The cloud of war in Maryland grows
darker and more threatening. The ev
idence against the Police Commission
ers fixes upon them a most dam
ning record and will startle the whole
country by the villainies it brings to
light. The Commissioners, it apjx'ars,
selected as their subordinates the most
disreputable and desperate characters
that could be raked from the dens of a
great city, men who had no reputation
to lose, and who were steeped in crime
and would tie mere tools in the hands
of their masters, the Radicals, to carry
out the basest partisan purposes.—
Among the Judges, Inspectors and
Clerks of election were scoundrels of
everyshade. Pimps, Rummers,Bawdy
house keepers, Thieves and Murderers
were made guardians of the ballot-box,
the most sacred of all trusts in a Re
With the police of the city and the
election boards thus organized the Rad
icals had plain sailing. The police ar
rested and tilled the lock-ups with con
servative voters and the Commission
ers issued an order that they should not
be released until after the polls closed.
Thousands of men who have lived and
voted in Baltimore all their lives were
refused a vote because they favored the
policy of the President, and thousands
of New England Yankees and New
York rowdies were allowed to vote for
no other reason than that they were
Radicals. The election officers were '
obedient to their masters. The radical '
leaders had only to nod or wink through ;
the window and a vote was taken or re- j
jected, according to the politics of the i
voter. By means like these and by !
others equally barefaced and diabolical
the Radicals carried the Municipal e
lection in Baltimore, although the con
servatives outnumber them two to one.
Governor Swan after full investiga
tion and proof of the tacts has removed
the old Commissioners and appointed
others in their place. The old Com
missioners at last accounts, refused to
yield up their authority or surrender
the police property. If they persist in
their course a collision seems almost in
evitable. We believe that Governor
Swan will enforce the laws at every
hazard. He is not the man we take
him to be if he permits a revolutiona
ry faction at home or Radical fanatics
abroad to turn him from his duty. If
the collison comes it may be of the most
sanguinary character. The first blow
in Baltimore may kindle a blaze of civ
il war throughout the country. Uj>on
the heads of the lawless men who pro
voked the conflict be the consequences.
—Since the above has been in type,
we have received further news from
Baltimore. The Police Commissioner
difficulty has been compromised. The
new Commissioners appointed by the
Governor, having been imprisoned on
a writ issued by Judge Bond, are to be
unconditionally released on this (Tues
day) morning. The question of title is
to be tried in the Courts. The old Judges
of Election are to be removed and new
ortes appointed by mutual agreement
of both parties, the Judges to possess,
each, a property qualification of SIO,OOO.
It is thought that this will secure a fair
vote of the people. We doubt it, how
The first three words ("The daughter
of") of the telegram announcing the
death of Secretary Seward's daughter
were lost by the operator here 1 , in ta
king off the dispatch. This made it an
unequivocal announcement of the death
of the Secretary of State, and for sev
eral hours our community believed he
was dead. Of course the news sadden
ed the hearts of conservatives, and of
decent people of all parties, but some
of the Radicals were evidently delight
ed. One of them—a leader—openly
declared that he was glad the old polit
ical renegade was out of the way. This
brutal remark comes with peculiar bad
grace, when it is remembered that it
came from one who only a short time
ago was a 'copperhead' and is now wear
ing the bib-and-tueker of his Republi
can baby-hood. Truly, Facilvs l)&cen-
THE Somerset Herald (■ U'Aiflds very
facetious on the subject of bribing vo
ters. Its editor thinks Democrats must
be a very corrupt sort of people, if, as
we alleged, ( Jen. Geary's election was
secured by money. This kind of log
ic will not do, Mr. Scull. There are
voters enough of the purchaseablekind,
in this State, to give the majority to
either party. You know this as well as
you know anything. It is a melancholy
fact, but it is, nevertheless, a /(ft.
These corrupt men belong to no party.
They are in the market and on election
day Ixrome the property of the high
est bidder. Rut money was used by
your party, in the late election, not on
ly in the purchase of votes, but to pay
the expenses of colonizing voters from
other States and from strong into weak
Congressional districts. Your friend,
John < 'ovode, can tell you all about that
little game, Mr. Scull. Do you deny
that your party used money to carry
the election? If you do, then we an
swer that we will put up a wager of
fifty dollars that your candidates for
Congress and Senator both sent large
sums into this county, and if they will
step into the witness-box and be sworn,
we will rest our case upon their own
testimony. What do you say to this,
neighbor Scull ? Come, walk up to
the scratch ! In conclusion, if all vo
ters are so immaculate in your estima
tion, especially all who vote the "Rad
ical" ticket, how do you account for
that singular admiration of President
Johnson's policy, which distinguished
thecolutnnsof the Herald A Whit) from
other "Republican" papers, whilst Ed
ward Scull was Collector of Internal
Revenue, and how do you explain the
opposition to that same policy mani
fested in that same journal, since Ed
ward Scull is no longer Collector as
aforesaid ?
THE New York Tribune has already
abandoned the proposed Constitutional
Amendment and now declares that the
Southern States must be reconstructed ,
upon the basis of "Universal Suffrage
and Universal Amnesty." That
is, the people of the South, Jeff.
Davis, rebel soldiers and all, are to be
re-instated in full citizenship, if the
freed negroes be given the right to
vote. This is nothing more nor less
than a bribe offered the Southern peo
ple to induce them to adopt Negro Suf
frage. It is accompanied by the threat
that if they refuse to accept this bribe,
they will bepunished by exclusion from
representation in Congress, for an in
definite period. The Constitutional
Amendment was evidently only a snare
to catch such voters as would not face
squarely the question of Negro Suf
frage. The next session of Congress
will, doubtless, develop fully the insin
cerity of the Radical Disunionists in
putting before the country the proposed
Constitutional Amendment as the ba
sis upon which they are willing to "re
admit the Southern States into the Un
ion. Stevens, Kelley, Sumner, But
ler and others will repudiate the A
mendment and insist upon Universal
Suffrage. Then will come the tug of
war between the moderate and ultra
factions of the Radical party. There
are breakers ahead, depend upon it !
We want no more of the scourge of
war. Quite enough of blood has lieen
spilled and treasure wasted. The coun
try needs peace, that the people, by set
tling down to their old callings and
pursuits, may restore material prosper
ity and happiness. Humanity shrinks
from the shedding of fraternal blood,
and the great majority of the Ameri
can people, true to its instincts, desire
peace and fraternal fin-ling.
The Radical leaders, however, want
more blood. Jackal and hvena-like
the taste they have had only whets
their appetite for more. Blood ! blood !
Beast Butler and Forney, and the les
ser animals of the pack throughout the
country yelp in their feeble way, blood!
We are informed by telegraph, this
1 I Wednesday) morning, that Democrat
ic victories have been achieved in Ma
ryland and Delaware, and that all the
other States which voted yesterday, in
cluding New York, Illinois and Mis
souri, have gone Radical, New Jer
sey, probably, also, by a small ma
jority. There is little doubt, however,
that the Democrats have gained a num
ber of members of Congress. In Mary
land we gain a United States Senator
in place of Creswell, Radical. New
York city gives :{o,noo Democratic ma
jority. Horace Greeley is defeated for
Congress and James Brooks, who was
cheated out of his seat last winter, is
SUITS have been instituted against
several election officers for refusing to
take the votes of alleged deserters, and
the validity of the infamous law at
tempting to disfranchise citizens with
out a trial, will be thoroughly tested.
GET your neighbor to subscribe for
the GAZETTE. NOW is the time.

the Secretary of State's office at Har

Gov. SWAXN, of Maryland, on the first
iust., removed the Police Commission
ers of Baltimore, who had appointed
(as was proved in the investigation he
fore the Governor) thieves, bawdy
house keepers, and murderers as Judges
of Election. The gentlemen appointed
in their stead, were du !v qualified, accor
ding to law, but when they called upon
the ousted Commissioners to take pos
session of the office to which they had
been appointed, they were resisted and
upon the oath of some political oppo
; nents, were carried before a partisan
Judge and by him thrown into prison.
At the present writing this infamous
outrage remains uncorrected, and the
vile scoundrels who were appointed
judges of the dearest rights of three
fourths of the voters of Baltimore, are
still permitted to hold their places.
Thus have the Radicals resisted the
: law and set at defiance the authority
of the Executive of the State of Mary
land. Thus has revolution been inaug
urated by these political desperadoes
| and thus has been added another chap
ter of shame to the history of the un
fortunate city of Baltimore. Who

This has boon a day of intense exeite
niont in Baltimore, exceeding that of
the 19th of April, Early this morning
it w as currently reported that the Sher
iff was gathering a posse to aid the new
Commissioners in obtaining possession
of the Station Houses, where a large
number of the old police force were
stationed. The streets were tilled with
anxious and excited people, and large
crowds were gathered around and in
the vicinity of the Marshal's office,and
everything indicated a popular out
Messrs. Valiant and Young the new
ly appointed Police Commissioners,
went, at ten o'clock this morning, to
the office of the old Board to demand
the books, papers, and possession of
office, but were refused admittance at
the door. There wa*ait immengecrowd
in front of the office. All of the police
officers and the special police adhered
to the old Board, and there was much
hurrahing and groaning, Ac.
Finally, after a few minutes, the new
ly appointed Commissioners proceeded
to the office of Win. Schley, theircoun- j
sel, in Lexington street, followed by a ■
a vast crowd, mostly their political ad- j
lierents, to ask advice as to their future j
course. No police were with the crowd, ;
all the force being engaged guarding
the station houses and office of the Po
lice Board, and other places.
The people are now greatly excited,
and the thoroughfares are tilled with
anxious crowds. Business is pretty well
suspended, and there are significant
indications that the military may be
called upon before the day ends, which
if done, and the old Board persist, they
may he arrested, and the city put un
der martial law.
Gov. Swan is here, and more officers
and soldiers are visible than usual.—
Things look very squally.
At noon, the new Commissioners,af
ter spending about an hour with their
counsel at his office, got into a carriage I
having a document, understood to be a j
formal demand for the delivery of the I
office into their possession.
They took a circuitous route, and af- j
tor making a detour of about one mile '
to avoid the crowds, approached the
Commissioners' office, where their up- j
pearanee was the signal for tumultuous j
demonstrations of disapproval by the ;
now largely increased crowd.
They were again admitted to the en- j
closure, and at the door of the office !
were met by the Clerk of the Comrnis- j
sioners, who received their document,!
telling them that the Commissioners j
would immediately consider the mat
ter and make their reply in writing.
Messrs. Valiant and Young then
drove off to the corner of North and
Baltimore streets, to the conservative
headquarters, where they wore received
with loud cheering by the crowd gath
ered there. It is now understood they
are organizing a new force. Quite a
number of the old force resigned last
night, and reported to Messrs. Young
and Valiant this morning.
Gen. Canby is here; but will not call
out the troops unless an absolute riot
occurs, which has not yet taken place.
It seems that the new Board are de
termined to persist in their efforts to
obtain possession of the station houses,
and the old Board seem equally deter
mined to resist them.
Things just now looked very feverish
and it was momentarily expected that
an outbreak would take place, in which
event martial law will he proclaimed.
About noon to-day, six companies of
United States regulars (infantry) arri
ved here from New York,and marched
at once to Fort M'llenry.
2 P. M.—The new (Commissioners are
still in their new office in North street,
busily engaged in appointing their new
police and other officers. They are also
appointing judges of election for next
Tuesday. They demanded from the
old Board a written statement of what
they designed doing, giving two hours
for a reply; but no reply has yet been
sent, and probably none will be. It is
understood that the new Board have
determined that the election next Tues
day shall be conducted under their rule
at newly selected election precints,
whilst the old board are equally deter
mined that said election shall be held
under their orders, at the same old pre
cincts, with the same judges; hence if
United States troops do not interfere
(and they are not much inclined to do
so), two separate eiec ions will be held,
the radicals voting at one place and the
conservatives at another.
2) P. M.—The Police Commissioners,
Young and Valiant, have been arrested
by the city authorities, and are before
JudgeßondjOftheCityCriminal Court,
on a charge of common disturbers of
the public peace. The excitement is
very great, but there is no lighting.
Sheriff' Thompson lias also been arres
ted for illegally swearing in new police
< Ifficers.
At the Court House a few of the reg
ular police force appeared in the vesti
bule, and commenced at once to eject
the Sheriff's posse, who were crowding
up the stairway from thesouth entrance
to the Sheriff's office above. A scuffle
ensued, and for a time there was con
siderable confusion and much threaten
ing language used. Many of the spec
tators becoming alarmed, made a hasty
exit from the building, causing much
excitement outside.
Presently the new commissioners
were seen approaching from the north
endof the building, in Lexington street.
They had scarcely entered, when Mar
shal ('armiehael appeared, coming from
the direction of the Central Police Sta
tion, at the head of a large body of po
lice, who made a rapid entrance, and in
a few minutes cleared the Sheriff's pos
se out of the building.
On entering the Criminal Court, a
Deputy Sheriff appeared, andannouae
ed that the bench warrants for the arrest
of Valiant and Young had been served,
and in a few minutes thereafter the
Sheriff appeared with Messrs. Valiant
and Young in custody.
The Court informed them that there
would he an opportunity afforded them
to procure counsel. Presently their
counsel appeared, and inquired for the
affidavits upon wh'tMi the arrest had
been made.
The State's Attorney briefly recited
the evidence that had been given by
the witnesses upon whose testimony the
bench-warrants for the arrest had been
The counsel for the new commission
ers then proceeded to argue that the ar
rest was an unwarrantable one. Their
clients were the duly commissioned
Commissioners of Police, and were ex
ercising only their legal authority.
Judge Bond, however, gave his deci
ded order that each of the parties (Val
iant and Young) tie required to give
bail in the sum of S2S,INK) to keep the
peace towards the Board of Police ofthe
city of Baltimore.
Sheriff' Thompson was also required
ito give bail in the same amount. It is
understood that all the parties refused
to give bail, and it is expected they will
be committed.
There are reports that they intend to
appiffi to General Canby to be released
from custody. The new police officers
have disappeared from the streets.
Some of them have been arrested.
All is quiet, but a deep interest is
manifested by the large crowds of peo
ple in the streets, eagerly discussing
The Commissioners and the* Sheriff i
have just been sent to jail.
Some excitement and riotous demon
strations took place Ui the neighborhood
ofthe newspaper office on the announce
ment of the result of the proceedings in
court, but the police promptly ended
the matter by arresting the parties. It
is believed that the whole affair will
now pass off without any serious breach
of the peace.
The Excitement Sulwitlliig.
BALTIMORE, Nov. :>. —The rain this
evening has probably prevented a seri
ous riot. Until nightfall the excitement
was intense, and there was every ap
pearance of a serious collision. At this
hour (midnight) everything is quiet,
hut public feeling is such that an out
break may be looked forat any moment.
A generous sympathy forGov. Swann's

The Stale of Affairs on Sunday.
BALTIMORE Nov. 4—Sunday Noon.
The counsel forGov. Swann's newly-ap
pointed Commissioners have made ap
plication to Judge Bartol, of the Court
of Appeals, for a writ of habeas corpus
to bring before him the parties now held
in custody by the Warden of the City
Jail, under the order of Judge Bond,
of the Criminal Court.
It is rumored, probably with truth,
that Gov. Swann went to Washington
Fresh Complications.
BALTIMORE, Nov. I — lo P. M.—The
writ of habeas corpus has not yet been
served at the jail, but will be to-mor
row morning, and the friends of the
newly-appointed ('onlmlssionersclaim
that the warden will have to make his
return immediately, it is currently
reported that there will be a new set of
judges of election announced to-mor
row as appointed by the new Commis
sioners. The registers of voters, it is
also reported, have determined to re
turn their lists only to the judges who
shall be appointed by <iov. Swann's
Commissioners. If this he so, there
will be fresh complications. There is
no doubt that the Police Board will ar
rest all persons assuming to act in any
capacity as by the authority of the reg
ularly appointed Commissioners.
All Radical revolutionists in Balti
more and a large importation from
other States, it is said, have been arm
ed and put on as policemen by the old
hoard. The Radicals are now fully
launched in treason against the State,
and, unless they rapidly recede, they
will soon be in collision with the mili
tary forces of the Government.
It is a crying outrage that one-fourth
the qualified voters of Baltimore should
in defiance of right and law, be allow
ed to disfranchise the overwhelming
majority and riot in treason unrebuked.
Has not Gov. Swann the nerve to do
his duty and carry out the laws? We
fear not.
SANFOUD CONOVEK, (tlkts Charles A.
Dunham, one of the assasination wit
nesses, and one of the persons who was
implicated in a recent conspiracy to con
vict Jefferson Davis, by means ot sub
orned witnesses, of being an accomplice
in the stssassination of I'resident Lin
coln, was arrested in New York last
week and taken to Washington. He
was arrested on theaffidavits of W illiani
H. Roberta, s. A. Hoare t and L. C.
Turner, who charge him with perjury.
This is the same fellow with whom Joe
Holt corresponded and to whom numer
ous sums of money were sent to secure
witnesses against Davis. The Radical
villainy will all come out some time or
other—and then the country will open
iD eves and wonder.
The Fexiax Tkiaes. —The Fenian
trials were resumed yesterdey, and
Daniel Whelans was placed in the dock.
On application of his counsel, Ins trial
was postponed until December 12th.
Mr. McKenzie announced liisreadiness
to proceed with l'arrize's case, but the
main witnesses not being present, it
was postponed until Tuesday next. The
Grand Jury then entered court with a
true bill against Thomas Cooney, Thom
as School, william Dugan, and John
O'Connor, ail Fenian prisoners. Coon
ey was then placed in the dock, and
pleaded not guilty. 1 lis trial was fixed
for the ldth inst. School was next put
in the dock. He claimed to be an
American citizen, and pleaded not guil
ty. His trial was fixed for the loth inst.
Duggan pleaded the same, and his trial
was also fixed for the 10th instant.
Bi'EFAi.o, Nov. 5. —Considerably ex
citement prevailed at Fort Erie last
night in expectation of a Fenian raid.
The cause ofthe panic seems to have
been the arrival of the United States
steamer Michigan, which has come to
restore the Fenian arms captured last
June, and a Fenian demonstration on
Sunday afternoon on the iron works
portion of the city, where Senator Mor
rison and other prominent Fenians
made speeches. After the meeting a
crowd followed thespeakers,and it look
ed as though some demonstration was
to be made.
A person having some gold about him
was seized as a british spy, but was res

lax the secretions of the liver as promptly and ef
fectually as blue pill or mercury, and without pro

A HUMBUG. —How often we hear
• this expression from persons reading advertise
! ments ot patent medicines, and in nine cases out of
| ten they may be right. It is over 19 years since I
: introduced my medicine, the VENETIAN LINIMENT,
j to the public. I had no money to advertise it, so
! I left it for sale with a few druggists and store
-1 keepers through a small section of the country,
i many taking it with great reluctance; but I told
! them to let any one have it, and if it did not do
all I stated on my pamphlet, no one need pay for
it. In some stores two or three bottles were taken
on trial by persons present. I was, by many,
! thought crazy, and that would be the last they
would see of me. But I knew my medicine was no
; humbug. In about two months I began to receive
, orders for more Liniment, some calling it my val
! uable Liniment, who had refused to sign a receipt
' when I left it at their store. Now my sales are
'■ millions of bottles yearly, and all for cash. I war
j rant it superior to any other medicine for the cure
i of Croup, Diarrha-a. Dysentery, Colic, Vomiting,
j Spasms, and Sea-sickncss, as an internal remedy.
