Haftsmans ItamwL 52 S. J. ROW, EDITOR AKD PROPRIETOR. Clearfield, pa., april 12, isti. Senator Jacob f I. Howard, of Michigan, died at Detroit, on Sunday, April 2d. Senator Sherman's resolution on the Ku KIux question was adopted by the U. S. Senate on Wednesday las.. Sumner acted with the Republicans. The X. Y. JL.rald srys : "Shad will soon begin to run up the Connecticut river." The Democratic "suekors" commenced run niiiS down last week, ch ? Sumner's Fpeeeh was printed as a pam phlet, and lareely circulated in Conneticut by the Democrats. That accounts for that 'plorious Democratic victory" iu Connecti cut, on Monday a-week. Under the constitution of Pennsylvania no city or county can have more than four Senators. Thus Allegheny, with 202 000 population, has three Senators, and Phila delphia, with nearly 700.000, only four. . Democratic journals have f r weeks past been averting that the Republican party was ''drifiinir away" from the confidence of the people. Some evidence of the "drift" may be found in the late election returns. We do not read vpry many essays in the Democratic paper? over the reduction of the National debt laH month, of $10,011, 2'jO f,5. Such "arguments" are very dam aging to the success of Kit Kluxisra in 172. The Albany Journal states that the ex penses of that city have increased four fold in ten years. It is even more in Troy 50 ing up frorn' $125,603 in 3S60, to $643,049 in 1S70. Democracy and extravagance keep even pace everywhere. Closely following the impeachment and conviction of Gov. Holden in South Caroli na, come3 the advocacy, by the same class of papers that assailed the Governor, for the re establishment of the whipping post. Barbarities usually go hand in hand. Senator Ames is in receipt of letters daily from Mississippi, narrating outrages that are constantly perpetrated there by the Ku Klux. Gov. Alcjrn, it is aiiegeu, lias ap pointed many ex-rebel soldiers to places of power in many counties, and that instead of suppressing the operations of the Ku-Klux they encourage them in their unlawful acts. Since Jefferson TaTis' speech at Selma, Alabama, we would be at a loss to point out which particular issue of the Democra cy in the past, is the "dead" one it so con tinually talks about. D strikes us that Davis' speech does aTay with these "dead issues" and resuscitates them into active life. The rumor that Bacz lias been killed in battle has an air of plausibility. Before the Commissioners left San Domingo, he was transported to a point from whence he was to proceed to take command of his ar my. A battle has been fought, andhe is thought to be killed. Should he prove to be dead, it will end the negotiations for the annexation of San Domingo. Mr. Butler, in his speech on Southern outrages, suested as a remedy that the Democratic party proclaim thrt peace and ordtr are necessary to its success in the next Presidential election. This would unques tionably restraiu the Ku-Klux as a body. But the Democratic party has decided upon the opposite policy, and its agents will con tinue to pillage and murder in intimidation of Republican voters until the strong arm of the Govt-rniueut is outstretched for their protection. The question on which the Democracy are preparing to go before the country is the repeal of the reconstruction acts, touch ing which the Jlemll remarks as fallows : "But if the Democratic party shall attempt n.iain to try the experiment of unsettling the fixed fieis resulting from the war they wiii surely bo again defeated. In franhly accepting the Constitution as it is they have ft fair prospect of success; lu if they will iu-Ht upun 'the constitution a? it was' un der Buchanan, they will surely bo agnin r!e fea'ed. It is far the Northern Democracy this time to bring the South to reason, io- sreai of following the Hotspurs of the South once more on the road to ruin Sure ly Tammany Hall has had enough of that f'V.ly." The Pittsburg Dispatch says: With the a.tntion in the Democratic party as to the candidate mct available for Presidential nomination comes tho somewhat start'ing information that Mr. Thnrman, of Obio, drinks liquor, whether whiky, brandy or pin, is not stated. Some one has said that lie was drunk at tho Democratic National Convention in New York, li-u Alexander Delinir, the distinguished editor of the Xitional Intelligencer, comes forward and te.-tifies that be was present when Thur waa declared his sentiments from the top of the table; and he says that the insinua tion that this distinguished statesman pot drunk was "a malignant lie,"" for he was there and knew how it was himself. But the man who started the story affirms that all w!iO were present on the occasion refer red to were drunk, which is entirely pioba L"e. By the way, isn't it something new t'.rour Democratic friends to be looking up ! ti question of n:ffal3 so carefully? While tUir Land U in, we suggest that they rX ,rirei.t ,n Hoffman, lieu jrkki and Blair. Republicanism "Drifting." The election in Connecticut on Tuesday, April 4th, resulted in a victory to the Re publicans. Last year the Democrats car- 1 r"el the State by a handsome majority, and i they were very certain of carryiug it again this year, but they have been sadly disap pointed in their anticipations the Republi cans having elected Taylor, Lieut Governor, by 306 majority; Appleman, Secretary of State, by f0 maj. ; Manning, Controller, by 330 inaj. ; and three out of the four Concressmen. Neither of the. candidates for Governor receiving a majority of all the votes cast, the election devolves upon the Legislature, and as the Republicans have a majority in both houses, Jewell, Kepubli can, will of course be. chosen. This is a grand triumph, and a fair offset to the re cent result in New Hampshire. Besides it shows which way ths "tide is drifting." Rhode Island, on the same day, re elect ed the present Republican State officers, with the exception of Lieut.-Governor, by about 3,300 majority. The question of abolishing trap fishing in the bay was made the issue in the choice of Lieut. Governor. A third candidate being voied for by Re publican bolters, an election was prevented ; but the Legislature, which is largely Repub lican in both Houses, will no doubt select the regular Republican candidate. This is another Republican "drift." As some further evidence as to where Re publicanism is "drifting," we direct the at tention of our readers to a few facts relating to municipal elections in various localities, to wit : On Monday, April 3d, the Piepob!;can ticket in .Cleveland, Ohio, was elected by l.JjOO majority. In sf'9 the Democratic Mayor was chosen by 2,677 majority. A Republican gain of over 4,000. Not a Democratic rooster ha made its appearance over that result, the "drift." being enor mously towards l"jub!ieani.sui. Wooster,. Ohio, has pone Republican against a Democratic majority of 200 last tail. In Maryland, the Republican? hive elect- j ed their tickets iu towns herctofoie Demo crat!:; rnd the Baltimore American, after a careful survey of the political field in in that State, predicts that Maryland will "drift" into the Republican line in 1X72. At Schenectady, New York, the Repub licans e!eeteHheir Mayor by 200 majority, being a gain of GOO. In PaltLer county, N. Y., the Board of Supervisors stands three Republicans and one Democrat two of a Republican gain. Lyons, Iowa, heretofore largely Demo cratic, has elected a fall Republican ticket. The elections in Ilarrodslurg and Dan ville, Kentucky, have resulted in favor of the Republicans a gain. At Kvansvi'le, Indiana, a Republican Mayor was elected by 800 of a majority a In Milwaukee, Ladingfon. Republican, is elected by about 1,0 JO majority. Tiitsc fiic a few of the "tliifW fur llinm- ciple officers, but they are significant enough to show that "drift" of which De mocracy has been predicting so much of late. Verily, Depublieanism is "drifting" onward to renewed victory. The Issues of .1872. The Pittsburg Gazette of April 6th says that Senator Morton places the preat issues of 1S72 fairly before the public in his late speech in the Senate. Shall reconstruction be maintained ? Shall Constitutional amend ments be upheld? Shall colored people be protected in the enjoyment of equal rights? Shall Republicans in the South be protected in life, liberty and property ? These, Sen ator Morton thinks, will be the great issues of 1S72. besides which all others will tink into insignificance. Every day between this and the campaign of 1S72, we believe these issues will become more end mnro positively defined. Every Democratic success will be attended with a corresponding increase of confidence on the part ot the Southern men in the policy of standing Crnily to these is sues. That they will retire one step from tho position assumed by Blair and Davis we have not the least idea. That they will take bolder grounds than even those yet assumed is far more probable. The remuneration of Southern men for the loss of their slaves is not an exploded idea. Men of all kinds ciing most ardently to monied demands,and we are satisfied that this question roust, sooner or later, have a most positive bearing on the formation of the two great parties of the land. That the Novthern Democracy would to-day support such an issue is almost unquestionable. Even should policy indi cate that such an i.-sue would ensure defeat, the position assumed by the Democratic party in the North, forces them to make this concession to the Democrats of the South. We think, as Senator Morton has asserted, that the issues of 1672 will be so strictly defined that 110 collateral peisonal issues will have the slightest weight with the public. Believing this, we iullv believe also that in the coming Presidential cam paign the Republican party will be a i:u:t in strength, and that every day and hour t lie promise of a Republican victory grows more ! positive. It seems that the people of Metz are not disposed to be absorbed into the great Ger man Empire without a vigorous protest. They have issued a document of this kind in which they recite their grievances, and appeal to be continued as a part of France, with which country they are aliied in sym--pathy, language and Governmental usage. It is not likely that their protest will effect any charge in their situation. A comparative statement which Las been prepared at the Internal Revenue Office, showing the receipti from the general sources of internal revenue now subject to tax for the first eight months of the present and the lan fiscal year, shows a total de crease of f 10,310,133. There has been a decrease on spirits of $3,124,817, and on incomes of $4,782,660. Tobacco shows an increase of $1,373,536. It is stated from Washington that an ex tra session of the Senate will be called to consider the treaty to be concluded by the Joint High Commission. The Eu-Klni Startling Pacts. The Wash ington Chronicle of Tuesday learns from private advices down to Sunday night, tt in North Carolina affairs are worse. than ever for the Union meo. With in the last few months the Ku Klux organ ization bus mustered in at least twenty thousand ni3n, making in all orce of about feisty thousand in the State, armed and equipped,' prepared to resist the United States or any other government, should any attempt be made to protect the Union uierf there. Outrages, continue, and theK Klux have assumed protty much the entire control over Gaston, Lincoln and adjoining counties, where they have not exercised much authority before. In the recent fight at Union county, South Carolina, over one hundred men from Charlotte, North Caro lina (the home of Senator elect Vance)par ticipated. They took their departure, arm ed and equipped, for the scene of action" as cpenly as ever a regimentTof men passed through Washington into Virginia during the late war. They returned after the fight in the same open way, and to day make boasts in public of their deeds on that oc casion. Even the' Telegram, published at Raleigh as an independent newspaper, is so influenced by publio opinion as to say ,lthat threats of Federal interference, excite no ear here." In other words, the Federal author ities are defied, as was done in 1861. Of the colored men killed at Chester, Union county, South Carolina, in the late fight, eight belonged to the militia. We under stand they were first di farmed and then hot. A prominent citizen of North Carolina, who has a national reputation, and is everywhere honored and respected, writes that if imme diate relief is not extended, white and col ored Union men must flee the State. President Grant's proclamation of March 24, 1871, commanding persons composing unlawful combinations in South Carolina to disperse within twenty days, has revived the re olleetion of similar disturbances on previous occasions in the history of the Uni ted States. In 1785 the people living in the territory then belonging to North Caro lina, but now forming part of the State of Tennessee, became dissatisfied with their rulers and organized the State of Franklin, which, under the leadership of John Sevier was maintained until 1788. In Massachu setts popular discontents broke out in 1786, and, under John Shays, assumed alarming proportions. This outbreak was suppressed by the militia, and indirectly contributed to' the catling of the convention to form the psesent constitution of the - United States. The whisky insurrection broke out in Penn sylvania in 1771, and lasted until 1794, and was only suppressed by troops sent into the disaffected district by President Wash ington. In 1842, the Sta'e of Rhode Island was disturbed for a few months by the "Dorr Rebellion," martial law having been proclaimed and the assistance of the Federal Government having been invoked. When the recent rebellion broke on1;, and after Fort Sumter was captured President Lincoln, on April 15th, 1861, issued a proclamation, calling out 75.000 militia, and commanding the persons composing the illegal combinations of that peiiod o disperse and retire to their respective abodes within twenty city 3. France. An extraordinary scene took place in Paris on Thursday. Those killed in the recent battle or died lrom their wounds, were given a public burial, in which there were violent demonstrations against the Versailles Government. The Versailles army is again operating against Paris, nnd indications of vigor attend its operations. Since the battle of Monday there has been cot.f tantskirmisbing between the Gov ernment troops and the insurgents to the south of Paris with a few casualities and unimportant results. The Government ap peared desirous to conciliate, nnd the Coni-mur.i;-ts restricted themselves to a defensive attitude But on Friday a serious and ob siinate attack upon the advanced positions of the insurgents was made by the regulars, whotock the Bridge of Neuiily, alter a sharp engagement, ami drove the rebels up the Avenue d3 Neuiily and inide of the for tifications. At nightfall, the Government troops occupied strong position 011 either side of the Porte Maillot. Besides this principal engagement, the insurgents were defeated in several skirmishes in the seve ral suburbs. The condition of Paris is most deplorable. The earnest desire of all reasonable persons for the restoration of order will be a powerful auxiliary to the regular troops as soon as they have once effected a lodgment within the walls. The condition of affairs in an around Paris is something remarkable, and will probably originate fierce animosities that will require along time to heal. From Ct KA. The active rebel general Modesto Diaz lately made h'n appearance in the vicinity of Manzilo, where a column of Spanish troops were surprised, forty of which were placed l.ors du combat. By the time the column recovered from its sudden surprise, the rebels had vanished. The de feat of Col. Morales De Las lvios nearSanti Esperitu, has been indirectly confirmed, al though the Spanish journals try to make it appear of no importance. Col. Morales La Rios divided his for ces intrt four columns, intending to surprise the rebels under command of Salome Her nandez, Villatnell Bembetta, Marcas aud Garcia in ttteir strongholds in the mountains within six miles of Santa Espcritu. The heavy Spanish loss was the cause of Yal mazeda's sudden journey to the latter place. Recently a party of hnnters discovered in the vicinity of Parksville, Mo., a cave, which is supposed from articles found there in to be occupied by counterfeiters. Sever al boxes with padlocks to them, rolls of bank note paper, and also dies, inks, and other appliances and tools such as might be used in the manufacture of counterfeit money were discovered, but the discoverers seem to have become apprehensive of the sudden appearance of the occupants of the den, and made haste to leave the locality, thinking their throats in danger should they pursue a their investigation either to satisfy curiosity or with a view of bringing the outlaws to jaitioe. , Eiot at Seranton, On Thursday last April 6th. the long con tinued "striktj" in the coal region, culmin ated in riot and blooila.,,e(h r At about 2 o'clock," a large 1-ody of miners congregated at Tripp's slope, at Seranton, assailed the men with stones and clubs, and stopped the work- On the morning of the 7th about 50 ) rioters drove the men out of Connel's mines, and the mines worked by Morris it Weeks, and blew up the slope at the last named mines with powder, tore up the railroad track, and douc other damage. Three men employed at Tripp's works were shotifown in cold blood, by the mob, and others were beaten and stoned so se verely that they will die. Two breakers were burned at Seranton on the 7th, one having about 200 hundred tons of coal in the shute ; and the Noyang brea ker was burned later in the day, after dri ving off the workmen. About 1000 rioters were engaged in this work of destruction. These acts of lawlessness created intense excitement throughout the coal region, and as the local authorities were unable to main tain the peace and protect the property of citizens, a request was sent to Gov. Geary for troops to quell the riots. The Governor responded promptly to the request, and placed Gem Osborne, of Wilkesbarre, an experienced officer in the late war, in com mand of a battalion of State Guard and a section of artillery, who reached the scene of disturbance on the evening of the 7lh. The arrival of the military at Seranton, had the desired effect, as no further distur bances took place, and on Saturday Gen. Osborne informed Governor Geary that the riot Was quelled. This new trouble in the coal region is a cause of regret throughout the Stjte; and it-is to be hoped that the end of the strike has been reached, and that a permauent ar rangement will bo effected between the mi ners and operators, so that in tho future 110 more such disgraceful and lawless acts may be enacted in the coal region in thu State. The trade between the Dominion of Can ada and the United States for the year 1870 is repor'ed thust The Dominion imported from the United States poods valued at $24,728,100, and exported 32,984,652;ma kingan excess of exports of $3,256,545. The chief article of export was sawed lumber, valued at $4,064,044. The horned cattle exported were valued at $2,427,680. The firewood exported was valued at $419,616. The eggs sent from Canada to the United States amounted in number to 1,430,756 dozen. The other provinces exported to the United States the following articles t Nova Scotia sent coal, valued at $398,521 ; salted salmon, $471,004; sawed lumber, $151,076; firewood, $97,3S5, New Bruns wick sent fish, salted and pickled, $114,927; sawed lumber, $191,236, and laths, ?92,396. The Pittsburg Cot nmcrciul says : "The Tammany leaders are preparing to extend their rule over other cities and States, and for this purpose will add twelve million dol lars to the funds they will control during the coming year, for not one ent of which will they give an account. It would seem that there must be a limit to the endurance of which the city of New York is capable, and that tho startling ezpensivenesa of Democracy there must produce a reaction. At any rate, the people outside of the city have an opportunity to make up their minds in advance, whether they want Tammany tactics to extend over the whole country, and the machinery invented to run the me tropolis set up at the National Capital. The question is sufficiently real and serious to arrest the attention of most men, Demo crats as well as Republicans." Philadelphia, according to the recent returns of assessors, contains 94,446 brick, 7,385 etone, and 12,472 wooden dwel ling houses, moking agrand total of 1 14,303 homes for the population of 700,000. Of this number of dwellings 37,116 are two storied and 70,192 three storied. There are 451 church buildings, 134 public school buildings, 80 school buildings of religious societies, 63 halls ant theatres, and 8,443 other buildings of various kinds. The ag gregate of houses and other structures is 122,746. This return of dwellings is about fifteen hundred greater than the return made by the United States census marshals, but the difference is not greater than the rapid progress of building from June, 1870 to the close of that year will account for. The Republicans have now 133 members of the House, and the Democrats 99. One from Louisiana and one from North Caroli na have not yet taken their seats. One of them is a Republican and the other a Dem ocrat. Allowing the two vacancies, one in Illinois, in place of Senator Logan, and one in Michigan, ir. place of Senator Ferry, to be filled by Republicans, and one Republi can from Texas, and one from California, in the elections to take place, the Republicans will have in the House 133 members. And allowing the Democrats three from Texas, and two from California, the Democrats will have 105 members, making the aggregate of 243 members. The Baltimore American expresses this opinion: "If a proposition for the purchase of Cuba for one hundred millions of dollars were presented to the Senate and people of the United States, it would, in all probabil ity, meet with a prompt and almost unani mous acceptance. Although it is not as rich sn soil or as healthy in climate as San Domingo, it would be regarded as cheap at one hundred millions, and 'manifest destiny would be the ruling motto of the hour." On this the American constructs an argu ment in favor of the annexation of San Domingo. As an evidence-of the glorious consisten cy of the Democracy, we find that the two hundred murders in Nevada during the last ten years, are paraded in every Demo cratic sheet, and loudly commented on. In Kentucky, alone, there have been more murders than the number in Nevada, twice told, and all committed within the past year or two, and on loyal men and women, only because they were loyal. Yet Democracy says not a word, or if it does, tries to da ily it. ' A Little of Everything. A new bank ww opened in Philiptburg last week. . The way to fettle debts jay them with green backs.
