Saftsman's $mmtal. B.J. UOW, BDITOR ASDrROPRlKTOll. CLEARFIELD, PA., NOV. 16, 1870. Gold sold in New York, on Friday last, at 1 10. The Republican majority in Louisiana is ircia 15,000 to 20,000. In Delaware, at the election last week, there was much rioting, and a number of perions reported .shot-. Delaware ia Demo cratic, of course. It is rumorned that Chief Justice Chase, owing to his continued ill health, will short ly resign. Judge Carter, it is said, will be offered the place. , We received an advance copy of the "Annual Report of the Trustees and Su perintendent of the State Lunatic Asylum of Pennsylvania," for 1S70. It is an inter eeting document. Hoffman's majority in New York City is 20,OiK) less than it was in 18GS, notwith standing that thousands of illegal votes were cast for him by vepeaters. This is an encouragiog sign to the Republicans of New York, and of the whole country. Frauds in elections will soon be at a discount, we hope. Democracy and deviltry go hand in hand. On last Tuesday, a crowd of roughs destroy ed the ballot-boxes and ballots in Newton towuship, NewJJersey, and shot two colored men. But the polls were re-opened and the rioters arrested. May they receive the full measure of punishment their ciiuies merit. The Quebec Independent wants Canada to protect herself against the United States by building fortifications aluug the entire border. The success of France in the for tification business cannot be very encoura ginn to our neighbors, who will save money as well as secure permanent protection by joining the United State. The election of Henry WaMron. in the First Congressional district of Michigan, is a triumph of Protection over Free Trade. The canvas was conducted on this issue, and a bold stand and an open boast were made by the so-called reformers. The re sult is sadly acuinst the general opiuion that free trade reigns supreme in the Great West. The franking privilege in to be ventilated again at the next session of Congress. The postmaster general is preparing evidence to show what a waste of transportation and sppce is chargeable to the privilege mem bers of the government have of sending their letters, soiled linen, books and bulkier parcels free of postage. It would appear that they use the mails a. if they were hu manitarian express companies. The Philadelphia Fres fays : Right and left, wherever Demoeartic gains are report ed, comes the old stoiy of riolc-uee and fraud and wrong. In New Jersey, Dela ware and Maryland, the lines of ignorance have been held only by the aid of defiant crime, and every transient an 1 local success of the Democratic party has been gained at the expense of civil liberty. How fortunate that the whole couutry is spared bueh a fate. The "heathen Chinee" accoiding to the census returns of San Francisco, have at least one blessing attached to the heathen ism which would be wise fur all nations to copy. There are in that city 11,817 Chi tiese and all ean read and write. Thare are only 9 Americans who can neither real nor write, while there are 6.7S5 of the Irish population in the snme blissful state of in telligence a good material out of which to turke Democratic voters. We see it etated that Judge Agncw voted ith the Democratic Judgas for tha re p ; iiuinent of James R Snowden, as Pro triunotary for the Eastern district of IVnn . yvauia a man whom he had publicly de nounced for criminally issuing fraudulent naturalization papers in the interest of the J'omocratic party. If this be true, it is an i:naccountab!e procedure, and should receive the hearty condemnation of every Republi can in the State. The party vhie'i elected Judge Agnew expects better thing at his bauds, than that he should vote for a man who had done so much to fraudulently de feats its candidates. Such ingratituda is unworthy a Judge of the Supreme Court, and should be sufficient justification to ask Lis resignation. The friends of protection to American iudustry have reason for roj.icing over the lesult of the election in the several States, last week. According to the sum iiia n, it is evident the great expectations of Le free traders have come to naught. In New Jersey we hare gained one Congressman, and in Minnesota one. In the Firt dis trict of Michigan, where a most determined free trade opposition yras made to the regu lar Republican nominee, we have elected him by an increased majority. Donnelly, the restless Philadelphia politician, who Bought to divide our ranks on this issue in Minnesota, has been overwhelming! de tected, while in ew York the Hon. Ho p " f race Greeley made a noble rnn frv traArm. aJ T, . - ,, - "uti uu -L'uiuLnji at, uiui vuuiu nave defeated him but for the factious opposition of a few malcontents. Our industries are afe in the band of the Forty-second Con cress. The Republican Party. How well President Grant has redeemed his promises to keep down the expenditures and collect the revenue of the nation we have often taken occasion to show"; but the fact may usefully be kept before the people. Briefly, then, the comparison, or rather the contrast, between the tr o last fiscal years stands as follows: Increased receipts, $48, 2G3.321 ; drecreased expen Jitures.$27, 150, 080; total, $75,422,402. Decreased receipts $4,345,389 ; increased expenditures,, 342, 992 ; total, $6,6GS,382, being a clear gain by larger collections and reduced expendi tures of $03,734,020. These are the bare facts, but in order to give a clearer view, to such persons as avc not in the habit of thinking of money by millions of dollars, of the great saving that has been made to the Treasury of the Uni ted States in tLe 1 ist fiscal year over the ore precedicg it, Gen. Spinner makes the state ment that after deducting tifty-two Sundays and four legal holidays from the 3G5 days leaving 309 executive days in the year a saving of $f8,734,O20 was made ; that the average saving on the working days of the fiscal year, that closed with June 30, 1S70, over those of the yetir preceding, was over $224,240 per day, being otct $9,263 per hour, over $154 per minute, being more than equal to the extra dropping of $2 50 into tho coffers of the Treasury in every second of the time. These facts sufficient ly explain how the Administration, by thor ough action and an economical course, was entitled to purchase so large an amount of the stocks of the United Stac3 for the sinking fund. We ak Republicans, we a-.k all "candid citizens of whatever rioiilieal creed, did any government in the worli ever make so satisfactory an exeibit of good work done in the way of reform and economy? Is net the administration worthy of a renewed ex pression of your conSdenee and support? Such an expression can only be practically made by voting the Republican ticket. Constitutional Convention. A draft of an act to provide for a Conven tion to revise the Constitution of this State is published in some of the papers. It proposes to niukit the Convention consist of 135 members 32 to be eleoto-J as "mem bers at large of convention," each voter to deposit a ticket coataining oniy 16 names, an. I the 32 persons having the highest num ber of votes to be declared elected, thus providing for a minority representation in said convention. The balance of the State is divided into districts, electing 103 persons as "District members of convention," the districts being so formed that the minority will also elect a fair proportion of the mem bers. The counties of Cie.iHr:!,!, Clarion, Cameron, Forest and Elk, (the 231 St:r;:ito rial district), to eleet two members, each voter to east a ballot tor one person. The eleetion to be held ond the first Tuesday in June next, and the convention to meet on the first Tuesday of September following ; provided, however, that each elector is priv ileged to cast a ballot "for" or "against" the holding of such convention, and if a majority of the votes cast are "for" a con vention, the said convention shall be hold en, but if a majority be "against" it, then all proceedings under this act to be uull and void. It is evident to every reflecting srind tbat a convention to revise our State Constitution is necessary, that necessity, in one instance at least, growing out of an amendment to the Constitution of the Un ited States made r.eccs.sary by the late re bellion in the South. The proposed act above referred to ij, perhaps, as fair a one as could bs devised, and is worthy the care ful consideration of the people throughout the State, and of the members of the Leg islature when prss';nteJ for thoir coniiicra tiou aud adontion. The State Elections. Elections were held, last week, in Arkan sas, Louisiana, Alabama, Delaware, Flori da, Illinois, K-nas, Kentucky, Maryland, Ma.aehusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mis souri, New York, Now Jersey, Nevada, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Virginia aud Wisconsin. The general result in these States, for numbers of Congress, foots up HI Rupublicrns to 52 Damocrats. Already 222 members of the Forty second Congress have been elected, of whieh the Republicans have 1 1!) and the Democrats 82 rcpublic.iu majority CS. The States yet to vote will elect 21 mem bers, which will rot, however, materially change the result. Although the Republicans have lost their two-thirds vote in Congress, yet thev have a c'e&r working majority, for all practical pui poses. The Republicans carried New Jersey by a handsome majority, mr.de large gains in New York, Kentucky, Maryland, and seve ral other Stat2S, whtoh h very encouraging for the supremacy of the Republican party for a number of years to come. In view of these facts, we see no good reason for the proiifi? display of poultry in the Democratic papers. But, poor fellows ! they have had so little ehatiee to air their chick'tn of late years, that it must be quite a relief to them to crow over a erumt,aiid wc have no dispo sition to deny them the opportunity. So ; crow ou. Ventilate your moth eaten feath ers, as this is likely the only chance you will have of doing so, for another decade at least. The Daily Telegraph. As the time approaches for the assembling of Congress and the Legislature, people begin to in quire for a good aud reliable paper, that will give full and accurate reports of the proceedings of these public bodies. To such of our readers as want a paper of the character referred to, we most cheerfully recommend the Ilarrisburg Daily Tele graph.

Well executed counterfeit twentv daliar hiUi on the Oneida National Bank of Utica, i rc ja circulation. Another Treason in the Legislature Hatch ing. The Hariisburg Telegraph, of November 8th, makes the lollowisg expose of a plot to defeat the Republicans in the election of Legislative office: s, at the coming session: 'Republicans of Pennsylvania! the party which through your great exertion lias just been saved from defeat, is again threatened with a greater dauger than it has yet met, through another treason far surpassing in wickedness anything heretofore plotted against its life ! Our warning of a year ago passed unheeded, because no one cou'd be brought to believe that such an enormity as we then denounced couid be successfully en acted. Yet tlie plot was carried out in ail its details. Shameful as that viiiiany was, and dangerous as were its consequences, it was virtu, us in comparison with the conspi racy now being hatched, and it was harmless in comparison with the destruction which now awaits our party, and will surely over whelm it, if the Press and tbe People do not come at once to the rescue ! "To recover control of the Treasury of the State which had been torn from their grasp for a year the only year in a dozen in which they had not fattcued on illegal use of the money of the people a corrupt gang having its head in Ilarrisburg and its agents all over the State, bought up enough in am bers of the Legislature to join the Copper heads and defeat the nominee of the Re publican party. Last winter this gang eave the Democracy everything its leadersde manded as the price of Democratic assist ance to break our power down in the Legis lature ; and the evil consequences of that corrupt bargain and sale are shown in a de creased majority in both Houses now. "This reduced majority now makes a rep etition of the treason easier, and it is al ready being arranged ! The price the Dem ocratic leaders now demand for voting for a creature, of this gang of plunderers, in the upjiortioiiment of the State, for the next ten years, in the interest of the Democratic party ! W. W. IRWIN, NOW STATE TREAS urer, openly announces that he has the tlkdoks of eleven republican members of the leg isletll'.e yvii.mnu to consumate this crime ii-' the democrats will j:in them in defeating whoever the Republicans shall nominate for State Treasurer, and give the Treas ury VULTURES ANOTHER YEAR TO PREY ON the people! A prominent Democrat has admit led the existence of this plot to the writer of this warning ; he has discussed ir. with us ; be approves it; and announced that he would support, applaud and defend the Democrats who agreed to stand by the bargain ! Is it necessary to argue coneern ing the dangers which surround our organi zation? Can any one doubt its extent cr its nearness ? .''We realize the crisis, and we have again given warning ! Apathy or incredulity will render the treason easy and invite its au thors to consun ate it. But aD indignant protest by the press, and the constituents ot the men who propose to betray their party and that alone will save us. Our share o! this duty shall be performed : but all must come to the rescue, and act now." The Pittsburg Dixputch, iu view of the above expose of the possible bolt of a few dUoriauizimj munbers from the regular Republican nominees, remarks: "The objection to pcr-or,s deserting the caucus nominations is, that it tends to break up party organization. This should, by all means, be avoided. Tbe Republican party has too great a wo; k in this State ia the im mediate future to fritter away its strength of organization at. the bidding of the Dem ocratic party. We trust that staunch Re publicans in various parts of the State will impress very strongly upon tbe minds of ihe members, that to support a bolt, in this exigency, will seal their political death. The re-districting of the State, and various important measures demand party unitv. Therefore a break should not be tolerated at any point. Let every person who is a competitor for office go before tbe caucus and put forth every possible effort there, and then abide the re.-ult. Thia, and this alone, is fair and honorable." We hope the suggestions of tbe Dispatch will be earnestly heeded aud aetol upon by ti e Republicans in every part of the State. The latest news from the city of Mex:co tclU a very sad tale of the Sate of affairs in that country. To a Id to the difficulties of th situation Presideut Juarez was taken suddenly ill, and fears were entertained that if he died a general revolution would be the result. It is only a few days since the tele graph informed us that the Mexican repub lic was quiet ; but now things are changed, and a storm of revolution has broken out all over. Juarez' illness, no doubt, has con tributed much to all this, and there is no knowing where it is going to stop. Mexico, instead of growing better, would seem to be getting worse.

Aside ft om all reinforcements, this will be the third army dispatched since the Cubans proclaimed their independence. More has been accomplished within the last few months toward conquering tbe insurgents than all of the previous time, and it would seem that if Spain can equip aud sustain so many troops she may re establish an undis puted authority.
