The death of Mr. E. M. Stan

these seats are filled, Judges Nel

been appointed by either Mr. Lin
coln or General Grant It baa
been rumored that Judge Nelson
also designs resigning.
Within the last ten days fre
quent mention ha been made in
Uie dispatches of the "Rupert
Lund revolution." Few of our
readers we presume have much
idea of the character of this revo
lution, or even of its locality.
Eupcrt Laud or the Northwest
Territory is n part of tho British
Posgensionft, which extend from
ocean to ocean north of us. and
which are some iiincly-six thou -sand
squuru miles larger in area
than the United Stales, excluding
Alaski. The rebellious section in
question lies wmi of Western
Canada and north ol the North
western Slates of Wisconcin, Min
nesota, and the Territories of
DacoUh and Montana. We. up-
posc that it is Intended to nubracc
the whole of the basin of the Sas
katchewan river, from the Rocky
Mountains eastward to lake. Win
nipeg, and the drainage of the
lake on the east, and ou the south,
including the tied river of the
North, a region covering an area
of not less than thrco hundred
thousand square miles a beautiful
region for cereals, cattle and
sheep, equal in dimensions to
seven or eight States of the size
of New York, and no doubt capa
ble of supporting twenty millions
of people. In fact, after the Can
adas, New Bruswick and Nova
Scotia, the Northwest Territory is
all that remaius of the British
Possessions esat of the Rocky
Monntains adapted to profitable
cultivation. All the rest, like
Alaska, is worthloss, except to
the hunter, the trapper, and the
fisherman.
From all we cau learn of the
strength of this Rupert's Land re
volt lies in the settlements of the
valley of the Rod river of the
North. The sources of this river
are in that extonsivo table lund ol
beautiful fresh water lakes which
no man has uumberod, on the
northern half of Minnesota. From
this magnilloent tablo laud of fine
forests and countless fresh water
lakes we find interlocking the
head springs of the Red river,
which, through Lake Winnipeg,
passes aorth into Hudson Bay,
and the bead springs of tho Mis
sissippi, which flows south into the
Gulf of Mexico. Tho Red river
for some two hundred miles is the
boundary line between Minuesola
and Dacotali, aud for a hundred
miles and more before it cutcrs
the British possessions is a navi
gablestream.
Just this side the British bounda
ry line, in tho northeast corner of
D aco tan, lies the tho principal set
tlement of the river, tho town of
Pembina. It is the half-way trad
ing post of her .Britannic Majes
ty's settlers of the Winuepeg ba
sin, where they make their ex
changes with the traders from St
Paul, Minn. Indeed, during the
summer, by boats up the Red riv
er and by ox teams or 'pony carls
across to the country to the Mis
sissipp, those French Canadians
aud half breeds bring over, to
considerable extent, themselves,
their buffalo skins and their furs
to St. Paul, and take back in ex
change their dry goods and gro
ceries. During tne winter even
Uisy still drive a pretty brisk trade
over this route with dog sleds,
With such business intercourse
these Bed river or Lake Winnipeg
French Canadians have become
pretty thoroughly Americanized.
Impenetrable, roadless forests aud
morasses cut them off from Cans
da, and hence they naturally call
the new government sent out to
them from that quarter "a strange
government." They don't know
anything about it. Their busi
ness and social relations are with
the people of tho United States
and hence their declaration of in
dependence.
But through all the southern
tier of the British provinces of
North America, from sea to sea,
among the French Canadians,
Fenians, traders and speculators,
disaffection, in one form or an
other, against the British govern
ment exists. It is daily widening,
too, and assamiaz a movemont
for annexation to the United
Stales. It appears thai a declara
tion has been issued In the name
of the provisional government as
a repnblio of Rupert's Land and
the Northwest Territory, signed
by John Bruce, as President,
snd Louis Rielle, as Secretary;
that in this declaration it is pro
claimed that the people of Ru
pert's Land, 4c. (less Jlhan forty
thousand in number, we suspect,)
have heretofore respected the au
thority of the company of adven
turers known as the Hudson Bay
Company, which circumstances
had placed over tliem, nnsausiac-
niily as was the government; but
liiut ua it has abandoned them by
transferring to a strange Power
(the New Dominion) the sacred
authority confided to it, the peo-
lu concerned have become free
from all allegiance to suid gov-
erniiicnl ; that they repudiate the
authority of Canada ; that they
will not have Governor McDou-
,'all and his companions to rule
over them ; that the people of said
Northwest Territory have accord
ingly set up a government for
themselves; that they aro ready
to treat with the Canadian or New
Dominion government; but that
meantime, in support of their de
claration, "relying on the protec
tion of Divine Providence, we
mutually pledge on oath our
lives, our fortunes and our sacred
honor."
The Washington correspondent
of the N. Y. World writes thus:
"In the Senate Mr. Sumner intro
duced a bill to reconstruct Virgin
ia, which be said he should move at
the proper time as a substitute for
the bill already reported by the Ju
diciary Committee, and whloh
shows that Mr. Sumner is uot at all
in favor of the speedy admission of
that State. The hill provides that
the present government shall be
considered merely provisions! uu
til the Governor issue bis proclama
tion convening the Legislature.
The members of which shall take the
iron-clad test oath. Next, the Fif
teenth Amendment must be adopt
ed, snd a pledge given that nothing
in the Constitution of the State
shsll prohibit negroes from voting,
or.holdlng oWce, or sitting on a jury.
These rtqiiirtumnta, particularly
the requirement of the test oath,
had been repudiated by the admin
istration in the case of Virginia, and
are Intended to place Virginia on
precisely the seme footing with
Georgia. Hie Radicals who took
an iuch, are, It seems, determined to
lake an ell. There is a rumor that
Iluljer, who recently pledged him
self to the Virginia delegation that
if they would see that the provi-
loin of the State Constitution as it
now stands were carried out, he
would see that Virgiula was a State
in the Union within a week, is now,
having got hit revenge out of the
Virginians by receiving them as
suppliants, ready to side with even
so extreme a measure as this of
Sumuer. Couslstoncy, the Radicals
say, ii a jewel, and it would be In
consistent to demand more of one
State than from another."
It is said that the President was
walking in Pennsylvania avenue
when he was informed of the death
of Stanton. His first remark was
one of aurprise, and when assured
of the fact, his head dropped up
on his bresst snd he showed much
emotion. Extraordinary ! The
Idea that such a stolid creature as
Grant could show emotion of
sorrow is preposterous. When
Rawlins, the man who made him
great, lay dying and vexing the
wires with plaintive calls to Grant
at a neighboring watering place to
return to his dying friend and
companion, Grant threw aside the
dispatch and continued his dissi
pation and permitted one who
loved him devotedly' aud who
labored like a slave for his ad
vancement, to die unnoticed.
There Is not room for a soft emo
tion in his heart of stone.
Advices have been received in
London which confirm tho state
ment that Lopez has fled from
Paraguay. It is not known to
what point he has fled. We think
this another canard about this re
markable man. The Allies have
had him killed, fled the country,
etc., times without number before.

COMMCllIOaTm.
Editor Ukraio:
The undersigned has read with
great interest, your several articles
on .immigration, ana know from
experience, that your views as ex
presiedin them are right. Most
of the immigrants or laborers ar
riving at this port are generally
without means, trusting they can
find employment the day thof ar
rive here. Falling in this they
have to endure hunger and pass a
mauy nii(ht on some friendly cotton
bale. Naturally enough they be
come augnsica witn tne country
and hasten back north on the first
boat that will give them free - pass
age for tbelr labor wnlle On the
boat
Seeing so much misery, the Oer
tnaus of this .city last year organ
ised the Germs u society principally
to aa-iM their unfortunate country
men with means aud advice, but
latorly so many have applied for
assistance that it was impos
sible to provide one tenth
of the needy onos with shelter snd
food, sud eould only take care of
the most urgent cases. One fami
ly, with six children, coining from
St Louis to go op the Tallahatchie
river, were exposed for several
days during the inclement weather
without any means at all, and bad
it not been tor a few charitable
persons would have suffered hun
ger. That unfavorable news go
back from such people is no won
der. Immigration Judiciously com
menced and well directed will suc
ceed beyond question, but agents
sent out to Europe with notices
willWt do mnch good, such per
son? are generally teceived with
distrust, a every South American
Republic aud State hat for years
past had agents there, and such bad
news have come back that the
country people in Europe will
have nothing to do with them any
more. But one thing oor planting
community has to learn, that is to
give different rations to the Ger
man laborer than to the negroes.
If they intend that the German
shall live on rations confuting of
pork and corn bread they will find
out to their owu sorrow that the
men will not stay during the sea
son or get sick and be unlit for
work, linmigratiou once com
menced aud Hie persons coming
will be satisfied they can and will
draw more friends and ueiglibors
from their old homes in Germany
than ten agents cau, and wherever
tne sturdy Germau farmer settles
the price of lands will go up ; set
tlements will spring up all over tho
country and the ssge bushes and
thorns on the nncultivatcd lands
will disappear forever.
Where cotton fails to grow in
the bills, tho vineyards aud the
culture of bops will take the place
and open the eyes of the old plautcr
and show bim that after all the
culture of cotton is not the most
profitable pursuit in this country
But treat the Immigrant kindly and
justly, and you will never regret
saving invited him into your State.
We are informed that General
Ames failed to appoint Mr. W
H. Yasser tp the position to
which he was elected, that of State
Treasurer, from the fact that Mr,
Vasser declined to take the test
oath as required by the Recon
struction Acts. Mr., Yasser was
in the Confederate army, and. we
think has nevei.had hie political

"Art long -vita breyit," said the
poet.
Christians look forward confl-
deuUy to the grand consummation
when Time will be no more. Even
now, Time was and is not. Fleet-
In if, fleeting, too fleeting for the
accomplishment of man's finite
purposes. Wo look forward
through along serletof years, as
ooe ldoks ibjwn a lengthy aisle, or
out away over the advancing waves
of old ocean and sees them melt
Into ripples upon tho far, fur dis
tant horizon. Thru looking about
him as if expertiug to see them
pan by aud become lost in lessen
ing gradations, Le sees only the
finality the end the evcr-prescut
Now.
Time is not, but is to be. So
judgos Immunity. The Now is for
preparation ; the Futieb is for ac-
lion. But fat, or necessity, or
God's will, as we may deem It, for
bids that men shall ever be prepar
ing to do. The hours are fed by
events. They crave accomplish-
ments, aud the demand must be
satisfied.
But Time that was has been
glutted. Accomplishments succeed
ed each other in quick succession.
Event followed event. The maw
of Time became crammed, and yet
more was craved.
War followed pestilence, famine
war, snd bankruptcy famine, until
Time satiated sinks into a lethargy,
and the sixth decade of the nine
teenth century closes over social
and political chaos.
The Future became the Now, the
Now the Past, and the Past Eter
nity's tomb swallowed up in its
bottomless vaults ths woes that
should belong to a century.
Please God they are buried never
to be resurrected.
Upon what a decade is the year
1869 closing I
Retrospection shrinks from its
labors.
Ten years ago pesce snd plrnty
reigned. There was ioy ia every
household. To-day poverty and
want, hearthatoues desecrated,
households robbed of their flowers,
graves accumulated, hearts broken.
And why T Oh, ye of the East,
the West, the North I Ye may con
demn the South and exult iu your
victory aud tell ns our ruin is upon
our own beads, but you caunoteei
the proud self-consciousness of
Right the self-abnegation of spirit,
the willing devotednesi, which en
thused the breasts of Southern
Bebelt, aye, rebels we are proud
of it and who, as the result of that
graud sincerity; must ever feel an
unutterable sorrow for the "Lost
Canse."
But wo do not repine because of
t he Inevitable. With a solomn and
earnest spirit of resignation we
address ourselves to the dutlei that
press upon us. The Past, its vic
tories aud defeats, its martyred
heroes aud dead hopes, all are em-
balmcu In our heart of hearts for
ever.
Aye, the "dead Past must bury
its dead," snd we, the people of'the
South, though insulted, contemned
snd degraded the regnant power
would have us, must brace our
selves for great efforts In the build
ing up of domestic prosperity. The
Southron's noble pride is a shield
sgainst the asssults of Ids relentless
persecutors. Let us lire for our
selves, within sud unto ourselvei.
Let us nso every effort to be inde
pendent not only in name but in
fact and deed. This is our true
policy.
The nearer we approach the ac
complishment of this object, the
farther we recede from our present
unhappy dependence. To effect this
purpose wo must develope our in
ternal resources by railroads, man
ufactures, aud Improved farm cul
ture. If we cannot recognize our
Government as a Republican-
Democracy and engage in its po
litical affairs, let us if we will
consider it a monarchy or an em
pire, Vid, eschewing politics, attend
solely to our own domestic con
cerns of agriculture, manufacture,
interual improvements aud com
merce. May tho New Year close
upon peace and prosperity, and the
decado npon which we are now
entering be fraught with rich blesi
Ings to onr long suffering people.
Ths Meadville Journal tells of
a little child two years old, son of
Mr. II. P.Montgomery who resides
in that vicinity, who was lost
some three, weeks since sad when
found was some distance in the
woods. The little creature was
out from Thursday noon until
Friday evening. Thursday night
was one of the coldest of the sea
son. Mow the little creature aur-
vWed is miraculous. ; -
CITY tqCAWSLES.
There seems to be quite sa
amount of agitation in the council
ohambers of our city fathers.
Vague rumors reach us at times.
It seems that the ides advanced by
ua tome time past that one man
thould hold more than one respon
lible paying office has beguu to op
prcs certain of the city sachems.
The idea entertained by the disaf
fected is, that no one man can do
justice to himself, the people whom
he represents or the offices which
he holds, if he should be fortunate
or unfortunate enough to have two
offices both of which requiro his
Individual attention. Chsrges were
recently made against the City
Marshal of this city that he bad
grossly neglected his duties. The
matter was referred to a committee
of the City Council, five incum
ber. This; committee exonerated
tho officer from tho charges prefer
red, u'pou the ground that while it
was true be did not give his per
sonal attention to his duties and as
the rhlef officer of the Police force
did and as it was the custom of
all bis predecessors to tbus dele-
gale the performance of the duties
of the office it was now too late to
begin a new system. The idea
seemed to be, that the office of City
Marshal was simply a sinecure. If
we remember aright, not a great
while sgo the office of Deputy
Marshal was abolished that the ex
penses of the city might be red need
snd that thereby the Marshal
should be compelled to perform
ths duties of this office. If it hat
been found by practice that the
abolition of the office ef Deputy
Marshal simply carries with it ths
right to transfer the duties of Mar
shal to the Captain of Police, why
not do away with the office?
And if in time it should be found
that the duties have derolved npon
te first policeman and ths interest
of the city were yet guarded, why
not discharge that Policeman, and
finally go on discharging until no
one shall be lea but the Marshal,
and If he sbsll still fall to perform
his duty, and have no ooe to whom
to delegate It, why It will be estab-
llshed "beyond , perad ve'olnre, that
the whole farce Is entirely nuaacus-
sary and the city will be saved this
expense. It is rather a lengthy
and tedious process of arriving at
the solution of this question, but
probsbly it is ths only wsy left to
sstlsfactorlly settle it
"VicxkBuio Base." In look-
tug over the advertisements which
sppear in the Herald of to-day,
our attention is directed to the
card of the "Vlcksburg Bank.' B.
R. Thomas is Cashier and E. 8.
Bnnts, Assistant Cashier. This in
stltution was established in our
city In the fall of 1808, since which
time Its affAirs have been so con
ducted as to secure a stronghold ia
ths confidence, respect and lore of
this business commnnity. It is a
Bank of which any city may feel
proud, and to those of our friends
who have banking business to
transact we say : a more reliable
and trustworthy Institution cannot
be found.
A auiLDiao once used as a
church in New York city, ia now

teachings of their old pastors, now
resound with ths blasphemy of ost
lers and the neighing of steeds.
And another is a ''Casino," in
which pugilists delight to assem
ble to disfigure those fair faces
which it delighted God to oreate in
the image of Ilia own.
Pbeiidekt G east's recommen
dation for the repeal of the clvll
tennre law has fallen perfectly flat
There has been no response to it
whatever in the Senate, and it Is
said that body is not more favora
bly Inclined to surrender its con
trol over the the offices than it wss
last spring. In the House of Rep
resentative! Mr. Butler has made
a pro forma proposition to repeal
the tenurc-of-office law, but has not
shown sny teal In following it up.
Besides the general Indifference In
Cougress to executive recommen
dations, there is the special reason
for refnial ia this esse that , tho as
pirants for the Presidency soe that
to repeal this law would immense
ly assist Grant in his schemes for
re-election. Tboy do not wish to
give him this great sd vantage,, Be
