The Convention called by Gen. Har

be called another Soldiers' Convention,
BO that the true sentiments of the de

ay one, after reading the accounts
tierein given of the conduct of thea
gnts of the Bureau in Virginia and
Nirth Carolina, can support the worse
th n "slaveocratic"system under which
tin negroes of the South are at present
beiig "maintained" and "educated,"
then his nature is devoid of every
spark of humanity and every instinct
of honesty. The doings of the"Rev."
Mr. Fitzshould be sufficient to shock
the aoi&'ibihtk-s of -any loan who is not
atftad*k*id Au Tisadi ni-
ten tiary of Hell." Talk of Abolition
philanthropy! Talk of New England
humanitarianism! The "Rev." Mr.
Fitz is the very personification, the
quintupled quintessence of the hypoc
risy which has found vent in the cant
of the demi-devils that have used the
pulpit to instil into the public mind
those pestilent heresies. The New Eng
land Fitzes have abolished the South
ern system of slavery, and upon its ru
ins have established their own. The
i crack of the "slave-driver's whip is
; no longer heard, but th • crack of the
thumb-joints of the negro as lie swings
by the Bureau Agent's cord, is heard
in its stead. Philanthropic Fitz! Hu
mane Freedmen's Bureau!

The soldier-citizt ns.of the State are
organizing "Clyiner C!ul)s" and n.<>-
ving with great unanimity ir. favor of
the policy of President Johnson. We
observe that in Philadelphia "Soldiers'
Johnson Clubs" are about being form

York and other counties the returned
veterans are rallying under the bright
.banner of the glorious Clymer. Two

called the Harrisburg 'ft ihvyrttpb, tie
substance of which a.aide i-the v< .o
by President Johnson of the bill ad
milting the Territory of Colorado as a
state into the IJnion. It accuses the
President of proffering to the .Senators
of that Territory admittance into the
iTiion, provided they would support
bis policy. The article says they be
came indignant at the President'- prop
osition and that he then vetoed the
Bill. Let "all the world and 11> • rest
of mankind'' read the President's veto
message and they will lind that ir was
on some other account that tiie veto
was made. The President's policy is
not for trade, or sale, like that of the
Radicals. They are willing to swop
Amnesty to the late rebels for Negro
Suffrage so as to keep themselves in
power. The President's objections to
admitting Colorado as a State into the
Union, areas valid as any objections
to any thing wrong could possibly be.
1. The last election held in that Terri

were willing to become a state, was uot
held in a legal manner. Ataforruexelec

and some odd votes were east and only '
150 majority, oolled in favor of becom- (
ing a State. 1. The decrease of popu- j

coming a State. Such are the reasons.'

II? March. 1546, the rirs: ,-ection- of the
bridge, 1 -el ween the then borough and
