CLEARFIELD, PA., NOV. 30, l.64.
Sherman is still "marching on." The
btearuer Herman Livingston has arrived at
Anapolia with 1,246 paroled prisoners irora
Savannah, and she brings ntwsthat the ex
change of prisoners has ceased, Sherman
having cut the railroad leading to Savannah.
It was supposed he had liberated all our
prisoners as he was only about six hours
march irom the stockade when the men who
arrived in the Herman Livingston left. It
was reported at Savannah that Macon and
Milledgeville had both fallen.
The rebel papers are forbidden to publish
the particulars of Sherman's march, but we
gather from the little they do say, that he
has been eminently successful, and that his
progress cannot be successfully impeded.
Our next issue will, no doubt, contain au
thentic news of the triumphant success of
this most wonderful unkertaking in history.
From Gen. Sheridan.
A report being current that Early had left
the Shenandoah valley, Gen. Sheridan sent
;i cavalry force to make a reconnoisance and
ascertain the position and probable strength
of any rebel force that might be in the val
ley. On the 23d our cavalry came upon the
rebels at Rood's Hill, where six hours severe
fighting took place during which our boys
made several splendid charges. The object
of the expedition having been accomplished,
our forces retired their loss being sixty in
the engagement with the enemy.
From the Southwest.
At latest accouuts the rebels under Hood
occupied Decatur and Huiitsville, Alabama.
A severe skirmish took place between some
of our troops and a rebel force on the 24th.
Union loss, 44 in killed and wounded rebel
loss 264. Gen. Thomas confronts Hood,
and is said to be fully able to defeat and
drive back the rebels, at any time.
The opposing factions of the Democracy
are not more vindictive towards the Union
party than they arc towards each other.
Each charges the other with infidelity to
their candidates, and thus endeavors to ac
count, in some measure, for their recent dis
astrous defeat. The Cleveland Plain Deal
er, one of the organs of the War Democrats,
attributes the defeat of Gov. Seymour in
New-York, to the refusal of soire ten thou
sand of the peaee-at-any-priee men to vote.
The New-York Daily JTeics, the peace or
gan par excellence, blames his defeat on the
AYar Democrats. This is the natural result
cf the two-faced policy of Chicago. We do
not believe that Seymour lost the vole of
one "peace man. They all supported him.
There were many War Democrats who op
posed his re-election because of his consist
ent infidelity to the principles, lie at first
professed. Next to the re-election of I'jos
ident Lincoln, Seymour's defeat was the
most gratifying result of the late canvass.
The following extract from the Boston
JW, a paper which most vigorous! oppos
ed the re-election of 3Ir. Lincoln, is in
striking contrast w.th the tone of many of
the "Democratic" organs in this vicinity.
The sentiment is that of a true patriot who
is not disposed to make the spirit of a poli
cal canvass a rule for his course during the
four years of an established Administration.
We commend it to the consideration of pa
triotic Democrats everywhere :
"Now that the people have given their
verdict for the re-election of Mr. Lincoln,
the minority are everywhere resolving to
rapport the constituted authorities. It is
not too strong to say that there is well-nigh
a united North in purpose to maintain the
integrity of the nation, and that in every
town and city, and state, the people are for
faying to the commander-in-chief of the ar
my and navy, hold on and hold out until the
United States flag floats over the whole of
the Republic."
Enrollment of Militia.
A general order has been issued from Har
risburg to the commissioners of the several
counties in Pennsylvania directing the im
mediate enrollment and classification of the
militia, under the provisions of the new mi
litia law. This is a move in the right direc
tion. It is contemplated, we lielieve, to or
ganize and equip a force of 15,000 men at
an early day. Pennsylvania will be prepar
ed, when this is done, promptly to repel all
future invasions of this State should the Reb
els ever have the hardihood to attempt an
other. . -t-.
The next session of the present Congress,
will commence on Monday, iA-ecniber 5th.
This is the short session and will close its la
bors on the 4th of March, 186).
TJm capital buildirrg3 of the territory of
Aradna arc made of rough logs."
The re-election of this gentleman to the
highest position held by any man now liv
ing by an immense majority of the suffra
ges of his countrymen, in the very crisis of
the most bloody and momentous struggle
that this or any other nation ever engaged in,
ensures to him a prominent place among
the great historic characters of the world.
It needed this to render that character com
plete. Had he retired at the end of one term,
he would still have occupied a large place in
history among the good, the great, the true ;
but now, with the seal of the approbation of
twenty millions of intelligent freemen en
stamped upon him. he stands before the
nations as the representative man of the
Great Republic, and the standard bearer of
Freedom in the world.
Henceforth his origin, his progress, his
character and his peculiarities his virtues
and his foibles, will all be subjects of inter
est and careful research to the philosopher,
the statesman, and the curious inquirer in
to human character ; and his words of wis
dom and his humorous sayings his public
documents, his peculiar epistles, his blunt
honesty and slow and easy firmness, and
even his homely features and ungainly
manners and movement, will all become
subjects of curious investigation and study.
Men will trace him back from the seat
whkh Washington' occupied, and which
Washington did not more adorn, to his at
torney's oflke in a western town; hence to
the heavy western forest where, with sharp
axe and brawny muscle, he hewed his way
forward ; thence to the clumsy flat boat
which, with the giant strength cf early
manhood he guided down the long, silent
current of the Mississippi ; thence back, still
farthejr, to the cabin of a poor man in Ken
tucky, where our great man of Nature's own
producing had his birth.
Of his education all that can be said is,
that he .was at school all his life. He read
looks a little, he read men much, lie read
nature more. What greatness he possesses
he owes more to native genius and a mar
velous versatility, than to any extraneous
advantages he ever enjoyed.
Abraham Lincoln is a man whom his
countrymen can and do trust. They love
him more than they admire him. He is a
favorite but not an idol. II is-character is
mosaic a strange medley of beauties and
blemishes and yet about as faultless as it is
commonly given to mortal man to be. He is
not like Cromwell, nor Hampdkv. nor
Franklin, nor Washington, ' nor Madi
son, nor Jackson. In wisdom and sagaci
ty he is not inferior to any of these, nor will
his purity and patriotism suffer in the com
parison ; but he has s-o peculiar a way of
saying and duing things, that their wisdom
is not immedlatly apparent ; yet when those
words and actions are more closely scanned
and considered, even those who at first se
vereby criticised, are often constrained to
admit that both were just right, aud said or
done at exactly the right time. Rarely in
deed is it that men placed in circumstances
so difficult and trying, have been obliged to
take so few retrograde steps. 'Slow and sure'
is an old and homley, IM aii expressive
phrase, and none better expresses t lie gen
eral tenor of Mr. Lincoln's conduct during
this period of unparalleled agitation. None
blamed his sureness, but thousands of his
more ardent friends scolded him fir his slow
ness. Rut had he not been slow as he was,
could he have been so sure ? We think not;
and very likely, when the tempest subsides,
and men can calmly review the fearful
drama, and see the begining and the end,
they will confess that he was fast enough.
Mr. Lincoln, ever since he was in the
exalted and trying place to which his coun
try called him, has uniformly and humblv
ackowledged his dependence upon the Su
preme Ruler of the Universe, and often, in
terms of eloquence and fervor, has he called
upon his countrymen to prostrate themselves
before Him in humble supplication and
thanksgiving. "With his blessing success
is certain." were his words, in taking'lenve
of his friends and neighbors in Springfield,
when he begged their prayers in his behalf.
Little did he or they imagine the terrible or
deal through which he was about to pass ;
but his words have been verified. The
prayers he invoked were answered, and he
has succeeded.
In a word, our present chief magistrate is
just the man for such a crisis as this; for
he is alike incapable of being a popular idol, a
tyrant, or a tool. His are not the shining, but
the homely virtues. He is honest, yet keen
ly sagacious ; kind, but not weak ; a states
man, without either professing or appear
ing to be .so ; strong, yet so flexible that lie
bends before that which would break a more
stubborn nature ; and really great, without
the usual dazzling concomitants of greatness.
The name of a more brilliant, or of a more he
roic character than he, would, if occupying
his place, have gone down on the record of
fame as the saviour of his country, as Wash
ington is called its father ; but Lincoln
will be regarded only as the Heaven-appointed
instrument of its salvation, thus verify
ing the declaration of an ancient prophet,
"The Lord alone shall be exalted in that

For the satisfaction of inquiring friends of
all parties, we print the following official
statement of the Secretary of the Common
wealth, concerning the vote of Pennsylva
nia at the October election :
Harrisburo, Pa., Nov. 16, 1864.
To the Editor of the N. Y. Tribune:
tSir: The statement made in "The Tri
bune" a few days since that the Democrats
had several hundred majority on the 'Home
vote," as east in Pennsylvania, has brought
hundreds of letters from without the State
for certified copies of the "Home vote."
To save a very large correspondence, will
you please to state that the official vote, as
certified to this office, from most of the coun
ties, includes the entire vote, without any
thing to distinguish between the votes pol
led at home and those in the army.
I have made application to the Prothono
taries for separate returns, but am told that
they have given the returns as certified to
them by the Return Judges, and that as
that body has adjourned -sine ilie, there is no
way of getting them together again. It is
therefore impossible to obtain the official
"Home vote" from a number of the coun
ties, and as the vote was so close as to re
quire the official returns to decide it, the
fact as to who had the majority can never
be known nor officially announced.
The "LTe-me" and Soldiers' vote combin
ed, as returned for Members of Congress,
is as follows :

Another Centenarian Voter. Mr.
Win. M'Farland, of Cowanshannock town
ship, Armstrong count jr, is, we are irrorm
ed: 104 years of age, and, for one of his
years, is still quite rigorous. He voted lor
Ceu. Washington, and at even Presidential
election since. Like Deacon Phillips, and
numerous other patriarchs, he voted on the
8th instant, for Abraham Lincoln. He
abominates rebels and their aiders and sym
pathizers as he did the tories in his youth.
The pristine fires of patriotism still glow in
the breasts of the venerable men who parsed
through the linry ordeal of the Revolution.
May they all live to see our present terrible
ordeal safely passed, and permanent union
and peace restored. KiUannimj Pees.
Belmont alias Schoenbergeh, Bel
mont, the (rerniDii Jew, who was the Dem
ocratic party machine in this country in the
interest of the Rothchilds and European
monarchists, does business under :t sort, of
boiru.s name, according to the Brooklyn
Tinif. That paper asserts that Belmont's
real name is Srmrnhnrfr,; and the name
Helmmd is a French translation. He seems
to he ashamed of his, German origin, and
rightly enoutrh the loyal Germans are asham
ed of him. He is t lie man who, aided by
the Rothschilds, does more to keep up the
price of gold in this country than probably
any dozen other men. Tt is about time
Americans were ashamed of him, as well as
the Germans.
Heavy Reward. On Saturday nieht.
10th four prisoners escaped from the county
jail in ireensburL'b, in this State. The
most important, of the fugitives is William
Campbell, who was couvicted of murder,
and awaiting the result of a new trial. He is
about fifty years of age, square set, and
walks lame. He had on solbier's pants

dollars is offeni for his return to prison by
the Sheriff. The names of the other pris
oners are Clark Wilson, Lewis Weaver
and J. Wilson. They are all charged with
larceny, and a reward of fifty dollars each
is offered for their appehension.
Meeting of Electors. The electors of
President and Vice-President meet on the
first Wednesday (the 7th) of December, at
the capitols of their respective States, to
cast their vctes, which are sent to the Pres
ident of the Senate, (the Hon. ITanibal
Hamlin,) and counted before both Houses
of Congress on the socond Wednesday- (the
8th) of February, 1865.
A High Compliment.
We observe that George Constantino, the
celebrated missionary of Greece, is transla
ting the "Pioneer Boy" the early life of
President Lincoln into the Greek language.
This is an endorsement such as an American
book rarely receives, and no higher personal
compliment could be paid to our great chief
magistrate. -
The Johnstown Democrat, the orean of the.
Copperhead Democracy in Cambria county'
has bidden its readers farewell. Its last
number was issued on Wednsday a-weck.
A concentrated and skillful attempt was
made on Friday night byseccssionist,thieves,
conspirators, and incendaries to set on fire
the priucipal hotels in New-York cit3",
though, fortunately without success in any
instance, the efforts of the conspirators being
in each case foiled by the early discovery of
the iires before the flames had gathered any
dangerous strength. So far as our present
information goes, the plan of ' operations
seems to have been for the incendary to pile
together in ome one of the upper rooms of
a hotel, bed clothes and other combustible
materials, and having soaked them with tur
pentine or sprinkled them with phosphorus
to set them on tire, then, having locked the
door, to disappear taking the key with him.
That the community has been saved from
the terrible loss of property and life which
might have been expected to attend such a
plot, by its fortunate and early discovery, is a
matter for profound thankfulness.
At 8:45 Fridav evening the news was tele
graphed to the different police stations that a
tire had been discoverd on the third floor of
the St. James Hotel, Twenty-six st. aril
Broadway. The room in which it was discov
ered was locked, and the on door being forced,
the bed was found sprinkled with phospho
rus, the bedchlothes and other articles in the
room piled together on the floor, with a
number of lueifer matches alight. Happily
the tire was soon extinguished, the damage
done being trifling.
At 8:45 p. in. IJarnum's Museum was
found to be on fire on the stairs leading to
the third floor. That was after a little trou
ble extinguished.
At 8:55 p. m. news came across the city
that rooms New. 130 and 140 of the St. Nich
olas Hotel were ou fire. The .same difficulty
with the doors was ere experienced, and on
forcing an entrance, when the flames were ex
tinguished similar trace of attempted arson
were found to exist. Both t he rooms were
badly burnt, the damage dune amounting to
nearly 2,500." The tire was extinguished
by the fire-brigade of the establishment,
under the direction of the proprietor.
At '.:20 fire was discoverd in one of the
rooms of t he Lafarge House ; a fire evidently
planned in exactly the same. manner. and at
tempted through the. same agencies of plios
1. horns arid turpentine, but being eaily dis
covered was put out with a trifline damage.
At 10:13 the Metropolitan Hotel was
found on fire ; the lire again being on one of
the upper floors, but being early discoverd
was easily put out. The damage in this s-;tse
will amount to more than 1.500. The tire
was in room No. 302.
At 10:30 p. in. a room on the fifth floor of
Lovejoy's Hotel, with dor locked, was
found in flames, to the great consternation
of the guests, many of whom had retired to
rest, but by the enerirctic. courageous and
persistant efforts of the dc nie-iics and Mr.
Huggins, the proprietor, the fire was got
under ttefore it hud spread to any other of
the rooms.
At 12 o'clock an alarm of fire was a second
time raised in Lovejoy's Hotel, when 'a room
on the forth floor was found on fire, flames
issuing fmm the bed. Alarm was siven ;r
once, and by the ciiorts of the people of the
house, assisted by such of the guests as
were on the spot, the fire was subdued.
At the Metropolitan Hotel a valise was
discoverd in the room which had been on
fire; in it some old clothes and a pair of old
gaiters soaked in some solution of phos
phorus, a solution so strong t hat when the
valise was taken to police headquarters,
and opened, and the gaiters thrown on the
floor, they burst into a flame.
About midnight a fire was discovered in
room No. 21 of the Belmont Hotel. Fulton-st..
but wa sooni:xtin.Lruis!ied. The damage will
not exceed 5o. The usu.nl Loltie of phos
phorus was discovered in between two beds
when the flames had been put out.
At 12:30 a. m. the firemen, returning
from the Belmont Il.nt.se, discovered flames
in one of the rooms on the fourth flour el
Tammany Hotel. On entering, the tire was
found to be in room No. 10S. The door was
locked, and the flames on cnu-rimr were
found to proceed from the bed as in the oth
er cases, the means of ignition being again
a bottle of phosphorus. The damaire will
perhaps epual 10!) from fire and water.
Two arrests were made last night by the
police. One was that id a woman who was
seen to leave the Sr. Nicholas shortly be
lore the fire was discovered, and was next
seen to leave the Lafarge Hn;i.-;-, when al
most immediately after her departure a fire
was discovered there also. The other per
son was a man, at present unknown, who
was arrested at the Metropolitan.
The manner in which the fires were pro
duced showed a preconcerted plan. In the
hotels, the beds, clothes, trunks, Jcc, were
covered with phosphorus. Matches were
also scattered in the beds.. The fires were
then set, and the rooms locked. As in the
July riots, the thieves swarmed about the
hotel doors, ready to rush in and plunder
when the fire was under way. But the
timely appearance of the police prevented
the programme from being carried out.
The panic at the Museum was great, but
fortunately the flames were quietly subdued.
The bottle which contained the phosphorus
was found, and is like those used by incen
diaries elsewhere. At the Winter Garden
a terrible panic was createted by some per
sons simply crying "fire!" The entire
Fire Department was aroused, and together
with the police, measures were adopted for
the safety of life and property for the re
mainder of the night. The attempt, which
was really well planned, failed. It has
shown what might be done, and will inspire
increased vigilance throughout the North.
On Saturday morning an examiuatiixi of
the Astor House took place to learn if any
attempt had been made to fire the building,
when, on opening room No. 204 an immense
volume of smoke poured out into the hall.
The fire had beeu smouldering through the
night. The floor was burned to a cinder.
The building was saturated with turpentine,
the chairs placed on the bed and the bed
cloths thrown over them. The raom had
been occupied by one person since the 20th,
and his arrest it is believed will soon be made.
A person in a Lieutenant's uniform, named
Allison, who occupied one of the rooms
fired, was arrested this morning. Arrange
ment have been made to-day for protection
against a repetition of the incendiarism.
Gen. Dix's order requiring Southerners to
register their names, and which has proved
almost a dead letter, will be strictly enforc
ed. It is reported that one of the chief con-1
spirators to burn the city has been arrested
another young man has. also been arrest
ed, in whose room some percussion caps and
cartridges were found.
James M. Kellogg, whose room was found
on fire at the Belmont Hotel last night, was
arrested on his return to the hotel at a late
hour. He protests his innocence, in the
matter, and says that he had not entered the
room after i is engaging it until his return,
nor had he heard anything of the lire.
The woman who was arrested at the La
frage I louse was discharged from custody
by Supt. Kennedy, she having been identi
fied as a respectable character by several well
known citizens. t seems the suspicions at
tached to her were owing to the fact that she
was seen to leave the St" Nicholas. Metro
politan and Lafrage Hotel just before the
tires took place. This has been satisfactori
ly explained by her statement, which has
been fully corroborated, that she was in
search of a clerk in A. T. Stewart's store,
of whom she had bought some goods during
the day, and whom she knew to be staying
at one of the hotels in question.
At every one of the hotels fired, the rooms
in which the fires were discovered had been
taken by persons carving black bags, similar
to the one found at the Metropolitan hotel,
which spontaneously ignited at the i olice
-Amid all the possible horrors of the night,
the affair of the ignition of this bag has a
ludicrous aspect ; for no suspicion was en
tertained of its fiery character, and officers in
the office wore startled by its suddenly burst
ing info flames, aft; r it. had been quiet'y
lying in a corner of the office for upwards of
an hour.
New York, Novemeer 27. It is ascer
tained that most of the persons engaged in
the attempt came from Canada, most of
them from Toronto and vicinity. Most of
the conspirators were officers in the rebel
army, and had served as guerrillas in Ken
tucky and Missouri.
The movements of the incendiaries were
arranged very unifurmilv. At each of the
hotels they appeared in the character of
travelers, desiring rooms for a few days.
They carried s.nall leather valises, entered
ficticious names on the hotel books, and
carried their own bagtrage to their rooms.
'1 he hotels so far discovered on fire were
the Astor. Belmont, Howard, ljoveiovs.
Tain many. Metropolitan. St. Nicholas. Fifth
Avenue, United States, New England, La
targe and St. James.
The original plan was simultaneously to
fire the hotels at the lower and upper parts
of the city, and while the fire department
and police had their attention attracted to
these portions of the city, to fire the hotels
and other puhlie buildings at the more cent
ral points. The next skq would have been
to fire the shipping, beginning with the hay
barges, along side of the ships and steam
ers. During this time three of the gang were
to attempt the destruction of the iron dads,
now in the harbor.
They had provided themselves with nu
merous appliances, among which was a
large quantity of gree k fire, and as nearly
as possible these steps were to be taken to
gether, or so close to each other as to ren
der detection by the police almost impos
sible. The failures, in nearly all cases, is attri
buted to the incendiaries neglecting to open
the windows. In every hotel the windows
and transoms were tightly closed, thus giv
ing no air to the flames.
Detectives say the whole force, detailed
for the work, had not arrived. The time
was fixed for the 4th of December, but fears
of discovery and frustration led to a prema
ture attempt.
If any tiling were njedod to point to the
authors of the deed .with unerring certainty,
it is to be found in the fact that one of the
New York hotels, somewhat notorious f r
the guests it usually shelters, seems to hare
been unmolested by th. incendaries. The
hole!, which was the headquarters of George
N. Siiunders, and the principal rebel refugees
of the South andtheir sympathizing friends
in the North, was passed over by the phos
phor illuminators. It is well to remember
also that we have long been threatened with
the conflagration of our principal Northern
cities by the Southern chivalry. Piracy of
the seas and robberies on the land are their
favorite methods of procedure. Bank rob
beries and conflagrations are the latest in
The chief conspirator is believed to be a
niemlier of Morgan's old command, and
one of the prisoner, it is said, who escaped
with others of Morgan's men from the
penitentiary at Columbus. Ohio. He was
captured on the blockade-runner Rouen,
while trying to make his way into the Con
feik'i aey to join his command, and was sent
to Fort Lafayette. While there be made
oath to being a British subject, an 1 a long

Seward and Lord Lyons in relation to him.
which resulted in his release from Fort La
fayette, about two weeks since. A' portion
of that time he'has been staying at the La
farge House, and was there, occupying room
No. 203, at time of his arrest.
New York. November 28. The police
are still at work ferreting out the incendia
ries in this city. Two more were arrested
this morning. In persuance of Gen. Dix's
order, Southerners arc flocking to his head
quarters to register their names. Mayor
Gunther sent a message to the Common
Council, recommending tho offering of re
wards amountingin the aggregate to $25,000.
Now and Then. Four years ago on
Tuesday, Nov. Sth, one vote wan given at
Kingston polls, Missouri, tor Abraham Lin
coln. The man who gave that vote was
Win. Spivcy, jr., now a veteran in the 13th
Missouri cavalry; and forgiving it he was
threatened with a coat of tar and feathers,
and a free ride upon a rail. Those were the
arguments used by slavery, when it had the
power, upon those who opposed it.
Last Tuesday, Abraham Lincoln received
at Kingston i Kills seventy-six votes, and but
six were given against him. What a migh
ty change! The six votes were cast for a
man who was known to be the friend of
slavery ; and yet, notwithstanding the polls
were surrounded by men, with muskets in
their hands, who had sworn eternal hostility
to the accursed institution which lias done
so much to drape their houses with mourn
ing, not a word was said nor a t! reat was
made against the ir.en who cast those six
votes. How different are the arguments
used by Freedom and slavery Kingston

Special advantages of this Lo:u:.
It is a National Savings Bank, offering s hi,"
er rate of interest than any other. nd Ti!r. f '
SEi'i niTV. Any savings bank which pays its
positors in U. S Notts, considers that it i'pay

it cannot pay in anything better, for its t
asset are either government securities or iu hi

tho actual profit on this loan, at the present bp

Its- exemption from State and Mn-.i-
oirAi. Tax ation. But aside from a:l the drai;ts
ges we have enumerated, a special Act of ' -
gress bbi-ts all bonds and Treasury aotei froa
local taxation. On the average, this exeui!''"
is worth about two per cent, per annum, .urc- r
ing to the rate of taxation in various part.-
the country.
It is believed that no secariiics offer .-0 r-J
inducements to lenders as those issued by the g"
eminent. In all other forms of indebtedness -J
faith or ability of private parties. or s ork con
nies. or seperate communities, oul is fi'ri
for payment, while tho whole property ut
country is held to secure the discharge of ail
obligationsof the United State?.
While the government offers the mist " "r
term for its Loans, it believes thnt ihu ,C'V
strongest appeal will be U the oyalty ana f a:rl"
otism of tho people. (
Iluplicato certificates will be issud for al ' r
posits. The party depositing must enJorw ui"
