CLEARFIELD, PA., NOV. 3, 1869.
Falsefioods Nailed. The Copperhead
papers, Mreral weeks ago, circulated a story
that Mrs. Grant had taken part in the late
gold gambling in New York. This story
being promptly denied on the part of the in
dividual who were represented as having
bought gold on her account, these copper
nead vampires at once rehash their ttory
and charge Gen. Grant with speculating in
gold and Government bonds. As was an
ticipated, this charge has also been proven
false. Mr. Geo. E. Stone, of the firm of
Stone, Nichols & Co., the Wall street bro
kers who were represented as having made
the purchases for the President, says that
they "have never made a transaction of any
" kind or nature in which they had any
" reason to believe or suppose that Gen.
" Grant, either as an individual, or as Pres
" ident of the United States, had any direct
" or indirect interest" in the purchase of
either gold or Government bonds. Lying,
on the part of the copperhead Tpress, has
become so chronic, and bo barefaced, that
very few intelligent persons nowa days place
the least reliance in what tbey say well
knowing that their statements will be prompt
ly and most effectually exploded, at once.
A Fact. No other State shows such pro
gress in the matter of railways as our own
At present there are thirty-two roads build
ing in Pennsylvania, while in New York,
which comes second on the list, there are
but eleven. Many of these lines are short,
but, by their large number the stock is more
generally diffused and the whole State is
fast being opened vp and developed. The
main reason for this is that the products of
the Mate are of so valuable and weighty a
mature that railway are neeessary to trans
port them to the markets. Iron is found in
almost every county, coal is widely spread
beneath a large portion of the State, and
thus while furnishing transportation for
these, we give nearly all of our towns and
villages communication with the outer world.
There is probably no State in the world
where so large a proportion of the towns it
contains are so easily and quickly accessible,
or that shows on the whole more steady aud
olid progress, than oars.
Not a Democrat there. There is one
county in Iowa that, at the last election, cast
a clean Republican vote. Kossuth county
gave for Merril, the Republican candidate
for Governor, 345 votes for Gillespy, the
Democratic candidate, not one. There is,
observes a cotemparary, not a Democrat
left for seed even. Like the bird called
Dodo, the species seems to be extinct. If
things keep working a few years longer as
they have been there will be wore counties
like Kossuth, boih in and out of Iowa. The
time will come when moral and intelligent
people, who love their country and value
their freedom, will be ashamed to vote for
such men as the misuamed Democracy too
often put forward as candidates for high and
Newspaper Improvements. Last week
the Pittsburg Gazette, the oldest paper in
Western Pennsylvania, and a most ardent
advocate of true Republican principles,
made its appearance as a folio instead of-a
quarto as heretofore. The folio firm is de
cidedly the most convenient for a newspa
per, and the readers of the Gazette will, no
doubt, appreciate the change.
The Daily Dispatch also last week, chang
ed back from a quarto to a folio form ; be- I
sides, putting on an entire new dress, and '
now looks as fresh and tidy as any other news
paper in the State. The Ditpatdi is lte
pnbl lean in politics, and deserves & liKml
support at the hands of its party friends.
Democratic Wasts. The New York
Democrat,in a very emphatic manner, sets
forth the wants of its party as follows:
"The Democratic party of the United
States id sadly iu want. Its wants are not
numerous but severe. It wants brains. It
wants honesty. It wants pluck. It wants
unity of action. It wanu integrity of pur
pose." A sad picture, irely. A party without
"brains, honesty, pluck, or integrity," must
be a miserable thing indeed ; and the only
wonder is that so many gocd men still ad
here to it.
Breakers Ahead. Mr. Chalfant. the
defeated Democratic competitor of Mr.
Buekalew in the Northumberland Senatori
al district, ascribes his defeat to "the base
ystematie attempt of certain Sunbury pol
iticians to crowd him to the wall. They
have succeeded. How oon their turn will
come, time will tell." Auother case for the
political doctors !
The Speakerships. The names of
Messrs. Johnson of Crawford, Strang of
Tioga, Webb of Bradford, and Adaire and
Miller of Philadelphia, are mentioned in
connection with the Speakership of the
next House, and the canvass promises to be
lively. Speaker Stinson of the Senate will
be re-elected without opposition.
Rumor hath it that the friends of John

The Yerger Case.
As the Yerger homicide case, which is
now before the Supreme Court of the uni
ted States. is exciting some attention, and as
many persons seem to have forgotten its ori
gin, a brief statement of the facts in the case
may not be amiss at this time especially as
the decision of the Supreme Court may af
fect seme of the legislation of Congress in
relation to the rebellious States. The facts
in brief are :
CoL Crane, an ex-officcr of the United
States army, and who, at the time of the
homicide was Mayor of Jackson, Miss., had
in the pursuance of his official duty, caused
an attachment to issue against a piano in
1 erger s residence, to liquidate certain over
due city taxes. This occurred while the lat
ter was in attendance as a delegate at the
Memphis Commercial Convention. On Yer
ger s return, he took the levy as a personal
and intentional insult, and attempted to call
Crane to account, according to the miscalled
code of honor. This course wa blandly ig
nored by the Mayor, who, soon after the re
ception of Yerger's note, appeared on the
streets in the discharge of an official duty,
There he was met by Yerger, who brutally
murdered him in open day, iu the sight of
many witnesses without demanding one word
of explanation. For this crime he was ar
rested by order of the commanding officer
of the U. S. troops at the post, tried by a
military commission, and, as is believed, con
victed. To relieve him from military juris
diction an application was made to the
J udge of the U. S. District Court, a hear
ing took place on a writ of habeas c7,and
lhe judge remanded the culprit back to mil
An appeal was taken from the decision of
the District Court to the Supreme Court of
the United States. The argument on the
part of the prosecution was that the Su
preme Court had no jurisdiction in the case.
Chief Justice Chase, who delivered the
opinion of the Court, held that, as the act
f 1S67 did not in so many words repeal the
act of 1780, the Court had jurisdiction to
issue a writ of certiorari, and review the
proceedings. Here the case rests for the
present. Whether the Court will issue the
writ of certiorari and hahea corpus asked
for by the petitioner has not. yet been deter
mined but having already decided in favor
of its jurisdiction, the probability is that it
The object of getting the case before the
Supreme Court seems not to be so much for
the purpose of securing justice to Yerger,
as to see whether or not by some legal inge
nuity a rebel murderer can be screened, by
a quibble, from merited punishment. The
Court should pause and reflect before it com
mits an act that will destroy the high ven
eration in which it is held by the people. -
A Steamboat Disaster. The steamer
Stonewail was burned to the waters edge,on
Wednesday evening, October 24th, below
Cairo, resulting in a terrible loss of life, of
which Mr. Phelps, of Shreveport, La.,
gives the following particulars :
The boat caught fire at 6 30 o'clock Wed
nesday evening, at a point a little below
Neely's landing, and 125 mile below Cairo,
from a candle which the deck passengers
had placed hear some hay while they were
engaged playing cards. The Stonewall was
run on a gravel bar, the pilot supposing that
the passengers could wade ashore. Unfor
tunately, at the end of the bar there was a
slough, and here it was that the larger
number were drowned. The boat was run
on the bar but two feet, and the shallowest
point about her had five or six feet of wa
ter. She had so much hay on board that
she burned like tinder. All attempts to
extinguish the fire were without avail. The

(three hours after the accident) and render

passengers and crew only thirty are knowu

The Kew Jail.
The following well-digested article ap
peared in the Republican of last week. The
writer so nearly expresses our views on the
subject, as well as the views of a majority j
of the people of the county, that we re
print the article entire :
THE NEW COUNTY PRISON.
"Much public and private discussion has I
taken place in our midst during the past six
months with reference to the location of the
building in question. As we have no lots to
sell nor money to buy one, and therefore no
personal interest in the matter, we may with
nrODrietv irive our views Upon the vexed
question, and will therefore proceed to dis
cuss it wholly from a financial point of view,
"That the prison should be located near
the Court Ilouse no one denies ; but that it
must be erected on the present site is not
essentially necessary. When disconnected,
oue, two, three or four squares off, it makes
no difference. It costs no more, nor is the
nst any greater, to convey prisoners tnis
distance than to bring them from an adjoin-

Ilollidaysburg, or still farther off. What
will it cost the taxpayers during this period
to employ the Sheriff and a half dozen dep
uties to convey back and forth from eight to
sixteen prisoners, from four to six times a
year, during the sittings of the Court ? This
cauuot be done for a trifle. And then there
is no place to keep them during Court after
they are brought here. There must be a
good round sum expended to erect a build
ing to contain them, as they cannot be kept
n the Court room. This arrangement alone
will cost thousands of dollars.
'This is not all : A Sheriff s residence
must be procured for at least a similar pe
riod, at a cost of not less than $200 per an
num ; with a large amount ot other inci
dental expenses not dreamed of now.
'Again, it is stated that the present site
can be sold for $8,000 after the new prison
is completed. If this is true, why not erect
the new structure in the upper Park, which
wouia not cost the taxpayers one cent f
Where is the individual who would fail to
make an exchange of this kind on his own
hook ? Besides, the latter is by far the best
location. The question of keeping up drain-
age, and the ease by which water can be se
cured, alone, in our view, is enough to pro
duce a change. V e are aware that an ob
jection is made to erecting the prison in the
Park, upon the ground that the County
Commissioners have no title to the premises,
This is true, but it will cost nothing to secure I
one through the Legislature, from the fact I
that it is every taxpayer's interest to get a
prison lot for nothing, sell the old one for a
large sum and apply the proceeds towards
the erection of the new one, besides savin?
at least $5,000 in incidental expeuses. Men
are not often found acting against their own
financial interests : never in rasps nf tins
kind, unless they arq Vrholly xersonaln heir
Iliotives, and then thev are of no nul.L'r. vn-
sideration, and need only be probed a little
to reveal their nastiness. Public interest
should first be consulted upon this question,
and if private interest is adjusted by this
standard, then neither will receive injury.
"Citizens of this borough, more highly en
dowed with private than puhlic interests,
have the right to object to our views and
designs, but no one else has, hence we pro
pose to compromise with such. Our bo
rough is very much in need of a good lock
up or local prison. Now,why not allow the
County Commissioners to erect their build
ing on the Park, and iu consideration for
our title erect jointly a complete lockup on
the same ground? A building of this kind
must be built ere long by our borough au
thorities, and where ehje will they locate it?
If they are compelled to buy a lot and then
erect the building, it will be found to be
very expensive. Besides, a countv orison
and a lockuncan both be erected in the

Commissioners propose to erect a prison

other buildings, where the cost of water and
drainage will not amount to the interest, if
located on the old si to. And, better than
all,fe thousand dollar saved to tlie taxpay

Such are our views. If they are over-
