UNION REPUBLICAN STATE TICKET.

Haj.'Gen. JOHN W. GEAEY, of Ovmb. Oo.
. , Mr. Clymer at Home. . :
The Reading Journal gives the statistics
f Mr. Clymer's popularity at home, which
resents the following record :
Ia 1850 Heister Clymer was a. Whig,
lie wai in October ot that year, the Whig
candidate for the Legislature. Wm. H.
Keira was the Whig candidate for Congress,
. it the same election. The vote of the
Whig party, in Berks county," was as fol
Sws: Wm: II. Keim, had votes ' 4,847
ileister Clymer, " " , ' 3,338
Clynier behind his party vote . 1,509
In' 1857 Heister Clymer. seeing no chance
of election on any party opposed to the: de
mocracy, joined the party that controls the
, elections in Berks county, and in I860 he
was the candidate of that party for the State
Senate. . Henry D. Foster, at the same
'.election, wis their candidate for Governor.
The vote in Berks county, at that poll, was
' Henry D. Foster's majority 3,485
. Heister Clymer's ; " 2,831
Clymer behind his party ticket1 654
In 1863 Heister Clymer was again behind
. his party vote. The evidence is on record,
that neither while in the Whig, nor yet in
' the Democratic party, has he ever polled
his full party vote, clearly showing his , un
popularity . at home, . and our friends- in
Berks county assure us that the result in
. Did Berks, on the second Tuesday of Octo-
ber, will be no exception to the rule.
The increaace of the Cholera in the hospi-
- tal ship below New York, carries with it an
' admonition which should be heeded by the
people of every city and town in the United
States. It cannot be much longer before the
cholera takes hold of the population wallow
ing, as it were, in the alleys and cellars of
New York now reeking with filth. , Once
there, its communication to other portions
of the country will be speedy and sure. Let
- m not delude ourselves that we shall escape
: the scourge. Let us rather prepare to de
fend our households against its visitation.
Wur did Heister Clymer Resign ?
..The Harrisburg Telegraph says that Mr.
- Clymer's motive for resigning his seat in
. Senate, as defined by one who knows, was
to enable him to escape a vote on the bill
,-. changing the time cf labor from ten to eight
hours per day. - The bill providing for this
change had already passed the House and
when Clymer resigned was before, the Sen
( ate. , Mr. Clymer did not dare to face the
music.- Mechanics should remember this.

The Congressional Plan The Constitutional
Amenament passed by the House Sharp
Parliamentary tactics Enthusiasm on the
' Floor and in the Galleries. ; , k
' Special Dispatch to Pittsburg Commercial
' Washington, May 10th. The Constitu
tional Amendment passed the , House this
afternoon, amid the usual scenes of intense
excitement that accompany so important an
event. It not only passed without amend
ment, and just as it came from the Recon
struction Comuiitte, but secured a large ma-,
jority over the requisite two-third vote.
This was contrary to the anticipations of the
most ardent friends of the amendment; It
was in fact a strict party vote, with the ex
ception of G. C. Smith of Kentucky, and
Phelps of Maryland, who voted with the
Democrats against it. There was, however,
a sharp exhibition of parliamentary tactic?
that should not be lost sight of. When the
House was to be brought to a vote, a large
number of Republicans were opposed to or
dering the main question, and voted with
the Democrats against it. They did so .on
the ground that u the main question was
determined on, there would be no opportu
nity to strike out the third section, which
di-franchises all rebels until 1870. The re
tention of this section was looked upon by
many as being fatal to the ratification by
anv Southern State of the amendment
"When roll-call was completed, it was mani
fest that the opponents ot the third section
had carried the motion, and that the main
question bad not been, ordered.
The Democrats instantly saw the oppor
tunity to change the result and force the
Republicans to vote for or against the a
mendment as a whole, with the third section
retained. Thereupon Messrs. Niblack, Rog
ers, Kerr and other Democrats changed
their votes to the affirmative, which carried
the motion by five majority, and forces both
Houses to a direct vote on the main question.
There was great confusion and excitement
at this moment, as nearly two-thirds of the
members were out of their seats. The roll
call was proceeded with, and the Republi
cans met the issue and voted solid ibr the
amendment, with the exception of the two
members already named. When the name
of Mr. Raymond was reached he answered
to the great surprise of the House in the
affirmative. His vote was warmly applaud
ed, and members rushed around and con
The result was received with great ap
plause on the floorand in the galleries. Mr.
Eldridge thereupon arose excitedly and
hoped that the rules would be enforced, so
that the " 'nigger-heads, " as he called the
spectators could not disturb the House,
lie was answered by the spectators, wiih a
storm of hisses. Mr. Rogers.of Ne v Jersey,
thereupon arose and moved that the freed
men in the galleries be allowed to wave
their handkerchiefs. -This -was received
with mingled applause and hisses, and ad
ded to the confusion. Finally, order was
restored, and in the exuberance of its feel
ing the House adjourned until Monday.

received this morning letters from several
Memphis correspondents, whose names are
not given lest they might fall victims to the
mob. Une writer, .spoakins ot the mob,
says : ."Aside from being niid night burners
"of churches and school-houses, they robbed
women and children and men sparing

, Hon. W. D. Kelley : am thus far on my

ot these outrages were committed by ; the
police themselves all Irish and all rehelt,
and mostly drunk. Ihis is not the half I

seen. Ihe most prominent citizens stand

COHTESSIOU OF PEOBST .
" He alona Murdered the Dealing Family,
i The Philadelphia Inquirer' of Tuesday
morning, May 1st, contains a phonographic,
and therefore complete report of the con
fession. ; From it we learn that Anton
Probst is a native of Baden, aged twenty
four years, and arrived in this country on
the 9th of May, 1863. The afternoon of
his arrival he enlisted in the forty-first New
York Infantry, served nine months, deserted
and re-enlisted in the twelfth Pennsylvania
cavalry, from which he subsequently de
serted and again enlisted in the fifth Penn
sylvania cavalry, from which; he was dis
charged May i2Sth.- 1865.". He worked at
odd jobs in New York, New Jeisey, Mary
land and about Philadelphia until last win
ter, when he was employed by Mr. Dear
ing, for whom he worked three weeks. He
was ordered to do some work in a field on a
rainy day, which he refused to do, and said
he would leave, when Mr. Hearing paid him
and he left He had seen Mr. Hearing
counting a large sum of money, and he re
turned tx Dearing's on the 2d of February,
having made up his mind, he said, to get
seme of the money, Mr. Dearing again
gave him work, and now commenced
HIS NEFARIOUS SCHEMES.
' I was watching an opportunity some time,
to get hold of this money. (The prisoner
kept on slowly, drawing deep breaths for a
; I planned every day to get the money.and
never had a chance. ;I never thought of
murdering before the morning I murdered
theni. I had tried no way to get the money
before that . .
Mr. Perkins, Jr. Probst, what did you
say before, about eight days before the mur
. Probst Yes ; eight or ten days before I
ha.l thought of that, of murdering him and
the whole family. My first plan was to kill
him and get the noney; Icouldnotgct
the money any other way. I thought of
killing them in the. house, as they -came
down in the morning. I got the axe some
times ready for them when they came down,
in the evenings sometimes. I did not do it
then ; I never could do it. I got some
times a good chance, but my heart failed it.
Dearing was home always in the evening.
HOW THE HORRIBLE MCRDER3 WERE DONE.
That morning was dark, raining and cold,
and Dearing went to the ci tj ; then I made
up my mind to do it that day ; 1 calculated
to kill Dearing as he came home ; I did not
know whether the money was in the house
or not ; I did not know whether he had it
THE KILLING OF THE BOY CORNELIUS. fc
Me and the boy were working outon the
bank : we went to work that morning about
7! or .8 o'clock, I guess; Mr. Dearing went
up to the city before we went out ; . he said
he would be back about one o'clock , we
went to work in the meadow about one hun
dred yards from the hay stack ; we took the
horse and cart and went to work together;
I took with me to kill him the axe, the big
axe for cutting roots out also.
We were standing under the big tree
when I killed him ; it was raining a little ;
he sat down under the tree, and I stood
above him, behind him, with the axe in my
hand ; he sat there and talked of something
about work while I stood right behind him ;
I was going to kill him, and drew my hand
back three or four times ; I hit him on the
left side of the head ; he did not hollow ;
he fell down ; I gave him one or two more
blows, and then cut his throat ; he bled
much (the prisoner stopped, looked down
on the rosary) on the tree ; I lifted him up,
and put him into the cart ; he had the strap
every time round him, to keep hi3 coat up :
that was all in full view of Mr. Wiles
house; I waa-not afraid of them seeing me;
I looked first; then I drove the horse up,
and lifted him up and laid him on the hay
stack, and covered him up witli hay; there
was a littleblood on the cart ;'I took a little
hay and wiped jt off ; I took some outsi Je
hay and threw it over him.
BUTCHERY OF THE MOTHER : AND LITTLE
Then I went, took the axe with me to the
house, and also took the horse with me ;
this was about after ten o'clock in the
morning; I came to the house with the
horse and cart, and I had a little- load of
wood on the cart and put the wood down in
the yard ; I left the horse and cart stand at
the machine house ; . did not unhitch the
horse ; I went into the stable and laid the
two axes and hammer in the corner, right
on the left comer,- near the narrow door
that faces the ditch v well then I would go
over in the house and had a little blood on
my pants ; I took hay and took it off; then
I went oyir in the house and the children
were all in the house, and the woman wa3
out at the dicth for water. ' ' ' r, ,
' I took the oldest boy, John is his name,
and told him to go over in the stable and
help mi with something I had to do; he
goes ; I stoodinside - the door, got my axe
in my hand, , the little axe, and then he
comes in ; through the long entry first he
comes, right on the corner ; 1 knocked him
down and he fell inside, where- the little
blood was ; he did not holler ; I gave him
one or two of the same, and cut and chop
ped his throat ; I brought him in, hauled
him in through the hole, and put a little hay
on him ; Then 1 put the axe to the same
Elace at the door ; then I came out in the
ouse and told - the woman to come over,
t here was something the matter with the
little horse, the colt, I could not tie it my
self. I went over, she comes In " two or three
minutes, alone ; I said nothing to her ; she
comes in the stable ; I stood inside and
struck her on the head , she did not holler :
I gave her two or three more" blows, and
chopped her throat; I took. her on my
shoulder and hauled her in : then I put the
axe in the same place as before, at the door.
Then I go over and bring the boy over
there, Thomas is his name, the next oldest :
I told him to come over, his mother wanted
to see him ; he walks right in the stable ;
when he comes in there I : killed hi m Kit
striking him in the same place ; nobody did
holler; I hit him on the head when he laid
down ; I hit him once more ; I do not know
whether I mashed his whole head in, I did
not examine him : I broneht him in th
same place with his mother then I left
the axe in the same place.
; THE LITTLE ONE.-- , ' - "
J Then I went over to the house and tnnt
Annie ; I told her her mother wanted to gee
her in the stable ; ' she did not say a Word
then I took the little baby ; I took it on my
arm ; the little girl walked alongside ot me i :
X left the baby on the first corner as you go
into the stable; t l ; left the little babv therp
playing-in thenar ; then I tu in the shuic -
place where" I killed the others ; she' looked
around like for her mother, who was in the
hay (smiling;) I was not warm ;. she did
not say anything; :I knocked her down at
the first blow, and cut her throat the same
as the others; then I went back and got the
little baby, and struck it on the head in
the same place ; then I hauled them in the
same place. ' ' . "
Then I took the new axe and washed it
off, and put it on the - bench in the porch,
and left the little axe in the stable, by the
door on the left side ; then I went overinto
the house, and stayed there watching for
him to come ; 1 1 did . not search the house
then. ' i I . t i v
SURDER OF MR! BEARING AND MISS DOLAN.
I guess about half past one o'clock, I do
not know the exact time, It aw him coming,
out of the window ; I looked through the
window and saw him coming, and went out
down stairs and saw Miss Dolan in the car
riage, and then I was worried ; . then I go
out of the house and stay outside until he
come ; when he is come with the carriage,!
stepped out to the carriage and told him
that the steer is sick over there in the sta
ble ; I told him he looks very bad, he had
better see him, I would like him to go over
and see him ; then he comes right away,
walking over there ; he lefPthe horse stand
ing there ; Miss Dolan went into the house
with all her clothes.
Then I went to the stable, and walked be
hind him ; I took the axe behind him in my
hand ; I walked behind him and hit at him
right on the head with the small axe ; he
fell right down on his face ; I turned him
over and gave him one or two more on his
head, and cut his throat, and chopped his
throat i he never spoke to me, or said a
word ; he told me was that steer hurt very,
bad ; he did not look so bad when I saw
him ; I will go right over to the barn and
see him ; then I put a little hay over him
and left him lay there ; I killed him at the
place where you go up to the hay mound,
where the blood is on the boards. I put a
little hay over him ; going out, 1 put my
axe in the same place, the small axe : I had
L the hammer there.
And then Miss Dolan : called me over to
the house; 1 said the horse would not stay
there ; I would walk around and put the
horse out of the carriage; I walked over
there and said Mr. Dearing wanted to see
her over in the stable ; she asked me where
the woman and the children are I told her
they. are all in the stable : (smiling) that is
all I talked to her; she walks right in the
stable ;': I took the hammer with my left
hand, and sbe was five or six feet inside the
door ; I hit her on the head once with the
hammer,andbhe fell right down on her face ;
I turned her round, hit her. once in the
bead, and took the little axe again and
chopped her throat ; then I went to Mr.
Dearing and took the watch and pocket book
from him and put them in my lnx-ket; and
then I went back to Miss - Dolan to see if
she Bad mouey ; I looked in the pocket and
took a potket book and put it in my pock
et; after that 1 took Mr. Dearing's boots
off, and laid him in the same place where
you found him and put Miss Dolan there,
and covered them up with hay. ;
THE HOUSE ROBBED AFTER THE MURDERS.
; Then I went out and shut thedoors ; went
horse into the stable, and took the gears off
of him: 1 gave the horse something to eat,
oats and corn ; then I shut ; the door and
went over to the house and put the carriage
in its place in the carriage house ; this was
about half past two .o'clock ; ; I cannot tell
exactly what time ; then 1 went into the
house inside, shut the door, and fastened
the door ; I took my pocket book out to
count the money ; I took, first the big pock
et book out. Mr Dearing's pocket book ;
I found ten dollars in it in greenbacks, and
ttvo two dollar notes, and a counterfeit three
dollar note ; that is all the money I saw;
I took Miss Dolan's pocket book, the little
one ; I opened it, and saw nothing in it but
postage stam ps ; I am certain there was
none in it" : I will not nowlie .
I thought they had much money (laugh
ing;) I left the watch and pocket book on
the table and went up stairs ; I found a
a pocket ; book of Mrs. Dearing's, that
little one on the bed there, with a yellow
clasp on it ; it had $3 in it, in greenbacks,
and about sixty-five cents in small change ;
under the bed there was a little revolver,
loaded ; I got down stairs ; I looked all over
and I cannot find more ; . I took the revol
vers down, and put them-, among the other
things; then I went up stairs and looked
all over ; I searched about but I cannot find
any other thing ; I took the three shirts,
and pants and vest down stairs ; and after
that I shaved myself with Dearing's razor,
the one in the carpet bag : then I washed
myself, and dressed . myself, and put his
clothes on ; then I eat something, bread
I saw the big butcher knife on the man
telpiece many a time before, but I did not
notice it that time, and did not put itthere:
then I eat. something (bread, and butter,)
and went up stairs again ; ' looked all over
again,' apd did not find anything ; I ook all
I could in my carpet bag down stairs; Miss
Dolan's carpet bag, and packed it up. and
made ready to go way with ; I staid in the
evening until 6 or 6J o'clock ; it was not
very dark then ; about sunset ; I did not
then see anybody coming through the yard ;
Ejhad the doors locked, and the window,
too, in the yard ; I had nothing to defend
myself in case anybody came.
Probst also gave a detailed account of his
flight and carousings up to the time of his'
arrest He then remarked :
"After I killed the first boy I did not
care if a hundred" were there ; if a hundred
had gone there I would have killed them all
without caring ; I do not know why I felt
that way- I had no feeling against the fam
ily, only I wanted the money ; they always
treated me well.
- "I feel better since I have told the truth
about this thing ; I feel relieved ; "I was
afraid to say it at first afraid of being
lynched, afraid of the crowd, and that the
police force could not keep them off ; I am
satisfied I had a fair trial and the witness
es testified to the truth. " ,

Probst, on Friday the 8th day of June, has
been signed by Gov. Curtin. . and has been
