, It strikes us that some of our Repub
lican contemporaries are " goin, it" a
little extravagantly on the merits of
Mr. Scott, our newly elected U. S. Sen
ator. We.think well of Mr. Scott, and
expect good things of him ; but he has
his position as a statesman yet to
achieve. He is comparatively art un
tried man,.and:we prefer to judge him
by his acts. Indeed, it is not in accor
dance with the spirit of the Republican
party to hitch your faith to men. The
Intelligence is so general in that party
that there can be no great leader whom
the party will follow, as a leader. The
principles of the party are what the
true members of the party " tie to ;"

WEDNESDAY, JAN. , 27, 1869.
We are obliged to Senator Cameron
for various current documents.
Also to Hon. S. F ;Wilacm;ll.' C., for
copies of the Daily Globe.
Also to .T.-13. Nyes,- Esq., for files - of
the Legislative Record.
Since the endorsement of the election
of Gov. Fenton to the U. S. Senate, by
the Elmira Advertiser, we conclude
that that paper is estopped from criticis
ing the action of the Legislature of this
State. John Scott is an honed man,
and in ability stands level with any
New York Senator.
We are not much edified by the re
marks of some of Mr. Scofield's friends
touching the •Senatorial contest. One
of them, while deploring .the failure to
elect a Northern Pennsylvania, forgets
that Mr. Grow had double the strength
of Mr. Scofield ; and it is to the friends
of Schofield and Moorhead that Mr.
Grow o4es his inability' to make the
!nomination. We trust / that the Legis
lature will never disgrace itself by vot
ing in caucus, even, for Mr. 4. K. Moor
head. Now pitch in.
A NOBLE RECORD
Thirteen yearsugo, nearly, the Re
publican party ; sprang , into existence
upon a question of principle. At that
time it required a faith equal to the re
moval of mountains, upon which to
found a belief in the possibility of suc
cess within the lifetime of any man
then living. The principle which was
made an issue between the parties at
that time, and which continues, it ,
some degree, to constitute a subject of
contest, undoubtedly lies at, the botton•
of successful government by the people ,
LI is no less than the Universality 0
The Republican party had n-1 parpos(
at that time, beyond the maintenatic,
of a policy whichliould restrict , Sla
very to its ten liriii ..s ts, and preserve the
territories e the Union unstained b 3
the outrage of truffle in men, women,
and children. Though accused of an
intention to abolish slavery where it
ealsted by virtue of local law, it is
doubted if even the most advanced lea
der of the party cherished any strch in -
tention, or dreamed that the move
ment then inaugurated could result in
the destruction of slavery, save by in
direction. If to confine Slavery to the
States where it existed involved its de
struction ; then the object of the Re
publican partyinvolved the destruction
of _slavery; and not otherwise.
But men • builded better -than they ,
knew. Just-then the thorough emas
culation tif the Democratic party by its
subservience to the slave-lords of the
South . , entirely unfitted it for resistance
to the ambitious and dangerous schemes
of the chiefs of the oligarchy. The
Whig party had cut its throat at Bal
timore by outraging the moral sense or
its masses ; and the country was in a
critical condition. The Whig parts
had not tht power which springs from
organization, and' could not oppose,
effectively, the plans of the South. At
this critical period in our history as a
nation the Republican party appeared
upon the scene, full of the vigor 'and
enterprise of youth, and representing
the higher instincts of the masses. It
was formidable from the beginning,
and . :; .was victor in hundreds of local
struggles with the Democratic party.
Although' it failed to elect Fiemont, in
its first national campaign, the prestige
Of that fight between a young and un
sophisticated party, and a party drunk
en with thirty years of victory, gave the
new party great strength. Its triumphs
were ehielly local up to 1860, it boie
down a divided and demoralized oppo
sition, and emerged from one o 1 the
fiercest campaigns on record with' fly
ing colors and the prestige of victory.
The history of its entrance upon the
,administration of the Government is
so well known to the Amerieffn 'people,
that it is not necessary to dilate upon
that topic in iri brief and general an ar
ticle as this' is intended to be. The
polls had barely closed, when the South
ern wing of the Democratic party prac
tically summoned the young party to
trial by battle. The leaders of- the
Northern wing of the Democracy,_ l‘y

lent their countenance to - the revolt.

As may be supposed, this was the test.
of patriotism, in which camp-followers
of parties, the jobbers, the thieves, and
that other class still more despicable—
the mere deniagogues of old organiza

Upward.of four millions of men, wom

justice which - imbued a great party,
freed from bondage, and guaranteed
equal opportunity in the struggle for
life. This alone, without further notion
would have given immortality to the
Republican party. But when the peo
ple endorsed this action by the re-elec
tion of Abraham Lincoln in 1884, by
such a majority as had never before
been - given to any man, the verdict of
the people seemed to be complete. As
a vindicationl of Lincoln's policy it :was
masterly and without, a parallel. Mit
that was in the - bent and • turmoil of
war; and th historian will rather pass
on to the election of Gen. Grant in 1888,
four years later, and three years after
the aurrendeti of the rebel chiefs, as the
crowning victory of Republicanism
over anarchy; and the test by which
the strength and endurance of the Re
'ublican party ,were made known to

A STRANGE CASE.—A murder trial
in England has recently illustrated, in
a very shocking manner, the liability
or juries to convict innocent men, even
of a capital. crime. In August' last, a
laborer named Cornish was found mur
dered in a field near the City of Wells,
in Somersetshire, his head beaten in
with a stone, and a man named Bis
grove kneeling beside him. The story
told by this' person on 'his arrest was,
that being drunk the night before, and
finding .Cornish asleep on the ground
he had gone to sleep by his side, andon
waking had, seen a tall man in the act
Of committing the murder. ' It was
ascertained that another laborer-named
Sweet; and his mistress, a worhan called
Drew; had been in company with both
Bisgrove and Cornish up to 'very near
the time of the murder. Both were ar
rested. The woman being called 'as a
witness for the Crown, testified that she
had quarreled with Sweet, 'had gone
with Bisgrove alone into the field and
left him there with the sleeping Corn
ish, and had then rejoined Sheet and
remained in his company nntil - both
were arrested. Her story was supposed
to be an invention for the purpose of
screening her paramour Sweet, and tile
jury evidently believed that the quarrel
had occurred bet Ween the two prisonfra
and the murdered man, and had been
promoted by jealousy. Sweet and Ills
grove were both found guilt* ,• but ;rib
sooner had they been remanded to jail
than Bisgrove made a confession entire
ly exoneratingSweet,and corroborating
the woman's story. The confession re;
veals one of the most extraordinarj
cases of murder without any'motive
that ever came to our knowledge. The
murderer had gone to sleep by his vio•
tim's side. " When I waked up," say
he, I was going atxay, but something
seemed to tell mel must murder thst
man, and then I want over the river
and found the stone and brought it over
on my head, and I threw it - down on
the man's head. * * * Whatever made
tneAo it I can't think. It was not for
money. I had no thought of money."
Now the conviction of Sweet on
charge of which he was entirely inno.
cent, cannot be,, classed with the mire
takes of circumstantial evidence, for it
does not appear that there was any cir
cumstantial evidence against him at all,
except the bare fact that he was it
company with the deceased a littb
while before the deed must have beet
committed. He seems to have been
convicted because the jury wanted ick
find a motive for the deed, and could
not find one without dragging him in.
They made up their theory of the mur
der, and not being able to act it out
with a single culprit, they had to 86-
cure a second one. Fortunately tbe
poor man's innocence is made clear l
fore the time has come to hang him.

HARPER'S NEW MONTHLY MAGAZINE.

This most popular Monthly in the world..—N. Y.
We must rofer in terms of eulogy to the high
tone and varied eicellences of Harper's Magazine
--a journal with a monthly circulation of about
tern,nitn reqs - cus Ate- bo be Matta
some of the choicest light and general reading of
the day. We speak of this workas an evidence
of the culture of the American People; and the
popularity it has acquired is merited. Bach
Number contains fully 144 pages of reading
matter, appropriately illustrated with good wood
cuts; and it combines in itself the racy 'monthly
and the more philosophical quarterly, blended
with the best features of the daily journal. It
has great power in the dissimination of a love of
pure ,literatnra.—Trubner's Guide to American
' , Literature, London.
We can account for its success only by the
simple fact' that it meets precisely the popular
taste, furnishing a variety of "pleasing and in
structive reading for all.—Zion's Herald, Boston.
"A Repository- of Fashion, Pleasure
A supplement containing numerous full-sized
patterns of useful articles accompanies the paper
every fortnight, and occasionally an elegant col
ored fashion plate.
Harper's Bazar contains 16 folio pages of the
size of Harper's Weekly, printed on superfine
calenderod paper, and is published weekly.
, critical Notices of tha
Harper's Bazar eontains, besides pictures, pat
terns, etc., a variety of matter of especial use
nma interest to the family; articles on health,
dress, and housekeeping in all its branches; its
editorial matter is specially adapted to the circle
it isr Intended to interest and instruct; and it has
besides, good stories and literary matter . pf merit.
It is not surprising that the journal. with such
features, has achieved in a short time an' immense
success; for something of its kind was desired in
thousands of families, and it, publishers have
filled the demand.—N. Evening Post.
Whether we consider its elaidis as based upon
the elegance and superiority of the paper, its
typographical apirearance, the taste and judg
ment displayed in the engravings, or she literary
"aontrihutions contained in its pages, we unhesi
tatingly pronounce it to be superior in each and
every particular to any other similar publication
here or abroad.—Phit'a Ligat intelligeneer.
