President of tho United States In re
gard to UU alleged intemperance, and
ineludos In Its assault bomo ltniu;lnary
Members of Congress. According to
tills nbandonod Journal tho President
and his Congressional friend "hob

should do dirty work for tho Radical
oneinlcs of tho President will not ns
tonlsh any one who Is familiar with Its
past course, or comprehends tho posi
tion and motives of tho men who man
ago It ; but It Is surprising that It should
expect Its malignant falsehoods to bo
received and tolerated by Its readers
who aro not onemlea of tho President
or of thoso measures of national policy
nud of constitutional government which
ho supports. Wo havo no Idea that
theso despcrato men bollovo one word
written by tlrem ou this subject thoy
bellovo no more of it than does P. John,
their confederate adviser und friend,
under whoso inspiration they act and
whoso work thoy porform. Tho Presi
dent's house is a house of honorable
and arduous work, and not of ruvclry
or dissipation. And no man who ever
lilted tho high ofllco of President has
been moro laborious, regular, and irre
proachable than tho present Incumbent
in tho performance) of nil his duties at
the Executive Mansion. Order, sobrie
ty, and hard work characterize tho
"Whito Ilouso ; nor havo there ever been
any complaints, from any responsible
orintclllgoutfeourco, of dissipation with
in it since tho present Chief Magistrate
assumed tho duties of ids olllcu; nor
havo any Members of Congress, been
accused of " hob-nobbing" in connec
tion with visits there made until tho
charge appeared iu tho prostituted col
umns of tho Democrat and Star.
It la truo there havo been groundless
charges mado against tho President of
Intemperance, known to bo false by all
who aro personally acquainted with
him, and distinctly refuted even in tho
columns of leading Radical Journals.
They aro tho coinage of embittered en
mity at a timo of political excitement,
and are unjust and false.
In former numbers of our paper wo
wrote upon this suject with Intelligence
obtained as a resident of Washington
bofore commencing tho publication of
tho CoiiUMitiAtf, and from friends and
acquaintances in that city since. And
we have nothing further to add to our
remarks before made, except to say thut
from subsequent information our con
victions then expressed havo been
titrongthcucd and continued.
By an orror of tho pres3 in our last
number wo were mado to say that Gen
eral Geary's majority was ubout fifteen
thousand less than tho Republican ma
jorities ot 1801 and 1805. Tho urtlulo
should havo read that his majority was
ilftecn thousand j being less than thoso
of tho years mentioned. By fuller re
turns it now appears that ids majority
is somowhat greater than tho ilguros
then given, although several thousand
boldw tho mrjorities of his party in 1801
and 1803. The Republican majority in
tho Legislature upon joint ballot will bo
eight less Jtlinn it was last winter, but
mill it willo decided. It is probable
that Governor Curtis will bo selected as
United States Senator as colleaguo to
Mr.l$uckalow, which will bo much moro

Tb the Editor of the Columbian :
Having a little leisure to-day, and
thinking you might Ilko to know if any
Conservative tuou wore in oxistenco in
Bradford since the election, must bo my
excuse for writing you at this time
Moreur, tho high salary and negro suf
frage candidato, is elected to Congress
by a small majority, owing to a tremen
dous inereaso In tho Radical vote of
this county. Iu addition to tho clique
of politicians at Towanda, thoy havo
thirty-three thousand dollors worth of
county and Pedoral olllcos, all of which
wero brought Into direct action in long
ways. All things taken Into considera
tion, wo mado a good point, and havo
increased tho Conservative voto some
ilvo or six hundred la this county,
which will aid us in tho future, as this
light between radical and revolutionary
action of tho Rudleal party Is to be con
tinued from year to yi'ar, until tho su
premacy of tho Constitution and an
undivided country is obtained.
Tho Radicals claimed a majority of
fifteen hundred for Mcrcur iu tho dis
trict, but that is leaving them, and if
they can have ton or twolvo hundred
thoy will havo much moro than they
deserved. Columbia County did well
for Mr. Elwell. All honor to her for It.

It would bo worso than ttsolesu to
pretend that Democrats anil Conserva
tive lire not grlevouily dl-appolntod In
tho result of tho late elocllou. It was
conlldently expected that wo would
carry tho entire Stuto ticket, eloct a ma
jority to tho lowor branch of the Gen
eral Assembly, and gain at least turoo,
If not four, Congressmen. Instead, wo
havo gained only one Oongrejsmau.
Tho majority in tho Btato has boon re
duced fully one half, It Is true, but tho
election of a Radical Legislature, which
secures tho election of Morton to tho
Senate, Is a cruel oUSet to this moagro
Morton is moro obnoxious to the De
mocracy and Conservatives than nny
other man In tho State, and tho hopo
was entertained thai ho would meet with
a crushing defeat which would make
his permanent retirement from politics
necessary. But tho result has showu
that tho Democracy havo underrated his
power. To htm and him alone nro thoy
Indobted for tho defeat. No othor man
In tho State could, In tho short space of
thrco months, have oirected so complete
a revolution in the public sentiment of
tho Republican party. Up to tho timo
of Morton's Masonic Hall speech, his
party in this Stato, with the exception
of tho adherents of Mr. Julian, iu tho
burnt district, was almost unanimous In
support of President Johnson's restora
tion policy; Morton himself was known
to favor it. For years ho and Julian
havo been deadly enomlos, hating each
other with a fervor surpassing that of
Abolitionist nnd Copperhead.
Mr. Julian was recognized as the
leader of Radical impracticable of tho
Stato, while Morton was the champion
of the conservative bulk of tho party.
Morton has bitterly denounced Julian,
on tho slump and in private conversa
tion, while the organ of tho Julian
family at Richmond has teemed with
exposures of his Evcolleney's corrupt
administration of his ofllcc, and dark
hints at the loathsome licentiousness of
his moral character. Tho lion Morton
and the lamb Julian do not oven now
lie down together, but eontinuo to hate
each othor cordially. Morton has cut
completely undor Julian, and stolen
his kingdom. Tho latter's chances for
figuring in the United States Senate,
which, second in making suitable pro
visions for the host of other Julians,
was tho dareiug ambition of his heart,
are now slimmer than ever.
Peoplo at a distnnto, unacquainted
with the manner In which elections
havo boon conducted iu this city, imme
diately under tho eye of Governor Mor
ton, will, perhaps, bo astonished to
learn that wo havo gained live thousand
voles in thts township. Had this been
really a change iu public sentiment, it
would havo been tnost astounding; but
it is, in fact, morely tho suppression of
fraud. Probably not moro than a few
hundred voted against tho Radicals who
voted for them in 1S(1, but In that elec
tion Democrats by hundreds wero
prevented from voting, while a Massa
horo voted until Its members wore tired
out with tho work of marching from
one poll to another. The aggregate vote
now falls near a thousand short of 1801,
and tho Radicals havo a majority of but
ono thousand thrco hundred. Tho do-
cison of tho election board prevented, in
a measure, fraudulent voting, and tho
result as announced Is a fair index of
A most infernal outrage was porpo
trated at tho little town of Trenton,
Blackford County, on Saturday last.
Trenton is a small place containing a
dry-goods store, blacksmith Bliop, a few
dwellings, a whiskey shop, nnd other
adjuncts of a cross-roads trading post.
Tho natives aro Democrats of the pri
meval school, with unlimited faith in
tho continued existence of Andrew
Jackson, for whom thoy aro reported to
havo voted at every Fall eloctiou until
within tho past four years. A small
neighboring meeting was held in this
place last Saturday, a hickory polo was
raised, a small national flag hoisted,
and a few speeches hardly worth report
ing made by embryo politicians, aftor
which tho meeting dispersed, leaving
tho flag flying. On tho samo day a
Radical muoting was held at Hartford
City, the shire town of Blackford Couri
ey, at which Nelson Treslcr, tho Radi
cal candidate for Secretary of State,
mado a violent and Incendiary speech.
While tho meeting was In progress
somo drunken Radical came iu and re
ported that tho Copperheads had raised
a Rebel flag ot Tronton. Immediately
a crowd of about thirty half drunken
Radicals, under tho lead of a man
namod Abbott, was raised to go to Tren
ton and tear down tho flag. Tho party,
all mounted and nrmod with sabres and
pistols, proceeded to Tronton, galloped
Into town and surrounded tho ilagstalf,
whore tho discovery was mado that In
stead of a Rebel Hag It was tho national
banner, with its full complement of
thirty-six stars. Determined not to
havo their trip for nothing, thoy con
cluded to haul it down anyhow. Tho
Hag was accordingly lowered, and thoy
began tearing it In strips, when an old
man named Laudon, sfxty-two years
of ago, who keeps tho villago store,
came up nud protested against their tear
ing tho flag. IK) was knocked down
with a sabro cut, which fractured ids
skull, nud cruelly beaten. His 6on,
Lowls Laudon, and his daughter Fanny,
an interesting and plucky young lady,
came to tho old umii'a rescue Lewis,
armed with n hulchot, engaged Abbott,
while tho young lady tllng a cudgel,
dealt blows right and loft, which wero
far from being " lovo puis," as many n
bloody head could testify. Tho fight
between young Laudon aud Abbott was
desperato and bloody. Abbott handled
tho sabro with vigor, If not with dex
terity, aud Laudon used his hatchet.
1-Inally, niter receiving ruveritl sovore
cuts, by a lucky blow with tho hatchet
he nearly sovcred Abbott's wrist, and
tho iwbro fell from his grasp. Seizing
the fallen weapon, Laudon, who Is an
old cavalry soldier, was at home. He
dealt his blows so dexterously that ho
soon had six of Ids assailants hor uu
combat, ono of whom h reported mortal
ly wounded. Tho assailing party then
withdrew, cnrrylng with tlium their
wounded, but leaving wveral swords,
hats, and pistols on tho field. During
tho melee a rufllau placed tho muzzle of
a largo navy revolver within a foot of
Miss Fanny's head nnd pulled tho trig
ger, but fortunately It failed nt tho cap.
While In tho act of cocking for u second
phot, a stroke from the sabro of Lewis
stretched him senseless on the ground.
Thu next day tho assailants, reinforced
to tho number of two or three hundred,
sent in a courier to Tronton with a
demand for tho restoration of all tho
captured proporty nnd tho payment of
twenty-flvo dollars for a watch lost In
tho melee, with tho alternative of hnv-
lng the town burned In ease of refusal,
Thu few Radicals In the placo paid tho
monoy, nud sabres, hats, and pistols
were restored, whereupon tho besieg
ing force withdrew.
In Plalnflcld, Hendricks County, on
election day, an old man named Miller
was forced to voto tho Radical ticket,
and n patent mcdlclno agent from New
York, who was only utopplng over
night, was terribly beaten because ho
refused to voto. North Carolina refu
gees, who only arrived tho Saturday
previous, voted to tho Iest of tholr
ability. Iu such n place It is not at all
singular that not a single Conservative
voto was cast.
In Richmond, Saturday night, a Con
servative meeting, uddressed by Gener
al Meredith nnd Judge Gooding, Unit
ed States Marshal for tho District of
Columbia, was broken up and tho speak
ers placed In imminent danger of their
lives. Nothing but tho coolness and
determination of " Long Sol" saved
These facts show the riotous tendency
of the Radicals In Indiana. In this city
the election was unusually quiet, tho
business men of the Radical party hav
ing become alarmed and exerted them
selves to (pilot tho lawless feeling that
had been cultivated among tho more
turbulent. For once the police did not
act tho part of more partisans, but did
their best to preserve order. It is fortu
nate that 110 disturbance was created.
Alarmed at tho threateidng demonstra
tion of' the organization knowu as the
Grand Army of tho Republic, the Dem
ocrats bad prepared for bloody work,
and had more than five hundred picked
men, heavily tinned, on the ground,
ready to resist to tho bitter end any vio
lence which might be offered them.

A WOMAN FOR CONGRESS IN
2b the KlnUira of t!ie Ettiltlh Omyrewionnl Dtttrtcl;
Ai.Tiioucm, by the Constitution of
tho Stato of Now York, woiunn Is do-
nicd tho eloctlvo franchise, yet she is
eliglblo to olllco; therefore I present
myself to you as n candidato for Repre
sentative to Congress. Belonging to a
disfranchised class, I havo no political
antecedents to recommend nio to your
support, but my creed Is free speech,
free press, free men, and free trade, the
cardinal points of Democracy. Viow
ing all questions from the standpoint
of principle rather than expediency,
thoro Is a fixed uniform law, as yet un
recognized by either of tho leading par
ties, governing alike tho social and po
litical life of men und nations. Tho
Republican party lias occasionally a
clear vision of personal rights, while in
its protective policy it seems wholly
blind to tho rights of property and in
terests of eommerco; while It recog
nizes the duty of benevolence between
man nnd man, it teaches the narrowest
selllsliness in trade between nations.
The Democrats, on the contrary, while
holding sound and liberal principles iu
trado and commerce, havo over in their
political affllatlons maintained tho idea
of class nnd east among men ; an Idea
wholly at varlanco with tho goulus of
our freo Institutions, nnd fatal to a high
civilization. Ono party falls at ono
point nud ono at another. In asking
your suffrages believing nllko In free
mon nnd freo trado I could not repre
sent olthor party as now constituted.
Nevertheless, as an independent can
didato, I desire nn election at this timo,
as n rebuko to tho dominant party for
its retrogressive legislation in so amend
ing tho Constitution as to make invio
lous distinctions on tho ground of sex.
That instrument recognizes as citi
zens all per.-ons who obey tho laws and
support the Stato, nud if tho constitu
tions of thu several States wero brought
Into harmony with tho broad principles
of the Federal Constitution, tho women
of the nation would no longer bo taxod
without representation, or governed
without their consent. Ono word should
not bo addod to that great ehartor of
rights to tho insult or injury of tho
humblest of our citizens. I would
gladly have a voice and voto in the For
tieth Congress to demand universal suf
frage, that thus u republican form of
government might bo boeurod to every
Slate in tho Union.
If tho party now In tho ascendency
makes its domand for " negro sulfragu"
In good faith, ou tho ground of natural
right, nud because tho highest good of
the State demands that thtj Republican
idea bo vindicated, on no principle of
justice or hafoty can tho women of tho
nation bo Ignored,
In vluw of tho fact that tho freedom
of the South nnd tho millions of for
eigners now crowding our Western
shores, most of whom represent neither
property, education, nor civilization,
nro nil, In tho progress of ovents, to bo
enfranchised, tho host Interests of tho
nation demand that wo outwolgli this
Incoming pauperism, ignorance, und
degradation with the wealth, education,

Tnr.i'.H nro good rontons to suppn.o
thnt an energetic movement in regard lo
Mexican affairs will eooii be made by
this Government. OurMinlstor to Mex
ico, Colonel Campbell, has been sent for
by tho President, and nrrlved on Sunday
night. Mr. Plumb, or New York, will
probably bo appointed Secretary of Le
gation. Tho President Is desirous of n
prompt solution of tho Mexican ques
tion, and, it Is npprohended, will not be
tardy In Initiating vigorous measures.
It is not at all unlikely that Instead of
United Stales regulars being employed
In tho occupation of Moxico, If such nn
exigency should arise, volunteers will
bo called for from tho sevoral States,
who shall bo commanded by regular
United States olllccrs of tho higher
grades, or by officers appointed by tho
Stato governments, and tho volunteers
accepted by the Government pro rata
from tho several States. Probably not
more than twenty thousand volunteers
will bo required, thus leaving thu regu
lar army comparatively Intact for other
service. It is possible our Minister to
the Mexican Republic may bo nvorso to
crossing tho border except under tho
shield of General Grant, but that the
President means work on Mexican mat
ters very shortly there Is at this time
very reasonable probability.

TIIK fllUSlDKNT'H VISIT TO nALTIMOHIi
Significance having been attached to
thu visit of tho President to Baltimore
In connection with the recent inflamma

It is proper to stato that it was purely a
private visit to witness tho Imposing
closing ceremonies of the Cathode Coun
cil. Ho was politely received by the
Archbishop of Baltimore, nnd received
in a quiet und becoming manner by nil
tho distinguished prclntes prejont. So
far from tills visit having any connec
tion with tho difficulties prevailing be
tween Governor Swann and tho Police
Commissioners or populace, tho Presi
dent did not oven see Governor Swunn
during Ids stay In Baltimore, but after
tho ceremonies of tho Council wero over
