CLEARFIELD, PA., DEC. 21. If 64.
-T2E ST. ALBAUS CASE.
The St. Albans murderers and robbers,
who were apprehended in Canada some time
since, hare been discharged by the Canadian
authorities on a plea of illegality in their ar
rest. The circumvanees attending the ar
rest may be stated brieSy as follows : Erer
sinie the commencement cf the war, our
-Northern frontier ha.? been threatened with
invasion by rebel refugees in Canada, but
our GoTernment could not plant cannon, nor
dispose of & military force for the defense of
the border without compromising its honor.
Certain rebels took advantage of this cir
cumstance and passed over the frontier line,
went to St. Albans, and committed an array
of crimes which, for horror and diabolism,
challenj the darict and most cruel barbar
ism having shot five persons, (two fatally)
robbed three baijks, stole some thirty hor
ses and much valuable property, and thtn
tc--k refuge in Canada. Subsequently they
were arrested al the instance of United
S'r. s c-xcers. and hel l for examination. A
CTwwJ of witnesses were on hand to give
thrir u-iol:e-i testimony ssrainsi the r-ris-
was disx'Tt-red that the first war
rant for the arrest of the raurderc-rs was il
legaL and it was set aside. Another was ob-tainc-i
from Justice Cocbsal, who, after a
delay of one month, pretends to have dis
covers! that he too had issue-i warrant il
legally, because he had not received any
warrant 'ira the Governor Genera!, who
only could assume jurisdiction iu the case or
authorize the Court so to do, and hence he
has discharged the prisoners on all the war
rants. They are now at large.
As soon as the action of the Canadian au
thorities was announced in New-York, Gen
eral Dix, believing it to be his duty to pro
tect the citizens along the border in his i;ii!
itary district, Issued a proclamation, of which
the following passag i is the essential part :
"All military commanders in the future
are therefore instructed, in case further acts
of depredation and murder are attempted,
whether by marauders or i-ersons acting uu
der couimis.-iutjs from the rebel authorities
at Richmond, to -hoot down the perpetra
tors if possible while in the commission of
their crinic-, or if it he nectary, irith a
vif c to their capture, to cro.s the boundary
L'.tucten the Lnittd States ami Ca nadii.ua d
commanders are herebg directed to jtii.rxi.te
them wherever they may tal;e, refuge, and if
cjjfiired t.'uy are undtr ho circumstances fit
Ire. surrendered, but are to be Mirrendercd to
these head quarters for trial and punishment
by martial Iutf."
That this order, or one equally comprehen
sive and determined, was eminently neces
sary and proper, no patriotic man will dis
pute. If rebel refugees make Canada an
Asylum, and the officers of the provincial
government will permit them to invade our
territory and destroy the property and the
lives of our people with impunity, then it
becomes our duty to protect ourselves ; but,
jn doitg this, it does not necesari!y follow
that we must cross the line, and invade the
territory of our neighbor.
Que other point may be worth- of men
tion. The conduct of Judge Oursal, in the
.St. Albans case, would indicate that there is
a decided inclination on the part of some of
the Canadian officials to involve England
and.the United States in a war, or else they
have a very reckless, disregard for the peace
and safety of their own citizen". How long
uch a state of affairs can exist without a
collision between the two sections, remains
to be demonstrated; but one thing is cer
tain, that sooner or later the rebels and their
sympathisers in Canada will succeed in pre
cipitating a war upon us, unless England
will take immediate and prompt measures to
prevent these marauding expeditions from
being fitted out in h.?r dominions, in the fu
ture. - However juucli a collision might be
deprecated, yt it is the duty of our Na
tional government to protect the lives and
property of its citizens aga.;nst destruction
and invasion, etveu though it should involve
us in another war .with Great Britain. W e
sincerely trust, however, th-st the two low
ers may come .to An iionorable unde rstand-,
ing as racanl the impeucLng difficulties, and
that the calamity of war will be averted.

6E2TEEAL DIX3 OEDES.
The decision of Judge Coarsal, of Mon
treal, in the case of tbeSt. Albans raiders,
and the consequent order of General Dix,
gTeatly simplify the question towHebtbe
case has given rise between the two govern
ments. The course hitherto pursued by our
National authorities was of the most mild
and amicable nature the case would admit,
for that now taken by. Gen. Dix might have
been adopted at the outset, as it is in ac
cordance with the acknowledged principles
of International Law. Piullimore, a wri
ter of authority, vol. 1, p. 227, says:
"A rebellion or a civil commotion it mar
happen agitates a nation ; while the author
ities are engaged in repressing it. bands of
rebels pass the frontier to shelter themselves
under the protection of the conterminous
atate.and from thecce, with restored strength
and fresh appliances, renew thejr invasion
upon the State from which they have escap
ed. The invaded ; tate remonstrates. The
remonstrance, whether from favor to rebels
or feei-leness of the Executive, is unheeded,
or at least the evil complained of remains
unredressed. In this state of things the in
vaded State is warranted bylcternational Law
in crossing the frontier, and in taking the
necessary means for her safety, whet her these
be the capture or dispersion of the rebels, or
the destruction of their stronghold as the
exigencies of the case may require'
Thus it will be seen that Gen. Dix's order
is based upon international law, and may
possibly prevent any further marauding ex
peditions being fitted out in Canada. In
deed, late intelligence from Montreal indi
cates that it created quite a commotion a
niong the prominent men in that province,
who. it is said, condemn the action of J udge
Coursal and favor his removal, as well as the
re-arrest of the released murderers. If this
be done, it will be a check upoa further
raids on our border : if not, Judge Coursal's
action will give new encouragement to the
rebels, under the inference of protection by
the Canadian courts, to continue their dep-.
redations upon the citizens of the United
States, and thus place Canada in an attitude
j of hostility to our Government, but little
behind that of the rebel Stares at the pres
ent moment. In this a-pect of affairs, it
behooves our National and State authori
ties to be vigilant, and to pursue such a
course as to them may seem best to guard
against future rebel incursion from Canada.
Sixteenth Concessional District.
Go Ccktin has for several days been en
gaged in the examination of testimony in
the case of the .Sixteenth Congressional Dis
trict. On Wednesday the evidence adduced
before the Governor and the Attorney Gener
al, leaves no doubt that the object was to
cheat General Koontz. The returns on
which a certificate was issued for Coffkotu
were incomplete, in so far that they did not
embrace the vote of Soiijerset county.
Wherein this case differs fVotn that of the
Twenty-first District, is here : In the latter
District there was but one return, and that
fur Dawson. Behind this the Governor
could not go. If the return is wrong Con
gress, not the Governor, has the power to
right it. In the Sixteenth District there
were two returns, and Governor Ctrtix is
about to decide which is the right one, as
he necessarily t:mt.
The Installation of Chief Justice Chase.
A dispatch of the loth says: Chief Jus
tice Ciiasf. took the oath to-day and enter
ed ujon the duties of his high office. The
Court came into the Chamber as usual, ac
companied by Mr. Chase. The Clerk then
read his commission, signed by the I'reM
deut and Secretary of State. Mr. Chase
then read the oath of office himself, there of
course, being no judicial officer higher than
he to administer it. As he came to the con
clusion of the oath, he laid it down and
said, raising his right hand, "So help me
God." lie then took his seat on the bench,
robed in a black si!k feown, as is the custom
with all of the judges, and the buisness ot
the court preceded as usual. The scene was
witnessed by the leading members of the
bar now in the city, by several Senators and
Members of the House and a large concourse

A Good Measure.
. In the Lower Branch of Congress a bill,
naturalizing all soldiers of twenty-one years
of age who have t?en honorably discharged
from the army, navy or marine corps, with
out any previous declaration, has passed. It
is a fitting tribute to" those brave men who
have endured the hardships of military life
and exposed themselves to deadly perils for
the sake of the country. If any men have
fairly earned the right to exercise, in the
spediest possible time the privilege of suf
frage, those men are the soldiers of the U
nion army. Our people are properly evinc
ing their sense of the services of our officers
by giving them swords, houses and public
receptions. It is well to do something sub
stantial for the rank and file.
Detroit, December 16. A terrible acci
dent occurred on the Grand Trunk Railway
last night, caused by the collision of the
Western-bound passenger train with a
freight train, near this city. After the col
lision, the cars took fire,and several wounded
persons, - being unable to extricate them
selves from the wreck, were burned to death.
Two persons are known to have suffered
death in this manner, and it is reported that
others were killed. ' . The full extent of the
loss" of life is not ascertained.

The Proposed Tax on Sales.
The recommendation by the Commission
er of Internal Revenues of a tax on Eales,
is based by the assumption that the produc
tion of the loyal States in taxable articles,
in 1S63, amounted to three thousand seven
hundred millions of-dcUars in the prices of
1560. Large quantities of these products
such as grain, hay, pork, beef and fruit, are
consumed without sale, while the residue of
these articles art jsold once or twice. or thrice.
j Textile fabrics are" sold five, six or seven,
times before being consumed. It is c-stima-
ted l y economists and statisticans that the
I productions of a country are sold four times,
! and that three-fourths of them enter the
market. On this basis of calculation, the
sales of merchandise and products in the
lo3"al States in a year, would amount to elev
en thousand millions of dollars. A tax of
one-half of one per cent, on this amount
would produce fifty-five millions.
This tax on sales is recommended by the
Commissioner of Internal Revenue, to
make up" the deficit of thirty-five millions
which he reports will exist in the esti
mated product of our Excise system on the
Uuth of Jure, 1?05. and to provide the
Treasury with a balance to make up three
hundred millions required by its needs and
the engagements which the Secretary has
made. The tax is proposed xs a temporary
exjvedient only. It is recommended on the
economical principle laid down by Adam
Smith, that "every tax ought to be levied
at the time and in the manner in which it is
most likely to be convenient for the contrib
tor to pay it." The teller will add the tax
to the price, and thus anticipate the claim of
the Government, and the purchaser, when
he buys to sell, will be reimbursed by the
consumer, who will assume the bu den as a
voluntary act, and proportion the weight -to
his ability to carry it. The tax, moreover,
is recon, mended by the Revenue Bureau for
the facility with v hich its basis may be as
certained, and for its freedom from the per
plexing and complicated inquiries to which
income an I profits are necessarily subjected.
It is preferable to a supiementary duty on
incomes. It is also preferable to a direct im
p..t. which being payable out of capital and
not out of profits, will be justly regarded as
objectionable, and should .be avoided.
Formidable Expedition Departed.
Nf.w-Vork, December . The Times
has the following official, dated Cape Henry,
Dec 12: A large naval fleet accompanied
with land forces iu transports, left Hampton
Roads this morning, steering in a southerly
direction. The largest jortion of the army
transports left during the night. At this
writing the flag ship Malvern and several
of the larger vessels of the fleet are in the
Roads, but as the sailing orders have been
signalled, they will probably et under way
in a short time. The iron clads attached to
the fleet were the first to move. The single
turreted monitors go out in tow of the
steamers. The Ironsides and the double
turreted monitor. Manadonick, propel iheni
selves. Our ilace of destination .will be
made known to the public at the' proper
time. Suffice it to rental k that ample prep
aration has been made to warrant a vigor
ous and formidable attack on the enemy's
works. In all probability, a few days hence
will give me an opportunity cf sending you
full details of the expidition.
Thedestination of this expedition, itseems
to le, is Willmington, North Carolina.
Protecting the Border.
The New Vork Corari.ercial, in view of
the present aspect of the St. Albans case,
thinks that we want on the border some
thing "more forcible than the 'Veteran Re
serves,' for there may be. rough work some
of these days. Senator ChamiLLR ha3 in
troduced a resolution for the recruiting of a
new army corps for frontier defence. Such
a corps could be soon organized and made
ready to prevent the hostile entrance of our
Canada neighbors and their guests, or to
cl ae them even to Moutreal or Quebec if
tiecessar-. " It is asserted as the belief at
Washington that the Canadian authoritiei
are disposed to do all in their power to pre
vent piratical demonstrations. Neither is it
any secret that arrangements are being per
fected for keeping an efficient armed force
all ahng the border, to capture any hostile
parties who may be disposed to come South
ward on a raid.
A Providence (R. I.) correspondence
tells of a man in that City who is taxed for
$700,000. Some years since,one of his debt
ors failed and settled with him by giving
him a few shares in a screw company, and
this is what has built up his fortune. It is
not usual for a company to pay ten jer
cent, per month, for months in succession.
A Bicj thing. The Tribune s Japan cor
respondence says ; "In the attack of the al
lied fleet upon the city and forts at the en
trance of the inland sea, the shells from the
fleet set the city on fire. It raged for two
entire days, destroying 78,000 houses and
temples, and 3,700 warehouses about five
sixths of the city."
Dctch Gap Canal. A City I'oiut letter
says that the fall earth is to be blown out of
Dutch Gap Canal. The whr le depth of cut

thirty feet wide. The canal will have eigh

An unofneial dispatch gives the following
details: Nashville, Tenn., December 15.
At 1:35 V. M. our line advanced and en
gaged the rebel line at nine o'clock this
morning. The line was formed 'thus : Steed
man on the left; T. J. Wood, with the
Fourth Corps, next; H. J. Smith next,
with Cox in reserve ; nest came the cavalry,
under Wilson, firhting dismounted, occupy
ing the extreme right, aided by the gun
boats, oa the river.
The artiller' practice has been fine, and
at times the musketry. The firing was con
tinuous and heavy, and though the casual
ties wc-re groat the results were fair. The
left occupying the same ground as at morn
ing, but the right has advanced five miies,
driving the enemy from the river and from
his entrechments, and from the range of
hills on which his left rested. an d forced 1 .-ack
upon his rL'ht and centre, and pushed him
back from one to three miic, with a los- of
about fifteen hundred prisoners and his whole
line of earthworks, except a!-ut a mile, on
his extreme right, where no serious attempt
was made to dislodge him.
The whole of Hood's army is here, ex
cept the cavalry and one divi-ion which has
been detailed to be at work ou Murf reesboro.
On the whole, the action of to-day was suc
cessful. The division commanded by Gen
eral Kimball, of the 4th corps, by General
Garaid, of the command uuder General II.
J. Smith, and the cavalry division under
General Knipe, were under my observation
and I have never seen better work.
General Kimball's division carried two
fortifications by assault, with very slight
loss, and captured at one point four bund- j
red prisoners and six guns. No doubt the
other parts of the line did as well. I only
speak of what I saw.
(Signed) K. S. Toivnsenp, A. Gen.
Oa Friday morning Geu. Thomas renew
ed the conflict During the night previous
Hood withdrew his right wing from the riv
er and took up a new position, covering the
Ilillsboro, White and Franklin pikes, which
line had been carefully prepared for the pres
ent contingency. Our men flushed with vic
tory on the day previous pushed forward gal
lantly and in good spirits. They soon came
ujvau and carried the first line of rebel en
trenchments, easily, but the second line was
more stubbornly defended. Three heavy as
saults were made before it was carried. On
the third assault, however, the relel lines
were broken, and twelve pieces of cannon !
and two thousand men, including Geu. Jack
son, with the remnant of his command were
taken. The enemy was forced back two
miles and his army broken in two parts
one being forced to the White pike and the
other to the Franklin, with a range of bluffy
hills between them. Steadman and Wood
pursued the enemy down the White pike,
and A. J. Smith, Scofield and tie -cavalry
down the Franklin. Hoods army must
have been perfectly demoralized, as small
arms lay nearly as thickly on the contested
line as the rebels had stood there. Thomas
captured some 5,000 pi isoners, and 39 guns,
besides wagons and other pararhernaliu of
war. Our whole loss, in killed, wounded
and missing, in the two days fight, will not
Gen. Thomas is still in pursuit of Hood's
retreating army. Near Frankliu he captur
ed the rebel hospitals with about 1,500
wounded, and over 1,000 prisoners and five
battle flags. It is estimated that Hood's
loss, wnce his advance upon Nashville from
Columbia, will exceed 15,000. Thomas is

SAVANNAH CLOSELY BESEIGED.
Sherman's Amy in Splendid Condition.
DISPATCII FROM SHERMAN.
Some days since a report of the capture
of Savannah and 1,100 prisoners was cur
rent, which it now seems was only the cap
ture of Fort McAllister near that city. An
official dispatch has been received from Gen.
Foster, who had a personal interview with
Gen. Sherman, on Wednesday the 14th.
at Fort McAllister, which had teen taken
by assault cu the proceeding day. Savan
nah is closely beseiged, and its capture,
with 15.000 rebel troops under Hardee, is
confidently expected. The citv was to be
summoned in two days, and if not surren
dered. Sherman would open his batteries
upon it. Gen. Foster reports that Sher
man's army is in splendid condition, having
met with perfect success on its long march,
and that it lived all the while on turkeys,
chickens, sweet potatoes, aud other good
things of the richest part of Georgia.
Ox Board the Dandelion, Ossatjaw
Sound, December 13, U:CO P.M. To-day,
at five l. M., Brig. Gen. Hazen's division,
of the 15th corps, carried fort McAllister by
assault, capturing its entire garrison and
stores. This opened to us the Ossabaw
Sound, and I push.id'down to this gunboat
for c-otiiKiutiieatlons with the f :-tt. Before
opening communications we h:td conirlett'y
destroyed all railroads running into Savan
nah, and invested the city. The left is on
the Savannah river.lburmilesabove the citv,
and the right on the Ogeechee at King's
bridge. The army is in splendid order, j
Weather fine. Supplies abundant. j
Our march was most aereeable, and not j
inuiesuru u 'lerrn us. nc react: mu
nah three d u s ai'O, but owing to fort McAl
lister could not communicate. But now we
hare McAllister and we can go ahead. We
have already captured two boats on the Sa
vannah river, and prevented their gunboats
from coming down. I estimate the iopula
tion of Savannah at 25,'.t, and the garrison
at 15.0u. Gen. Hakijee commands.
We have not io.st a wag-.ti.oit th trip, but
have gathered in a largo supply of negroes,
mules and horses. Our teams are in better
condition than when we started. My first
dutj wiil be to clear :he army of surplus ne
groes, mules and horses. We have utterly
destroyed over 2.uu miles of railroad, and
consumed stores and provisions that were
asstntial to Lee's and IIuhd's armies. The
quick work made with McAiiisYer, uni the
opeuing of communication with our fleet,
and the cott.sequ-eut iodt--eiiJeiee fW 'sup
plies, dissipate all their boasted threats to
head me off and; starve the army. I regard
Savannah as already gained.
Yours,tru!y, W. T. Sherman, Maj.-Gcn.
Sherman's march through Georgia w as a
lerf'ect success. He met with scarcely uny
resistance. There was no fighting that would
rise even to the dignity of a skirmish.
The army was in the best cf spirits during
the entire march living upou the richest
products of the territory through which
they passed. The only supplies issued by
Sherman's commissaries was coffee and hard
tack. His entire loss in killed, wounded
and stragglers does not exceed oue thousand,
while he brought with him six thousand ne
gnes and two thousand prisoners, besides a
large number of horses and mules. The in
habitants of Georgia, iustead of burning
their barns and obstructing the roads, as di
rected by their leaders, fled in dismay and
terror as our soldier advanced, on their tri
umphant march to the coast. It is confi
dently expected that Savannah will be ta
ken within a very .hort time.
General Foster's I-Iovement.
The New York Herald's Hilton Head
correspondence of the 8th, says the list of
casualties in the battle of Honey Hill have
been revised and reduced to 740. It is on
ly half a "mile from the Savannah and
Charleston Railroad, and not only the
whistles of the locomotives, but the rumb
ling of the trains can be distinctly heard.
Further up the Tillifinney river, on the right
of the road upon which General Potter
marches, we have taken possession of a
landing at Gregory's plantation, which was
evacuated in a hurry when our troops ad
vanced. From thtnee the supplies are for
warded to the front. A detachment of
troops was landed at Mackay's Point on
Wednesday morning, which proceeded up
the opposite shore from Gregory's planta
tion, and entrenued on a point there for
the protection of our flank. The gunboats
also co-operate for the protection of our
flanks and landings, and the naval brigade,
under Commodore Preble, is doing efficient
service on shore. Gen. Hatch went to the
front from Boyd's Neck on Wednesday
morning. By rapid and fetrategic move
ments from the right to the left, we have
succeeded in obtaining a position from which
we can command, as soon as our heavy guns
go up, two bridges and some miles of the
