January 15, 1862

In New Quarter. - Our Court is now in session in the new court house, which is in such state of completion as to afford every accommodation, not only for the court, but for all the county offices.  The structure is not less imposing in appearance than it is comfortable and convenient in the accommodation furnished to all parties interested.  It has cost a large sum of money - made so by the misfortunes of the country since it was projected - yet we doubt if there is a single tax payer of the county, who has had an opportunity of comparing the present condition of the public business with what it was formerly, will regret the additional expenses.  This court house together with its internal arrangements, is much superior to any of those in the surrounding counties, and is inferior to but few in the State.  Even Philadelphia would be proud of such accommodations for her courts.

The new Methodist Church, at Curwensville, will be Dedicated on Sunday the 26th instant.  Jackson Robinson, Jno. D. Thompson, J. R. Reed, Dan'l Livingston and H. P. Thompson, Building Committee.

A Man Trap. - We have been requested to warn the public of the dangerous condition of the bridge across Clearfield creek two miles east of this place.  Last spring the main structure was carried away by the high water.  It was then temporarily repaired, but not with the expectation that heavily laden teams would attempt to cross it.  The danger was not regarded, however, and so far no accident has happened.  We are told that the stone work of the pier has given way - to what extent cannot be known when the water is high, as at present.  That it is really dangerous; we have not a doubt, and feel that it is a duty we owe to the public to apprise them of the fact.

Caution. - I hereby caution all persons from harboring or trusting my wife Hannah Jane on my account, as she has left my bed and board without just cause or provocation, and I am determined not to pay any debts of her contracting after the date of the 10th of January, 1862.  Samuel E.

Died at his residence adjoining this borough on Monday last, at twenty minutes past 1 o'clock, p.m. William Merrell, Esq., in the 56th year of his age.
The deceased was one of our most respectable citizens, and the sad announcement of his sudden death will startle his many friends thro'-out the county.  Having lived here for more than a quarter of a century, he has been suddenly, and perhaps (in consideration of his example) prematurely called to his reward.  A mild and unobtrusive man, he paraded not his virtues before the public; but every act of his life was a fit exponent of his virtue.  As a public functionary, (having been elected County Commissioner in 1859,) he discharged his duties with that exactness and that impartiality which should ever characterize the man to whom the people have confided an important trust.  As a Christian, and a member of the Presbyterian Church - whose brethren, in consideration of his piety, had made, him an Elder - he enjoyed their most unlimited confidence, and when approaching the Dark Valley, he was cheered by that Light which the living in life hope for, and the dying in death so joyfully realize. Stricken down in the midst of his usefulness - called away from loved ones - it is another illustration of the painful though beautiful truth, that, "Leaves have their time to fall, And flowers to wither by the north wind's breath; But thou! Thou hast all seasons for thine own, O, Death!"

Died on the 14th instant, of Consumption, at the residence of her father near Curwensville, Jane D. Cleaver, aged 26 years 8 months and 8 days.  She was a member of the Society of Friends, called Orthodox.  She was a gentle and retiring disposition - an affectionate sister, and a loving and obedient daughter, she bore her protracted illness with much patience and resignation, after imparting words of comfort and consolation to those around her.  A few weeks before her Divine Master called her home, she was frequently engaged in prayer, frequently manifesting a desire to be released from this world of pain and sorrow; but she would immediately exclaim "His will, not mine, be done."  She exported her parents, brothers and sisters to prepare to meet her in that mansion she soon was to enter.  As she approached nearer home her way seemed to grow brighter, and she was enabled to clap her glad hands and praise him who had delivered her from her tribulations.  May our end be as hers - so full of peace and so resigned to his Holy Will.

April 2, 1862

Married on the 25th ult., by J. R. Caldwell, Esq., John W. High to Miss Harriet L. Hunter, both of Knox township, this county.

Died in Brady township on Sunday last, Mrs. Christina Miles, widow of the late Obediah Miles of Centre county, in the 80th year of her age.

We regret to learn that the elegant new residence of J. H. Gearhart, of Bradford township, was entirely consumed by fire on last Friday.

Found Dead in the Road. - We learn that an Inquest was held by Justice Wm. McKee of Knox township, on Sunday the 23d ult., on the dead body of a woman found on Potts Run road about one mile from Clearfield Creek.  When the neighbors collected, the body was identified as that of a Mrs. Haley, aged about 52 years, who had been on a visit to the residence of John M. Chase, whence she left, in apparent good health, some four or five hours previous to being found.  No marks of violence were visible.  The verdict of the Jury was, that the deceased came to her death by some disease unknown to them.

April 9, 1862

Died at his late residence in Woodward township, on Monday the 31st ult., William Alexander, sen., aged 80 years and 3 days.
The deceased was born in Kishakoquillas Valley, Mifflin county, and emigrated to Clearfield creek, where he has resided ever since.  He was the father of eight sons and five daughters - two of the former are deceased, and the others all now residents of the county, and all married but one.  He was among our most worthy citizens - a kind and hospitable neighbor - upright in all his intercourse with all men - and to the day of his death he was an ardent and devoted advocate of these sound political principles, which, had they not been departed from, our country would now be at peace, and our people prosperous.

Died in this place, on Wednesday last, at the residence of his Son-in-law, David Litz, Thomas Haney, aged about 79 years.

Died in Morris township, on Sunday the 6th inst., O. P. Wilder, Esq., aged about 38 years.

April 16, 1862

Drowned. - We learn from the Clinton Democrat that Ellis Askey of this county, was drowned in the schute opposite Lock Haven, on Monday the 7th inst.  It seems that in order to get his raft into the schute it was necessary to "snub" when the rebound of the cable jerked him into the water at the suck of the schute.  He manfully struggled against the angry breakers until he reached the "big break" near the lower end; after which he was not seen.  Two of his sons were on the raft and were horrified witnesses of the father's death-struggles.  The deceased was counted one of the best watermen on the river, and many are the wild adventures and hairbreadth escapes related to Ellis Askey.

April 23, 1862

Married on the 10th instant, by Amos Hile, Esq., Mr. Robert H. Owens to Miss Sarah June Moore, both of Ferguson township.

Married on the 3d inst., by Rev. S. Creighton, Mr. J. Gearhart and Miss Martha Rothrock, of Bradford township, Clearfield county.

Williams, now at Nashville, Tenn., writes, "I am sorry to say we lost by death, on the 15th of this month, two as fine men as we have in our company, by fever in the hospital in this city.  Charles Parks, a young man from Spruce Creek, a brave soldier and always ready for duty.  The other, Frances Schoening, a married man from Ansonville, Clearfield county, a fine and good soldier."

May 7, 1862

The Methodist Episcopal Church, at Centre, will be dedicated on Sunday, May 11th.

Drowned. - A young man, named Shaffer, was drowned in Little Moravian run, in Morris township near the Mushannon creek, on Friday the 25th ult.  He was in the act of riding a sawlog in a dam, near the mouth of the run, when the log turned, throwing him in, and, from the fact that a pole was reached to him by some boys who were there, and that he made no effort to ---- himself, it is supposed that in falling, his head struck the log, causing insensibility.

Married on Thursday the 1st instant, by Rev. T. D. Gotwalt, Dr. Jefferson Litz of Grahamton to Miss Sallie J. McEnally of this place.

Died at her residence in Fox township, Elk County, Mrs. Sarah A. Wheling, wife of John Wheling, aged 26 years.

May 14, 1862

The Working Men. - A speck of civil war made its appearance last week at Pottsville, Pa.  The miners, feeling the pressure of times - caused by the advanced price of everything they had to buy for the maintenance of themselves and families, without any increase of their pay, ceased operations because their employers refused to accede to their demands for higher wages.  Some twelve hundred are said to have thus united.  The consequence was that the pumping engines being stopped, may of the mines filled with water, and serious apprehensions were entertained that violence would be committed.  At all events the strong arm of the military was appealed to, and Governor Curtin sent up several military Companies from Philadelphia, but whether to compel these hard-working men to accept the terms offered, or a few rounds of cold lead, is not stated.  The result, however was, that the employers agreed to give the advance demanded, and at last accounts all was quiet.
    When we got our full quota of contrabands, under the Aboliton progamme, this affair at Pottsville will be an insignificant trifle compared to the "strikes" of the laboring portions of other branches of industry.
    The miners, as a class, are perhaps the hardest worked, poorest paid and fed, and the most profitable to their employers, of any other laboring class.  For the want of means, their families are half starved, and never know what it is to enjoy a luxury either to eat or wear, and yet the last Legislature deliberately refused to secure him in the wages of his hire against the villainy of his employer.

Fire. - We regret to learn that the dwelling house of Jacob Kuntz, jr., of Brady township, with all its contents, was consumed by fire one day last week.  The house was large, comfortable, and nearly new.

Turned Up Alive. - Some time since Mr. David Yohe, of  Pigeon Creek, Washington country, went to the battlefield of Fort Donelson and had disinterred (as he supposed) the body of his son, who had received a wound during the fight, of which he afterwards died and was buried.  The body was conveyed home and re-interred in the family burial ground, at Pigeon Creek all the family being satisfied of the deceased.  Last week Mr. Y. was astonished at receiving a letter from his son, whom he supposed dead and buried, stating that, after some weeks' treatment in the hospital, he had recovered, so far as to be able to rejoin his company, had expected to take part in the next battle.  The joy of the family can better be imagined than described.

Death of Judge Bonsall. - Judge Bonsall, late an associate Judge of this country, died at his residence in Brady township, on last Monday evening, aged unwards of 70 years.  He has been in declining health for some months, and the sad event of his death was not altogether unexpected.

The New Court House. - The new court house was the subject of the universal admiration of the hundreds of citizens of the county, as well as the strangers, who were in attendance at court last week and this week.  Its general appearance, and the beauty and convenience of its internal arrangements, meets with universal approbation.
    There is some difficulty in hearing distinctly - caused by a singular detonation of sound, making it very difficult for the Attorneys to speak.
    This difficulty may disappear, or be remedied by some simple operation which may be developed.

    Who knows but that the removal of its grating, cracked, kettic sound, from the tower, will also remove the difficulty in the court room.

Distressing Calamity.
To the Editors of the Clearfield Republican.
    On last Friday morning, Sept. 29th, Edward King, family and friends, left his residence, the Eagle Hotel, in Cherry Tree Borough, between the hours of 10 and 11 o'clock a.m., to convey to the tomb a beloved child, the funeral cortege had left the house but a few minutes, and was just out of sight of the building, when the house was discovered to be in flames - some of the inmates of the building barely escaping with their lives.  The house with all its contents excepting a Bureau, Stand, Settee, 7 Chairs, 4 pieces of Carpet, and a few cans of fruit, was swept away in a few minutes by the devouring flames, and left Mr. King's family destitute, excepting the clothing they had on.  Mr. King was just about finished the house, and had it well furnished for a public house; his loss is heavy.  William Langden, late of Philadelphia, had his family, a wife and three children, boarding at Mr. Kings , until he had a house finished that he was building, they also lost all they had.  Notwithstanding the exertions of the citizens, a stable of Mr. John Knecdler took fire and was burned with its contents.  Esquire Hughes and Joshua Davis' houses were on fire from the burning building, but were saved without damage.   Cherry Tree, Sept. 29, 1862.

The deceased was a member of the Cadets 5th Reg. P.R. C., and was wounded in the battle before Richmond, and fell into the hands of the enemy.  He was confined in Richmond 34 days, when he was exchanged.  He was nearly well of his wound, when he was seized with the above disease, and died very suddenly.  He was a brave soldier and good citizen of Goshen township.


    The annexed affidavit of Mr. Samuel H. Hindman, a worthy citizen of Beccaria township, in this county, exposes the most vile and desperate attempt to corrupt the purity of the election ever brought to light, we venture to say, in this or any other State; and which too clearly shows the base, reckless and unlawful means to which the leaders of the opposition are resorting, to defeat Mr. Wallace, the Democratic candidate for Senator.  We say the leaders, for we know that there are hundreds of the rank and file of the Republican party who will abhor such means, and who, we doubt not, will rebuke the authors of this vile scheme in the most effectual manner.
    Mr. Hindman is a man of character and responsibility, upon whose statements, without the sanction of an oath, the public can implicityly rely.  But we have heard of other corroborating facts and cirmustances.  In the township of Bell, a like attempt was made to corrupt the vote of Mr. James Fullmer, who repelled the offer.  Three other electors - citizens of Beccaria township - were also approached by this man Crissman, with his offers of place and money.  He usually proposed to hire men to work on the Railroad, at very high wages, but would state that unless Mr. Hall was elected to the Senate, the work could not go on, and of course men could not be employed, and the high wages could not be paid.  In the township of Jordan a similar attempt was made; and it is plainly demonstrated that Crissman was vile enough to boast that he had accomplished his work of corruption with a least one citizen of Clearfield county.  Even in this town he was seen handing over money.  We have no terms sufficiently significant to characterize this infamous attempt to corrupt the very fountain of political authority, and the very palladium of our liberties; nor will it be easy for its authors, prior to the election, to imagine the depth of the indignation, contempt and scorn with which the people will repel the attempted outrage upon their rights, dignity and peace.  We have supposed that the law of 1860, which imposes a fine of $500 and imprisonment for two years "upon any person corruptly influencing an election," would have been sufficient to restrain even a very bad man.  But this man Crissman seems to have proceeded as if he had the fear of neither God nor man, nor the law of 1860 before his eyes.
    Fellow citizens:  this is no ordinary affair and we ask you to read and reflect upon the inevitable consequences of such wicked practices, and, then deal with the case as your sense of honor, duty and patriotism may dictate and we shall be content.
    Samuel H. Hindman, millwright, of the township of Beccaria, Clearfield county, Pennsylvania, being duly sworn, saith, That he was, during the past week, engaged in repairing a saw-mill for Hon. John P. Hoyt, in Penn township, some four miles from Lumberville; that on Tuesday night, (7th inst.,) he was awakened at his boarding-house by one John Dickinson, who desired him to go along with him to Lumberville; that he accompanied him supposing the purpose was for social enjoyment; that when he arrived at Lumberville he there found one Thomas Crissman, an agent of the Pennsylvania railroad Company at Sandy Ridge; that the said Crissman had been an acquaintance of his previously; that a conversation occurred between them, the substance of which was as follows: Crissman said he could get me (Hindman) a situation in the Navy Yard at Philadelphia, worth from $2 ½ to $3 per day, if I would do him a favor, and he knew I could do it; he said if I would exercise influence in Beccaria township I could change some fourteen votes; that I could promise each of these men, if they would vote for Louis W. Hall for Senator, a lucrative position on the Rail Road, and could explain this to them; he also said that HE WAS ARRANGING IT THROUGH THE COUNTY SO AS TO HAVE A DEMOCRAT AT EACH POLL, who could exercise his influence, and would also slip the ticket of L. W. Hall for Senator into the hands of all Democrats who were not watching it; he also told me that he had seen one Mr.----, and had talk with him; that ----was from the county of Clearfield, and had seen him either at Sandy Ridge or Tyrone; that ----had told him that for the consideration of TWENTY-FIVE DOLLARS he could change FIFTEEN VOTES in his district, that there were half a dozen votes in the family he could control; he said either that he had paid him TEN dollars, or was to pay him TEN dollars in hand and the remainder after this was effected; he said he was then going to look for ---, he said he despised the man but wanted the votes.  I assented to Crissman's proposition, and we parted.  He also told me that he had effected an arrangement with two other men, whom he named - one of them in Beccaria township, the other in Jordan township and that they were all right.
Sworn and subscribed 11th Sept. 1862, before me, James Wrigley, Rec. of Deeds.         SAMUEL H. HINDMAN.
