Al the municipal election bald in Lan
caster City, on Friday last; the Democrats
achieved a very decided triumph. That
stern old Spartan. Mayor Sanderson, was
re-elected for the sixth , time, by 511 ma
jority, a gain of 350 over lest spring. The
Democrats also elected the three city Au
ditors, 7 out of 9 members of Select Coun
cil, and 19 out of 27 members of Common
Council. The last Legislature

man-per of voting, and prescribing new

The election for Governor, LiNitenant
Governor, other State officers and Can
gossmen in Kentucky was held on Sat
urday. Notwithstanding a third ticket
had been placed in • the field to distract
the Democratic vote; it does not appear
to have effected the result to any materi
al extent` The vote was lighter than
usual, but the Democracy made a clean
sweep, carrying not only the State ticket
by a large: proportionate majority than
ever before, but all of the Congressmen.
The Congressional delegation from Ken
tucky in the lust House consisted of five
Democrats and four Republicans,—an im
pottant gain. When the . Republican
Congressmen were chosen, a portion of
the State was intimidated by the military,
but now that a free ballot has been re
stored * to her people, Kentucky again
sends a united delegation. The home of
Henry Clay remains true to the principles
of her favorite Eon. -
Mr. Scott, the Democratic candidate for
Judge of the Baltiedore City Court, was
elected on the Ist,, over the Conservative
Republican and Radical candidates. The
vote was as fellows ; Scott, Democrat,
11,31; Kenly, Radical, 4,887 ; Johnson,
Conservative, 1,960. The Democratic poll
was light, because Scott had a "sure thing
of it," and would have been 5,000 more

At the election for city officers in the
city of New Albany, Indians, the whole
Democratic ticket was successful by un
precedented majorities. Mr. Sanderson,
Our candidate for Mayor, had. over oto

the large number of councilmen chosen
only one is a Radical. .
The "Democratic element," as our daily
cotemporary takes pleasure in styling it,
seems to be rising in the West. Our friends

have not before carried for years. The
Radical papers there, as well as here, have
even up the business of writing obituaries

F FELEEsT GoVERMENT ON TOE
ACE OF TUE EARTH: ,
The time was when . this was the corn
Mon expression of every person who spoke
or wrote about the United States. It was
the siaple boast, of American citizens
that while despotism or anarchy reigned
supreme elsewhere, here, on the Western
Continent, we had established a Govern
ment based upon the affections of the
people, where every Man had a guarantee
for the most perfect freedom consistent
with the public order and interests. How
strangely events have changed us in that
respect, let a few instances in the system
whieh las been adopted for the govern
ment of the South answer.
Gen. Pope has ordered all those persons
in Georgia who are still styled by courtesy
officers of the State Government, to refrain
from attempting to.exercise any influence
upon - the people either for the purpose of
persuading them to reject any_proposition
of Congress or of dissuading them from
taking any active steps to do whatever that
body desires. These officials are prohibit

Is it not enough to make one's cheek!
tingle with shame to think - 6f events like
these occurring upon American soil, and
under- direetion of the very Government
established by our forefathers to perpetu
ate the boon of liberty for their descend
ants? In reading them, it is hard to avoid
being reminded of the struggle for free
dom in SwitLerland, when Gessler's hat ,
was set up in the market place , of Actor%
and the people "were compelled to bow
down before it as a test of "loyalty 1" Who
that has a particle of good sense believes
that such orders as we have recited, and
such a mode of Government as has been
adopted for the Simthern States, will have
the slightest tendency towards increasing
'their devotion to the Union ? The mere
fact of being obliged to perform any duty,
be it ever so much. in consonance with his
feelings, by compulsion, is contrary to the
instincts of every true born American. If
the South were as "disloyal" at heart as
we believe it te be sincerely 'loyal," if it
hated the flag of our common country as
warmly as it has resolved to adore it,there
could be, no more certain plan adopted to
perpetuate the sentiment of - dislike and
revenge than ouch as we have enumerated.
A species of political insanity seems to
have seized possession of those in authori
ty, and every day brings to our notice
some act of incipient despotism which ten
years ago would have oxcited a thrill of
indignation throughout the laud, and
swept their perpetrators into a gulf of ev
erlasting obloquy. Nothing is more eer.
tamp under the Heavens, than that, if this
system of nthi-Republican misrule con
tinues, it will &este a reaction which will
he . more calamitous in its results then the
most ardent lover of liberty dares to pre
dict at present.
A CIJAPTEIt OF I:4IFAMF
The notorious Sanford Conver, alias
Charles A. Dunham,. who was convicted
over two months nun, in the Criminal
Clint of the District of Columbia, on the
charge of perjury in connection with the
testimony before the House Committee on
the'Judiciary, relative to the assassination
Of President Lincoln' and implicating Jef
ferson Davis in the crime, many of our
readers will probably have seen, before
this, has been sentenced to ten years in
the Albany Poniteritiary..The conviction
of Conover and his sent ence to imprison
ment are eminently just; but justice is
not satisfied with this act, alone Of course,
it sounds well that this poor scamp should
be punished for his crime ; but', why
should his master, Joseph Thilt,.go free?
There are grave suspicions in the public
mind that, as compared with Holt, Cone
ver was more sinned against than sinning,
since he was a tool of the former. By all
means, then, let there be a public trial of
Joseph Holt; not a whitewashing affair
with a packed jury and a 'pliant. judge,
but an honest investivatioo,untrammelled
by the influences which tho War Depart
ment knows so well how to bring to bear
upon cohrts within its reach. Were, this
felldw, Holt, anything. of a man, he would
demand a thorough investigation of his
conduct ; his failure to .do so, together
with his efforts to thwart every such pro-,
ceeding, strengthen the suspicion which
exists against him.
The public will remember that when
Lincoln was assassinated Holt and Stan
ton took especial pains to impress upon
the mind of the President that there was.
evidence in possession of the Bureau of
Military Justice which implicated Jetler
son Davis in the assassination. The •Pres-i
ident wag then induced to offer a reward(
of $lOO,OOO for the capture of Davis. Af

knowing their statements to the President
were wholly without foundation, Set to
work to manufacture evidence upon
which Davis could he hung and the peo
ple's treasury robbed of one hundred
thousand dollars: How that work was

ment of Wm. Campbell, before the Judi
ciary Committee of the House. He got
up a false affidavit,in company with Cono
ver and Snevel, which strongly implica
ted Davis in a Ea em e to assassinate the
President ; but when brought before the
Judiciary Committee of the House he, as
well as Conover, repudiated the whole
thing. "Why," asked the Judiciary Com:
mittee-of Wm. Campbell, "did you make
thus false affidavit?" • "That," replied
Campbell, "will require a littigt explana
tion. I was informed by Mr. Conover
that Judge Holt bad offered a reward of
$lOO,OOO for the capture of Jefferson Da

to have a gang of hired purjurers hanging
about him for months and drawing the
pay for their perjury outot the money of
the people! Is there any lower depth?
CASE OF JEFFERSON DAVIS-This- case is
at last, and properly, brottlht to a point
on which a decided action will be insisted
on. It is ascertained that the prisoner's
counsel having determined to apply once
more for a writ of habeas corpus itt his be
half, one of them, (Mr. George Shea, of
this city,) made, on Wednesday of tail'
week, the application to Judge Under
wood, at Alexandria, Va. Judge Under
wood had, on a former application, denied
the motion on the ground, as we remens;
ber, that Mr. Davis was held as a prisoner
of, war, and that the Government had not
yet delivered bim up to the civil authori
ty. Nearly a year has passed since that
decision; and, inasmuch as the Govern
ment maintains the same
position to take any step toward bringing
the prisoner to, trial, or releasing him on
parole, as it has all his fellow captives, we
mast heartily WelcoMe the news that the
Judge has this time allowed the writ of
habeas corpus. It is returnable before the
Curt at Richmond, on Monday. the I.lth
inst. The G s , 'ernment shoulii, surely be
ready to proceed with the trial at this term
of the Court. if there be any purpose to
try him at all ; and, if not, the prisoner
should, as a matter of course, be admitted
to bail, or otherwise set at liberty. Two '
years have sped since he was captured ;
and, on the.l9th of this month, two years
will, have passed since he was immured in
Fortress Monroe. In view of these facts,
his longer detention in close confinement
while the prosecution refuses him a trial,
would be a glaring defiance of the settled
principles of civilized jurisprudence, and
a deep stnin upon the honor- of our court

Tun Impeachment Committee is again
in session at Washington, and we have.
the stereotyped announcsment that sev- -
eral important witnesses have been call.
ed." They have been "called" very often,
but to very little purpose. This whole
impeachment movement is an outrage and
a scandal. It has been Set on foot in u , ter
contempt of every principle of justice. and
is prosecuted without the slightest regard
to personal - rights or common decency.
Usually an impeachment or an indictment
of any sort proceeds upon &finite allega
tions of crime; but here it is set on foot
to see if possibly some charge of crime
may not be made. 'Usually no testimony
is admitted but that which is pertinent to
the case and from actual witnesses of the
acts alleged to have been committed ;—but
here the wildest and most absurd' hearsay
is taken as evidence, and no regard what
ever is paid to the legal maxims which
hold all men innocent until they are
proved guilty. The whole affair is an un
scruputous, malevolent crusade against
the President, having its origin in politi.
cal and personal disappointment, Ana for
its object . the accomplishment of party
purposes, attainable in no other way. It
is destined to re-act seriously on :those who
have made themselves responsible for it.
INGO/SASE OF; TAXATION.
Indiana, with a p . oputation of about a.
million and a half, is encumbered with an
annual taxation to the amount of forty
millions of dollars. It is doubtful, says
the Indianapolis Herald, whOher the en
tire surplus products of the State--last
year were sufficient to nay its taxation—
national, State, county and municipal. In
Connecticut, under Democratic rule, it
only cost one hundred and seventy-five
thousand dollars to run the State govern
ment. Under Radical rule it cost one mil
lion dollars. In New York the State tax
es have been increased from four mills to
one per cent-on the property of the Strte.
It is estimated that the State, with four
million inhabitants, will have to pay an
aggregate this year of one hundred million
dollars in taxes. against sixty-seven million
last year. • In Ohio, Illinois and other
States, a similar condition of affairs exists.
Under Radical rule the burden of taxation
is steadily augmenting. Radicalism is a
costly luxury. But it is for , the people to
ray whether they will indulge in it.
RADICAL. PRESII;RNTIAL ASPIRANTS —The
Washington correspondent of the D'troit
Post indulges in Presidential speculations,
which, we may cnnclude,will soon iwome
plenty as blackberries. Among the Sens
tors, Wade's chances are considered the
best, after which may be mentioned Fes
senden, Yates ; Morton and Trumbull.
,Pomeroy thinks his chances good for the
Vice Presidency. Senators sherman and
Sprague are looking after the ('hale inter=
eat. Gen. Grant is not talked of : now, be
ing regarded as too conservative, although
it is conceded that he would be elected if
nominated by either party. Among the
generals, Gen. George H. Thomas is the
most pobular with the Radicals. In the
House of Representatives, Colfax, Butler
and Logan are the only candidates. The
latter is also spoken of as the soldiers'
candidate on the Republican ticket for the
Vice Presidency. A ticket with Colfax
for President and Gen. 0. 0. Howard, of
the Freedmen's Bureau, for Vice Presi
dent, is also spoken of. It is seriously re
ported that Horace Greeley thinks his
chances for the Presidential office good.

The Democrats elected men to office for
their intelli,•encs and integrity, not for
their professed love of the negro. Honesty,
integrity and capability being the touch
stone to success, it, is important that men
should maintain untifetnished reputations
in order to' secure position. The rule

"Ora Murrar. Fniewn."—The greatest sue=
cess in book making that has been achieved
by any pubrieher_ in the present century is
the Dimond Edition of Dickens' works, now
being produced by Meosrei. Ticknor & Fields.
of Boston. Etch volume is presented in a
hook by itself, and the shape, size, and style
are all that could he desired. The publishers
RIM at giving the largest amount of rending
matter possible,• in the smallest convenient
space, and they have hit the mark exactly.
The type used, though small, has a face as
'clear and readable as if it wae , n couple. sizes
larger in body . , and is the handsomest we have
ever seen. We cannot speak of this edition
in terms that will adequately convey our ad
miration of its beauty and convenience, It is
just what every lover of Dickens has long cov
eted, and as such must attain a popularity
unequalled by any previous work issued in
this country. The illustrations and binding
are of a *character corresponding with the
splendid typographical taste displayed, and
nil together render it. a most.desirable hook
for,the'parlor, library or railroad enr.
"Our Mutual Friend" is the second of the
sefLes—the ever popular Pickwick papers
having been the first, Esch volume is com
plete In itself. and is sold at $1.50 with the
illustrations or $1.25 without. We cannot
eoncoiie how any person who makes the
slightest pretension to literary taste.can con
sent to do without the entire series.
