CLEARFIELD, PA., OCT. 19, 1S70.
Fernaudo Wood paid hid first income tax,
this year. -
The rumored resignation of Secretary
Cos, of the Interior Department, is current.
Mr. Delano will probably succeed Mr. Cox.
A boiler explosion on the lUh, in Lowell,
Mass., resulted in the death of five per
eons. Five or six others will probably die
from injuries received.
West Virginia claims the first snow of
the season, an indefinite quantity having
fallen at Kiugwood, as the local paper says,
on the 4th of October.
Mr. Ludwig Kurtz, a venerable editor,
died at his home in Aaronsburg, on Sep
tember 22d, aged 8" years. He was prob
ably the oldest editor in the United States.
Robert E. Lee, the commander of the
late rebel army, of Northern Virginia, died
at Lexington, in that State, on Wednesday
morning, October 12th, in ths 64th year of
his age.
The Altoona post office was broken into,
last week, and rob? ed of ? 1.500 in stamps
and registered letters. No blame is attach
ed to the postmaster. The thieves are a ill
at large. -
A returned Californian, named Christopher
Herbert, of Greenburg, was robbed, on
Monday night, of $3.K0 by two Chicago
" confidence men, while leaving the Pitts
burgh depot for his home.
.
Twelve laborers were killed at New
Castlc-upon-Tyne, England, on the 15th,
by the tailing of a new iron ship, upon
which they were working. Twenty-eight
others were badly hurt, most of whom will
likely die.
We natice that some of the Democratic
papers are very jubilant over the result of
the recent election in certain isolated pre
cincts. Well, let the poor fellows rejoice,
for it is a long time since they had an op
portunity to do so.
liovernor riurrtuaii, ot Hew Y-jis., Iiarlng
been solicited to appoint delegates to a pro
posed "National Convention at Cincinnati, to
consider the question of the removal ot the
National Capitol," refuses to make such an
appointment as no authority is vested in
him to do so. This plainly indicates that
New York is averse to the proposition of
removal.
The Hon. John C. Kunkcl, died at his
residence in Harriaburg, on Friday last,
aged about 5G years. He was a member of
both the Senate and the House, in the State
legislature, several terms. M-i was also
twice elected a member of Congress, where
he served with distinction. Mr. K. was
highly respected by all who intimately knew
him.
Certain Democratic journal sneer at the
return of "conscience money" to the Treas
ury. Such a thiug was never heard of du
ring the old regime; not because there was
not plenty of money that ought to have
been returned, but because those old Deic
cratic officials preferred cash to a calm and
quiet conscience. They were hardened sin
ners. An exchange says: "Ward Heccher, ac
eirding to old-school orthodoxy, has gone
and apostatised by giving up the brimstone
theory in ret-pect to future punishments.
We care uot whether the fuel be brimstone
or benzine. It mut be one or the other.or
Democracy never will get justice. One of
the two is a political necessity. Nitro gly
cerine might do.if it didn't gooff so quick."
Upon Learing of the death cf R. E. Lee,
a custom house officer at Savannah lowered
the U. S. flag to half mast. When the
collector of the port learned the fact, he
ordered the flag at full mast a'ain, which
created some excitement. Secretary Bout
well being notified of the state of affairs,
approved the action of the collector. Lee
for four years did his best to dishonor and
disgrace the old flag, and never apologized
for doing so, and to have lowered it as a
mark of respect to his memory would have
been simply idiotic. The inference is very
fair, that the custom-house official who is
so poor a custodian of his country's flag as
to lower it on the death of a rebel, is likely
just as poor a keeper of its funds, and should
be removed at once.
There being rumors current, of another
contemplated Fenian raid upon Canada,
President Grant has issued a proclamation
forbidding all citizens of the United States
from engaging in such unlawful enterprises
against a peaceful neighbor, under a full
penalty of the laws. If ,he Fenians really
indulged in anticipations ol another raid
upon Canada, or have formed a plan
of invading Ireland itself, their ardcr would
suddenly be somewhat chilled by this rath
er unexpected proclamation of the Presi
dent. It is scarcely probable in view of
this energetic action of President Grant,
that the Irish will ever again venture their
lives in such foolhardy acd fruitless expedi
tions as they matured during the last few
yeara. Their only hope was in the conni
vance, or at least the countenance, of (he
National authorities, in all ,heir raids.
This they can, no longer expect the proc
lamation dispela all such hopes. Exit, Fe-pianum.

The Election.
The political contest in Pennsylvania is
over, and the result is now pretty accurately
known. The Republicans have lost several
ntPintwrii r,f rvrnrre.;s. in close districts, but
still retain a majority of the delegation. The
Republicans also lose a State Senator and
several members of the Houe, yet the result
leaves working majority in both branches
of the Legislature, which is all that we could
reasonably ask. We sum up ths result in
the State at follows :

The Result in Clearfield County.
In another column, wc publish the official
return ot this couuty. For Congress, the
vote stands, Scofield, 1371, Marvin 2008,
Democratic majority 1237 an increase of
21 over Packer's majority of last year. The
vote polled on Tuesday last ij 83 less than
in 1S60 the Republican vote failing short
428, and the Democratic 407. This result
is owing partly to the inclemency of the
weather the drizzling rain and the cool
air prevailing most of the day, causing ma
ny to remaiu at home who otherwise would
have been at the polls. The Republican
party being in au almost hopeless minority
is this county having no prospect of elect
ing any part of their local ticket, and hence
no special incentive to activity seldom, if
ever, poll near their full strength, except at
important National or State elections. Rat
this thou! J not be so. No matter how un
important tha contest may seem to many,
every voter should !e at the polls and cast
his ballot for the candidates of the party.
If this were dosie, it would not bn -many
years until the county would when! into the
Uepublican rai;k. We hope our friends
will remember this, and act accordingly in
tt lnT!i't. "F.teni;! vi-'ii.-ri-.; is the price
of liberty," and constant activity will lead
to political victory.
"You Lie," Eu? The editor of the
IZepublican in his issue of September 2Sth,
asserted that "Barlow Chase, the "Inde
" pendent candidate for Sheriff, " was the
" intsrutnont of eorne of the old Kuow
" Nothing hags who are too cowardly, or
politic to boldly avow their old heresy
" about Americans and foreigners." In
the Journal of October 5th we repelled
this vile aspersion,, and in proof suted,
among other facts, that Mr. Chase's "hand
bills were printed in the Kcjjullicun office."
This, the editor of that paper, in his issue
of October 12th, dei.iei iu the following
CHASTE AND C.ENTJ.L5IANLY (?) STYLK :
"And we ar compello'l ti dny it in the c!.i
Jie language of the celebrate! J.i.ralUt, Iora;e
'ireelcy. -Vou !ie. yoa villi. in. you lie! an uo
honorable. bighDiinica man will deal iucuca na
ked untruths.11
A hem 3 That's a very positive denkl
for a "hkjhminded man ;" but is his dec
laration true?
One of the "handbills" referred to, is in
our possession. Will this "highiuinded
man" go before an officer authorized to ad
minister an oath, and swear that it was not
printed in his office? We dare him to do
so ! But he may decline to do this upon,
the plea that, if it was printed in his office,
it was without his knowledge and content.
This will not free him from the vile slander
uttered against us. Nay ! He dare not
swear to beisig ignorant of the fjet before
giving publicity to his wilful, vindictive and
malicious aspersion, lest that it might sub
ject him to the charge of perjury. And
now, we leare an intelligent and discrimina
ting public to judge as to who is guilty of
uttering a "!i !" jnly affording tha editor
of the Repuhtican an opportunity to prove
his assertions true upon his oath, or make
an honorable retraction.
A Deserted Compliment. On Thurs
day evening last on learning of the inten
ded departure on the next day, IVidav, of
II. B. Swoopc, E.-q., with his family, to
his future home in Allegheny county the
Osceola and Clearfield Cornet Binds, as
corapanicd by many citizens, paid the com
pliment of a serenade. Mr. S. responded
in his usual terse and happy style briefly
referring to the many pleasant associations
enjoyed during a residence of seventeen
years in this county, and thanked the mem
bers of the several bands, and the citizens,
for the honor conferred on the occasion.
Mr. Swoope is a man of fine talents and of
superior legal attainments. His removal
from this place is much regretted by our
citizens generally, but more especially by
the Republican party throughout the coun
ty, who highly esteemed him as an ener
getic leader and ardent co laborer in the in
terest of American industry and American
advancement. May success attend him in
his new home, politically and financially, is
the sincere hope of all who most intimately
know Mr. S., and who appreciate his many
fine trans of character, and admire his so
cial and genial disposition.
Baine'. i most desperate effort to break
away from Metz was made on the 7th inst.,
and was promptly thwarted after a bloody
battle. A detailed description reveals the
boldness and persistence with which Bazaine
struggles ; but.it also teljs how hcpeluss are
his strongest efforts.

The Democratic Eiots in Philadelphia.
Shall we never have done with Demo
cratic r:ots and frauds in our large cities?
For years pat both Philadelphia and New
York have beea disgraced by them. On
Tuesday last, during the progress of the
polling in one of the precincts of the Fourth
ward, Philadelphia, the Billy M' Mullin
roughs carried matters to such a fearful
extent as to stop the voting, and made such
a display of belligerent intention as to coin
pel the peaceful citizens to appeal to Marshal
Gregory for protection; and that officer,
thus appealed to. exercised the power given
him by act of Coiigrrss, and called upon
the commandant of the Navy 'ard for
military force to overawe the rioters and
protect the citizens in the free and unob
structed exercise of the right of suffrage.
The marines ordered on this duty, in com
pliance with the Maifchal's request, were
not marched to the polls, but quartered near
enough to ant promptly in case of extreme
emsigency. The Marshal simply performed
his duty in this case, as he was sworn to do;
and yet, the Democratic press of the city
and country have joined iu a general burst
of well feigned indignation against the act,
as an infringement of the rights ot the citi
zens, a violation of the laws, and an outrage
upon the freedom of elections. This, of
course, is only an attempt to create politic
capital, for the very presses that are most
virulent iu their abuse ot the Marshal are
consious that he adopted the only measure
which couli have quelled the riot and kept
the polls open.
If anything additional to the riotous
proceedings of Billy M'Mulliu's bruisers on
Tuesday were needed to confirm us in the
opinion that Marshal Gregory acted wisely
as well as firmly in calling out the marines
to compel order, we find abundance in the
subsequent outrageous conduct of the same
class of Democratic ruffians at the meeting
ol the return judges of Philadelphia. There
Democratic rowdyism and disregard of iaw,
and even life itself, were displayed in their
most violent and dangerous forms. The
same devilish spirit that moved the ruffians
to oairage at the polls, incited their brother
ruffians to violence when Mr. Mann was ad
mitted into the Supreme Court room, where
the return judges met. It had been pre
viously determiud by the judges to ad:nit
Mr. Maun, on the Republican, and Mr.
Cassiday, on tha Democratic si b, for the
purpose of consulting them on law points
connected with the return; and Mr. Oasiday
not being present when the judges mot, the
Democratic bullies who had gathered iu
considerable number around the door, took
it upon themselves to prevent the entrance
of Mr. Mann. He slipped in, however,
along with tha judges, iu spite of Johnny
Ahern's exclamation, "Nobody bat a judge
goes in here." And then the evil passions
of the crowd broke forth. Ahem made
violent attempt.-! to force himself in, but wu ;
forced Lack, with some injury to his counte
nance, and tne doorc::.?ea an J locLcd. isut
this afforded only a temporary defense to
those within the room. The door was soon
broken into fragments with blackjacks, and
and the roughs rushed in pell-mell. Then
ensued a scene of confusion and wild disor
d;r. Johnny Ahem, Shay Nolan, Bill,
M'Mullin, Sam. Josephs, Bob Listet Smith
and othar le tiers, acs3iupain-jj by their
band of ruffians, took possession ; chairs and
spittoons were flung about promiscuously,
ani some of the roughs attempted to seize
the returns. Curses both "loud" and
"deep" were uttered, and "confusion worse
coufouu led," reigned as erst it did iu hell.
About thi3 time Nol.in hurl-'d a spittoon at
th-s Lend of Crawford, one of the return
jji0-e-, aijd he in turn drew a pistol and
shot Nolan dangerously in the neck. The
blood floAed freely from the wound, the
sight of hich caused a pause in the icelce,
and Constable Curly entering about this
time, succeeds! in restoring order and clear
ing the room of intruders. Shortly after
ward, both Mr. Mann nd Mr. Cassiday
being present, the board resumeil business.
A difficulty occurred on account of the judge
from the Twenty-sixth ward having no offi
cial returns. He presented the election
figures on loose slips of paper without the
signatures of the judges. The President of
the Board refuse 1 to receive this, and on
the advice of Messrs. Mann and Casiiday,
the case was 'akeu before Judge Allison.
We have not room to notice the proceed
ings before him further than to say he gave
the judges advice in regard to the proper
manner of proceeding under the circum
stances, and we presume they acted in accord
ance with it. .
How disgraceful is this ruffianly conduct
of the Democracy! What a stain it leaves
upon the city of Philadelphia and especial
ly upon the Mayor aud police, who either
were not able, or did uot desire to preserve
order aud the good name of the city. Who
will say, after reading the full accounts of
these ruffianly outrages of the Democracy,
that the conduct of Marshal Gregory in call
ing out the marines-is not fully justifiable?
The Indians. The report received from
the Special Commissioners, who met the
Indians of several tribes, including the
Lheyonnes, Ogallallas and Miunecojous, to
the number of several thousand, near Fort
Laramie, lately, arc favorable to the preser
vation of peace. Red Cloud and all the
others are said to appear satisfied and friend
ly, and desirous of maintaining friendly
relations. The result of other like confer
ences in formeryears forbid too much impor
tance to be attached to this promise. Win
ter is n jt distant, auJ the red men are al
ways willing to enter it with abundant cloth
ing and provisions. But the possibility of
a quiet winter on the frontier aud Plains is
something, and the hope of having a long
series of Indian troubles ended will be ac
ceptable to all.
The War. Nothing of a very definite
character has transpired at the seat of war
during the past week. Bazaine is still in
Metz. Siossons has been surrendered to
to the Prussians with 4,000 prisoners, and,
it is reported, that the bombardment of
Paris was commence.! on Friday last. This
is the tubstance of the cable dispatches
since our last issue, but we anticipate some
Ciciting events in a few days.
Affairs in China, as far as foreigners are
concerned, are in a most unsausiaciory con
dition. The latest items of uews from the
Celestial Empire are somewhat contradic
tory, but their general drift is apparent
enough. There have been no massacres of
Christians since the frightful butchery at
Tien tsin, but the inhabitants of Pckiu have
destroyed the Roman Catholic Church
buildings in that city ; and, more important
than all, the outhorities are unwilling, or
else powerless, to force the people to respect
the lights of foreigners, which can only be
done by giving the latter adequate military
protection. This, perhaps, the Mandarins
dare not do for fear of the superstitious
prejudices of the populace. The Chinese
question is becoming a serious one, one that
will have to be settled by the united efforts
of all the civilized nations who have citizens
or subjects reuiding in the laud of the Mon
golians. The Red. River correspondent of the St.
Paul Dailv Press, sends that paper an ac
count of the wanton murder by the Cana
dians aud partisans of Schultz, at Winnipeg,
cf Isadore Goules. It seems that he was
pointed out as a sympathizer with Riel ;
was chased, beaten, and driven into the
Red River, where, whilo trying to swim
away from his pursuers, he was assultcd
with stones, and his assassins were not
satisfied until their victim had sunk. The
same correspondence contains an account of
the horse whipping of Mr. Spence. the edi
tor of the Xattox, by Dr. Schultz, and
of the attempt to murder a Catholic priest.
1 1 is feared that these high handed measures
are but the initial proceedings of a reign of
terror in that section.
The German astronomers and physicists
have, alter prolonged observation, arrived
at the conclusion that the nioou is a dead
planet; that is, that it has "cooled off,"
and is now without heat, water or attnos-
plr-jre, and consequently without life of any
kind. The earth is undergoing the same
process, according to these learned philoso
phers, and will eventually be without life or
light. Bat we who now live may take no
fears to heart on that account, as the earth
can cool off, say the geologists, only at the
rate of fifteen degrees in nine million years.
The reported .vacoess of the Germans at
Orleans is augmented by their own official
reports. They claim that Orleans was car
ried by storm, and that l.),003 prisoners
were taken. It is apparent that a large
French force is fathering on the Loire,
south of Orleans, and it is also as clear that
the Germans mean to attack it. The defeat
of this army would be almost fatal to the
French cause, aud would throw the whole
south-west open to the ravages of the Ger
man Uhlans.
The expenses of the war are reckoned by
Dr. G. Ilirth as follow: Cot of the mili
tary aciion of Germany, 1,210 uiillionsof
francs ; direct losses, 1,230 millions ; indirect
losses, 2,J50 millions j war compensation for
the conquered territory, Alsace and Lorraine,
especially Strasburg, 200 millions. Total,
4,930 millions of francs.
The libtary buil tings of the Detroit,
(Mich.) Mechanics' Society are worth
550,000. The list of membership contains
only one h indred and ninety-one names.
The initiation fee is $5, and the annual dues
$1. The property was donated to the Soci
ety iu 182S by the Common Council.
Fifty-one Indians of the Winnebago tribe
