One of tho principal charges made
against our citizens in tho trials at liar
rlshurg, was that they had organized a
secret organization or society to resist
tho draft. This chargo (which was en
tirely falto) nppeared In nil tho cases
irieu anu was continued in mo printed
form of accusation used by tho Judge
Advocate. 'Namps and dates wero filled
In tho printed form, in each case, 'but
tho substatico of tho accusation was tho
samo In all tho cases, and convictious
upon it were had. The form of tho ac
cusation as It appeared In tho charges
and specifications against Stott E. Col
Ioy, ono of tho prisoners, was literally
Specification: "In this, that ho tho
said Stott E. Colley, a citizen of Colum
bia county, Pennsylvania, did unlto
confederato and combine with John
Rantz, Rohr M'Hcnry and many other
disloyal persons whoso names aro un
known, and form or unlto with a soci
ety or organization commonly known
and called by thonnmoof tho "Knights
of tho Golden Circle," tho object of
which society or organization was and
Is" to resist the execution of tho draft,
and provcut persons who havo been
drafted under tho provisions of tho said
act of Congress, approved March 3d,
1863, and tho several supplements
thereto, from entering tho military ser
vice of the United States. This done
at or near Benton township, Columbia
county, Pennsylvania, on or about Au
gust nth, lSGi, and at divers times and
places before nnd after said mentioned
There aro three averments In denial
of this chargo which were established
beyond dispute by tho evldenco and
which wo shall now state nnd sustain
1. That ibo (so-called) 'secret meet
ings,' referred to In this charge, wero
held In the spring of 1603 and nono
later than about tho month of May of
that year ; consequently that thoy wero
held nearly one year and a half before
the arrests wero made at tho end of
2. That they wero political clubs
simply, and had nd unlawful or im
proper object; and particularly that
they were not Intended, nor organized
and conducted, to oppose tho conscrip
tion laws of the United States.
3. That they wero not called or
known, during their cxistcuco by tho
namo of "Knights of the Golden Circle,"
nor was any such name ever assigned to
them in any quarter until the tlmo of
the trials or shortly before.
Reserving tho main body of the evi
dence in support' of these points until
our next number, wo will now only
cite the testimony of threo witnesses
examined in tho Rantz trial.
David Savage, sworn: I am a mern-
bor of thoso secret Associations. Tho
only secret about them was tho pass
word. Ve wero sworn to support tho
constitution of tho United States and of
Pennsylvania, and the' laws. There
was no organization to resist the draft.
Almost all the persons belonging to
this Association subscribed money to
pay bounties, Ac. Tho Associations
wero purely political. Rantz said to mo
ho had been In to see tho soldiers, and
told thorn thoy could hunt up all tho
drafted men und arrest them, and thoy
would not bo disturbed.
Nicholas Kindt, sworn: J. was a
member of theso Associations. They
ceased last May a year I think. Tho
password was the only secretin It. Tho
obligation was to support tho constitu
tion of tho United States nnd ot Penn
sylvania and tho laws according thereto.
Thero was no organization to resist tho
Martin Ammerman, sworn: I was a
member of theso Associations. They
ceased last spring a year. The oath was
as stated by the last witness. There
was no organization to resist tho draft.
Tho only secret was the sign of recog
nition. Never heard theso organiza
tions called Knights of tho Golden Cir
cle, till lately, and that by outsiders.
Not until wo had frccdracu was it
ever thought of that poor men could
walk up to tho Treasury and take out a
hundred dollars apleco" to help them
along in the world. That is tho propo
sition now boforo Congress. Thelandless
people of the South aro to havo two
millions of dollars set apart for them, to
assist them in purchasing and stocking
small farms, and getting together need
ful agricultural implements'. Allow
ing ono hundred dollars apleco, that
sum, will Just go around among twen
ty thousand persons. What is that out
of a population of say cloven millions
of souls? The very proposal suggests
Jobbery on Its face. Tho men who take
one hundred dollars this year would bo
sure to want another hundred next
year, and wo should bo brocdlng,
through tho Treasury', a race of publio
paupers. Not after this .fashion did our
sturdy white pioneers go out Into tho
wilderness of tho West with their fam
ilies, to encounter untold hardships in
subduing it, Cau thero bo any reason
why Government should sot up ono
class or men as farmers moro than
another? or bo moro" tender of tho
sufferings of ono class of poor men than
another? It Is enough that all who are
willing to work can conquer fortune
for themselves If the real Btulf Is in
them. If it is not, ono hundred dollars
Is not enough money to put it there.
Trumbull's Judiciary Bill. .
Tho.blll reported in the United States'
Senato on Thursday, by Judgo Triim-
uiiii,tjrinirrrmn or tho Jndlclary Com
mittee, defining tho Jurisdiction of the
Courts oftho United Btntes, strikes us
as a very strango document for hlrri to
present, or for tho Scunto seriously to
consider. It declares that "no civil
State Government exists in Virginia or
lexas, and no so-called civil StrCo Gov
ernment In ollhorofsald States shall bo
recognized ns a valid or legal Stalo
Government, either by tho Exocutlvo
or thojudlclal power nnd authority of
tho United States, until Congress shall
provide." etc.; and it declares that "tho
act of Congress, entitled 'an act to pro
vide for tho moro efficient government
oftho Robot States,' passed March 2,
1807, and tho several acts supplemen
tary thereto, aro political In their char
acter, tho proprioty or validity of which
no Judicial tribunal Is competent to
question, nnd tho Supremo Court of tho
United States Is. hereby prohibited from
entertaining Jurisdiction of any caso
growing out of tho oxccutlon of said
acts, In cither of said' States, until tho
Senators and Representatives from such
States shall bo admitted into tho Con
gress of tho United States, or Congress
shall rccognizo such State Government
as valid; and, meanwhile, all acts or
parts of acts authorizing an appeal,
writ of error, habeas corpus, or othor
proceeding to bring beforesaid Supremo
Court for review, any case, civil or crlm
inal, or other proceeding arising out of
tho execution of said act, and tho acts
supplementary thereto, or which au
thorlzo nn appeal In any caso from tho
Judgment of tho Circuit Court of tho
United States in a habeas corpus case
or proceedlng,bo and the samo aro here
by suspended," "and the Presi
dent is hereby directed to hold and pro
ceed with all the prisoners held in said
States by military authority without re
gard to any civil proceeding or authori
ty whatsoever t"
These words havo a strango sound In
tlmo of peace. This act, If it become a
law, will blot out civil law In tho States
named, and placo all power in the
hands of the military; unless, by Im
plication, It permits tho Circuit Courts
ofthoUnitid States to oxerclso juris
diction therein. But, if this is allowed,
no appeal can be taken to tho Supremo
Court, to which thoy nro subordinate,
If It permits Circuit Courts to settle
anything, as would seem to bo its In
tent, it makes their decision final, by
preventing an appeal. At all events.it
annihilates thcjurlsdlctlon of tho Su
premo Court oftho United States so far
as Virginia and Texas aro concerned
(why Mississippi is not. included wo
cannot imagine,) and glve3 tho military
full sway, If wo may take tho conclud
ing words of tho bill as declaratory ol
Its meaning and character. "The Pros
Identls hereby directed to hold, and
proceed with all prisoners held in said
States, by military authority, without
regard to aijr, civil proceeding or au
This bill places Virginia and Texas
even below tho-Terrltories, for in the
latter tho civil power rule; aud the
people havo tho privilege of appealing
to the United States Supremo Court.
Why tho civil power should thus bo
placed in such completo subordination
to tho military in Virginia and Texas,
wo cannot determine' We had suppos
ed that tho war was over, and that it
was not deemed necessary nor expedi
ent to suspend tho privllego of habeas
corpus in time of peace, especially to
prevent.au appeal to the Supremo Court
of tho United States. If this bill aimed
at the. Courts oftho States named, wo
could understand, and perhaps approvo
it; but wo cannot understand why tho
legitimate Jurisdiction of the United
States Supreme Court-over territory
subject to .the aovemraontof the Unit
ed States should bo curtailed as this
bill contemplates.. Is that Court tho
highest judicial tribunal in tho land
no longer worthy of confidence? Is it
necessary to.blot out ono oftho three
branches of the Federal Government in
order to preserve order and administer
Justice in any part of the territory of
tho United States?

to certify that Mr. Gcisz, Republican,

No one with common senso willbellevo

was prevented, nnd Mr. Forsyth receiv

many fortunes havo been mado nnd

to tho short space of onoyear! Soon will
the old year dio. Lit m profit by tho

Tho last ten years havo been, in this
country, devoted to strife and turmoil.
let us hopo that the succeeding ten may

Items of moment hero are somewhat
scarco and nearly all tho Interest seems
to bo centered in Iho action of Congress
concerning tho resumption of specie
payment, and tho currency. Tho new
Rail Road is in full and successful op

amount of goods ami produce, over tho
much needed Improvement. The Con

being discussed somewhat and ehanes:
of candidate upon both sides arc freely
canvassed by both parties. From any
standpoint,knowing tho bravery and
pluck of old Columbia, I should say
tho Democracy have a good prospect of
success before them.Radicalism in Brad

nothing but tho offices to be got from
tho Administration and tho county
omce hunters hold thoconcern together.
Wishing tho many readers of your
paper a "Merry Christmas" and "nap

I am Yours,
Wo shall look with somo anxiety and
curiosity to tho action of tho Senato on
thU remarkable bill, and for Judge
Trumbull's explanation of tho object of
tho Judiciary Commltteo in reporting
It. At present wo confess to our ignore
anco of any good reason for tho passage
of such ablll. It is plainly Inconsistent
with tho President's position in his
Messago relative to Virginia. Svhy
pass such a law for that State, if Con
gross intend to net favorably on' tho
President's retommondation and fe-ad-mlt
Virginia within a fow days, as It Is
hoped and believed thoy will? Uhe
Frauds among the Return Judges.
It can senrcely bo questioned, by nny
ono who looks carefully at the returns
.oftho election last week, that fraud has
,been resorted ton tho Board of Return
Judges in order to glvo tho certificate
of election, to tho Senato from tho First
dlstrictto Wm. W. Watt.The district is
composed of )lio First, Second, Third,
I'ourtn, Beventn, eighth, and Twenty
sixth wards. Tho return is: For Watt,
Republican, 13,010; for Diamond, Dem
ocrat, 12,810. In the same wards Geary
had 12,723 votes or 293 lees than aro
given to Watt; while Packer had 13,217,
or -107 moro than aro awarded to Dla-
mond. Williams had 12,831 votes, or
182 less than aro given to Wutt ; whilst
Pershing had 13,113, or 303 moro than
aro given to Diamond. Now, is thero
any reason why Watt should be more
popular than Geary or Williams, or
that Diamond should bo more unpopu
lar than Packer or Pershing? Tho pro-
sumption Isthutthovotoof neither of
these Senatorial candidates was govern
ed by personal considerations, but was
purely political. Thero is no reason
why Mr. Watt should run ahead of his
ticket, nor that Mr. (Diamond should
lag behind. Tho whole thing litis a sus
picious look, and Justifies the belief
that tho return Is a gross fraud,
A similar outrago was attempted In
tho legislative return for tho Thirteenth
district. Tho return Judge, who must
havo profited by thoknowlcdgoof the
means by which tho Byorly frauds wero
perpetrated somo years pgo, took his
returns to his resldeuco and placed them
in a book-caso, from which' they mys
teriously disappeared before tho next
morning. Officers of election usually
havo good memories as to tho very fow
figures required In a general return, but
this ouo had not. With his certificate

nearly a repetition of tlio Avondalo
horror at this placo .yesterday, At
about 10:30 a. m. tho breaker of tho
Nottingham miue.sltuated at thesouth
erii end of the town, was discovered to
do on lire. There were fifty.flvo men
In tho mlno at tho time, which Is one
of tho man-traps, like tho Avondalo
ono with but ono outlet vet. nutwith
standing this, no notice was uiven to
tho mou below that tho building nbovo
was 011 fire. Fortunately, it was dis
covered soon after it broko out, and,
witii great oxort Ion,. wns not only pre
vented from spreading, but was- extin
guished, tlio men below remaining all
tho whlloln ignornnco of their danger,
Tho fire was the result of gross careless
ness on tho part oftho company work
ing it. It appears that two stoves wero
kept in tho breaker to give heat to tho
boys employed thero to pick out tho
slato from tho' coal as It goes in tho
breaker, and iho pipes from theso stoves
were run directly through, tho wood
work of tho building, without any pro
tectlon. Tho result was what any sano
man might havo expected. Tho wood
work heated until it became of tho con-
slstcncy of tinder, and then ignited. At
noon somo of tho men camo up to din
ner, and, although overy oxcrtion was
mado to koep tho ilrofrom thqlr knowl
edge, tho fact leaked out and they bo
camo aware for tho first timo of tho tor-
ritilo fato they had escaped. When
thoy went down again thoy informed
tho rest of tho men in tho mine, nnd
tney at onco got tocethcr and hold nn
indignation meeting, and resolved at
oneo to go up oufof tho mine. When
they got up they assembled tho rest of
tnomen belonging to tho mine in nil
about fcoventy.five and held anothor
meeting, resolving that thoy would uot
again go down Into tho mlno until tliero
wero built two brick chimneys for tho
stovepipes, n watchman placed in tho
building night and day, and a bell at
1110 Dottom of tho shaft, so that thev
should have a signal when thero was
danger at tho surface Slncothat tlmo
tho mlno has not been worked, and tho
in en sun remain lirm. Tho proprietors
Messrs. Thomas Urodrlck & Co., not
being ablo to get any men to supply
tho places of their old hands.havo yield
ed to tholr demonds so far as tho two
cnimnoys nro concerned, nnd their con
st ruction has commenced; but they
think ono watchman in tlio uight is suffi-
lont, una uecllno to placo ono tliero In
tho day tlmo. Tho men say that this
only shows n willingness to protect
their own property, and ns their Jives
aro exposed In the tlay tlmo thoy say
tiioy snail insist on tho two watchmen
and also on tho alarm bell.
