Raftsman's JmtnraL I. J. SOW.BDITOB ADPROPr.ISTO. CLEARFIELD, PA., APRIL 27, 1870 Times change, and mea n'vW then. A niong the orators at the colored men's cele bration of the Fifteenth Amend mer.t at Ann Arbor, Michigan, was ex-Governor Alpfceus Fetch, one of the oldest, ablest, and best Democrats Michigan has ever known. Robert G. Harper, Ei-, one of the edi tors of the Gettysburg Star and Sentinel, died at his residence on April 18th, in the 72d year of his age. Mr. II. was one of the oldest editors in the State having edi ted the Sentinel for a period of 53 years. In reference 1 1 the ch rcs brouf. ht against O. O. Howard, of the Freeduien's Bureau, by Hon. Fernando Wood, the Chicago Post wittily observes : "Fernando Wood accuses O. O. Howard of stealing. Now, we don't believe O. O. did steal, but we do believe Fernando Wood." The Philadelphia Press saya that when policemen take to maltreating peaceable citizens, as two of them did a few days since, they are about low enoturli down in the scale of brutality to meet the congratulations of the Democracy. A-hein ! that's pretty se vere on the Democracy. The Savannah RepuLlican thinks it"some what remarkable" that no Southern man is named by either party in connection with the nomination for the next Presidency,and it enters its emphatic protest against the "slight" so far as the Democrats and Con servatives are concerned in it. Fishing and politics are appreciated by the enfranchised negroes. The Nashville Banner the -other day asked an old negro, who was fishing in the river, "What luck ?" He replied : "De fish is like de Democrats arter us niggers' vote. Dey wants all de bait, but won't hang on de hook." A quaint, but truthful illustration. The N. Y. World succumbs at last, and virtuslly pledges the acquiescence of the Democratic party to the Fifteenth Amend ment. It makes this point : The "Constitu tion is practically what the Supreme Court construes it to be ; and considering the life tenure of the judges, there is no great en couragement for further agitation of the question.'' One Daniel Pratt is urged by many Ala bama papers as the Democratic candidate for Governor of that State. Is he a certain "Great American Traveler" of that name? If so, he is rather open to the imputation of being a "carpet bagser," which is always a serious objection with the ex-rebels unless the man is of unquestionable Democratic antecedents. On Wednesday last "the U. S. Supreme Court made a very summary disposition of the Hepburn-Griswall case, better known as the legal tender case. The petition for a re-hearing was dismissed, and leaves the former action of the court in doubt ; but independent to that action, legal tenders are not sufficient to atufy a doli contracted previous to 1862. The House has decided that the election in the First Congressional District of Lou isiana was not valid thus disposing of .Mr. Syphcr'g claims very summarily. The dis affected Democratic press are in the habit of declaiming that a scat will always be giv en by this Congress to any Republican claimant Will they make a note of this Action, and give the lie to their former as sertions ? Hon. Benjamin G. Harris announces him self as a candidate for the next Congress from the Fifth district in Maryland, and takes for his platform some relics of antiqui ty recently discovered in Cheops. In other words, he announces hiself as a Democrat io Staterrights-anti-Fiueenth Amendment candidate. Poor Harris! He had better divest his mind of his antiquated ideas, and submit to passing events. The Philadelphia Ltqmrer in its money column tersely says : "Until Congress ad journs or takes some definite action on the money measures now pending, merchants and manufacturers will hold back money from their enterprise, contracting their op erations, for fear of some change in the fi nancial policy that might involve them in wriou loss if not in ruin. While the pres ent uncertainty continues, trade proper will be dull." - Chief Justice Chasas, it appears, has two etrings to his Presidential bow. One of the Republican journals of Chicago says that his Fifteenth amendment letter is bid for Democratic party ; another Chicago Repub lican orgap says thin letter is a bid for the African party. We apprehend that whila said letter is clearly for the African party, and has a strong leaning to the Democratic party, Jt will avail nothing with either party. Because why ? Both are on another tack. - ' As a party, the Democracy havo no love fox soldier's orphan's homes notwithstand ing a few conspicuous individual exceptions. A significant illustration of this partisan ill will was afforded in the OhiajScnate, on the 16th of April, when, to defeat the organiza tion of a State "Home," for the little chil dren in blue, the Democratic members at. tempted to break up the session by desert ing thair seats iu a body. This game was shrewdly foiled, and Ohio provides a home for her soldier' orphans, in spite of Detno f ratic spite. The Democratio Desertion of Georgia. The Pittsburg Gazette says : "We have to thank aeven Democratic Senators Messrs. Casserly, Davis, Hamilton, Mc Creery, Saulsbury, Stockton and Thurman for remanding Georgia to military con trol, and excluding her from present repre sentation in Congress. Had they voted the other way, the Pomeroy substitute would have b-jen beaten,- 31 to 30. Having en grafted these extreme Radical ideas upon the bill, thee Democratic Seaators objected to a postponement, insisting that it should be passed forthwith. Also by the aid of Democratic votes,the President was empow ered to suspend the writ of habeas corjms. Having thus perfected the measure to suit their views, they suffered its final passage by the Senate, 27 to 23, when, by voting a gainst it, instead of dodging as they did, they could have beaten it by a decisive ma jority. "This is the latest phase of Democracy for us! Supporting a military Government, denying Federal rights to a State, suspend ing a process which is essential to political liberty all sanctioned bv Democratic Sena tors. It is all right, yet it is very surpris ing ! These votes should not be forgotten. "Hereafter, when the opposition talk of 'military satraps. Radical oppressions, and the wrongs perpetrated - upon Southern rights, it will be answer enough to point to the e Democratic votes, which have riveted such 'hateful chains upon the limbs of South ern freemen.' lhat wiil render further ar gument unnecessary. Whether we have to criticise a political blunder, or chronicle a tardy conversion, it amounts to the same thing at last." The Indians. The Pittsburg Dispatch says : "After all the outcry against Colonel Baker, for his attack n the camp of the Picgan Indians, his course is now justified by the indications that the Indians have on ly been waiting for spring and grass to com mence again their war on the whites. Noth ing is more clearly settled than that, during winter, the United States troops should wage decisive war against all Indians that do not give the most perfect guarantees for future good behavior. With the present spring, apprehensions arc entertained of danger to the Pacific Railroad, from the In dians. The settlers are alert, and will not suffer themselves to be surprised, but it is impossible to guard so extended a line of road against the roving bands of marauders who will constantly cross and re cross the track. Hitherto the Indians have had a superstitious regard for the railroad, which assumed in their eyes something more than material shape. But they have better knowledge now. A half breed, Fonie six months ago, killed a white, and fled to the Sioux for safety, and he has improved the opportunity to instruct the savages in the means to be employed to obstruct the road, throw trains from the track, take up rails, and otherwise interfere with the operation of the line. There is good reason, there fore, for the apprehensions which are felt for the safety of the road." Ax Important -Bill. On April 13th, Mr. Armjtrong, of the Clinton District, in troduced the following bill in the House of Representatives, which was read and order ed to be printed. As Clearfield is one of the counties named, the bill will be perused with interest by our readers generally : Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of t'le Unite!- Strifes of A merien in Congress assrmbteil. That ail pro cess, in all actions and prosecutions, and all judicial proceedings at law or in equity, which shall hereafter arise, and in which the defendant or defendants shall reside iu any of the following counties of the western dis trict ot l'ennsylvauia,viz : V yomine. Union, Northumberland, Montour, Columbia, Sul livan, Bradford, Tioga, Lycoming, Snyder, Centre, Clearfield, Clinton, Cameron and Potter, shall be issued from and returnable to the courts of said district, to be ho) Jen at Williamsport, and, together with all suits, prosecutions, or business heretofore begun, pending and undetermined, arising from any of the said counties, shall be heard or tried there only, unlessFwith the consent of the parties, the court shall direct the same to be hoard or tried at the comts to be holden at Pitts. burg or Erie, in said district. A Sharp Trick. On Wednesday morn ing, April 20t.li, the Treasurer's office of Vermillion count;, Indiana, was robbed of a large sum of money. The despatch an nouncing the fact, also su.'ted that the rob bers had fled to the woods, .nearly naked, having thrown off their t-lothiu.g as they were pursued by hundreds of people. But it seems the fugitives were up to the emer gency. Some time during the day,they pre sented themselves to two well-known citi zens on the highway, and drawing a revol ver, compelled the citizens to strip off most of their clothing, which the robbers put on and then "lit out." The seaii nude citi zens were soon picked up by a number of men who were hunting the burglars, 2nd having every external appearance of being the fugitive thieves, they were arrested and taken to Clinton or Newport fur trial. They proved an alibi and got off. Pity ox Vws.Tlie Absentees. Te Daily Miners' Journal says : "Tho following are the seven Pennsylvania members of Congress who were absent when the vote was taken in the House, on Monday even ing, reducing the duty on pig iron form $0 to $5: Messrs. Haldeman, Stiles, Armstrong, Getz, Van Auken, Covode anj Donnelly. Donnelly was paired off with Orth, and therefore is not censurable. If this figure stands in the bill, these members, unless their districts are free trade, or they can give a reasonable excuse for their absence may as well prepare for private life." New Gold Mxis. Reports of the dis covery of wonderfully rich gold mines in New Mexiao, have reached San Francisco. The ledges are represented as being from fifty to three hundred feet in width, and eon tain very rich quartz. The location of the mines is Hear the Sullitt Ltcduroff Moun tain, in the Virginia Distriet. fifteen miles west of Burr's Mountain. Tucson is said to be nearly deserted. Colonel Dunne, com manding at Fort Bowie, has established a post at the mines far tho protection of the miners. Parties are leaving San Diego and Los Angeles for the new iwirje3. Homesteads foe Discharged Sol diers. The bill lately presented in the House by Hon. G. W. Scofield, of Pennsyl vania, entitled "an act amendatory of the homestead act of May 20, 1862" (says the Newark Courier), commends itself to all, inasmuch as it asks for no bounties what ever, Jsut it is intended to give a veal and solid encouragement to a large class of our discharged soldiers who desire homesteads upon the public lands in the Western States. Such provisions as therein contained will as suredly gain the approval of the Public Lands Committee, as the bill is especially designed to thoroughly protect and encour age actual set tlement upon the public lands, whilst the inducements presented are such as should be held out to the ex-soldiers, many of whom have but little means, with large families to support, and would gladly avail themselves of the privileges therein contained. The conditions are much the same as under the homestead act, but grant much easier terms to the soldier at the com mencement than is now obtained under that act. The policy of the Government is that the remaining public lauds shall be taken up. by actual settlers. This bill will materially assist in accomplishing this great and wise purpose. The thanks of the discba: ged sol diers and the count ry are due J udge Scofield for introducing, at this opportune time.such a just, benevolent and most salutary measure, as it not only secures a home to applicants, but will very materially accelerate the settle ment and improvement of the great West. Such a measure will be a loug deferred act of justice to many of our brave boys who need homes. We hope the Pub. is Lands Committee, to whom the bill was referred. will take favorable action at an early day. The Census. The ninth census of the United States will be taken on the first of. June next. Citizens can do much to for ward the work and insure its thoroughness by preparing statistics beforehand for the deputy marshal. The names, ages, num bers, sex, color, &c, of every family will be required ; statistics of farm products, manu factures, etc., etc., must be furnished. Heads of families are the proper persons to give this inform ation ; bnt in their absence any member of the family over twenty may act as their agent. A refusal to furnish the information, or furnishing a false statement, with knowledge, renders the person so of fending liable to a fine of $30, to be sued for and recovered in an action of debt by the deputy marshal, or assistant to whom such refusal or false statement shall be made. The Philadelphia Press says that General Forrest was recently at Greensboro, North Carolina, seeking negro laborers for the rail road, the construction of whieh ho is super intending. He wanted a thousand, but ob tained only thirty. While there he pom pously announced he would have no Rich mond negroes; he had tried a hundred of them, and found them, without exception genuine Radicals. His ill-success in Greens Loro would seem to indicate thatDeinocratu colored laborers are scarce in the South. We are sorry for the General, but really don't see how he is to man his picks and shovels with an orthodox Democratic force," unlets be shall relinquish entirely his idea of ob taining colored laborers, and apply, say in New York .for a different article. Wfiat Makes Drunk. They have been analyzinjfsome whisky, gin and port wine in Stoning,on, Conn., and the result must be very comforting to the tipplers. The port rine contained oxide of lead and sul- 1 phuric acid, besides arioTis coloring and astringent drugs. 1 rnf. cilmuan says ot this precious decoction that it would be hard to find a "viler or more pernicious falsifica tion of a wine or liquor than this sample." A pint bottle of whisky was found to contain sulphuric acid, )ad. iron and fusil oil. The gin consisted of lead, su-phuric acid, oil of juniper, oil of turpentine, sugar and other ingredients. Humors of War with Spai.v. The telegraph reports a highly sensational rumor to the effect that we are on the eve, of war with Spain and that immense orders for naval stores have been issued by the Navy Department. Such rumors should be re ceived with a large margin of allowance. Spain has enough to do at home just now, and is not likely to seek a foreign war; and the United States arc not likely to plunge into hostilities against a foreign natiou without a good reason. Senator Saulsbcry's term expires on the 4th of March, 1871. Should the Republicans carry the Legislature of Dela ware next fall, it is understood that Hon. George P. Fi.-her, recently nominated by the President as Uuited States District Attorney for that District, will bo the Republican candidate for the Uuited States Sexate. Judge Fisher is a native of Dela ware, and proposes to resume his residence in tti:-t State. Remcxed. Gen. Raasloff, Danish Min ister of War hiu' resigned his office on ac count of the failure the United States to complete the bargain foi" the purchase of St. Thomas. He was the Unish Minister in this couutry when the negotiations for that island were commenced, and feels him self so far identified with the transaction that its failure makes it necessary for him to go out of office. The Worsd. M. Vivien de Saint-Martin in his Geographical Almanac for 1869, esti mates the number of yellow people in the world at 584,000,000; whites, 580,000,000 ; blacks, 130,000,000; Malays, 25,000,000; other races, 30,000,000; and aboriginal Americans at 12,000,000. This latter figure is well calculated to appal Gen. Sheridan, if he is credulous enough to bolieve every thing he reads. When the Republican party came into power in 1S60, in Indiana, they received as a legacy from the Democrats a debt of .over $10,000,000. To this amount the war ad ded $3,000,000. The Republican adminis tration has paid off the debt $7,000,000,and hopes to wipe it al! out before the 1st of January, 1S7J. A Little of Everything. A bad go Chicago.

The Louisville Cotmnercud, in advocating a general amnesty, thinks "a healthy consti tution can digest not only Revels but rebels. The figure is a good one, but the analogy is imperfect. Healthy stomachs are often able to digest very tough food, provided it has been first properly prepared ; but no consti tution could bear the strain which would en sue upon swallowing several bushels of lob sters at cne time, especially if their claws were left on. We can probably assimilate all tho leading rebels in time, but shall have to take them at numerous sittings, and not too many at once. Even then experience teaches us that many of them have horns, and hoofs and claws.which cause a dreadful amount of distress afterward.
