the day in hearing their statements. It
seems that nearly every white

and that they whipped men, woman and
children for belonging to Republican

"This savage spirit was born of the re
bellion, The leaders, who in 1861 threw
off all moral restraint by deliberately
engaging in rebellion, and who roped And
handcuffed the common men of the
South and forced them into battle against
their will; who shot deserters and con
scripts with -as little compunction as if
they had been dogs; who trampled on all
law and all liberty which were the birth
right, of the Southern masses; who wore
willing to sacrifice everything but their
own lives for their dream of a confedera
cy, and who were even anxious, in the
last resort, to have the colored men fight
to rivet slavery on themselves and their
children—these are the men, still sullen
and defiant, who sowed the seeds of this
new harvest of blood, and who are prim ;
arily and chiefly responsible for all the
horrible;acts of the Kuliluxwhich have
been brought to light. Whether these
leaders shall be caught and punished or
not, public . opinion will 'fasten these
crimes upon them, and the' damned spot'
will never "out."

John W. Mitchell, chief of 'c'a Klan,
and a fierce negro 'whipper, waa senten
ced to pay a fine of $lOOO and undergo
an imprisonment of five years. There
are four or five indictments against him,'
and if he is convicted on all of them he
will in all probability spend the rest of
his days in the penitentiary. In pass
ing sentence Judge Bond gave captain.
Mitchell apiece of his mind:
"Judge Bond—it appears to the court
from the testimony that has: been taken
in,this case that you were a very promi
neneman in that neighbOrhOod, and all
these young men andignorent people bad
a right to look. up to you for &ection,
and then you were a chief of a Klan, and
from you ,
.all the orders came; you were a
man of property and pOsition: you had
an opportunity to -know the transactions
that were going on, because you were a
chief; ,you had better means of informa
tion than those men had, who were always
accustomed to follow the prominent peo
ple in their particular section of country.
Knowin all this; hearin: of the ravish-
ing, murders and, whipping going on in
York county, you never took any pains
to inform anybody, you never went to the
civil authorities and you remained a chief
till they elected somebody else.
"The prisoner—l was afraid to do that
for fear of my own life.
"Judge Bond continuing—You were a
fraid of of your own life from the very
institution you set on foot. You have
app e' or mercy on accoun 0 y,
family, and it is proper that you should
appeal to the Court on that ground. But
you never thought of the families of these
other people. Men were taken out and
murdered within sight of their wives and,
men werescourged and their wives scourg:
ed by this infamous organization, of which
you were chief. The judgment' of the
Court in our case is that you be fined one
thousand dollars and that you 'e impris
oned for five years."-
Samuel G. Brown, Esq., was sentenced
to pay a fine of $l,OOO and undergo an
imprisonment of five years. Jud2Tißoi-0
also had a little talk with him
"Judge Bond—l have your affidavit.—

cy, but that you took a prominent part
in it. You are a man advanced in years,
and those who were young and ignorant
had a right to look to you for direction
and advice. Either at the time these raids
were going on or previously I understand,
you occupied some judicial position in your
county. The State had armed you with
a part of its power, but, so far from exer
cising your power and ability in the di
rection of peace, law and order, yo u
brought your influence—
"S. G. Brown (interrupting)—Allow
me to say, sir, I have not held the posi
tion of Magistrate - since, I think, '67 or
68. I have never been a Trial Justice."
"Judge Bond—The condition of those
who were the 'victims of this conspiracy
was hopeless. A man who had been ap
pointed to protect the• innocent and the
helpless was untrue to his trust in giving
them no protection. You stated in your
affidavit that on one occasion you preven
ted a raid on some one whom the Klan
thought should be raided on. The court
will give you the benefit of this one in
stance of a return to manhood ; that hu
man heart would indeed be hard which
could hear of bloodshed and violence,
and take no part in the endeavor to sup
"The judgement of the court in your
case is that you be fined $l.OOO and im
prisoned for five years. [Mr. Brown was
about to make some further explanation,
when judge Bond said : You evidently
dou't propose to tell all you know, and I
don't therefore, propose to hear further.]"
THE GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE.—The an
nual message of Governor Geary is very
lengthy document, and as most of our
readers have perused it by this time, we
will but briefly allude to some of the
more important topics contained in it.
The exhibit of the finances shows that
the Commonwealth is in a very credita
ble state, and gratifying to the tax payers
The total deduction of the public debt
since December 1, 1866, is 88,724,838,04.
The amount of debt remaining on the
30th of November last was 826,980,071,-
73, and the available assets amount to
$10,876,808,59, so that the debt remain.
ing not provided for is only $18,103,268,-
The Governor alludes in appropriate
terms to the subjects of constitutional re
form and Congressional apportionment,
and urges with regard to the educational
system .of the State increased' facilities for
instruction, with a hint in the direction
of compulsory education.
The. Governor advises the passage of a
law to provide for compulsog vaccina
tion, in view of the usual prevalence of
small pos. iu the Cities and populous dis
tricts. Interesting and important sug
gestions are also given in respect to fur
ther legislation for the coal minors.
The Governor thinks that the condi•
tion of the military organization of the
State is in an efficient condition.
With the regard to pardons his Excel
lency reviews his wielding of the power
placed in his bands with much self grat
ulation. He states that during the past
year one thousand and 23 pardons were
.asked for, and but sixty granted. .
The Message concludes with a desire
that the.session may be characterized by
tuaiversolltindam and generosity, while

School Building, belonging to Rev. J. F.

11 o'clock and was entirely consume&
The building was occupied by Mr. John
Ford, most of whose effects were fortu
nately saved. It appears the chimney or
flue in the back building was cracked,
through which fire was communicated to
One of the joice, thus causing the distruc
tion of the building. But for the tardi
ness of citizens in getting the engine on
the ground, the front or main building
might have been saved, or with a couple '
of firemen's hooks a few individuals could
have removed the back building in time
to save the other, but the hooks and fore
sight were wanting. This shows the im
portance of having a more efficient fire
aparatus and - a regularly organized compa
ny. Had the roofs of houses been dry
and the wind high, the result might have
been more disastrous. The fire on the
part of the citizens, not less than four or
five hundred c f whom were present, to say
the least, was. badly managed. We un

MEIEDER:.-A horrible murder was per
pbtrated in Baltimore on Sunday evening,
of which the American gives the following
particulars : Dr. Merryman Cole, an ag
ed gentleman,formerly a physician,but not
actively engaged in practice for someyears,
was csogsinated in his office about 7:30
P. M., where his dead body was discover
ed in a few minutes afteriards. He liv
ed at No. 102 North Exeter street. He
was the owner of a number of small hous
es, which he leased out by the week, and
it was his habit to go to his office evel
Saturday evening and receive his rents.
When his tenants did not appear he often
went after them, most of his houses being
in the immediate vicinity of his office. He
was seen talking to - a man in Necessity
alley about seven o'clock, and shortly af
terwards returned to his office. He was
evidently sitting at his table when he was
struck on the head with a hatchet orsome
similiac weapon, and the blows repeated
until life was extinct. A small package
of money (eighteen dollars in currency),
which he was probably handling at the
time he was struck, was found lying on
the floor, and a wallet containing twenty
His watch was in the fob pocket of his
pantaloons, and was not disturbed. If
plunder was the object of the murder the
villians must have made a very imperfect
search for the money which the murdered
man had on his person. The murder was
dis Covered by a colored woman who came
he office about ei. ht o'clock to a
her rent. She ran to the Doctor's house
and informed his family, and the alarm
soon became general. When the neigh
bors ran to the office they found Dr. Cole
lying with his head under the table at
which he had been . setting. His skull
was fractured in several places, and there
sere several cuts and stabs on his face
and neck. There were no marks of any
struggle, and it is probable that the first
blow was fatal. Several arrests weie made
yesterday, but.nothing was dieted that
tended to throwing light-on-the_dreadfuL
A MURDER.—On Tuesday afternoon
a - fatal affair occurred at Bridgeport, in
Bedford County, Pa., on the line of the -
Pittsburg an d Connelsville 'Railroad,
some fourteen miles from this city. It
seems that on the day previous a man
named Goldman had been shot there by
some unknown party. • On Tuesday the
Constable was making some inquiries a
bout the metier, when a young man nam
ed John McAtee said he could find the
guilty man, and would bring him to /the
constable fora reward of $3. This was a•
greed upon, and . McAtee produced the
prisoner, and demanded the reward.—
The constable declined to give 'the three
dollars, but offered him fifty cents. Mc-
Atee said he wanted three dollars, .anti
must have it, without any difficulty. 'The
constable said "very' well, I will get it
for you and started off quickly towards a
store. Mcatee, thinking he was going off
too rapidly, reached out and caught the
constable by the shoulder, and told him
not to go off so fast. At that instant, a
man named - Hartman, a friend of thecon
stable, who was standing a few paces off,
with a gun in his hand, brought the gun
to his shoulder, and taking deliberateaim
at McAtee, rihot him dead on the spot:—
The murderer was taken to Bedford and
committed to jail.—Somerset Herald.

youngest children in the house. During
there absence, by some means , they got
hold of a bottle of powder, which . was in
the house, and poured it into the fire in
front of the stove. It instantly blazed
up, and burnt all of the children badly ;
two of them so intensely scorched that it
is feared they will lose their eye sight.—
