CLEARFIELD, PA., JULY 10, IS67.
Hon. Henry W. "Williams,
Congress in Session.
The Fortieth Congress of the United
States, re-assembled at Waehington, on
July 3d, in obedience to a resolution pissed
in March last. Both Houses met at noon,
and, upon the roll being called, in the Sen
ate 34 members answered to their names,
and in the House 125 responded to the call.
The President was then informed of the or
ganization: of both Houses, and of their
readiness to receive any communications he
might desire to make.. No message was
sent in. During the afternoon several bills.
amendatory of the reconstruction act were
presented in the Senate, and in the House
the case of all the members elect from Ken
tucky, except Mr. Adams of the 7th Dis
trict, were referred to a committee to inquire
as to their loyalty and the Iegafify of their
election ; after which both branches adjourn
ed to Friday.
It is understood that the session will be
almost exclusively devoted to the recon
struction business in the South. Had
President Johnson, after his veto of the
military reconstruction bill, and its passage
by the requisite Constitutional two-thirds
of both nouses, fairly enforced the law, as
he declared he would, instead of endeavor
ing to make it a nullity by the misconstruc
tions of Attorney General Stanberry, there
would have been no necessity for this extra
session of Congress. But, as the National
Executive manifests a strong disposition
not to execute the laws passed by Congress,
and to foist upon the people of the country
' his own peculiar views in their stead, it is
but just that the representatives of the peo
ple should assemble and provide the means
for the execution of the laws which they
passed in obedience to the will of that people.
Such are the causes which impelled the
ra-aasembling of Congress at this time, and
shows the real condition of existing issues
between the Legislative and Executive
branches of the Government Whether
these differences can be speedily and satis
factorily adjusted, remains to be seen ; yet,
there is little doubt that the people will
sustain Congress in applying the requisite
remedy to the existing dangerous tendency
to Executive usurpation or "the one mam
' Ofir Candidate.
We place at the head of our columns, to
day, the name of Hon. Heniy W. Williams,
the nominee of the Republican Convention
at Williamsport, for Supreme Judge of this
State. Mr. Williams is a man of fine tal
entsf an able lawyer, a thorough judge.hon
est and upright, and unwavering in his de
votion to the cause of his country a man
in every way qualified for the responsible
position to which he is named, and one who
is worthy the support of every lover of the
Union. In noticing the nomination of Mr.
Williams the Pittsburg Post, the organ of
Democracy in Western Pennsylvania, says:
''The nomination of the Hon. Henry W.
Williams as a candidate for Judge of the
Supreme Court, is a eood one. He was
the best man named among the candidates
before the Republican convention, and pos
sesses legal and moral qualifications for the
responsible position to which he has been
nominated. Both parties have now presen
ted their candidates."
Advices from Mexico are highly im
portant. Vera Cruz has capitulated, the
soldiers garrisoning the place being permit
ted to leave the country on board a Mexican
National vessel. The city surrendered qui
etly and without any bloodshed. It is also
reported that Santa Anna has found his re
public in an ignominious death, having been
ehot ai Sisal. The latter is highly probable,
as it was stated in previous dispatches that
he was held a prisoner at Cam peachy, where
his trial was proceeding. Moreover it was
telegraphed that highly important docu
ment were found in lris possession by the
liberals. He felt anxious to test his popu
larity in Mexico, and through imprudence
has brought his eventful life to a close.
The Pittsburg Post, a Democratic paper,
advises its party, in case Grant is nomina
ted by the Republicans, to abandon their
ideas and vote for him a significant fact,
foretelling the impending dissolution of the
old worn-out Democratic organization.
Gen. Thomas Francis Meagher, Secreta
ry hod Acting Governor of Montana, fell
from the deck of a steamer, at Fort Ben
ton, on July 1st, and was drowned.
The impeachment project is again can
vassed in Washington, with some prospect
of its being undertaken before tbo adjourn
ment of the Fortieth Congress.

The Republican State Convention met at

PLATFORM AND RESOLUTIONS.
Hon. Edward McPhe.son, chairman of
the Committee on Resolutions and Plat
form, reported the following:
The Republicans of Pennsylvania appeal
ing again to the people, take pleasure in re
calling the repeated occasions in which the
voters of the Commonwealth have sustained
and ratified their candidates and principles,
and strongly impressed with the importance
of the ensuing election, make this declara
tion of their opinions and principles:
First. That, in the name of the nation
saved from treason, we demand security
against its repetition by exacting from the
vanquislied such guarantees as will make
treason so odious as to be forever impossi
Second. That, as in the past we cordially
justified the administration of Abraham
Lincoln in all necessary acts for the suppres
sing of the rebellion, we record it as our
judgment that the administration of An
drew Johnson has been chiefly faitl lessee
cause it has failed to try to gather up and
fix in the organic and statute law the great
principles which the war has settled, and
without whose adoption as a rule of action
peace is but a delusion and a snare.
Third. That, in the completion of the
task of reconstruction, so firmly as to be
perpetual, it is indispensable that traitors
beaten in the field shall not find a Fanctuary
in the courts: that the laws shall not be tor
tured to justify or palliate the crimes of
which the country s enemies have been
guilty, and that the law of war shall be so
distinctly declared by the courts that no
paralyzing doubts may ever be raised, as in
18G1, effecting the essential rights of the
trovernment or personal duties or citizens.
Fourth. That this convention speaking
tor the ltepubucans of i ennsyivania, unre
servedly endorses the reconstruction mea
sures of the Thirty-ninth and Fortieth Con
gresses as a basis upon sound rtnnciDles. es
sentially just and wise, and promise an early
legal and permanent restoration of the rebel
States to their share in the government of
the U nion ; that we denounce and condemn
the efforts of President Johnson, through
his pliant Attorney General and a majority
of his Cabinet, to evade these laws by inter
fering to obstruct and prevent their enforce
ment in the spirit in which they were pass
ed, and that we call upon Congress, soon to
meet, promptly to dispose of this new nul
lification. Fifth. That the thanks of the loyal men
of this Commonwealth are hereby tendered
to Major General Sheridan and Major Gen
eral Sickles for their publicly declared un
willingness to be made instrumental, in the
startling and truthful words of the former,
"in epening, under the Presidential declara
tion, a broad, macadamized way for perjury
and fraud to travel on," in pursuit of the
coveted repossession of political power in
the rebel States; and that this convention
confidently expects that General Grant will
vindicate his past record by cordially sus
taining them in their patriotic efforts to ex
ecute the law.
Sixth. That President Johnson farther
merits our condemnation for his reckless
pardon and attempted restoration to politi
cal rights many of tin? chief conspirators
against the Union; and that especially bis
Sersistent efforts to compel the release of
efferson Davis without question for his
crimes were a reproach to the administra
tion of justice and an insult to the whole
loyal people of the nation.
Seventh. That warned by past misfor-,
tunes, we ak that the Supreme Court of the i
State be placed in harmony with the politi
cal opinions of the majority of the people,
to the end that the court may never again,
by Unjust decisions, seek to set aside laws
vital to the nation, nor imperil the safety
of the public securities, nor impair the op
eration ot the bounty, pension ana tax laws,
which are required for the public defense ;
nor in any way thwart measures which were
essential to to the public protection ; but
that, on the other hand, it may become
and remain a fit and faithful interpretor of
the liberal spirit of the age, a bulwark ot
publia faith, and an impartial and fearless
exponent of the equal rights oi man.
feature of the Republican creed, we trust
that such legislation will be secured, as will
afford adequate protection to American in
dustry. Xinfh. That, in conformity with the
pledges given last fall by both candidates
for Governor, we now demand the enact
ment of a free railroad law, by which the
enterprise of our people way be stimulated,
and the resources of the Commonwealth
Tenth. I hat in (jrovernor John .Lreary,
wc recognize an honest and courageous pub
lic servant, who, in the chair of the State,
is adding freshness to the lavrels gallantly
won in war.
Eleventh. That the gratitude of the peo
ple to the soldiers and sailors, whose bravery
met and overthrew the slaveholders rebel
lion, should have repeated and emphatic
expression : and that we heartily disapprove
and condemn the course of the Secretary of
the Treasury in postponing and ignoring
the iust claims of our brave defenders up
on the bounty of the Government, awarded
to them by the .National Congress.
Ttcclflh. That in the Hon. Henry W
Williams, of Allegheny county, we present
to the people of Pennsylvania an eminent
jurist; oneineveiy war well qualified for
the responsible duties of the omceoi juage
ot the supreme Uourt; able as a lawyer;
impartial, prompt and thorough as a judge;
honest, upright, without suspicion as a man,
and unwavering in his devotion to the cause
of his country.
A resolution was passed reappointing
Col. Frank Jordan chairman ot the State
Central Committee for the emming year,
and also providing for the balance of the
.state Central Uooinjittee in tne usual way.
The thanks of the Convention were also
tendered to Col. Jordan for the efficient
manner in which he conducted the last
campaign. The Chair then announced the
names of gentlemen compriMng the State
Central Committee. 1 he customary resolu
tions of thanks to the officers of the Con
vention were passed and the body adjourn

Maximilian Shot. Matamoras, June
28th, 1867, by way of New Orleans, July
2nd. 'J. 30 P. M. Official information of the
death of Maximilian, Miramon and Mejia
was received here yesterday. The report of
Jjscobedo says they were condemned on the
night of the 14th, the sentence confirmed at
headquarters on the 15th, ana the loth de
signated as the day of execution. Their ex
ecution was, however, suspended by order
ot Juarez until the 19th, on which date, at
seven o'clock, A M. , the three were shot.
On the morning of the 18th the Prussian
M inistermade another attempt to save them,
but failed. Maximilian wasshotface'totfrtf
front. His last words were "Poor Carlotta!"
Miramon aud Mejia were reduced from their
rank and shot in the back. Gen. Berriozable
immediately communicated the news to Gen.
Reynolds, in Brownsville. There is
irreat rejoicing in Mexico over the event.
Official information of the surrender of the
capital to Dias has also reached here. Mar-
3uez was disposed, and the city was surren
ered by Ramon labera. It is thought here
that Juarez has started for the capital.
Mexicans are jubilant; and foreigners are
horror stricken. Letters from J uarez receiv
ed at headquarters here, and which your
commissioner has had the privilege of pe
rusing, state that Maximilian, Mejia and
Miramon were sentenced to be shot on the
morning of June 16. The sentence was pro
mulgated on the morning of June 14th. Sub
sequently the execution was postponed for
three days, to give Maximilian time to ar
range his affairs, and it was announced that
the execution would positively take place on
the morning f June 19th, at 11 o'clock.
The Prussirn and British Minister visited
Juarez at San Louis Potosi, to endeavor to
arrest the doom of the unfortunate Prince,
but their efforts were vain. Both had re
turned to Queretaro, to take formal leave
of Mexico, when the Prince was executed.
Among Maximilian's papers found in Que
retaro was a will, by which, in case of his
death, he appoints Theodosia Lanes, Jose
Maria Lacuusca and Marguey regents of
of the empire. Portions of Maximilian's ser
vice plate are on exibition as trophies at
Matamoras. The following is the telegram
of Escobedo to the Secretary of War, an
nouncing the execution of Maximilian:
San Luis Potosi, June 19. 1867. Citizen
Minister of War: On the 14th inst, 11 o'
clock at night, the Council of War condem
ned Maximilian of Hapsburg, Miguel Mir
amon and Thomas Mejia to suffer the ex
treme penalty of the law. The sentence
having been confirmed at these headquar
ters, it wrs ordered to be carried into effect
on the 16th. The execution was suspended
by order of the supreme government until to
day. It is now seven o'clock in the morning,
at which time Maximilian has just been
shot Please communicate to the Citizen

Mr. Covode's resolution, calling for the
correspondence between Secretary Seward
and Mr. Lewis D. Dampbell, will show that
the latter remained in New Grleans by Mr.
Seward's orders ; and, when asked to go to
Jaurez, he applied for an idle Revenue cut
ter at New Orleans, but was refused, and
was told to go to Havana and apply for a
passage on some French steamer. This he
refused to do, and tendered his resignation ;
and, since the execution- of Maximilian,
Mr. Seward ordered out said Revenue cut

Mr. Stevens seems more vigorous than at

There is no mistaking the fact that both

The Surratt Trial.
The testimony h the part of the prosecu
tion has nearly reached a close. The evi
dence reveals many new facts with reference
to the pn.-soner on trial, and indicates proba-
FIe complicity ot others, as has been strong
y suspected ever since the fatal day of Mr.
Lincoln's assassination. The most direct
statements are mad by Dr. McMillian,
the surgeon of the vessel in which Surratt
crossed the sep, in making his escape. OCR
ratt, himself a Catholic, wa3 introduced to
Dr.McMlLLlAX by a Catholic priest named
La Pierre, who seems to have had the fu
gitive in charge, and to have been expecting
him before his arrival in Montreal. With
the Surgeon, as an officer of a British vessel
and as introduced by the priest, Scrratt
was quite confidential and communicative
during the voyage. The facts mentioned in
the surgeon s testimony, confirm the suspi
cions of the complicity of leading seceaion
ists in the assassination, and reveal the fact
that Scrratt, now fully proved to have
been engaged in the plot, was the messen
ger by whom the communications letween
Richmond a ndLanada were kept up. lie re
ce ved, as he said to Dr. McMillian, large
sums ot money from .Benjamin, the Areas
urer of the confederacy. And on his arrival
in Quebec, and during the, voyage, he was
in company and conversation with Beverly
Tucker, Jewett, General Ripley, of South
Carolina, and a servant of Jeff. Davis, We
have no doubt Mr. Davis and the secession
company around him in Canada have pecu
liar sensations when they read this testimo
ny. And the people of this country will be
struck with the fact that Mr. Davis should
have made directly for their congenial soci
ety as soon as he was released from prison

The Indian "War.
The Denver papers publish a dispatch
from General Sherman to General Hancock
on Indian matters, in which he says: "We
must not remain on the defensive, but fol
low them up and attack them on all possible
occasions. We must clean out all the In
dians between the Platte and Arkansas, and
then move against the hostile tribes in force
beyond those regions. An Omaha dis
patch says Col. Patrick, the agent for the
.Northern Lheyennes, Arapahoes, andArnil
lallah Sioux, has just arrived from the
JNorth f'Jatte, where he met Spotted 1 ail
Swift Bear and several other chiefs in coun
cil, with the view of gathering all the peace

rick thinks that the arrangements will be
carried out in good faith ; but that the pub
lic may not be misled, he says that Red
