The Congressional Committee appoint
ed to examine into the unprovoked mur
der of three soldiers of the army in South
Carolina, have made a report, from which
it appears that they were on guard, that
two were shot, and the other thrown into
the liver—that the parties who commit
ted the foul deed were formerly rebels —
that fhey were tried by a commission,
sentenced to be hung, hut commuted to
imprisonment in Fort Delaware—and re
leased by order of Judge Hall, a Delaware
copperhead, and are now at large. 11 also
appears that A. 11. Stephens, H. V. John
son, and other Southerners, warmly soli
cited the pardon of these midnight assas
The testimony of (Jenerals Seliolield,
Thomas, Sickles, Baird and Wood was
taken by the committee. They have had,
say the committee, the best opportunity
for obtaining information, both personal
ly, and also through the reports of their
subordinates, and they have been con
stantly on the alert, as the government of
the country has been substantially under
their supervision during the greater por
tion of the time they have had command.
The result of their experience and ob
servation is given in very forcible terms,
and the committee call the attention ot
the House to their testimony, as they be
lieve it can safely be made the basis of
legislation. It would have been easy to
have fortified their statement by statistics
from the Freetlmen's Bureau, hut as the
House is already in possession of the val
uable information to he obtained from the
same, it was not deemed worth while to
duplicate it. The testimony of those well
known witnesses exhibits the following
First, That for the punishment of crime
in these departments the courts cannot he
relied upon. In eases where soldiers,
1 uion men or fixebineu are concerned
justice is practically denied, and offenses
of grave character against them go un
punished, neither magistrate or juries le
--ing disposed to discharge their "duties in
this respect.
Second. That up to this time there has
been no change lor the better, but rather
for the worse.
Third, i'lutt uu less substantia) justice is
done to the laboring classes hereafter, and
tx> the I nion men and Northern men who
desire to go there to engage in business
enterprises, no improvement in the state
ot affairs can reasonably be expected.
rSo much for one case out of dozens in I

A half sheet Extra accompanies to- j

fitT-The general jury bill, which has i
we believe passed both Houses, provides
for the election of two Jury Commission
ers in tacit county in the State, whose du
ty it shall be to meet at the county seat
thirty days before each term of Court, in
order to draw jurors for such term. These
Jury Commissioners are to be chosen at
the election next fall, each qualified voter
casting a ballot for one person for the of
fice, and the two receiving the highest
number of votes to IK* elected. They arc
to serve three years, and be paid out of
the county treasury at the same rate per
day as County Commissioners are paid in
the same county.

GOV. Geary is putting a stop to the
practice of the legislature of passing bills
which the constitution has placed in the

all such acts passed by the legislature are
null and void.

House, gives each three year or during the
war soldier 58.38 per month, so that many

will also pass it, whether the copperheads

The tenure of oft'ce bill, which
will prevent an officeholder from being
kicked in an out at the pleasure of politi

necessity may be inferred from the fact
that by the official report more than 12tR)

causes, or in other words no cause at all.
The decision of the Supreme Court
of the United States in the ease of the

public men had been more soundly Hog
ged when they were school boys* they
would probably have been better men,—
The Springfield Republican happily re
torts: "It t lie present race of Southern
leaders had been flogged at all in their
boyhood, instead of amusing themselves
by Hogging young darkies, we should not
have been under the painful necessity of
Hogging them in their old age, and we
fear the job is not yet half done."
Terrible Ac i'lent. —A terrible and prob

on Jan. 30th. Mr. Reamer, the foreman
of the wood and straw department, was
accidentally caught in the main shaft, and
his body twisted around it six times. So
great was the velocity of the shafttlßtt the
hoots and socks were hurled from the un
fortunate man's feet, and his clothing
completely torn from his body, with the
exception of a small piece o'f his shirt
sleeve. His recovery isextremelv doubt
Flood a< Jo/nutoim. —The ice in the
btouy creek and ('onemaugh broke up on
the night of t lie 14th iust., and gorged be
low Johnstown, holding the water back
ami submerging the lower part of town
In some of the streets the water was sev
eral feet deep. Communication with the
railroad station was cut oil; and for a time
it was feared that the whole town would
be drowned out." At midnight the
gorge gave way, and the only material
damage done was the tilling of hundreds
ot cellars with water, the breaking of a
number of fences, and the piling of ice
along the river banks and in the streets.
feaT The copperhead and patent demo
cratic press has been making much ado
about the legislature forbidding transpor
tation companies from making distinc
tions in passengers. No law ever has ex
isted in this .State making any distinction
and excepting a few white-skin-nigger
principle passenger railways in lMiiladel
plua, no railway, stage line, or other eon
\e\ance, rejected passengers on account
of color Ihe brutal and inhuman con
