton is the most prominent candidate for any vacancy that it may be necesssary to fill in the Supreme Court, and the President, it is said, b not avers to his appointment. A very large number of letters recommending hiui have been received from the most prominent law yers e-f the country. It may be stated, how ever, iu justice to Mr. Stautou, thai he has made no perscal elTort or application for the position, but he is strongly urged by his friends and emiuent members of the bar. X Female suffrage for municipal officers in the boroughs and cities of Great Britain was continued by a law of the last Parliament About 300 female voters are now on the register of municipal voters at Lincoln. Eng land. At Stamford the number of female municipal voters for tbeensuing year will be 130. At East Retford.out of 514 munici pal voters for 1869-70, sixty will be women. At Norwich the municipal rejister for ISC') 70 will comprise upwards of 10.000 names. and about 1,300 of the voters will be women. At Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham the number of female voters ruus into the thousands. Gen. Sherman calmed the excited fee-l ings of a Committee of Washingtonians, the other day by piving them his opinion the capital will never be moved from Washing ton to the Mississippi or any other valley. He thinks it would take one hundred years to get a bill for the removal through the House of Representatives, one huudred years to get one through the Senate, and even after the passage of the bill by both Houses, one huudred aud one years would be Ppent in discussing the most eligible point in the Mississippi Valley to which the capi tal could be removed, The petrified giant exhumed in Onondaga county, New York, the other day proves to he nothing bnt a colossal statue, carved from a species of stratified sulphate of lime known as Onondaga gypsum. The features are of the European cast, aud the sculpture is so- like any remains of aboriginal plastic art ex tant, llenoe it may be surmised that the figure was 'executed by the Jeauits, who had missionary stations in that part of the country two hundred years ago. If they did not make it, who did? It is rumored that Wall street is again plotting to engineer Secretary Boutwell out of the Treasury. The particular device pro posed to this end is to be another oaairuoth operation in gold. Those engineers have been already onee hoisted by their own pe tard, and will show more couraga than wis dom if they try it again. The seeond ex plosion is mysteriously stated to be fixed for about the end of November.

Acouple of gay youths, forced to spend a couple of days in a country town near Cin cinnati, dropped iu at a church where a fu neral was in progress, to "see who they were going to plant."

The ei-lebrated Foacanlt experiment to proove the rotation of the earth was tried Tuesday, in the rotunda of the Ohio State House, by Mr. Mendenhall, of the oity high school.

The Rothschilds of Tsris have been swin dled out of $20,000 by a former, who turns out to be aclerk in a Vienna banking house, and who, after purloining $5,000 from the bank, forged the signature of his employers to a letter advising the Rothschilds of the draft upon them, which he cashed immedi ately after his arrival at Paris. Advices from Nassau state that the steam er Lillian, which sailed with an expedition ary force from Florida for Cuba, had been captured by the British gunboat Lapwing, and taken into Nassua where she was releas ed by the authorities under the ruling of the Attorney General that she could not legally beheld. Three consecutive decisions in the Massa chusetts Courts in the same case seem to make the law pretty clear, that if the owner of a horse with the glanders peraiit him to range so as to infect other horses, the owuer of the diseased horse is liable for the dam age that may ensue. English papers say the wheat crop there, and also the potato crop.have been the heav iest known in this generation.

On Friday last, Oct, 22d, a severe shock from an earthquake oc curred at Newhuryport, Mass., shaking the doors and windows and tuacy movable things in the houses. The people generally were awakened by the commotion. An old brick mansion house, built seventy years go, and having the thick massive walls common to those days, was shaken from the roof to the cellar, rattling the doors and windows, and creating general alarm among the occupants. The people in their beds were very sensible of a vibrating uiovemeut below them. At Waldsborro, Maine, it said the shock was very severe, and that the earth opened eight or ten foet wide causing great alarm in the village. At St. John's N. B., the shock was strong. Houses were shaken violently. Everybody was awakened from their slumbers, and many rushed from their homes in alarm, but no material damage was dne. At St. Andrew's the shock was more severe, throw ing down chimneys and cracking walls of houses. Similar shocks were felt at Halifax. Spain. The bill suspending civil rights in Spain passed the Cortes on the night of October 5th, when the Republican minority led by Castclar abandoned the Congress in a body. Prim made an appeal to them to stay, half entreating, half menacing. Ife urged them to meet together and consider the propriety of remaining at their post ; but unfortunately he accompanied his words with some intimations they, in their excited state, oould not brook such as that if they retired he should consider they had joined the enemy, and he should meet iron with iron, force with force. . Castelar rose and thanked him for his remark, which, he said, contained two things a counsel and a threat. If there had only been the coun sel they might have pansedbefor it, "but before the threat, neverr" Thus saying, he and his companions left the building. France. Special interest again attaches to the news from France. The Emperor has given notice that he will be prepared for any emergency growing out of the pro posed irregular meeting of the Corps Legis lat if, an the 26th inst., and the troops are gathering in Paris to enable him to keep hisjpromise to "insure respect for the law and the maintenance of tranquility." There is no little significance in the caution to "all good citizens to be on their guard a gaiiiht imprudent curiosity." This appears to be the latest mode of cautioning citizens to beware how they kick against the pricks of Imperialism as practiced in France. 5Sew dvrrti.snufittjj.
