CKIVTR* HALL, Fa., Pec., 10 187S
It is gratifying to know that congress
has got to work in earnest. As early as
Wednesday of last, in committee, one
member called another a liar.
Wade Hampton had his leg amputated
the same dav, 10th, that he was elected
to the United States Senate. >\ e think
he will never forget that date.
It leaks oat that the Repnblicane of
Louisiana raise,! seven thousand dollara
to help along their campaign msomeol
the Congressional districts;that ffiu
thousand dollars were sent to the di*
trict where Madison Wells was running
and that Wells pocketed the money aud
made no contest. There's intimidation
for you.
We were informed a few days ago
that a democrat, who had been we I
served with office by hia party, was de
tected at the late election, putting out
democratic tickets with tMrtin'n name
left off. In the entire county there were
only about half w doaen democrats who
led off in the work of opposition to the
democratic nominee for congress and
succeeded in leading a fiew dozen voters
out of the right path by misrepresent**
tion. We imagine that some Urns or
other this half doxen will wish if bao
not burnt its fingers by going into lb*
discreditable job.
Now then for pr*U and lager-beer
—in Philadelphia, the other day, a
Chinaman married a German girl, lhe
parties to the ceremony were John hoy,
an almond-eyed lanndryman. and a Ger
man girl, six feet high, named Frederic*
Miller. The courtship was of three
weeks duration. The ceremony was per
formed by the Rev. Mr. Barrel!, of the
Baptist church. In addition to John s
friends, there were present the mother,
uncle and brother of the bride, and a
few other -Melicwn mn." The festivi
ties consisted of wine and cake.
There are still reports of workmen
dying in Braxil, belonging to the expe
dition which left Philadelphia last sum
mer. A carpenter, who went out with
one of P. AT. Collins' expeditions, has
jnst returned to Philad. He bays be
tried to come home some time ago on
account of the weather, aud that Mr.
Collins objected for fear there would be
a bad report of the place. He save the
medical treatment of the sick is herrible
the physician in chief prescribing bnt
one kind of medicine for all aorta of dis
ease, and the temperature rising to 135
degrees in the shade in the daytime.
Forty-two died in two months. The
break-bone fever is the natural result of
the climate, and out of 275, 130 were
sick on November 2nd, with an almost
positive certainty that 75 would die.
England isjust now experiencing what
the United States went through within
the last four years. We had onr big
failnrea, followed by gloomy financial
outlooks and a lose of confidence until
every hearth in the land felt, and atill
feels, the shock.
The failure of the city of Glasgow
bank, followed by the Caledonian bank
are producing the same state of affaire in
Brittain. A cable telegram says the fi
nancial situation haa become extreme
ly gloomy and threatening. It is feared
that the losses caused by the failure of
the City of Glasgow Bank, the cloeing of
the Caledonian Bank, and the suspension
of the West of England and South
Wales Bank, when all known, will
amount to so large an aggregate as to
destroy for a season all confidence ; that
a general panic will follow, and that the
year, will close with a feeling of distrust
such as has not been seen in England
within the memory of this generation.
The failure of the West of England and
South Wales District Bank is aow be
lieved to be a very bad one, and in some
quarters it is thought that its stockhold
ers will find themselves compelled to
pay not lees than ten or eleven million
dollars. The Caledonian Bank's affairs
look, worse than was at first thought.
The Bellefonte Watchman and a few
other republican papers attempt to ridi
cule Gov. Curtin's contest against Yo
cum. The Watchman declares Curtin
can't prove the frauds he specifies, from
an innate wish that the rada may gain
one congressman at least in Yocnm. In
this instance the has not ons
word to otter against radical frauds, bnt
secretly glories in them, as part of its
own work.
The HnfcAmun, besides, slyly charges |
that dsmocrats committed franda. That's j
fine, ain't it? If any dsmocrat is impli
cated in any fraud againat Curtin, we'll
bet an old hat it was a Meek-Democrat,
and not a true blue one of the good old
School. There were about a half dozen
eo-called democrats, who were educated
by Meek, who did work with bim in an
underhanded game to defeat Curtin and
the rest of the democratic ticket.
Conkling, while Blaine was making his
big say, sat at bis desk reading a book
all the time. Conk don't like bim from
The detectives have not yet got even
a smell of Stewart's body. We don't
want a smell of it, sure.
Seth Yocnm feels much demoralized
since last week.
All the independent and the more
sensible of the republican papers pro
mounce Blaine's splurge a failure.
The Omaha Herald statas the honor and
dignity of the State of Nebraska are at

world that a Commonwealth of 400.00U
people ia powerless to maintain order.
Desperadoes mob, kill and burn alive at

are so groat that tho leading citizens of the

done sooner, the Legiitature should, upen

sad order can be restored.
This is the state of affairs in a so-called
yea, a radical, state, and is * pic
ture as herribie as any that Blains of any
other breeder of sectional strife can paiai
for any southern state. If this story were
told of Georgia, or Louisiana, or South
Carolina, it would be the text for an ava
laacbe of abuse of southern democrats aad
the "solid south," But since it is from s
quarter where radicalism has a seat, of
coursa there will not be any tartAer notice
taken of it, then that there is a bad *t*t#

It is reported that the senate electoral

So long a* the republicans do not elect j
colored men to congress from some of
their numerous districts in the north, it j
is all idle l*#h to talk sympathy for the
negro in the south. The northern rads
have not yet elected a single negro to
any office. Hypocrites!
And, aaya an exchnnge.- Isn't it some
what surprising that, with our large
amount of colored population in the
North and the large amount of love for
them, the Republican party never, no.
sk\ kk. thinks of electing a single color
ed man to onr State Legislature *>'
ought to elect at least a half doten col"
ed men to the Legislature for two
reasons, Ist. To give the colored ni

To practice that equality that is preach

The House was brought to a square vo:e

A special correspondent of the Timet,
Dec. 10, writes as follows from Be!!e*,
fonte: To-day Governor Curtin served
notice of his intention to contest the
right ofbeth 11. Yocum to the scat in
the Forty-sixth Congress from the 1 wen
tietb district of Pennsylvania. This no
tice covers about seventy page* of legal
cap," closely written, and consists of
ninety-two specifications. Illegal votes
to the number of four or five hundred
are charged to have been polled for \ o
rwm in the county of Centre, principally
in Belle/onte, Howard, Milesburg and
Philipsburg boroughs, and in Rentier,
Boggs, Burnaide. College. Ferguson,
i Halfmoon, Howard, Huston, Liberty,
I Patton, Rush, Snow Shoe, Spring, Tav
'lor and Union townships. In addition
'toillegal votes having been polled for
Yocum, gross frauds are charged and .
specified ia I'hilipsburg, Benner, Col
lege. Ferguson and Lioerty which is be j
lieved is aufficaeat to Titiate the entire
poll of these district*. Of caozse a grea: '
deal of irregv larity and misconduct on
the part of election officers is also speci
fied. But as far as.this county ia con
cerned the Governor reliss upon the
illegal vote* polleJ for his opponent and
the actual frauds perpetrated in bfhalf
of Yocum. There is enough of this in j
Centre county alone to reverse Vocum'a !
majority two or three times. Wholesale j
bribery of voters can also be proven, the
evidence of which may prove very <
troublesome to men heretofore stand-j
ing high in political and financial cir-j
r In Clearfield county about eight hun
dred illegal and fraudulent votes are
charged, mostly in the boroughs of C'ur
wensville, Houtzdale and Osceola, and
in Brady, Bradford, Burnside, liersiar.
[ Girard. Graham, Gnlick, Goshen. Hus
ton, Morria, Pike, Union and Wood
[Wrard townships. In some of these dis-
I tricts the grossest frauds were j>erpetra
tJ. In <me township over fifty persons
voted for Yocum and the balance of iur|
Republican or Greenback tickets on
forged tax receipts. The manufacture
and distribution of false and forged tax
receipts was carried o systematical* ail
over tbe county. No one who desired
te vote against Curtin lost the opportu
nity of so doing because of the non-pay
ment of taxes. This fraud was partici
pated In by both Republicans and
Greeabackere, although it was under the
especial superintendence of William C.
Arnold, tbe chairman of the Republican
county committee. Knowing full well!
the responsibility of newspapers nnder
the libel law, we distinctly and positive
ly charge that this man Arnold, with bis
own hand, forged more tax receipts,
which were voted upon in Ciaarfield
county, tbau Yocum's majority. Be
sides manufacturing and distributing
these fraudulent tax receipts he in per
son bribed voters by the score. Were

crime committed by him against the
election laws during the recent cam
paign, aad in each case sentenced to the
maximum imprisonment provided hy
law, his combined sentences would not
expire until after tbe adjournment of the
One Hundred and Forty-sixth Congress!
That he will be arrested, tried, convict
ed. there can be no reasonable doubt.
Whatever may be true of your city poli
tics, heretofore, as a rule, elections have
been fairly and bonecily conducted in
tbe country. Here and there an illegal
vote would be polled, in consequence of
tbe error of judgment in honest election
officers. Money has not been recognized
in this part of tbe Bute aa a legitimate
factor in controlling votes. The people
of all parties are alike interested in the
conviction and punishment of the |>er
son who first introduced it ialo our
rural politics. Whether or not Yocum
and his immediate friends will endeav
or to defend and screen Arnold we can
not, of course, say. If they do they
avow themselves as partakers of his
In some of the districts in Clearfield
county the election officers were not
sworn at all; they did not number the
ballots as they were voted : they kept
and returned no lists of voters, and did
not seal up and guard the ballot-boxes
after tbe election, but left them for a
week or more open and exposed. These
things, it is true, did not occur generally
over the county ; they occurred only in
a few districts where tbe illegal and
fraudulent voting was the greatest and
wh Ate Jhe Republicans and Greenback
ers combined had the entire election
boards. The fraudulent and illegal votes
polled for Yocum ip Clearfield county,
and which can be clearly and fully
proven, amount to several hundred, and
when we remember that his certified
majority is only eewnty-three the proa

after Congress meets is not very brill
In the other counties of the district-

An instant silence prevailed in (be

unbroken until the juuior Senator from
Maine concluded !is speech and the
noise of mingled applause and hisses
was heard. K.verv (senator in the city
was present and ail save one listened
with the greatest attention. The solita
ry exception was Mr. Conkiing, Mr.
ltlaiue's ancient enemy, who during the
letter's speech did uot look up from the
l*ruaal of a bundle ot manuscript which
he appeared to be revising. The Sena*
tor from New York was almost as much
an object of attention from the peculiar
ity of bis bearing as the henator from
Maine. Mr. Coukling was probably un
aware of this or he would hare observed
the co4fWy that hedges the Senate on
these occasion^."
Mr. Blame's speech was ciiaracxerued
by a total absence of proof of ail his
statements. He began by a virtual ad
mission that he had no evidence of the
commission of outrages in the South
ull r 'ng the recent elections aud followed
with a ycaudalous attack up n the
Southern lemocrats. He attempted to

on Hie colored vole and that this had
been set aside by the exerc se of force,
l'be speech was of the old "outrage" type
the vernacular of which seemed to be
distasteful to the benator. Mr. Blaine
closed iu half an hour, and Senator
Tburman took tua floor, thrust the fore
finger of his left hand in bis vast pocket
twirled hiseye-glaasee in bis right bind
and introduced tne Hemocratic amend
ment to the original resolution. He said
that Mr. Blaine seemed to be more anx
iousio tesatl .Southern Democrats than
to viudicata lix rights ot universal suf
frage. He began ina speech ia a very
mild tone of voice, but when ti IM
tented the resolution as a string upon
which to hung speeches ami to arouse
hatred the galleries were car
ried by his earnestness and cheer
ed loudly The Vice-President rapped
for order, and gave notice that the gal
leries would be cleared if the disorder
was repeated. Mr. Tburman resumed
tus remarks, and claimed that the noto
rious Freedman's Bureau, a republican
institution, was the original creator of
the color Due and responsible for the
warmth of race distinctions in the South
which the Senator from Maine .n his
speech had attempted to intensify. Mr.
Tburman alao saw in the attitude of the
Kepublican party in the Senate a dis
position to face completely about and re
trace the steps taken so boldly a few
years ago when the negroes were en
franchised without en educational quali
fication. The attempt to re dues the
representation in Congress from the
Southern States was the first note of the
backward march. The proposed inves
tigation, he contended, was created for
this purpose of diverting the attention of
the pocpln from the true business of
Congress, which x this time was to leg
islate in tfte interest of reviving trade
and wound finance. In his estimation,
American suffrage was threatened far
less by the alleged use of threats and
violeuce than by the corrupting influen
ces of money spent at the polls. In con
clusion Mr. Thurman eloquently assert
ed that in every part of the country the
educated, cultivated and mlpjligent vo

Kdrnundsand Blaine attempted to trip
up Mr- Tburman in his argument, but

The March ot Improvement.
In the year 1840 wo commenced to have
greatly improved generator* of electrici
ty, to ihti electricity came to be cheaper
and more manageable* In ltfif the flrit
patont for it was iuucd. nml that to an
American. Frosn that year thre liaa been
a stream of patent* constantly increasing j
l*i volume. The alactriral generator* have
been steedlly itnpr.ired and the tondl
lion* of producing the light are better un-j
deraliicil. Electricity i now cheap and
we know how to ue It. To day the *olid
and permanent success of the electric light
I* achieved and guaranteed. Kiperience
in it* constant practical u a* a light houte
beacon eitead* to fifteen year* 1 cotuid
er it eitablieed alw that all the deiirabte
qualities and properties of gas-light are
found in the electric ligl t and that the
electric Itgtit ha* dosirablo qua!.lie* in ad
dilioß. Ihe relative odel of equal queilli
tie* et gaslight and electric light will gen
erally determine which should he med,
hut ther* will be many cute* in which the
advantage* ef electric light will be tocen
epu-uout that gaslight will not be thought
of. Ido net want to be understood a* ay
ing that the electric light it going to tab*
the place of ga* for all purpose*, but for
beacon light*, lighting street*, theatre*
public and privata picture galleries end
libraries there is no doubt it will supercede
ga*. If you enuid get the same quantity
•f light out of gat, the heat would he sti
iliag ; and again, the electric light is much
better for the eye. ssi*t people tuppotf
that light depend* on beet, but it hat been
demonaleted by Dr. Draper that there U{
no relation at all between light and beat

Popularity of the Electric Light
\ . u tee 1 am very favorat * to electric
light. It wat used filu-sn year* ago lit
Kngland and Franc*, and to-day it ie ued
by all oivilited nation*, in light house*
and on tteamthip*. We her# have the
be*t Improvement* in the electric light,
sad there i* no good reaton why we should
not have utilised it ten year* agu. The
electric l'.gl.t wu subdivide# aad used for
illuminating jmn*.4** in a private ret)
dene* at MhWxu, Mat*., thirteen year* ago ,
In wMr youth none of u* taw an illumina 1
[lion greatar than that produced bv five wtj
til candle* burning in a room. Now, v
would not tit la a room under a light thai j
wat nut a* strung a* that produced by Lt-'
teen or thirty ewadlet. That make* me I
think thai when we bavelhe electric light
it will not be a cheeper light then ga*. as
w* will want (till more light About
twelve year* eg* Horace Greeley wat a
| member of an aetociation to promote the
success of the electric light, in wbkh he
.took a great interest, aad hi* p*l-*r pub
i lithed eom* articie* at the time which
treated the eubiact very intelligently. You
read la the newspaper* a g >od deal about
the difficulties which lie in the way of di
viding the current or dividing the light
This idea of a difficulty in dividing the
light i* a bugbear Some people teens to
think Ibst when yeu divide the whole sou
will not have two halve* left.
Ktuily Subdivided.
W hat is there in nature that canent be
divided without leas ing all the part* that
were equal to the whole? There u not
anythiac under heaven so easy to h* di
vided at electricity, all that it neceetary
being to divide the conductor* of the cur
rent proportionally. It he* been show a
by scientific men in ivng'and tbet the

trie light at 4'tJ at at lUU mi'ei, and at the

We know mind as something that car.

cannot. All force and motion must have
sa immediate origin in lb* mind. But
the planet* ere moving now , th*V must b*j
moved by a mind : tbe motion must orlgi -

It it tbe power of Carlyle and Kichter that
they have lived in the pretence of the Di

power of that groat poet and philosopher
who stood with us when 1 was last bore.
But the proof—tbo proof from science:
You have in your room a clock and an i vy j
plant. The clock it a piece of mechanism,
but it it inert matter, and did not put it
self together. Did the ivy out its#! to
