We have determined not to insist upon
the strict letter of our terms until after
the August Court, and therefore give those
who are still in arrears to us for subscrip
tion, until that time to pay up at the rate
of $2.00 per year. We want
to have the JOURNAL at $2.00, so avail
yourselves of Court to bring in or send in
your cash. Send along your money, or
you must pay $2.50, and at the end of the
year $3.00. It is only $2.00, and anybody
who takes oar paper can raise that much
money. Don't wait until you are two or
three years in arrears and then get out of
humor because your bill is so large. Pay
up ! Pay up !
The Republican County Convention, as
will be seen by the proceedings in another
column, assembled in the Court House, in
this place, on last Tuesday afternoon, and
organized, with some little difficulty, owing
to the immense crowd which thrust itself
upon it and the intensity of the heat, and
proceeded to nominate tke following ez
cellent ticket, viz:
For Assembly, Geo. FRANKLLN H.
LANE, of Shirleyaburg, who is one of the
most sober, honest and upright christian
men in the county, and whose vast experi
ence, great ability, gentlemanly qualities,
and untarnished name present him to the
Republican voters as in every way worthy
of their earnest and united support, and,
if we do not mistake the signs of the times,
he will be elected by a larger majority than
any man who has run on the Republican
county ticket for yearn .
Hon. 'DAVID CLARKSON, of Cass-
Wag re-nominated for Associate Judge•
Judge Clarkson is one of those honest and
upright men that Republicans love to hon
or. He has occupied a position on the
bench for the last five years, and in all
that time he has been equal to every em
ergency and given universal satisfixtion.—
He is a leading member of the Methodist
Episcopal Church, and never fails to make
his walks accord with his professions. He
will be re-elected by a handsome majority.
AMON HOUCK, of Broad Top City,
a one-armed soldier, was nominated for
Sheriff. Mr. Houck is the present post
master at that place, and bears an unblem
ished character, both as a man and a sol
dier. He is a thorough Republican, and
will make an able and efficient officer. He
will be elected by a 1. • .;e majority.
ALFRED W. KEN YON, of Barree,
was nominated for Treennwer. -Mr. Ken
yon, we learn, is a wounded soldier, and
he is said to be fully qualified to make a
good accounting officer. We have never
had the pleasure of meeting him. We feel
sanguine that he will be triumphantly
elected by a large majority.
ship, was nominated for Commissioner.—
Mr. Evans belongs to one of the best fam
ilies in Bedford county. He will make a
faithful and judicious officer.
township, was nominated for Director of
the Poor. He is a good, honest farmer,
and when elected will see that the Poor
House is conducted in the most economical
and business-like manner.
HENRY WILSON, of Oneida town
ship, was nominated for County Surveyor .
He is the present incumbent, and has fill
ed the position for several terms. This is
the best recommendation which can be
given him.
SAMUEL P. SMITH, of Union, was no
minated for County Auditor. He is a good
accour .t and will see that the county
accounts are properly examined and au
JAMES BRICKER, of Huntingdon,
was nominated for Coroner. Mr. Bricker
is well known to the great mass of our
readers, and we therefore hand him over
to them, remarking that in case of the
death of the Sheriff he would be the right
man in the right place.
The Convention was harmonious through
out, and the nominations have given gen
eral satisfaction, and they will be supported
earnestly in every quarter. There is a
unanimity of sentiment upon the ticket
which was hardly to be expected, but which
warrants us in saying that Huntingdon
county will be on her feet on the second
Tuesday of October next and Democracy
will be begging for an existence.
an_ In accordance with a resolution
passed by the State Central Committee, at
its last meeting at Altoona, Hon. Russell
Errett has appointed Hon. William Elliott,
of Philadelphia, one of the Secretaries of
the Committee. Rooms Nos. 13 and 9 have
been opened in the La Pierre House, Broad
street, below Chestnut, where all are cor
dially invited to cal
The Democracy of Huntingdon county,
after great consideration and distress, as
sembled in County Convention, in this
place, on last Wednesday, at 1 o'clock, r.
Mt., and proceeded to nominate a full tick
et, as follows, viz : Assembly, J. Simpson
Africa, Esq., of Huntingdon ; Associate
Judge, John Myerly, of Union township;
Treasurer, G. Ashman Miller, of Hunting
don ; Sheriff, Thomas Henderson, of War
riorsmark; Commissioner, Solomon Chil
cote, 'of Broad Top City; Director of
the Poor, Robert Johnston, of West;
Auditor, Charles C. Ash, of Barree ; Cor
oner, Dr. D. P. Miller, of Huntingdon.—
This is pronounced, by those who know, to
be an excellent ticket, and we believe it to
be such, but it is Democratic, and, there
fore, it can expect nothing from Republi
cans. Mr. Africa, the nominee for Assem
bly, was nominated with a special refer
ence to his popularity. He is unquestion
ably a very excellent gentleman, a good
citizen, and in every sense an honorable
and upright man in his social relations,
but the same is said of Gen. Lane, the Re
publican nominee, and it is not a question
whether Mr. Africa, as a citizen and as a
gentleman, is to represent us in the next
Legislature, but whether we shall be re
presented by a Republican or a Democrat.
Timis is the all important questionf4Wheth-
er we shall elect a Democrat, who will fa
vor the election of a Democratic United
States Senator for the next six years and
the passage of a Congressional Apportion
ment Bill which will make this district
Democratic for the next ten years, or
whether we shall elect a Republican, who
will vote for a Replblican United States
Senator and a Republican Apportionment
Bill ? And Republicans will settle this
question by rolling up a majority for Gen.
Lane unequalled in the history of the
county, but our friends must go to work,
and work unceasingly until the polls are
closed on the night of the second Tuesday
of October.
The Convention declared in favor of
Thad. Banks, Esq., of Blair county, for
President Judge, and for Gen. Hancock,
for President, in 1872. It was evident
that there were none ,of Mrs. Surratt's
friends on hand. It was amusing to see
the gravity which pervaded the delegates
to this Convention They looked as if
they were whipped 1000, and they will be.
We have been favored with a private
lithographed letter, says the Harrisburg
Telegraph, circulated by the Democratic
State Central Committee, and invite the
careful attention of our readers to its con
tents. Mr. Wallace is no doubt very ac
tively engaged in its circulation, and we
therefore extend to him the use of our
columns, and publish the same verbatim.
Mr. Wallace represents the contest this
fall as of great importance, and we hope
our Republican friends will make a note
of that part.
He next speaks of the tide being "in
our favor, and the extravagance, misrule
and negroism of the enemy are silently,
but surely destroying them."
This is exeoedingly . unkind, Mr. W,
when it has been proven that the session
of one Democratic Senate has almost dou
bled the expenses of that body. His party
everywhere—when in power—has cost the
taxpayers millions more than under Re
publican ascendancy ; and now having just'
adopted the "new departure," it is really
too bad to speak so unkindly of aegroism.
The circular betrays on its face the weak
ness of the cause in which the party is
engaged, and we hope that every Republi
can will study its contents carefully, and
see that every Republican voter is duly
enrolled on the registry list and his vote
deposited in the ballot-box. Hera is the
document :
FIELD, PA., July 17th, 1871.—Dear Sir: I ad
dress you as an earnest and active Democrat. The
present contest is one of great importance, and its
result will be potential upon the Presidential elec
tion of next year. The tide is in our favor, and
the erxtravagauce, misrule and negroism of the
enemy are silently but surely destroying them.
Notwithstanding this- they possess the spoils and
offices, and will make a desperate struggle to hold
We ean and will beat them, if our efforts are
seconded everywhere by men like yourself. Vic
tory must be won by work, We will do our utmost,
but we cannot win uniess our efforts are supported,
;;;:i ;I;e ' work perfected in every locality. 'There-
eponsibility in reality is upon the earnest men of
the people, and to them will belong the honors of
the triumph.
The secret of success is attention to details. It is
for you and those you call around you to work out
these details in your locality.
Get ready to poll every Democratic vote. If this
be done, our majority will be very large. Now is
the time to begin the work, Do not wait for your
associates. Go at it yourself, and they will follow.
See that every Democrat is registered. See that
nc fraudulent names are put on the lists. Mark
down suspected names, and trace out the fraud.
They will commit any fraud that will get them a
vote, and then plate about honesty. Make out
your lists of reliable democrats, hopeless Radicals,-
and doubtful men. Go over these lists and com—
pare them with the registry, and verify and cor
rect them. One will be a check upon the other.
Bring influences to bear upon the doubtful men;
use every fair argument to convert them. Set be
fore them the characters and records of our candi
dates. Both are spotless and above attack. Give
ate the names of d4,,ubtfitl men in your district, t.s
for as you can, but do not neglect Democrats in
order to attend to this. Let your great olikpt be to
poll creep Democratic cote—make • this the great
end of all that you do.
Ascertain et once who need to be naturalised,
and give it attention now. Do pot wait until
September. The prudent map acts pretpptly if he
wishes to attain his object. Tbia work inn be
done now quietly and effectively, and everything
on our side made to move without jar or contest.
Do this first, and then devote yourselves to fight
ing your antagonists. Call to your aid the young
men of the party. They are the best arm with
which to strike. They will work with energy, and
ill be encoornged by your confidence. -
Harmonize diarautipm, if any exist. Concen-
trate our people upon the ritpt iftemojeucce.—for
in its wake will come power. good' governmeut,
and the just rights of the people and of the States,
Very respectfully yours,
sel, We are under the impression that
several parties, who were nominated for
important offices on last Tuesday, do not
take the JouttNAL. Come, gentlemen, we
support you and you in return must sup
port us. One good turn deserves another,
yon know. The man who wants to be a
politician and to be elevated to offices of
profit, who does not take his county paper,
ought to know that no man can be elected
to office without newspaper support. We
give it cheerfully, but we want reciproca
tion. -
illEtt. in 1861 the Democrats insisted that
there was no power in the General Govern,
ment to coerce a State, and that it could
only punish individual citizens thereof; it+

Our Democratic friends have a record,
on the adoption of the fourteenth and fif
teenth amendments, that is so new that it
is very surprising that they have forgotten
it. We desire, briefly, to direct their at
tention to it.
On the 11th of July, 1870, in the House
of Representatives, Mr. Ferris, of New
York, offered the following resolution :
Retrolege, That the fourteenth and fifteenth arti
cles of amendment to the Constitution of the Uni
ted States, having been duly ratified by the Legis
latures of three-fourths of the several States, are
valid to all intents and purposes as part of the
Constitution of the United States, and as such
binding and obligatory upon the Executive, the
Congress, the Judiciary, the several States and
Territories, and all citizens of the United States.
The yeas and nays were ordered and the
resolution was adopted by a vote of 138
yeas to 32 nays, and 60 not voting. See
CengressiOnal Globe, page 5,441, part 6,
of 42d Congress, second session. Every
Democrat voting voted against the adoption
of the resolution.
Again, on the 14th of March, 1871, Mr.
Wilson, of Indiana, introduced in the
House a series of resolutions withdrawing
the assent of the Senate of the State Of
Indiana to the ratification of the fifteenth
amendment to the Constitution, followed
by two resolutions, the last of which read
thus, viz :
And be it further resolved, That the thirteenth,
fourteenth, and fifteenth articles of amendment to
the Constitution of 'the United States have been
duly ratified by the Legislatures-of three-fourths
of the several States. and that said amendments
are valid to all intents and purposes as a part of
the Constitution of the United States, and as such
binding and obligatory upon the Executive, the
Congress, the several States and Territories, and
all the citizens of the Culled States.
On the motion to suspend the rules to
permit the passage of this resolution the
yeas and nays were demanded, and 110
voted yea, 75 nay, and 38 not voting.—
Twc-thirds not voting in the affirmative
the resolution was lost. See Daily Con
gressional Globe of 14th March, 1871. Of
the 110 who voted for the suspension of
the rules we do not recognize a single
Democrat, hnt on the other hand every
vote against the suspension was voted by a
Democrat, and prominent among those
from Pennsylvania is the name of Hon. R.
rtHLTON.SPEER. This was on the 14th
of March last, mark you. Now, then, turn
your eye upon the following resolution,
adopted by the Democratic State Conven.
tion on the 24th of June at Harrisburg:
9th. That we recognize the BINDING OBLIGATION
the United States AS THEY NOW EXIST, and we
deprecate the discussion of issues which have been
settled in the manner and by the authority consti
tutionally appointed.
Here is consistency fur you. On the
14th of March, 1871, Speer believed the
fourteenth and fifteenth amendments to be
null and void, and on the 24th of June
following hp recognized them as binding.
What a wonderful transformation ! How
is this to be accounted for ? Mr. Speer
acounts for it, we understand, that they
want to get into office, and when they do,
they will not be so likely to see the "BIND
mere trick to catch votes, and happily it
is so understood.
Senator Scott's Speech on the Ku-Klux
The Mass Meeting,
_called for Tuesday:
evening of last week, in the court nous%
was the occasion of the assembling of a
great crowd of persons who remained until
the close, at a late hour.
The meeting was called to order by S.
T. Brown, F,'sq., who named PERI.Y
MOORE, of Morris township, for Presi
dent; SA3IIJEL MCVITTY, of Clay, T. E.
of Jackson, Dr. J. H. WINTRODE, of
Penn and lENRY coxpßoßsT, of Barree,
for Vice Presidents; and Capt, J. C. HAM;
MON, of Petersburg, and G. B. ARMI
TAGE, of Huntingdon, for Secretaries.
Mr. Scott was loudly called for and came
forward and addressed his neighbors and
fellow-citizens it, a speech covering two
hours and a half, which was listened to,
with profound attention, until its close.—
It is not our purpose to give even the
briefest outline of his remarks, as he in
tends to submit them to the public, at an
early day, in a clear and concise form, and
so well fortified by unimpeachable testimo
ny that they must carry conviction to the
heart of the most obtuse and reluctant
Democrat. The wrongs and'horrors which
have been perpetrated upon the defence
less people of the States of. North Carolina,
South Carolina, and part of Georgia, as
portrayed by him, were never equalled in
the history of civilization. Much has been
published, but when Mr. Scott's facts
come to light, as they will in a short time,
the country will be appalled, and the brave
and patriotic everywhere will rise up and
cry for the suppression of the monsters who
now go unharmed and who wreak their
barbarity and vengeance upon a poor de
fenceless people, tbr no other reason than
that they bless the hand that made them
Mr. Lysinger, the Democratic nominee for Dis
trict Attorney, lost his arm by an accident while
working at a threshing machine, before the war.—
We refer to the matter loarcly to assure our Peace
Democraric friends that he was not in the army,
The above item appeared in the Blair
Coun y .11a4ical some weeks ago, and we
cut it out at the time with the intention of
correcting our friend King. Our recol
lection was that Mr. Lysinger lost his arm
at Martinsburg, on the 4th of July, 1858,
by the premature discharge of a cannon
while firing a salute in commemoration of
our National Independence, But we were
no longer certain. Our recollection was
that we were present d' ring the day. We
submitted the matter to our better half and
she confirmed our recollection by relating
the same facts. We correct the above in
justice to Mr. Lysinger, who is an excel
lent conservative gentlemami and the only
fault that we find with him is, that he has
allowed himself to he connected with a
party that both his heart pod conscience
tell him is wrong.
sm. Justice John Dl. Reed, of the Su
preme Court of Pennsylvania, authorizes
the PittoburF, Legal Journal to say that
-'he is not about to resign his seat" on the
bench of that Court. We are very sorry
to hear it. Justice Reed has been unable
to fully discharge the heavy duties devol
ving npop u member of that Court for
some time, and we think if; an imposition
for him to "stick" to a position which bur
dens his brothers.
CZ"' The last Bedford Gazelle, edited
by Hon. B. F. Myers, contains a column
article, entitled "No Half Way Work,"
that is intended to whip in all the grum
blers at the "new departure," and is the
usual lash applied by Mr. Myers on such
occasions. He says :
" There he some well-meaning men who because
they cannot. get a platlbon to suit them in every
respect, seem willing to sacrifice all they have con
tended fur during their whole lives. Our friends
who are thus disposed, net on the principle that if
the fire has destroyed the roof of the house, it is
not worth while to attempt to extinguish the
flames in order to save the remainder of the struc
ture. They also seem to forget that when the fiery
demon is driven out, the carpenter may re-enter
the building. new-roof it and make the fabric
stronger and more durable than before."
This is' a covert confession that the
"departure" is only a dodge to catch votes,
and as soon as they have succeeded in their
design they. can "throw it to the dogs."—
We can assure him the game won't work
They won't catch votes, and beyond this
honest Democrats won't stand it.

D. W. Itadebaugh. He left us and loca

the Pittsburgh. Gazette of the 11th inst.,
says he went and did :
"A large and fashionable audience assembled at
the Sixth Avenue Cumberland Presbyterian Church,
last night, on the occasion of the marriage of Mr.
Dan W. Radebaugh to one of the most accomplish
ed daughters of the Second ward of our city. Set-.

as he is zealous and eloquent, after a very appro

their present and future welfare. God bless them."
Yes, so say we; "GOD BLESS THEM !"
Se" The Democratic Judicial Confer
ence of the counties composing the XVlth
Judicial District net at Bedford, on the
11th inst., and after repeated adjournments
on Monday following nominated Wm. J.
Baer, Esq., of Somerset county, for Presi
dent Judge. The contest was between the
latter and Hon. J. McDowell Sharpe, of
Franklin. Mr. Baer is claimed to be a
very popular matt in Somerset county, but
he is not likely to make up more at home
than he will lose in Franklin, so that the
probabilities are that he has been set up to
be pretty badly knocked down.
10_, The Republican Legislative Con
ferees of the district composed of the coun
ties of. Bedford and Fulton have jointly
signed a card, without a formal meeting,
declaring Hon. S. P. Wishart, of Fulton
county, the Republican nominee for As

Legislature gave universal satisfaction.—
He is a man of integrity and ability, and
should be re-elected, and if the proper ef
fort is made we believe he can be.
AG: ,.. : The Democratic press appears to be
very touch tickled at the nomination of a
temperance ticket. We wish them all the
amusement they can find in it. While
they are being amused with this nice little
toy let Republicans go to work ana roll up

will chakrin these easily tickled fellows for
the next ten years to collie.

European correspendenoe,
DEAR JOURNA ' L :-We left the city Of Brus
sels July 24th for the city of Cologne, distance
150 miles; passed through a fine farming coun
try and several large cities and towns. The
first was the city of Louvrine with 40,000 in
habitants—a great manufacturing city for
woolen goods and dimities. There is also a
University here and some 850 students. Also
the city of Liege on the river Muese, some
400,p0u initahitants, and g grtat raaattlitctnr
ing place--"the Pittsburgh" of Belgium. Next
place of note was Aix La Chappel, with about
50,000 inhabitants; this place is toted for its
manufacturing of buttons and needles. Here
we entered the Prussian lines, and reached
Cologne at 3 o'clock, p, and put up at the
Hotel De Holland, on the bank of the river
Cologne is situated on the left side of the
river Rhine, and contains a population of
125,000. It is the capital of the Province and is
the third city of importance in the irussian
Kingdom. The chief glory of Cologne is its
magnificent Cathedral or Minister of St. Paul.
It was commenced in 1248 and is still unfin
ished. Its length is 500 feet, width 391 feet,
it 9 tower, when finished, will be 500 feet high
~,the steeple is 350 feet high. The work is
still progressing and 628 masons are now at
work at the towers, The organ has 42 stops
and 0,000 pipes. Behind the alter is the chapel
of Magi, or the three Kings of Cologne—our
guide told us that the silver cast contains the
three wise men who came from the east to
Bethlehem, to present their presents to the
infant Christ, and that the surrounding valu
ables of jeweils, Re., are worth $6,000,000.
There is considerable of manufacturing iu this
city; there are twentyrfive manufacturers of
the article the ladies and gentlemen use, called
cologne ; every visitor here boys a few bottles.
Left 'Cologne July 25th on the steamboat for
the city of Mayence, 130 miles southeast, but''
up the river Rhine ; our party here increased,
others joining us at this place. The country
on each side of the Rhine for some twenty ,
miles was level and beautifully cultivated;
until we reached the seven mountains from
there, over 100 miles, the country on either
side was more or less moustaneous, or high
bills, continually changing in aspect, the
slopes of the hilfs col.oped to the very top for
from o ! _ourth to half mile With grapes, in
tersected now and then with small patches of
grass and grain; some of those mountain
slopes are es steep as the cut through Jacks
narrows • the stalls has been gathered and
walls made from 5 to 15 feet high, and terraces
between from 20 to 100 feet wide planted with
grapes. I counted over thirty of these lines
of walls from the base to the summit of the
slopes of these hills. The Rhine is dotted
with towns on each side, some of them fine
business points; every four or five miles you
will sae old Castles, stuck up on souse high ,
cliff of rock,, some of then, are kept up and
others are crumbling down ; one of thoSe as
ties or fortresses called Elirenbreitstein, justly
termed the Gibraltar of the Rhine, is built on
a precipitous rock 377 feet above the Rhine ;
it never was taken but twice, once by strategy,
and once by famine. At this place the city of
Coblenz is situated at the confluence of the
Moselle and the Rhine, one of the most beau
tiful cities I have visited. The-fortt , ess on
the opposite side, overlooking the city, with
the Moselle flowing into the Rhine, gives it a
delightful appearance to the eye of the visitor.
Speak of your Hudson river l The Rhine throws
every river I have seen, far in the shade.
This has been the most interesting day I have
ever put in through all my travels in life; no
pen can describe the ever changing scenery of
the noble Rhine. No wonder the Prussians
fought so nobly to prctect and defend their
country along the Rhine. We passed the no
ble Palace of Prince Frederick, of Prussia,
now the summer l'alace of the Crown Prince,
250 feet above the Rhine, built on a solid rock,
with beautiful surroundings of trees and
Along the river Rhine, and at hlayence, we
saw several grist mills built on large flat
boats, anchored in the stream, and the wheels
turned by the stream in the river; the stream
being much swifter than in our waters.
We arrived at the city of Mayence the eve
ning of the 25th inst., and put up at the Hotel
De Holland. Next morning (26th) we visited
the barracks and parade grounds, and viewed
the military drilling—some 7,000 are stationed
here. This city contains 45,000 inhabitants,
and is in Hesse Darmstadt. These German
soldiers area splendid looking set of men, and
we find more or less wherever we stop, sonic
returning from the seat of war.
We left this city this forenoon for Heitlle
burg, distance 60 miles; passed through a
beautiful valley, the flats or plains were culti
vated with grain of various kinds. Here was
the first corn we saw growing since we left
the United States. All along the slopes of
the bluffs vine-yards were planted. We
stopped off the train, for two hours, at the
city of Worms. As early as 1253 its popula
tion was 70,000. At the commencement of
the 30 years' war this number was reduced to
40,000. At the present period 11,000. The
Cathedral is a massive building, consecrated
in 1010, in the presence of Emperor Henry 11.,
with many paintings and sculptures in it ; one
of the most striku,g sculptures is the repre
senting of Daniel in the lion's den. The Bap
tistry has some large sculptures. We visited
the monument and gardens of Luther, which
are magnificent; also the spot where the Diet
of April, 1521, in which Luther defended his
doctrines in the presence of Charles V, six
electors and a.numerous assembly. He being
defended by McLanctlion anti the Roman
Catholics by the Dean Jacob Von Eltz. Lu
ther's language was,"here 1 stand, I cannot do
otherwise, God helping me."
We arrived at Ilerdleburg in the evening,
and put up at the Ilotel De Darmstadt. The
place contains 17,000 inhabitants, situated on
the river Necker ; it has a University, with
800 students. The town itself contains little
of interest, except the Castle,which is situated
on a wooded slope 320 feet above the town,
and erected in the year 1400. In the Orleans
war the French caused the Castle to be partly
blown down; there is a cask in it which is
said to bold seven hundred thousand bottles
of wine; it has been filled three times ; there
is a dancing room on the top of the cask, and,
it is said, the man who attends to the room
drinks ten bottles a day himself. The church
of the Holy Ghost is a fine building ; the one
part of it is occupied by the Lutheran ProteS
taut, and the other by the Catholics.
We left this morning, (July 27th), by rail
road, for Baden Baden, some 70 miles, passed
through a wide and fertile plain, dotted here
and there with fine villages peeping from
among innumerable trees, passed the town of
Kislow, formerly a hunting seat, now a peni
tentiary for women. We passed through the
Black forest, near Baden. Arrived at Baden
Baden, at 2 p. m., and put up at Hotel Victoria.
This is a great watering place, both cold and
hot springs, This is a rich city, here the
lords and aristocracy reside; the population
is 40,000. This place is noted for gambling—
gambling houses are situated in the centre of
the town, and splendidly fitted up and licensed,
accompanied with fine bands of mus c to at
tract and draw the strangers. We visited
this gambling bell, and it was fearful to see
fine looking ladies and gentlemen throwing
down their stakes and taking their chance.
We also visited the New Castle on the hill,
400 feet above the river Oos ; it was founded
in 1479, and has been beautifully fitted up in
the interior with paintings and gnilded work ;
it is now the residence of the Grand Duke of
Baden. ,It has subterranean vaults 100 feet
under ground, various apartments and cells,
with massive stone doors, which were used in
former Hales for dungeons; the gardens and
fish ponds around it are beautiful.
We left Baden Baden this morning for
Strausburg, 43 miles by rail ; arrived there at
10 -o'clock, a. m. Strausburg, formerly the
capital of Lower Alsace, in France, now in
Germany—before-we reached Strausburg we
passed through Kehl, on the Rhine, in Ger
many, where the French made the first attack
and burned the town. The Germans, after
wards, blowed up the bridge—Strausburg has
a population of 100,000, and has two canals
passing through the city. It is-the strongest
fortified city on the Rhine and has the largest
arsenal. Four of us hired a carriage and drove
outside of the city and viewed the forts and
battlements; they have small canals, filled
with water, on the side of each fortification
ter She eitv: but, notwithstanding all of
their fortifications, the Germans made them
surrender, taking fields of guns; you can see
cannon and caisons by the acre. The city is
well guarded by German soldiers, and the
burnt houses, churches and forts are giving
way for more beautiful ones, under the domin
ion of th. Germans.
Our party, which now has increased to some
eighty,(and according to the arrangements of
Mr. book), ok), met in the great Cathedral a few
minutes before 12 o'clock, and, when the mo
ment arrived, the wonderful and interesting
clock began to strike the hour of twelve; one
old man, with his hammer, came out on the
platform and struck it, and following him the
twelve Apostles, as large as life, in their old
apostolic dress, passed around the Saviour,
making a bow to him, cone by one in-succes
sion, the Saviour saluting them. The gay old
cock clapping his wings three times and three,
crowing at three distinct intervals. The
cathedral is a massive structure, the tower
being '524 feet high, ascended by some 700
steps, with three large platforms, to the first,
245 feet from the street, to the second, 300
feet, and third, 70 feet ; when you get to the
top, as your correspondent did; you will begin I
to think you are most at the top of Jacob's
ladder; from this point you can see the Black
forest, 50 miles distant.
We arrived at this place, Basle, Switzerland'
this evening, and put up at the Hotel of the
three Kings; it is the largest hotel we have
seen on the banks of the Rhine; there are
two hundred visitors here on their way to the
mountains of Switzerland.
As my letter is now too long, I bid you adieu
for the present, Fours,
Porter Township Accounts
Ma. Rum', Township Auditors are required,
by a late act of our legislature, to publish a state
ment of the accounts in their respective townships
as they find them or as approved by them at their
annual settlements. If I am correctly informed
the Auditors of this (Porter) township, have only
partially attended to the duty of settling the town
ship accounts, and as yet, they have published uo
statement. The law, I believe, impo.•es a penalty
of fifty dollars, for neglect of duty. Our Auditors,
we believe, have entirely neglected to settle with
the Treasurer of the School funds, and in looking
user the annual reports for the last three years, J.
have come to the eomlusion that there are same
things that need an explanation. For exampla
fur the year ending June, 1609, the rate is reported
5 mills: the amount of tax levied, $2,006 22; the
amount paid over by the collectors,s2,ooo 75; and
the State appropriation, Sib!, making the total
amount received, 02,151 73.
The cost of instruction is reported - - $1,200 00
Fuel and contingencies, - - - - - 222 00
Repairing School Houses, &c., - - - 470 9t
A eeording to this statement there should remain
$ll9 78-in the Treasurer's hand+. but the district
is reported to he Indehted $l2O, There was no
building done this year, and no mere than the us
ual amount of repairing, and 1, as a tax-payer.
would like to hove the items named that cost the
di s t r i c t the s um of f 3,111 07, and also to have the
diserepeuey of over $l5O in the halanee explained.
For the year 1870, the rate is reported 11 mills
on the dollar; the amount of tax levied, $3, , 52 39;
the am't paid over by collector, $3157 00
State appropriation, - - - 115 41
Cost of instruction, - . - $1 too 00
Fuel an.l contingencies - :191 7-t
Coat of School llotl o, , - 1220 1,0
According to this statement there should remain
in the hands of the Treasurer a balanc, of $481,60,
but the reported balance is $330 26.
Now, I wish to have explained how a tax of five
mills on the dollar for the year 1869, amounted to
$2,137 73, and the next year with about the same
valuation, a tax of 11 mills on the dollar only
... t ints to $3,482 36. If I have not forgotten the
principles of proportion the amount of the dupli
cate fur MO, should be about $1,400 00. I wish
to have the item for the fuel and contingencies
named, and the discrepancy of $l5O in the balance
For the year ending June, ISM the Around Re
port is not publi,licd, but there are some things in
the accounts of this year, if the directors have in
formed me correctly in regard to them, that needs
explanati. also.
The rate was ten mills on the dollar and taking
into consideration that each citizen subject to an
occupation tax, was taxed on his occupation, and
two dollars beside; the tax if fairly and equitably
laid most have ftwouute4 to abont $4,200 08 the
Stag' appsopitatuM $lOO, Making. a total of
$4,330 00, •
Cost of instructitm - - - $1,300 00
500 11$
iucl and contingencies, say
1,500 00
This statement, Supposing the accounts to have
been square at the end of last year, would leave a
balance of $1,150 00 in the Treasurer's hands, and
if th e A nnua l Reports for the two preceding years
are correct,a total balance of near 51,500 00, but I
am informed that at toe annual settlement there
was only a balance of about 5200 in the Treasurer's
hands. The Annual Reports on which I have
based my statements arc certified to under oath by
the President of the School Board, they are attest
ed by the Secretary. and approved by the County
Superintendent. Now, what I ask in that the
Auditors, School Directors, County Superintendent
or some one who knows, will explain satisfactorily
the financial condition of our township in regard
to the School funds, and then in regard to Bounty
and Road taxes. TAX-PAYER.
The Judgeship.
Me. EDITOR : In reply to the communication in
the JOURNAL of the Uth inst., headed t'The.Judge
ship," it may be fairly said that Judge Taylor was
at liberty to accept a nomination front the Repub
licans, if he could procure it; and he was, therefore,
clearly justified in making an effort to have confe
rees appointed favorable to himself. As he is more
familiar with the qualifications of the candidates
for this office from Blairand Cambria, than perhaps
any other man in the district, it may also be fair
ly replied. that so far as he has expressed any prefer
ence for the nomination of Mr. Read, such prefer
ences is the result of a conviction of the superior
qualifications of this gentleman for the office.
From the signatures of numerous leading Republi
cans in Blair county, to the letters requesting
Judge Taylor to be an independent candidate, as
well as front conversations with otherleadingparty
men in that county, it is manifest much dissatis
faction prevails there towards Mr. Dean; while in
Cambria county, no leading Republican has sign
ed any such letters. and the whole party is firmly
united upon Mr. Meade. From consideration of
fitness, as well as of availability, the nomination of
the candidato from Canil,ria would scent to hr de
sirable. A REPUBLICAN.
The Genuine Ku Klux,
The city of Raleigh, North Carolina,
was thrown into a wild state of excite
ment on Friday on the arrival of the west
ern train, when the fact became known
that Assistant United States Marshals J.
G. Hester and M. Keith had in limbo a
- band ofdisguised Ku - Klux, captured by
them the night previous in Moore county.
The marshals had in charge and marshaled
through Fayetteville street about a dozen
white men, live of whom were in full uniform.
The disguise, which •was of the most fright
ful and ludicrous character, was made of
black glazed cambric, lace-covered with
the same, with holes for the month and
eyes, touched off with a white substance.
The hat made of like material, is cone
shaped, and about thirty-six inches in
These gentry were marched up to
United States Commissioner Shaffer's of
fice, where an examination was waived.
The Carolina Era gives the following
account of the capture of the band :
Deputy Marshal Hester and Deputy
Keith arrived at Swan's Station Wednes
day, 3d, at 12 o'clock, as tobacco peddlers.
They met a man by the name of *John
Gager, who hailed them and asked, "what
the news was."
Ile was asked what kind of news he
wished to hear, and he replied "Conven
tion news."
He approached Keith and gave him the
Ku Klux grip, which was returned. The
marshal an his deputy were at once taken
into confidence. Glaster was confident
they were Ku Klux, and whenever their
loyalty to the Klan was questioned he
vouched for them. Gaster told Keith he
had helped to send many a negro to hell
before the election, and that as soon as
the excitement was over lie intended to
send as many more.
On the Saturday preceding their arri
val a meeting of the klan at Jonesboro
had passed sentence upon a colored man
and a white man ; the white man was to
be hung until he was dead, and the colored
man was to be whipped.
Owing to the arrival of a squad of
United States soldiers in the neighborhood
on the night appointed for the raid it was
postponed until last night, when the klan
was to meet at the Marshal's (tobaceo ?)
wagon and uniform themselves for the
raid. The man who kept the uniforms
was in this city trying to give bail for a
Tormer offense. -train Ets. AlSence the
di,ifbrnis were -removed from - his house
to the house of Murk. M'Keiver. A man
was sent to his house and -the disguises,
ten in number, obtained. The party
assembled at the wagon and were at once
arrested by the Marshal. The followin g
are the names of the men arrested:
William W. Wicker, Jesse Bryan, It. NI
Bryan, J. W. Gaster, William J. Bryan
and D. M'lver, all of Moore county. Bryan
and Wicker, who are charged with the
murder of Murkerson M'Ctne, were com
mitted to jail to await an examination,
which is postponed two weeks for want of
The other four were allowed to give
bail in the sum of two thousand dollars
each for their appearance at the Septem
ber term of the United States Circuit
John Plaster turns State evidence, and
hi .developments will reveal a state of
affairs which will startle the public, and
implicate parties little suspected.
Marshal Hester deserves special credit
for his earnest artd successful efforts to ar
rest and bring the members of this diabol
ical organization to justice. It seems that
the Ku Klux Klan is still in existence in
the State, and though several hundred
have bean detected and arrested it will re
quire considerable vigilance on the part of
the officers of the law to entirely crush
this diabolical organization.
A Telling Rebuke to Southern Arro-
Hon. B. 11. Hill, of Georgia, in a re
cent address before the Alumni of the
State University, alluded to the evils
which had been brought upon the South
by Slavery, and, as a consequence, a
large part of the Georgian press opened
upon him with the most violent denuncir
tions. This led Mr. Hill to write a letter,
in which appears the following para
graphs :
• With every ingredient more abundant
at home, we send to the originally barren
North for fertilizers to give life to our
originally fertile, now deadened soil:
with the line.t wee and ea hanstirm wont
beds peeping at us from our own hill sides;
with the richest land on the continent, we
send North for bread to feed our children;
with the noblest trees that ever lifted
their tops toward heaven, if we want a
finer church in•-which to worship, or a
wore convenient residence in which to live,
we send north for the plan, for the archi
tect, and for the builder! We spend mil
lions of dollars sending our children North
to be educated, and refuse the smallest
pittance for the endowment of universities
at home.
$2,001 97
Our physicians and surgeons send
North for their medicines to heal, and for
the tools that secure skill in their delicate
art; our lawyers send North for the books
in which to learn the rule of justice for
our people ; our preachers send North for
commentaries on the Bible to teach their
flocks the way of salvation ; our editors
send North for type to print their papers ;
and lawyers, preachers and editors make
low , speeches, say long prayers, and fill
whole columns, thanking God for sn
parlor tionthorn genies, parity and learn
ing! And our politicians, all . shades of
Demosthenes and Cicero, bend down and
hear the matchless periods of true patriot
ic eloquence. Our politicians strut like
condescending Jupiters to the hustings,
with Northern hate on their beads, North
ern shoes on their feet, and Northern coats
on their books, and prove to gaping crowds
their unequalled fitness for office in
straining their lungs as the thundergust
doth the yielding clouds with noisy de,
nunciations of Northern weakness and
greed and climactic enlogies on Southern
power and independence!.
The Pittston Tragedy ,
Volunteers at Work to Baku, the Entomb
ed Aliners—All the Bodies Recovered—
Nantes of the llEtterlEntointed.
PITTSTON, PA., At7gust 15.—At the
present time it is difficult to estimate the
full damage caused by the explosion, but
it is not believed any of the men at work
in the mine will be recovered alive. In
the entering chamber, where the explosion
occurred, a fallen rock was found which
laid partly upon a car completely blocking
up one side just sufficient for a man to
force himself through. Some distance fur
ther on there WaS another fall of rock which
completely filled the passage, and beyond
this the men are walled so completely in
that it will take most persistent labor to
reach them.
Volunteers are now at work endeavoring
to get around this fallen rock so that they
can reach the entombed miners, but the
density of black damp prevents them from
prosecuting the work with much effect.—
They are continually being brought up in
an exhausted condition, but their places
are immediately supplied by other volun
teers, and the work goes on unremittingly.
Al that mortals can do is being done to
rescue the unfortunates, but only blacken
ed, disfigured remnants of mortality have
thus far rewarded the toilers. On the
outside the scene is heartrending in tne
extreme. Thousands of sympathizing ci
tizens, miners and others are present, ren
dering all the assistance possible under the

the poisonous pit. The women are every
doing what they can to minister to
the wants of the exhausted volunteers as
they are borne like helpless children from
the mouth of the pit. Great caldrons of
stemming coffee are ready, and all known
restoratives are on hand. Sad hearts are
everywhere to-night. Some display sym
pathy with the bereaved friends who are
mourning for their dead.
This mine has been nearly exhausted,
and was known to be filled with black
damp, but it was considered safe, and has
been constantly worked since the conclu-
sion of the strike, although not at its full
capacity. Twelve feet of gas was found in
the heading, just off the gangway, which
had been traversed all day by explorers
with naked lights, and the merest accident
would have caused another and worse ex
plosion, involving a loss of at least fifty
lives during the forepart of the night.
Those assuming control have ordered
the pumps reversed. The water has been
forced down the shaft, thus helping to in
crease the volume of pure air and expel the
foul. Superintendent Kendrick and in
spector Belewitt are preparing to descend
into the mine, but should they find their
expectations of replenishing the avenue
with pure air realized, they will hardly be
able to draw away the debris necessary to
reach the imprisoned miners before morn
ing. The following persons are known to
have been in the mine at the time of the
accident : David Harris, James Morgan,
Thomas Levshon, Evan Jones, Benjamin
Davis, Robert Hughes, Benj. Williams,
Edward Owen, John Mangan, Richard
Owen, M. Quinley and Martin Mangan.
There are many theories as to the cause of
the disaster, but the general opinion .is
that it is due to the explosion of fire damp,
the first intimation that anything was
wrong being the rattling and jostling of
the descending car, as the air rushed out
of the shaft with such velocity as for a
motnentto stop it.
Midnight—:Three volunteers have just
been taken out insensible, and no further
attempts will be made before daylight,
Five bodies only have been taken out.
The body of Benjamin Davis was brought
up shortly after the explosion, and about
three o'clock the body of Evan Jones was
brought up. During the afternoon the
dead bodies of Thomas Levshon, James
Morgan and D. Haines were recovered
from the mine.
