A Rost Righteous Sentence.
The bold and fraudulent means used by the
copperheads in the city and county of Philadel
phia has at last met the proper reward. During
the last election the return judges of the 24th
ward took it upon themselves to declare the
men who had received the lowest number of
votes elected to the city council, and by this
fraudulent transaction they obtained a majority
of one in the city council, and by that majority
the cow cif filled the various city offices with
their own friends. These frauds were so plainly
proven iu court that an honest jury convicted
them of wilful fraud. Notwithstanding this
conviction, Isaac Leech, who bad been-fraudu
lently returned as a member of council, con
tinued in office and discharged a duty for which
another gentleman was elected.
Desperate efforts were made to evade a con
viction of these return judges, but the evidence
was so plain that even a Philadelphia jury
was bound to convict them. After this convic
tion an attempt was made to obtain a new trial,
but thanks to an honest, faithful judge, the
motion was overruled.
The Evening Bulletin of last evening gives the
following proceedings of the case, viz :
This morning, in the Quarter Sessions, Judge
Allison decided the motion Cr a new trial i.
MEM - Ur - .1 - 11 - zrore... C . scruva iAtlerh eft,
James Torbet and Tuomaa A. Fagan, Return
Judges of the Twenty-fourth Ward, convicted
of misdemeanor in preparing an illegal certifi
cate declaring Isaac Leech a member of Com
mon Council. The motion was overruled and
the deic:ideate called up for sentence. All
were present except Logue, of whom a physi
cian's certificate was received respresenting him
too ill to be removed from his house. Judge
Allison, in passing sentence, said :
You have been convicted of a violation of
your duty and oath of office as judges of the
election held in October last. The facts proved
on the trial, and the consequences resulting
from your action, renders you's a case remarka
ble as an cdd and daring violation of the law,
whose plainest command yon knowingly vio
lated; disregarding the legal evidence of the
expressed will of a majority of the voters of one
of the Wards of the city which you held in
your hands at the time, you by official resole
tion voted to give certificates of election to per
sons having not the highest but the lowest
number of votes polled. This you thought
proper to do after havieg sought advice (refer
ring toa visit paid by the defendants to Judge
Ludlow, before the perpetration of the fraud,)
which, had you regarded, would have saved
you from your, present condition and would
have protected the community from the Nimbi;
inflicted upon it by - you—a wrong which stand.
unredressed to this day, and which, in its
nature and effect, is at war with the fundamen
tal principle on which our entire government
rests, and which is a reproach upon the exercise
of the election franchise.
The law regards your crime as moat infamous.
It affixes to it the penalty of a disability on
your part to hold any office-:of ihonoretrust or
profit in- this Commonwealth for the period of
seven years, and takes from you for the same
period the power -of exercising the elective
franchise. This is no more than just, for, crimes
of this character must cease or, as. conse
qwmce, violence will take the place of the
peaceful operation of law. It is to be hoped
that this will be the last case of the kind in
which it will be necessary impose a punish
meat, for a cause like that for which you stand
The sentence rf the Court is that each of you
pay a fine of $2OO ; that you pay the costa of
prosecution, and that each of you undergo an
imprisonment of six Months in the County
Wberi this man spoken Harrisburg some
monthifsinCe, he:delivered words of truth and
eloquence, and indulged ht a reasoning in de
fence of the Government which no man who
then heard him, could resist. ,We applauded,
becanse we believed. what he,then declared.
But ft appears that he has lately been deliver
ing speeches in Massachusetts, in whioh he de
clared that he glorie 1 in every reverse to our
arms. While in ordinary times, we would favor
the most unlimited freedom of speech, we do
think that during, the present crisis, the curl"should be applied to every one who prostitutes
his oratorical powers to treasonable purposes.
Phillips has United With Vallandigham in a
movement to overthrow the government, though
the two have chosen their paths fo oPPo-ite '
reasons. Transcending Vallandiaham in abil
ity, In eloqueuce, In learning, and in social po
sition, he is far the more dangerous individual
of the two,.and the Government will not dolts
duty until It closes'his mouth.
It matters not whether we are satisfied with
the policy of the President, or not„
struggle for national existence, and he who fal
ters, from whatever motive, or who wishes
success to the enemy, is a traitor, and should
be treated as such.

The Petetaburg (Vs.) Evreis of the 15th inst.
The affairs about Vicksburg at this time can
not be regarded as flattering. Although safe,
it will require the wawa creation, count, e .hd
skill to avert disaster. After havaig had a
year's time to perfect all the defence., it ap
pears rsthat we are now set upon in they
quarter where we had least expected. It w r y
be contraband to sly this mucn ; but it is due
to the people that they should know how affairs
stand, and if danger threatens they are entitled
to know in what quarter it is. The place for
the ne . F,.t fight will be below Vicksim g, or on
the Mined between Vicksburg and Jackson.
