s 1 Raftsman's Journal. I. J. BOW, DlTOBA.Dr-BOPBiT0R. CLEARFIELD, PA., JUNE 8, 1ST0. Wayne M'Vcigh Esq., has been nomi nated by die President to be Minister Resi dent at Constantinople (Turkey), in place of Hon. E. Joy Morris. From tLe Falls City, Nebraska, Journal, we learn that Frank. Barrett, Esq., formerly of tills place, has taken editorial charge of the Jiulo Register, a Dotuocratiu paper. Success to you, FraDk. Dr. Schoeppe, it is pretty certain, will not be granted a new trial, but it 19 pretty generally believed that Governor Geary will not order bis execution until the Legisla ture reassembles and has a chance to per fect that which its former acuon sought to accomplish. . The postoffice at Alexandria, Virginia, is under seizure, while a special agent is investigating various charges against the Postmaster and hia clerks, one being intem plranceanl oglectof business. Wb.2Q the agent took possession of the office, he found a quantity of letters in the basement, which bad been opened, some of then seven oreight years old. A late Texas paper says a band of Indians a few days ago approached within a short distance of the town of Lampasas. A com pany of the Fourth Cavalry went out to meet them, under command of Major llusscll. The company was divided into two detach ments, one of which met the Indians, and in the fight Major Eussell was - mortally wounded. The detachment met with some loss. While we sympathize with the starving Fenians huddled along the Canadian bor ders, in prison and out, we cannot see any good reason fir the interference of our Gov ernment in their behalf. Not only have their misfortunes resulted from making war on a people with whom wo are at peace, but they have violated the law of the land of their adoption to which they now appeal for assistance and protection. Really, the Fenian idea of justice and right is, to say the least, a little mixed. The rebel element in Louisana is terribly excited over the proposition of Mr. Conway, Superintendent of Education, to put the new school bill into operation. It provides for the establishment of public schools in every parish throughout the State. The rebel newspapers are prating loudly about having their "old system" of education sup planted by "carpet-bag" legislation, but when it is stated that prior to the warhere was not a single free school in the State, the "pld system" will not be deeply mourned by the friends of progress. TheFenians have returned home disgust ed, leaving only their leaders behind them. These are in the hands of the United States authoritias, and to all appearance are there like'y to remaia for some time. The Goveri -went, 'to the surprise of many, does not look upon tLe raid as a joke or ho liday excursion and prosecutes the leaders with rigor. Though this may be greatly to the discom fort of the leaders, it is indirectly for the benefit of the masseaof Fenians, who will thus have, fewer Head Centers aud Treasur ers to deceive them in the future. The New York Herald characterizes the late election"iti the State of New York, so far as affording a test of the strength of parties as "a Democratic victory which signifies nothing." From official returns from most of the counties, and generally ac cepted estimates from the rest, it appears that the whole vote cast will not exceed 430,000, against 829,776 cast in 1SGS, show inga lefieiencyof419,776, or about one half of the vote of the State, which loss the stay at-home Republicans count two hundred and fifty thousand and the Democrats one hundred and eighty thousand. The accumulated evidence from all parts of Mexico reveals the condition of that coun try in every sense deplorable. Financially bankrupt, socially demoralized, and political ly disrupted, there is protection neither for property nor persons. Trial by jury is sus pended and special taxes are levied by mere Governors of States. Brigandage is a fa vorite occupation of dissatisfied citizens and defeated politicians. Congress is without authority and the President without power. We bad hoped braver and wiser thinga from this, peoj le after the expulsion of the French and we reluctantly confess to grave disap pointment at witnessing this result of repub lican rule in that unfortunate couhtiy. A Democratic contemporary takes the House of Representatives neverely to task for its action in excluding from the veterans to be pensioned by a proposed bill tho.e who were disloyal to, the country during the late rebellion. Say this organ of the party which is al way full of excuses for the late rebels: "The soldiers of the war with Great Britian were old men when the re bellion broke out. They were unfit for ser vice in field or camp, and at most they could barm their old flag, under which they fought and bled, only by mumbling disloyal phrases." Age has commonly been regarded as the period of wisdom. We certainly never before knew it to be pleaded in ex tenuation of crime. If these veterans were too old to fight either for or against the nation, and could only mumble, they ought to have remained true to their patriotic rccoid, and at least mumbled in favor of Lo;r fTirttry. The Census. The blank schedules, to be used in taking the census, are in the hands of the Assistant Marshals,' some of whom have already com menced operations. There are five sched ules altogether. They embrace a wide range of information. In order that our readers may know what is required of them we give a condeused form of these blanks. Let each one familiarize themselves with the questions, so that prompt answers may be given when the officer calls :' Scbidcli No. 1 will contain information in re lation to the inhabitants of each county.

Religion number of church organiza tions and edifices, denomination, number of persons each church will accommodate, val ue of church property. Protecting the Ballot. The bill to enforce the Fifteenth -Amendment, which has passed both Houses of Congress, is sweeping in its character. It imposes heavy penalties not only on fraudulent voters, but on all aiders and abettors in frauds at elec tions on the judges and inspectors who knowingly refuse to receive honest votes or knowingly receive dishonest ones: or any person who attempts by bribery, intimida tion or threats to prevent any one from vo ting, or from doing any of the acts necessary to qualify him to vote, and on any person who shall oppress or. injure another on ac count of his vote. It gives United States Marshals the power to arrest persons for such offences, and United States courts the power to try them, and it gives the Presi dent authority to enforce the execution of judicial processes under the act by the em ployment of the naval and military forces. It provides that any person, a candidate, who has been deprived of his election by reason of the denial to any citizens of the right to vote, may bring suit to recover his office in Federal or State Courts, aste may choose. It provides also penalties against persons who accept offices, knowing them selves to be ineligible, and abolishes spe cial State tax on Chinese immigrants. B. F. Whitteracre, member of Congress from the First District of South Carolina, who was compelled to resien his seat to avoid expulsion for selling cadetships, has been re -elected. It is to be regretted that his constituency did not select a more hono rable gentlemen to fill bis place. Though the Republican party cannot be held respon sible, since a Republican majority once promptly condemned him, yet it is discred itable to the country that such a man should be re-elected. Decoration Day was generally observed throughout the country, and was made a more general holiday than heretofore. Thus once more, has the memory of our fallen heroes been fitly remembered by au appre ciating people. May this day ever be sa cred as a national holiday. The Canadians may be pardoned for their recent alarm.

Massacre of Jews. A Constantinople dispatch of J une 1 st, says that a fearful war of religious intoler ance had broken out in the Province of Roumelia, a metropolitan province of the Turkish Empire', in the South of Europe. On Sunday, May 29th, all the houses of the Jews were invaded by the native "Chris tians," and all the" Jewish occupants who were unable to escape massacred in cold blood. The Washington Chronicle, in re ferring to this wholesale murder, says : "Such a massacre, surpassing the horrors of St. Bartholomew, is a blot on the age and a disgrace on modern civilization. That it should have been perpetrated by people calling themselves Christians is as humilia ting as it is amazing. Civilized nations should lift up a loud and indignant protest against this beastly outrage upon humanity- Our own Government, we are glad to say, has not been slow to manifest in unmistaka ble terms its abhorence of these outrages. S. Wolf, Esq., having yesterday, Thursday, received telegrams from New York, Louis ville, and Chicago, asking is assistance to prevent the continuance of the outrages in Roumelia, called upon the Secretary of State, who ordered at once the appointment of Adolphe Buchuer, Esq., as Consul Gen eral at Bucharest, Roumelia. Mr. Buch ner is an Israelite, and his appointment is as positive action as the Executive Depart ment of the Government could take to ex press its abhorrence of the massacre." The subject of this persecution and mas sacre has already been introduced into both Houses of Congreis. This prompt action on the part of the American Congress will have a powerful effect on the whole civilized world in condemning this horrible butchery of defenceless and inoffensive people. Democracy in the Southern States is dis covered to be as unregenerate as ever. A late experience at Richmond may be accep ted as pregnant with instruction for their Northern friends who insist upon an imme diate and sweeping amnesty for past politi cal crimes. The municipal election in that city resulted in a clear majority for the Re publican ticket. The Commissioners, with whom lay the duty of summing up the re turns, happen to be all Democrats. Beaten at the polls, what was more natural or easy for Democratic officers than to ignore the popular choice, proceeding coolly to elect their own favorites by the familiar method of doctoring the ballots. But even a Dem ocrat won't stand too much ot that sort of thing in Virginia, and the Whiff, an able journal of the opposition, protests against these illegal proceedings, denouncing them as without a shadow of authority. The mi nority ticket thus electioneered into place is declared "not to be worth the paper it is written on, and should be universally repu diated." We commend the honest candor of this Virginia Democrat, as an example for the Democracy of our Somerset, or Westmoreland, or Philadelphia districts. Pittsburgh Gazette. IIomkNkwspapehs. We have on more than one occasion given our reasons why it is not only the paramount duty of every community to give a willing and substantial support to its local newspapers, but also why it is the best policy. The Xew York Tribune gives the following sensible and comprehensive views on this subject : Nothing is more common than to hear people talk of what thty pay newspapers for advertising, tic, us so much given in charity. Newspapers by enhancing the value 01 property in tneir neignnornoou, ana giving the localities in which they are pub lished a reputation abroad benefit all such, particularly if they arc merchants or real estate owners, thrice the amount yearly of the meagresum they pay for their support. Besides every public spirited citizen has a laudable pride in having a paper of which he is not ashamed, even though he should pick it up in New York or Washington. A good looking, thriving sheet helps pro perty, gives character to the locality, and in many respects S a desirable public conven ience. If from any cause the matter in the local or editorial columnsshould not be up to your standard, do not cast it aside and pro nouce it good for nothing, until satisfied that there has been no more labor bestowed upon it than is paid for. If you want a good readable sheet it must be supported and it must not be supported in a spirit of charity either, but because you feel a necesiity to support it. The local press is the power that moves the people. It is announced that the great Papal Council will proclaim the dogma of the in fallibility of the head of their Church, on the 29th of June. From the' same day, will date a more general disbelief in its just foundations, than ever yet led the world or disturbed the Roman Church. In all the nineteen centuries, there could be found no bolder challenge to Christian enlightenment. Exchange. Congress is about to proclaim the neu trality of the United States in the contest between Spain and Cuba, A resolution, instructing the-Executive to demand prompt indemnity from the Spanish government for outrages upon American citizens, will in all probability be passed before the adjourn ment of Congress. The World, the Issachar of the Demo critic party, accepts with commendable pa tience the pre-Adamite platform of the Ohio Democracy. It is rather unprofitable food, but it is not the first bunch of thistles which our contemporary has been forced to eat. Col. John W. Forney declines to have his name used in connection with the candidacy for the next Governorship of Pennsylvania. He says that he has "not the slightest am bition for any office whatsoever." $14,301,902 47 are the figures which rep resent the decrease of the public debt for the month of May. The total decrease since the advent of the present Administration has been $103,069,630 16. An exchange says: "Rev. Levi Little, of Ridgway, Elk county, is a candidate for Congress in opposition to Judge Scofield, in the Nineteenth District. It will amount to verylittle." The Chicago Post says if O'Xeil had been smart, he'd have been out of Burlington jail before now, on a plea of temporary insanity.

The unfortunate Fenians who are tarving on the border are getting plenty of advice but no bread. The Commissioner of Internal Revenue has ap proved a design for a new two cent stamp for hank checks. A complete statement of tbe late Fenian raid gives eleven killed and seven wounded, three mortally. The latest addition to the ehoo-fly collection has appeared in San Francisco in the shape ef a pony with two tails. Two young women turned out with spades and hoes and paid their road tax in the the town of Beleit, the other day. Oar devil declares that he is so fond of his girl that he rubbed the akin from off his nose by kis sing her shadow on the wall. The BostonPo.it says: A Wisconsin gentleman sat dvwn on a bee-hive the other day. He regrets the thinness of his trousers. A Missouri drover has hogs so fat that to find out where their heads are it is necessary to beat them and judgo by the squeal. One of the "latest fashions" among the ladies is, round hats, three stories high, with cupalo and balcony, and a flag at half mast. A Norwich, has batched a chicken with one bead, two bodies and four legs. The head has got all that it can do to pick up food sufficient for two bodies. "When he shot at me the third time," said California teauiste r, "I began to think he meant business, ao I up with my rifle and put a bullet throngh his head. A secret order, with ritual, signs and grips, called the Earthquake, has originated in Tipton, Ind. Its object and purpose are unknown Dem ocratic, of course. A little girl seven years old, was asked in one of oar schools what she would be when she 'grew up. "A wife," was tbe quick reply. No idea of being an old maid. Tbe reason the monument In Washington is not finished is because they don't want it. The only monument any one needs in the National Capital is a monument of patience. James Black, of Washington, Arkansas, now an old man and hopelessly blind, made the original knife, according to a plan furnished him by the celebrated Colonel Bowie. The coal fields of Illinois are estimated to con tain 1,277,500,600 tons of coal, (six times as much as Great Brituin) and one third of ail the coal measures ef North America. Beth Boyden, a famous scrawberry raiser, said if bo could live twenty years be would produce a strawberry as large as a pineapple, and as deli cious as the best field strawberry. A Massachusetts man, who had never before seen the elephant, insisted, when a circus proces sion passed through his town last week, that the elephant was walking backward. Two more Fenian officers, Fitzpatrick and Mo- Neil, were arrested by the U. S. Marshal, at Ma lone. Several New Yerk reporters have also been arrested as Fenians and tent to prison. Increasing tne business .at tbe railroad. If correctly informed, on Thursday night last an extra accommodation train, and a goodly num ber of passengers, arrived.at the depot. A man named Jones, in Troy, told bis wife to pour a little Kerosene in tbe stove and the fire would kindle quicker. Mr Jones broke up house keeping that morning before breakfast. No stateary that the rich man ever placed in his window is to be compared with the little ex pectant face pressed against the windew pane, watching for "papa," when his day's labor is done. Dakotah clamors for flhool-m'a3, but young- ladies averse to matrimony should notacsept tbe situation. The average duration of single life after their arrival in the Territory is only three days. Victor Emannel is in a bad way. His physi cians do not allow him to drink wine or eat meat. Another apoplectic fit would, it is feared, put an end to his eventful life, and place upon the throne tbe unpopular Prince Humbert. Ecuador journals defend LopeZj and say that "the death of the heroio President of Paraguay has the appearance of an assassination, which if unexplained satisfactorily, will even cover the victory of Aguidaban with the blackest stain of inhumanity to the conquered." The Nevada City Gazette of May 21st says: Mr. Aahburne, of Scotch Flat, informs ns tbat tbe immense slide on their claim is still moving forward as regularly as a glacier. The mass thus moving is about 2,040 feet long by 500 feet wide ; depth unknown. The moving mass ocea pies about 24 acres of surface. . A National Bank at Erie is invited into our Federal Court, to answer npon a quo warranto to charges of illegal practices which if proved should forfeit its charter. The case has been for some time under discussion in banking circles, and will now have the careful attention which is to establish it or disprove it. The Warren Mail says: A weman was put off the cars here tbe other day because she had no money. She begged enough to get drunk with, became troublesome and was ohucked into jail by constable Davis She plead insanity. Why net treat an insane weman like insane McFarland, and let her go? This is another outrage on "wo men's rights." Though the shipping bill lost the support of the Protectionists at the close, its defeat was clearly a triumph of tbe Republican free trade interest, which fought the measure with the at most obstinacy. The scene waa quite exciting all through tbe debate, and there is great rejoicing at tbe result among the British importing and steamship agents, who are in Washington in force. An enterprising American has startled all Italy by a proposition to lease Mount Vesuvius. He says he will make roads and lay out pleasure grounds npon its rocky sides, build hotels and set op soda fountains on its summit, and help vis itors up and down by machinery. To pay him for all this outlay, and amass a fortune besides, he will charges small admission fee from all who wish te step up and see the show. . Writing of George Francis Train and his Feni an bloviation, a correspondent of the New York Star says: "The Herald says he .is worth five million dollars and has given five dollars.
