' The Result in California. The fol
lowing paragraph, troui the New York Tri
bune, ia'to the point, and should be read ly
very Republican in Pennsylvania:
"The result of the California election has
taught the Union party both in New York
and throughout the country a wholesome
lexson. It has taught us that we can nerer
afford either to indulge in family quarrels
or to nominate any other than unexception
able men. Party chicanery was allowed in
California to effect a division in our ranks,
and the enemy rushed in at the breach and
beat as. . Moreover, of the two Republican
candidates for Governor neither had any
real strength. The persona! record of one
was not clear ; the other had no record at
all. The Democratic candidate.on t he other
hand, was a gentleman of the highest per
sonal character. No wonder we were beaten.
Now let us take this lesson to heart, and
make do more wicked blunders."
Republicans, awake ! Take warning from
the result in California. If any petty dif
ferences exnt, or apathy pervade your ranks,
cast them aside, and go to work in good
earnest. Make one grand and united effort
And victory will perch on your banners on
the eve of the Second Tuesday of next Oc
tober otherwiso, the result may. be as fatal
as that in California. "A word to the wise
Jcdge Williams. Tho Germantown
Telegraph, an independent journal of wide
influence and established character, in an
article of marked ability, has come out for
Judge Williams, and strongly against Shars
wood. We quote the concluding paragraph:
. '.'In the times now npon us it is essential
that every man should define his position.
Internal peace and unity can only be per
fected by the success of the national cause
and the defeat of all opponents. It is high
time that we set the seal of condemnation
upon those who, liko the recreant in, the
White House, can see nothing but uncon
stitutionality in the acts of Congress or in
whatever ends to consolidate and render
permanent the triumph of the national cause
ever the worst treason known to history."
It is something to know that onr debt is
being systematically decreased. We are
assured from Washington that the monthly
exhibit will show the' reduction for the
month to be nearly five mil ion dollars; and
we are furthermore told that 'during the
year ending August 1866, the Secretary of
the Treasury reduced the aggregate by one
hundred and twenty-four million dollars,
and in the year ending in August, 1867, he
has made a further reduction of one hun
dred and twenty-five million dollars, or in
round numbers, a reduction in two years of
two hundred and fifty million dollars."
Revolutionary. Tho Cincinnati En
quirer, a shining light of Democracy, makes
the following revolutionary suggestion :
-,J "If the President allows this Congress,or
any Congress constructed as this is, to im
peach or remove him, he will give the
strongest assurance that he is able to give
that he deserved to be impeached and re
moved. . A Constitutional President who
allows himself to be put out of office by an
unconstitutional Congress, will not escape
the alternative verdict of mankind, that he
is either a coward or an imbecile. The sym
pathy which men feel for an unfortunate,
willj in his case, be drowned in contempt
for inefficiency. " : v
- While the Government is steadily reduc
ing the paper currency, , and gradually ap
proaching the specie standard, the Copper
heads have surrendered their hard money
doctrine and are clamorous for an enormous
multiplication of paper -currency. The
amount of currency retired last month was
four millions. In ordar to keep op specu
lation 'in breadstnffs, pork and beef, the
Copperheads oppose this reduction of the
currency and are clamoring for the removal
of the Secretary of the treasury because he
insists in pursuing this policy.

Betting on Elections.
For many years a law has been on the
statute books ef Pennsylvania, to the effect
that all suroa of money bet on elections can
be made forfeit to the directors of the poor
in the counties where the wagers are laid.
But this law has been so seldom enforced as
to induce many persons to believe that it is
obsolete, a "dead letter" without force or
effect. A recent decision in the Lancaster
courts has awakened a new interest on this
subject, and we hope that the courts all
over the State will see that the law against
betting on elections is in future more strin
gently enforced. The facts of the case, as
they were developed on the trial, are given
by the Lancaster Express as follows: '
During the political canvass of 1 864, Evan
Mishler of Reading, and P. F. Hathaway
of this county, wagered $100 each on what
was called the "home vote" that is, Mish
ler bet that M'Clellan vrould have a majori
ty of the votes cast in the State. It so
happened, however, that there were a large
number of soldiers home during the elec
tion, and the votes of these, it was contend
ed, could not be counted as the home vote.
The real home vote therefore it was impos
sible to ascertain, and the "sporting men"
held that all bets of this character were to
be considered a "draw." In this case Mr.
Hathaway had been allowed the use of the
money, pending the election, and afterward
refused to consider the bet a draw. Mr.
Mishler therefore gave information to the
directors of the poor of the existenee of the
bet, and required them to bring suit, under
the act of Assembly for the recovery of such
Eenalties. The directors a ted accordingly,
ut the case was continued from term to
term, and only came to trial yesterday. The
iury found for the plaintiff to the full
amount, with interest.
This decision will put betting men on
their guard. They will know that hence
forth all bets on elections are illegal, and
that the money so staked is liable to be
General Grant. We have' attentively
watched the tone and comments of the Re
publican press of the country on the course
pursued of late by Gen. Grant, and we are
bound to say that hts has gone through the
crisis and come up stronger than ever.
There u no longer any room to doubt that
he belongs to that order of men who rise
equal to the emergency, evincing qualities
which he was not known to possess. His
career for the last half dozen ears which
is one of the most remarkable of any we
have any account fully proves this. Of
the language of the Republican press, the
following from tho Philadelphia Bulletin is
a fair sample :
"Meanwhile Gen. Grant is f-howing that
same rare quality of patience that gnve him
Yicksburg and Richmond. Construing the
law in its broad and palpable roeaninir he
will continue to exert that superintending
power over the military districts to which
Congress assigned bim. lie will attempt
no usurpation and will offer no merely fac
tious opposition to the President, but he
will commend himself to the 'people by a
quiet, dignified firmness, waiting until Con
gress reassembles in November, to solve the
present embarrassments of his situatiou."
The Army and Xavy Journal for last
week, writing of "Grant versus Johnson,"
says : ,
"Considering the phlegmatic source
whence it came, and the time and manner
of its coming, Gen. Grant's protest against
the removal of Sheridan must be regarded
as the most extraordinary manifesto of our
time. Gen. Grant's record, there
fore, is clear. He did his utmost to procure
the reinstatement of Sheridan. With a
grand consciousness that he was a standard
bearer o the popular cause, he called upon
the President, not in his own name, but in
the name of the American people. His ap
peal being unavailing, he has, like a good sol
dier, submitted to one who, by virtue of bis
office, is commander of both army and navy."
"Tit for Tat. "-The Reading Journal
raps his Copperhead cotemporary over tho
knuckles in this wise:
"The Gazette says Judge Williams is a
'Connecticut Yankee.' So was Mr. Justice
Strong, and yet the Democrats of lierks
sent him fur two terms to represent them in
Congress, and afterwards elected him a
Jud.'je of" the Supreme Court the very po
sition for which Judge Williams is now nom
inated by the Republicans. The Copper
heads of Berks ought to be the last persons
to-oppose Judge Williams because he was
born in a Yankeo State m view of their
paat record.'' '
Italy and Mexico have recently sold vast
properties belonging to the Catholic Church,
and applied the proceeds to paying their res
pective indebtedness. It is now rumored that
Austria will follow this example. However
sacred Catholic governments may hold the
political temporalities of the Pope to be, a
point has been reached in which they do not
scruple to appropriate properties of the
church, "gifts of the faithful," to their own
use. When the 6ons of the church thus
rise up against, her heart must be smitten
with grief. . -, ,
"Ready Made." The Alabama Conser
vative Convention at Montgomery.nn Thurs
day, Sept. 4th, declined the building of a
platform, as they found that of the Demo
cratic party of Pennsylvania ready made
and exactly fitting their case. The adoption
of another State's resolves is not a common
event, but as the Keystone . Democrats so
exactly set forth what the Anti-Unionists of
the South desire, it was a happy stroke of
wit to save time and brain-work by the
borrowiug. ; .
Hon. John Hickman has been nominated
by the Republicans of Chester county to
represent them in the lower House of the
Legislature at Harrisburg. The convention
denounced the ciurse of Andrew Johnson.'

lation into the cup of Indian bitterness by

- The Recent-State Elections. -
ALL HAIL VERMONT 1
An election was held in Vermont on Tues
day, September 3d, for Governor and Leg
islature, and resulted, as usual, in a sweep
ing Republican victory. Hon. John B.
Page, the Republican candidate for Gevern
or, was elected in place of Paul Dillingham",
Republican, by about 20,000 majority. The
Legislature is after the established pattern ;
the Senate is all Republican, and the House
nearly so. Fifty-one towns elect 47 Repub
licans and 4 Democrats.- The day was rainy
and the vote lighter than usual. There is
no State in the Union whose majority is so
one-sided. Think of a Legislature with not
a single Copperhead Senator, and a House
almost equally unanimous. Again we say,
"All hail, Vermont!"
RADICAL VICTORY IN WILMINGTON.
An election was held in the city of Wil
mington, Delaware, on the 3d of September.
Joshua S. Valentine, the Radical candidate
for Mayor, was elected by 270 majority
about the same as last year. The whole
Radical ticket was elected except in one ward
where there is a Copperhead majority of 15.
That will do for Little Delaware, and goes
to show that the Republicans are able to
hold their own in the Diamond State.
THE COPS CARRY CALIFORNIA.
Owing to some disaffection and apathy on
the part of the Republicans in California,
the Copperheads have succeeded in electing
their candidate for Governor by about 8,000
majority. The Cops also elect a majority of
the Legislature, thereby securing the U. S.
Senator. The Congressional delegation is
also Copperhead. "'"
The Kentucky soldiers of the Union, who
bore our national colors from Green river to
Atlanta, have called a convention at Louis
ville to secure a loyal custodian tor the bat
tle flags now deposited with the Governor.
The newly-elected Governor of Kentucky is
a man of rebel sympathies, and the admin
istration is now in the hands of rebel sol
diers. Confederate officers are not the
proper guardians of Union flags. This is
the first fruits of the Democratic triumph in
that State, and is an impressive commenta
ry upon Kentucky loyalty and Democratic
The Coppeaheads are really in a condition
of snakes stii ging themselves to death.
They have aiopted as candidates the men
who formerly opposed all their old princi
ples. They accept as leaders old anti Jack
son hacks and broken down "Old Line"
Whigs. Of course while acknowledging
such men as their leaders, the Copperhead
Dcni jcracy must endorse the doctrines to
which such demagogues have clung for years,
and thereby sting themselves to death Tru
ly the road of the transgressor is hard.

no intention of resuming hostilities against
k IK.,. r u: r c i. a e
it has sent out orders for the immediate re
turn of theflcct from the Pacific if the
fleet is not too slow in the execution of the
order, it may be back in the time to facili
tate the escape of the Queen and her chief
advisers ; for, whether the present insurrec
tion succeeds or not, the throne of the Bour
bons is not likely to stand much longer. -
The Equal Richts meeting at Wilmington,
Del., on Sept. 4th, was attended by about
fifteen hundred persons, of whom about one
half were colored men. Radical resolutions
were adopted, and a hundred delegates were
appointed to the Baltimore Border State
Convention. Congressmen Kelly of Penn
sylvania and Crcsswell of Maryland made
stirring addresses. The Convention was en
tirely huccessful, and the proceedings were
harmonious and dignified.
Andrew Johnson has promulgated another
proclamation, apparently on the same pnn
ciple that tho mayors or small towns get
them on periodically to say something. In
a series of whereases, he recapitulates the
poli;ical theory of the Government, and -iii
conclusion admonishes all citizens to be
good. This original document is, wc pre
sume, says thc'Vfrw, wot written by Mr.
Stanbcry or Black. Jt bears the earmarks
of" Presidential lucubratiou.
That Sharswoodism has not depressed the
price of Government securities, which have
rather appreciated lately, is pretty good evi
dence that no great fear of its prevalence in
Pennsylvania is entertained by the shrewd
business men of the country. And it is al
so encouraging to the hope that after the
Democrats bhall be again well beaten, a
month hence, business and financial affairs
will settle down into a healthful condition
of stability and prosperity.
A final meeting of the executive commit
tee of the Southern Relief Association has
been held. The cash contributions from
the North in aid of the suffering people of
the South amount to two and a half millions
of dollars ; the contributions in cash and
'kind to three millions. In this sum is inclu
ded over half a million of dollars expended
through the Freedmen's Bureau by order of
the terrible, blood-thirsty, Radical Congress.
General Sickles is determined not to be
degraded by the President. The purpose
to muster him out as a Major General of
Volunteers and reduce him to the grade of
Colonel in the reeular army, is contempla
ted to mortify the hero, but he has deter
mined, when he is removed from his present
command, to retire from the army and en
gage in the practice of the law in New York.
General Canby having continued the ob
noxious order for which General Sickles was
removed, Mr. Johuson must either remove
him at once or acknowledge himself beaten.
If he makes no more at removing District
Commanders than he has in this case, Mr.
Johnson had better give up the business.
Andrew Johnson is losing all his friends.
In his aled:etory on going out of the Gov
ernorship of Kentucky, the other day, Gov.
Bramlette was very severe on "demagogues
to whoso influence he declared, that all our
troubles might be traced. , .

To the School Directors of Clearfield County
Dear Sirs: According. to a resolution
passed by the Directors, at the-Directors'
Association, held in Clearfield, on the 15th
day or January last, two. Directors from
each district of the county, will 'meet' in
Clearheld, on luesday, the 24th day of Sep
tember, 1867, at 2 o'clock, P. M., to recom
mend a uniform series of text-books through
out the county. Want of a uniformity of
books is one of the greatest impediments to
the progress tf our public schools. Many
of our schools are utter failures in conse
quence of the variety of books. If the law
weresfncffjff'etiforced,. a neglec t to adopt a
uniform series would forfeit the State ap
propriation, as surely as a neglect to keep
the schools open four months. With such
a diversity of books, as we find, in most of
the schools of this county, proper classifi
cation is impossible ; and three-fourths of
the teacher's time is worse than wasted., On
pager 82 and 83 of School Law and Decis
ions of 1866, will be found the law and de
cisions upon this important subject. The
law docs not contemplate the changing of
text-books evtry year. It aims at unifor
mity, aiid when rhis is secured the same
books should be continued, for at least, five
years. It is my humble judgment that the
aggregate expense would be less than one
half to the people of the county, if there
were a uniform series adopted. .Every new
teacher induces his pupils to get the kind
of books he prefers, when he finds no series
has been adopted. This has been the case
year after year. ' Thus, there is a constant
changing of books, and yet no uniformity.
It is not strai ge, then, that citizens com
plain of this annual drain upon their purses
for school books. . The law requires unifor
mity, and nothing can be gained by putting
it off. . It must come sometime and the
sooner the better for th schools and the
people of the county. Anxious to improve
the schools of the county, and believing this
to be the next step towards the advance
ment of the same, I appeal to Directors to
fearlessly and promptly carry this part of
the law, which has generally so long been
neglected, into effect. Nearly all other
counties have adopted a 'uniformuy' this
summer. The citizens of this county desire
the same. The teachers ask for it, and why
should Directors hesits te ?
Directors, the people of the county will
hold you responsible, if the schorls do not
improve, if you fail to adopt a uniform series
of text-books. George W. Snyder.

TnREE Months for Nothing. Look
at this Offer. The Publishers of the
American Agriculturist bhow their enter
prise by offering that valuable journal free
for the remaining three months of this year
to all new subscribers for 1868, (Vol. 27,)
who send in their subscriptions during this
month of September. The cost of the Ag
riculturist is only $1 50 for a year, or four
copies for $5, so that $1 50, (or $1 25 each
for four persons, ) if sent to the publisher
this mouth, will secure the paper for fifteen
months. We advise all to make haste to
accept this offer. The money could not be
better invested, for that paper, at its pres
ent subscription price, is one of the cheap
est in the world. It is designed for the
Farm, Garden, and Household. It has
readers almost every where, among the old
and the youner, and not its least recommen
dation is the fact that the children are de
lighted with its Boys' and Girls' Depart
ment. Each number contains 32 to 44 large
quarto pages, full of interesting and valua
ble matter for readers both in country and
city. Its "engravings are costly and beauti
ful, and calculated not only to pleae the
eye, but to . improve the taste. We have
also seen from month to month exposures
of the vario-is Humbugs and Swindling
Operations of the day, which must have
saved tens of thousands of dollars to the
unwary. We are sure you will thank us for
our advice if you send your subscription at
once to the publishers, Orange Judd & Co.,
