It \ van freely need aa an electioneering de- u vice, and was contemptuously abandoned * at toon at the election was aver. j President Grant seems to have no fixed > rale of action. He doea whatever those j who control his administration dictate, i He has no intelligent appreciation of the J situation of things himself, so as to stand j alone and be self-poiaed and consistent in J hit course. He is, aa between his own , political adherents, one thing today, and ! another to-morrow. He is consequently losing the respect of many of his friends, and his administration ia in danger of col lapse. As soon as he has no more patron age to bestow, be will find a very altered •talc of things. Men who have been moat obsequious towards him will treat him with marked indifference, and from having been a very important personage, he will sink into that insignificance from which he emerged daring the war. As to a third term, no President ever yet aspired to it. To undertake it daw, would produce revo lution So far from the country being prepared to submit to an innovation of that sort, public opinion, we think, is rap idly tending to a determination to restrict the Presidency to one term. Th* Cut tor Vrsorascr.—The Mo doe aaseminalions have caused a profound sensation all through the country, and a general order of extermination has been issued from the War Department. The offense, it ia true, is one of the gravest character, and ought to be adequately punished, but if the order of the Govern ment to exterminate this tribe, should be earned out by onr troops on the frontier, is there not danger that the innocent may suffer with the guilty ? If the guilty Cap tain Jack and hia fellow assassins could be captured and hung like other murderers, the effect would be salutary and mote con ducive to peace and the ends of justice than the extermination of the entire tribe. It is scarcely probable that the whole tribe, men, women and children, deserve death. If possible, innocent blood tbottld not be shed. ________ We have read with pleasure the pro ceedings of the Union Bridge Formers' Club, which will be found in the local de partment of this issue. Justly jealous of the honor of being the first club ever formed in Carroll, and claiming an exis tence of over hxlf a century, they advise onr friends at Finksburg to rename their club, which they have called the Alpha. If the members of the Alpha feel like following this advice, we suggest that it be done formally, at a social reunion of all the clubs,—the Union Bridge, the Alpha, and the Carroll, —to be held in Westmin ster. No doubt they would infuse into each other renewed life and vigor. The Baltimore papers, of Wednesday, publish, from the Indiana State Sentinel, a letter from Gov. Hendricks, of Indiana, written to, and published in, the Advo- CATI, of Saturday last. These lynx-eyed Baltimoreans are not short-sighted, but the reverse. They can see things which are far off, but cannot see the things which are under their very eyes, else they would have seen the letter of Gov. Hendricks in , the Aovocatr, five days before they dis covered it in the Indiana paper. Who will agy that these vigilant Baltimore jour nals are not up with the times ? Oim. Grant and thr Next Presi dency.—The New York Sen notices, to condemn, “the foolish talk” of a politician or an editor, here and there about running Grant fur a third term. Such a thing, the Sim thinks, it now out of the question. For that matter, indeed, the prediction ia made that— Before the close of the second session of that Congress it will become apparent to ovary sagacious politician that there ia far more likelihood that Grant will be impeached by the House in the Forty-fourth Congress than that be wilt be nominated for a re-elec tion. When Grant falls everybody will be amazed that he stood so long. The details of the bloody conflict in Louisiana between the Republican factions which dispute supremacy in that State, an the md results of the President's in terference with the affairs of that unhappy people. But for that interference, the Pinchbach pretenders would not have been •hie thus long to withstand public senti ment and superior numbers, and to defy the right. Hendri ks th* Coriro Man —The Ohio Liberal says The man destined to heat General Grant, or whoever else may he the Republican candidate for president In 1876, will in all probability be of Democratic antecedents, and at present the coming nun would seem to be Governor Hendricks of Indiana. The election for corporation officers of Hagerstown took place on Monday. Four Democrats and one Republican were elect ed.

The mother end older i children were at work in the garden, and kept i Jesse by them ; bat he saying it was now sum t mer, took off his boots, socks and bat, play- i ing around bore headed and bare foot in high i glee, and to know his whereabouts he had 1 frequently to be called, until about 2.3Uo'clk. 1 P.

Frederick i Hearing's mill, on the road leading toward i the spot where hia father had been in the habit of setting his net, to which place he frequency J followed his father. A few minutes later the i mother called him, but receiving no answer, i search was immediately made fbr him. The ] citisena of Bruceville and adjoining neighbors joined in the search, which was continued till ! the darkness of nignt and the setting of the moon made it impossible to proceed any fur ther. On Saturday the search was re sumed at early dawn, and continued all day, and all day on Sunday. At the close of preaching, on Sunday night, the Hev. Mr. Saylor announced the sad circumstance to the congregation, inviting all to join in the search which waa so vigorously prosecuted. Big Pipe Creek was raked with hooks and rakes for a distance of over two miles, from twelve to fifteen men walking abreast with hooks and rakes, others, on horses, going down into deep places, raking to the bottom, while some drew the fater out of Mr. Meanng'smill race to a few inches in depth, and others ranging over the surrounding fields, but up to this writing, all in vain. The theory ot some is, that the child was kidnapped.

All those farmers who seeded wheat in the first-half of September have aa fine a prospect for a crop as 1 ever saw before; late seeding is short, though it seems to stand well. Osa.—lt is to be regretted, by every friend . of improvement, that the Secretary and Tteas • urer of the Westminster Gas Company has ' been compelled to make the statement be did . in last week’s Sentinel. Those of our active, t enterprising business men who started the Gas ' Company have met with very little encourage . ment. There are a few friends of the enter prise left, and we are assured that they will ' stand by the company to the last. It is a * crying shame that the capital of a county as * populous and wealthy as Carroll cannot af ford to have its streets lighted by gas ; and eaually so is it sppticsble to its own citizens, who prefer to endanger their lives and prop ■ erty by the use of that extremely dangerous * light, coal oil. It is almost a daily announce ment that some unfortunate person has been ■ burned to deathly the explosion of coal oil p lamps. That Westminster has, fortunately, been almost entirely exempt from accidents of ’ this nature, is true, but what guarantee have . we that it will continue so ? W hen is taken into consideration the fact of its cleanliness, ‘ freedom from smoke and bad odors, the great r saving of time and its convenience, this alone should recommend its consumption by all. That the gas furnished by our company ia equal to any made, none will attempt to gain t say. The company must not go down, but ' ought to be sustained liberally. Indeed we 1 have heard several gentlemen say that they would pay. double the price rather than be ’ without it. Let all who are in favor of the - advancement of Westminster, stand by the } gas company and every other improvement which has been introduced. Carroll County Teachers’ Institute.— , The Institute assembled in the Court room. Westminster, on Wednesday last, and con ’ tinued its sessions throughout Thursday. , Professor M. A. Newell, President of the State Normal School, presiding, assisted by Prof. J. M. Fewson, County Examiner. Wm. i Reese, Esq., the efficient President of the , Board of School Commissioners, was also present, and several visiting gentlemen. The * weather was inclement on the first and second . days of the session, and the attendance of ' Teachers was consequently small. The in -1 terest, manifested, however, in the coarse of j the proceedings, was by no means gaged by the limited attendance. On the contrary, the * different subjects whqdi occupied the stten t tion of the Institute wire freefy snd spiritedly discussed, and the relative duties of teachers, pupils, parents, trustees and commissioners, thoroughly examined into ans more fully un derstood. The teachers reported the condi tion of their schools; the average attendance - of pnpils; the interest shown by trustees; the > mode and measure of discipline; and other matters tending to advance the cause of edu -1 cation in this county. We have no doubt thst l these Institute msetings will have a most ' salutary effect The Institute adjourned sine 0 die on Thursday afternoon, in consequence of . the inclement weather.

There is r now no doubt about tbe peach crop being a perfect failure in this immediate locality, the buds on tbe trees baring dried up, numbers , of them haring already fallen, and not a sign 1 of a blossom appears, but in more derated - positions plenty of blossoms are opening. The AurocsTC comes regnlarly to band, a welcome riaitor here. Send it along, sad we ’ we will try to pay the extra 20 cents; and if . it be any gratification to tbe sages of odious legislation, let them enjoy tbe benefit.

M. G. 8. Haines, President. David Rinehakt, Secretary. A paper read 6y Mr. Solomon Shepherd, be fore the Union Bridge Agricultural Club , April iff A, 1873. As the farmers of our country are being aroused from their lethargy, and seem to evince some disposition to see to their inter ests themselves, instead of leaving it to poli ticians and speculators, who have heretofore lived on the earnings of the hard-fisted veo mon, I thought perhaps a short history* of the efforts msde by the farmers of this county to throw the galling yoke from their necks might be interesting to the members of our Club. The first Farmers' Club of which 1 have any knowledge, was formed in 1817, in the vicinity of Union Bridge, then Frederick county, now Carroll county, Md., by Thomas Shepherd, Daniel Hain s. Ulrich Switzer, Samuel Haines. David Englar. Philip Englar, Henry Rial ana Israel Rinehart, (wtasc son Israel C. Rinehart is still a member of the organization). It was an organization of pro ducers for their mutual benefit and protection against the middlemen, who were at that early day, leech-like, living on the blood of the farmers. The plan of the Club, or, as it was more generally styled, “The Company," was to produce a No. 1 article and deliver it di recUy to the consumer. They made “gilt edged" butter, and got fancy prices for it. A person who did not make a good article could not be a member of tbe Club, and they es tablished such a character that a consumer was sure to get good batter if he purchased 1 of the “company wagon.” The Club owned a wagon, harness, Ac., which conveyed the produce to Baltimore market every week. The members took turns in going: the one going with the wagon fur nished the horse his week, and acted as sgent for the company in selling their produce and buying goods for them. At their annual meetings they settled their financial business, and had no commissions or profits to hand 1 over to go-betweens. The Club is still in existence, sending pro duce to Baltimore every week, and the mem bers ore now getting more for their batter . than any other farmers in this part of the ' county. Here is a Fanners' Club that has been or -1 ganized and working prosperously and har moniously for more than halfa century before 1 “The Alpha Farmers’ Chib” was created. I would respectfully suggest to the gentlemen that they rename their bantling. 1 There was a second, or Junior Clnb, started in or about 1863, similar to the old one of 1 1817. h has been in successful operation ■ ever since. ' In 1864 there was an association organized ! at Union Bridge, under tbe name and title of ■ “The Union Bridge Agricultural and Scien ! lific Club.” The first permanent officers were [ elected Feb. 2Uth, 1864, vis: President, G. S. Haines; Recording Secretary. Joshua Switzer; Treasurer, Daniel Wolf; Librarian, ' Thomas W. Russell; Executive Committee, Warrington Gillingham, Solomon Shepherd ■ and Pemberton Wood. The meetings were ■ held on the first and third Saturday of every ‘ month, at 7 o'clock, P. M. In 1868 there r were other features added to the old mode of ■ doing business. The Clnb now meets at a - member's house every month, and half the > membership are ladies. The farmer’s wife * (no man should be a farmer without he has a * wife, is as much a member of the Club os he ‘ himself, with the same rights and privileges. The Club, when they meet, usually first ex ■ amine the farm, buildings, fencing, work, Ac. f criticising and answering questions; when - they return to the house ana organize, essays ore read and questions discussed, after which f they repair to the table bountifully supplied * with tbe products of the farm, nicely prepared i to sustain the physical mao. Tbe company having partaken of the good things before ' them, select the subject for the next meeting, 9 and adjourn to meet again next month, at the e house of some other member. The plan of r holding circular meetings has been adopted by all the wide awake neighborhoods in the 1 country. It is the plan, and Clubs on this 1 system should be organised all over “Uncle * Bam'• , ’ big farm. t, , Proceedings of the County Commission ers.—April 14th , 187 S—Commissioners met, 1 present J.

IWOK AMD MANCHESTER A correspondent furnuhe* the following in ternal! ng letter in relation to this road: - The Parklon ami Manchester Railroad *x* I lends from Parkton, N.C. R. R.,10 Munches ter. Carroll county, and m chartered bj the / Legislature of Maryland is 1868, The autvey 1 was immediately thereafter made ami the line located, and in the whiter of 186 D-70 the work of grading was commenced and oontin aed until one year ago, when, through bad management and for the want of fund*, the Company were forced to ceaae their opera- % lions, and the work has been idle ever since, 1 Up to this time some #OO,OOO have been ex- * pended on the road, and about two-thirds of ] the grading finished. The original charter of th'm road authorised the Company to extend their road beyond the 1 town of Manchester for five miles, which < would hare carried the road to the vi- i cmitj of Rothman's Mills, a region vert rich ( in mineral ores. By an ac: of the Legislature, approved March % 1870, the charter was so amended, however, as to authorise the Com I pany to construct fend maintain its road to any point on the Western Maryland Railroad, or the line of the railway running from Frederick city to Littlestown, Pa. The Tine of this road, at laid out, runs through a section of country rich in agricultural and mineral resources. Beginning at Parkton, it passes in its line the village ofPayviiie; thence near Mr. T. En- ! sor’s paper mill, on the Great Gunpowder, and strikes George's Hun at Mr. Shamoerger's large grist mill; from this point it passes on about two and a-half miles to Beckleysville, 1 and through the property of Mr. Daniel Beck ley, who owns and operates an extensive pa per mill at this point. About three miles further on it passes the extensive woolen fac tory and paper mill of Mr. George H. Hare, ana from there on to the town of Manchester. The entire length of the road, as already laid out and surveyed, is thirteen and three-quar ter miles, in almost a straight line. By an act of the Legislature, approved Apnl ■i, 1870, the town was authorised and empowered to subscribe to the capital stock of this company the sum of SIO,OOO, and in the discretion of the Mayor and Common Council of the town, anv further sum, if not exceeding $20,000, and in case a less sum than $20,000 mar be subscribed to said cap ital stock, the Mayor and Common Council are authorised-to endorse the bonds of the Company to any amount which, with the amount subscribed, shall not exceed in the aggregate the sum of $20,000. By the same act the corporation of Manchester is also au thorized to issue bonds for such amounts as may be required to pay the amounts which may be subscribed to the capital stock of said railroad. And the question of subscription or no subscription is In be submitted to a vote of the legal voters of the town, before such a subscription can be made. The stockholders of this road, mostly resi dents along its line, are naturally amicus that , their road should be completed, and to effect , this purpose many of the original holders of , the stock have already expressed a willingness to double their subscriptions; and it is under , stood that the question of a subscription to , the stock of the Company by the town of Manchester, under the authority of the act i above quoted, in order to consummate com- S| Hletion of the road, is now being agitated I Bere.

' Oen Oanby Assassinated One Peace Commissioner Killed and another Wounded General Canby and Rev. Dr. Thomas were murdered by Captain Jaek and other Modoc leaders, on Thursday, the 10th inst. while holding a peace conference near the Lara Beds, in Southern Oregon. Mr. Meacham. another peace commissioner, was wounded, and is nut expected to re cover. All thoughts of peace are now at an end. and military measures have been taken for the punishment of the treacher ous savages. The tragedy has caused great excitement along the Pacific coast. FULL PARTICULARS. Lava Bed Camp, April 11. Yesterday afternoon five Indians and four squaws came into our tamp and were made presenta of clothing and provisions by the peace commissioner*, and a message was sent out by the commissioners ask ings talk thin morning at a point alaml a mile from our picket Hue. Later in the evening, Hugos Charley came in and told the picket that he could take his gun, that he Charley) did not intend to go back any more. The picket brought him in and took him to the lent of General Canby where Charley loft hia gun. and remained at the tent of Frank Riddle during the night This morning Boston Charley came in and told the commission that Captain Jack and five other Indians would meet the eouimiaakm outside their lines. Boston Chsrley and Bogus Charley then mounted a horse and started fur the Lava bed, but about an hour after their depar ture General Canby, Dr Thomas, Mr. A. B. Meacham and Mr. Dyer, with Frank Riddle, bis and squaw four interpreters, started fur the place appointed. The (ar ty arrived at the appointed place and were closely watched by signal officer, Lieuten ant Adams, from a signal station on a hill overlooking our camp. About half au hour after the party had arrived a cry from the signal station was raised, saying that the Indians had attacked the peace commission and that an engagement had commenced between the Indians and Col. Mason. In a moment the troops were under anus and deployed as skirmisher*, under Col. Green, and orders were given to forward double quick. Very shortly afterwards, Mr. Dyer re turned and told us that the Indians had attacked them, and that he was the only one who had caeaped. but in a few mo ments after, Riddle and his squaw were seen within the picket line. From them we gather the following account of how the massacre commenced : Mr. Meacham made a abort speech to the Indians, fol lowed by General Canby and Dr. Thomas, and then Captain Jack made a speech, asking for Hot Creek and Cottonwood Kces. now occupied by Fairchild and vis, for a reservation. Mr. Meacham told Captain Jack that it was not possible to give him what he asked. Scliuueliiu told Mr. Meacham to say no more, that he Meacham) had said enough on that sub ject, and while Schonchin was speaking. Captain Jack got up and walked behind the others, turned back and exclaimed, “all ready." He then drew his pistol and snapped a cap at General Canby, then again cocked his pistol and fired. General Canby falling dead, shot under the eye. Schonchin then shot Meacham in the shoulder and head, but he is still alive. Boston Charley, and another Indian, shot and killed Dr. Thomas. Hooker Jim . chased Dyer some distance, but Dyer ■ turned on him with a pistol in hand ami Jim ran. An Indian knocked Kiddle's squaw off her hone and took it. but Cupt r lain Jack made him return it, and then another Indian chased Riddle and shut at him. Some allowances may be made for 1 the truth of this last statement. The | troops sre now about a mile in the lava beds, lying on their arms, and will probu -1 bly advance to-night under cover of the darkness. There arc about six hundred soldiers that can be brought into active service, and it is believed that they will , end the Modoc war. Mr. Meacham is not expected to survive. \ TROOPS PREPARING FOR ACTION. A Lava Bed special of the 12th says:— , The troops will move into camp to-morrow .Sunday) about twelve hundred yard# from Captain Jack’s cave, and active op erations will commence immediately. The } Warm Spring Indians, under Donald Me ’ Kay, were expected at Colonel Mason’s , camp on Sunday. The remains of Gencr ; al Canby and Dr. Thomas left on the 12th far San Francisco. ’ r As s matter of interest to those who have friends in the army, we publish the following notes concerning the troops now i in motion against the Modoc murderers of - Gen. Canby and Dr. Thomas;—The troops ’ Lave heretofore been encamped in two I detachments. The whole force numbers r shout seven hundred men, and is now un der the command of General Alvan C. Gillem. Major E. Thomas, at last ac . counts, was on his way to General Gillem’s 1 camp, with a number of mortars, to be ' used in throwing shells into the hiding , places of the Muduca among the “Lava . Beds." 1 General Jeff. C. Davis has been dircet * ed by General Sherman to proceed to the ’ Pacific Coast and assume the command made vacant by the death of General Canby. APACHE OUTRAGES. San Francisco dispatches report that on i March lltb, Ous. Swain, John McDonald and George Taylor were murdered by a large band of Apaches. The savages were overtaken by troops, under command of r Lieutenant Rice, and in the conflict which followed 79 warrior* were killed, and 26 1 women and children captured. Taylor. - one of the murdered men, was subjected to most brutal torture. Another force of troops under command of Captain Randall has killed 47 Apaches, and raptured 7 i squaws. > ’ A Horrible Crimt Savage Revenge. Mr*pins April 16,—The Augusta, ) Arkansas, Bulletin publishes a letter from j Unieo county, Arkansas, giving an account. . of a horrible outrage upon, and murder of I a white woman by allegro in that county, s A few weeks ago a married woman went t to a neighbor s house to remain several > days, but found no one at home, and started to return, when a negro stopped her hone, took her off and drove, pushed . and palled her eight miles into the bottom i lands, where he tied her to a tree and . ravished her, keeping her there for three i <Uya.

It appears that alter the election two acts ot othecre were appointed, one by Dinchback and the other by the McEncry govern ment. The parish is conceded to be white. These appointments led to a disagree meut, and u few day* ago a delegation, headed by Mr. Rutland on the fusion side and Ward on the other, visited Governor Kellog. High words ensued between the contestants. Rutland saying thut they had the offices and were determined to keep them, and Ward rejoining, in effect, that there would be no trouble about the colored men seating themselves when once they made up their minds. Both left for home, and, as before stated. Ward opened the ball on Wednesday. Alter haring secured posse—ion, Rutland’s house attacked, sacked, nd himselt and family driven from tho parish. Ward is described a a negro of a most insolent manner, and, if report is to be credited, he has been the ringleader in several distur bances. FURTHER PARTICULARS. New Orleans, April 15.—The steam boat Sou ill western, which arrived about 1.2 U this afternoon, brings stirring and i important nows from Grant parish. The whites have retaken Coital from the ne ' groes who took possession of the town some days ago, and there is nut a negro to be j I found for miles around. From u pasfleu- { i gcr on the Southwestern we glean the fol ’ lowing: The negroes had strongly en ; trenched themselves in the court-house. ‘ and built breastworks three and four feet I high. There were, it is said, about 400 men armed and equipped thoroughly. • On Sunday, about I o’clock, about 150 • men, who hud gathered from the surround > ing parishes, made an attack on the breast works and u brisk fight was kept up until ■ somewhere near 3 o’clock. The breaat l works were then stormed and captured, the • negroes taking refuge in the court-house, the doors of which were barricaded. After ' b some further fighting the negroes threw ] i out u flag of truce, and several detachments | r of men advanced on it, when they were i fired on by the besieged party, wounding ' several, of whom was Cpt. Iladnot, who l , was shot in the bowels and it is feared i , fatally wounded. They retreated on the I outside of the breastworks, and as tin* 1 only means of dislodging the negroes the • court-house was set on tire; and they were b shot as they came from the burning buiid- ing. It is reported that between eighty l* and one hundred negroes were killed, and - there were none to Ik* found for miles . around. 1 The captain of the steamlKKit ISouth ■ western makes the following statement: I "We arrived at Colfax Sunday evening > about K o’clock Found that the white 1 people and sheriff. I suppose at their head, i- - had captured the town after having acon e I flict with the negroes. It was reported to , me that about 1 tMI negroes had been killed I many others wounded. Wo saw from the a boat fifteen or twenty lying around on the r bank dead. One white man was reported 1 | killed, whose name I did nnt learn, and s two very seriously wounded. Messrs. Had - i not and Harris. Mr. Iladnot was shot u I through the bowels and supposed to be i mortally wounded. We brought Harris r j and Iladnot down from Colfax to Alexan e dria. Three or four other while men were a slightly wounded. About 100 negroes - escaped, but it was reported the whites e were still pursuing them. All of the lead l ere of the riot escaped, es|>ecially the white e men. I “The negroes having ambuscaded them- selves in the court-house, and the whites, finding there was no other mode of attack left them, set fire to the building. The _ whites numbered in the neighborhood of r j 150 men. The fight lasted from 12 o’clock 8 until nearly 5 IV M. The whites are now in possession of Colfax, and when I left. p last Sunday night, everything was very .. quiet.” s ■ • Biot Between Strikers and Negroe*. Indianapolis, April 15 A serious 0 riot is in progress at Knightstown, Indi i? between the striker), at the coal v mines and furnaces, and the colored mi f ner* lately imported from Virginia. The s whole town is apparently now engaged in it general melee, originating with a negro m *nd a striker, which soon spread. The i- negroes are now at their boarding-house, !. well armed and well guarded by local po i. lce. A crowd is surrounding it, throwing s *tones and other missiles. A company of e | colored miners from Braiil and vicinity I, came to aid the negroes, and many shots n were fired during the melee. Governor Hendricks has been appealed to for troops. . and it is expected that the Emmet Guards e I and a body of police from this city will 1 i leave for Knightstown at 2 A. M., undar - rive there about SA.M. The indications are that there will be bloody work before the troop* arrive. i Latent. A despatch from Kingstown, . Indiana, April Hi. says —A riot has been in progress at the blast furnace of the Western Iron Company, in this place, ' since four o clock last evening, between negro laborers from Virginia, and white ’ miners and puddlere who are on the strike. : Three of the guard detailed from the po lice of the town were cruelly beaten. Rev. Mr. .Matthews, who appeared on the scene. - and endeavored to secure peace, was set i upon by the mob and struck in the head by a large cinder, which cut a severe gash, hut did not seriously injure him. Two of ■ the guard. John Derby and George Murh i agan, were badly bruised about the face n *nd body by the women, who took the t lead in the affray and urged the riot on. f - Th ?.
