Raftsman's $0ttntal. I. 1. BOW, EDITOB AD PROPKIITOR. CLEARFIELD, PA., MAY 4, 1870. Gold was run up to 1151 on Saturday, in New York. . It is stated that the infallability of the Pope is not to be proclaimed, after all, by the Ecumenical Council. An investigation is going on which proves that over two hundred New York Custom House officers have received bribes from smugglers. The fact will surprise no one. but that it should be found out is really a mazing. The Chicago Time having undertaken to show, in a long aud labored editorial, that the Democratic party can never succeed un til it changes its name.the Post very proper ly remarks, "the name is to nfuch better than the thing, that it would be wiser to chanjre its nature." One Henry D. Foster, a Democrat of the "straightest sect ;" one who would not rob the people of- a dollar ; who has the inter est of the poor at heart ; who believes in low taxes and rigid economy, has coolly pocket ed $3,500 of the public money, on the pre tence that he was elected to Congress from the Twenty-first Pennsylvania district. Whatever scoffers may think of the doc trine of the efficacy of grace, it has recently had a remarkable illustration in the case of Clement L. Yallandigham, who has deliver ed an address in favor of the Holy Scriptures in the public schools. Nothing less than the grace of God or the hope of getting back to Congress could bring any such good thin& out of Yallandigham. In the African celebration at Louisville, Ky.,the other day,of the Fifteenth Amend ment, they had a transparency in which the "Train of Progress" was depicted a loco motive labeled "The Fifteenth Amend ment," with a train of twenty-nine cars at tached, representing the ratifying States, and a number of jackasses harnessed to the rear car, emblematic of the States refusing to ratify, and vainly trying to pull the train backward. A neat thing for Sauibe "a palpable hit." The New York Star, a paper of decided ly Democratic affinities, calls "common sense to the front," and remarks, "What u the use of more fuss about the darkey? Pleas ant or unpleasant, the fact is that the Con stitution of the United States, by the Fif teenth Amendment, recognizes the black man as a citizen, and grants him all the rights of such. Now that it is settled that he can vote, the question is, who will get his votes. There is no use in sweeping a gatnst the tide. It is much easier to go with it and you can't go against it" The plan of minority representation, which has recently been much discussed in En gland, has been practically applied, on a email scale, in this Stace. An act was pass ed by the Legislature amending the charter of the town of Bloomsburg, which provides that when six officers are to be chosen, each voter may give one vote to each of six per sons, or one vote and a half to eich of four, two votes to each of three, three votes to each of two, or six votes to one. At the first election held under the new regulation, for seven members of the town council, three Democrats were chosen and four of the op position party. As the town has hitherto always been strongly Democratio,being the home of Senator Buckalcw, this result was rather unexpected, especially to the Sena tor, who had himself procured the passage of the law in question. For downright cheek, of that stony, im movable, unblushing kind, commend us to J. 8. Golladay, the ex cadetship peddler in Congress from Kentucky. After reiigning to save expulsion from' Congress, Golladay went back to his constituency with a whine for re-election. Now he assumes a defiant attitude rnd travels over his State with a huse pis tol at his waist, threatening news paper men and declaring his intention .to "contest" the seat with the man just elected to fill his plai e. The gallant Golladay's par ticular ambition now is to perforate, with buckshot, some newspaper man of Kentuc ky, who has seen fit to expose his tricks, which, we opine, will be no easy matter, for those Kentuck editors have an ugly habit of being very expert with, the pistol, a fact, when the redoubtable Golladay considers, will perhaps have an effect to cool his war like nature. The Altoona Sun, in referring to the con duct of the colored men who participated in the Fifteenth Amendment celebration in that city, on the 26th of April, says : "Too much praise cannot be awarded them for the excellent manner in which they conducted themselves. . . . The expectations of their best friends wre fully realized. This we say, as justice demands, of their good beha vior during the day," and then bands them over to the "radical party" in the following very graceful style ; "So far as we are con cerned, if the laws of the land must be vio lated, and negroes permitted to vote, the radical party is welcome to every such vote x in the eouutry." But, we presume, the lat ter remarks must be taken in a "Pickwick ian" sense, for the editor next trys to whee dle them into supporting his party, by say ing that "if any negro has the good sense to vote the Democratic ticket, let him be wel comed." Certainly, Mr. Sun, let them be welcomed ; but your way of putting it nmks a Jittle of "sour grapes," eh? A Big Sale. The Brady's Bend ."thousand barrel" oil 6trike, has given a new impetus to specula tion in that region, and lands are Selling at almost fabulous prices in consequence. The Oil City Times, iu referring to the subject, says: "During the past week those who have visited Brady's Bend to inspect the new well which" is causing so much excitement in oil dom, are reminded of the early days in this region, when fortunes were suuk and made in a single day. We had thought the days of excitement were rer, even if there were more of the very largest' wells discovered, but it seems not, as at Brady's leases and land increase in price thousands of dollars in a single hour. One farm of eighty acres was bargained for at $40,000, the money to be paid tbe following day at precisely 2 P. m. The purchaser was ten minutes behind the stipulated time, when the farmer refused to comply with the contract. . The same after noon he set his price at $80,000 and sold a gain. The f econd purchaser was also a few minutes behind the time agreed upon when the money was to be paid over, and he lost the property. On the next morning the farmer sold his eighty acres for $100,000 in cash:" . Here we have another instance of the ef fects of individual enterprise in increasing the value of property. Previous to the present "oil strike," property sold at mere nominal prices, and but a limited" business was done at Brady's Bend ; but now all is activity and bustle and life. What individual enterprise has done for Brady's Bend, and other places, it can do for ClearfieM. But, says one, we have no oil here. True ; but we have other equally valuable resources. We have an abundance of pine and oak timber, coal, iron-ore, glass- sand, fire-clay, etc. If our citizens will but erect saw-mills, planing mills, match facto ries, furnaces, glass works, fire-brick works, etc., and develop and utilize the resources in our midst, the day is not far distant when we will see Clearfield one of the most pros perous inland towns in the State. All that is required to make this place one of the most important and extensive business marts in the Commonwealth, is the proper spirit of enterprise, for we possess the capital, the water power, and other requisite raw mate rials to make it such. We hope those most interested, and who can command the means and influence, will give these suggestions the consideration their importance demand. The New System of Tax Collection. The Legislature, at its session just closed, changed the mode of collecting the County, State and Bounty taxes in this county. The provisions of the law are, in effect, as fol lows : I. Prior to the first Monday in April, in each year, tbe duplicates are made out and placed in the hands ot the .treasurer. II. The Treasurer gives 30 days notice in the newspapers and by handbills, that he will attend at the election house in each dis- drict, on some day fixed by him, prior to September first, to receive and receipt for taxes. IIL Every person paying his or her tax es to the Treasurer before September first, is entitled to a deduction ot five per cent thereon. IV. If any taxes remain unpaid for 30 days after September first, the Treasurer adds five per cent to the amount thereof and issues his warrant to the Constable of the proper district, directing him to collect the same. V. The Constable must demand the same and if they be paid on demand or within ten days, his fees are the five per cent added by the Treasurer ; if not so paid, the Constable is empowered to levy and sell, and collect the usual fees. VI. The Treasurer charges the Constable with the sum of the taxes jeiven to him for collection and he and his bail are holden for the amount of the same. He can obtain ex oncrations in the usual manner. VII. It is made the duty of the Consta ble to. collect, settle and pay over to the Treasurer all of said taxes within two months from receiving the warrant for collection, and upon failure so to do, the Treasurer is ordered to forthwith sue out his bond and collect the same. VIII. In such action against the Consta ble and his bail, if judgment be recovered, twelve per cent interest is to be charged up on the balance due, after the two months have expired, and no stay ol execution al lowed. IX. A penalty of $50 is imposed upon any Treasurer or Constable who fails or re fuses to perform any duty required by this law. X. The Treasarer is allowed five per cent upon all taxes collected and paid out by him under this act. XI. All laws inconsistent with this are repealed. The Tariff Qcestion. It seems that the freetradista incline no w to suspect that they sold themselves rather than the protec tionists by their raid on the duty on iron, during the absence of the Pennsylvania mem bers, a few evening since as witness, the following:- The indications now point to a failure of the new tariff, which leads to a continuance of the old, and maintains for another year the existing oppressive rates. The brethren are shrewd. Not being able to carry an increase, and eyeing strong enough to forbid a decrease, they will simply do nothing but let the present crucifying rates remaiu. The first impulse of the free traders was to crow, over the result achieved, as a tri umph of free trade. We most sincerely hope our delegation will push the pending bill to the wall If cheating is to be em ployed, let the consequences fall on the heads of those who invoke it. Toe sew Army Bill. It is stated that the army bill of Senator Wilson, as finally agreed upon by tbe Senate Military Com mittee, reduces the army to 25,000 enlisted men ; abolishes the grade of general and lieutenant general as soon as vacancy occurs fixes' the pay of the former at $12, 000, and the Jatter at $10,000 per annum. Ileduces the number of major generals to three, and brigadiers to six. It does not provide for mustering out superfluous officers except upon their own application, and then allows them one year's pay. The pay of the offi. cers is the same as in Logan's bill. It makes it unlawful to hold a civil office. Luckt Banks. Thirteen savings banks in Nw York city, have on hand surplui funds to the amount of $7,020,615 ns a considerable portion of this large sum ia made up of unclaimed deposits left by par ties who have died or disappeared, making no sign. Terrible Disaster. - A most terrible disaster occurred at Rich mond Va., on Wednesday last, April 27th, if hnnr 11 n iWlr The Snnreme Court of Appeals of Virginia was crowded with eminent citizens and many local poiuieiua and a great many of the public at large, wno were drawn there by curiosity to near me result of the late hearing of the question as to the Mayoralty ot Richmond. The friends ot Messrs. Ellison and Cahoun, who com prise the prominent Republicans and con servatives of the city, had assembled to hear the decision which u wis expected would be given. Among the many prominent persons were ex Governor Wells, ex-Congressman Millson, Judge John A. Meredith, Patrick H. Aylett, ex-United States District Attor ney for this district : ex-Uoited States Dis trict Atterney L. H. Chandler, and others. At 1 1 o'clock the gallery of the court room, which was crowded, fell in, the floor followed, and then descended thirty feet to the floor below, which was the hall of the House of Delegates of Virginia, on which some few of the members of a caucus were walking around. There was a general crash of all the timbers and the falling of the in side wall. Directly after the disaster occurred, the fire alarm was used to give notice, and the Wt and ladder rnmnanies of the city re paired at once to the scene. A cordon of police was drawn around the building, and the ladders were thrown up to the windows. For three hours the scene was full of horror. Minute after minute there appeared, swung out by a rope tied around the middle of the body, some popular favorite, who after being swung on to the shoulders of one of thefire brigade, was brought down the ladder into the green of the public park, where it was instantly surrounded by two or three thous and of those who had gathered to recognize the slain. The park was filled with agonized weeping women and anxious men until 2 o clock, when the last victim was drawn from the building. After this the police closed the park, refusing admittance to any one. The bodies of the dead having been sent out, all the stores in the city were closed, and placards put up reading, "Closed in consequence of the disaster at the Capital." No more business was done during the day. Fifty nine persons were Killed and about one hundred and seventeen wounded a mong them some of the most prominent and influantial citzens of the city and State. Gov. Walker, of Virginia, has issued a proclamation recommending that Wednes day, the fourth day of May, be observed by the people of the State as a day of humilia tion and prayer, to testify their grief for the late calamity that has befallen the State, and especially its chief city, and toacknowj ed?e their dependednce on aj) all wise Provi dence. The Democracy and the Negro. Whatever else the Democratic party may be a unit upon, it certainly is not on the negro question. On this the wigwam shows much diversity of opinion which, unless it is reconciled and harmonized before 1S72, must entail great trouble and disaster on the party. Some portions ofit in the several States are for accepting the situation as it is, cordially and in good faith, while others take a directly contrary course ; and there is yet a third division between the two extremes, halting, hesitating, not knowing exactly what to do. The action of some of the Democratic members of the New York Legislature in the Assembly debaten Sen ator Norton's bill to give effect to the Fifteenth Amendment, is thus sketched iu the Buffalo Express : ' "Many of the Democrats who spoke as tonished their Republican auditors by the remarkable change of heart upon the subject ot negro sunrage which they exhibted. Mr. Murphy explained that be aid not give his vote for the bill out of any deference to the XVth Amendment. Far from it. But he was auxous to place the black man on an equal footing with the white man at the ballot-box, because slavery had been abolish ed and because be regarded the exaction of a property qualification as a great wrong, unworthy ot a free people. Mr. Jacobs voted for the billbecause he was bound, as a Democrat, to support the laws. Mr. Mitchell supported it because he felt it to be bis duty, as a Democrat, , to " act in a progressive spiiii,' because he bslieved the colored voters would be found intelligent. and because be expected the majority of them would vote the Democratic ticket. We have a suspicion that" it will not be long before we shall find our Democratic breth ren claiming the authorship of the XVth Amendment." A writer in the Chicago Tribune argues that the product of gold this year, will, in all probability, show a great increase on the past. In 1867 the total product of gold and silver in the Pacific States and Territories was $58,000,000; in 1S09 it was;?63,500,000, but this year there is a very marked im provement in the'prospect cf mining affairs. Not only have new mining regions been dis covered, but owing to the improvements in machinery and a more systematic plan ot operations, there has been a large increase in the yield of such old mines as those on the Comstock Lode and many others. The increase in the yield of old mineB has in duced the renewal, within a few months, of work in a great number of California mines that had been abandoned for some years.and the prospect is that the gold and silver yield of tbe Pacific States will be at least $75,000, 000 this year. The Canadians, it would seem, already look upon the annexation of Nova Scotia to the United States as a foregone conclusion. The Montreal Pays thus refers to the sub ject : "In a word, there is general dissatis faction in NovaScotia, This discontent h as intensified to the highest point, and we will not be astonished if the present revolt be the prelude of important events. Every one regards annexation as the only thing which can remove, the dissatisfied feeling which exists in the province, and put an end to the difficulties in which trade has been plunged for wine year. An annexa tion League has been formed, and each day increases its strength. We are persuaded that in a short time it will attain great re sults." ' The Ccllom Anti-Polygamy bill has proved a terrible thorn in the Mormon flesh, and has added fresh fuel to the fires of domes tic dissensions raging in Utah. At the present rapid rate of Mormon dissolution and snail's pace of Congressional legislation the magnificent army of the bill's creation will find no enemy to suSdue. Perhaps the appearance of Governer Shaffer in the Ter ritory, with the announcement that the United States laws, and not those of the Territory, relative to polygamy are to be enforced, will be sufficient. We hope Gover ner Shaffer does not go with the purpose of provoking any conflict, but that he is under instructions to eive the evil time to rot out, as it certainly will if left alone.

VlnnrviA TfiitnnAna AMD VIRGINIA Prospects. The coal field on the West lope of the Alleghenies, extending from the Monongahela to tbe Big Sandy Rivers, is by far the largest, the richest, and is destined to become the most valuable in the world. In Europe nearly all the coal deposits lie far beneath tbe general surface, an d far below the water level. Deep shafts are sunn at immense cost, to reach them ; the mines are then ventilated and drained as they are being worked, only after the most astonishing out lays. On the Kanawha and Collateral val leys, the coal crops out of the hillsides in veins from 5 to 12 feet thick, far above wa ter level, and can be dumped into the cars by the force of gravity, for merely nominal cost, and carried thence to wherever it ia needed. The Chesapeake and Ohio R. R., now in course of construction from the nav igable waters of the James River to the riv er navigation of the Mississippi Valley, the greater partof which is already in operation, crosses both the iron and the coal fields, and unites them to the seaboard on the one hand and the Great West on the other. Nearly 7,000 men are employed upon this great work, and it will not be many months before the cars will travel continuously from Mem phis, St. Louis or Chicago.to and from these great iron and coal deposits, and if need be, on to the navigation of the Atlantic at Richmond. These natural advantages, to gether with the encouraging rush of immi gration now finding its way to Virginia and West Virginia, will give to those States a vast wealth and industry. The completion of the C. and O. R. R. itself will set free a wonderful amount of latent power, and is to rank as one ot the most important works of improvement now in progress. The loan of the Company, which is announced elsewhere in our columns, by the well known Banking firm. Fisk & Hatch, of New York, it will be seen is being steadily absorbed for invest ments. These Bonds have several features of convenience and security not hitherto 'o md comb'md. To all persons contempla ting investments of capital, or the exchange of securities, their remarks will be of spe cial intetest. After the Negro Vote. There is a large negro vote in Philadelphia, which the Democrats are determined to secure, if it can be done for "love or money." In the Fourth (Bill M'Muliin's) ward they have established a notorious negro, who for twen ty years has been a runner with the Moya mensing hose company, in the hotel busi ness. The Democracy supply bim liberally with money, and he dispenses rot-gut free to all who promise to vote the Democratic ticket. How is that for the "White Man's Party?" The Maryland Republicans are preparing for a stirring campaign this Summer and Fall, and they express themselves confident of being able to redeem the State. A late canvass of the State shows 45,000 black vo ters, and about 35.000 white Republican vo ters. The Democrats cannot poll over 70, 000 votes, which will make the State close, with the chances in favor of the Republicans.
