Lehigh Valley Rail Road.
Below Will be foufftl a statement, clip
ped from the Eeiston Journal , of the oper
ations of this Company for the past year:
FISCAL VFEAR OF RHK LEHIGH VALLEY.
R. R.— Saturday, November 30th, closed
the fiscal yew of this corporation, and ;
shows that tinder the workings of its effi
cient officials there is a large increase in
the business of the road for 1867. The
increase of coal tonnage is large, as will
be seen by the following exhibit:
Cost curried over tbe main line and
branches for year ending Nor. 30th,
1867, 2,080,156 lb
Wyoming Kegion, 274,333 14
Hacleton, 775,307 18
Bearer Mendi-w 577,678 05
Mahoney Kegion, •" .452,836 19
showing an increase of 42.442 09 over the j
season of 1806. The shipments by rail
east from Mauch Chunk show more of an
increase and foot up 217,74G 18 tons, or !
lc£ per cent.
To transport this large amount of coal
cannot but tax the energies ot the officers
of the road to the utmost, and when we
take into consideration that no detention of
any account was occasioned during the
i year, we may safety conclude that the Le
high Valley Railroad is managed with the'
utmost skill and prudence—a fact most
gratifying to the stockholders.
The coal tonnage is not the only in
crease of the business of the road. The
freight department shows an increase over
the receipts *of 1866 of 17 per cent., and
: the receipts of the passenger department
j show a gain of 10J per ceut, over the re
' ceipts of 1866.
It should be remembered that the road
was only completeo to the Wyoming Val
ley during the past Summer. It is now in
operation up to the Lackawanna at the
north end of I'ittsion. The luidge at that
point being about finished, and the grading
and other work along the line of the canal
northward being nearly done, we think we
can safely calculate upon taking the cars
at this place lor our next fourth of July
excursion. The mad from Towanda to
the State line is now in operation, so that
there only remains tbe link between that
place and Pittston to be built, to secure
through trains from tbe New York & Erie
R R. at Waverly to New York and Phil
adelpbia. This, at the longest we think,
will be consummated in the early part of
the year' 69.
We notice by our exchanges that this
companv are offering for sale, at their of
fice No. 412 Walnut street, Philadelphia,
of the first mortgage bonds of
the Pennsylvania and New York Canal
and Railroad Company. The Lehigh Val
lev R. li. Co. has eon'rol of the road and
guarantee the punctual payment of the
principal and interest. They are seven
per cent, coupon bonds, interest payable
semi-annually on the Ist of June and Ist
of December, aud will be disposed of at 95
At this rate these bonds afford a better
and safer investment for raonied men than
any now in market, not excepting the 7-30's
of the United States. Being secured by a
first mortgage on a road and improvements
which when completed will be one of the
best paying in the country.
THE ELECTION FRACDS IN PENNSYL
VANIA.—The Philadelphia Age sets forth
the full particulars of the election trauds
committed by the Commissioner appointed
by Gov. Geary, of Pennsylvania, to take
tbe votes of the soldiers at Fort Delaware.
The following facts are proved:
"Four persons, three of them minois, and
not one of them a resident, voted in Company
L. These fabricated returns represented that
sixty persons voted. The Poll Book sets
out the names of these sixty voters, Fifty
Jour of the*t names are fictitious. Twenty
eight persons only [six of them enlisted in
l'enn.jvcted in Co. K. These fabricated
returns represent that 63 persons voted.
The Poll-Book sets out the names of 63
person? 54 of wkii h are fictitious. Connected
with these proofs of the crimes the returns
exhibit certificates, prepared with clerkv
neatness.well calculated to cheat the reader,
purporting to be signed by judges and
clerks of the election These signtureas
number 24 in the Poll-Book of Co I, and
22 in the Poll-Book of Co. K.
The Aye asks if this gross fraud is to go
unpunished, and says:
" It adds one dark feature to this black
transaction, that, the whole seheme [even
if the signatures and names are genuine and
the soldi< rs were residents] was a fraud.
There was no law in existence to auth
orize the proceeding. The war is over, the
volunteers of the State have long been out
of service. Gov. Geary's commission to
Henry Mitchell, Esq.. as he is styled
therein was an act ontside of the law, arid
though tl)e Governor is,not responsible for
the abuse of his commission, yet he is
responsible for an act which invited, and
we may add, directed his agents to obtain
votes of the soldiers at Fort Delaware, with
a view that they should be counted as part
of the vote of the election ot this common
THE BLACK ART IS POLITICS, —By the
disfranchisement of three-fourths of the
men of the South, and the enfranchisement
of the emancipated slaves, the radicals hope
to elect the next President. They fear the
loss of the Middle States, most of the
Western States the Pacific States, the
Border States, " and a good portion of New
England. Hence their black Keconstruc
tion scheme. Southern States could not be
contro led in their interest, so thro' the black
vote, they affected to regard tlicm out of the
Union. So soon as they can manage those
States, through negro voters they will pro
nouncc them in the Union. This may be
fairly styled the black art in politics. It is
the IT iserable thimble-rigsing of desperate
politicl jugglers. 'With them the Union is
the Little joker. "Now you nee it, and now
you don,t see it." Bnt some of the people
who have attended the Radical show and
paid dearly for a back seat in the pit, are
beginning to bc"amongtlie missing."— Ex.

The following is Gen. Hancock's Order
issued on taking command of the Louisia

a doctrine as this, therefore the bowl.

1867, Major-General YY'.S, Hancock here
by assumes command of the Fifth Military
Distiict, and of the Department composed
of the States of Louisiana and Texas
Second —The General Commanding is |
gratified to learn that peace and quiet reign
in this department. It will be his purpose
to preserve this condition of things. As a
means to this great end he regards the
maintenance of the civil authorities in the
; faithful execution of the law, as the most
! efficient under existing circumstances. In 1
war it is indispensable to repel force by !
foice, and overthrow Hnd destroy opposi
tion to lawful authority ; but when insur
rectionary force has been overthrown and
peace established, and the civil authorities j
are ready and willing to perform their du-
I lies, the military power should cease to
lead and the civil admin'-traiion resume its j
natural and rightful dominion. Solemnly
: impressed with these views, the General
announces that the great principles of;
American liberty still are the lawful inher
i itance of this people, and ever should be. !
The right of trial by jury, the habeas cor- j
pus , the liberty of the Press, the freedom j
of speech, and the natural rights of per- 1
! sons and the rights of property must be I
preserved. Free institutions while they !
are essential to the prosperity and happi- |
ness of the people, always furnished the j
strongset inducements to peace and order. ;
Climes and offences committed in the dis- j
trict must be referred to the consideration
and judgment of the regular civil authori
ties, and those tribunals will he supported
in th* ir lawful jurisdiction. Should there
be violations of existing laws which are
not inquired into by the civil magistrates,
or should failures in the administration of ,
justice by the Courts be complained of, the
cases will be reported to these aeadquar \
i ters, when such orders will be made as
I deemed necessary. While the (ieneral j
thus indicates his purpose to respect th<
| liberties of the paople, be wishes all to un
derstand that armed insurrections or forci- j
Die resistance to the law will be instantly
suppressed by arms.

" If there had been no Democratic par-!
j ty, there would have been no war,"— Hud- j
How often this falsehood has been re
peated by the Radical journals and speak- j
ers, we have no means of ascertaining. If
1 constantly repeating a false statement
I make it true, it woulu have long since been
acknowledged as an aosolute fact. But
unhappily for those who have more to gain
from falsehood than truth, it never has ;
been and it never will be true.
The (act is they have hut changed fronts.
Dad there been no Republican or Radical
party, there would have been no war.—
I The Democratic party lias existed from the j
time of Jefferson, and a great part ol that j
time has been in power. But such was the i
confidence of the people of all parties in its ;
integrity and its justice that, though many ;
! of the present leadeis of the Radical party
often threatened war, they were never able j
to induce the people to folfaw them into
rebellion. The old Federal party, the
Democratic party, the \\ big party, have in
turn been in power, but peace always pre
vailed throughout the laud. It was reserv
ed foi the modern Republican party to iu
volvc the country in a fearful war, which it
| neither had the tact, or perhaps we should
j say, the desire to avoid, nor the ability to
bring to a successful termination tih it had
sacrificed hundreds of thousands of lives
and thousands of millions of treasure, filling
i the land with woe and imposing upon the
people a burden of debt which weighs
down all their energies.
Yes, we repeat it, had thcro been no
' Radical party organized in this country,
whose avowed object was a dissolution of
tin- Union, there would have been no war.
1 That is as certain as that the sun rises once
jin each twenty-four hours. True, it takes
two parties to make a war, as it does a
j match at fistenfls. One of these parties
1 has been annihilated with bullets, and the
! other is being rapidly annihilated by bal
lots, and all the sophistry and all the pro
j fe.-sion of loyally on the part of Radicals
have failed to blind the people to their
j short-comings. In proof of our declara
; tion, we refer the reader to the speeches of
( the Radical orators, members of Congress,,
j and of the l'eace Convention of 1861.

DON'T LIKE GRANT'S TESTIMONY.—A
Washington correspondent says : 'The lead
ing Radical* in both houses are intensely dis
gusted with Gen. Grant's testimony before
the Judiciary Committee. They threaten to
annihilate him politically before their nomi
nating convention meets next summer. The
Chase men are in 'high feather' over this au
thoritative expose of the status of their must
Radicals Against White Men.
Not content with raising the ignorant
negroes of the Southern States to a full
political equality with white men, the
Radicals have so gerrymandered thu states
through the agency of the Stevens-Sherman
bill, as to give the" negroes undue power in
proportion to their numbers. In \ irginia,
Alabama, and Louisiana, this fact is plainly
seen in the percentage of votes east by the
negroes; and in Florida the returns show
that the same system has been pursued.
The negro population of this Slate, under
the census of'lß6o, was in the neighborhood
of sixty-six thousand, and yet fifteen thou
sand negro votes have beeo returned at the
late election, or one voter for each four of
the negro population, this is not a fair
proportion. In no one of the Northern States
is there so large a white vote cast in pro
portion to the popularity and this tact
shows conclusively that the negro vote is
not fair or honest. As a further illustration
of this Radical fraud, look at some tacts in
relation to West Florida, Four districts
have been created in that portion of the
State, and nine del gateselecied. In iln-se
districts they are registered 2,088 whites
to 2,458 negroes, yet the whites can elect
but two delegates, while the blacks elect
the other seven! That gives a delegate to
every 353 negro voters, while the whites
are allowed but one to every 1,343. It is
very nearly the same way in Middle Flor
ida ; al-o, too, in Kastern and Southern
Florida. In Middle Florida, the 7,659 reg.
ist< red negro voters elect 16 delegates while
the 3.039 white voters chct but 3 ! In
Southern and Kastern Florida, 5,325 ne
groes elect 13 delegates, while 4,833 whites
elect hut 5 ! In addition to this fraudulent
manner of representing the negroes of Ilor
ida, they have been allowed to vote where
they choose, under one or s dozen names,
and in this manner monopolize the whole
political power and influence of the State,
They have sent their tools an i agents to tfie
Convention, and the Constitution will be
framed in the interest of the negroes, and
in opposition to white men.
J low can the unrepresented States ever
be restored to their old relations with the
Federal government under such a system
as that now prevaling in the South? VY bite
men have lost all control of public affairs,
and negro rule is daily becoming more
consolidated and tyrannical. The property,
lives, and liberty of the white lace, south
of the Potomac, aie now in the hands of
negroes, w ho have not the remotest idea of
civil government. And this is the Radical
plan for "restoring the Slates to the Union ;
for building up the waste places in the
Southern section of this nation. If white
men do not wish to seethe South turned
into a Ilayti, they must crush into nothing
ness the party which would place the hei I
of the negro on the neck of the white race,
and check the nation in its onward march
to prosperity and renown Age.
