Tin: Jladicah held a meeting In thi
plneo on Tuesday evening, nt the Court

the nut men of Hradfbril County. Wo
refer to tlu Hon. l Merctir and How
tieorge liuulon. Tho burden of tholr
discourse wits the eirusdfty of " Anterl
can citizens of African descent" with
whttu mull. From whnt win eufd It
could bo clearly Inferred tlmt wlilto liven
liud no rights which tho black man was
bound to respect.
Morcur apologized for his vote Ini fa
vorof negro stitrrugo In tho District of
Columbia on two grounds ! Tlio first
was, tltut the olllcorn to boeleeted iutho
District wero municipal or loud, mid
thewi, that negroos of tlio District
wero more intelligent and liettr educat
ed than the best educated white- man In
his audience. This l.s tv fact which ho
must have discovered by association
with the citizens of Hloomsburg mid
the negroes of thoDIstrictof Columbia.
Had ho given tho names of his white
associates hero and his negro acquaint-
juiced in "Washington tlw public could
havo formed their own opinion of tho
torrectness of his conclusions. I.aiidon
was eloquent, pathetic, mul vociferous.
Now ho was hero, now there, but al
ways upon tlio negro, without refureucu
to sexes. Wo luivo heard ITf him as n
mioudam prcaelvcr, but did not know
that ho still claimed to exercise tho func
tions of mnlnister of theUospel until wo
listened to his glowing account of a ser
mon ho had recently delivered to a ne
gro congregation In "Washington. If
tlio contortions and grimaces of tiie
eountenaiHw of his negro audience
quailed his own, wo can only say that
whllo soma may havo been amused,
others must havo boon disgusted. Ho
informed us of two facts In relation to
this congregation. First, they had
heads, and second, brains. If Mercur's
educated negroes were present on that
occasion, we strongly suspect that r.an
don saw in them what they failed to
discover in him brains.
In this connection it Is proper to add
tiiat I.andon is unquestionably a man
f varied acquirements. Law as well as"
theology and politics must have bc-
ured no small share of his attention,
dierwUe ho could not havo surprised

A SIGNIFICANT HE'CORD.
In tho House of Representatives, May
Mr. Julian, of Indiana, offered the
following Resolution :
Hexolecd, That tho Judiciary Com
mittee be instructed to inquire into the
expediency of reporting a hill provid
ing.that hereafter tho elective franchise
fdfnll not lio denied or abridged in any
of tlio Territories of the United .States
on account of race or color ; and provid
ing further, and thereby giving notice
of tlio fact, that henceforward no State
which the people of any of tho said
Territories may organize shall bo ad
mitted into tlio Union wIiomi Constitu
tion shall sanction such denial or
abridgement of the elective franchise.
Mr. Kldrldge moved to lay tho reso

Tho resolution was then adopted.

Tun llradford Argus, published at
Towanda, Pennsylvania, tlio former
homo of Judge Klweli, in referring to
his recent unanimous nomination for
Congress, speaks of him as follows :
Judgo Elwcll is one of tho few men
of distinction who havo a vast number
of attached and ardent friends, ami sel
dom, if ever, an open enemy. Ho is of
mat raro class or men, prominent in
public affairs, who unlto a generous,
kindly, and unselfish naturo with steady
and profound intellectual strength. I lbs
selection to represent tills district was
entirely unsougnt, and illustrates solely
tho spontaneous sense of tho peoplcA
not tho management of wiro-worklng
politicians. It is almost unnocpssiirv.
therefore, to pass any tribute upon Ids
traits and virtues, to ho disseminated
among nis oni mentis and noigliljons in

Judgo Klweli, previous to his oleva
tlon to tho Ueneh, maintained at tlio
liar of llradford County and thoadjoin-
iNixuii u supremacy wnicn never
disturbed tlio equanimity of his man-
ner.s, or aggravated an immodest opin
ion of himself. His hand was always

benefit of a larger fee, ornindo them tho
victims of ill-considered counsel.
Tho clioico which fell upon him for
- juugesniii oi mo i wenty-iirst District
was made, without sollcltntlnn. Uv n
Jlur fully enlightened in regard to 'his

cIiomhi career of life, ti position Milted
In nil respects to ids umbllion and his

tallied by his ubillty and learning, ho
lias been put in nomination, ut tho risk
of personal paeri lice, and with extreme
reluctance on his own part, for mi ofllco
(o which, if elected, lie will bring a

ti reputation unsullied by personal triek
ory, ft heart unskilled in tlio devious
dishonesty nf political intrigue. Ho is
u man, thus, in every sense of tho ca
pacity and character, to become nu hon
est nud eminent servant of tlio people.
Tlio blameless record Mr. Klweli lias
maintained is beyond the slightest as
persion of Ills political opponents, who-
over moy may no, wnerover mey may
bo found. Hut tho friendship of those
who profess with him sentiments in
common, must not passively permit his
elefftit. If the-o combine, Ids election
is beyond a doubt j and tlio wholo dis
trict may bo redeemed from that relic
of Radical nils-rule, which, sustained
by narrow self-interest In this county,
Is dying by rapid degrees everywhere
else in the country. Knergy mid or
ganization will insure complete success,
The lower counties will give to Mr. Hi-
wen largely increased majorities; a
proper vigilance In llradford alone, Is
necessary to elect him.
Wo call upon tho people, who havo
made Ills nomination, to make Ids elec
tion sure, to organize at once mid see
mat no votes are lost.

This afternoon a procession, including
the military, was In line in the neigh

Immediately on the stoppage of the

As early as four o'clock p.m. a large

Tliis continued till after seven, when,
amid a very storm of cheers, tlio vari

and tho officers succeeded in clearing a
way to tho City Hall, up to which the
President's carriage drove, and he, de
scending, walked up the steps, accom

itUMAKUJJ, DIGAMY, AND TIIE
AIiout two years since a wedding
wmik piaco at mo olllco of Alderman
uoiiiddson, and a wealthy old gentle
man named liurns, then re.sidiinr in
Manchester, but since deceased, became
thu husband of a prepo-sessing danisiil
of sweet sixteen. After enjoyintr the
sweets of connubial felicity for the brief
space ot six months tho aged bridegroom
died, leaving his youthful partner the
snug sum of ten thousand dollars. Be
ing very fond of paying visits to the
rural districts, as well as to the irravo oi
lier dear departed, sIio frequently had
recourse to tho livery stable of Andrew
.luckinun, for thu purpose- of hiring ve
hicles. Hero she met a young man
named Clay Crider, who was engaged
by Mr. Jacknian in tlio capacity of
groom or driver. At the lady's own re
quest crider always took charge of tho
team when slio went out. After a time
they became intimate, then allcctionate.
mm miaiiy me young widow threw her
sen into tho arms of the "lackey," mul
declared tlio full measure uf her passion.
Another marriage took place In the
dingy office of Alderman Donaldson on
the tenth day of hist January, and Cri
der became tho lawful successor r
Bums, not only in tho infections of tho
ludy, but in tho management of her
Jiroperty. Everything glided smoothly
with them for a time, until tlio father
of the bride learned that Crider had left
a wife and two children In Gettysburcr.
After investigating tho report . mul bi-lixi-
fully satisfied of its accuracy, lie r'm.-iir.
" u oiueo oi Alderman Donalson.
where ho preferred a ehargo of bigamy
against tlio husband of his daughter. Cri
der became cognizant of this mutter, and
ero ho could bo arrested ho'llod from tho
city. Ho returned on Saturday, how
ever, and on Monday was arrested by
Oflicer Sanber, who at hls'ro(iiest con-
voyeu mm to tho homo of Mrs. Crider,
Allegheny City. Ho Implored her to
furnish tlio necessary ball, but slmoniv
laughed, and chucklitnr him under i.,
chin, bid him goto tho penitentiary liko
a man. Ho turned from her disgusted,
and Iu two hours after was consigned lo
tlio county Jail to await trial. I'iltsburg
Gazette, August 20.
