Raftsman's Journal, r . J-BOW.BOlTORAa'DPBOr'RIB'TOR. CLEARFIELD, J'A., iAT II, IS70. The Democratic papers are greatly en raged at the Wea of electing negroes to office ; and yet, in many heavy Republican districts, they are ready to vote for any colored man who consents to run against his party ! The Chicago Times, lemocratic, coolly claims that the fifteenth amendment ha added one million of votes to the Democratic party. Perhaps the Times meant to say that that amendment bad obliterated that many Democratic suffrages. The World gives the "revenue reformers" professing Republicanism, notice that "they must choose between surrendering their new connections and sundering their old party ties." So face the music, gentlemen, and prepare to inarch. The World says the arms of the Democracy are ready to receive you, and it invites you to come. Free trade writers have been misrepresen ting facts by putting the value of American iron and 6teel and the manufactures thereo at $119,950,000; whereas the true value, as carefully calculated by the American Iron and Steel Association, is $750000,000 a year, more than six times the amount con ceded by the free traders. Now here (says the Cincinnati Timet) is more persecution of Democrats. Some nine hundred of them, confined in the Illinois peuitentiary. have been deprived of their daily mental pabulum, the Warden having prohibited the circulation of the Chicago Tiutex in thartbstitution on the ground that it is an indecent and immoral publication, and calculated to corrupt, the morals of prisoners. It is considered a very good pa per for Chicago, but it won't do for the penitentiary. It is authoritatively charged in the Phila delphia Prets that certain Democratic Con gressmen, representing the strongest iron and manufacturing districts of Pennsylvania, have been in the habit, during the discussion on the tariff bill, of voting with the free traders when the vote, taken viea voce, is not recorded, and with the protectionists when the yeas and nays are called and recor ded. This belongs to the lowest stratum of political meanness, and the deceptious gentlemen should be ferreted out and ven tilated. There is a singular newspaper at Manas sas, Va. The tone of the whole paper, with the exception of one columu, is ultra South ern Democratic.- The one column supports Grant and his Administration. In conse quence of the confusion created by this mix ture of politics, the editor has been obliged to announce "that the arrangement by which the 'Republican column' is inserted in this paper was made without his consent," and adds emphatically "that he is Southern, born and in lull sympathy with the people of bis native soil." And now comes the report that the Hon. John Morrissey, memher of Congress from New York, threatens to resign because he is unacquainted with the duties of the position. Mr. Morrissey has certaiuly not distinguish ed himself as a legislator, nor even champi oned the cause of Democracy as valiantly as was justly expected of so doughty a warrior; but he could not more fittingly represent the class of Democrats who elected him than by remaining at home and attending t his faro business, as he is said to do. It would be well if ignorance were always voiceless in our governmental affairs. It is doubtful if another man could be found in the party who would do lesa talking and voting against the interests of the eountry, and we hoie, there fore, that Mr. Morrissey may be persuaded not to resign. Now when the Democracy are in convul sions over the proclamation of the Constitu tional Amendment which confers on some 900,000 Nativ Americans the rights of A merican citizens,!and thereby does such sig nal injustice and outrage to about the same number of Irishmen ; and when these much wronged Irishmen are clamoring for a re duction of taxation to relieve them from the burdens which others bear just now, when we are gravely informed that the payment of our Debt is a fantastical dream and an "abolition" impossibility comes the bil lious and remorseless Boutwell to say that "the reduction of the National debt has de creased during April, 1870, $11,697,793 39!" What cursed particularity ! Even to the 39 tynts ! Verily, the troubles of the Democra cy increase apace, and the necessity for a '.'white man's" party is becoming pressing. Senator SauLbury, of Delaware, is in a bad way. Stewart, of Nevada, has introduc ed a bill to enforce the provisions of the Fif teenth amendment It is so framed as to take in the State of Delaware, and to allow the negroes to vote there a prospect not at all p leaking to Saulsbury. To drown his grief, the Senator has taken to the flowing bowl, and he is beginning to repeat his old exhibitions on the floor of the Senate Cham ber. The other day he met Senator Stew art, and informed him that if the bill passed he would challenge him to mortal combat "Do itV said Stewart; "but remember, Saulsbury, the eyes of all Delaware will be on you, and you most kill me, or else you will never come back to the Senate!" "Well," said Saulsbury, reflecting, "if that bill passes, I guess I won't oom back, any how which guess may be nearer the truth than he iu?agV?C( when he made it. Match-Stick Factory. Within the past week, mention has fre quently been made in reference to the loca ting of a match-stick factory at Clearfield, by the Snow Shoe Company-their establish ment at that place having recently been de stroyed by fire. How much truth there is in the romor. we are unable to gay not bavin, any definite information on the sub ject But, te that s it may, why should iiot such a manufactory be located here? We have plenty of timber, of the best qual ity, for that purpose. Then, all that is re quired is the requisite capital and enter prise. To give some idea of the vastness of the match business, in this country and in Eu rope, it is only necessary to give a few facts. It is estimated that Europe daily consumes two thousand? millions (2,000,000,000) of matches, and to manufacture these at least four hundred thousand (400,000) cubic yards of timber is required, giving employment to five hundred thousand (500,000) work men, and produces goods valued at fifty mil lions (50,000,000) of dollars. In this eoun tiy, in Western New York, is located a match factory which uses annually seven hundred and twenty thousand (720,000) cu bic feet of white pine, and four hundred thousand (400,000) feet of basswood for ca ses, besides a vast amount of other material. These statistics furnish conclusive evi dence of the extent of the match business, and will serve to illustrate the importance of the locating of a match-stick factory in our midt In fact, the general benefit to be derived from the erection of such estab lishment here can scarcely be estimated. It would create a home market for a vast a mount of lumber. It would give employ ment to a large number of persons ; and hence, as a result, would stimulate all oth er branches of business to increased activity and prosperity. Merchants, mechanics, ar tizans, laborers, farmers, everybody, would be benefitted thereby. We commend this subject to our citizens, and hope that an ef fort will be made to induce the erection of a match-stick manufactory here. The Sew York Legislature. There appears to be among the people and press of New York a pretty universal senti ment that the Legislature of that State which very recently adjourned and disband ed, was, in no respect, any better than it ought to have been, and in most respects much wore. The Sun expresses the pre vailing opinion in the following paragraph : "After a trial of four months, what is the verdict of every well informed and unbiased citizen of this State? Undoubtedly it is, that the Legislature which has just retired from the Capitol is the most corrupt and infa mous body that ever defiled its halls. So audacious, brazen and shameless has it shown itself to be, that it has made itself ridicu lous by affecting to hold up to scorn those who have had the courage to expose and de nounce its manifold rascalities, while, when hard pressed by explicit charges of corrupt tion, it has gone through the mockery of selecting some of its tainted members to si in judgment upon its own delinquencies." This it should be remembered is the Leg islature for which Governor Hoffman became a responsible guarantor last November, when, in a congratulatory speech, he assured his political friends that their long-cherished hopes of reform should not be disappointed, snd especially that, whatever else might hap pen, the Legislature of J 870 would prove to be an honest one. Finally Settled. The decision of the Philadelphia Court of Quarter Sessions, last week, in the Dis trict Attorney cae, Furman Sheppard r. Charles Gibbons, is, we presume, a final de termination of the question. The following is the decision and decree which ousts Mr. Gibbons and restores Mr. Sheppard : "It therefore becomes our duty, and we do hereby declare and decree that, at the general election, held on the second Tues day of October. 1S63, Furman Sheppard, having received the highest number of votes, was duly and legally elected to the-of-fice of District Attorney for the city of Phil adelphia. And we do further order, that the decree of the 16th of October, 1869, of this Court, wherein it is stated that Charles Gibbons was elected District Attorney, he set aside and annulled, and that the decree now made, declaring the election of Furman Sheppard to the office of District Attorney, shall be substituted, and stand for the de cree, which is hereby set aside and annull ed." Immediately after the delivery of this de cision. Judge Allison administered the oath of office to Mr. Sheppard. The contest has been a "nip-and-tuck" affair from beginning to ending, and we presume the parties them selves are glad to have it terminated. The opinion appears to have been unanimous, and therefore, whatever way be thought to the contrary by many, we presume the de cision will be quietly and generally acquiesc ed in. Another Hollidat. Mr. Schenck in troduced in the House, on Monday, May 2, a joint resolution, which was passed with out division, declaring the 30th of May, be ing the day appointed and accustomed to be used for the decoration of the graves of sol diers who died in the war in defense of the Union against rebellion, a public holliday to be forever observed aa such by the people of the United States. Improved. The Somerset Herald, last week, appeared in a new dress, and enlarg ed form. The Whig attachment has been dropped from the heading it having be come obsolete. The IleralJ is a good, reli able paper, and deserves increased support at the hands of the Republicans of Somer set county. Conflicting accounts continue to be re ceived from the Indian country. Strong hopes are still entertained that a general war may be avoided. As yet no open out break has occurred, and if prompt measures are taken at once, it is believed at the In dian Bureau, that there will be none. The General Committee of the Grand Army of the Republic has ordered that the 30th inst. be observed throughout the coun try as "Decoration Day," on which day the posts of the order throughout the country will attend to the decoration of the graves of the nation's dead, in national and other cemeteries. A Just Tribute. The Harrisburg Tel egraph of the 2d says : State Treasurer, Hon. R. W. Mackey, to-day transferred the Treasury to his suc cessor, Hon. W. W. Irwin. We doasimpie duty in recording that, never in the history of Pennsylvania have her finances been no ably managed or transferred in a manner so creditable to the retiring officer. During Mr. Mackey's term of one year the repre hensible and illegal system of loaning the funds of the State to private individuals for their benefit has been abolished. The "vault laccount" which consisted of due bills of these parties amounted one year ago to $211,000; to-day there is no such ac count Ihe balance on nana is now 91,- 762,000, against $880,000 one year ago, and not less than $600,000, in round numbers, of our State debt has been paid off. Mr. Mackey's able report on the finances; bis business-like suggestion; his untiring and restless energy and activity in the man agement of his trust ; have not only favora bly affected the value of our bonds, but have strengthened the financial condition and standing of the State. His bold, and at the time startling, offer to anticipate the pay ment of a loan not due was found to imme diate! v enhance the nrice of our loans, until now every bond issued by our State com mands a premium the five per cents, even selling at 103- it will be difficult to surpass this superb management of our finances ; and the vear endine May 2. 1870, will fur nish a severe test and comparison for any future administration of this important de partment of our State government Fair Warning. The audacious pro position of certain Republicans to disband the Republican party in the interest 01 Free Trade, has elicited some plain talk from the New York Tribune. In the course of an edi torial, that paper gives the gentlemen the followine fair warning ; Again we insist that the Republican party can be upheld only by respect freely accor- AA Li? its mpnihpra tn panh others COnvic- tions. If the Free Traders in that party want to turn the frotectiousts out 01 u we bid them set about the job af once, and linn thpv II have a enmi time : if thev choose to get out themselves, they have a perfect right to do so, and we snail not try to stop them ; but if they choose to stay in the party and let us stay also, they may wisely as well as justly concede that wei'rotectionists hold our opinions by as valid a tenure as they hold theirs. They may go farther and fare no better. Pennsylvania State Sundat School Association. The Annual Convention will be held at Harrisburg, Tuesday, Wedne- day and Thursday, June 14, 15. and 16. George II. Stuart, Esq., is expected to preside. Each Sunday school in the State is requested to send two or more delegates. Pastors and Sunday school workers are also invited to attend and participate. It is re quested that the names of those who expect to attend shall be sent to Rev. Thomas II Robinson, D D., Chairman, or John M Sayford, Esq., Secretary, of the local com mittee of arrangements at Harrisburg, on or before the first day of June, .so that places of entertainment may be provided. Secrc tariea of country organizations are requested to immediately send their address to the State Secretary, Lewis D. Vail, Esq., 703 Sansom Street, Philadelphia, so as to re ceive printed details. Where there is no organization, the Secretary wishes to corre ipoud with some earnest Sunday-school worker, and requests that his or her name be forwarded to (hem. " Hon. G. W. Scofjkld. The Warren Ledger, (Democratic,) says : Mr. Scoficld has written a letter in reply to one received, to the effect that if his party desire him to be a candidate for re-election to Congress, he will not decline. He has jumped over to the old Southern theoiy of keeping men iu office learn them the trade and let them work at it. It is a little strange that he could adopt anything having a Southern tincture. The Harrisburg Patri ot pays Mr. Scofield a compliment in saying he is the ablest man in either House oi Congress from this State, We recollect that the late Abyah Morrison used to say that he was a better lawyer than there was in Warren, and then setting bis cane firmly on the floor to give the words emphasis, would say, "And that is not saying much." But really we agree with the Patriot. It is of but little use to hunt in the Republican ranks for a better man. Is Tms So ? The Washington correspon dence of a New York journal makes known a very interesting fact IThe writer had been permitted to examine a number of private letters received by Senators from eminent English statesmen, and all of which evinced an earnest desire for an early and satisfactory adjusnictit of our Alabamaclaims. One letter, from Mr. Gladstone, said sub stantially, this: Canada was gravitating towards this conn, try so fast that the mother country was fully reconciled to the idea of cutting loose from her. If Canada had a mind to ask for inde pendence through her Parliament, England would yield a ready assent. The English government had been gradually cutting off the supplies from Canada solely with the view to her annexation to the United States, and there was now a powerful influence at work in the Canadian Parliament to urge on an appeal for self-government, which, although it meant annexation, the English government was more than willing to grant Railboads Liable To State Tax Tion. In the case of John Edgar Thom son vs. the Union Pacific Railroad, which came before the United States Supreme Court, on the refusal of the Company to pay certain taxes assessed by the State of Kansas, Chief Justice Chase decided that if the principle of exemption, fought to be estab lished, were recognized, it would remove from the reach of State taxation all the pro perty of every agent of the Government. Every corporation engaged in the trans-' portation of the mails, or Government prop erty of any description, by land or water, or in supplying materials for the use of the Government, or in performing any service, of whatever kind, might claim the exemp tion. He decided against the company. O'Brien's Menagerie is composed of the riehest collection of the most singular and picturesque marvels in the animal king dom ever combined in one exhibition. By reference to the tidvertisement, it will be seen that Mr. O'Brien's exhibition is exclu sively a Menagerie that no circus show is identified with it and as such is unobjec tionable, and will afford all classes of per sons an opportunity to witness this vast col lection of the wonderful works of nature.
