This State has, as usual, gone for the Aboli
tionists, but by a much smaller majority than
last year. Buckingham is elected Governor over
Seymour by probably 2,500 majority. Last year
it was 9,145. The Abolitionists elect three mem
bers of Congress—henry C._ Deming in the First
district, Augustus Brandagee in the Third, and
John H. Hubbardin the Fourth. The Democrats
elect one member, James E. English, in the Sec
ond district. The Democracy of Connecticut
have made a good fight, under all the circumstan
ces, against the whole power of the administra
tion concentrated against them. They did all
they could, and more we did not expect. '
FRAUDULENT CIIIICICS.—We were shown, a day
or two ago, a twenty-five cent check, purporting
to be drawn on the Farmers' Bank of Reading,
by "J. 11 Morgan & Co." It is a small litho
graph plate, poorly executed, having on the left
end a medallion likeness of Washington ; on the
right hand corner a circle with points containing
the figures " 25 ;" over the circle "Reading, Pa,"
and below it " March let, 1863." The body of
the note reads : "Rimers' Bath of Reading, ray
the bearer twenty-five cents in current funds, and
charge to account of J. D. Morgan .1 Co." The
signature is also lithographed. We need scarcely
any to persons here, at home, that these checks
are a fraud; but it appears by a letter to Dr.
ltluhlenberg, Cashier of the Farmers' Bank, from
the officere of the Bank at Lock Haven, enclosing
one of these worthless shinplasters, that Clinton
county, and the whole section of our State where
the lumbermen are now trading, is flooded with
them, and that thousands of them have been
passed as genuine. We hope the perpetrators of
this fraud may be diecovered and properly pun
ished. We may add, for the information of the
public at large, that no currency checks for the
fractional parts of a dollar, purportin to be
issukd on the Farmers' Bank of It g

HABDBO39II DIVIDEND.—The Directors of the
Franklin Fire Insurance Company of Philadel

of six per cent. and an extra dividend of ten per
Sent., payable on and after the lOth inst.
On Tuesday last, a man named Philip Huber,
a resident of Lancaster county, (near the bor
der of Berks) was arrested in this city by Wm.
V. Lyon, who styles himself h Government De
tective Officer, under a warrant issued from the
United States District Court for the Eastern
District of Pennsylvania, charged with being en
gaged in getting up secret societies of a treas
onable character in this and the adjoining
counties. On Wednesday morning, Messrs..Cra
briel Filbert, Augustus F. 11lig and Ilarrison
Oxenrider, were arrested at Stouchsburg, iu
Marion township, upon a smiler charge, by Dep
uty U. S. Marshals Sharkey and Schuyler, from
Philadelphia. The accused parties were taken
to Philadelptiaoin Wednesday afternoon, in
the cusiody of the officers named, for a hearing
upon ere charges made against. them. The news
of their arrest soon spread through the Western
section of the county, and on Thursday morning,
h, was rumored that Alit. hundred to a thousand
men, said to be meniniiiif these secret organi
zations, were on their way to the city, to effect,
as was alleged, the release of their confederates.
But, as rumor's thousand tongues have been so
busy of late, almost daily, is eireelating idle
and false'reports, little or no credence was at
tached to the story, and few persons took the
trouble to inquire as to its truth. Between 10
and 11 o'clock, however, some two or three hun
dred men, principally front the Heidelbergs and
Spring townships, crossed the Penn street
bridge, and in a sort of procession walked leis
urely and quietly up Penn street to Sixth, and
up Sixth street to the Court House, in front of
which they halted. A crowd of citizens soon
follower:. and in five or ten minutes, several
thousand persons had gathered in Sixth street,
around the Court House, and stood there per
haps for fifteen minutes. During this time, the
men from the country remained quiet. and or
derly, and neither by word or act indicated that
their visit to town was for any riotous or unlaw
ful purpose ; although there was some excited
talk among the townspeople, and a:few were
beard to utter threats of personal violence if
the crowd was not dispersed forthwith. While
this was going on, we accosted several of the
country people, and inquired their object in
coming to town. One replied that they had
I heard Huber was arrested, and came in to see
what was to be done with him, as they supposed
he was in prison in Reading end would have a
hearing here. Another said that they had un
derstood there was to be a meeting in the city in
regard to the arrest, and that they had come to
attend it. Another said that they were informed
that Huber was to be brought before Judge
Woodward on Thursday in the Reading Court
House, for a hearing, and that they would be
wanted as witnesses. This was the eubstance'of
elf the information we obtained; and from it we
inferred that the men had no definite object in
coming to town other than to learn the result of
the investigation in linber's case, which they
supposed would take place. The idea that they
were bent upon any act of lawlessness, or medi
tated any violent resistance to the authorities,
is refuted by their very appearance—being plain
men, evidently just from their ordinary form
work, many of them aged and sonic crippled,
and to all appearance unarmed—and by the
quiet and unoffeneive manner in which they
conducted themselves. The only things like
"arms" that could be seen among the whole
crowd, were two • or three !Sticks Doe larger than
ordinary walking-canes. After they had Mood
for some time in front of the Court House, May
or Hoyer ascended the steps, and stated, in
a few words, in the German labguage, that Hit
her and the other persona named had been ar
rested by due process of law, that they were
now in Philadelphia where they would have a
fair hearing before an officer of the United
Sates Court, that their friends had sent coun
sel to defend them; and concluded by advising
the crowd to disperse, go home, and not provoke
a disturbance of the peace by their presence in
a mass. Julia S. Richards, Esq., followed the
Mayor in a few remarks of similar import. He
said that he understood the object of their com
ing was to ascertain what had become of Huber
and the others. He thought they bad a right to
know this ; they had been arrested by authority of
the U. S. Court, for organizing a secret associa
tion to oppose the laws, and wore now in Phila
delphia. Their lawyers had gene with them,
and they would have a full bearing and a fair
trial. .
After this, the crowd separated, the country
people going down street toward the Plough and
Harrow Hotel, in separate groups. Some, how
ever, remained about the corner of Sixth and
Penn street, engaged in conversation. During
the excitement that prevailed at this time, Mr.
GEORGE LASE, a well-known and respectable
citizen of Spring 'township, who had come to
town with the others, was arrested by order of
Samuel L. Young, Esq., a Commissioner of the
United States, on a charge of being connected
with the secret organization alluded to, or of
having uttered seditious language, we could not
ascertain positively which, and taken before Mr,
Young, in his [face, who demanded bail of him
in the sum of $lO,OOO. The bail was given, and
Mr. Lash was rpleased. This proceeding drew
the crowd together again, and as Mr. Lash and
his friends were leaving the office, they were
hooted at with the cries of " rebel," " traitor,"
hang him !" Sm., and one or two of the coun-
try people were struck at and had their hats
knocked over their eyes by persons in the crowd.
At this time, the excitement reached a pretty
high pitch, and a serious riot was apprehended;
but we are glad to say, for the credit of our usu
ally peaceful city, that the personal interposition
of the Mayor, assisted by law-abiding citizens of
both parties, proved effectual in suppressing the
angry passions of the multitude, and in prevent
ing further violence on either side.
By Mat; quiet eeemecl to be restored, and the
greater portion of the country people had crossed
the bridge on their way home. A few remained
about the Plough and Harrow Hotel until after
dinner, when a party of men, said to be from a
Foundry up town, went down, and got into an
altercation with some of the countrymen, the re
sult of which was that two or three of the latter
—one of whom was intoxicated—were badly
beaten. What was the provocation to this at
tack, we did not learn, but heard it said that one
of the persons beaten had "hurrahed for Jeff."
Iron knuckles and slung shot, it is said, were
used by one or more of the assailants. At the
roqueat of the Mayor s Mr. Geiger, preprietOr Of
the Plough and Harrow, closed his bar-room;
and in the course of an hour or so, all the coun
try people had left town, the crowd had dispers
ed, and the usual quiet in our streets was re
This is a plain and impartial account of the
occurrences on Thursday, of which highly ex—
aggerated and in many particulars erroneous
accounts appeared in the Philadelphia papers of
yesterday. In regard to the secret associations
against which these proceedings are aimed, we
have to say, briefly, that our opinion of all secret
political organizations is now the same as it was
when we considered it our duly, as a public
journalist, to oppose and denounce the " Know-
Nothing" conspiracy—that they are unneces
sary under a government of constitution and
law, like ours; that they are contrary to the
spirit of republican institutions; and that they
lead to no good end, that cannot be better at
tained by open and public means. But, at the
same time, we cannot see that secret societies of
Democrats, for iurposes not contrary to law,
under whatever name they may exist, are any
more objectionable than secret, oath•bound ass°
ciations of Abolitionists, under the denomination
of "Union Leagues."
Huber, the reputed leader of these alleged
treasonable societies, and Messrs. Filbert, Illig
and Oxenrider, had a hearing on Thursday af
ternoon before U. S. Coon Ili. rt.; of
the District Court. They were arraigned on the
charge of conspiracy against, the Go

Attorney, appeared for the Government, and the
Hon. J. °caner JONES, of this city, as counsel
for Messrs. Filbert, Illig and Oxenrider. Joust
P. O'Neil", Esq., appeared for Huber. He ex
pected Mr. JONES would defend him, but that
gentleman declined Preliminary to the exam
ination the affidavit upon which the warrant of
arrest was issued, was read. It was made by
William Y. Lyon, ‘, United States Detective,"
April Gth, 1863, and sets forth—
That there have been organized, in various
parts of forks county, Pennsylvania, seditious
and treasonable Collibinations, lodges, or socio
ties, the object of which is to create disaffection
against the Government of the United States, to
prevent and resist the execution of the United
States laws, and particularly the act of Congress
providing for a conscription or draft of soldiers;
the cold lodges meet al night-time, pay an initi
ation fee, and are bound together by an oath;
said societies have from fifty to eighty and a
hundred members each; that one was organized
nt the house of Jacob Zeller, near Stouohshurg,
Pennsylvania, and other places. The affidavit
further sets forth the names of some of tho mem
bers of said association, including parties who
have not been arrested.
The following report of the testimony taken
before the Commissioner, is from yesterday's
Inquirer. We deem it proper to premise that
there is nothing in all this testimony to impli
cate Messrs. Filbert, Illig, or Ozenrider in any
unlawful act, and that Lyon's testimony against
Huber is, so fat, unsupported by other evidence.
As an offset to it, we may state that we have the
solemn assurance of men in whose word the
most implicit reliance can be placed, that the
secret associatiens which have aroused such a
hitter feeling have no treasoonble or improper
object, anti that, the Only obligation its members
are required to take, is one to support the Consti
tution of the United States, and labor for ale rest°•

the music was appreciated. Our limited space this week
will not allow us to notice the Concert as It deserved. We

with testa and good judgment, and that the orchestral
pieces, choruses, Stc., were rendered with great precision,
expreiedou and effectiveness. The solo parts of the several
pieces were particularly worthy al' praise, and elicited the
deserved encomiums of our nicest musical critics who were
present. The ladies who sang, have good voices well
nianuited, which, with a little more of the careful cultiva
tion to which they have evidently been subjected, Will
rise to brllliaut excellence. Mr. Lyons, the Conductor of
the Concert, and Musical Instructor of the Association,
(who, by the way, is a native born Readingor) deserves
great credit for his cancers in drilling the large Choir
Which has been under hie tuition during the winter, to
sing the composition., of the hest Masters with so much ac
curacy, taste and harmony. The proficiency the members
have attained, dhows how much the " Mozart Union" has
d. us toward (ho improvement of Church music in our oily.
We hope it may persevere in its good work, and allow Our
citizens frequent opportunities to share the benefits that
proceed from it, by a frequent repetition of such refining,
purifying and soul•inspiring entertainments as the one of
Tuesday night.

Columbus on Monday afternoon. They then passed on to
Cincinnati, where the eitiZetili paid theta a great deal of at
tention, Crossing the ferry into Kentucky, the Battery
took the Central Railroad at Covington, and reached retie,
their present location, at 9 o'clock en Tuesday morning.
Paris is a town with about 10,000 lababitanta. The men
