LABOR CONTRACTS AT THE SOUTH
We fear that what is called the contract
system of labor at the south has been con
verted in very many cases into a means
of substituting peonage tor chattel slavery.
By the terms of most of the contracts the
negroes agreed to work for a year, and re
ceive besides their maintenance a certain
portion of the crop. At the end of the
season the negro finds himself defrauded
of his share of the crop by some means,
and has no redress. Often the planter pre
tends to be dissatisfied with the negro be
foie the end of the year, and sends him off
to avoid fulfilling the contract. It is true
that the agents of the Freedmeu's Bureau
have industriously tried to remedy this state
of things, but their success has been in
different, mainly owing to the known lies-,
tility of President Johnson to the Bureau,
and the support given by him to the local
organizations in defying its operations.
In some cases the negroes may be con
tent to go on working in this "hand to
mouth" sort of style. But in the great ma
jority of cases they will nut, and this is
what prevents the recuperation of southern
agriculture. It seems to be well establish
ed that in Louisiana, Texas, Kentucky, and
other States, gangs of armed desperadoes,
known as "Regulators," have- been endeav
oring to establish a reign of terror among
the negroes, by going abont at night,mask
ed and disguised, and whipping or killing
refractory blacks. When we ask a remedy
for these things, the reply is the same as
in the matter of the Kansas and New Or
leans massacres—a denial of their authen
ticity. There is however, no reason todoubt
the reports, all of which come from agents
of the Bureau, and are attested in such a
manner as to render very suspicious the
broad denials of the southerners, and to in
duce us to believe that there is a want of
sincerity in the manner in which the south
ern people deal with the subject.
We may as well warn these people now,
| at the beginning of this attempt, that thej
could do nothing better calculated to bring
upon them the inveterate hatred and stern,
determined opposition of the free north,
! than to resort to such a system of labor as
peonage. To say that we would oppose it
would but inadequately convey to them an
idea of what is the spirit of the north. It
would be truer to say at once that we will
not tolerate this substitute for slavery. We
i have conquered slavery with rebellion, and
! we mean that both shall stay conquered.—
I We are prepared to maintain to the utter
| most the freedom and the equal rights of
! the emancipated slaves, and if we have to
j undertake another struggle with the oligar
chs, the latter had better not, calculate too
much upon the terms we may again offer
| them. We consider their present conduct
! little short of infamous.

UNION STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE ROOMS
No. 1105 CHESTNUT STREET. PHILADELPHIA,

I congratulate the people of the State upon
the grand results of the recent political
contest. We have elected our candidate
for Governor by a large majority We
have indorsed the Constitutional Amend
ments proposed by Congress. We have se
cured about two-thirds of both branches of
the Legislature. We have elected eight
een out of the twenty-four members of Con
gress, a gaiu yf two over our present dele
gation. These are the substantial results
of our complete and magnificent victory ; a
victory achieved by the patriotic efforts ol
a loyal people, in defiance of the basest be
trayal on record, and in spite of the most
reckless abuse of Government patronage
ever encountered by any party ; a triumph
of right over wrong, and fairly won, in as
desperate struggle,and against as unscrup
ulous means as were ever resorted to by
any adversary. Thanks to the Giver of all
victories. Thanks to all our co-laborers,
especially to my able, devoted and efficient
secretaries, who toiled with me most faith
fully for four months without fee or re
ward. Thanks to the other members of the
Committee, and to the various local organ
ization. Thanks to the gallant " Boys in
Blue," who fought and wou another battle
for their country, and to the able and pa
triotic press throughout the State. And
last, but Dot least, many thanks to the
noble Union League and the patriotic lib
erality of our friends in the city of Phila
By order of the Committee.

THE TERRIBLE FRAUDS IN THE LUZERNE DIS
TRICT.—Iu studying the returns of the late
election, two facts forcibly impress the in
telligent observer--that wherever the offi
cial patronage—as iu our navy-yard wards
—or the prejudices of the adopted citizens
—as in the counties of Schuylkill and Lu
zerne—could be used and Joperated upon,
there the Copperhead majorities increased.
But for the corruptions and intrigues grow
ing out of these two elements, the Union
majority in Penvsylvania, to-day, would he
nearer one hundred thousand than fifteen
thousand. Great surprise has been mani
fested at the enormous majority thrown in
the county of Luzerne against General
GEARY. Why and how this was done, let
the Scranton Republican of the 12th inst.
We are glad to perceive that Mr. ARCH
IIAI.D, the Union candidate for Congress,has
resolved to, contest the election, in which
case we have no doubt that the House of
Representatives will decide in his favor,
and thus oust the Copperhead DE.\isoN,who
allowed his patriotism to resort to such
outrageous frauds for the purpose of cheat
ing an intelligent people out of their
rights,— Philadelphia Press

DEATH OF THE HON- JOHN VAN BUBEN.
John Van Bnreu, of New York, died on
board the steams ip Scotia, on Monday,
October 15, on his return from Europe,
wiiere he bad-been for his health,and while
within a few hours of port, lie was the
son of President Martin Van Buren, and
was born at Hudson, February 18, 1810 ;
graduated from Yale in 1828 ; read law
with Hon. B. F. Butler, of Albany ; was
Secretary of Legation to his father while
the latter was Minister to England.in 1831-2,
-and was chosen Attorney General lor the
State of New York in 1845. Then he re
tired to the practice of his profession. In
1818 he was one of the prominent adv >-
cates of the Free Soil party, and from that
time to this has been before the i nbiic as a
speaker upon the questions of the day. Tie
was one who believed firmly in ti.t middle
path, and his conservatism was ho
that it causod him to halt when persistency
would have been victory. He - a most
genial and agreeable companion—well-read, i
tpiick in repartee, never vindictive, and j
finding some witty apology for the -■ orst :
defeats. His position in his profession was
deservedly high, and on the stump or in a !
lecture room he had a singular power of i
chaining attention. Something like an ap
parent lack of sincerity prevented him 1
from gaining the full success to which his
qualifications entitled him. '
A TEERIBLE EXPLOSION.
ST. LOUIS, Oct. 17, 1860.
A terrible boiler explosion occurred at
ten o'clock to-day, in the turning-shop of
J. 11. Babcock, on Franklin avenue, totally
demolishing the shop and also a three-story
brick building on West street.
Twenty-two persons are known to be
buried in the ruins ; eight, when taken out
were dead, and twelve more or less injur
ed. Two, and perhaps more, are still bur
ied in the debris. The ruins immediately
took fire, and a large force is now engagt d
in extinguishing the flames and removing
LATER. —Six more dead bodies have been
taken lrom the ruins of the turning shop
this evening. It is now thought others still
remain buried in the debris. Some of fin
bodies are so badly burned that they can
i not be identified.
j The cause of the explosion to-day was
| the weakness of the boiler, of which the
' proprietors are said to have been notified
by their engineer some days since. The
coroner will investigate the whole matter
to-morrow. After the explosion the ruins
took fire and burned furiously for some
time, despite the most desperate efforts of
the firemen. Two dwellings adjoining were
consumed. During this time the scene was
appalling. The appeals for aid of helpless
creatures in the ruins, and the frantic cries
of their relatives outside, were heartreml
j ing in the extreme. Up to 9A. M. no more
bodies have been found.
