Friday Morning; - 1 . ov: 20th,

advertence last week an article slipped
into our paper somewhat derogatory to
the services of General REYNOLDS in
WiCare very glad, upOff the
-anthority-:of Gens. WagniNOToN
--LIOTT and J. P: HATCH, to assertthat
no more efficient or faithful officer is to
lie ~onnd in all the army than is Gen.
REYNOLOS. We make this correction
as a simple act, of „justice to a gallant
and meritorious. officer. s
_gar Gen, GRANT'S order tel the army,
reducing the great number of soldiers
kept on " extra ditty" at division, de
partment; and disfriet headquarters, is
an earnest of the sweeping measures of
retrenchment which we may- expect
after the 4tli of March. He has been
saving the public money zealously ever
since he has been in a position which
eriable'd him to control - army expendi

No SERIOUS election disturbances in
the Southern States have been'reported
at the military headgliartirs in Wash
ington, except the• riots in Savaunah
and Augusta. Only at the latter point
was military interference necessary.
No thanks to the Rebels, however, for
unwonted interference. It was the Re
publicans who made the sacrifice for
peace. Witness the Louisiana elec
tion;alloved to go byclefault, and the
'vote - in Savannah- r where -the Republi
cans cast a mere handful of votes in a
poll of four thousand.
AT the . inauguration
. of GRANT and
COLFAX a new era in the history of our
country will commence. Throughout
the whole land every citizen will be
protectef . l in his rights.- Free speech
will be as safein Texas as it is in Penn
sylvania. There will be no more Cam
illa or New Orleans massacrees ; no
Ku Klux Klans ; ' no whdlesale mur
ders of colored men; no banishment of
loyal white men by Southern. rebels.
Peace is now going to reign throughout
the whole country !
IT is A significant fact that Grant
and-Colfax carried every State in the
Union not tainted with Rebellion or
fraud-, New York and New Jersey
were each carried, as is well known,
by the fraudulent naturalization vote.
Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky, Geor
gia and Louisiana were each carried by
the Rebel clement, and the system of
terrorism which precluded loyai,Men
attending the polls. The political bat , ,
tle.wae identical-in every respect with
thesvar of the Rebellion, and in both

Tun SUTPRAGE AMEN D 312 NT.—The
Washingtmicorrespondont of the New
York Mbune says f "One of the first
measures that will be introduced into
Congress on its assembling in Decem
ber, will be a constitutional amendment
providing for the regulation of Suffrage
throughout the United States. A bill
will go:through without a doubt, and
the Legislatures of two - -thirds of the
States being Republican, the amend
ment will he ratified and the question
of Suffrage settled forever." General
Grant is said to favor the project.
THE new whisky tax, although an
improvement on the one it supersedes,
both in the sum and the method of its
-execution, evidently has not preVented
fraud on a large scale. New whisky
has been sold In quantities already at
ninety-five cents per gallon With the
direct taxes about Axty--two cents per
gallon ; grain thirty-seven or thirty=
eight cents for each gallon of proof
spirits ; labor, rent and interest hardly
under six, and bften over ten cents peg•
gallon, the first cost - ought to be at

This deed of violence. There was a'
detachment of United States troops at
Murfreesboro', but they could hot' in

ever,- that no Union men-were-killed
while attempting -to discharge' their
first political duty, as ,in Philadelphia
last October. ,
THE. LADY bF TIIE WHITE DOUSE.
—The Boston — Journal says that iu
Connection with the election of Gen.
Grant to the Presidency, and - only sec- ,
and to it in point of interest, is, the
promotion of Mrs. Grant to, the_potit of
"Lady of the White, - toe." It is
gratifying to think tha t , t o position
one which Mrs. Grant will fill with the.
true simplicity of en American Woman.
Theie will be no attempt - to • ape 'tile
grandeur of a regal CoUrt, and no val

Grant is a, lady who has maintained,
through every event which has , marked
the vicissitudes Of her husband's life,
a marked propriety of demeanor: . She

and has shared hishonora without be

• Mr. William . A. Wallace, the Chair
man of the Democratic State Central
Cominittee, is in the widest and truest
sense a veritable false prophet. iMany
of our citizens,- especially those of the.
Copperhead persuasion, will rentember j
th'e svecyc he endeavored to-make fron(
our Conrt Housestnfiaii;the day of
the D.emocraAeAlonirention, aft 4 lie
had been ungallantly refused admis
sien into -that 'delectable body. Said
lie;Anoking as wise as the most 'aged
owl known to the rural Cops of our
mountain - districts: "Philadelphia Re
publicans concede 'the city tons by
seven thousand; hut tie will not take
one loss than tei thousand.. And ) in
'Allegheny county, there 'is 'so great
dissatisfaction in the Republican party,
that I would not - he surprised if their
majority would be reduced - to almost
nothing. • Certain do I feel that Burt,
the Working-man's candidate, and

by at least - twenty thousand:''• Sich
may not haVe - been •the precise words
used by the Knight of the Coffee-pot
on, that occasion, but they .fully and
truly express the sentiments and pre
dictions he then and there uttered. •
Now let us see hoW little of truth
there was in his words. First, as to
Philadelphia. In spite of Wallace's
system of false and fraudulent natu
'ralization carried oil in the very highest
of our Tribunals, Philadelphia_ gave
him back the lie in the shape of a ma
jority of over five•thousand for Grant
and Colfax; and Allegheny, where he
asserted there was so great dissatisfac;
tion among the Republicans, gave our
standard-bearers the unprecedented
majority of about eleven thousand;
While our glorious old Commonwealth,
Witold; 'instead of fulfilling his
traitorous prophecy of giving - Seymour
and Blair at least twenty thousand,
has 'rolled up for Grant and Colfax-the
overwhelming majority of tiveistp-eight
thousand--eight hiodieel and nincey
No dordit when Mr. Wallace made
these predictions hehad full confidence
in his ability by colonization and fraud
uletit to carry the State
for Seymot.r and Blair by overriding
the honest choice and will of the peo
ple in this manner. ,But, thanks to the
loyal men of the State, his evil designs
were4iscoVered in tine to thwart them,
if not entirely, at least sufficiently to save
the Commonwealth from passing into
`the hands of the Rebel-symptithizing
Democracy. Fraud and corruption
won for them in New Jersey and New
York, but most signally failed here
the old K evstone.
It would be but simple justice to the
honeSt men of both political parthis in
the-State, if these gross though unsuc
cessful fraudalveretraced up, and this
man Wallace and 'his coadjutors, pun
ished for their conception and, perpe
tration: • Surely the Senate of. Penn
sylvania should not be disgraced by a
man on whom even a suspicion of this
Next year we will have a governor
to elect, and such steps should now be
taken as will effectually prevent any
more such frauds on the part of the
Democratic leaders at that. time. The
loyal people of the State are determin
ed that Gov. Geary shall be ro-elected
.Lyn majority of at least twenty thdu
eaud, and the easiest way in which to
accomplish such a result is to see to it
in time, that these terrible, outrageous
frauds on the part of the, Democracy
shall be previaited. If we need further
legislation to effectually prevent it, let
our Legislature give it to us this win
ter ; and let it be of such a kind and
character as will conform to the' views
of our_ Supreme Court, and then all
will be well.
The Elections and the Lesion
The late elections are not without a
lesson to the intelligent and thinking
person, to whatever party be may be
long. To all the party issues the Dem
ocrats have made in the late campaign,
- Such as the Public Debt, Taxation of
Government Bonds, Restoration of tfe
Southern States, & c., the people le
never-failing test of right, and th tri,
bunal to which all parties must submit
their actions and appea' for success,
have spoken, and in such emphatic
terms that no one, not - even the tough
est of. the, tinterrified, need. mistake.
In this wholesale - iiibpko of the
the- entire falsity and "fallacy of
Democratic Principles npilit be apparent
to every honest, and intelligent_ voter
in their rank's. It plainly teaches that
the people of this country, who, have
fought the rebels., on rummy battle-fields
and in legiSlative halls, are not in sym

their occupation gone, may be better
employed in counting the • national
gains by the late election. Ae, how
ever, the computation may not bequite
to the taste of those_ who have persist
ently tried to - depreciate the national
credit, we cannot expect them to take
up thdcalculatioa. The loyal Repub
licans, who rejoice in the result which
establiShes the Union of the States
and the prosperity of• that Union, will
find the work much more to their taste.
We will not undertake to be exact
in the computation ; nor indeed could
we attempt figures without the dahger
of being called visionary by doubters
and weeping philosophers. We notice
that these latter, some of whom claim
to be Republicans, are already at their,
Cassandra-like employment. ;, ,Granted
the victory of Grant, they are still
doleful over possible direct or indirect
"repudiation." This kind of borrow
ing trouble is the merest
The Republicanplatform is distinct
enough , upon the subject. And even
if there were no such positive decla
ration as was embodied in the declara
tion of principles just indorsed, by the
people, the course of events is remov
ing not only the possibility but the
thought of defalcation.
The Republican Ad:Ministration has
reduced the price of gold from two dol•
lars fifty down to about one dollar
thirty-four. But for the disloyalty of
the Northern allies of the South; the
premium never would have reached the
extravagant figure at which it was
once quoted, If there had been -no
enemies to peace and-union in our midst
the greenback currency would luive
reached the par of specie ~before this
time. A factious acting. Pregident; and
-an-unscrupulous party in sympathy
with him and in league with the other
k pponents of pence and reconciliation,
have been able to delay the adjustment
of values .ind the return to a metal
basic for the currency, of the country.
Reckless gamblels and speculators'
have added to the confusion for their
own selfish purposes, and all, values
have thus been kept tmsettled. There
has, nevertheless, been suclLan abiding
faith, in the great heart of the people,
in the strength of the country, political

The. General of the Armies.
There has been considerable discus
sion in the newspapers in regard to the
effect of the resignation of Geu. Grant
of his position as General. It has been
said that the office will expire with the
acceptance of the General's resignation,
and that the highest rank in the army
will then be that of Lieut. Generah in
which grade'Gen.Shermati has no peer;'
and that it will be within the dime
tiori of Cougressto deterniine Whether
be shall be promoted to the still higher
grade; which would require a special
law, as in the, case of Gen. grant. But
the Washiniton correspondent .of the
New York Tribune" says not
tile case, and that " the law, making
Gem Grant General of the armies, re
vived the old law providing for the
grade of General of the Army, and
left it in the discretion of the PreSidont .
of the United States io appoint or not
to appoint an officer, to that posi thin.
The resignation of Gen. Grant 'would
merely make a vacancy, which could
be 'filled by another appointment,. if
the executive should deem it neces
sary or proper that the- grade :should
be continued. The law does not con
template succession' ms a matter of
course." If is not probable that Geri.

From tho (Pottsville) Minor's Journal
The honored Chief Executive of thig

in the history of the. Republic. - And
it is a source of great gratification'. to
the people of this State that his I ser
vices as Governor have been in a great
measure as valuable. His course on
all matters affecting • the welfare and
prosperity of the State, An& the bap,

•by conscientious motives; and while
he has firmly opposed evils he hat. had

Possible that any other candidate• will
be presented to the 'Republican party.
His brilliant 'War record is the first,
though not the most important element
of his popularity.- What the people of
Pennsylvania think of his, services in
the army was clearly shown in the
election of 1-866, when he carried the
state by. a majority 0f17,000. But - a
better reason why he should serve a
second term is the ability and dignity
of his administration, which. has been
characterized by energy and wisdom.
General Geary, in the late canvass,
was also active arid infiuential,"rind his.
.speeches and labors had an'important
-effect upon the result in October and

he is the warm personal friend of Gen.

him during his Administration. These

LOCAL HISTOIiII3B.--It hue been
suggested by some one that 'every commu
nity should have its "Town History," in
which the local ovonts of their borough or
county may bo recorded. The suggestion
is rimost excellent one, and Should be acted
upon everywhere. - The divine injunction
to "gather up the , fragruents that nothing

events of the day, which are scarcely no

the character of any community is, in no
small degree, •the reflex of the founders of
that community, in order to Understand
the philosophy of history, it is important
to know the condition of the first settlers,
the circumstances - with *hich they were
surrounded, and the causes which led to
their settlement. Their manners and cus
toms- will be seen in a measure in the' in
stitutions of those who follow them, and
_hence it 'is essential to make ourselves min-
utely acquainted with overything connect
ed with our ancestors. The preparation
of local 'sketches of the villages and towns
would be an easy task, and from these the
recordi of the county arid .the State could
afterwards be compiled with small cost or
By all moans Carlisle should have n'
complete and accurate local history. It is
an old town, and many stirring events have
transpired hero. During Colonial times it
.was an important frontier military pest,
from- which expeditions were sent out to
keep the Indians. in check, and watch the
movements of the French. In our strug—
gle for freedom, Carlisle was well repre
sented in the patriot army, and it was
here where a portion of the British.prison
ere were kept. In the " late onplea‘cint
nese," our Southern friends visited us upon
two occasions, the first detachmerit to levy
black mail, and the second to burh and
bombard. Yes; Carlisle is a historic town,
