jkadfowl Reporter, i
Towanda, Thursday, November 30,1865.
The following remarks which we find in
Ifar/itr's WWkl;/, so exactly meet our !
views upon the subject of negro suffrage
tliat we transfer them to our columns :
"The suffrage question has many as
pects. It is both denied and asserted
with equal vehemence that political rights
are natural rights ; but every American at
least must be very wary how he commits
himself to the negative of the proposition. ■
If governments justly exist by the consent
of the governed, it is rather difficult to
show that there is no higher claim to a
share in political power than the consent
of those who already enjoy it. That it may j
be withheld is very possible. That ii can j
be justly witheld is not evident.
But in the discussion of impartial suff
rage in the late rebel States we may de- i
scend from the heights of abstract right, i
and regard the point as purely one of ex- j
pedieney. It is asked, and fairly enough, !
whether in the condition of public opinion j
in tiie loyal States, as shown in the Con
necticut refusal of impartial suffrage ; in j
the defeat of the same proposition in Wis
consin by a majority of ten thousand in the
popular vote, while the Union ticket was
elected by eight thousand ; and in the dis
abling suff rage laws of many of the other
i States, it is advisable to insist upon impar
tial suffrage in the States which are to be
recognized. We say this question is fair
and natural enough, but the subject must
be regarded from the point of view of the
national welfare.
Thus, in a State like Connecticut, which
' is indisputably faithful to the Government,
it is not directly essential to the national
safety that the two thousand colored men
! should lie allowed to vote. It is a pitiful
i disgrace to the State ; but it is not essen
tial to the nation, because the non-voters
are so few, and because the political power
remains steadily in patriotic hands. So,
I also in Wisconsin and other Western States.
But in Georgia or Mississippi the consider
ations are very different. In those States
, the question of impartial suffrage involves
directly the national welfare. The point of
inquiry is, whether if political power be in
trusted exclusively to the late rebels with
their present disposition, the State will
maintain that intimate and hearty relation
with the National Government which is in
dispensible, and whether the dangers of
impartial suffrage there are not very much
more than balanced by those of partial
i suff rage?
It is not a question for passion or rhetor
ic, bnt for the calmest and most thorough
This ijucstion, it has, always appeared to
us, was one to be treated in the light of
policy, and with regard to the future wel
fare and safety of the country. If the ex
ercise of the right of suffrage by the Freed
men will insure us from the danger of fu
ture rebellions, and will tend to secure the
negro in those rights which belong to him,
in his new relatious, should there he any
hesitation in conferring that light upon
him ?
Mr. Humphreys, Governor elect of
Mississippi, has sent a message to the Leg
islature, recommending, as of vital impor
tance, and as a means of relieving the
State of the national troops, the passage of
laws admitting negro testimony in the
courts, affording the IVeedmen protection
iu their rights, giving them encourage
ment in industry, rendering them assistance
in the education of their children and tax
ing them for the support of the vagrants
and helpless among them. The Legisla
ture, according to telegraphic dispatches
heretofore published, has already conceded
tiie right to the negroes of testifying in all
cases in which one of their number is in
fisjf In the United States Circuit Court
in Baltimore, Md., on the 22d inst., Justice
Chase presiding, in an action brought
against the Northern Central Railfoad
Company by a British subject, the company
claiming the right to retain 5 per cent of
its interest coupons to pay the income tax,
and three mills on the dollar under a law
of Fennsylvania, the court decided that
the company mast pay the tax, and that
the coupons must he paid without any de
duction therefor.
m~ An attc mpt to defraud the Govern
ment by the abstraction of papers in the
cases of deceased and discharged soldiers,
has just been brong'o to light in Washing
ton. The Second Auditor states that, had
the fraud been undiscovered for a few
months, the Uovernnient would have been

guilty parties. Win. Rabe, a claim agent,
Berthold Dressen, a clerk in the Second
Auditor's office, and Marman Gossman,
have been arrested.
Additional correspondence has taken
place between Minister Adams and Karl
Russell in regard to the depredations of
the. Rebel cruisers fitted out in England.
Earl Russell repeats the argument that En

Full particulars of the negro revolt in
the island of Jamaica are furnished by res
ident correspondents of the New York
Herald. The facts elicited show that the
massacre was the result of a deliberate,
plot for assassinating the white population, '
and putting the negroes in possession of;
the island. The following are the particu
lars :
The 2Vttli of October was fixed for the ,
rising; but the arrest of some of the con- \
spirators on other charges precipitated the
outbreak several days. At the bottom of
the conspiracy was George Williams Gor
don, ex-magistrate and members of the ,
Colonial Assembly, aud it would seem
(though 011 this point the colonial papers
make no definite statement), a white man.
The active leader was Paul Bogle, a negro
preacher, and it is significant that most of :
the rebels were in some way connected
with negro ''religious" associations. Bogle, j
Gordon and the other principal rebels have
been arrested and hanged. General La
-1 mo the, ex-President of the Haytien Repub
lic, implicated in the rising, has been ar
rested on board a schooner, in which he
was trying to escape from the island.
At the date of last advices the revolt
was nearly suppressed, though frightful
I stories continued to be told of the negro
atrocities, and one road eight miles long
was said to be almost impassable from the j
j collection of dead bodies. The insurgents j
' do not seem to have attempted the destine-1
1 tion of the property on the island. Their
aim was to assassinate the whites and then
1 enter into possession of their property.
Over one thousand of the rebels have
! been hanged and shot in the parish of St
Thomas up to the time the steamer left ;
' and it is not at all unlikely that ere the 1
different Courts Martial close their settings, \
| there will be far over two thousand who
| will have paid the penalty of their vile at
tempt to exterminate the white and colored '
races of this island.
Bom ROKBKKY. —On Sunday night last
one of the boldest and most daring robber
ies ever known was perpetrated at. llain
uiel's Hotel in this Borough. A peddler of
Furs,uaoied Backer, who had been stopping
at that hotel for a few days, retired to bed j
as usual, taking the precaution to place
his pants containing over live hunched dol- |
lars in money, and a gold watch valued at
two hundred dollars, under his pillow.— ,
When sound asleep the room was in some i
manner entered by two burglars who ad
ministered chloroform to him (it is suppos- |
ed,) and took the pants from under the pii-1
low. j
Two men, named John Caiu and Felix ,
Kenyon, had been prowling adout here ev- |
I er since the arrival of the peddler, having
: followed him from Binghamton ; and the i
peddler had become suspicious of them,
thinking they had designs upon his valua- j
hies. Consequently he had, as he suppos
ed, taken every necessary precaution to
foil any attempt of the rascally villains,
Mr. Louis Hauiiiiel, proprietor of the ho- j
tel, had kept some watch ol the villains j
also, and in the morning they wet • arrest
ed. Alter a sic :t healing before Eeq. Cur
tis they were committed to the county jail
to await then trial, and coustable Love
lace deputed to take them to Montrose
forthwith. They were accordingly hand
culled and placed in a two horse carriage i
with three or four lady passengers wtio
were go\ng to attend Court, and when all i
was ready the singular load started on its |
winding way to the county seat of moun- j
tainous Susquehanna. Everything went i
smooth as a wedding until the weary load i
came to a hill a strip of woods on the otli-1
er side of New Milford. Just then the two j
passengers of the male persuasion thought j
they would relieve the horses of some of j
the weight they had to carry ; so one jump-!
Ed out ou one side and the other on the op-!
posite, and then some of the tallest walk-1
iug took place that has been witnessed i
around these parts lately. Constable Love- j
lace not being so lleet on loot as they, did
not succeed in overtaking them.
Suffice it to say, the birds have tied, and
neither they nor the money and watch have i
as yet been heard from. This whole pro
ceeding will, we trust, go far toward mak
ing peddlers, constables and other people
still more careful. -Northern I'ennxijlvanian. \
ciioNS. —A gentleman called in our office on J
Saturday last, aud exhibited several spec- j
i mens of pure gold found upon Deep Run,'
Duukard township, Green county, Fa., and ,
assayed at the Fnited States Mint. This J
ore was fouud at the depth of nearly seven
hundred feet, and we were shown numer
ous affidavits which were given by the
men employed at the works, establishing !
the fact that the ore was brought up in the
sand-pump of the Amber Oil Well. From
the certificates shown us of the Assayer of!
the Philadelphia Mint, we learn that the
ore is a sulphurct of iron and lead in quart/.,
with visible gold, which appears upon .
hasty or careless examination so much like
the pyrites as to be mistaken on overlooked.
It was assayed in three different parcels ol
various weights, from fourteen grains to
three pennyweights, apd by three standard ,
methods, either of which gives au accurate
result of its richness. These results show
much irregularity as to the aiqount ol the
precious metal, but in any case a very ex
traordinary richness of tfje ore is illustra- >
ted. The result is given in avordupois <
pound weight of the ore, and it should be
stated that the silver returned as present as J
a natural alloy of the gold, making it some-,
what pale, and the fineness of the precious
metal is from 7'J9 to 81fl, or about lit} car
ats. l'he richest specimen assayed yielded
in pure gold $87,0, and in silver $3, or
sBB,I'O per pound, which will make $177,-
800 per ton We learu that a shaft is im
mediately to be sunk to the level of the
gold vein, and that capitalists have already
subscribed all the funds necessary to*
thoroughly develope the lead.— Pittdutrg
PARDONS. —Applications fur pardon are
i still coming in at the Attorney General's
1 office, though not in such numbers as lias
i hitherto been trie case. Until recently they |
have averaged twelve hundred per week,'
but now will not exceed six hundred. About
four hundred per week are acted upon and
the requisition forwarded to the State De
partment, from' whence they are sent to the
President in small parcels, thus resulting
i in an accumulation of warrants in the office
;of the Secretary of State, the President •
i having no time to devote to them at pres
ent. The greatest number of applications
are now coining in from North Carolina,
I Virginia and Arkansas. One hundred pe
! tit ions were presented yesterday by the
I Secretary of Statu of Texas. It is under
stood that the diminution of applicants for j
. pardon is owing to the prevailing idea in
| the south that Congress will grant a gener
; al amnesty, a result highly problematical.
| There are now in the office of the Attorney
i General about one thousand cases, which
i are filed away for further consideration by
the Cabinet. These include rebel generals,
i membets of the confederate Congress, and
i officers of the rebel service who graduated
lat the United States Military and Naval
| Academies. Alabama is considerably
ahead of other States with respect to par
| dons, and will probably have comparative
ly few more petitions to present.— HYP-Vl

i A Raleigh despatch announces that
Provisional Governor llolden has received
instructions from secretary Seward that he
is to continue to exercise executive func
tions in North Carolina until specially re
lieve! by President Johnson, notwitlistand
i ing the fact that another Governor was
; e'ected by the people of that Mate on last
Thursday. It will be remembered that in
the interview which the North Carolina
t delegation had with the President on last
; Friday he informed them that Mr. Hidden
would be so instructed, as have also been
the Provisional Governors of Mississippi,
South Carolina and Florida. Thus it will
; be seen that the President is not disposed
to allow the people of the States lately in
| rebellion to assume unrestricted control of
their affairs until, by complying with the
l terms which he demands, they demonstrate
i their loyalty to tiie government beyond a
doubt and give security to keep the peace
.in future. Their Legislatures must ratify
the slavery prohibition amendment to the
: national constitution.
Bf%„On last Saturday night a burglarious
; attempt was made to enter Meyleft's Bank
iat Scranton. Four men, equipped with
| eight hundred pounds weight of superior
i tools gained an entrance at the side door
and commenced operations on the vault.—
i Mr. Scranton and Mr. Chittenden both have
offices over the Bank. It so happened that
i they had occasion to be out together un-
I commonly late that night. Ou the way
i home Mr. Chittenden stepped into his office,
| leaving Mr. Chittenden outside on the side
walk. The burglars heard Mr. Scranton
overhead. One of tbein came to the side
j door, and seeing Mr. Chittenden, gave the
! alarm. He and his associates fled, leaving
: their whole set of tools behind them. Mr.
j Chittenden did not identify cithei of the
men, and they effectually escaped.

made by a double-acting Bellows is forced into the
: cream, and at the very bottom, setting the cream in a
! great commotion. At the same time the air brings tiie
| cream to the same temperature of heat and cold as in
| the place where the Churn is worked, the butter being
! made by currents and counter currents of air, causing a
1 friction by the currents against pach other, removing
i the covering withont bursting the globule-. eoti-equent
|ly the grain of the but ter is perfect. In makes liult, i
j in half the lime of an ordinary Churn , a tar better, and
I a larger per cent, of butter than any other Churn in use.
i A trial is all that is simple in its construction, not in
( any way likely to get out of order, and the same jar-
I used for cream are used to make the butter in, saving
j all trouble and time spent in keepings wooden Churn
i clean,
1 add no certificates, but can get them wherever the
1 Chum is worked. All are governed by their interests,
j and for that reason tbis Churu will take the place of !1
j others wherever introduced.
