How to MA. Copperhoects.
Clearfield, east, twelve miles from the line,
when James Collins and Patrick Gorman
came to me and said they wanted to go to
Center county for ten days, saying their ob
ject was to carry the election ; they said it
was a Republican hole, and they intended
running in enough votes to carry it ; I took
the men to Center county ; Col. Skelly's
gang also went ; the men east of me wont ;
in and around Philipsburg there were about
100 men the day of election; they were quar
tered at Mr. Keplar's, Mr. Gray's, Mr. Ear-
Xis's, and Mr. Donehne's ; I was in Philips
, burg all day, Most of the4ime at the polls ;
the polls are in the same building; I gave
two men tickets ; Sheriff Perks and Mr. Lede
distributed tickets ; Lede was a walking boss
on the road ; I saw them giving the men the
•tickets ; Sheriff Perks borrowed a sheet of
tickets from me to have others printed; the
tickets were all Democratic; about all that
were on the ground voted ; all had natural
ization papers ; obtained them, as was said,
in Luzerne county ; this one- on the table is
similar to t.h6Bl4l3l . Elitiy were colored ;
the men said they obtiairleal or arranged for
the papers two miles out of Clearfield, on
Saturday evening before the election iu a
shanty kept by Mrs. Lynch ; they said two
lawyers came from Philadelphia, and after
they were sworn Lede took possession of the
papers, and that he colored them with coffee ;
the day of the election the men were handed
the papers ; Mr. Lede at the same time fur
nished the tax receipt [a receipt shown wit
ness, and Identified as similar to those used; ]
I did nothing while in. Philipsburg ; I did not
vote ; I saw all vote that I named; I had no
Republican tickets.
Cross-examined—l never agreed to vote
my men on the Republican side; never said
for $101) I would dcf so, I received money the
day before and day after ; of Mr. Crisman
$23,0f Mr. Johnson, day after $6O, of Sheriff
Pers $l2 ; I received of Rev. Father tracy
$5OO. • ' • The $5OO was given me two
weeks ago last Tuesday to prevent my being •
a witness. • • • The priest came and told me
that my evidence would he hard against the
Democratic party, and that he had $5OO he
would give me--if weeld leave. • • • I
told the priest that I would take my family
and go for $2000; Father Tracy told me he
would let me know in a few days, and when
we next met the priest told me that he bad
written for advice, and that Wallace thought
that $lOO per month was enough ; I supposed
it was Wallace, tye clearfleld county lawyer;
told the priest I wouti take $5OO. • • • The
men votecein borough and . tobvnship ; Michael
Fallon and one other were in the country but
a short time ; the men told me that Lede
took the lawyers to Tyrone; the men went
back to Clearfield county. after the election,
where they lived in shanties ' but fifty or
sixty rods of the road is in Center county ;
all the voters were challenged at the polls.
John Casey, sworn—l was working ou the
railroad for Mr. Collins at the October (1867)
election; was boarding in Phillpaburg, where
I voted with the other men ; Mr, Lede took
me up to vote and gave me the naturaliza
tion paper, and I put it in ; cannot read ;
am as ignorant as a haste; I put the paper
in my pocket ; cannot tell what became of
it ; I was never naturalized ; never was in
a court before this ; Lede told me to vote ;
I was working near Mr. Collie's store ; came
the day, that O'Meara did to Philipsburg ; I
voted Democratic.
[Note.—This witness on bill return to Clearfield
county, was waylift awl boles with clubs, so that
he died from hisyrnumls. The Governor Issued his
proclamathiri, eredng a terralsreoe the detection of
the, murderers.]
Rev. Thonws Tracy, sworn—l paid Michael
O'Meara five hundred dollars a short time be
fore this case commenced; I gave him the
money in his gown house in the evening, about
a week or two before the assembling of the
tWaLure; he was lo leave the State and re
-4 out three months fox the flee hundred
dollars; Mr. Gotman, boss of Collins, gave me
t~hee,wowey to give him; the man who gave me
"he money *as the only one, who had any
I lblowledge of the transartkm, M far as I know ;
I had a correspondence with Mr. Wallace on
the s/ttlieetpt O'Meara's leaving the State ; the
onlystipulation was that he should remain
ittfay'three months; I understood that it was•
for binifto be gone until after the trial.

Nigger in the Democratic Wood-
In our toy shops is to be found a box,
all quiet and fair to sight, and which
seems innocent of any alarming contents.
And yet by touching a little wire secured
at the bottom, up springs a nigger, to the
great alarm of the unsuspecting juvenile
In a political sense, the Democratic
party has become a huge box of this de
scription, and the men at the wires are
beginning to pop up the nigger, by way
of familiarizing their gaping followers
with his heretofore abhorred features.
First, the editor of the New York World
let Sambo out of the box, with a two
hundred and fifty dollar property qualifi
cation pinned to his political status.
Then the Southern Copperheads, at the
late election, lifted the ' ignorant cuss"
clear from the box, and placed him square
on the Densoc,atie platform as a " conser
vative gentleman of the old school !" And
now Tom Florence, for ten years Demo
cratic Congressman from Philadelphia,
and at present editor of the Constitutional
Union at Washington, claims the Ameri
can citizen of African descent as a man
and a brother, and demands for him a
vote, with no other qualification than his
Now our readers will recollect that
when this question was first generally
broached, and began to assume formid
able political proportions, we predicted
that the day was rapidly arriving in which
the Democratic party would make extrav
agant bids for the negro vote. And lo !
that day is now dawning. The old Cop
perhead war cry of, " Do you want a nig
ger to marry your daughter ?" has almost
ceased to terrify the unterrilled at Demo
cratic meetings, and wool has " riz" in
the Democratic market.
Come in Sambo, come in soon,
While we make a fire iu the front room!"
will soon be the burden of all the Cop
perhead campaign songs of the country.
The venerable Rabbi Naar will pitch
the tune upon his Jewsharp, and Major
Wilson will cease et bounding the con
stitution while he takes a drink from the
same bottle with the redeemed progeny
of Ham. Chauncey Burr and Wendell
Phillips will lie down together, and a lit
tle nigger shall lead them !
0, what a convenient thing is Demo
cracy ! The leopard cannot change his
spots, but thanks to Democracy, the Cop
perhead can change his skin !
Come politicians in distress,
This white and nigger wedding bless :
Democracy proclaims the bands,
As necessary to her plans.
To the bar and take a *gar,"
With each Democratic nimar.
Hail to freedom's second dawn,
John Brown's soul is marching on!
Sambo is a man and brother,
Just the same as any other.
