CI4EARFIELD, PA.. NOV. 4. l.XfiS.
Below we give the ouly returns from this
county, received up to the hour of going to
press this (Wednesday) morning :
Districts. Grant. Seymour.
Clearfield 111 lot)
Lawrence 100 253
Curwensville 57 niaj.
The election passed off very quietly. The
Democracy, it will be seen from the above
figures, increased their majority one in Law
rencehaving voted the four " "niggers"
again, and one white boy not over nineteen
years old, alter being duly challenged. How
the officers could receive these votes, under
their oaths, is a mystery to us.
In this borough the result is very gratify
ing to the friends of Grant, who increased
their vote fite since the October election, and
consequently rsduced the Democratic majir
ity nine, notwithstanding the extraordinary
efforts of the Seymourites to swell their vote
by running in a gang of persons who, in our
opinion, had been sent here expressly for
The returns, so far as received, are too
meagre to indicate what the Democratic
majority may be in the county, but, we
think, it will not exceed that in October.
Hon. G. W. Scofield. The following
paragraph from the "Upper Dauphin
Journal," meets our hearty approval, and
hence we give it a place in our columns to
"We are gratified to find that onr notice
in lavor of Mr. Scofield for United States
Senator, meets with the approbation of our
friends and our prominent Republicans in
different parts of he State. We have no
"axe to grind" in this matter, and are aiily
influenced by a desire for the prosperity and
welfare of the party, and for the elevation
of a man who wiil reflect honor upon the
State and add strength to the loyal party.
Mr. Scofield's experience and services as
a memUr of Congress have fitted him for
the high position for which he is named,
and has made the people acquainted with
hi- merits. His locality also is Mich as to
him. We know that other candidates are
seeking this office, and it is probable that se
ductive influences will be brought to bear in
their favor. Rut we do not believa that
they will be able to create a public senti
ment against the importance of electing a
first rate man to that position ; and we are
certain that no man whose locality is favora
ble, can be selected, that in point of talents
and qualifications will compete with Mr.
It is time, and this will be the occasion,
for, the Republican party to rebuke all at
tempt to rlevate inferior men to important
positions. We are aware that Mr. SciifitOd's
friends will have to eon.bat the cupMity
and mnnt-y influence of aspirants and their
hoteful backers We know the position is
one to be coveted and apircd after, but the
desires of no one should be encouraged who
is not fully qualified to fill the position in
the ablest and most satisfactory manner."
A Day op Thasksoivino. His Excel
lency, Governor John W. Geary, has pub
licly proclaimed Thursday, the 20th day of
November, as a day to be set apart by the
people of this Commonwealth, for thanks
giving to Almighty God. for the unbroken
peace which has reigned within our borders
during the past year, for the bountiful bar
vet just garnered by our people, and for
ether evidences of the protecting hand of
th Almighty. The people of Pennsylva
nia hate never had more reason for the ob
servance of a day by thanksgiving and
praise to the liord for uninterrupted prosper
ity than has been enjoyed during the past
year. The proclamation appears in lull in
Important Revenue Decision. Tho
Commissioner of Internal Revenue has had
the question propounded to him: "Where
an administrator wishes to assign a mortgage
not due, to the guardian of decedent's
heirs, in order to settle his trust finally,
is it necessary to stamp the assingment ?
Ni consideration, of course, passing from
th guardian to the administrator." To
this the following response has been made :
T reply to your lettter of the 19th instant,
the assingmeot of a mortgage requires, in
every case, the sanid stamp as a new wort
gage, tor the sum still secured. 1 be tax
does not depend as in the case of a convey -auce
upoo a valuable consideration."
Counterfeiters Nabbed. Two coun
terfeiters of United States fractional curren
cy, named Edward Rice and George Camp
bail, have been Babbed in Canada opposite
Detroit. Wbor, caught they gave them
selve up without extradition, and have
been taken to Washington for trial They
were engaged in printing counterfeit fi.'ty
cent pieces. The detectives found with the
rogues several plates, dies, presses and oth
er toola, beside a considerable quantity of
the uewly-printed coonrerleit currency.
Ballot-box stuffing is a ri-ty b-isines in

The New Rebellion.
Washington, Oct. 28,1868. Private ad
vice from ew Orleans state that the city
is completely under the control of the rebel
element; that the Metropolitan Police, or
ganized under the laws of the recent Legis
lature, composed in part of excolired sol
diers, have been driven off the principal
ttreeU by the Kutlux Ki ms, which are con
stantly parading, and that colored citizens
generally are afraid to venture out of their
hou-es even to obtain food and other neces
saries of life. General Rousseau's orders to
Lb troops,acd his attempts t.) restore quiet,
have had the effect intended by him of ma
king a display as if he were trying to keep
peace, but in reality have resulted in aiding
the rioters. Sheridan or any other loyal
general, would forthwith have accepted Gov.
Warniouth's proposition, which was virtual
ly to declare martial law in the city ; but
Koustfau merely parades the ex-rebel sol
diers now enlisted in the 1st infantry up and
down the streets, while the intimidation of
white and black Unionists is continued a
usual, and the mob will not al'ow the loyal
police to return to their posts. A number
of policemen have beeo hhot, while others
have been badlv beaten, and, in fact, with
but few exceptions, the entire force has
ceased to attempt to do duty. Rosseau up
to yesterday had not made any attempt to
res-tore the possession of the city to the po
lice authorities. In fact, a well organized
rebellion against the city government as re
modeled by the Legislature has succeeded
in wresting the control of the city from the
proper authorities , and a condition of chaos
prevails which at any moment may resolve
itself into a wholesale massacre of loyal men
of both races. The rebels openly boast that
they have succeeded in overpowering the
Metripolitan police and set at defiance the
laws of the State authorizing that organiza
tion, which to them are obnoxious because
they empower the Governor to appoint coin
missioners.and consequently to eecure a loy
al police force. Rousseau claims that he has
no right to interfere with the civil anthori
ties, now that the State has been restored
to theUnion, unless an actual outbreak oc-
curs, and ax he construes the situation it haj
not jet occurred. Iu short, the rebels have
in New Orleans, re-established their su
premacy, wrested from them by Fanagut's
naval forces in 18C2.aud have suecfc-afully re
belled agaioat the State government rcor-
ganized under the reconstruction acts of
The Earthquakes in San Francisco.
The recent earthquakes in San Francisco
created a terrible panic. A correspondent
states that the streets were filled with men
and women in their night clothes, running
hither and thither in great alarm. Animals
of all kinds felt the shock; horses became
wild gith terror, and some were thrown
down by the motion of the earth, while oih
ers started ana ran away, fugs were run
ning through the streets and barking, ap-

Birds even noticed the great convulsion of

streets with a rush whenever a slight vibra ,,a' 'ove retiring from t lie ceil she sank
tion indicated that the earth was not yet set-
tied. The earthquake took precedence over
everything, business being for the time for-
gotten, and ail looked as if another night
uvghtcooie that would swallow the city;
yet with all this fear the people tried to I
look cheerful as they told their experience
and related their hair-breadth escapes. I

becomes as at all times to render unto Him
the homage of grateful hearts ; and in the

designated Thursday, the 26th day of No

An Affecting Scene.
The Richmond Enquirer, of a few days
j since, has the following :
An affecting scene took place a few davs
since, at the police station, which melted
more than one heart to tears. A youna
man of respectable connections had been ar
rested for drunkeness and disorderly con

cell when his aged uiolher.at.iied in widows
weeds, entered the station house, and re
quested to be allowed an interview. The
revuest was granted, and she stood face to
face with her erring son. The surprise so
bered him for a moment, and he greeted her
with manly tenJeiness, but the demon of

A curious fact has been lately bro't
to notice in regard to the Nevada sil
ver mines. Heat, not water, ia the
chief enemy encountered after reaching
a great depth, and, instead of pumping
out water, the companies have to pump
in air. A Nevada paper says : "The
increase in the heat of our mines is now
beginning to give many of our mining
companies more trouble, and is proving
a great obstacle to mining operations in
those levels lying below a depth of one
thousand feet than any veins or 'pock
et deposits of water yet encountered.
A number of the leading companies on
the Comstock are now engaged in put
ting in engines to be used expressly for
driving fans for furnishing air to the
lower levels, forcing it through large
tubes of galvanized iron. With this
great increase of heat in our mines
comes a great decrease of water,in fact,
in our deepest mine the Bullton.which
has attained the depth of twelve hun
dred feet not a drop of water is to be
seen ; it is as dry as a lime kiln and as
hot as an oven. Iu the lower workings
of the Clwllar Potosi mine, which are
a perpendicular depth of eleven hun
dred feet below the surface, the ther
mometer now stands at one hundred
degrees a frightful heat to be endur
ed by a human being engaged in a kind
of labor calling for severe muscular ex
ertion. Here, also, we find the water
to have decreased till there is at the
present time a very insignificant amount,
it being necessary to run the pump but
four hours out of twentv-four."
People who are apprehensive that
some of these days this globe may be
smashed to atoms by a wandering com
et, and who have not been reassured by
the assertions of scientific men that
comets arc mainly composed of gas,
may certainly now dismiss their fears.
An aerolite, as big as a small comet,
has recently fallen on the earth's sur
face near Warsaw, in Poland, without
doing any damage, but, on the contrary,
being itself shivered to pieces by con
cussion with the atmosphere before it
reached the ground. It is said to have
had a surface of two thousand acres,
which by computation would give it a
diameter of more than a mile. It first
bursted high up in the air, then each of
the pieces broke up in turn, until parts
of the mass were reduced to powder.

snows mai our atmospnere acts as a
kind of cushion to protect us a"ains
all such dangerous visitors, and also
both sets them on fire bv friction, and
by the heat thus engendered explodes
them into comparatively harmless bits

boldt accounts for man's inabilitv to
become accustomed to, and consequent
ly not to dread earthquakes, by saying
that, whatever we have at any time or
under any circumstances considered
shaky, the earth has always stood firm
and when we find that tossing beneath
our feet, it seems as though the very
oottom ot things had been knocked out,
Every time the shock is repeated, the
unreliability of our only support is fore
ed upon our attention with augmented
force. Other dangers can be for&een
and provided against, but this is inev
itable and remorseless.
