CLEARFIELD, PA., OCT. 27, 1869.
ThkResclt. la another column we pub
lish the official figures of the recent Pcnu
tylvania election. Gov Geary's majority is
4,S0G, and that of Judfc'e Williams 8,701.
The vote this year is 70,692 less than it was
last year for Auditor General. The Itejis
try Lav, no doubt, prevented the Democrats
from polling, as usual, some IO.OjO or 2'1,.
00 fraudulent voles for their candidates.
This fact, in connection with the sniallnc.s
of the vote cast on the I2h iiist., warrant?
uk in saying : Had anything near a full vote
been polled thia year our candidates would
have received from 23,000 to 30,000 of a
majority. The result then, notwithstand
ing our meagre majority, i.s of a most grat
ifying and encouragiug character, and one
over which the Republicans of Pennsylva
nia, and of the whole country, have great
cause for rejoicing.

would exit in this country had the Pendie
tonian Democracy been successful at the last
Presidential cleetion,and at the more recent
State elections. From the condition of mon
ey matters in Hayti, the people of the Uni
ted States can now see how great a financial
disaster they escaped by the election of Gen.
Grant, and the retention in power of the
Goni Lip. On Friday last, the Tennes
see Legislature put a quietus upon Andy
Johnson, by electing Henry Cooper as Uni
ted States Senator from that State. Al
though the Legislature is largely Democrat
ic it rejected the '"Old Man OListinate" by
a majority of four. It Li almost a pity that
ho was not elected to the U. S. Senate,
wber he would have done no harm, except
to indict upon that body his old long wiud
ed speech about the Coustitutinn, while his
absence from Tennessee would have afforded
that distracted State a blessed season of re
pobe. The defeat of Andy Johnson is the
severest blow the Democracy ret-rived" this
fall, excepting, per Imps, that of Repudia
tion Pendleton, for Governor of Ohio.

to resign or be removed, in consequence of

if the charges against hiui could be sustain

lie was in any way concerned with the oper

was in any way responsible for the silly and
damaging "defense" of himself which has
been put forth in some of the newspapers,
it should take prompt measures to put its

Deatti of an Ex Governor. Ex Gov
ernor Joseph Ritncr died at the residence of
Lis son, in Carlisle, on Saturday, October
loth. He had attained the ripe age of
ninety years. During hi prime he was one
of Pennsylvania's active pjlititions. He
filled the Gubernatorial chair of the State
from 1S35 to 1S3S, and it was during his
administration that the excitement incident
to the anti-Mawiiie movement prevailed.
Governor Ritner was never credited with
brilliancy of parts, but he possessed earnest
ness of conviction and integrity of purpose.
The last twenty five years of his life were
jajed in retiraey.
The Financial Paosrcer. The steadily
continued reduction of the national debt,

The New Virginia Senators.
John 1 Lewis, Esq. and Judge John W
Johnston, recently chosen by the Virginia
Legislature to represent that State i the
Senate of the United States, are said to be
gentlemen of considerable ability, and to
have been true to the old flag throughout
the whole war of the rebellion. They both
can conscietiously fake the required oath.
Mr. Lewis Is a native of Lewiston, a
small town iu Rockingham county, and a
lawyer by profession. He was never known
as a politician, but was an uncompromising
Whig, although residing in the very midst
of what was then knowu as the "tenth le
gion" of Virginia Democracy. Ha was a
member of the Constitutional Convention of
1S61, but voted against and refused to sign
the ordinance of Secession, and was a stanch
Union man throughout the rebellion. He
is greatly respected for uprightness, integri
ty aud independence of character. He is a
son of the late Gen. 3. II. Lewis, and has
devoted himself principally to agriculture.
Judije Johnston, who has been elected as
the culleague of Col. Lewis, is a native of
Washington coun'y, Va., and a lawyer by
profession. Except in his new office of
judge, he has only been onee in public life,
which was as a member of the Virginia Sen
ate in 1847 8, from the Tazewell district.
He was then one of the twenty three who
refused logo into caucus with the Demo
cratic party, and who united with the Whigs
in electing Mr. Hunter aud afterwards Mr.
Mason to the Senate of the Linked States
over Gov. Smith and Gov. McDowell. He
is a nephew of Gen. Joseph E. Johnston,
who figured prominently in the Southern
army during the recent war. He was al
ways a devoted friend of the Union, and so
remained to the end of the rebellion.
A Democratic Ignns Fatuu3.
The Democratic "gains," of which their
papers have so much to gay every year, and
which are always to elect,but nsverrfo elect
their ticket, are the most deluding Will-o'-the-wisps
we have ever heard of. "There
is a curve," says the Pittsburg Dispatch,
"known to the students of conie sections,
the peculiarity of which is that although it
continually approaches nearer and nearer to
a given straight line, it uever reaches it,and
never would reach it, if contiuued to the
confines of space. The "caius" of the De
mocracy are very much like this curve. For
the last eight or nine years they have been
continually and everywhere increasing, but
somehow they fail to reach the line of suo
cess, and for aught we can see, the elections
oflast week, which show the greatest "gain9M
of all, according to Democratic arithmeti
cians, give them no more hope of really at
taining success than any of the others over
which their roosters have flapped their wings
in vaiu. Notwithstanding their gaining, the
Republicans still keep a little ahead, and
show no signs of giving out. The worst of
it all is that these gains merely encourage
the Democracy to persevere in their delu
sive struggle. Rut for them they would
long ago have given up and saved their
streu-'.Ii nd wind till by rest aud the adop
tion of new and souuder principles they
might win in some future contest. But like
the "fire fly lamp," in the old Dismal Swamp
ballad, these deceiving "gains" are leading
the poor Democracy deeper and deeper into
the morasses of prejudice, until at last it
must perish in the slimy ooze."
Unprecedented Coolness. At Mead
ville, on F riday before the election, while
Gov. John W. Geary was addressing a large
mass meeting of Repubiicans,and just as he
was in the middle of a well-rounded sentence,
the platform on which be,together with the
officers of the meeting stood, suddenly gave
way, precipitating all to the groud. The
Governor, as he was going aown, continued
speaking, losing not a word, and he strug
gled out from the broken timbers still talk
ing as though nothing had happened to dis
turb bis equilibrium, affording an exhibi
tion of thatenoluessandsolf-possesfcion which
combined to make him the great hero and
soldier. Scarcely one man out of ten thous
and could, under similar circumstances. have
controlled his nerves so effectually and re
tained such .presence of mind, aud it is as
much lrom these little circumstances as
from greater ones that we all draw our esti
mates of a uiau'scharacter and qualities.
Conti stlt Election Case. The Sen
atorial scat of Mr. Scull, from the Somerset
district, will be contested by his late oppo
nent, Mr. Findlay. The former claims his
election by a majority of 17, while the friends
of the latter insi.it that he was elected by 21
majority. Our friend Scull, should employ
Mr. Swoope, a counsel in his behalf the
Utter having some experience in such cases.
Speaking of the Secretary of War, the
Quincv ( 111. ) Whig bays : "The sensation
al nonene from Dos Moines about General
Belknap's political unsoundness is all bosh,
as we personally know. The whole etOry is
a fabrication of ignorance or malice. Gen.
Belknap is not an active partisan, but he is a
good Republican, and a very able man."
Rascality Unmasked. It has been
satisfactorily ascertained that the wires
freighted with the government dispatches
directing the sale of gold, during the event
ful conspiracy days, were tapped in or near
the city of New York, and its contents made
known to the gamblers in advance of its de
livery to Gen. ButterBeld.
California Election. Incomplete re
turns from the interior coun'ies of Califor
nia indicate that b th the vacancies on the
Supreme Bench have been filled by Demo
crats. The vote wis very lieht, and the re
sult is in accordance with expectatiens.
It is stated that the large amount of traf
fic drawn to the Pacific Railroad has so ta
ken away business from the Panama route
as to render it impobable that the latter line
can ever again enjoy prosperity. This is a
change which might have been foreseen.
Fiscal. The Secretary of the Treasury,
from the 1st of May to the 30th of Septem
ber, purchased $52,691,000 of Five-twenty
bonds. The saving of interest on these
purchases amounts to over two millions per

this year is 76,092 less than that of last
year. Of this the Ilepublicans lose 40,009,

This eminent Catholic priest arrived in
New Yoik last week, and the papers of that
city are making the most out of bis presence
there; bat he is unusually and sensibly re
served, and np to this time little has been
drawn from him by the numerous interview
ers who have pestered him with important
questions. Father Ilyacinthe haa not re
nounced the Roman Catholic religion, but
he is not au extremist or a bigot: disagrees
with some of the doginvj of the church, and
favors, to some extent, liberty of concience
in religious matters. What stand he may
feel obliged to take hereafter, should ex
communication follow the heresy he k charg
ed with, can only be conjectured; but as
revolutions, whether in religious or civil af
fairs, "never go backward," we may reason
ably anticipate on the part of the Caiinelite
.Monk a step in advance of Lis present posi
tion, before many years, or even mouths
elapse, if his life should be continued &o
long. lie is credited in one of the New
York papers with the following account of
the rupture between hiinself and his eccle
"My views are embodisd in a letter I
wrote to the Superior of my convent, which
was published at the time. The Catholic
Church is divided into two parties, the Ul
tramontane, or stand still party, and the
party ot progress in both religious and polit
ical thought. To the latter wing Monsieur
Monialauibert is now attached, though he
was formerly on the othor side. Its ideas
were also held by the Abbe Lacordaire, pre
vious to his decease. I bad been in the
habit of leaving every Sunday the Carmelite
Convent, in which I was a monk, to preach
in the church of Notre Dame do Paris. In
my sermons, 1 leaned towards liberty of con
cience in religious matters, and attacked the
f-pirit which, in the past days gave birth to
the Inquisitiou. I considered protestants
to be Christians. They had been baptized
as such, and their doctrines were Christian.
The Superior of my convent objected to this
freedom and perpetually took me to task.
This aunoyed me. I felt niyi?e!f perpt-tualiy
seized by the throat and gagged. The an
ger of uiy Superior was still further aroused
by my attendeoce at the Peace Congress in
Paris, where I delivered an address. The
harm of advocating peace, I could not see,
but as universal peace was in contradistinc
tion to the past practice of Christendom,
probably that was the reason of my repre
hension. Wearied, at last, by perpetual
and unreasonable restraint, I threw aiJe
my robe, anc? quitted the couvent. My Su
perior wrote me to retorn within ten days
or consider myself virtually excommunica
ted, although the Pope's anathemas might
not yet have been promulgated. 1 replied

vife is reviewing the business of the past
year, and finds that of the estimated crop
grown in Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana and
Illinois, amounting to 121,000 hogsheads,
Louir. ville received about 40,000 hogsheads,
worth at least $4,100,000. She has thirty
tobacco factories employing a capital of $1,

mond, Va., during the last twelvemonths,
has manufactured over 12,0u0.UOO pounds
of chewing tobacco.and about 800,000 pounds
of smoking tobacco, paying into the internal
revenue thereon nearly $4,000,000 as duty.
Think of the enormous amount of puffing
and chewing done in consuming this enor
inous quantity of vegetable product.
Deerycd Compliment. The senti
ment in the annexed paragraph, from an
exchange, meets our hearty approval :
"The Ilarrisburg Telegraph has done
noble service during the campaign, just end
ed. It has been edited with great vigor,
and if it will now keep a sharp lookout for
the different schemes that will be organ
ized to get the cash out of the State Treas
urer, in one way or another, it will put the
Republican party nnder a double debt of
gratitude. Economy must now be the word
of the National.State and city authorities."
The late authentic news as to the wherea
bouts of Dr. Livingstoae, the indomitable
explorer, says that he is not only alive and
well, bat in prosecuting bis geographical
researches has discovered that one of the
sources of the Nile, emptying into the great
lake V ictoria Tyanza, rises some teu degrees
south of the Equator. This.if correct, makes
the Nile the longest river in the world. A
fair idea of the long line of the Nile may be
formed from the fact that tho distance be
tween its last reported source and its delta
along the Mediterranean is equal to the dis
tance from Lima, in Peru, to the city of
New York, or from the City of Mexico a
way up to Mount St. Elias, the end of the
backbone of this continent, in Alaska.
A Washington dispatch states that Attor
ney General Hoar, in conversation with a
friend a lew days ago, stated that he was
not a candidate for the Supremo Bench, and
would not take it if offered him. It turns
out that Edwin M. Stanton is the most
prominent candidate for any vacancy that
it may be necesssary to fill in the Supreme
Court, and the President, it is said, b not
avers to his appointment. A very large
number of letters recommending hiui have
been received from the most prominent law
yers e-f the country. It may be stated, how
ever, iu justice to Mr. Stautou, thai he has
made no perscal elTort or application for
the position, but he is strongly urged by
his friends and emiuent members of the bar.

Ar Earthqcakk. On Friday last, Oct,
22d, a severe shock from an earthquake oc
curred at Newhuryport, Mass., shaking the
doors and windows and tuacy movable things
in the houses. The people generally were
awakened by the commotion. An old brick
mansion house, built seventy years go, and
having the thick massive walls common to
those days, was shaken from the roof to the
cellar, rattling the doors and windows, and
creating general alarm among the occupants.
The people in their beds were very sensible
of a vibrating uiovemeut below them.
At Waldsborro, Maine, it said the shock
was very severe, and that the earth opened
eight or ten foet wide causing great alarm
in the village.
At St. John's N. B., the shock was strong.
Houses were shaken violently. Everybody
was awakened from their slumbers, and
many rushed from their homes in alarm,
but no material damage was dne. At St.
Andrew's the shock was more severe, throw
ing down chimneys and cracking walls of
houses. Similar shocks were felt at Halifax.
Spain. The bill suspending civil rights
in Spain passed the Cortes on the night of
October 5th, when the Republican minority
led by Castclar abandoned the Congress in
a body. Prim made an appeal to them to
stay, half entreating, half menacing. Ife
urged them to meet together and consider
the propriety of remaining at their post ; but
unfortunately he accompanied his words
with some intimations they, in their excited
state, oould not brook such as that if they
retired he should consider they had joined
the enemy, and he should meet iron with
iron, force with force. . Castelar rose and
thanked him for his remark, which, he said,
contained two things a counsel and a
threat. If there had only been the coun
sel they might have pansedbefor it, "but
before the threat, neverr" Thus saying,
he and his companions left the building.
France. Special interest again attaches
to the news from France. The Emperor
has given notice that he will be prepared
for any emergency growing out of the pro
posed irregular meeting of the Corps Legis
lat if, an the 26th inst., and the troops are
gathering in Paris to enable him to keep
hisjpromise to "insure respect for the law
and the maintenance of tranquility." There
is no little significance in the caution to
"all good citizens to be on their guard a
gaiiiht imprudent curiosity." This appears
to be the latest mode of cautioning citizens
to beware how they kick against the pricks
of Imperialism as practiced in France.
