F. S. Senator.
The caucus of republican members for
nominating a candidate for Senator, as
sembled at Harrisburgon Thursday even
ing. and as is not often the ease the first
ballot decided it, to wit:
Senators Drown (Mercer), Coleman,
Council, Cowles, Graham, Haines, Lan
doii, Dowry, M'Conaughy, Ridgway,
gtutzman, Wortliington aud Hall, Speak
er—V&, voted for Simon Cameron.
Representatives Barton, Drown, Cam
eron, Chadwick, DeJrlaven, Donohugh,
Freelxorn, Giiegan, Harbison, Hoflinan,
Humphrey, Kennedy, Kerns, Kinimell,
Kinney, M'Camant, M'Kee.Mann Marks,
Mecliling, Meily, Seiler, Sharpies, Shu
man, Stumbaugh, Subers, Waddell, Wel
ler. Whann, Woodward, Worrall, Wright
aud Glass, Speaker —3d, voted for Simon
Senators Royer, Taylor and White—3,
voted for Andrew G. Curtin.
Representatives Adaire, Allen, Chase,
Colville, Davis, Day, Espy, Evving, Gal
lagher, Gordon, Lis;, M'Creary, Penny
packer, Peters, Pillow, Quay, Wallace,
Watt, Wharton and Wingard—2o, voted

Representatives Armstrong, Richards,
Routh, Steacy, Stehnian and Wilson —I>,
voted for Thaddeus Stevens.
Senators Browne (Lawrence) and Shoe

Representatives Leech, MePherrin and
Webb—3, voted for G. A. Grow.

Curtin - 23
Stevens - 7
Grow - 5
Cameron's majority overall candidates
Senators Billingfelt and Fisher, both
from Lancaster county, declined to vote,'
as they were instructed for Mr. Stevens.
After the announcement of the vote
Representative Quay, an ardent supporter
of Gov. Curtin, moved that tiie nomina
tion of Gen. Simon Cameron be made
unanimous, and every member in favor
of that question be requested to stand up.
The gentlemen present rose at once to
their feet, and the nomination of Simon
Cameron was made unanimous.
Had another ballot been necessary,
Gen. Cameron probably would have re
ceived at least 60 votes. We were not sur
prised at the result. The injudicious
course pursued towards him by those
friendly to the opposing candidates not
only brought out his warm personal friends
—and of these it is nonsense to say other
wise than he has them by hundreds and
thousands—but induced many others to
take an active part, who, under other cir
cumstances, might have remained neu
tral. Senators and members of the House,
also, long before the day of meeting, and
before some of them had even expressed
any decided partiality, were met with
charges of corruption and bribery in such
a manner as to make it appear that no
man could support Gen. Cameron with
out being bribed, while all others were
held pure and above suspicion ! Such as
persions were not calculated to make
friends among well-meaning men wiio,
with one breath were told they were hon
est and in the next denounced us corrupt,
and they accordingly took decided ground
and then by resolution invited these
knowing gentlemen to come forward with
their testimony and substantiate what
they alleged. Names as witnesses were
handed in on all sides, bat it appeared
when those who knew everything 011 the
street, and in bar-rooms were examined
under oath, not even a shadow of suspi
cion could be proved—in short, as a mem
ber of the committee stated, not even im- ;
prudent conduct could be alleged against j
any candidate.
Andrew Johnson gets some hard hits
from his copperhead friends, but seems to
take them as quietly as a mouse in a trap.
Thus on the Bth January, Johnson was
present at a copperhead banquet at Wash
ington, when Jeremiah Blaeksaid, among
other things, that the Supreme Court
"Needed 110 defense from him. That
Court had decided against the legality of
military commissions, which had con
demned to death three perfectly innocent
men, because no human being up to this
time had shown that they were guilty.—
Liese thrca men were arrested and brought
before a body who were in no manner
Authorized to meddle with these affairs,
Ajid which mockery w*as called a trial.
I'lte f'ourt said in effect, that if the execu
tion of these three men had taken place
it would have been a murder."
After President Lincoln's assassination,
it will be remembered Johnson tried Mrs.
Hurratt and others by military commis
sion ami hung them, thus according to
Jeremiah Black charging Johnson with
murder to his face.
Indian Affairs.
Investigations made by the Committee
011 Indian Affairs, have developed a state
of facts unworthy our own civilization
while dealing with savages. If the red
men commit an excess; if, after lieing
•'heated, persecuted and poisoned by the
wiiites who go among ,them as govern
ment agents or the agents of fur compa
-111 w , the red men turn in anger and
scourge the whites, the whole country is
lilled with indignation against the
Indians. The first objeet of the govern
ment should l>e to secure the protection of
the settlers on our vast territories, to pro
mote friendly relations between the red
mid the white num. The red men have
fertied their most enduring lessons of
uvachery and worst of all whisky drink
ing from the whites.
To make room for the eloquent In
augural Address of Governor Gearv, we
omit a number of miscellaneous articles
as well as advertisements.

If that is all the difference it is proba
bly no counterfeit at all. We lately had
occasion to examine into the genuineness
of a 82 greenback, and out of half a dozen
could not find any two in which what
printers call " register" was alike.

Shooting Affray.— The people of Miles
burg were considerably startled, on Mon
day evening hist, by an affair, which we
hope will not be of frequent occurrence.
Win. Cooke, a young merchant of that
place, was it seems spending the evening
with some female friends, when six of his
neighbors, with faces blackened and oth
erwise disguised, entered the house, and
seized him, with tiie intention it is said,
of du<lking him in the canal. In his at
tempt to free hintseif lie shot three of the
men more or less severely. One who w s
shot in tiie head and neck it was thnugi t
for a time would not recover. Itwillcei
tainly be a sad thing if death should en
sue, and at all events will serve as an in
timation <>t what can be expected by men
who undertake the moral reformation of
their communities, and in furtherance of
their object, resort to illegal and forcible
means. A warrant was issued on Tues
day for their arrest, and it is probable that
some startling developments will be made
011 the trial of the case. The several acts
of Congress, touching the matter of pen
sions, make no provision for their coses.
Still they may find some consolation ui
the thought that their wounds were re
ceived while in the discharge of what
they con wived to he their duty. We arc
free to confess, however, that we don't be
lieve that any other six men of intelli
gence in the county, would have consid
ered like action a duty devolving upon
them. — Bcllejonte Press.
A Serious but Ridiculous Affair. —Dur-
ing an arbitration, held at Smith's hotel
at Krcmer, in this county, a serious yet
very laughable occurrence took pines. A.
C. Simpson and J. C. Ducher, Ksqs., were
the Attorneys, and all jiersons present
probably numbered twenty—men ami wo
men—as witnesses and arbitrators. Soon
after Mr. Simpson had commenced plead
ing, and was engaged in laying down tiie
law, the floor gave way and the whole
party, lawyers, witnesses, arbitrators
men and women—descended in one pile
to the floor below! There were plenty of
bloody noses, skinned shins, etc., but no
one was dangerously hurt. As soon as it
was discovered that no one was danger
ously hurt, they all had a hearty laugh
over their .sudden and ridiculous change
of base. To heighten the picture, each of
our readers will please imagine they see
Bucher and Himpson going down the hole
together with their hair standing straight
lip!—Selinsyrooe Times.
At*'nipt to Burn a Wife. —The Wrights
ville Star of Saturday last says: We learn
that a man, resident a few miles from this
borough, in Lower Windsor township,
for some trivial provocation, on Thursday
of last week, threatened to and actually
did attempt to put his wife in the lire to
burn her. She m ule desperate efforts and
succeeded in tearing loose from his grasp,
thus making her escape. It seems it was
wash-day, and while engaged at that
household duty he charged her with burn
ing a rail, which she denied. An alterca
tion ensued, and lie being a man of vio
lent temper, became so exasperated that
he endeavored to throw her into the lire.
Out of respect for his connexions, we with
hold his name for the present, but should
there benny more such demonstrations of
an evil spirit doubtless his name wdl not
only get into the newspapers, but into pa
pers of a more legal character.
More " Varmintw About." —On Tuesday,
Dee. ii.ith, Mr. J. \V. Powell, of Bradford
township, killed a large catamount, near
Mcßride's. Having discovered the foot
prints of the animal, he followed theni a
short distance, when they suddenly ceas
ed. After looking around a little, he again
found them twenty-seven feet from their
termination, the 44 varmint" having leap
ed that distance for the purpose of catch
ing a rabbit, a portion of which was still
lying on the ground, the approach of her
pursuer having evidently caused her eat
amountship to abandon her hasty repast.
Mr. P. then followed the animal to its
lair, where he succeeded in shooting it. —
C'learfiehi Journal.
Pardoned. —Nicholas Itiley, who kill
ed James It. Crawford, in li. Watson &
Co.'s store, in Gaysport in October 18(55,
and was sentenced to six year's imprison
ment for the crime in the Western Peni
tentiary, has been pardoned by Gov. Cur
tin. The petition for pardon was signed
by nearly all the prominent citizens of
the town. Kiiey is now at home. — Jlol

John L. Gearhart, son of John
Gearhart, of Decatur township, Clearfield
county, while trying to dislodge a fallen
tree, it swung round, knocked him down
ami tell across his body, crushing him to
death Instantly.
S. McDivitt, formerly a resident
of Huntingdon county, has been re-elect
ed Chief Clerk of the Colorado Legisla
ture. G. M. Chilcott, also a former resi
dent of that county, has been elected to
Congress from that Territory.
g&=Dora Frebyerthyzes, who was burn
ed on New Year's night, by her dress
coming 111 contact with a stove in the Va
rieties Theatre, in St. Louis, died 011
1 hursday. She was a ballet girl, aged
eighteen years, and daughter of one of
the original Swiss bell-ringers.
A young man named Andrew Sny
der, whilst engaged at cutting a timber
road, near Grahamton, Clearfield county,
had his feet so badly frozen that, it is
thought amputation of both will become
necessary. For one who had served three
years in the army, and escaped without
serious injury, it seems like a hard fate to
be now thus maimed for life.
t&lk*. We were a good deal amused the
other day iu reading a copperhead edito
rial which took theground that the South
ern people could not work, could raise no
crops, and could not attend to business
until they were restored to Congress.—
That editor must imagine he has got a
tine list of mules and jackasses for sub
SsiC rhe Lock Haven Democrat, here
tofore a firm though rather courteous
sheet, has passed into the hands of J. W.
& W. P. Fury, who seem determined to
make it full of " fury." Their inaugural
declares the war to have been "nothing
but an infamous crusade and a bloody lie
from beginning to end," &e.
feiT'J. A. Barry, of the Ray county
Freeman, one of the copperhead editors
iu the disturbed district of Missouri, lias
published a card acknowledging that his
articles were malicious and false, and that
his representations were made " with a
view to prejudice the fieople against the
law and to induce thieves and bush
whackers to continue resistance to the
civil officers."
VVe are pleased to see that our old
friend Col. John M Bowman, who was
removed from the office of Assistant As
sessor for Johnstown district in Novem
ber last, was re-iiistuteil on the Ist Janua
ry. From our knowledge of Col. Bow
man we have 110 doubt he was one of the
best officers in the State, and as his remo
val was a part of a political sclieineon foot
last fall which signally failed, his resto
ration is but an act of simple justice.
JB-s&r' Tiie trial of John Boyle for the
murder of George Squibb, in the York
county court, resulted in his acquittal.—
There are still two other indictments
iig.inist him —one for the murder of Mrs.
Squibb; the other for the grand-child.
These indictments, unless abandoned
sooner, will he disposed of at the April
court. McGrannigan and Boyle's son,
both of whom were tried for the same of
fence, were acquitted without much cere
-111 my, there having been no evidence
against them which would have justified
a conviction.

The American Artists' Union would add that theso
j premiums "are to be considered only in the light of a
free gift to their patrons, as the Engravings are fur
nished them below their market value, and as the cost
of engravings, after the plates are procured, is very
trifling, they can easily afford to make the distribution
large as it is.
We trust ttiat our numerous friends throughout the
country and Canadas will use their utmost exertion; ■
Bp that if possible, the distribution may Is.-made soon,
and it can be done if they are at alt active. Ladies
have often made excellent club agents for us, and we
solicit their kind efforts, which will not go unreward
ed. Let one or more energetic persons in every town
and village in the country commence as soon as they
see this, ami get upas large a club as possible. By so
doing they will tie the means of introducing elegant
engravings into fannies, and thus aid in cultivating a
taste for the beautiful and refined.
