io relieve pur beloved country from the
Scourge of civil war, and to permit us to se

blessings which during the past year He has.
continued to heap upon us, for abundant and
gathered harvests, for thriving industry, for

lion, and to exterminate the system of Human
Slavery which caused it.

Tlie Late Elections.
State elections were held in Maeaachu
tetts, New York, New Jersey, Maryland,
Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota on
Tuesday of last week. That Massachu

as a sure thing; that New Yoik should

A Lie Xailsd.
Some of our readers may have 6cen, on
the eve of the election when it was too
late to contradict it an affidavit emana
ting from one Sergt. Henry Roat, of the
54th regiment P. Y., charging it upon
Col. J. M. Campbell, commander of that
regiment, that ho did barbarously mal
treat and abuse him the aforesaid Sergt.
Roat on a certain occasion during the
term of service of tho regiment, and this
without just cause and provocation. The
specifications the Sergeant set forth were
heartrending in the aggregate and in the
detail. Premising that it was fr over
staying a furlough that he was punished,
be alleged that, by Colonel Campbell's or
ders, he was haudcuffed around a tree for
one hour, and then lor one hour to the
limb of a tree as high as he could reach ;
that the weather was so intensely cold
that his feet and hands were badly fro
zen ; that during tho time he was hand
cuffed, two companies, disgusted with the
inhumanity of the treatment accorded
him, threatened to turn out and release
him, &c, Sec. The affidavit first appeared
in the Ilarrisburg Patriot & L'nion, which
was couvincing proof to us that it was
sheer fabrication. But appearing as it
did on the very eve of the election, when
Colonel Campbell, our candidate for Sur
veyor General, could not possibly refuto
its charges, the confirmation was made
doubly sure that it was a Copperhead lie,
got up for partisan purposes..
The true state of the matter is given
by Capt. John Sutcr, late of Co. A, 54th
P. V., in a communication to the Johns
town Tribune of last week. According to
this gentleman's statement, Roat absented
himself from his command without per
mission, and remained absent, greatly to
the prejudice cf the good order aud disci
pline of the rcgimeut. lie was subse
quently arrested, and submitted to a judi
cious system of punishment, but that the
punishment was barbarous or inhuman
the Captain pronounces to bo false. On
being returned to the regiment, Roat was
committed to the guard-house; afterward
he was handcuffed to a tree in full view
of the company for thirty or forty min
ute?, when he was -eleased and returned
to the guard-house. lie was not, says the
Captain, afterward handcuffed to a tree
ho was not handcufied the next day nor
any subsequent day the weather was not
I intensely cold, aud the whole story of his
being frozen, and of the two companies
threatening to turn out and release him,
is "utterly false in each and every particu
lar." Thus falls to pieces another vilo Cop

To his Fpiritual advisers he said, "I am
innocent; I have to die, but I can die
like a man; I have hope in the future; I
have nothing more to say." The drop
fell at 10.32 a. ni., and the body was
left hanging for the space of fifteen min
utes, when it was cut down aud interred
in the yard of the penitentiary, in a line
with those of Mrs. Surratt, Payne, Ilar

Roger A. Pry or, the former Vir

The XXXIXth Congress will con

In the Senate, the non. Lafayette S. Fos
ter, of Connecticut, will take the chair as
President, pro ttm.t with Col. J. W. For
uey, of Pennsylvania, as Secretary. The
majority ot the Unionists is here so heavy
that in no case can it be overcome except
by division; the only Opposition Sena
tors entitled to take seats without inquiry
being Messrs. Wright and Stockton, of
New Jersey, Ruckalew, of Pennsylvania,
Riddle and Saulshury, of Delaware, Davis
and Powell, of Kentucky, R. Johnson, ot
Maryland, Hendricks, of Indiana, Mc
Dougall, of California, and Nesmith, of
Oregon 11 in all, to 38 Unionists. If
every State lately in Rebellion were to
have Senators present at the hour of open
ing the Session, (as several of them will
not,) and if each were to claim and hold
his seat, there would still be a Union ma
jority. So no more need be said of the

little different. The Representatives
who will take seats of course are politi

not yet been recognized and ratified by

Were all these admitted at the out
set, without demur or scrutiny, they would
uot all affiliate with the Opposition; and
even if they did, their combined strength
would fall far short of a majority. Their
candidate for Speaker would fall full 40
votes behind, notwithstanding that sick
ness will prevent the attendance of sever
Rut the Members from the States lately
in revolt cannot tak their seats at the
outset, so as to vote for Speaker and Clerk.
Not even such devoted and unwavering
Unionists as Horace Maynard, represent
ing a district that, though temporarily
overborne by rebel bayonets, never falt
ered in or concealed its devotion to the
Union, will be admitted without prelimi
nary investigation and scrutiny; Our
Copperheads Lever peeped when the last
Congress refused to count tho electoral
votes of Tennessee, Arkansas and Louisi
ana for Lincoln, because those States
were not "in their proper relations to the
Union" when they voted ; and the same
reason will now prescribe an inquiry and
report by a Committee before their Rep
resentatives can be admitted to seat?.
The recognition of a State which ha?
been for years in open and deadly hostility
to the Union as once more entitled to a
share in the Government of that Union
by sending Members to Congress. i3 a
very grave act. No mere Clerk dare pre

termination the tribes have agreed with
us to prohibit the institution, tho' thus far
they have not done it formally. In Flor

President Johnson's Policy.
Hon. A. K McClure, editor of the
Chambersburg Repository, had a confer
ence lately with President Johnson, dur
ing which a variety of political questions
were discussed. From a report of the
conversation which took place, as pub
lished in an editorial letter to the Reposi
tory, we take the following extracts :
"However reticent the President may
be on some issues, he seems to have no
reserve as to the policy he couceives to
be the true one to bring back the insur
gent States. He discussed the position
of those States and their people with great
interest and occasional warmth, and with
a frankness that left no doubt, as to his
purpose. He holds that they were never
out of the Union ; that secession, however
accomplished as a fact, cannot be accom
plished in law ; that the supreme authority
of the Government in those States was
not overthrown by rebellion, but simply
in abeyance, and of course it logically
follows his premises, that, since rebellion
has ceased, the States resume their proper
place in the Union and restoration is ac
complished. "He spoke freely of the pro
posed trial of Davis, and said that as yet
the Government had not taken any steps
in the matter. If he is to be tried in
Richmond, the trial must necessarily be
postponed until the civil authority is fully
restored, and then it will be a question
for consideration under the condition of
affairs which at that time may exist. As
Virginia is still practically under martial
law, certainly wholly under military rule, I
judge that many moons may wax and wane
before we can have a great State trial. I
do not question the wisdom of this delav,
for it is certainly better for the govern
ment io ovoid the danger of defeat in at
tempting to convictof constructive treason
in Washington, than to force a trial which
might afford a technical escape for Davis
and leave the great questions undetermin
ed. If I were going to guess on the sub
ject, I would say that Davis is more likely
to be paroled during tho next year thau
to be tried, and if he is ever hanged, he
must do it himself.
"On the future of tho freedmcn the
President talks well. He displays more
sense than sentiment on the question,
snd means to solve the question fairly as
demanded 'by civilization and humanity.
Of their ability to win a position that will
enable them to be incorporated into our
system of government as citizens, he is
not eminently hopetul, but feeh that it
must be fairly tried with an open field for
the negro. That failing, he looks upon
colonization as the only alternative."
A Conqsierer After the Copper
heads. When Gen. Sherman returned from the
South, to present the laurels of his great
victory io the Government, some slight
disagreement between the hero and the
Secretary of War produced a profound
sensation in the circle of copperheadisra.
It was at once proclaimed that Sherman
must be made President ia 1863 that he
wj3 a Democrat, because of which the
"Abolition. Administration" hated and
slighted him. Now, lit us. see what
Sherman himself puts on record on this
subject. The followiug .'etter, addressed
to Gen. Kilpatrick, of New Jersey, has a
volume of meaning for "men cf all par

Sir: I have observed with interest your
political couflict in New Jersey. It is
really provoking, hardly worthy of a seri

from every conceivable motive. Sonic
from sheer cowardice, others to oppose a
political party. Some because they
thought W3 could not whip the South,
and now that it is reduced to demonstra

duct even to themselves. I have no pa
tience with that class of men, and believe
the people of the South have more re

Gold in Greene County.
Considerable excitement has lately been
created in Greene county by the develop
ment of gold deposits in a phaft sunk for
tho purpose of searcbiug for oil. The
discovery was made on lands leased by
the Amber Coal Company. Thi3 com
pany is boring for oil on the farm owned
by the estate of David Keener, deceased,
in Dunkard township, and at the depth
of 075 feet struck a strata of very hard
substance which proved to be from two
and a half to three feet thick. As soon
as they had drilled through this hard
vein, the well was reamed to tha bottom,
and upon sand pumping, fragments of ore
were brought to the surface resembling
the gold bearing quartz. A lump the
sizs of a hulled hickory nut was immedi
ately forwarded to Mr. McGinley, at Phil
adelphia, President of the Company, who
had it analyzed. It was found to contain
gold over twenty. carats fiue. Tho value
of 82,33 was returned to Mr. Long, as
the product of the small lump of ore, be
sides several small quantities which were
reserved as specimens. A committee was
apointed to visit the well and collect all
the necessary information and report
thereon. This discovery has created
much very wild excitement, and very wild
speculations are rife respecting it. We
presume a scientific investigation will be
made preparatory to shafting lor the pre
cious metal. If these are facts, it is an
important feature in the mineral produc
tion oT Greene county..

The Grain Speculators of Chicago.
Chicago is the great grain depot of the
Northwest. At that point is annually
shipped to the South and East enormous
quantities of grain, so that the accommo
dations for its storage are of immense
character. Between the speculators, who
buy and sell, aud the corporations that
own the elevators for the storage of grain,
there has recently been engendered some
jealousy, the latter believing that the
former were making more than a fair
share of the profits in the sale of grain at
Ch icago. Accordingly the owners of the
largest elevators announced that on all
the grain received on the 1st instant,
and remaising in store after, the 15th,
one per cent per bushel for every Svc days,
or parts thereof, would be charged. The
nnnouncement, of course, created some
excitement, as the amount is said to be
heavy at this time, and in a very few days
th e channel of shipment will be closed.
Some parties express the conviction that
the elevator gentlemen have no right to
enhance their charges in this way, after
the stipulations to the business public,
and that the usual "winter rates" of
storage can only be claimed, and they
very plainly eiguify their intention of
tryiug the matter before the courts. It
H hinted, too, that the power of these
big concerns should have been regulated
and defined long ago, and the precaution
then omitted to guard against rapacitj',
will be adopted at the next Legislature.
Others venture the opinion, that the
movement of the warehousemen ia only a
spur to induce shipments. These heavy
amounts of grain are held, we presume,
for higher prices, and it is hardly proba
ble that the people of the country will
care much how far the etorage account
runs up. Six cents per bushel per month
until the opening of navigation, will prob
ably be more than the advance io quota
tions, and the speculators and warehouse
men can settle the profits between them
selves. The holders are in a quandary
if they ship now, their plans are not re
alized ; if they don't, the etorage threatens
a loss. Now and then greed meets with
a suitable discomfiture.
The extension of the Capitol at
Hariisburg is rapidly approaching com
pletion. The Telegraph says the struc
ture ia already under root, and .workmen
aro engaged in erecting the pillars in frnt
of the extension. They will be similar to
those at the entrance to the rotunda, and
of a superior quality of stone. It is the
intention of the authorities to have the
building finished and ready for use at the
earliest possible moment. We learn that
the whole of the upper story of the ex
tension will be appropriated for the use of
the State Library, the present location of
