rriilny Morning. DocfmWcr 11. lts.
Congress assembled on Monday last.
This is the same old rump which un
dertook to impeach and remove Presi
dent Johnson, which invented recon
struction and which is the parent of all
the deviltries foisted upon the country
since the fourth of March, 18G7. Its
existence is fast drawing to a close.
Three months more will finish its ca
reer of infamy. What it may be ca
pable of in its hours of doting senility,
remains to be seen. It is given out
that it will attempt to "amend" the
Constitution by proposing to the legis
latures of the States the insertion in
that instrument of a clause conferring
suffrage upon all "men," irrespective
of race or color. Sumner is ready with
a proposition of this character, as is al
so Ivelley, of Philadelphia, and, doubt
less, there are other radical tinkers
who are anxious to be the first to put
this black patch upon tiie Constitution.
We have no doubt that this will be at
tempted, and we, therefore, call upon
the people to prepare to resist, by ev
ery legal means, this threatened inva
sion of their reserved rights.
The right to regulate the suffrage is
one which neither people nor States
delegated to the federal government
in the Constitution. It is one of the
rights which was reserved to them.
No one can dispute this truth. Even
the Chicago Platform, upon which
Grant was elected, acknowledges this
fact, by declaring that the people of
the "lo.vai states" must be permitted
to settle the question of suffrage for
themselves. But, now, a Congress,
elected without reference to this mat
ter, and upon the special denial of the
radical party that it was its intention
to establish negro suffrage, is about to
introduce a scheme by which the peo
ple are to be defrauded of this sacred
right. The amendment regulating
the suffrage, is to be proposed to the
legislatures already elected, the mem
bers of which were chosen without a
thought on the part of the voters that
the persons whom they were selecting
to represent them would be called up
on to decide a question of this charac
ter. These Legislatures are to vote
away forever this dear and cherished pop
ular right, and (he people themselves are
not to be consulted in regard to it at all.
Such is the present programme of the
radical leaders.
In our judgment the member of the
legislature who votes for the ratifica
tion of this amendment, is no better
than a highway robber and ought to
be summarily dealt with by his con
stituents. He deliberately robs the
people of their undelegated right to
settle the question of suffrage for them
selves. If he be a radical, he know
i ugly violates his pledges to his own
party, made in his endorsement of the
Chicago Platform. Neither statute
nor common law provides for the pun
ishment of such a criminal, because
his offence is against a natural right,
reserved by the people, and uncon
trolled by any written law. A coat of
tar-and-feat hers would, however, an
swer tile ends of justice.
Meanwhile, let men of all parties,
who would not sell their birth-right
for a mess of pottage, demand of their
representative* in the State legislature,
that they submit this suffrage ques
tion to the people for settlement. If
suffrage is to be conferred upon the
Negro, or the Chinaman, or the Indi
an, let the people, and not the politi
cians, do it. Who will dare to advo
cate the contrary?
A XI I rK LI rz.
The Radical speakers and newspa
pers boasted throughout the late ean
v ass that the poor man paid no taxes,
but that the burdensof the government
fell only upon the shoulders of the
rich, who were able to bear them. No
one persisted more in this mendacious
doctrine than the editor of the Inquir
er. On several occasions we exposed
this fallacy through the columns of the
GAZETTE. We knew—as well as ev
ery intelligent man in the country
knows—that we were right, and that
the Radical cry that the poor man paid
110 taxes was but an electioneering
dodge. For the benefit of the would
be "poor man's friend," we commend
the following to the philosopher of the
At Richmond, Virginia, oa Tuesday
last, Mr. Chase, in his charge to the
Grand Jury of the District Court said :
"We admonish you, gentlemen, to
exercise your utmost vigilance on the
subject. Frauds in revenue are an evil
which the whole land cries out upon,
and frauds upon the revenue are frauds
upon the whole body of taxpayers, and
no one who eats, drinks, wears, or is
sheltered under any roqf, however hum
ble, note escapes from taxation."
It is thus seen that Chief Justice
Chase takes the same views of the op
pression of the present system ot taxa
tion, brought about by the "rings" and
the nionied aristocracy of the country,
as the Democratic party holds on this
subject. These combinations are pow
erful, and can, nay, have already shift- j
od too large a "proportion of the taxes
oft he country ujon the laboring class
es. It is to remedy, so far as can be
done by the courts, this great wrong
that the Chief Justice so earnestly calls
the attention of the Grand Jury to the
frauds that are daily committal in
revenue. It is not for the benefit of
the rich and opulent that these evils
are to he ferreted out but for the good
of the humblest citizen, for no one
"however humble, note escapes taxation."
Put this in your pipe, Mr. Lutz, and
smoke it at your leisure.
It seems that Gov. Geary has deter
mined not only to carry the load
which his Deputy Secretary of the
| Commonwealth, Gara, laid upon his
! shoulders in his letter to the reeent Af
rican convention in llarrisburg, but to
weight himself even more heavily by
| issuing a commission of office to a ne
gro, in defiance of the constitution
: which he is sworn to support.
One Peter Smith, an African, has re
! cenlly been com missioned by the Gover
nor, as a constable, or policeman, for the
town of ITetfenstein, Schuylkill county.
The Governor, by this action, has set
; at naught the constitution of Penusyl
| vania, which, as every one knows,
does not recognize the negro as quali
fied either to vote or hold office. He
i has deliberately broken his solemn
oath to maintain that constitution, as
I well as insulted every white man in
the state, by issuing this commission.
> Doubtless, the Governor imagines that
the course lie has seen fit to pursue,
; will recommend him to the radical
j party for re-nomination. But we are
much mistaken if there be not men,
even in that party, to whom such a
bid for the favor of the ultra radicals
will bring nothing but disgust. Per
i haps the Governor will find out, some
j day, that the white men of Pennsylva
nia are not, after all, so very anxious
to take the negro into political partner
ship. If the coining legislature dare
I to cheat the people out of the right to
settle the suffrage question for them
selves, the Governor will learn, to his
heart's content, what it is to stand up
| on a Negro Suffrage Platform in the
Keystone State.
Next year there will be a most im
portant political canvass. The Demo
cracy, taught in the severe school of
experience, will nominate their strong
est men, determined to win the fight.
In view of the coming struggle, it is
highly important that efforts to in
crease our vote should be made at j
once and kept up until the election.
Now is the time to work. At present
their are some cool heads in the coun- i
try. Don't wait until radical false
hoods heat them. During the quiet of j
winter, people will read and reflect.— j
Will Democratic politicians see to it
that the proper kind of reading is fur
nished, so that the people may not be led |
to indulge in reflection that is false and j
baneful? A little effort would place a ■
good Democratic journal in the hands j
of such intelligent, thinking "Republi
cans," as possess the honesty and inde- j
pendenee to do right in spite of their j
party. Shall this be done?

November 28, ria I lays City, Dec. 1. —
The Cheyenne village of Black Kettle's
band was captured yesterday morning
at daylight by the Seventh Cavalry
Regiment, under Gen. Custer, on the
north fork of the Witchela river. One
hundred and fifty Indians were killed
and the bodies left in our possession,
and 53 taken prisoners. An immense
amount of property was destroyed,
consisting of 51 lodges, nearly 1,000
horses and mules, arms, ammunition,
horse equipments, robes, provisions,
etc. Captain Louis Hamilton was
killed in the first charge. Brevet
Lieut. Col. Harriet/., was seriously if
not mortally wounded. Major Elliott
is missing. One man of the 7th was
killed and 1-1 wounded. The tribe is
badly crippled.—The Indians, includ
ing women and boys, fought with
great desperation from the cover of
bushes and grass. When driven out
of the village many of the wounded
effected their escape. The victory was
complete, and will be a wholesome
lesson to the Cheyennes. Black Ket
tle, the principle chief, was killed.
The casualties are Major George L. H.
Elliott, Captain Louis M. . amilton
and 19 enlisted men killed* and the
wounded are Brevet Lieut. Col. Al
bert Harriet/, Captain Seventh Infan
try, supposed mortally ; Brevet Lieut.
Col. T. W. Custer and Second Lieut.
J. M. Marsh, slightly, and 11 enlisted
men. Col. Benton had a horse shot
under him. Gen. Custer returns here,
will refit, and again take the field.

NEW YORK.— A Girl Murders a Child,
then Roasts it on a Stove. —We have re
ceived the particulars of a horrible af
fair which occurred about a mile from
Corning, Wednesday last, November
25th. At the place indicated there re
sided a family named McCullough,
consisting of Mr. and Mrs. McCullough
and their three children, aged, respec
tively five, three and one and a half
years.—The husband is represented to
be a shiftless, indolent fellow, and his
wife has been compelled to labor to
support the family. She lias lately
been selling sewing machines, and on
Wednesday hist started on a trip
through the surrounding country for
that purpose, leaving her children in
charge of a girl named Barber, aged
eighteen years, whom she hired for the
purpose. In the evening the youngest
child cried and was fretful, when, it is
said, Barber threw it upon the floor
and stamped upon it until it was al
most lifeless. Then taking the little
one up she held its hands upon a hot
stove until ihey were terribly burned.
The child was too far gone to utter
more than a faint scream while it was
being roasted. Barber then threatened
to throw it into a well, when the oth
er children, who had witnessed the
whole thing, told her that if she did
they would tell their mother. The
girl then wrapped the child in a blank
et or bed-quilt, and placed it in a bed,
where it was found by the mother,
who returned home Wednesday night,
dead. The marks of brutality were
plainly visible on its little body, and,
after questioning the children, infor
mation was given the coroner.—After
an investigation lie ordered the arrest
of Barber, called a jury, and an inquest
was in session yesterday. The inquest
will be concluded to-day, and it is said
there can be no doubt as to the finding
of the jury.— Rochester (N. Y.) Union

Butchery of an Entire Family. —A lit
tle over a week ago a frightful tragedy
was enacted in Fentress county, Ten
nessee, near the Kentucky line. There
lived in that section a family composed
of an old iady, some eighty years of
of age, and her three grandchildren
one a young lady, another a boy of
twelve and the third a small girl. In
the neighborhood was a man named
Logsdon, ill-favored of face and of lit
tle character, who in some way became
cognizant of the fact that the old lady
had in her possession a considerable a
mount of money, the back pay of her
dead son, who had been a soldier, and
he resolved to secure it at all hazards.
Proceeding one night to the house she
occupied, Logsdon, with knife and re
volver, murdered the grand-daughter,
and left the boy for dead also. All the
money he found, however, was $75,
and with this he fled. The boy, who
fortunately survived, next day told the
tale of the bloody work of the night,
and the sheriff of Fentress county, as
soon as he could be notified, started im
mediately in pursuit of the murderer
with a warrant. He passed through
Clinton county, in this State, where he
was joined by the sheriffof Clinton, and
together the two sheriffs made their
way to Hustoaville, Lincoln connty.
Here they captured the murderer at
the house of his father, even ta fore he
had changed hisclothing he wore when
he committed the terrible crime, and
which bore the blood-stains of the cru
el murder.— Louisville Courier.
If all the legal white votes in this
country had been polled, and no illegal
negro votes had been polled, the
popular majority against Grant would
be over a million. Let Grant put that
in his pipe and smoke it.

An official account of the terrible disas
ters which have rrcently happened in
Switzerland, the losses from which can
lie counted by millions, has been re
ceived from the American legation at
the State Department, at Washington.
By a fearful rainfall which succeeded
an unusually dry season, much of the
cantons of Orisons, Tessin, the Valais,
Glaris and St. Gail and Uri have, in
consequence thereof, been literally des
olated by inundations. The mountain
rivulets and cascades suddenly swelled
to torrents swept villages, hamlets,
cattle, roads, bridges, dikes, earth and
stone as debris upon the tields below,
which are thus rendered forever hope
less wastes. The appeal of the authori
ties of the Canton of Tessin to their
more fortunate fellow countrymen of
ficially sets forth the effects of the
storm, and this description may be ta
ken as applicable, in a greater or less
extent, to the other cantons named :
"In the night of the 27th and 23th
.September, our canton was struck by a
frightful catastrophe. A volume of
water percipitated itself as a deluge in
to the valleys ofßleuio, of the Levan
tine, the Riviera, he Vernaseo and the
Maggia. This scourge was accompan
ied by the destruction of buildings and
by the fall of trees, by earth and rock
slides in such a manner as if all the ele
ments had combined to rival each oth
er in the work of devastation. All the
beautiful country that extends from
Giornice and Olivone to Biasca, unrec
ognizable to-day. is nothing but a mass
of debris. Roads, bridges and dykes are
destroyed; houses, mills and stables
have been swept away; the rich forests,
the fertile fields and vineyards, but
yesterday nourishing, have disappear
ed ; cattle have perished by the thou
sands, and that which adds to the con
sternation is the loss of more than fifty
persons, some surprised in their sleep,
and others the victims of their devo
tion, while attending to rescue ami as
sist the drowning. Fathers and moth
ers of families have been crushed un
der the falling houses, and their bodies
swept off by the rushing waters. The
disaster surpasses ail that imagination
can picture. Thousands of fam
ilies have been struck by the calamity,
and many of them have been reduced
to the last extremity—without roof,
without clothes, without bread, and
several deprived of their fathers."
Appeals have been made to the be- J
nevolent for aid to the despoiled peas- j
an try of Switzerland, whose foresight j
could not have evaded the terrible blow j
which has fallen upon them, and their
cry of distress goes up not only to their
own countrymen in the United States,
but with equal force to the benevolent
among Americans and residents here
of whatever origin or nationality they
may be.
A lictisitli'iil Colored Liuly.
A preacher in one of the most fash
ionable churches of this city said in Ids
sermon last Sunday: "I once babtized
a colored lady in the Atlantic Ocean, ;
and although she was as black as she j
could eouvoui- utly ix*> n-he looked
beautiful." "Colored lady" is a phrase
in harmony with what are called the
advanced idea.s of the age, and with
the Africanized religion of the majori
ty of our churches. This wench also
"looked beautiful" to the admiring j
minister, lie held her in his arms as j
the cold Atlantic wave struck her vel- j
vety skin, no doubt she clung to him j
with hope, if not with tenderness. ;
Then it was that she looked beautiful. 1
Then it was that the radiant "colored j
lady" won the admiration of the rev- i
ercud gentleman. The impression 1
was so strong that it survived the !
° i
shock of time, and so indellibiy stamp
ed his memory, that he makes it the
subject of a sermon, long years after
wards. An admiring throng of refined
white people, of old men and young
maidens—are treated to the meritsofa ;
beautiful black wench, as something
exceeding all ordinary human excel
lence. The object of this kind of ne
gro preaching, is to educate the people
in the political doctrines of the .Mon
grel party. Hardly a prayer is now
offered, or sermon preached, in which
some admiring reference is not made
to the negro. His name is oftener
spoken in the pulpit than the name of
Jesus Christ, and the ribald iulidel is j
less condemned than the doubter in :
the especial excellence of the negro, j
Such vile political sinks are th"su ne
