S. i. ROW, SUITOR AlIB PROPRIETOR-
CLEARFIKLD, PA., JAN. 25, 1S7J.
General John A. Logan has been elected
to the United Slates Senate from Illinois.
Governor English and Lieut. Governor
Ilotchkiss, have been renominated by the
Democracy of Connecticnt.
IIou. F. T. Frelingbuyson, of Newark,
lias been 5-electrd by the Republicans of New
Jersey as thrir candidate for U. S. Senator.
A Domination is equivalent to an election in
Aftor an animated contest the Hon. T.
W. Ferry, ex-Congressman of Grand Ha
ven, has been elected to the United States
Senate by the Michigan Legislature, receiv
ing quite a large majority of votes.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ha-; de
cided that, if a man puts his head or arm
through a ear window, and is injured by
coming in contact with something that reach
es close to the window he cannot recover for
the injury, the act being considered negli
gence ou the part of the passen.cer.
The Missouri RriniLlican states that "the
Republicans in 1872 will be compelled to
choose between Grant and a Democrat, and
if the choice is a hard one, they will have
only their own party to blame for it." The
Republican party is very thankful for these
kindly feelings, but it feels that the choice
is not a hard one, and should the emergency
arise, it will in all human probability select
Gen. Grant. At present it has no intention
of accepting a Democrat.

An exchange eays "the miracle of the ac
has been found in the person of Wni. f I.
North, who won't take the State Senator
bbip of the Tenth Districtof Wisconsin, be
cause he only got the certificate of eleetiou
on account of the misprinting of his oppo
nent's name on some mx hundred ballots."
How different the action of Deehert & Co.,
of this State. They perpetrated the mo.M
gross and villainous frauds, aod than pet
aside the law to prevent an investigation and
exposition of tLt'ir rascality.
The trial of the -election rioters, at Cam
deri, N. J., is regarded with considerable
intere.-t as affording the test of the validity
of the fifteenth amendment. The riot was
oi i'uated far the purpose of preventing col
ored men from voting, and succeeded in its
rVjeet. The trial will, therefore, involve
their right to vote, the plea being set up.in
defense, that it was in the interest of a pure
ballot. The rioters will be made to realize,
wc think, that they are not the custodians
of the honor and laws of the country.
Democratic journals do not entirely agree ,
over Hoffman's .Message. The Cincinnati
Enquirer, a strong Democratic journal, is
very fierce over the matter, and compliments
Governor Hayes, of Ohio, for leaving out
of his message the discussion of National
politics. This is a sad rebuke to Hoffman
and otlierStute Executives, who have deem
ed it their political duty to give their indi
vidual opinion of various National questions
entirely outside of their State Governments.
Hoffman, however, was looking fro the Pres
idency when he wrote his Message.
It would scorn from the Missouri Repub
lican, the Democratic organ, that the party
in that State is not harmonious over the
election of I.lair to the U. S. Senate, on ac
count of his having bier: a "Radical." To
appease the malutKitents, the Republican
says that Dlar'"mad', all the amende hono
rable that any man could do, when he be
came that odious and despised thing a
Democrat." Verily; modern "Democracy"
is but a "thing" which, by il persistent
rascalities, ha made "itself ""odious" ta all
honest men. We thank the Republican for
its candid admission of the fact.
As a result of the dirisfons in the ranks
of the Republican party in Missouri Frank
1. Rbir is elected U. S. Senator. He will
enter the Senate as the champion of extreme
views relative to reconstruction, and the pol
icy suitable for the Democratic party. His
announcement of these views pending the
last providential campaign, really did the
Republican party a service. It dismayed
the Democracy, and thus helped to accom
plish their defeat. His influence now may
prove beneficial. The party lines will, so
fur as he can control, be more rigidly drawn,
and if the result is not to eause a greater
harmony in the Republican ranks, and more
jH-rlei.-t unity of policy we shall bo greatly
mistaken. At all events, no ono trill be like
ly to harmonize with Mlair.
The Democracy are inclined to reflect on
Vance, of North Carolina, f. t not resigning
his position as Senator-elect of the United
State. The trouble is that if he does not
resign iu time, and his jo!itical disabilities
are not removed, he will not only lose bis
seat in the Senate, but Senator Abbot, the
present incumbent, who is a Republican,
will be given the place, and the Democracy
thus lose one Senator. But Vance will not
re.-i-n, atid clings to the hope that his disa
abilities may be removed. Should he per
sist in his purpose there will be gnashing of
teeth among the Democracy of North Caro
lina. We fancy that inasmuch as they elec
ted Vauce with a full knowledge of his inel
igibility, mid in so doing ptirposaly (It mi If J
bis rebel record in the face of Congress,
there will be very little sympathy for them,
should their plan miscarry, and they find

by a good Republican.
Civil Service Eefona.
The subject of "Civil Service Reform"
is again being agitated, and its advocates are
profuse in predictions' of the good results
that will follow its adoption. The "wild
hunt for office," will be summarily stopped ;
those who dispense or control patronage will
get rid of an intolerable nuisance ; public
business be brought to a superlative state
of perfection ; and the National Capita
transformed into an earthly paradise, instead
of being a sink of corruption. The first of
these ends might possibly be attained, but
w think there is not only a good deal of the
impracticable, but a large amount of hum
bug in the whole scheme. Persons holding
civil offices for a protracted period of time
do not always discharge their duties most
efficiently and faithfully. The "service"
has often been benefitted by pushing super
annuated fogies "off their stools," and put
ting new, live men in their places. There
is also a vast deal of gammon in the notion
that Senators and Representatives are nearly
" bored to' death" by office-seekers; for if
the President or a Cabinet officer sees fit to
make an appointment without first consult
ing them, fault-finding and denunciation fol
low as a matter of course, by these same
Senators and representatives. Nor is it
likely to put a stop to the nepotism and fa
voritism, which is alleged to Tprevail. On
the contrary, if office tenures are made to
continue for life, those who dispose of or
control patronage will just as surely provide
places for relatives and friends, and will be
the more auxinus to do so, in view of the
life tenure. But the most serious objection
to the measure is its anti democratic and
anii-rcpublican tendency. It would inevit
ably result in the formation of exclusive
circles an aristocracy of position similar
to that now existing in the Army and Navy.
It would be a retrograde movement a step
backward; for this "civil service" idea is
mainly borrowed from England, where com
fortable places are thus provided for the
younger sons of great families, whose chief
merit lies, not in qualifications, but in the
faet that they can command influence with
the dispensers of royal patronage. The
idea of competitive examinations would, in
practice, prove a delusion as these exam
ining boards would be subject to precisely
the same influences which now control the
appointing power. Public officers, assured
of permanent position, would grow super
cilious, unaccommodating, and neglectful of
duty, unless, with the introduction of a lile
tenure, a radical change cau be wrought in
There are unquestioned evils connected
with our American system of office-seeking
and place-ret ling ; but they cannot be cured
by th's much vaunted universal panacea of
"Civil Service Reform." At best, it would
be but the substitution of another class of
evils, foreign to our Republican ideas an
aping of debauched monarchical systems,
where blood aristocracy and money command
power and place. A better plan would be
to diminish executive patronage by making
Postmasters and otherqfiieialseiective offices,
under proper restraints and conditions.
Nepotism would be broken op, and while at
times incompetent men might be chosen,
this class would not be more numerous un
der an elective than under an appointive
ystem, while direct responsibility to the
people would tend to secure courteous, faith
ful discharge of duty.
How they Did It.
On the first page of to day'b JOURNAL,
under the caption of "A Democratic Out
rage," we publish an article from the Pitts
burg Gazette, which fully and clearly ex
poses the most flagrant outrage ever perpe
trated in our State Senate. 5Ir. Lyr.da'1,
of Philadelphia, having filed his petition
setting forth hi3 intentions to contest the
seat of Mr. Dechert, recently returned as
elected from the First District, to SI! the
vacancy occasioned by toe death of Mr.
Watt, the Democratic Members in the Sen
ate, in violation of law and precedent, by
their united votes, refused to grant Mr.
Lyndall the privilege of a contest by re
fusing to draw the customary committee,
designated by law. But real the article of
the Gtzefte., to which we refer, and see to
what villainous means the Democratic mem
bers of the Senate resorted for the purpose
of maintaining themselves iu power this
winter. It has no parallel in the whole
history of that once august and honorable,
but uow degraded body.
Poor little Delaware is inflicted with a ter
rible incubus the i?aulsburys. They run
the "mershecn" in their interest entirely.
The other day, when a United States Sen
ator was to be elected, Willard (the present
incumbent,) and John were the opposing
candidates. The contest waxing uncom
fortably hot, Eli was thrust forward as
a "compromise" candidate and elected.
Verily, such favoritism has no parallel in
politic in this country. But then, Dela
ware is lit tle State, and the Saulsburys a
large family, nd what is the use of spoiling
another family by electing them to State or
Kedcral offices? One ruined family in that
little "tweet-potato patch" is enough.
The Montgomery (Ala.) Journal, com
menting t'pon the lawless condition of many
of the Southern States, says: "Here in
Alabama the Ku klux bands ride over the
country with more impunity than before.
The groans of the murdered and lacerated
Republicans, borne by the midnight air to
the cars of the authorities, fail to elicit their
ympathy, and in many sections men are
made to fed that the annunciation of Repub
lican sentiments will be mot with prompt and
speedy punishment:" It also says of the
depreciation of Alabama bonds: "It is
simply the result which we anticipated if
the Democrats were successful."
The Income Tax. There is such a thing
it seems, as riding a hobby to death. Con
gress has legislated all the revenue out of
the income tax, and we are startled by the
statement of the new commissioner of in-
I tcrnal revenue that it r.ctually costs more to
I collect that iniquitous levy than it returns
to the treasury. This argument ought to
i satisfy those who still demand its imposi
! tiun, whether c. institutional or unconstitu-
"Washington City Gossip.
From a communication of the Postmaster
General to the Senate, we learn that an ef
fort has been made to ascertain how much
free matter passed through the postoffices
for a period of six months, from January 1
to June 30, 1S70. The total number of of
fices that made report was only 8,5S3, some
20,010 failing to report. The returns from
the reporting offices show that in six months
there were transmitted 5,140,790 franked
letters. The postage on these amounted to
$655,543. There were also 2,047,971 pounds
of other franked matter, on which the pos
tage would have amounted to $200,843.
From the estimate of the Postmaster Gene
ral, had all the offices reported for one year,
the amount would have reached $2,543,
The House bill ceding back the jurisdic
tion to Ohio, of the grounds of the Soldiers'
Home was concurred in by the Senate. It
was opposed for the reason that it did not
give the inmates ef the Soldiers' Home a
right to vote in Ohip, but was finally pass
ed. Mr. Axtnll, independent Democrat, male a
speech in the House, in support of the ap
propriation for the bureau of education. This
motion was strenuously opposed by the lead
ers of the Democracy, who exhibited on the
floor the same spirit and temper which has
prompted their constituents so often to burn
the school houses and churches of the freed -men.
Mr. Axtell, who was elected from
San Francisco under circumstances of the
most flattering kiud, personally had the mo
ral independence to differ from the mass of
his party, boldly advocating the constitu
tionality of the bureau. It was under this
well worn plea of unconstitutionality that
the appropriation was sought to be choked
off. Mr. Axtell met his political colleagues
squarely on this issue, arguing broadly that
whatever is good for the Republic is consti
tutional. Good doctrine, that.

The letter of Special Treasury Agent
Wicker, to the Secretary of the Treasury,
inclosing communications relative to the un
lawful acts of wreckers on the Flvrida coast

That there should be at present no law that

very strange. In October, Spanish nud Brit

crimes in the fnture.
In the House of Representatives at Wash
ington on Wednesday last, the legislative
appropriation bill was finally passed. Two
important amendments to the bill as origin
ally reported were made, increasing the ap
propriation for the Bureau of EJucation
from $14,500 to $20,500, and the salaries of
the Chief Justice and Associate Justices of
the Supreme Court to $3,500 and $8,000
respectively. Both of these pieces of Re
