aftsimm's Jmirnal. . 1. BOW, ID1TOBASD PROPRIETOR. CLEARFIELD, PA., FEB. 8, 1871. Three of the Benninghoff bond robbers are now doing duty in the penitentiary. The State Treasurer, Gen. Irwin, on Feb. 1st, paid the semi annual interest on the Pennsylvania State debt, amounting to nearly a million dollars. The IlunUviile (Texas) Republican takes strong grouud against general amnesty, and urges that uch a measure is fraught with great danger. W ill the advocates of general amnesty heed the warning? The bill before the Ohio Legislature, making the reading of the Bible in the public schools unlawful, failed to pass the House by a vote f 75 to 14. Pretty wel' done, lor a Democratic majority. Republican Victory. At the special election in the Seventeenth Legislative Dis trict, on Wednesday last. Mr. E. Howard Griffith, Republican, was elected in the 'place of Mr. Campbell, deceased. The district was Democratic last fall. The Saint Aothony, Minn., Democrat, nominates Jerry Black, of Pennsylvania, for President, and Senator Thunnan, of Ohio, for Vice President, and ibinkj they can be elected. We think the Democrat is simply mistaken about being "elected." Ex-Gov. Ashley, of Montana, is of th opinio that if Judge Chase's health is good enough, nothing can prevent his election to the Presidency next year, without much re gard to the party that takes him up. Is Mr. Ashley's opinion better than that of anybody else? When the Delaware Democrats serenaded Eli Saulsbury, their new Senator, he invited them to an entertainment conducted on strict temperance principles. What a great disappointment that would be to those who havft been accustomed to imbibe freely, at the the expense cf Eli's brother, after an election. Secretary Boutwcll's debt statement for January is a splendid financial exhibit. The decrease last month .amounted to $4,040,90.75, and the decrease since March 1, 1870, $110,301,670. The Democracy don't like this Republican "policy" of re ducing the natiocal debt. It knocks their electioneering "thunder" all JepsEred. A bill has been introduced in thelndiana Senate providing "that a person convicted of a felonious homicide, who has entered the plea of insanity, shall be placed in an insane asylum for one year, and then if the facts warrant -it, can have a uew trial.'' The In diana insane asylum must be a large build ing if it is expected to carry out that law. The St. Louis Republican says : "General Blair, of Missouri, and General i,gan, of Illinois, each commanded a corps of Grant' army at Vicksburgh. Both had been mem bers, of Congress. Logan went into the war a Democrat, and is now a Republican Senator. Blair went in a Republican, and is now a Democratic Senator." The Re publican party didn't lose anything in that trade. The Republicans of Connecticut have de clared that Congress should "refuse all ap propriations, direct or indirect, which may be solicited in aid of private schemes and enterprises." Republicans everywhere except they happen to be in Congress have made this same a'cclaration over and over again. Congressmen who disregard the wishes of the people on this riuestion had better consider their terms of office as lim ited. The Democrats of the Ohio Legislature tabled a resolution that a messace be sent to the Governor informing him of an exist ing vacancy in Columbiana county, and re questing him to order an election to fill it. Columbiana county is strongly Republican, which accounts for the action of the Dem ocratic majority in the premise. Evidently, the Ohio Democracy have been taking a lesson from the Pennsylvania Democratic State Senators. Kentucky is about tired oat with Ku Klux operations. Senator Chenoweth has introduced resolutions in the State Legisla ture, denouncing, in unqualified terms, those miscreants, and calling for five hun dred thousand dollars, for the employment of an efficient police. Chenowesh was a "fighting rebel," and the Louisville Courier Journal say, he is backed in this effort by "the entire Confederate element of this State." And yet northern Democratic doughface don't believe it. The sentiments of the Bourbon Democ racy of Kentucky may be well estimated by an incident which occurred the other day in the Legislature of that State. The bill to grant a charter to the Southern Railroad, which is designed to connect Cincinnati with the Southern railroad system, was under discussion, when a Mr. McCreary, in the course of a bitter speech in opposition to the application for a charter, argued in sup port of his views that Cincinnati deserved no favor at the hands of the Legislature, because the press of that city ha 1 failed to publish eulogistic obituary notices of Robert E. Leo. It is only fair, however, to state that prominent Democrats. in Central Ken tucky, among jheuj John O. Breckinridge, re Btronely in favor of the proposed road. The LyndaU-Dechert Case Again. The minority report of Mr. Wallace's "special" committee, Graham and Kerr, Re publicans in the contested election case ol Lyndall vs. Dechert, clearly and uueeessfully disproves the majority report in some of the most material points, end establishes beyond controversy that Mr. Buck alew, the presum ed author of the majority, report, made a grave mistake when he alleged that if the specifications of the petition were defective and quashed, presuming all others to be'eor rect, Mr. Lyndall would have no cae to con test. The minority report proves beyond contradiction, from Mr. Buckalew's own stand-point, that Mr. Lyndall was clearly elected by over two hundred majority, and that the majority inflicted a grievous wrong when they decided not to investigate the al legations of fraud. In fact ; the minority report so conclusively exposed the fallacies and wrongs of the Buckalew report, that that gentleman deemed it necessary to sub mit a "supplementary" report au unheard of proceeding in legislative bodies. Ia re ference to this pettifoging effort, on the part of the majority of the committee, the Pitts burgh Gazette remarks . Mr. Buckalew, we see, has felt himself forced to put in a voluminous answer to the report of the minority of the Special Com mittee in the Dechert-Lyndall case. This is the highest possible compliment to the minority report. It shows that that report was, in itselt.a complete answer to the original report of the majority of the Com mittee, and that the Democratic majority in the Seuate did not daie to let the majority and minority reports go out together. The latter so thoroughly exposed the former that to send the two out in one document was to send the antidote with the bane. It was, therefore, found necessary to an swer the answer to put in some iettifoe'- ging pleas and befog the case generally, lest those Deiiiociaw oi tie Jr;ate shouiti con clude that the law was unanswerable against thorn. The Special Committee, a3 appointed by Speaker Wallace, consisted of live Demo cratic lawyers and two Republican lavuien. lhe Republican lawyers of the Senate were purposely Ic-tt off it. The object clear ly was to get up a majority report written by lawyers, which the lay members of the Committee could uot aaswer. And yet the report of the minority,fram ed by a layman and reported by laymen, so completely upset the legal case of the ma jority, and presented the law so clearly, that tbe majority were plainly put in the wrong, and the whole burden of judicial decisions in the Senate was shown to be openly and pal pably against them. So the Democratic lawyers of the Senate havebeen compelled to answer this triumph ant vindication of the minority. The an ser, it is true, is lame and inconclusive, and fails to reach a single one of tbe points made by the minority in their report; yet not to answer it. even lamelv and inconclu sively, would have been coual to lettine judgment go by default. In preseuting this second report from the majority in the Senate, howevtr. the major ity have been guilty of another breach of Parliamentary Jaw. When a Special Com mittee is appointed on a special subject, and the majority ana minority make reports on it, the jurisdiction of that Committee ends. The majority have no right to make a sec ond repot r Such a thing was never heard ot before, in any legislative body. The first report oi me mammy and the adoption by theSctiatt ot tin: resolution reported by that majority, discharged the Committee. It had no riirht to meet acain, and this second re port, in answer to the minority, was a usur pation of power and in utter defiance of all legislative practice. But then this whole case is a series of usurpations. The reference of this contes ted case to a special committee was a usar pation ; the votes of .Mr. Dechert. in favor of ordering the committee and adopting their report were usurpations; the actions of the committee in excluding the petition of the contestant was a usurpation ; the ruling of the Speaker, in allowing Mr. Dechert to vote in his own case was a usurpation : the action of the Senate, when an appeal was taken from that rulir.g, in laying that appeal on the table, was a usurpation, there being uo rule ot the senate permitting a motion to lay on the table, the uniform practice of the Senate beinjr to refuse to rccopnizo such a tnction ; and now wc have the crowning usurpation of a report from the majority in answer to the minority, after the Committee was discharge 1. lhe last act is, ol a Diece with the rest. The law of the cae, however, remains with the minority. The report of the mi nority is unanswered and unanswerable. Mr. Buckalew may pettifog and befog the case, but he cannot change the judicial decisions cited triumphantly by the minority, which show that the well ettlcd law of the State wa- against Mr. Dechert and apainst the nction of tbe Democratic majority in the Senate. A New "Poisoning" Agent. The De mocracy, it seems, have discovered a new poisvn. They now term education "poison ing the minds of the young," as will be seen from the following extract from the Demo cratic parly organ at Washington, with re ference in some proceedings of Congress: "Mr. JJoar, of .Vis-aehiisotts, then ad vocated the treat so!. erne for national edu cation which is io Le substituted for the Freedmen's and other bureaus, by furnish ing a mammoth machine to poison 'he minds of the rising generation. This is one of the most insidious and dangerous of plaos for perpetuating radical rule yet conceived by the inventive genius of New England, aud is therefore, the one that ought to be most firmly resisted." Education "poi.oning the minds of the young!" A brilliant idea, indeed. But, no doubt, a system" of liberal education will have the effect to deplete the Democratic majorities in the strong holds of that party, and hence their opposition to a system of national education. A Wonderful Man. The Pittsburgh Gazette relates the case of a wonderful man in Kentucky: "His farm was assessed at $20 per acre, and he positively refused to stand the indignity, asserting that it was worth fully $200 ptr acre. Reason had no the slightest effect upon him, but a comprot niise was finally made and the farm as sessed at $40 per acre. He had no idea of allowing hi farm to be valued that low." e have nosuch"wouderful men" in Clear field county. Here they always "con pro mise" on the smallest asses.-men t possible.

Spect that has referenet to Brainerd, when on bU recoct visit to ttii (Taca Paris and the Germans. The surrender of Paris and the signing of an armistice, has stopped all military opera tions in trance and virtually ended the war. As stated last week, the entire French gar rison of Paris, nearly half a million of men, W2re disarmed, except the National Guard, anJ the whole to remain in the city as pris oners of war, instead of being sent to camps in Germany, thus avoiding much suffering from exposure a very magnanimous act on the part of the victors. On Sunday week the German troops occupied the iorts around I ans, in accordance with the armistice, thus continuing the investment of the city intact. Although communication with the city is restricted, its revictualiug is permitted, thus putting an end to the sufferings resulting from a scarcity of food and fuel. The Gardes .Mobile ate not permitted to return home at present, as previously stated, but will remain at the capital as prisoners of war. No German troops occupy the city, as stipulated in the armistice the National Guard, composed of citizens of the capital, being deemed competent to maintain order. A Constituent Assembly is to convene 1 at Bordeaux on the 15th, which, it is confi dently hoped, will ratify the action of the Paris authorities, and that a permanent peace will speedily follow. Bourbaki's shattered army crossed into Switzerland before the news of the surren der of Paris reached it, while, at the same time, the armies of Faidherbe and Chanzy met with disastrous defeat. Pespatches from various parts of France concur in expressing a determination of the people to continue the war unless the Uer mans greatly modify their terms. Another call has been made for three hun dred thousand men, in Germany, to march on short notice, if needed in France. Notes from Harrisburgh. In the Judicial . contested election case, from Philadelphia, Judge Lynd has Loco awarded his f-cat ; Mr. Price (Democrat) Dot appearing before the Legislative committee to substantiate his claim. It seems there is considerable division of sentiment among the temperance men of this State as to the legislation needed to meet the demands of tbe times. Several propo.- itions are before the Legislature, all of which have a bearing PC tbe question, but they widely differ as to the means to gain the same end, which will likely defeat them alL In our opinion, moral suasion is the only proper and effectual way to deal with the subject. Senator Buchalew's bill for cumulative voting for school directors seems to have gone quite easily through, the effort to have certain counties exempted from its operation not proving successful. Col. Geo. F. McFarland, having resigned his position as Superintendent of Soldiers' Orphan Schools, the Governor nominated to the Senate Prof. J. P. Wiclershain, the present efficient Superintendent of Common Schools, as bis successor. Some doubts are expressed as to the policy of both offices being filled by the same gentleman. A bill is before tbe Senate providing for tbe transfer of the Soldiers' Orphans to the care of the common school department This is an important measure," and bhould receive the closest scrutiny before its consu mation. The department once abolished can never be re-established. The house passed a resolution rcquea;ing the Auditor General to furnish statement of the -amount paid for public printing and bindio during the years 1SGS, 1869 aud 1870. Some rich developments are antici pated from this action on the part of the House. Washington Oity Gossip. The dodge of the anti-appealists in ques tioning the right of the Sooate to originate a bill to repeal the income tax, may prevent the consummation of that measure during the present session of Congress. The special message of the President, transmitting a copy of the proceedings of the great Indian Council at Ockmulgce, contains recommendations which should be promptly accepted by Congress. The In dians have expressed a desire, and have formed a compact among themselves, for the establishment of a Territorial Govern ment, and the adoption ot our system of kws and courts. The President recom mends that Congress take such action as shall enable them to organize the govern ment promptly, and in accordance with their own ideas. With the exception of the judiciary, he recommends that appoint ments of territorial officers be confined to Indiaus. We hope a trial may now be given to the Indians, such as will test their capacity for self government. It may serve to solve the perplexing Indian question. The national banks are to be regulated in reference to the rates of interest they shall be permitted to charge. A bill has been in troduced in the Senate, fixing the rate at the legal rate in the State in which they are located, and seven per, cent, where no legal rate is established. On Wednesday, February 1st, Joshua Hill, of Georgia, was admitted to a seat in the United States Senate from that State. Mr. Hill was one of the numerous claimants to the Senatorship from Georgia, and was elected by a Democratic Legislature. He was born in South Carolina, and is a lawyer by profession. He was elected a member of the Thirty-fifth and Thirty sixth Con gresses from Georgia, and withdrew in 1801 and returned to Georgia. He did not take an active part in the rebellion, and is con servative in his tendencies. In 1866 Andrew Johnson appointed him collector of the port of Savannah. The House Committee of Ways and Means postponed a vote on the subject of the Income tax, because of the absence of one of its members, wbosc vote is necessary to make a majority in favor of repeal. Mr. Allison heretofore has expressed his williug ness to have this tax repealed, but Secretary Boutwell has interviewed him, and changed bis opinion so that he will now vote against the repeal. When Mr. McCarthy returns a yote will be taken and a bill reported. Why this fight over relieving the people of this tax? There seetus almost a mania on tbe part of some members of Congress to quar rel with public opinion in this respect. The fact that General Pleaanton aud Secre tary Boutwcll have taken opposite sides on this question with reference to the profits derived by continuing the tax, ought to be sufficient of itself to repeal the law. Onerous au J inquisitorial it ought not to be allowed to remain on our statute books, one moment after a doubt arises over it being advantageous to the government. The contingent expenses of Congress, so far as the House is concerned, deserve some comment. It required $1,500 to bury a Congressman, $870 to arrest Patrick Woods, hauling documents to and from the House cost the neat little sum of $7,500, and con tested elections cost $51,500. These area very few of the items, but few as they are in number, they are sufficiently suggestive in point of fact. Land grabbing schemes in the Senate are comparatively a failure. The Committee on Public Lands, has cognizance of all such bills, and treats them with very little favor or respect. The general impression is that the Committee room s the grave of all such bills, and no one hears of them after the door is once closed on them. Should any be reported in the House hereafter, like ac tion should be taken on them. There has been such a general expression of opinion against these schemes, that those who per sist in favoring them this sessioti, will, iu all human probability, be deprived of tbe possibility of doing so hereafter. In the House, the Senate bill, prescribing an oath of office to be taken by participants in he late rebellion not disqualified from holding office under the Fourteenth amend ment, was discussed. This bill, as Mr. Butler explained when be reported it to the House,' abolishes what is usually called the iron-clad oath, and prescribes the milder form required, under tbe act of July 11, 1S68, to be taken by persons from whom legal disabilities have been removed. A long aud animated debate took place. The bill was supported by Mr. .Upson and Mr. Bingham, and strenuously opposed by Mr. Long, colored member from Georgia, and Mr. Maynard, and finally passed, 118 to 89.. Local Correspondence. Bcbnside, Jan. 30th, 1871. Mr. Editor Dear Sir. -After along silence, cau.-ed by tbe scarcity of nt-ws, I again present to tbe columns of the Journal a few items, which I hope will be of in terest to your intelligent readers, and more especially o "Prof. Offhand," correspond ent of the Republican, but more noted for I his great perseverance, and for the tenacity with which be clings to any undertaking ; which many of his achievievements testify. One of the same is stated in tbe following. It is said 'hat in his youthful days be held in his loving embrace, for a whole night, a circcular box, called a Churn. Wasn't that tenacity? He isal.-o noted for bis brilliant business qualifications, which are indeed of the highest order. I would recommend him to the public as a very suitable man to act as chairman of the stan ling committee ; for I know that be could do the silting. Next to the Bibre, ho idolizes the Clear field Republican, and in its columns ap peared a mixture of doggerel and prose, to which the Prof, signed bis name; his labor was, no doubt, an arduous one, judging fioin the number of quotations which he had huddled together. But was it fair? Should be not al.-o have assigned to the authors of those beautiful, but desecrated quotations, the honors of composing them? Some writer has beautifully said : "He who lives for himself, lives for a very mean fellow but "Prof. Oafhand" and his de scendants will not be guilty oi this crime ; for the Prof, lives to regulate the affairs of the village, while some of his descendants live to pluck the evergreen out of the cem etery, when placed there by the bereaved friends; the other members are busy aiding the "Temperance cause " this tbey do in a very peculiar way, namely, by rubbing the crathur on their uecks not tbe outside, either. Lucky Old Ben is in town, to day, for he was seen sitting on a stuuip, in Bennct's meadow, with pencil and paper in hand, noting the particulars of a fight between Jonnie Crackhimhard and Sammy Tough enough ; the particulars of which will doubt less be published soon. Our informant also stated that he thought that hair dye would take an upward turn, judging from the ap pearance of Ben's moustache. The earth has again been mantled in a beautiful robe of white, and the fascinating music of the bells, silver bulls, floats on every "gale that sweeps from the north."

The lumbermen arc busy improving the enow, and the banks of the Susquehanna are rapidly being crowded with the (not very valuable) stuff. If they don't soon stop there will be a larger run than thure was last spring. A sad accident occurred, one day last week, to a man named Josiah Hileman. He was engaged in making timber fur J. A. McGee, and while felling a tree, the unfor tunate man was caught by the butt-end of the tree, which crushed one of bis legs in a horrible manner. Physicians -were imme diately summoned, and upon examination, they ioutid that amputation -was the only means of saving bis life ; they therefore performed the amputation, and we under stand that Mr. Hileman is in a fair way to recover, though he will be a cripple for life. Too much care canuot be taken while felling trees. DiscircLts.
