K. ALLEN LOVELL,
Huntingdon, Sept. 4, 1871.
OUR CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT
To-day we fill the last remaining apace
in our ticket with the name of JOHN
DEAN, Esq., of Hollidaysburg, for Pre
sident Judge. The ticket is -now complete,
and the duty of electing it follows, and this
can and will be done.
In Mr. Dean the Republican party has
a candidate worthy of its most ardent and
enthusiastic support. He is an able law
yer, a fine logician, an excellent discrimi
nator, and a clever gentleman. He is, in
short, fully competent. to discharge the on
erous duties of a President Judge, and, if
elected, will make au able and upright
Around him the Republican party can
rally, feeling that they are urging a candi
date worthy, in every way, of their suffra
ges, and though they may admire and have
the warmest feelings for the distinguished
gentleman who now occupies the Bench,
yet our duty to the party now and its ma
terial welfare hereafter, all demand that
they should stand by its nominees. We have
felt warmly for Judge Taylor, and feel so
now, but the Judge has placed himself out
side of the party lines and we cannot en
courage disorganization in any shape or
form, nor can the Republican party. Un
fortunately for the Republicans of Hun
tingdon county they have too long encour
aged this sort of thing. Three-fourths of
her important offices stand ready, in the
hands of Democrats, to mock her, and is
this not enough ? We think so, andgood
Republicans everywhere think so. Their
experience tells them there is no safety
outside of a good organization, and in the
future they mean to stand by the ticket,
and especially so when the nominees are
men abundantly qualified for their respec
tive • positions, as is the case in the ticket
presented to the Republican voters of this
county at the coming election.
We expect Mr. Dean to be elected, but
to accomplish this much desired object it
will require his friends, and the friends of
once with a will. We know that nothing
political can be accomplished without work.
See to it, friends, that every man is seen
and stirred up to do his duty! Work!
Work ! ! WORK !! ! from now until the
evening of the second Tuesday in October!
fa_ The Democracy are greatly disap
pointed at the perfect harmony that pre
vails in the Republican party, and the
sure success of the whole ticket in Octo
ber; they do not give up their scheming
however, but are using every conceivable
means to create a rupture in the Republi
can ranks; they even circulate a story that
there is a split in their own ranks, hoping
to throw Republicans off their guard, but
the idea is so absurd that only a ninny
would believe it. Could any one believe
that when voting day comes, that ten
Democrats in the county will cut their
tickets? They know little of the history
of that party, and nothing about the crack
of the party lash, who believe it. The
groaers in that party are always soon
brought to terms, and they are made to
swallow whatever dose their leaders con
coct be it "New Departure," or what.

have simmered down until there is nothing
left of it but the Good Templar. Cap

This means 30,000 votes ! Can Tammany
survive such a loss ? We think not.

Coroner, including both, otherwise the
Republican party might as well disband.

much out of humor with the Republican

arrest of George 0. Evans, the embezzler,
and if there is any law for his case he will
be tried at the bar of justice as he has
been at the bar of public opinion. We

cast for Spangler and Wheeler will take a
vote off of Stanton and Beath. Mark that!
m. The Democratic organs appear to
be very much exercised because General
Grant stays at the sea-side - during the heat

something to grumble at ?
i te t .. It is reported from Harrisburg that
Deputy Attorney-General McClure has been
removed from office, by the Attorney-Gen

the Attorney-General countenance the
course of Evans ?
WO' By a circular, published in another
column, addressed to the Good Templars
of the State, it will be seen how the third

friends of the Good Templar have a big

new. As there is no election to be held
in South Carolina this year the Democrats
will scarcely have the hardihood to accuse
Senator Scott of interfering to control the
elections. He promised the loyal people of
that State that he would see that they
were protected, and he means to do it.
ye. Republicans, do not listen to the
man who asks you to cut your ticket this
Fall, he is the tool of the Democrats, who
are driven to all manner of tricks to try to
keep afloat their sinking ship. The Re
publican ranks are solid, and success is
sure; and we can laugh at the flimsy and
futile schemes of the enemy.
NM. We have just seen a Democratic
paper which is very much concerned lest
the temperance. men be induced to with
draw their ticket. The Democrats know
very well that Republicans alone vote tem

up this ticket, want to elect Democrats to
office in the liquor interest ? It looks so.

strange? Temperance men, why does the

our sister towns, above and below us, are
suffering with pestilential diseases ? If
they do not, it is high time that they would
waken up to the reality. There is entirely
too much filth in the cellars, alleys and
gutters of this place. A committee should
be appointed by the Council to visit every
portion of the town and see that the pro
per sanitary precautions are taken. We
doubt whether there is a town in the State
that contains more filth than Huntingdon.
We are sorry to have to say so, but never

this subject again we will waken some peo

has always voted that ticket, accosted a
friend of ours, the other day, with :
"Hello, John, I see you still stick to
the niggers !"
Our friend, who was interested for some
colored people, assented that he did, but
suggested that the Democratic party had
got into the same boat.
"Oh, no, you can't make me believe
that," said old true blue. -
"But," argued our friend, "you have

• gek. Mrs. Victoria C. Woodhull, of New
York, has been nominated by the Victoria
League for President of the United States,
and in her letter of acceptance proposes the
following programme :
It is possible, therefore, that if I Am your can
didate, I may be elected.
I propose to rendezvous, again at Washington the
coming winter. No Repri,tatative or Senator will
be more punctual than I. But Ido not l o there,
to argue the question of out rights. The argu
ment is concluded. I shall go accompanied by a
corps of the representative women of the land, to
insist on the practical recognition of rights which
arc already, by the public verdict, theoretically es
abax.l ....moo F to `. Wn shall damn, Cllnt
that be made existearriejacto which already esisfa
de jure. We shall claim the passage of a Declar
atory Act, merely the signing of a judgement on
the basis of the verdict already rendered in our
favor; and wo to the political trickster or petti
fogger who shall dare to hinder our rights by any
motion in arrest of judgment or otherwise for
' "' "
I expect to succeed. Ido not expect that the
women will leave Washington this very winter un
til after such Declaration Act shall form part of
the statutes of the country. It is simply scanda
lous that a nation whose very existence rose out of
the axiom, no taxation without representation, alt I
who fought for that principle to the death, should
persist for a single year, after the subject is fairly
- broached, to impose on us taxation and refuse us
representation ; or that a people whose fundamen
tal political idea is opposition to all elass.legisla
tion should disfranchise, by the act of a minority,
the very largest class of its citizens.
The early coming of female participation in the
business of legislation is inevitable; and from now
on, destruction will await the politician who does
not heed the rising tide. The action of every pub
lic man on this question is noted, and the Nemesis
of political destiny will overtake every recreant to
the true principles of a real republic, which in
volves the equality of woman. Republicanism
shall hare its fair trial, which it never has had
hitherto. If female suffrage is as experiment, so
was republicanism itself; and this is the next ex
periment to be tried in the order of governmental
evolution. And as it absolutely has to be tried,
those who would prolong the crisis of -its inaugu
ration are mere obstructions, and enemies of the
public peace. In many a revolution the real dis
turbers are, when the matter is looked at deeply,
those who oppose it. If a thing is in accordance
with the spirit of the age, it cannot be successful
ly resisted; and who does not know that the spirit
of this age is unbounded emancipation
It is the merest waste of time, therefore, to
fight any longer over this dead issue. Let both
the old effete and dying-out political parties be
wise at once. Let them "accept the situation,"
and inaugurate from now the still greater "new
departure." Slavery has been abolished. The
world waits for this other and more hidden, but
no less real, slavery of restrictions on women to
be, likewise, hustled out of existence and relegated
to the limbo of the put.

WASHINGTON, September I.—The Columbia
(S. C.) Union, in itsleading editorial yesterday,
seems to have been advised of the intention of
Senator Scott to urge upon the President the
strictest enforcement of the KuKlux law, as
the conclusion of the article shows. It is as
follows : "The difference between the conduct
of Southern Democratic journals and journals
of the North are very apparent. Whenever an
outrage against law occurs in any Northern
State the press is never backward in denoun
cing it, no matter whether the parties be black
or white, Democrats or Republicans. Here
everything is worked in the interests of one
party. The latest raid into Orangeburg by an
hundred, more or less, of disguised men hard
ly drew a protest from a single Democratic
journal, while some of them even seek to cover
up and hide the offence. We have been de
sirous that peace and quiet should prevail in
order that there might be no reason for the
enforcement of the KnKlux law, but .we are
now confident that nothing but the strong
arm of the United States Government will
bring peace and order to the State, and this
we believe will soon be brought into requisi
tion. Many persons in the disaffected sections
profess to prefer martial law to the present
Government, and to all such we will say, the
ROVecta-now are that you will soon have
your preferences gratified. Forbearance has
ceased to be a virtue and martial law in cer
tain localities has become almost a necessity.
We hope the National Government will use
every means at its command to preserve the
peace in this State, and will enforce the Ku-
Klux law to the very fullest extent; there is
no use in being mealy-mouthed about these
matters any longer. The first duty of the
Government is to protect the live. and prop
erty of its citizens, and when a State govern
ment fails to do this it then becomes incum
bent upon the National Government to make
good the defection. In North Groliva the
United States authorities are actively at work
arresting these scamps, who make night hid
eous with the r devilish transactions, and we
have the assurance that operations will soon
commence here. The first thing we want is a
United States marshal who knows his duty in
the premises, and knowing it has the courage
to perform it. Such an one we must have, if
it breaks every political slate in the State."
ORGANIZED VIOLENCE THE MOTTO-THE COLORED
PEOPLE FLEEING FROM TRIER ASSASSINS-MORE
EVIDENCE AGAINST THE lICKLIJX.
WASHINGTON, September I.—lncidents con
nected with the terrible state of affairs in
Western South Carolina continue to be receiv
ed. The most depressing effect on the labor
of the region has followed the organized vio
lence which necessitates the enforcement of
the laws, even to the exercise of martial law.
All the colored people who can get away are
doing so. Elias Hill, the remarkable Baptist
preacher, has not yet left, but is endeavoring
to get away with sixty families who have de
termined to go to Liberia. It will be remem
bered that Senator Scott's sub-committee was
serenaded at Yorkville, and a disturbance en
sued, in which one of the colored men receiv
ed five bullet wounds. It was supposed at the
time that this shooting was simply a KuKlux
disturbance, growing out of the bitter feeling
caused by the committee's presence. Facts
which have come to light since establish the
fact that this act was the result of a pre-ar
ranged conspiracy, relating itself to other acts.
The man shot was a negro blacksmith employ
ed by the railroad company on a branch road
from Chester to Yorkville, who had charge of
the shop at the latter place. A raid on the
county treasurer had been planned some time
before the committee's advent. The day be
fore the raid occurred a detachment of United
States troops was ordered from Chester to
Yorkville, and an engine was sent down on
Sunday to bring them up. When midway it
was discovered that three rails had been re
moved, and the engine returned. The troops
wort. not brought, and eho IZnlrtntr '-aid came
off that Sunday night. The treasurer—got
away, but his office was broken open, papers
rifled, etc. It was found that the railroad
blacksmith shop had been -broken open, and
the tools removed which were used in remov
ing and replacing the rails, for singularly
enough, when the Yorkville engine went down
in the morning the road was found in good
condition. There was little doubt that the
parties engaged were connected with the
railroad: The negro blacksmith would have
been an important witness, so the roit was
gotten up for the purpose of killing him. He
did not die, however, but has been obliged to
leave that section. KuKlux disorders in Bas
trop county, Texas, are reported. Gov. Davis
announces his intention to proclaim and en
force martial law there.
SENATOR SCOTT'S APPEAL.
411 S LETTER TO TUE PRESIDENT ON THE SITUATION
Westin:taro; Sept.l.—The following is the let
ter of Senator Scott in full
To the President of the United States
Stu Since the return of the sub-committee sent
to the State of South Carolina by the joint com
mittee of Congress appointed "to inquire into the
condition of the late insurrectionary States, so far
as regards the execution of the laws and the safety
of the lives and property of citizens of the United
States," communications have been forwarded to
me from citizens of Spartanburg and York coun
ties, and from the older commanding the United
States troops at Yorkville, which I consider it my_
duty to bey before you with this letter.
The sub-committee visited both these counties
and took testimony in them. That testimony has
not all been printed, but with this I forward the
testimony of Rev. A. W. Cummings, of Spartan
burg, and of Colonel Lewis Merrill, relating to
York county. That of Dr. Cummings shows that
from October last until July, when the committee
was there, outrages had been committed upon two
hundred and twenty-seven eitzens, whose names
are-given, two of whom had been murdered. This
list does not embrace all the cases that have oc
curred, and the deputy marshal in that county
testified that the actual number largely exceeds
this. Some forty or fifty persons were before the
committee, who proved the outrages committed
upon themselves and others by bands of armed
men in disguise. The extent of this violence was
so great that leading citizens of that county were
informed that if any of the witnesses who testified
were interfered with, or if outrages of a character
similar to those proved were again committed, the
fact would be reported to the President, that he
might consider the propriety of exercising the full
extent of the powers conferred upon him for the
protection of citizens of the United States against
such lawlessness. It is due to these citizeas to say
that they promised to exert their influence to re
press disorder, and I have since seen published no
tices of meetings held for that purpose.
Before the committee left, one witness, who had
been examined, reappeared and testified that he
had bought a gun, returned home, and had been
visited by armed men in 'disguise, from whom he
escaped, but who took his gun away and threaten
ed to his family that they would kill him.
I forbore to report this case, hoping that the
promise of leading citizens would be fulfilled, and
be effective to stop further violence. On the same
day that the committee left Spartanburg the coun
ty court assembled.
As an evidence of how far the State law is effec
tive in reaching such offences I quote an extract
from the report of the grand jury, made under date
of July nth:.
We regret to report that we have heard of a number of
outs ages having been committed in various portions of the
county, tut express the hope that the good and influen
tial men in every part of the community will unite their
efforts in preventing every infraction of the law and in
assuring to all perfect security in their person and prop
This is the notice taken of such a state of affairs
as that presented by Dr. Cummings' testimony.
No man has yet been convicted orpunished in that
county for any of these offences. Dr. Cummings'
letter of the 10th inst., states that a number of out
rages have been committed since the eommitte left
—one of them, as appears by the affidavit of Dr.
Bates, of a most brutal character. One of the
witnesses before the committee is also stated to be
now a refugee in Spartanburg, having been threat
ened with death.
Colonel Merrill's testimony gives the names of
sixty-eight victims of violence in York county
since October last, six of whom were killed; and
shows the actual number to have been from three
to four hundred. His letters and that of Hon. A.
S. Wallace. which I enclose, inform me that since
the committee left the Kuklux bare renewed their
deeds of violence and crime in that county ; whip
ping inoffensive men "for no other cause than their
skin," and burning a negro school house.
The state of insecurity was, I am satisfied, as
great in Union county as in either of those above
named, one witness having testified that the coun
ty was it effect under Kuklux rule, that no order
issued by the Klan would be disregarded. As
showing the state of feeling in that county, the
number and power of the organization, and espe
cially to give the views of those who think it no
part of their duty to have such offences as arc
committed by the'Ruklux prosecuted, I submit to
you the testimony of R. W. Shand, Esq., a promi
nent Democratic lawyer of that county. I have no
report of any renewal of violence in that county
since the visit of the committee. Information has
been sent me of occurrences in Chester, Fairfield,
and Newberry counties which would indicate that
the cessation of lawlessness is but temporary.
The state of public sentiment in the counties of
Spartanburg, Union. Laurens. Newberry, Chester,
and York, is such that if there outbreaks contin
ue there is no hope of protection from the local
tribunals, and I earnestly invite your Excellency's
attention to the testimony submitted, with a view
to action for the protection of those who have so
long suffered without redress. The cruelties that
have been inflicted in Spartanburg and York coun
ties are shocking to humanity, crimes that ought
not to go unpunished in any civilized country.
Their perpetrators are at large and unwhipped of
justice. Although inquiry has been made in their
midst, and the enormity of their crimes exposed,
and the consequences of their repetition foreshad
owed, the members of these lawless organizations
have again resumed their arms and their midnight
raids of brutality and assassination.
In these counties of Spartanburg and York
crime has run riot with impunity; all warnings
have been disregarded and the effort of the well
disposed citizens have proved unavailing. I sub
mit whether the time has not come, in view of
these facts, when the people of these counties at
least should be informed by proclamation that the
limit of endurance has been reached, and that the
whole power of the Government will be exercised
to protect its citizens in the enjoyment of the rights
and privileges guaranteed to them by the Consti
Reluctant as I am to do so, the facts proven be
fore the committee in these counties, the state of
feeling witnessed there, the warnings given the
citizens, and, in the face of this, the speedy reap
pearance of the same criminal disorders which
have been the subject of investigation. defying the
execution of the laws, rendering life insecure and
property of but nominal value, impel me in justice
to the suffering people who have endurded so much,
and in mercy even to those whose sympathy with
or indifference to their wrongs may arouse a retri
bution more terrible than they dream of—a retri
bution I would go to any lawful length of power
to prevent; all these considerations impel me to
call your attention to the facts contained in the
testimony, letters, and affidavits submitted, and to
ask whether they do not justify such a proclama
tion as to these two counties as is required before
the exercise of the power conferred upon you by
the fourth section of the act of April 25, It7l.
As there are outrages reported in other counties,
and there is some hesitation among the military
officers as to their right to arrest persons found
armed and in disguise upon the highways until af
ter called upon by the civil authorities, let me also
direct your attention to whether you have not the
power of issuing explicit instructions, giving au
thority under the third section of that art to the
military to make arrests of persons found in dis
guise and armed, and to hand them over to the
marshal, directing the military officer to lodge such
information with the United States district attorney
as will enable him to proceed at once and obtain
the evidence spun which to prefer indictments.
Respectfully, Jous Seorr.
THE NOMINATION OF MR. DEAN
Opinions of the Press
By reference to the proceedings pub
lished above, it will be seen that John
Dean, Esq., of this county, has been nom
inated for President Judge of this Judici
al District. Without disparaging the
merits and claims of the other candidates,
we will merely say, that we believe this
the most judicious nomination that could
have been made. Mr. Dean is popular,
one of the most able lawyers in the State,
and the strongest man, we candidly be
lieve, for this position, in Blair county or
the District, and will carry this county by
a majority of from twelve, to fifteen hund
red. He is active, a good Republican, and
will make a spirited contest, and if elected,
of which we have no doubt., he will make
an honest, fair and impartial Judge.
• Now Republicans, you have a ticket,
composed of good, reliable, and honest
men—a better one was never offered to
the support of the people—and we confi
dently expect its triumphant . election. Let
every true Republican, every lover of his
country, every man who desires honesty
and integrity in office, give the ticket his
undivided support.Hollidallsburg Regis
We cannot refrain from expressinr , our
sense of satisfaction over the result of last
Tuesday's Judicial Convention, the pro•
ceedings of which are herewith printed.
Without doubt the nomination of John
Dean, Esq., was the fittest possible to be
made. Mr. Reed, of Cambria, was before
the Convention and his many claims were
duly and fairly caucussed. It is no re
, plu.Aula, mu pauuts Cu IR:lit:re iu
volves little regret upon his part that the
present result was reached.
John Dean, Republican nominee for
President Judge, of the 24th Judicial
District, composed of Blair, Huntingdon
and Cambria, is now thirty-seven years of
age—one year younger than was Judge
Taylor when first elected. He was admit
ted to the bar in Blair county in 1856, and
in 1857 was elected County Snperintend
eat of Common Schools of Blair. In 1859
he resigned his position as County Super
intendent, and entered into a Law part
nership with Hon. S. S. Blair, remaining
in such partnership until 1863.
In 1868, Mr. Dean was elected District
Attorney for Blair county, which position
he now occupies, but, by reason of expira
tion of term, he will gracefully yield the
post to his young contemporary, M. Alex
ander, after the Ides of October.
As a logician, keen, incisive, pungent;
convincing by the masterly arrangement
and elucidation of his theory, Mr. Dean
has few equals at the bar of this State.
'Possessed of that inate dignity usual to
men of highest talents, he never permits
himself to be thrown from his balance
however sudden and artfully the attack
Troughout the District, and by able
jurists in other sections of the Common
wealth, he is considered an able, thorough,
safe and conscientious counsellor.
In private walks of life, he is above re
proach, and will assume his seat young in
years, fresh in mind and body, versed in
law beyond his years, and possessing the
confidence of fellow citizens to an unusual
It may not be deemed inappropriate,
at this point, to allude to the following
language made use of by Judge Taylor in
his charge to the Jury, in the celebrated
case of the Commonwealth vs. Beal, et. al.,
tried in 1869 :
"In our judgment, gentlemen, no conn
"ty in the Commonwealth is favored with
"the services of a more able and efficient
' Judge Taylor's opinion is the opinion of
the entire bar and people of Blair county,
and we shall be surprised, not to say
chagrined, if John Dean don't carry Blair
county by 1200 majority. Every true
Republican must feel it to be his duty to
labor zealously and judiciously to accom
plish that devoutly to be wished result.
The nomination has been made; a staunch
Republican placed in nomination ; the
usages of the party fulfilled, now let petty
bickering and unseemly_ jealousies be
thrown aside, and the "boys" get them
selves into line. The contest will be short
—let it be sharp. Give the enemy hot
shot in front, rear and flanks, and such a
shattered lot of demoralized Unwashed as
will be observable after election, this coun
ty has never seen before.—Tyrone Herald.
In its effect upon the Republican party,
the Cnferonce in this city, last Tuesday,
was the most important ever held in this Ju
dicial district. Composed of men of sterl
ing integrity and of unquestioned fidelity
to the party—men chosen not so much to
nominate any particular candidate as to
nominate a Republican candidate—the de
liberations of the Conference have a signi
ficance seldom attaching to a political body;
and the entire harmony and good feeling
manifested by conferees and spectators, of
whom there was quite a number represen
ting all factions and all interest in the dis
trict, present, is proof that their deter
mination to preserve the integrity of the
party and elect the nominee of the Con
ference, is unalterable.
The duty devolving upon the Confer
ence was as delicate as It was important.
It had to choose one from three most
worthy representatives of the party in the
district—genteleman of unblemished re
putatior:s; lawyers of unquestioned ability;
Republicans possessing the confidence of
the entire district. But that duty, deli
cate as it was, was perfbrined satisflictori
ly, after a free, full and cordial consulta
tion with those representing the several
interests in the party. And in arriving
at the conclusion the Conference did, we
know that the great question—the integ
rity of the party—was the great object in
view as well by the friends . of Messrs.
Read and Brown as by those of Mr. Dean.
Of Mr. Dean, we feel, little need be
said. Throughout the entire district he
is recognized as an attorney of ability,
energy and character. In this county he
has stood for years in the front rank of
his profession, along side such lawyers as
Hon. S. S. Blair, and Hon. John Scott
and others. As District Attorney, and in
his connection with many of the most im
portant causes tried in this county, he has
given evidence of a well stored legal mind
—a familiarity with all branches of law
and practice; clear, concise reasoning;
quickness to see the strong points in a
case and aptness in forcibly presenting
them to a jury.
Now, that our ticket is complete, and
inasmuch as Blair county has been honor
ed by the first nomination on the list, it
becomes the Republican party to signify
their appreciation of that honor, by a vote
commensurate with the importance of the
canvass and the high character of the
gentlemen composing the ticket.—Blair
To the Good Templars of the State
Believing that our views as a body are
misrepresented, and the prosperity and
harmony of our Order seriously endanger
ed by the precipitate manner in which the
"Keystone Good Templar," our paid organ,
has thrown itself into political strife; de
siring that we may not be identified with
that paper in this regard, ivasthuch as we
hold ourselves apart from all political or
ganizations, and especially from the present
so-called I bird party, the Philadelphia
Quarterly Convention, held August 16th,
1871, unanimously adopted the following
WHEREAS, The present editors of the
Keystone Good 'Templar, our recognized
official organ, have in that journal affirmed
that our organization is "Moral and So
cial," and " that it is not and cannot be a
political party organization, and any at
tempt to identify the Order with any polit
ical party must and will be resisted," and
WHEREAS, Two-thirds of the member
ship of this Order is composed of females,
and persons under age who have not the
right of franchise, and
WHEREAS, The Keystone Good Temp
lar is published under the general direc
tion of the Executive Committee, Grand
Lodge of Pennsylvania, I. 0. of G. T., at
an expense of $2OOO per annum, therefore
Resolved, That this Convention does
hereby inquire of said Executive Commit
tee by what authority the said official organ
is edited in the interest of the so-called
prohibitory third party.
Resolved, That this Convention does
hereby express its firm conviction that the
late so-called Temperance Prohibitory Con
vention was an irresponsible and an un
authorized body representing neither the
Good Templars, Sons of Temperance, Tem
ple of I lonor, or any other Temperance
organization, or church organization, what
soever, and we therefore believe that all
advocacy of this so-called third party in
our official organ is wrong, and prejudicial
to the best interests of our Order, and is
calculated only to sow dissensions' in oar
ranks as has already been evidenced at
Resolved, That a Committee of five be
appointed by the W. C. T., of this Con
vention, whose duty it shall be to have a
copy of the foregoing preamble arid reso
lutions transmitted to the Executive Com
mittee of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylva
nia. Also to cause the same to be pub
lished in the daily papers of this city, and
to be printed in circular form and for
warded to the various District Conventions
in the State of Pennsylvania, with the
request that the same be read. The ex
penses of said printing and advertising be
borne by this body.

LONDON CITY, August 12th, 1871
Dean JOURNA.L :—We spent the Sabbath in
Geneva, attended German Reform preaching,
in French, at 10_o'clock, and Scotch Presbyte
rian at 12 ; sermon by Rev. Jameson, of Edin
burg, from First Epistle of Second Peter and
sth verse; it was an excellent discourse. We
left Geneva on the 7th instant for Paris, some
460 miles west, by rail. The country for ten
miles down the Rhone was fine. From there
we entered,the French territory, when the
Jarror Mountains began to close in upon us,
and for twenty-five miles we passed through
one gap after another scarcely sufficiently wide
in places for the railroad and pike, and for
miles uninhabited. At a place called•Bellgard
our baggage was examined and we had to ex
hibit our passports. We then passed through
the city of Macon, on the river Saone; thc
country is beautiful and highly cultivated; we
then went to the city of Digein, where we saw
several regiments of German troops, the offi
cers finely uniformed and the soldiers tall,
sturdy and fine looking. In the trains we pass
ed were large numbers of French troops re
turning as captives from Germany, some of
them wounded. Their dress was red pants,
blue blouse and red cap with blue band.
We reached Paris onthe morning of the Bth,
and put up at the Hotel de United States.,
When we saw the sign we almost imagined we
were at home. Puri:, with a Population of
2,500,000 7 is the city of the world for beauty
and splendor in everything but pure and un
defiled religion. After breakfast some twenty
of us hired an omnibuss and a guide and off
we started to see the sights. We passed down
the La Patois Boulevards, through Champs
Elysees and through the grand Arch de Tri
which is beautiful. At the Arch Tri
omphe thirteen avenues of Boulevards diverge.
We then passed through the gates of the city
and viewed the buildings demolished by the
Government troops in retaking the city from
the Commune. The buildings on the outside
of the walls, on the south side, are nearly all
destroyed; acres upon acres of massive and
broken down walls. We there could see the
desolation at St. Cloud and surroundings, )
which looked sickening and distressing beyond
description. The Prussians, on the east, south
and west, had a beautiful view and position
some five or six miles distant from the city
walls, where they had their batteries planted.
We returned to the city and viewed the shat
tered and remaining walls of the Tuillerics,
Hotel de Ville, Hotel de Invalides, with vari
ous other public buildings and a great many
private dwellings which were burnt by the
Communists. If you want to see destruction
of massive buildings come to Paris. I estimate
the value of the loss of property to be one hurt
dreth part of this great city; the reports we
had through the papers were terribly overra
ted. We then drove to the Cemetery of Mont
martre and viewed some few of the thousands
of monuments and sepulchres. The French
are noted for adorning their tombs and graves
with wreaths and flowers. Inside of the iron
door of their tombs you frequently see two
chairs and a crucifix with wreaths hanging up
on each side. Here in this cemetery, which is
on a hill in the northern part of the city, the
Communists made their last stand. When the
Government troops entered the city on the
west they were finally surrounded, driven to
the cemetery and'captured. Two thousand of
them were executed the first day, and against
the wall where they were made to stand the
blood is visible for the height of three feet.—
We walked over where nine thousand are bu
ried ; they were thrown in with their clothes
on, tar poured over them, then burned and
their bones buried. Our guide thinks there
were 50,000 executed in all. At this time there
are several on trial. By this time, 5 o'clock,
P. M., we ware about played out and turned in
for the night.
On the 9th we took the cars for Versailles,
twelve miles west, where the seat of Govern-
ment is held; population 30,000. We Ltopped
on our way at St. Cloud, and scent an hour
viewing the remains of the Palace and sur
roundings; every house, with the Palace, was
burnt by the Communists. We then proceed
ed to Versailles, where four of us procured a
earring.° and drove to the building where the
trial of Rochefort and nineteen other Commu
nists is in progress before a court martial of
fifteen officers. There is a perfect mania
amongst all classes to get places in the room.
There is room in the hall for eight thousand
persons, and there is already 00,000 applica
tions for tickets of admission. We had a good
view of the officers composing the court, the
barristers and the prisoners. Some of them
are fine looking men. One of them was dress
ed in a splendid uniform and the others in
citizens' dress. We drove out through the
parade grounds, which are large and fine.—
There are 200,000 soldiers at this place and
40,000 in Paris. There are 18,000 Communists
prisoners confined in the Barracks here. The
Palace at Versailles is large and splendid; in
front are several statues of leading men and
generals, and in the centre a monument of
Louis XIV on horseback, who, it is said,
"marched up the hill and down again." In
the back part of the Palace there are seventy
acres of ground beautifully laid out in flower
gardens. There are several large fountains,
ore above the other, where the water can be
let out and illuminated; the grounds are laid
out with avenues, shaded with large trees
whose tops touch and form a continuous cov
ering; there is a lake in the centre, covering
several acres, supplied with pleasure boats of
different kinds. The Trianon, some distance
from the Palace, once a favorite place of the
first. Bonaparte and Josephine, is a beautiful
building. We were taken through all the
apartments, saw the bed room, bedstead, bed
ding and furniture of Josephine. In one of
the rooms is a centre table, thirty feet in cir
cumference, made frombne plank of oak, beau
tifully finished, showing the grain of the wood.
This building has splendid paintings, sculp
tures and ornaments of various kinds,
the most gorgeous style imaginable. We left
in the evening for Paris, about as much fati
gued as men generally get. It is not all pleas
ure traveling on the Continent
This morning, the 10th. Dr. Bell and myself
were left alone, the remainder of Cook's party
having gone home. We called on Monroe &
Co., bankers, received some money on our
letter or credit, then called upon our Minister,
Mr. Washburne, for letters from our friends at
home. We then hired a carriage for the day,
and visited the following places: Novelle
Fountain, Fountian Louvois, Fountain des
Innocence, Fountain Moliere, Place de Con
corde, Place Vendome, (now torn down), Stat
ue of Henry IV, Tower of St. Jacques, Old
Nortre Dame, (which takes down all the Ca
thedrals I have seen), De Madline Church,•St.
Penis, the Pantheon, Luxembourg and gar
dens, and the Palis du Legislatif. In the eve
ning I took the city railroad cars and went
clear around the city, a distance of 30 miles;
this railroad is made inside the walls clear
around, and runs six trains every half hour,
having some 40 stations, and make the round
trip in two hours and a quarter. You have a
beautiful view of that part of the city out side
of the walls as well as the surrounding coun
try, the fortifications, and where the Prus
sians had their armies and positions; also a
good view of the interior part of the city; the
round trip costing only 10 cents. It passes
through several tunnels under the houses, two
of them over half a mile in length, crosses the
river Seine twice. Satisfied with my days'
work, I returned to the hotel at 8 o'clock in
August 11th.—This morning, after making
a few purchases in the city, we resumed our
ordinary business of visiting : we visited the
Tuileries gardens and looed through the
ruins of that once magnificent edifice; also
Place de Invitides. The Russian church, for
its size, is the richest 'and most georgeously
finished I have yet seen. The guide wont suf
fer any one to enter the sanctum-santoruw,
but he opened the door and let us take a peep
in ; it reminded me of the Jewish worship in
the days of Solomon.
The Grand hotel is the finest and largest
one we have seen. It has 700 single bed
rooms, and can accommodate 1,000 persons.
The new Opera building, which has been in
progress of building for the last ten years, is
only finished out side, and will take three
years to finish it inside ; it has already cost
over six million of dollars. It is admitted to
be the largest and finest piece of architecture,
so far as outward appearance, in the universe.
Paris is ahead of any city in the world for
style and finish in architectural work, as well
as in the wealth and beauty of their streets ;
all of the principal Avenues or Boulevards
have very wide and straight streets, and their
pavements are some thirty feet wide, with two
rows of fine shade trees ; the houses are gen
erally built with fine white granite atone, and
the houses and streets have a fine and clean
We left this evening for London, via the
city of Roane and Deippe by rail, to the Bri
tish channel. And from there by New Haven,
we arrived at this place on Saturday evening,
the 12th. We will remain here for a week,
when you again shall hear from me.
