Towanda, Thursday, November 16,1865.
AN e present herewith the latest returns
ol the State elections held on Tuesday, the
7th inst. Everywhere in the North the j
I-nion party* has been victorious, wiping j
out at one huge swoop the Copperhead l>e- 1
j mocraey. In New York, win re the leaders
! ol the Democracy framed a platform on Re
i public in principles, aud where a brave aud ,
great soldier headed the ticket, tin result '
has been overwhelming disaster to the new
Democracy. In New Jersey, where the
brave Kilpatrick led the Union hosts, the
victory was no less decisive. The loss of
; New Jersey is a bitter pill for the Copper
-1 head Democracy. It was the only tree
State that cast its vote for MeClellan in
i 1804, and herculean efforts were made to
keep the Jerseyites in the Democratic faith.
All was useless, however, and Jjy a deci
sive majority New Jersey lias now taken
' her stand among the truly I oval States of
I , *
, the Fnion.
The only place where the Copperheads
/ have had any show is in States lately in
1 rebellion. Here the Copperhead element
l j was the strongest, and of'course succeeded.
But i ven thcse'suceesses cannot revive the
> drooping spirits of the "forlorn Democracy."
' The leaders feel and know that the party
is so dead that no political trump will ever
j ! sound its resurrection.
The following is the result in the States:
Gen. Barlow has been elected Secretary
of State, by a majority numbering from
. twenty to twenty-five thousand ; the bal
, auce of the ticket will have several tbous
i and more, as Gen. Slocnin run ahead of his
F ' ticket. The State Legislature will prob
ably stand us follows :

i tliis event or not is not stated. Mr. Colla

of a Revolutionary parentage. He was
early removed to Burlington, Vermont, and
was graduated in the University of that
State in 1810. He studied law ut St, Al
. bans, and was there admitted to practice
1 in 1812. He served as lieutenant of artil
lery in the war against England in that
1 year, along the frontier. He then finished
his preliminary and professional studies
without aid, and practiced law in several
parts of the State up to ls3s. He was
I elected to the General Assembly ; made
1 an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court
ot the State, which lu poid until 1842; was
chosen to Congress in 1843, '44 and '4O. but
declined in '4-. I'resident Taylor made
him Postmaster Genera! in 1840. In 1850
was elected Judge of the Supremo Court,
and re-elected to I s .> 4, when he was chosen
j U. S. Senator.
f The execution by hanging of Henry Wirz,
, keeper of the Andersonville rebel prison
pen, for inhuman treatment, resulting in
numberless deaths, of the captives in his
i charge, took place a little after eleven
; o'clock Friday forenoon, in the yard of the
i Old Capitol Prison, in Washington, all ef-
I forts of his counsel for executive clemency j
having proved unavailing. A strong mili-'
I tary guard surrounded the scaffold, Hiid i
besides the soldiers there were several liun- j
dred civilians m the enclosure as witnesses
of the solemn spectacle. The prisoner was
I aocumpaiiied from his cell to the platform,
i in addition to the military officer*, by the r
Rev. Fathers Boyle and Wigget, of the
Catholic Church, from the former of whom, j
j before leaving the prison, he received the
j sacrament. The War Department order,
j founded on the finding and sentence of the i
; court martial in Wire's case, with the i'res
j idont's order approving the same and fix- j
ing the time of execution, were road ; and
in this and other necessary ceremonies j
about three quarters of an hour passed |
from the time the condemned appeared un
der the gallows till the fatal stroke and
! drop left him suspended between heaven |
and earth. On the scaffold Wire convers
ed with those near him, was apparently
self possessed, and continued to assert his
The fact has just been made public that
some weeks ago, during the visit of Wire's
wife to Washington, an attempt was made
Iby her to forestall the sentence of the
court in her husband's case b}- poisoning
him. When kissing him at parting in the
cell alter one of their interviews she man
aged to convey from her own month into
| his a little ball of strychnine, covered with
! coatings of oiled silk and licorice. Colonel
Baker, who was present and noticed the
I suspicious proceeding, sprang forward,and,
by seizing Wirz by the throat, compelled
him to spit out the article. An examina

With feelings of the most profound grati

people of the Commonwealth to meet in
their places of public worship, ox THURSDAY,

enabled to crush to earth the late wicked
rebellion and to exterminate the system of

brothers and sous were staking life and

The Secretary of State telegraphs
to Gov. Ferry of South Carolina that he is
- to continue to exercise the duties of I'rovis
t ional Governor until relieved by special

also cxpres-es the regret of the President
that neither the Convention nor the Legis

and the reply of the President to the North

clearly that there is to be no hurry in ad

their old relations to the Union, and that

, Nortlieriin men are investing largely in
\ irginiu lands, especially in the country
between Washington and Richmond, which
has been devastated during four years by
contending armies. Valuable farms, where
an outlay of cash tor fences and buildings
is needed, are disposed of by their former
owners at very low figures. Any man
with national currency at bis command can :
provide himself with a homestead in the
Old Dominion quite as cheap as the same
would Cost in the far west. At .Manassas
Junction sixteen new buildings are in pro
cess of erection, a pretentions hotel among
them. The majority of the new settlers in
the Bull Run neighborhood arc enterprising

"W here the emancipated slaves have abate ,

The recent reports about the trial of Jeff", j ,
Davis, tending to create the belief that he ■ '
was not to be tried at all, have, as we have ,
heretofore maintained, no.'foundation what- (
ever. The cause of the delay was private- t
ly understood, and its removal being prob- j
able at an early day, we have not deemed ,
it advisable to print the technical matters j
of difference which existed between the ; i
President and Chief-Justice- CHASE, but er- >
i roneous statements having become public '
i it is proper that the facts, as they exist. !
i should be known. The following statement,
from this evening's A'y iuljii<an we know to
proceed from the best authority and to be
entirely correct. It fully explains the de- 1
lay in regard to the long expected trial :
j. For months President JOHNSON has ex-i
! pressed the greatest anxiety to bring to a '
legal issue the question whether treason is
a crime and whether it can be punished as
such. lie has not only consulted his cons-'
titutional advisers, his Cabinet, and the
proper law officers of the government on I
; the subject, but he has also invited to his
j counsel some of the most eminent eonsti
i tutional and criminal lawyers in the laud.
Among these may be properly mentioned ,
the name of Chief-Justice CHASE, who came
here from Ohio some tiuic in August last,
at the special invitation of the President,
to consult on the general subject of trials .
; for treason. Subsequently, about the Ist
! of October last, President JOHNSON address
ed a letter to Chief-Justice CHASE, inform
ing him that it might become necessary for !
I the Government to prosecute some high i
i crimes and misdemeanors committed against i
! the United States within the District of'
: Virginia, Chief-Justice CHASE'S circuit, and ;
| inquiring whether the Circuit Court of the I
j United States for that district is so far or-1
! ganized and in condition to execute its !
functions, that the Chief-Justice, or either
of the Associate .Justices of the Supreme •
! Court, would hold a term of the Cjrcuit
Court there during the Autumn or early j
Winter for the trial of causes.
About the middle of October, Chiel-Jns
tice CHASE replied to the President's letter,
j lie positively stated that his Circuit Court
j for the District of Virginia, either to be
| presided over by himself or one of his as
i soeiates, would not hold a term " during
the Autumn or early Winter." He stated
| that the regular term authorized by Con-j
| gross would commence this year on the .
27tli of November, the present month, only j
; one week before the autiual term of the Su
preme Court, when all the Judges are re
quired to be present, allowing but one!
week for the Circuit Court to sit, which, in
i the opinion of the chief-Justice, would be
too short a term for the transaction of any '
.! very important business. But the Chief- ;
Justice adds that, were the facts otherwise, j
; he so much doubts the propriety of holding
Circuit Courts of the tinted States in States '
which have been declared by the executive
| and legislative departments of the Nation- !
al Government to be in rebellion, and, there
fore, subjected to martial law, before the
1 complete restoration of their broken rela-!
ti >ns with the nation, and the siipcrsedurc
of the military by the civil administration,
that he would Vie unwilling to hold such
. j courts in such States, within his circuit,
, which includes Virginia, "until Congress
. shall have had an opportunity to consider
, and act on the whole subject." The Cliief
[ Justice expressed to the President the opin
ion that a civil court in a district under
| martial law can only act by the sanction;
L ' and under the supervision of the military
. power: and he positively asserts that he
