    Friday Morning:. Xovfmber 1, 1867.
Last week an "election" was held in
that part of Military Reconstruction
District No. 1, comprised in what re
mains of the grand old Commonwealth
of Virginia. If anything were wanting
to prove the diabolical character of the
despotism erected by the Reconstruc
tion Acts, this "election" would amply
supply the deficiency. The scenes en
acted at Richmond, Lynchburg, Pe
tersburg and elsewhere, whilst the vot
ing was going on, beggar description.
Violence, riot and bloodshed, were the
order of the day. Arrests by the po
lice, and rescues by mobs of blacks,
were alternate incidents around the
polls and throughout the streets and
squares of the principal cities. If a
disorderly negro was put under arrest
by the police, a riot immediately en
sued, and then came the cavalry squad
ron, charging with sabre drawn, to
disperse the infuriated crowd. Ifa ne
gro attempted to vote the conservative
ticket, he was assailed by the blacks of
the "League," pelted with stones, and
beaten with clubs, until death, or a cav
alry charge, closed the scene. And
thus the farce, tinged with streaks of
the bloodiest tragedy, was played to its
end. The curtain fell upon the pros
trate form of Liberty, the assassin
Hunnicut standing defiantly upon the
stage, brandishing his bloody dagger in
triumph, amid the discordant yells of
a pandemonium of negro furies. Vir
ginia was Africanized and the only
possible end of Congressional Recon
struction was accomplished.
But we reeoil from further contem
plation of the subject. If the recital of
facts which are patent to the eyes of
all, could add any force to the self-evi
dent arguments against the revolu
tionary and pernicious measures of
Congress, we would not shrink from
giving them in full detail. It is, how
ever, unnecessary to dwell upon the
disgusting theme. The sensible, sober
though ted people of the North, have
already seen enough of the "Congress
ional plan," to convince them of its
monstrous character, as well as of its
utter futility. The glaring fact, that
the government of each and every one
of the excluded States, is turned over
to a herd of ignorant and brutal blacks,
to the exclusion of nine-tenths of the
whites, has settled the question against
Congress, and no matter how "elec
tions" held at the point of the bayonet,
may result, "Reconstruction" is as
dead as Julius Cesar. Requicscat in
"A POOR excuse is better than none."
Upon this principle our Radical breth
ren are trying to console themselves
over their recent defeats. They tell
us that their vote was not out, that
there was great apathy in their ranks,
whilst the Democrats polled their full
vote, &c.j &c. They don't seem to re
alize the fact that there is hardly an e
lection district in the State, in which
some of those who formerly voted their
ticket, did not this year cast their bal
lots for the Democratic candidates.
Considering that no pecuniary advan
tage, or official patronage, attaches to
the office of Supreme Judge, (the only
State office voted for) there was a very
heavy vote polled. It was never ex
ceeded, except last year, and is larger
than the home vote cat for President
in 1864. It exceeds by 80,000, the vote
of 1860, when the "Republicans" car
ried the State by 22,660! Let those
who talk about the apathy in the Rad
ical ranks, remember this fact, that in
1860, the Republicans polled but 238,-
400, and carried the State, as above
stated, by 22,660 majority, whilst this
year they polled 266,824, or 28,424 more
votes than in 1860, and yet are beaten
1,000. A little study of these figures
will enable the dullest intellect to dis
cover, that it was not "apathy," but
re-action , that defeated the Radicals at
the late election.
THE "best abused" individual, just
now, is General Apathy. Andrew
Johnson is no-where, compared with
him. Doubtless, the lazy, dozing fel
low is grievously in fault, but, after
all, he is not so much to blame for the
collapse of the Radical party, as the
people themselves. Take Ohio, for
instance. The largest vote ever polled
in the State, was cast at the late elec
tion. Last year the vote of the State
was 469,905, this year it is 484,227,
showing an increase of 14,319. The
Democratic vote increased 27,016, whilst
the Radical vote decreased 12,697, prov
ing that there was an actual change
from the latter to the former of, at
least, the last named number of voters.
This is the result of re-action , not of
CAN the Inquirer inform us what has
become of the Borie vs. Trott case ?
As usual the Radical tricksters have
undertaken to play theirgarneof 'count
ing-out' the Democratic candidates,
and their machinery was well prepar
ed for the execution of their nefarious
purpose. Taking advantage of the Act
of Assembly which provides for the
reception of the vote of soldiers in ac
tual service, under a requisition of the
President of the United States, or by au
thority of the (hrnmomcealth, they had
Governor Geary issue a commission
to one of their tools, authorizing him
to proceed to the regular army , and
take the votes of persons outside of the
Commonwealth, in the service of the
United .states. Accordingly this per
son proceeded to Fort Delaware.and not
withstanding remonstrances of the offi
cer commanding the Fort, opened an e
lection, and made a return of 118 votes,
113 for Williams and 5 for Sharswood.
(Of course I heo votes for Sharswood were
returned "to keep up appearances.")
This return was counted by the Phil
adelphia Republican Judges, and less
ens JudgeSharswood'sofficial majority
just 108 votes, his true majority being
1030, whilst the Fort Delaware fraud
reduces it to 922. Major Morgan, the
commander of the Fort, writes to W.
L. Hirst, Esq., of Philadelphia, that
but 33 votes were polled in all, and
that the grater portion of those who
voted had no right to vote for Penn
sylvania officers. This fraud, having
been so thoroughly exposed, the Radi
cal plotters, covered with shame, in
order to draw the attention of the pub
lic from their own infamy, commenced
a contest for some of the local offices
in Philadelphia, based upon the allega
tion of frauds in some of the wards of
that city. This is only the old dodge
of crying "stop thief," and we are well
convinced that nothing will coine of
it but idle gossip. The 1- ort Delaware
fraud cannot be covered up by any
such stale tricks, and the men engaged
in it, from Governor Geary, to the
miserable knave who forged the return,
even if they be not punished by the
laws, will sink beneath the contempt
and indignation of right-thinking men
of all parties.
THE history of the Republican party
in the United States is the history of
progress and liberty. Were it to die to
morrow, it wuuld leave such a record
as no other party in the history of the
world has left.— lnquirer.
There is not thesligh test doubt about
that! It freed and enfranchised three
millions of brutish blacks, to make
them slaves of a midnight League,
which compels them to vote at the
point of the bayonet, and it enslaved
five millions-of white people who are
not permitted to take any part in the
government under which they live. It
made prison-pens of the forts and pub
lic buildings of the country, and cast
men innocent of crime, into loathsome
dungeons, to suffer ineffable tortures
and die a death of horror. It doomed
men to ignominious punishments,
without judge or jury, simply because
they chose to hold and avow political
opinions opposed to its own peculiar
dogmas. It even hung up a defence
less woman, after heartlessly mocking
the tendersensibilitiesof her nature, by
exposing her to the devilish burlesque
of a trial before a military commission.
Finally, it wound up by piling upon
the country a debt that weighs the peo
ple to the earth, by imposing upon us
a most unjust, because unequal, system
of taxation, by inventing a plan to
keep ten.States out of the Union, at an
enormous expenditure of the people's
money, by ereetinga military despotism
over those States, and to close the scene,
by placing ten millions of white people
under the domination of three millions
of blacks. Verily, "such a record no
other party in the history of the world
has left," and, God be thanked ! that
record is about coming to an end.
THEoriginal order of Gen. Schofield,
in regard to the holding of the election
in Richmond and other large cities
in Virginia, named two days upon
which the voting was to be done. On
closing the polls on the second day, it
was discovered that there was a white
majority of about 500. As such a re
sult was not "on the bills," the polls
were re-opened, and another day and
night were given Hunnieutt to drum
up his blacks, and the voting of negroes
was kept up all that day and night, un
til the white vote wasovereorne. Great
God! what a mockery of the elective
franchise, is an "election" like that!
JUDGE WOODWARD has been elected
to Congress from the Luzerne and Sus
quehanna district, by a majority of u| -
wards of 0(H). He was elected to fill
the vacancy occasioned by the death
of Hon. Charles Dennison. Judge
Woodward was in Europe at the time
of his nomination and election, and
knew nothingof the action of his friends
in making him a candidate. His pres
ence in Congress will produce a rat
tling among the dry bones of Radical
THE Republican party must raise it
self above these "rings" formed for
mere spoils, or die of corruption.— In
Is it possible? Can it be? We are
overwhelmed with amazement! The
"Republican" party dying of "corrup
tion!" This confession, coming from
the Bedford Inquirer, is truly astound
ing. When we said previous to the
late election, that the "Republican"
party was corrupt, the Inquirer was
ready to swallow us, so enraged did it
become at the "infamous Copperhead
lie." But now it "acknowledges the
corn." Republicans! What more do
you need to convince you that it is your
duty to leave this party that is dying
of "corruption?"
Gov. BROWN now, of Tennessee, has
announced himself as a candidate tor
United States Senator. We wish Ten
nessee could find some one to repre
sent her who would add to the dignity
of the United States Senate, rather than
detract from it .—lnquirer.
Oh, ho! Your stomachs are getting
a little squeamish, at last. We had
thought Brownlow suited your taste
exactly. But bow can Tennessee find
a decent man among the dominant par
ty inlhat State, made up, as it is, of
renegade rebels and brutish blacks?
THE Inquirer seems to favor legisla
tion legalizing the running of street
cars on Sunday, in Philadelphia. Tut!
tut! that is not in accordance with
"great moral ideas !" Take care, boys,
lest you be "read out of the party."
i ELECTIONS will be held in New
i York, Massachusetts, New Jersey,
| Delaware, Maryland, Michigan, Wis
; cousin, and Minnesota, on Tuesday
next. The Democrats are hopeful of
carrying a majority of them.
The following article, copied from the
Baltimore Sun, of Friday, last, will
give our readers some ideaof the work
! ingof Reconstruction in Virginia:
GINIA. —Whilst Ohio has refused, by
an immense majority, suffrage to the
comparatively small number of color
red men in her population, Virginia,
with her vast body of emancipated
slaves, has just been subjected to the ex
periment of entorced negro suffrage in
an election for a convention to form the
organic law of the commonwealth.—
Weare much mistaken if the parade of
returns from that election, and the
figures, facts and incidents connected
with it, do not greatly accelerate the
reaction at the North which has been
manifested in the late elections in
Northern States. The spectacle which
has been exhibited in the Virginia elec
tion may well cause all men of any ca
pacity of reason and forecast, even in
the radical ranks, to pause and reflect
what is to be the end of such things.
What we have just seen in Virginia is
solid organization of blacks, as com
pletely under the control of their lead
ers as an army under its general in
time of war, not only marching to the
polls to vote down conservative intel
ligence, but to vote down all moderate
men, including those well-known
as the prominent Union men of the
State, and literally to hunt down, to
pelt with stones and threaten to hang
those of their own collor who attempted
to vote the conservative ticket, and fu
riously to assault the police when they
endeavored to protect conservative men
of their own color from their violence.
One illustration, out of many, of the
manner in which the leaders of the
blacks in Virginia have compelled
their followers to draw the line between
white and black, and make allegiance
to one Hunnieutt, an aggrarian white
radical, instead of Union principles, the
standard of qualification in the lateelec
tion of delegates to the convention, is
the defeat of Franklin Stearns, Esq.,
in the county of Henrico. Mr. Stearns
is a Northern man by birth, an origi
nal Union man of the strongest kind, a
gentleman of high character, great en
ergy, and tine business talents, and has
large interests identified with the wel
fare of Richmond and Virginia. This
gentleman recognized as one of the
most influential republicans of Vir
ginia, has been beaten by the president
of a local negro league, who is under
stood not to have received a white vote
in the county. Mr. Stearns has been
altogether disinclined to go to the con
vention, and only consented in order
to save the cou"ty from being repre
sented by a man thoroughly incompe
tent. Another case is that of a well
known leading republican, Lewis Mc-
Kenzie, Esq., of Alexandria, a gentle
man ol talents and political experience,
formerly justly acknowledged by the
colored men as their "best friend,"
who received only ninety-nine votes
whilst the selected" chief of the extrem
ists received one thousand four hun
dred and eighty-seven.
The frauds in registration; the injus
tice of the apportionment, which, with
a large white majority in the State, so
arranged the districts as to insure a
majority to the blacks in the conven
tion ; the contemptuous arraying of the
blacks against old Union men; the
infuriated and bloodthirsty assaults up
on those of tin ir own color who de
clined to vole their ticket, and whose
lives were only saved by the interposi
tion of the military and thepolice, furn
ish ample food for reflection of all in
the North who read the returns of the
Virginia election, and will intensify the
reactionary tide which has already set
in so strongly from Pennsylvania* and
other Northern States, and has com
pelled radical leaders like Chief Justice
Chase and the Governor elect of Ohio,
feeling the ground giving away under
them, to abandon an untenable and im
practicable position and seek safety in
more conservative ideas.
The reaction which has begun in the
North, and which the scenes just wit
nessed in Virginia will greatly
strengthen, arises from no animosity
to the negro, and from no desire to in
terfere with that improvement of his
condition and character which under
a healthful law of progression, must
take place, and which all men of just
and benevolent dispositions, both North
and South, desire to promote. But all
sensible and right-leeling people can
only see in the foolish and unnatural
process which is producing such fruits
of license and brutality as have been
borne in the Virginia election, great in
jury and ultimate ruin, not only to the
whites, but to the blacks of the South.
The more reflecting of the blacks
themselves in Virginia appreciate the
danger of this state of things to their
own race, and a prominent man among
them, Solon Johnson, of Richmond,
issued a card on the eve of the election
in which he warns the colored men
that the political slavery to which they
are reduced by designing leaders, is a
worse slaverv than it was before, be
cause it is of the mind ; that they ought
to avoid lines being drawn between
the white and colored people; that the
government was made for the good of
all, white and black, and that if they
persist in supporting the extremists of
that State, their friends at the North,
who will not permit them to voteamong
them, will not permit them to vote at
the South. The colored men of Mary
land, who have enjoyed greater oppor
tunitiesof education and elevation than
their race in more Southern States, can
not fail to .recognize, with all intelli
gent men elsewhere, the force of the
exhibition which has been made in Vir
ginia, and the utter futility of such
disgusting procedures to the advance
ment of their race. Anything so ridi
culous and monstrous cannot stand—
the evil must in time cure itself.

In reply to your letter of October 12,
received yesterday, General Grant di
rects me to send you the following copy
of telegram just received trom the com
manding officer at Fort Delaware:
FORT DELAWARE,Oct. 14,1867.
General E. D. Tounsend, Assistant
Adjutant General:
1 was in Philadelphia when the elec
tion occurred here. Colonel Howard,
who was in command, reports that a
citizen presented himself here with a
commission from Governor Geary, un
der the seal of Pennsylvania, appoint
ing him to take the votes of Pennsyl
vania soldiers at this post. Colonel
Howard told him that he was under the
impression that such an election wits
not legal. But as the man had a com
mission from Governor Geary, In allow
ed him to take the votes. I add, on my
own authority, that I have ascertained
that a large proportion of the men vot
ing had no vote in the State under any
circumstances. It is said only thirty
three (33) votes were polled, while over
a hundred (100) were returned. No of
ficers were concerned one way or the
other in this election.

TION. —We recommend the following,
from the Cincinnati Enquirer , to the
serious consideration of the Democracy
of Bedford county:
"The New York Tribune , in com
menting on the result of the recent
elections, makes the following sugges
tions :
" 'Flooding the country with print
ed matter, on the eve of an elec
tion, is a desperat.wesort, better than
nothing, that is all. No reliance can
be placed on it; little good ordina.ily
comes of it. But begin now, and syste
matically insure that every man that
has a vote shall have a newspaper, if he
will take it, and all is safe.'
"That is very true. If it is desirable
that the people be indoctrinated with
correct political sentiments, they should
be furnished with the arguments long
in advance of the election, in order that
they can thoroughly turn them in their
minds, and study them while working
at their benches, or on their farms, or
other places of occupation. Now is the
time to commence the distribution of
information, in a printed form, prepar
atory to the next Presidential election.
No election since the foundation of the
Government, can compare in import
ance to the one we are about entering
upon, and never before were the people
so imperatively called upon to inform
themselves as to the issues upon which
the contest must be decided. We have
gratifying evidence that the people,
Democrats and Republicans, are awak
ening to the importance of this matter.
Since the election we have received up
ward of three thousand new subscrib
ers, daily and weekly, one-third of
whom, we are written, are Republicans.
The sign is an auspicious one, and we
hope it will continue to be manifested
for months to come. Every person who
can afford it, should take two political
papers, one of either side. If he can
nut afford to take two, he should by all
means strain a point to take one, and
that one should be of his own political
faith. Immense interests hang upon
the event of the Presidential election of
1808, and every citizen should be pre
pared to meet the responsibility cast
upon him as a voter. The newspaper
is the cheapest instructor he can tiud."
LY.—The current number of this favor
ite periodical is a very good one. In
addition to its usual illustrations, inclu
ding its colored fashion plate, there are
three large plates devoted to fashions,
and another feature of special interest
to ladies, viz: a full-size pattern of
Winter cloak. The special departments
are not neglected, and there is the usu
al variety of excellent reading matter,
stories, poems, etc. This is the best and
most useful of the parlor magazines, and
no family can afford to do without it.

—Elisha Brady, a Radical ward poli
tician of Baltimore, was shot and kill
ed between three and four o'clock on
the morning of the 22d ult., by John
Bowers, whilst the former was in the
act of cutting the halyards of a hickory
pole erected by the Democrats. This
was too great a punishment for the
offence, we think, but Ben Butler did
not think so when he hung Mumford
at New Orleans for hauling down the
the flag. Nor did Gen. Slocum (or
Stanton) when he said: "If any man
hauls down the American flag, shoot
him on the spot."

It shows that the largest vote ever cast
in the State was polled at the late elec
tion. It foots up 481,277, which ex
ceeds any previous vote by 8,000. The
republicans polled 242,60-", for Hayes,
and the democrats 240,022 for Thurman.
Of sixteen congressional districts car

now go democratic. The heaviest re
publican loss in any one district is 7,000.

failing in this, made a rope from his

THE PLAN of the Washington Libra
ry Company of Philadelphia, for the
endowment of the Riverside Institute
for Soldiers and Sailors' Orphans, is one
that has been laid out in strict accor
dance with the terms of the charter as
granted for this purpose by the Legis
lature of Pennsylvania. This charter of
the Washington Library Company,
legalizes the very acts that its mem
bers are now performing for this noble
object. The plan as most of our readers
are aware, consists in selling stock at §1
per sliare, each share being accompani
ed by a handsome fine steel-plate en
graving, worth fifty per cent more
than is actually paid for the stock. —
Besides this, every share of stock se
cures one present in the great distribu
tion of presents to shareholders. Of
these presents the aggregate value is
§BOO,OOO, one of them being worth the
enormous sum of §40,000, another $20,-
000, another $lO,OOO, and one worth
$•>,000, and two worth $2,500 each, sev
eral worth $l,OOO each, and soon. This
is simply the plan in brief as adopted
and presented to the public. Every
shareholder will obtain some present in
the great distribution, besides the beau
tiful engraving at the time of purchase,
and each one has an equal chance of
getting a small fortune.
AN OLD WOMAN picking up bits of pa
per, twine and other sweepings about

genius of patience, perseverance and
hope in the pursuit of gain. It never
