" I know of no mode in which a loyal citi
zen may so well demonstrate his devotion to
his country as by sustaining the Flag the
Constitution and the Union, under all circum
A. DouaLAs
We are anxious that all indebted to
us for subscription to Globe, adverti
sing, printing, books, stationery, etc.,
etc., should make payment immediate
ly, or not later than the 20th of Janu
ary next. The first of the year is a
good time to square up, and wo would
feel extremely happy on the first day of
the now year if we could then say that
all indebted to us now had gave us a
friendly call. We desire to-keep square
with the world and "at peace with man
kind," but to do so wo must have our
own. We will expect those knowing
themselves indebted to give this call
their immediate attention
All persons having claims against us
will present them for settlement.
The Old Year.
The old year is rapidly passing away,
and we feel thankful that the Globe,
although it has passed through a rough
political storm, is still in a healthy
condition. During a part of the past
year our political course was such as
to sour the feelings of many personal
and political friends, but we had no
idea of being swallowed up by; the old
"Democratic organization" or driving
Union or Republican office-holders,to
the support of what they denounce as
"Copperhead" organs and "Copper
head" principles. Wo shall stand by
what we believe and know to be Union
principles; ingrates and mere seekers
after office can enjoy their rights.—
There are other interests than that of
office-seeking in which the people, irre
spective of party, aro interested. The
rebellion teas not crushed in a day,
neither was it crushed by the patriot
ism of men of one party only. There
.can be no permanent prosperity, per
manent happiness, or permanent Gov
ernment, but by cultivating and adhe
ring to liberal Union sentiments. The
independent and free people of the
county have our thanks for their con
tinued patronage.
Why Should Women not Vote ?
The question of giving the right to
vote to women is now fairly before the
country. It is being favored by some
of the most distinguished gentlem3n in
the United States Senate. We are
strongly inclined to favor female suf
lrage. One thing is certain, better
men would be elected to office if wo
men could have a vote. They would
be down on any man who should at
tempt to make himself popular by
"treating all hands," unless the treat
should be a silk dress, a barrel of flour,
or something of the kind. The Lager
Beer candidates would be nowhere.
Senator Wade on Female Suffrage,
The following letter was read at the
recent meeting of the American Equal
Rights Association :
SEITERSON, Ohio, Nov. 1800.
Susan B. Anthony Secretary American
Equal Eights Association
MADAM :—Yours of the oth inst., is
received, and I desire to say in reply,
that I am now and ever have been the
advocate of equal and impartial suf
frage to all citizens of the United
States who have arrived at the age of
twenty-one years, who are of sound
mind, and who have 'not disqualified
themselves by the commission of any
offence, without any distinction on ac
count of race, color or sex. Every
argument that ever has been or ever
can be adduced to prove that males
should have the right to vote applies
with equal if not greater force to prove
that females should possess the same
right; and were I a citizen of your
State, I should labor with whatever
ability I possess to engraft these prin
ciples in its constitution.
Yours very Respectfully,
Theodore Tilton on.Woinan's Rights,
OHIO, December 4,186 G
Susan B: Anthony—Myl Friend :
I cannot be at the meeting. lam like
a partridge ; I am wandering over the
prairies. But were I at,Cooper Insti
tute, I would claim the ballot for wo
men as.for men. It is said that wo
men don't want their political, rights.
This may be true of some women. But
the one woman whose rights I am
most bound to respect is an American
citizen, who wants the American citi
zen's Callot. While dth'el.' men; the're=
fore, may have reasons for indifference
towards wornan's right of suffrage, not
only sound principle but gentlenninly
courtesy make it my duty to break
my ballot in twain, like my daily loaf,
!Inc! share it equally with my wife.
•-• lam yours truly,
Tam:moan TILTON,
Lancaster has had another earth
quake. The Express of Monday even
ing says :—At about eleven o'clock
last night a sound resembling that pro
duced by thunder or a wagon passing
slowly over a bridge, was heard in
this city. If thunder, it must have
been from i cloudless sky, as not a
speck besides the stars was visible in
the heavens at the time. The phenom
enon was diffen,nt, from that experi
enced here last year, as no quivering
of buildings and other objects accom
panie,l the report.
In the U. S. Senate on the 11th,
Senators Anthony, Cowan, Wilson,
Wade and Yates, advocates female suf
frage. Mr. Wade declared that ne
groes would vote in every State in the
Union before the 4th of March 1869.
Mr. Yates contended that the people
had spoken at the late election and de
clared in favor of negro suffrage.
On the 12th a vote was taken in the
Senate on Cowan'ti amendment to give
the women a right to vote, and it was
voted down by a vote of 37 to O.
Thaddeus Stevens said in the House
on the 11th, that ho did not believe
Jeff. Davis could be tried for treason,
not that he had been guilty of treason.
His offence was that of a belligerent,
not of a traitor. Mr. Stevens' propo.
sition that every man appointed by the
President and rejected by the Senate
shall ho disqualified for holding any
office for a year was voted down by an
almost unanimous vote.
Mr, Rodgers, Democrat; of No ‘l , Jer•
soy, is strong in the faith. In conclu
ding a speech in the House on the 12th,
he used the following language: "God
Almighty in eternity will write in let
ters of gold, upon the front of the altar
of Christianity, the name of Andrew
Johnson as the ono pure patriot of
these troublous times." This was re
ceived with shouts of laughter on the
radical side of the House.
The bill giving the negroes the right
of suffrage in the District of Columbia,
passed the Senate on the 13th by a
vote of 32 to 13. The section confer
ring suffrage is as follows :
Six. 1. That from and after the pas
sage of this act each and every male
person, excepting paupers and persons
under guardianship, of the age of twen
ty-one years and upwards, who has
not been convicted of any infamous
crime or offense, and excepting per
sons who may have voluntarily given
aid and comfort to 'the rebels in the
late rebellion, and who shall have been
born or naturalized in the United
States, and who shall have resided in
the said District for the period of ono
year, and in the ward or district in
which ho may offer to vote three
months nest preceding any election
therein, shall be entitled to the elective
franchise, and shall be deemed an elec
tor, and entitled to vote at .any elec
tion in said district without any dis
tinction on account, of color or race.
The politicians at Washington are
busy manufacturing a United States
Senator to take the place of Mr. Cow
an. Mr. Forney's chances being slim,
declines in favor of Mr. Stevens. It
will take a heavy pressure to defeat
Mr. Cameron—he's got the "ding- bats."
A long list of appointments wora
sent into the Senate on Thursday by
the President, for confirmation.-
Mr. Wilson, °flown, lias reported to
the 'louse of Representatives, from the
Committee on the Judiciary, a bill
which provides that "until the law
making power of the United States
shall have declared the several portions
of the United States heretofore repre
sented in Congress as the States of
Virginia, North Carolina, South Caro
lina, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Ar
kansas, Loosiana, and Texas are re•
stored to their political relations to the
Union they shall not be entitled to .
representation - in - the electoral college
for the choice of President and Vice
President of the United States, and
that no electoral vote shall be received
or counted from them, except as each
may hereafter be so declared restored
to its political relations to the Union
and entitled to,representation in Con
Three or four i mportan I propositions
for the reconstruction of the Southern
States are now before Congress. Mr.
Spalding proposes only to exact the
ratification of the pending Amendment
with evidence superadded that. the
forms of local Government are "not
inconsistent with the Constitution of
tho United States." The chance to ec
turn on those conditions is offered,and
the purpose of Congress in affording
it is to be declared. The inference is,
that the South may not be restored ;
the sole certainty being that it cannot
escape the jurisdiction of the Federal
Government or the obligations it im
poses, nor evade the penalties insepar
able from exclusion.
Mr. Stevens, on the contrary, asserts
that the Southern States are States no
more—that they ceased to be such, as
members of the Union, when their
citizens rebelled against Union au
thority—that they are destitulz of
properly organized Governments, and
that the United States, having subdued
the rebellion, is called upon to provide
for the organization of local civil au
The resolutions of Mr. Summer af
firm "the jurisdiction of Congress over
the whole subject." They further de.
dare the illegality of the existing
Governments in rebel States, tho ab
sence of all rights on their part to
representation in Congress or to vote
on constitutional amendments, and
"the duty of Congress to proceed with
the work of reconstruction" on a cer
tain indicated principle.
Mr. Julian has introduced a bill pro
viding for civil government for the
districts lately in revolt against the
United States. The bill provides
for temporary Territorial Govern
meats for all the late rebel States except
Tennessee ; suffrage being given to all
males without respect to color ; . and
all who have borne arms against the
United States, or held civil or military
office under the Confederacy, to be in
oligiblemithor to hold office or to vote.
The bill was referred to the Committee
.on Reconstruction..
- About thirty Senators and .Repre
sentatives met at the Capitol on
Thursday night and organized a Con
gressional prayer-meeting.
The District suffrage bill passed the
Rouse on Friday as it came froM the
Senate, by a vote of 117 to 4G. All
the Democrats and eight Republicans
voting against it. The President will
veto the bill, but it will he passed over
his head by a two third vote and be.
come a law.
The passage of the suffrage bill is al
ready beginning to !stir up a commo
tion amoung the local politicians. The
average vote for Mayor of Washington
during the war amounted to 6,000,
with an overwhelming Democrtie ma
jority. The addition of quite as many
vote:; hum the newly-enfranchised
blacks, when the bill becomes a law, all
of which it is believed will Mr some
time be cast for the Republican ticket,
gives now hope to the minority. Al:
though the next municipal election
does not occur until Juno, 1867, it is
quite likely that the canvass will be
immediately commenced.
A petition fifty-two feet long, con
taining the names of nearly all the
prominent citizens of New Mexico, has
been forwarded to Washington, pray
ing for an increase of the military
force in that Territory, as being abso
lutely necessary to protect the lives
and property of the people against the
Several Senators and members have
considered the propriety of urging in
the Joint Committee on Reconstruc
tion, the reporting ofa joint resolution
de&aring as the sense ofCongress that
the Constitutional Amendment is the
finality of the basis of restoration, and
that in the event of its ratification no
other terms will be demanded by this
Congress of the Southern Statcs. It
is urged that this be done to relieve
the doubts in the premises set, forth in
the Southern Legislatures, where the
ratification of the Amendment has
just been refused. The opposition to
this proceeding is based on thcground
that the amendment speaks for itself
as the basis of a settlement, and that
the faith of Congress is pledged to
stand by it. A declaratory resolution
of the the character referred to, is al
ready belbre the House part of the Re
construction Committee.
[From the Chicago Republican, Dec. 4.1
John 11, Surratt.
The cable dispel eh from ik tr. Hale,
the U. S. consul at Alexandria, Egypt,
to the State Department at Washing
ton, announcing the arrest of John 11.
Surratt,one of the assassins of P residen t
Lincoln, recalls with painful vividness
the crime in which he was a principal
actor, and adds a new instance to the
many which the history of crime furn
ished of the almost unerring certainty
with which justice seeks out the crim
Young Surratt is the son of Mrs.
Mary E. Surratt, who was found guil
ty by a military commission o,f having
been engaged in the conspiracy that
resulted in the murder of President
Lincoln, for which she was hung at
Washington on the 7th of July, 1865,
at the same time with the conspirators
Payne, Atzeroth and Harold. it was
at the house of the woman, as shown
by the testimony before thecommission,
and the confession of Atzeroth, that
the most of the details of the assassin
ation were arranged, and next to J.
Wilkes Booth, the principal assassin,
Surratt appears to have been the most
active spirit engaged in the conspiracy.
Ho was the familiar friend and com
panion of Booth for weeks before the
assassination, meeting him frequently
at the house of Mrs. Surratt, and hold
ing protracted secret interviews with
him in his own room.
Ono of the plans of the assassins was
to abduct. President Lincoln while
riding out, but this failing, Surratt
made a sudden visit to Montreal, It
was also in evidence before the . cont.
mission which tried the conspirators,
that, within, a few weeks previous to
the assassination, he had made a trip
to Richmond. While there. lie claim
ed to•have Mut Interviews FrithDavis
and Benjamin, and on his return was
confident in his declaration that the
rebel capital would not be evacuated.
The fact of his visit to Richmond
was one of the circumstances which
went to connect Davis and other rebel
leaders with the assassination conspi•
racy. He was present in Washington
the day before the murder of the Presi
dent, and is believed to have borne an
important part of the atrocious affair,
but was never seen in the city again.
Conscious of his guilt, lie fled from the
scene of his crime, as is believed leav
ing - Washington early on the morning
of the 15th of April, going by way of
Phila. and Now - York to Springfield,
Massachusetts, where he was delayed
a day in consequence of the failare
the train to connect
From Springfield he went by rail to
Burlington, Vt., where takiwg his sap
per, ho dropped his handkerchief with
his name marked upon it, but the fact
was known too late to effect his arrest.
Arriving at St. Albans, he is reported
to have left the train, proceeding on
foot to Canada, making his way, finally,
partly on foot and partly by rail to
Montreal. Here ho was secreted for
some time by rebel sympathizers, but
was reported at the time to have been
seen near a monastery, where be dis
Since that time nothing has been
known of his whereabouts until a few
days ago a European dispatch announ
ced that he had boon discovered ser
ving as a private soldier in the Papal
army. He was arrested, but, succeed
ing in making his escape, ha next ap
pears upon the scone in Egypt. The
filet that an order had been soot to
have him conveyed to the United
States by ono of our war vessels now
in European waters, indicates that ho
is safe in the hands of United States
officers. It is not improbable that his
capture and trial may lead to new and
startling developments of facts connec
ted with the assassination conspiracy.
Inauguration of Gen. Geary.
A committee of the boys in blue of
Harrisburg have issued an eloquent
address to the boys in blue of Pennsyl
vania, inviting them to be present at
the Inauguration of the Governor
elect of Pennsylvania, Maj. Gen. John
W. Geary. After reciting the victories
won in the field, the address concludes
as follows :
"It is therefore fitting that we as
semble ourselves together at the State
Capital . at the time above specified,and
ratify by our presence the political
victory we have lately won, and make
stronger and brighter those links
which bind us together in the circle of
a sacred companionship.
"All those organizations or associ
ations which may see fit and proper
to attend on the occasion specified will
please correspond with the committee
at as early a date as convenient.

The Young Men's Christian Association,
of Brooklyn, has 3,000 members, a library
and rending room, and gives a course of lec

does much of their neglected work. We
would like to see such an association here.
A good story is told of a clergyman not for

There are in the United States 30,000 miles
of railway, which cost ti 1,380,000,000. In
Europe there are 30,000 miles, which cost

births and 221 deaths.
The Detroit Advertiser states that quite a
large number of the fashionable ladies of that
city "make their own shoes," but the editor
laments that this is done because it is fash

the best road for fashiongo take to make it
self commendable, and'we hope it success.

The Methodist centenary contributions
continue to flow into the treasury in liberal
volume. Last week, according to the Metho

in Columbus, Ohio, one church, $17,550.
A merchant of Philadelphia, who dined
for many years on a herring and a cracker,

The colored "citizens" of Indiana hare re
solved "that we demand that all words and
clauses which mark distinction between men,
on account of color, lie stricken out of statute
books.'' If they had sent their demazela to

, told them there was no necessity for being so
importunate, as all that is being attended to.
The. Tennessee House of Representatives
have voted against a bill, 33 against 26, pro
viding fur the organization and maintenance
of free common schools in the State. There
are 7:3,000 adult whites in Tennessee who
cannot read or write. We think a knowledge
of the latter fact, of itself, should have con
vinced the fogicst of the, legislators to vote
for the measure.
No less than two thousand men are dig

"Never be critical upon the ladies," was
the maxim of an old Irish peer•, remarkable
for his homage to the sex ; "the only way in
the world that a true gentleman ever will at
tempt to look at the faults,of a pretty woman
is to shut his eyes." This may be true ; but
how is a poor fellow going to "go it blind"
when he embraces some fair lady form?
A young and pretty lady traveling from
Louisville to Nashville the other day, was ob
served to have a piece of court plaster on her
lip. When the cars emerged from one of the
tunnels into the light it was discovered cling

the seat with her. They both looked as in

Persons desiring an audience are invited to
buy a ticket of admission at the door of the
waiting room—one hour costing ten shillings;
half an hour, six shillings ; fifteen minutes,
three shillings. This would be considered
pomposity or tyranny if adopted in America.
The correspondent of the New York Trib
une says: "Schenck's bill, to repeal the bill
of the last session of Congress increasing the
pay of members, was referred. An amend
ment to make members refund all the in
creased compensation already received crea
ted loud laughter." Such a proposition was
an extremely good joke',. but the members

There is n frightful mystery and rapidity
about the hog-killing process in Chicago.—
The animal is introduced from the top of the

It is estimated there are at present about
1,250,000 Free and Accepted Masons scatter
ed upon the face of the globe. Of this num

Scotland, and 50,000 are in Ireland. There
are about 500,000 on,the continent of Europe,
400,000 in the United States, and 50,000 in
other ports of the world. In England there
are two or three thousand persons initiated

The Parisian hair dressers recently held
their annual ball and laid down the future?
fashion as to the hair. The rage for false
hair shows no abatement, and ladies' heads
are still to ho loaded down with some one

and lifted up from the forehead in puff: a nd
rolls, the beck hair spread out into an enor

There has been formed in Paris a much
needed Humane Society for the protection of
infants. It is calculated that 15,000 chil
dren die every year in the neighborhood of
Paris for want of proper care, and 100,000 in
the whole of Prance. This is in a great part
due to the habit of putting children out to
nurse where they are neglected or al,used.—
