GEARY. 31111tITORS, ATTENTION ! Enrrout.u. coxvTforx.—A conven tion of the edito - zial fraternity. of Central l'eunsylvania, will be held at Bellefonte, on Friday the Sth day of January, ISO,. for the double purpose of celebrating the anni versary of the battle of New' Orleans, and ogrecin: , upon a scale of prices for adver tising and job work, to be hereafter adhered to. It is expected, of conr:;e, that a "good time" will 'be inciden tal. and editors generally throughout the Shd e ttot , invited to come out and bring the "knitting" with them. Papers tbrotr,dund the State are requested to copy this 110:i0e. - By order of the committee.FATß J. . EY. Secretary. " The above call for an 'ieditorial convention, is being widely circula ted ; and it is confidently expected, will *nit in such a gathering of the "knights of the quill," as will throw far iiito the shade any similar convention heretofore held in the State. The free use of the town hall has been kindly tendered for the occasion.. The deliberations will be of such a character, as cannot fail to benefit the fraternity. Editors, as allthe world knows, ate sociable animals, and are disposed to look up on the bright side of life, so that we may look forward to a pleasant time: ern NExii: GOVERNOR It must oe not a little gratifying to Gov. Geary, and his numerous friends, to see the unanimity with whiek the Press of the State urge his re-election. Out opinion, which we base upon the tone of our Re publican exchanges, is, that he will be nominated by acclamation, while his election will be effected by a Ma jority more nearly unanimous than that given any Gubernatorial candi date for many years. It is an ad mitted fact that he is honest, faith ful, and capable ; while his popular ity is undoubted: With these few circumstances existing, his election is a foregone conclusion. As we in timated in a former issue, we consid er as the true policy in this matter, that where an official has during his first term, done well, common jus tice to . himself, not less than the best interests of those whom he rep- . resents, demands his continuance in oflice,that he may if possible be able to do better. In the selection of the chief Executo of this Common wealth we should not lose sight of what is, or should be the object of our efforts, "the greatest good to the greatest number." Sectional preference, or personal prejudices, should be studiously kept in the bade ground.• The desire for the Governor's re-election is deemed to no locality ; but the expression which is very general on this matter•. must be taken to indicate a general want. here then we have au op portunity of convincing the "boys in blue" by the re-election of one of their representativa men, that the frequent promises of reward for ser vices, made them both during and since the war, were not the empty and delusive things, our political op ponents so often asserted them to be. We elected the General once ; we will now repeat the interesting proceeding, and persuade our sol dier boys that they were jtistified iu putting the most liberal construc tion upon .our promises. Let us then form our lines anew. We have the same old political battles to fight over. The identical issues that distracted public attention du ring the years past, still exists, - un der new names it is true, and al though our opponents indulge them selves in frequent changes of tactics their weapons are ever the same. Ignorance and prejudice constitute their heavy ordnance ; while the light arms of their service, consists of personal detraction and abuse ; and of bitter vituperation, unfound ed assertions, and disgusting slang. This warfiire must and will contin ue, while Mullen nature remain 4, ca pable, of perversion ; yet we have the pleasing consciousness that right and justice will in the end triumph. Then too, if we but work as we should, we can enjoy the pleasure of seeing our opponents, suffer an un broken succession of defeats ; and since light and knowledge, are in their effects death and destruction to the latter-day Democracy, let us dis seminate the truth. The pillar of Democratic principles, so-called, is fast crumbling. .Let us be wanting in nothing that will hasten its over- throw. WE are in receipt of a communication signal "Yeritas," which we regret exceed ingly our lack of space prevents appearina itt full. In it, the Lyconzing Daily Ga zette, one of our exchanges, is favorably noticed. This journal, established in ISM,. is now ander the management of Messrs. Huston, Scholl Trout. Mr. Scholl, it seems, originally hailed from this place, having served an apprenticeship in the office of the "Centre Democrat," formerly pue of the institutions of Bellefonte. THE LAST SENSATION% EyEnt, ifewsiiiner,-, writer frimi BoOlin tom's, his been tngag 'ed for the past week or ten furnishing copy to his dtvil in. this case of Hester Vaue.ian, until the matter has been woo ed up - to a pitch of subFariity really grand. Soine writer.,, have become so famil iar with tt e subject, tint they simp ly refe."l.• to it as "the case of Hester Vataghan," while commenting-on the "exceeding sinfulness .of sin." They speak glibly of injustice; of unpin . iShed wrongs ; and'of the sympathy created by her case; without giving the partiCulars connected with the inatter,,or anythinglike a history of the affair. ..We speak or it, because we think- it likely many have read these frequent references to the case, without getting from them anything like a clear'. understanding of it. Hester Vaughan, who is now the central object of interest, and who justly merits the sympathy of all right-minded persons, is, it seems an English girl of respectable, who some time has been residing at Phil adelphia. She, as has been true of others of her sex, • was cursed ,with . beauty ; and yet she bid fair to paSs through. life without ; suffering more • than ger due share of its sorrows, until her accfnaintace with some One unknown, began. We say unknown because she still persiits as she has ever done, in refusing to make known the name of her betrayer. She has herself becomeknown -through, her misfourtunes. • • She was tried some months ago, -and convicted of infant-. icide ; indeed -She confessed her GoV. Geary lids for reasons satisfactory to himself,'and-we doubt not, such as would prove generally satisfactory, *ere . they °generally : known, refrished . to sign her ' ,death. warrant. . And although_ she has never been reelased, from,,imprison nient, her case has not been wanting the freedom of discussion: As we, have intimated, leading journals ev-, ery w here liayd.espotised her. , cause; and but lately delegation of ladies from New York, strong in i the sense ofjnstice peculiar-to their sex-; -and' with their liNelieat Sympaties . tided in the interest of one who has been grossly wronged, Waited upon. Gov. Geary, - to urge his immediate . interference in - her behalf.. We by no meat* hiii)rove thd'policy that would reftiSe: expiesa . toita`Of condo lence,. oilers of assistance, or sugges tions as to what was right, • when made by citizens of 'another State, merely because they were citizens of another State ; bnt the fact is that the action takeuin this matter, by the citizens of New York, was so decided in its character; and partook so strongly of a fault-finding nature in its reference to the administration of justice in Pennsylvania; it was. so bitter in its reflections upon the Bar in Philadelphia, and so ' urgent in its demand that action should be - had upon their theory, as to strength en the very fooltsh sentiment of State pride. And in accordmce with the wishes of Pennsylvanians the Governor, in his very neat reply to the New York ladies, characteriz ed their proceedings,. as well asthose. of other people, as au interference. Those who have examined the evi d.ence in this • case, are persuaded that there are . many circumstances connected with it, which demand . executive clemency. We do not .for a moment sfippose that Miss. Vaug han will suffer the extreme penalty of the law.; indeed we confidently expect that she will be pardoned. It would be in the highett degree, tin:- jutt that she should suffer, while the real crimival, although, unknown, still lives unpunished. cui ME NEVER, so far as our knowledge goes, ht's there been a• time in the histery of our conntry, when -offen ces were more frequent or more hei nous, than at present. - The enormi ty and frequency of the crimes com mitted of late, call for more than a passing notice. There must 'be a cause ; some reason, some motive which prompts the .commission of the :numerous wrongs, which are making for our time a place in hiSto ry far from enviable. Lawlessness . seems to prevail on all hands ; pub lic opinion has become powerless to shade men's actions ; and criminals starting with the loss of their own self-respect, soon come to regard as valuless the good opinions of others, so that they are left without a check upon their movements, while their debased natures are amply fitted for their parts in the grand carnival of murder. When men's natures be comes so perverted ; and their ac tions seems to be dictated by a bru tish instinct, rather than by a sence of right; justice to others demands tnat the strong arm ofthe law should make itself be felt. The certainty of punish went, rather than its severity is what works the moral reformation It sometimes happens that offences work out their own punishment, and we are pleased to see, that this fre quency of murder, which is in itself so shocking; is about accomplishing its own destruction; since it is lead ing men to think seriously, as be comes a serions and important sub ject. We will hope that these cogi tations may lead to such, a revision of our penal code, as will lessen the frequency of crime. We begin to entertain a serious belief that this end may be attained by the abolition of capital punishment. When we take into account the great number of capital offences committed ; and the very few executions, compara tively, which occur in consequence, we must conclude that criminals form beforehand, an estimate of the amount of sympathy which may be created in their behalf, in the minds of a jury ; they make also a close THE NATIONAL, BELLEFONTE, PA., FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 18, 1868, calculation of, their chances:, obtaininga pardot4 and upon these estimates they tact. With, what, suc cess we know,tbo WellO.f,•however, capital punishment were 'aboliihed, and in its stead, the system of solita ryconfinement, were universally sub stituted ; if offenders were made . to understand that" this "punishment would, with the certianty of fate fol low close upon their acts that •it would be inevitable ; that escape would be hopeless, and pardon a thing" not to be thought of, they might be induced to pause before _it is too late. Certain it is, that some promptuction is • demanded. Our exchanges come to Us, filled with accounts of murders, committed Un. der every variety of circumstances ; indeed in some cases these acconnts constitute alniost all . the reading Matter. : The, following statement which appeared in the .Pros —a few days ago;isicalculated to direct' the attention•of•thUse having in charge the lawmaking power, to the • poto-• rions , fad. that .

Is it not time insurance 'companies should make residence in Philadelphia 'an extra risk '?" COATGAESSIONAL ,We can akpresent give but a brief synopsisrof ;the doings in the Senate and House up to Wednesday - night. The time of the Senate was °CPA/pied almost all of Wednesday in the- con sideration of the financial interests: of the country. Several. bills had. been' proposed, but that of Mr; . Edniundp;and*the one introduced' by Senator Morton attracted most at-' tendon. That Of. Mr. Morton p . fixed upon .18,72,-as the proper time tv, re-: sume specie payment. 'His speech which occupied :nearly two . 'hours, attracted more: attention than it is thought will be given any other ef fort Awing the session. The . ways and means committee introduced the following resolutions':. • ' crhat , neither Public policy nor the good faith.of.the nation will allow the redemp tion. of ftve-twe nty bonds until the United States s hall perform 4 primary duty of paYing'its notes' coin;" or making them equivalent thereto;and: measures should be adopted by Congress to sAcure the resume 7. tion of specie-payments at as early a period. as .practical." . . • . Tan -House. indulged itself in what Oster Commercial"deems a four-hones_ frolicovhich consisted of a drawing for seats by' the . members, and in which it seems there was considera; ble sport. Many changes:were effec ted; which were. not entirely agree : . able to those affected-by the change. The alleged"blbery in the . Alaska business ; the copper tariff bill, a to bacco bill ; together with affairs in Maryland and ..Georgia, and -some other matters of minor.- importance were taken into consideration by the. appropriate committees. • Ti ELE. PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE Below we *give a "slim", abstract, of what occurs to A.,T., the illtistrious, as the . appropriate -thing to be done under existing circumstances. • We refrain -from giving it entire, as we are' persuaded that there- is entirely' too much of it " such as it is." Upon the re-assembling of Congress, it again becomes my duty to call'your atten tion to the state of the Union, and to' its. continued disorganized condition under the various laws which have been passed upon the subject of Reconstruction. lie recommends the revocation of the "tenure of office bill," as essential to the best interests of the country. Ire then makes al?rief review of the public indebtedness from 1789 to the present time. A NEW 'NAY TO PAY DEBTS Our national credit should be sacredly observed ; but in making provision for "our creditors, we should not forget what' is due to the masses of the people. 'lt may be assumed that the holders of our securities have already received upon their bonds a larger amount, than their original invest ment, measured by a gold standard. Upon this statement of facts it would seem but just and equitable that the six . per cent. interest now paid by the Government should be Applied to the reduction of the principal' in semi-annual instalments, which in sixteen years and eight months would liquidate the entire national debt. ,Six per cent. in gold would, at present rates, be equal to nine per cent in currency; and equivalent to the payment of the debt one and alialf times in a fraction less than seventeen years. This, in connection, with all the other advantages derived froni" their investment, would afford to the pub lic creditors a fair and liberal compensa tion for the use of their capital, and with this they should be satisfied. The lessons of the past admonish the lender that it is not well to be over-anxious in exacting from the borrower rigid compliance with the letter of the bond. Our relations with foreign nations are generally cordial. The government of Paraguay, it is alleged, has' arbitrarily, seized two American citizens, aid offered indighities to our minister (Mr. Wash. hurne.) The 'newly appointed Minister, McMahon, who bas gone thither, will-in vestigate the matter, and the Rear -Ad miral commanding the United States South Atlantic squadron has been directed to at- tend the new Minister with.a proper naval force to sustain such just demands as the occasion may require, and to vindicate the rights of the United States citizens referred to, and of any others who may be exposed to danger in the theatre of war. He anngunees that the Bolivian Repub lic has established the extremely liberal principle of receiving into its citizenship any citizen of the United States, or of any other of the American Republics, upon the simple condition of volunteer registry. He speaks of the recent terrible earth quake in Peru, Equador and Bolivia, and says the services rendered the distressed by U. S. officers were promptly acknow leslged by the Congress of Peru. He submits an appeal for aid from the Swiss government, who are suffering extreme destitution produced by recent de- • vastating inundations. Our relations with Mexico during the year have been Marked by an increasing growth of mutual confidence. - Negotiations are pending with a view to the survey and construction of a ship can: al across the Isthmus of Darien under the auspices of the United States. He says berms been reluctantly obliged to ask explanations and satisaction for national injuries committed by the Presi dent of Hayti. Alaska was purchased with the view of ex tending natural jurisdiction and republi-, can principles in the American hemisphere. A treaty with the King of Demnark for the purchase of the islands of St. Thomas and St. John, and with the express consent of the people of these islands, is still under consideration in the Senate. Comprehensive national policy would seem to sanction the acquisition and incor poration into our Federal Union of the several adjacent continental and insular communities as speedily as it can be done peacefully, lawfully, and without any vio lation of national justice, faith, or honor. Foreign possession or control of these com munities has hitherto hindered the growth and impaired the influence of the United States. He thinks the time has come when the United States should intercede to effect a Union of the two Republics on the island of % Domingo. - Conceitlig our relations with ; Great Britain, he' says, there are three qiiestiMis remaining, yet unadjusted, but he holies 'they Willsoon be settled.
