The American Standard, of tJnion-

ihe (to Democrats) haled pixt, the fol
lowing episode in tho nnti-war history
of Fayette Dcniwvacy :
The GeniiM of Lihnbj of the 1st No

an article, in winch it is said, "it Lin

It is apparent from this article, that
the Fayette counly rebel leaders, knew
of this arrangement that Pennsylvania
was to go with the South, and this
article was preparatory to the step.
The newspapers containing this article
were mailed here, to Mason and Hun
ter, Souators from Virginia, and no
doubt Jeff. Davis had seen them.
Shortly afrr this Mr. Senator
Willcy, then just returned from the
Ijccislaturc at Richmond, in n anonrli
iu Morgautowa stated, that while he
was speaking against . Secession and
urging tho unity of the Northern
States, ho .was 'answered by members
thrusting in his fiicc tho Geniux of

And so out went Virginia, Mr. Willcy
bxrely escaping with his life.
Those principles, at that timo open
ly avowed, are still nursed by Copper
heads everywhere. It is desirable
that it should bo crushed, mi ! not by
bayonds but by ballote ! . You will never

Williams, bears onr standard, and tho

stand shoulder to shoulder triih him

The Pittsburg Gcudtt remarks, the
Democrats find it convenient to have

filled with alarm at tho increase of

Dn. Blackbuus, notorious for his
attempt to infect Northern cities with
aiuall-pox and yellow fever, during
tho war, goes back to New Orleans by
President Johnson's permission. More
than likely, if "Zly Policy" Is success
ful, Blackburn will represent a district
ot Louisiana, or perhaps, the State in
tho Congress at Washington. Those
who favor such proceedings should
vote ior Sliarswood as tho party he
represcuts undoubtedly throw their
weight on that side of tho balance.

We are at nil times willing that the
majority should rule. Wo have said
ami say again that tho question rests
solely with the States and that Con
gress has never signified its intention
ot forcing it upon the people by word
or act. The Southern States brought
it upon themselves, if tho Northern
States sec fit to adopt it can any citizen
do more than vote fur or aiinst it ?
As a mcasuro of justice we aro in favor
of intelligent suffrage, but as one of
necessity tho time has not yet come,
neither will it, unless Democracy by
lis persistent treasonable efforts to de
stroy our States shall compel tho peo
ple to take it as it was accepted by the
South as a dfrn-vrc policy.
It is not strange that Copperheads,
now that tho North has conquered
rebellion, should seek to disguise their
infamous conduct during its progress,
by hypocritical acts and assertions.
This is in consonanco with tho insidi
ous spirit animates tho party.
There are unfortunately too many who
from mercenary, or other motives of
evil, were (bund at one time in the
Union army, now joined with so-called
Democracy, in its efforts to annul or
destroy the fruits of that victory,
which thoso whom they seemingly
fought with would perpetuate. Con
ferring emolument upon Soldiers is
mt in their creed as the most superfi
cial observer can testify. Their course
in this county is testimony sufficient,
Iserks, lork and tho Democratic
strongholds of the State confirm it.
On the other hand, in Allegheny,
Schuylkill, Dauphin, and other coun
ties, Republican soldiers havo been
elevated to tho highest political emi
nence, and to-day, soldiers hold near
all the high offices iu the gift of tho
Commonwealth. Our advice itiraiu to
the Union Soldier is, bo not deceived
by tho hollow pretensions of scheming
traitors. But plant your colors on the
tower that guards tho principles for
which vou fought and resolve to de
fend it by casting your ballots for the
Republican candidates iu October next.
The ceremony of tho dedication of
tho Antietam Cemetery was conducted
in the interests of Gov. Swann, and
the traitorous clement of Maryland.
Tho Union soldiers present felt that
their cause was humbled and instic-
tively resolved to put tho stamp of
condemnation npon the proceedings by
arrestinj; them with loud erica for
Gov. Geary, whose presence, by special
invitation,' with that of other loval
Governors, was ignored and themselves
treated with undisguised contempt.
The Pittsburgh Gazette, remarks that
"ho was hailed as ono as the reprc-
sentative.'of all of them, and of those
great constituencies by which they
were elevated above thoir fellows. The
wrath of the people against the! Presi
dent and his co-plotters, expressed in
thoso calfe upon Governor Geary, was
tho significant circumstance. Those
calls came from bosoms that felt a holy
ground was desecrated, no matter what
semblance ef respect was maintained ;
tliat the sacred causo for which the
honored dead, lying there, lost their
lives, was traduced ; aud that instead
of canonizing the Blain, tho real de
sign was to lift treason out of its
humiliation, to endow it -with' power,
to make it potent for mischief, and
even to crown it with the garland of
victory.' 1 : '' , '' ' . , ' '-:
The President, doubtless, compre
hends better now tliat it is not easy to
deceive tho people in a case like this."
The hardest ; hit Mr. Johnson has
received yet was from a negro. He
made a formal offer of the Freedmon's
Bureau to Frederick Douglass, the
well-known negro and ex-slave, who
declined the offer, substantially because
Ko- could not associate with Andrew

The Calhoun doctrine pf nullifica
tion and State rights ,imd the former
prescriptive policy' of the South have
become thoroughly imbued in Demo
cratic principles. Tho dangerous sen
timent is urged upon the people in the
present judicial contest.. Hon, Thoa.
Williams, a native of New England is
not considered suitable for preferment.
He has lived with us for the greater
part of his life, but in their eyes u
suQiciently tainted with tho , hated
dogmas of Connecticut to cxoludo him
from our offices and from the State,
were the argument followed , to its
rightful conclusion,, ;This must be
poor consolation for tliat largo pprtion
of our population who cannot claim to
be natives of our State. According
to this theory they aro not, only not
amenable to tho rights and privileges of
citizens but had Democracy the power
they would driccthan from their Iwmi.
Not per force, necessarily ; but what
considerations would there be for livbjr-f-
among those by whom you aro ostra-
iscd politically and talwocd socially ?
Tli is narrow-mindedness was the
prompting of tho recent assault mado
by tho delectable organ of that party
upon tho President and faculty of
iiynesburg College. The Commence
ment didn't suit them. It being next
to nu impassibility for a young man to
complete a course of study in any in

The legal tender ourroncy of the
republic is generally admitted to bo in
all respects tho lest paper currency we
havo ever had. It has answered :hc
purposes of trade in every way .that
no bank paper ever did or could. It
has furnished a circidating medium in
which everybody could rcposo an
abiding confidence. Tho basis of vat
ue being certain at all times, it oidy
required tho restriction of the volume
of tho issuo in order to place it above
the reach of injury. Congress and 'the
government together secured this great
desideratum, and established, it as a
legal tender for the payment of nil
debts. Unfortunately, however, there
existed a great political party all over
the country opposed to nationalization,
and especially in favor of handing the
paper circulation , over , to , the . State
control for thp purpose pff fostering
State luniks, and jthis party,; whih op
posed greenbacks in , tho beginning,
has consistently continued to do so ever
since. ' T ., ,. , is.
Two plans were resorted .to for the
purpose of destroying; the value of this
currency, and each Jiad its respective
advocates among the enemies of do
mestic freedom and harmony. ' ' By the
ono plan it was proposed to keep on
issuing greenbacks, and to use them
in liquidating the national debt. By
the other it was simply proposed to
repeal tho provision: .makinori thes
notes a legal tender in "payment of
debts. ' Uotn amounted to repudiation,
for while the one would dilute the
currency to such an extent as to render
it worthless, and thus prevent its ulti
mate redemption, just as the confeder
ate currency wns rendered useless, the
other, by removing the obligation upon
the people to accept this currency as a
legal tender in payment of debts,
would have led every creditor to de
mand payment in gold . Valuer so that
the price of gold would rise constantly
with' the' demand,, and the standard
beinir crone, the value of the maibacka
would sink rapindly. :a o ttA .'.".n..:
As Conrntmwa overwhelmineiv
Republican, and could not listen for
cpubHeau, ethigsbag, September J8GT;
moment to any proposition calculated
to impair the value of the currency,
the opiqier heads resorted to the dodge
of c laruing that the legal tender net
was unconstitutional, and therefore
null and vdid. Had such a judgment
been pronouueed by the Supreme Court
ot ,tne j united (states, a death-blow
would have been civen to the creeii'
heck eurrcucy.. ; Banks, fiscal institu
tions, municipal corporations, etc.,
unable to uso it under such a decision,
would soon havo placed it at an enor
mous discount in consequence of the
suuuen oeiuanii lor gold tor the trans
action of business. Of all tho forms
of repudiation this one was the most
dangerous, the most insidious, and the
most plausible. It rested upon legal
quibbles about constitutional law. and
sought its way to success through the
courts, in which the people Lave little
Yet this form of repudiation was
gravely adopted by the present cop
jierhead candidate for JStiprenio Court,
Judge George Sliarswood, who, in his
capacity as i'rceidcnt Juilgo ottue
District Court of Philadelphia, deliv
ered a ' written opinion, nreuinir at
length against tho constitutionality of
tnc act, declaring it Invalid on that
ground, an opinion fortunately over
ruled by tho loyal majority ot th
same court. It niattcrqd not to Judge
Sliarswood that this currency was the
basis upon which was reared tho whole
liuancial Inline of tho civil war ; that
upon it was based the banking system,
the general trade, tho revenue policy
and the debt of tho government, and
that in the value of that currency were
destroyed tho most ternblo ruin must
overspread everything. Ho only saw
his old State sovereignty theories, Ins
antiquated antipathy to paper cur
There were all the old worn-out
cries about rug money nnd rng barons,
and nil the stupid clamors about the
danger of the national government
grasping the purse and the sword, and
all the exaggerated notions about the
value of hard money ; nnd although
these notes were issued by tho govern'
incut and not by banks, and wero has'
cd upon all the'resourecs of the nation,
the Judge could not see that they had
any special or important value. He
still clung to his old faith that State
issues were tho best and safest. The
control of tho currency is ono of the
greatest attributes of sovereignty, and
the Calhoun school of politicians, to
which the Judge has all Ins lite be
longed, insists upon this point more
strongly than upon any other, ns es
sential to their idea of the Federal
character of the government, ns against
she theories and principles of nation
ality. This is why the CaUmunites have
so strenuously endeavored to invalidate
the greenbacks by taking saway from
them their legal-tender character. All
the onslaught upon tho legnl-tonder
provision had this aim. For tlitt
reason they ransacked till tho resources
of legal quibbling to prqvo tho act un-
u'liusiauiLivimi, uiu nivitrmuiu resort oi
this party at all times and under all
circumstances. ney prolonged the
incessant cry they havo kept up for
iniriy years against every measure mat
tended to strengthen the national pow
er or give efficiency to tho government
aery that has licon so abused as to
lead people lo pay no attention to ar
guments about constitutionality, even
when well tounded. Ihey have held
tip the Constitution as a thing so re
stricted in its grants as to give to the
national government no power even to
defend itself against destruction. They
alleged that we had no constitutional
power to coerce a rebellious Slate ; that
we had no authority to liberate the
slaves, even when they wero being
nsca to build reiicl torts and to sup
port rebel armies; that we had no
right to raise national armies by con
scription when volunteering failed, but
must depend solely On tho free action
of tho States separately for men ; and,
as a corollary to tho rest, that wo had
no right to issue a paper currency,
without which wc could not have car
ried on the war. Most appropriately
they now pf onounce it unconstitutional
to refuse to allow tho conquered rebels
to monopolize entiro control of their
States, and to oppress tho frecdincn
and the Uuionists, and insist that we
have no right to prevent their usurp
ing the representation of thoso States
in ttongress.
: This is tho political school of con
stitutionalists to which Judge Sliars
wood belongs. Iho constitution to
which he addresses his endeavors would
be a most clastic instrument for all
State sovereignty purposes, but a most
ngid nnd unbending one for all na
tional uses or necessities. , With the
same facility that these men could re
pudiate tho control of tho national
government over rebellious Statcs,they
repudiated the right of that govern
ment to raise armies for its own de
fence, and sought to repudiate the cur
rency upon which tho civil war was
conducted, and upon winch' the entire
business and credit ot tho nation rcst-
od. : ' . ' .'
Had Judge Sliarswood been able to
manage the affairs of tho republic to
suit himself, his decision in the legal
tender case shows beyond all dispute
tliat he would have repudiated the
whole greenback currency, and thus
rendered it worthless. Every man or
woman in tho land would have been a
direct loser to tho full amount of that
money iu hand. . All the banks wonld
have been obliged to close, as there
would no longer havo been any es
tablished circulating medium. - In the
public ' finances, national, State and
local, nothing short of anarchy would
have existed, for all the business of the
nation had passed into that .' channel.
and where we sluiuld all have brought
up no one can now telL -
; All this for the sake of hair-epUt-
&ig abstractions about ' constitutional
powers, originating in a partisan de
termination' to weaken the national
government and to strengthen that of
tue States. .All flnS to Embarrass and
if possible arrest he progress of a war
for the siipprcssltm of gigantic re
bellion nntf the liberation of an en
slaved race. All thu) to humiliate an
administration tliat won the admira
tion of the civilized world by its sub
lime courage, its heroic devotion to
freedom and huinjmftV, and its undy
ing zeal . for tho integrity of tho re
public. All this to give aid and com
fort to a lost and perishing Cause. All
this for tho sake of that nlmminable
institution of slavery which was so
long the curso of the nation, and for
the defenco of which the constitutional
quibbles were all coniured im. All
this to endeavor to revive and sustain
a ruinous system of localized 1 bank
currency, the ttiost infamous ami atro
cious that ever blasted the fitlr fanio of
a nation. -AbWA -flromean. 1 ' "
