The RuntirAgdon Journal.
4. VL DURBORPAW,
Wednesday Morning, April 12, 1871.
HAVE YOU PAID FOR THE JOURNAL
This is the all important question with
Its. We believe every subscriber, for his
local paper, ought to pay in advance. City
papers require this in all instances, and if
it is absolutely necessary in the case of
city papers, that in all probability have ten
subscribers to our one, how much more
necessary should it be with us? We have
to pay cash for everything we get,
for types, presses, paper, ink, labor, and
these amount, in the aggregate, to thou
sands of dollars in a single year, while you
are only asked to pay the small snm, a
mere trifle in comparison with our large
sums, of Two DOLLARS. This being the
case we do hope you will, without excep
tion, pay the new firm of J. R. Durborrow
& Co., one year in advance. The Monitor
man claims that the Democrats of Hun
tingdon county pay better than the Repub
cans, but he can't make us believe any such
stuff, at least until after the 19th inst.,-and
we shall not believe it then unless flirded
to do so. You have two weeks of Court,
when„ if yon do not come in yourself, you
(zan send it in with your neighbors. We
will be compelled to establish the cash rule
to all parties who take the JOURNAL out
side of the State limits. We have received
a large number of subscriptions during the
last week or two, but we are far from being
910 of the woods. The Monitor shan't
have the joke on us. Ah, Cornman, that
little list in last week's Monitor won't' do !
THE COAL TROUBLES-
The New York Herald, commenting on
the action of the Senate committee, and
the probable failure of the Legislature,
Which is controlled by the Democrats, to
grant asy relief to the miners, says:
"But Governor Geary has determined to
offset all such infamous legislation by the
issue of a writ of quo warranto compelling
the Reading, Lehigh Valley, and other rail
ways implicated in the conspiracy to lower
their tolls to the rates prescribed by their
charters. If they refuse to do so he is
prepared to seize them and run them by
State authority. Here is a proper and
prompt solution of the coal difficulty, and
we hope the Governor will have calm nerve,
clear head, and clear grit enough to do it.
If the charters of the roads have been vio
lated by the conspirators, they should have
been brought to terms by the strong hand
of the law ere this, and they would have
been, in any community where the honest
welfare of the public was a more powerful
incentive to legislation than the moneybags
or political trickery of railroad lobbymen.
As it is, Governor Geary proposes to stand,
like a rock, between the gr3wing power of
these giant corporations and the will and
wishes of the masses of the people. On
that platform he has a bright chance ahead
in the great battle of 1871.
sig.,The Johnstown Tribune shows a
spirit of vindictiveness against Judge Tay
lor that indicates a deeper rooted opposi
tion than that which generally manifests
itself from mere preference for somebody
else. Whether Judge Taylor is right or
wrong in believing that the judicial ermine
should not be dragged into politics, we will
leave the people to determine, but this we
we will say, that Judge Taylor maintains
too high a character as a Judge and a gen
tleman to be injured by any such injudi
cious spleen as the Tribune has been throw
ing at him for months by the bucket full.
It must be secretly very anxious for his
re-re-election. Its course will be sure to
bring out the Judge's friends strong, and
their name is legion, and in such an event
Judge Taylor will continue to fill the bench,
which he has filled so well for many years,
for the next judicial term.
THE LAST CHANCE !
I hereby give notice to all persons in
debted to me for subscription, advertising
or job work, that all unsettled accounts
will be placed in the hands of an officer for
collection immediately after the April
Court. Those who settle their accounts
by that time will be charged only two dol
lars per annum ; after that date three dol
lars will be charged. Those who desire to
save something will avail themselves of this
offer: My books MUST be settled.
J. A. NASH,
March 7, 1871.—tf.
maLThe election in Connecticut, on last
Tuesday, contrary to all expectations, went
generally Republican. The election for
Governor goes to the Legislature which is
strongly Republican, so that the Republi
can candidate, Mr. Jewell, will be elected.
The Democrats were too confident, and
failed to send the usual number of re
peaters down from New York, and hence
the Republican triumph. They thought
that New Hampshire and Sumner would
make it all 0. K., bat they reckoned with
out their host. "Pity the sorrows of a
poor old man."
..Hon. John Scott paid his family a
flying visit last Saturday a week. He is
evidently being severely worked. We
hope that during the recess he will leave
his colleagues to attend to the Ku Klux
and take a trip across the continent. Mr.
Scott has spent but a short time in the
United States Senate, and yet, few, if any,
have rendered the Republican party so
much service in the same length of time.
We hope that his life may long be pre
served to enable him to see and enjoy the
fruits of his labors.
.The Hollidaysburg Regisicr ex
claims, (of course in the deepest agony of
its soul), "Judge Taylor is gone !" Not
that the good Judge is dead, oh, no; but
he has said that he desires to be elected
Judge of this judicial district without a
party nomination, and consequently it is
all Over with him. The Judge ought to
be ashamed to have gone and done it in
this way. No doubt the Register thinks
it would be well to have a DEAN to officiate
a little at the old fellow's going out.
Sir 'The Red Republicans of France
have been badly whipped by the gov
ernment, and the probabilities are, after a
few more blows of the same character,
things will quiet down. There are a few
Frenchmen who.want to be killed, and we
hope, that if they will not restore order
and quiet, they may be gratified: 'lt
will cost less to bury them than to support
them living, besides getting rid oftheir an
noyance will be something.

it is read. Further action in regard to the

A riot occurred at Scranton on

to go to work, and those who are deter

vote. Temperance nice, the Democratic

GENTLEMEN.-Your kind letter of the 3d
inst., was duly received here through the mail,
and I avail myself of the earliest leisure to re
ply to it.
You say to me, gentleman, that the ques
tion having been agitated and discussed,
"Who shall be our next President Judge?" in
your judgment "the sentiment of our (your)
vicinity is that the people have full faith and
confidence in the court as it now stands, and
that no change is required ;" and you express
to me your desire that I will permit my "name
to be used by the people as as a candidate for
that honorable position." You are pleased to
add the expression of your "most earnest de
sire that political elements will not be brought
into question in the selection of a candidate."
I say to you frankly, gentlemen, in reply,
that after much thought and deliberation on
the subject, it is my purpose, if my life be
spared till the next general election, to be a
candidate. I will be excused, I know, for ad
ding a few words explantory of the reasons
which have brought me to this conclusion.
Neither my age nor my circumstances allow
me to think of retiring from the duties of active
life; and, while I feel a strong aversion to go
ing back to the bar and engaging again in the
practice of the law, there are many reasons
which attach me warmly to my present field
of labor. When the XXlN'th Judicial District
was formed, nearly a quarter of a century ago,
then very young in the profession, without
the advantages of a liberal education, and with
only such poor acquirements as my unaided
efforts in the struggle upward from obscure
life bad secured, I was called to be its FIRST
PRESIDENT J•JDGE ; and have since, through
the kind and indulgent confidence of the peo
ple, been retained iu that hieh and responsi
ble position. Those who were then the old.
members of the bar, have nearly all retired, or
'sunk into the grave. With a few of my cotem
poraries in age around me, the bar of this day is
composed of younger gentlemen, who have
been admitted to practice, and many of whom,
as I have watched with almost parental
pride, have arisen to distinction, since I
have been on the bench. And even among
them, I have sorrowed to see death do his re
morseless work. One, in this county, the
moat brilliant star in the galaxy, before he
had reached his meridian, I was grieved to see
set in a mist of tears; and another—one of
my most devoted personal friends—went down
in the shock of battle in defence of our glo
rious Union;—and they both sleep side by'
side, almost in view of where I write. The
great mass of those whom I now see attend
ing the courts, as jurors, and witnesses, and
suitors, first commenced their attendance
Within the same period, and first saw me there
as the Judge, and I them as attendants upon
my courts. Daring this whole time, also, not
withstanding the very large amount of bust
ness done in this important district, and the
varied character of it—often growing out of or
involving partisan or sectional excitement—l
have always and uniformly, without any inter
ruption, received and appreciated the gener
ous courtesy and kindness or the bar, and the
most unmistakable evidence of the confidence
of the people. Whatever have been my er
rors, they have been indulgently ascribed, by
bar and people, to the head rather than to the
heart ; and there has been, as you all know,
and as I am proud to claim, and most grate
fully acknowledge, universally accorded to me
the strictest INTEGRITY and ruasartsaarvin the
discharge of all my onerous and responsible
judicial duties. I have discharged the moat
solemn and painful duty a Judge could be
called upon to perform with less emotion than
I hay•• been able to pen this brief retrospect.
Thus identified with the District, it will not,
I am sure, be thought strange that I am warm
ly attached to it, and prefer the duties of my
psesent office to any other departrient of labor
while I feel the obligation resting upon me to
labor at something. I would prefer it to any
Pommel. office that could be offered me or
named. I would rather be the President
Judge of the XXIVth Judicial District. I do
not hesitate to say, that the Governor of the
There are considerations, on the other band,
which greatly moderate my anxiety on the
subject. While I have been upon the bench, I
have performed the labor and felt the respon
sibility-, very often involving sleepless nights,
of trying a very large number of civil causes,
many of them of great importance, and have,
in addition to the perplexing miscellaneous
business of four quarterly courts, in each coun
ty, and the necessary adjourned courts, occupy
ing nearly all my time, tried an immense number
of criminal issues, with everything perplexing
and unpleasant involved in them. Besides
indictments for other felonies, more or less
grave in their character, and almost countless
misdemeanors, I have tried over FIFTY persons
indicted for HOMICIDE-more,perhaps,than any
other Judge in the State, out of the principal
cities; and have pronounced upon no less
than EIGHT, the extreme penalty of the law. I
know, therefore, gentlemen, what they only
can know and can appreciate who have learn
ed it in the same way, the heavy weight of
labor and responsibility involved in the dis
charge of all the judicial duties in a heavy dis
trict like this; and I know, of course, and
feel, that if God should spare my life till the
allotted limit o a f “three score and ten" years,
a new commission a year hence, would be a
commission to toil on until my lifework
would be nearly done.
In consenting, therefore, to be A CANDIDATE,
I feel no anxiety for success which would in
duce me to make any special effort to influ
ence the calm and unbiased judgment of the
voters of the district; or, particularly, to se
cure a partisan nomination, for a high judicial
office, at the hands of any political party. If
the people should think it best for them, and
for the interests of the public at large, to pre
fer or select any other, for political or any
I shall try to think it best for
me; and shall bow with entire resignation to

THE NEW YORK TRIBUNE FOR
Through struggle and suffering, at the cost
of multiform agonies, bereavements, devastations, the
American Idea embodied in the preamble to our fathers'
Declaration of Independence approaches its complete re
alatlon. The noble, Inspiring assertion that "all men are
created equal," and endowed by their nreator with inanen
able rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,fs
no longer a glittering generality, a poet's fancy, a philos
opher's speculation, but the recognized base of our polltl•
cal fabric. The benign Revolution, which dates front the
Roston Massacre of 1770, finds its logical completion, just
one century later, in the XVth Amendment, which gives
to the equal political and civil rights of every ruan born or
naturalized in onr Republic the shield and defense of the
Fctieral Constitution. The billows of Caste and Privilege
may roar and rage around that rock, and may transiently
seem on the poin - of washing it away; but its foundations
are deep laid and steadfast, and the breakers of Reaction
and Slavery aro hurled against and dash their spray over
it in vain.
. We do net underrate the toreador Prejudice and Aristoc
racy. We do not for iet that a very large minoriy of the
American People still hold in their inmost hearts that
Blacks have no rights which Whites are boned to respect.
We fully appreciate the desperation wherewith all the war
ring elements of hatred to Republican achievement will be
combined and hurled against, the battlements of Republi
can ascendency of 1072. We do not doubt that local sue
cessea, facilitated by Republican feuds and dissensions, will
inspire the charging host with a sanguine hope of victory,
such as nerved it to put forth its utmost strength in the
earlier stages of the constests of 1864 and 1068. Yet our
faith is clear and strong that the American People still
bless God that, on the red battle-fields of our late Civil
War, the Union was upheld and Slavery destroyed, and
will never consciously decide that the precious blond there
on poured out was lavished in vain.
TIE TRIBUNE believes in tho prosecution of the great
struggle by legitimate means to beneficent ends. To State
Sovereignty, it opposes indissoluble National Integrity; to
Slavery for Blacks, Liberty for All; to Proscription, En
franchisement; to Popular Ignorance, Universal Ednc.
Lion ; to intensity and eternity of Wrathful Rate, universal
and invincible Good Will. It would fain do it utmost to
hasten the glad day when the South shall vie with the
North in exultation and gratitude over the disappearance
of tho last trace or taint of that spirit which impelled Man
to exult in the ownership and chat.lhood of his fellow Man.
Profoundly do we realized that the contest is not yet
ended—that Millions mourn, more or less publicly, the
downfall of the SlaveholdiTs' Confederacy, and rear their
children to hate those by whose valor and constancy its
overthrow was achieved. If we over seem to differ email-
Bally from other Republicans, our conviction that magn.
nimity is never weakness, that vengeance is never politic,
and that devils are not cast out by Beelzebub, must serve
to explain alleged eccentricities whose perfect vindication
WC leave to Time and Reflection.
Tim TRIIIVNE.haII been, is, and must be, a zealous advo
cate of Protection to Home Industry. Regarding habitual
idleness as the greatest foe to human prozress, the bane of
human happiness, we such to win oar countrymen in
masses from the ensnaring lures of Speculation, of Traffic,
and of always overcrowded Professions, to the tranquil
paths of Productive Industry. We would gladly deplete
our overcrowded cities, where thousands vainly jostle and
crowd in misguided quest of "Something to Du " to cover
prairies and plains with colonies absorbed in Agriculture,
Mechanics and Manufactures, and constantly projecting
into the blank, void wilderness the homes and the works
of civilised Sian. Holding the Protection of Home Indus
try by discriminating duties on Imported Wares and Fair
rice essential to the rapid, beneficient diffusion of Produc
tion in all its phases and departments, and so to the in
struction of our people in all the gainful arts of Peace, we
urge our countrymen to adhere to and uphold that policy
in undoubting faith that the true interest, not of a class or
a section, but of each section and every useful class, is
thereby snliserved and promoted.
Tun TRIBUNE aims to be preeminently a sVetospaper. Its
correspondents traverse every State, are present on every
important battle-field, are early advised of every no able
Cabinet decision, observe the proceedings of Congress, of
Legislatures, and of Conventions, and report to es by tele
graph all that seems of general interest. We have paid
for one day's momentous advices from Europe by Cable
far more tnan our entire receiptss for the issue in which
those advices reached our readers. If lavish outlay, un
sleeping vigilance, and unbounded faith in the liberality
and discernment of the reading public, will enable as to
make a journal which has no superior in the accuracy,
variety, and freshness of its contents. Tim TRIBUNE shall
be such a journal.
. . .
Agriculture and the subservient arts, we have de
voted, and shall persistently devote, more means and
apace than any of our rivals. We aim to make THE
WEEKLY MMnn each a paper that no farmer can afford
to do without, however widely his politics may differ from
ours. Our reports of the Cattle, Horse, Produee and Gen
eral Markets, are so fall and accurate, our essays in elucid
ation of the farmer's calling, and oar regular reports of
the Farmers' Club end kindred gatherings, are so inter
esting, that the poorest farmer will find therein a mine of
suggestion and counsel, of which he cannot remain igno
rant with positive and serious loss. We sell Tim Wzmu.l
to Clubs for less than its value in dwellings for wastepa
per, and, though its subscription isalready very large, we
believe that a Ball Million more farmers will take It when
ever it shall be commended to their attention. We ask
our friends everywhere to oid an in so commending it.
