THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE.
We print, on our outside pages, the
annual message of the President of the
United States, and ask that all "unto
whom these presents may come," will
give that document a careful perusal.
The grave importance of the questions
which it discusses, as well as the propri
ety of ascertaining for ourselves the
characterof the information concerning
the state of the country, which the
Chief Executive has seen fit to transmit
to Congress, renders it the duty of eve
ry good citizen to read and ponder the
President's message. For our own
part, we are not inclined to comment
upon it at length. Suffice it to say that
it is sound on the issues of the day, and
is written with great force and ability.
The President's treatment of the "Re
construction" question, is happy in the
extreme, and we doubt whether the
immortal Webster himself could have
made a clearer and more cogent argu
ment upon the constitutional points
involved in that question, than that
given us by Mr. Johnson. If any man
can read the President's discussion of
the Reconstruction Acts, and after
wards believe them either constitu
tional, or practicable, he must be "pos
sessed of a devil." As to Mr. Johnson's
views on financial matters, we believe
them to be sound. A resumption of
specie payments, would go far toward
restoring business to its natural chan
nels. The withdrawal of the National
Bank issues and the substitution in
theirstead, of government legal tenders,
would be a step in this direction and
would cancel a considerable portion
of our bonded debt on which we are
now paying interest in coin. But we
refer our readers to the Message, and
leave them to judge of its merits, for
"THE WILL OF THE I'OLOREII PEO
We cull this flower from the parterre
of Ulysses S. Grant, that is to say, we
pull this specimen brick out of the
structure of the Report of the Acting
Secretary of War:
"The will of the colored people may
be in favor of supporting loyal offioe
holders, but their intelligence is not
now sufficient to enable them to com
bine for the execution of their will.—
All their combinations are now con
ducted by white men under the protec
tion of the military; if this protection j
is withdrawn the white men now con
trolling would withdraw with it; and
some of the Southern people, now ex
asperated at what they deem the freed
nien's presumption, would not be very ;
gentle toward them, so that the pres- ,
ence of a larger force will be required'
for some time to maintain the freed- j
men in the right of suffrage."
"The will of the colored people may
be in favor of supporting loyal office
holders." We had thought there was
no subjunctive mood about that mat- j
ter. Ulysses Simpson Grant, we are
astonished at you! To think that you
could have any douot about the "will
of the colored people" being in favor of
supporting loyal office-holders! Are
the Southern blacks not all "loyal" to
their very hearts' core! Were they
not always Union men and true to the
"old flag" during the war! Nay, didn't
"the colored troops fight bravely!"—j
And yet you coldly say "the will of
the colored people may be in favor of
supporting loyal office-holders." A
gain, "their intelligence is not now '
sufficient," <fce. Why, we had suppos
ed that the colored people of the South
are the most intelligent of all the in
habitants of Dixey, at least far more
so than the white disfranchised rebels.
Are not the "colored people" revising
the Constitution of the Southern Stales,
improving upon the work of the Pinck
neys, the Crawfords, the Houstons and
the Prentisses, and do you dare to say,
Ulysses Grant, that they are not intelli
gent ? "All their combinations are
now conducted by white men under
the protection of the military." Soft
ly, softly, Ulysses! We are under the
impression that slavery was abolished
some years ago. Is it possible that we
are mistaken? Can it be that the
"will of the colored people" is still
trammeled and fettered and that "white
men, protected by the militaryconduct
"colored" organization? Is it really
true that the "colored man" is still a
beast of burden in the hands of white
men, who control him and make him
do their bidding, with a bayonet at
his back instead of the overseer's whip?
O Ulysses, it cannot be ! And yet you
say so. "And some of the Southern
people, now exasperated at what they
deem the freed men's presumption,
would not be very gentle toward them,
so that the presence of a larger force
will be required for some time to main
tain the freedmen in :he right of suf
frage." Only some of "the Southern
people." We were led to believe that
all of the Southern people are murder
ers, wolves, blood-hounds, hyenas,
gorillas; you know they are, Mr. Grant,
for all the Radical presses and preach-
ers say so, and you wouldn't pretend
to say that they lie. And because
"some of the Southern people (Ulysses
will be exclusive and denominate the
te/iifes of the South the Southern people)
would not be very gentle toward the
freedn.en (who, according to Ulysses,
are neither part nor parcel of the South
ern people) therefore , "the presence of
a large force will be required to main
tain the freedmen in the right of suff
rage." Let it be remembered that the
people of theSoulh must be "very gen
tle toward the freedmen," if the latter
are to maintain the right of suffrage.
Gentle will not do; "very gentle" is the
word. And to make the people of the
South "very gentle" toward the fretd
men, the presence of a large force will be
required. Right for once, Ulysses!—
A larger force will be required! Yes,
Negro Suffrage must be sustained!
More troops must be sent to the South !
The Southern people must be made
"very gentle toward the freedmen."
And "who cares for expenses?"
PKOKE4T TEI> FOB 1.1 BEE.
The editors of the Lancaster Intelli
gencer have been prosecuted for pub
lishinga libel upon a certain clergyman
who shall be nameless in this article.
With the "merits" of this case we have
nothing to do, and, therefore, shall
not attempt to discuss them. But we
deem itourduty, as a public journalist,
to say a word in regard to the kind of
suit bv which Rev. seeks vindica
Under the lawsof Pennsylvania, tiiere
are two kinds of action for Libel , viz :
Criminal Prosecution and Ac/ion for
Damages. In Criminal Prosecutions,
the Commonwealth is the Plaintiff and
the person who complains of having
been libeled, is merely a witness for the
Prosecution. In this species of cases
the law, also, proceeds upon the anti
quated maxim, "The greater the truth,
the greater the libel." No evidence
in justification of the publication com
plained of, is admitted by the courts
upon trial of cases of this description.
Indeed, if the defendant were to prove
the truth of his allegations, how could
such proof avail him when the greater
truth only makes the greater libel ?
The fiction of law upon which this par
adoxical theory is based, is, that/iie/owa
utterances tend to a breach of the peace.
Hence the intention of the law, in au
thorizing criminal prosecutions for la
bel, is not to enable the person who
brings such prosecutions, to vindicate
his or her private character, but to
maintain the peace and dignity of the
Commonwealth. On the other hand,
upon the trial of Civil Actions for the re
covery of Damages, the rule, "The
greater the truth the greater the libel,"
does not obtain, and the defendant will
be allowed to put in a plea of justifica
tion, and under that plea, the Court
will admit evidence to prove the truth
of the utterance alleged to be libelous.
This species of suit is always brought
by persons who desire to vindicate char
acter or to recover damages for injuries
sustained on account of the libelous pub
Now, Rev. has chosen the form
er of these actions. He prosecutes the
editors of the Intelligencer in order that
the peace and dignity of the Common
wealth of Pennsylvania may not t:e
impaired. There was imminent peril
that "a breach of the peace" would
result from the alleged libelous utter
ances of the Intelligencer. In other
words, such publications might lead to
a fistic collision between the reverend
gentleman and the fighting editor of
the Intelligencer. Therefore, in order
to prevent so great a public calamity,
it was necessary to institute this pros
ecution. Now, we are constrained to
believe that Rev. has taken bad
legal advice. He certainly intended
to bring suit for the purpose of vindi
cating his character. He certainly
did not intend to bringsuch an action as
would prevent the editors of the Intelli
gence)- from putting evidence before
the jury to prove the truth of the publi
cation which lie has sworn is libelous.
A minister of thegospel would never,in-
I tentionally, do such a thing! Nay, he
i would rathersay to the editors of the In
| tclligeneer and to all mankind, "Tell the
truth and shame the Devil!" Hence,
we conclude that the legal advisers of
Rev. have made a great mistake.
Doubtless, having learned the duties of
citizens at the feet of the Radical Ga
maliel, Stevens, those advisers have
so great regard for the "peace and
dignity" of the Commonwealth, that
in their anxiety to do "the State some
; service," they forgot that their client
seeks a vindication of his own defamed
character and that he desires that the
editors of the Intelligencer shall make
good, by lawful proof, before a jury of
his and their countrymen, the allega
tions contained in the article which
he alleges to be false and defamatory.
We have written these lines, "with
malice toward none, with charity for
all" concerned, having only in view
an exposition of the ridiculousness of
the popular idea that a conviction of I
libel operates as a vindication of
the prosecutor's character. We con- j
elude by asking this question: What
criminal may not shield himself from
the criticism of the press, if he can
succeed in convicting the publisher up
on the maxim, the greater the truth the
greater the libel t

The agony is over! The great Im
peachment humbug is played out at
last. On Friday last, Boutwell, the
leader of the Impeaebers, finished his
speech in favor of deposing the Presi
dent, and was replied to by Mr. Wil
son, of lowa. When the latter had
concluded his speech, he moved to lay
upon the table the report of the Im
peachment Committee, and called the
previous question. The Impeachers
raged and roared with chagrin and an
ger. Stevens characterized Wilson's
motion as "an unheard-of outrage."
Butler, Logan, Schenck and Ashley
resorted to dilatory motions, but to no
purpose. On Saturday the Impeachers
hoisted a flag of truce and proposed
that if Wilson would withdraw his
resolution to lay on the table, and agree
to take a direct vote upon the Impeach
ment resolution, they would cease mak
ing dilatory motions. This proposition
was accepted, and a vote was taken
upon the resolution, which resulted as
follows: Ayes, . r >7, Noes, 108! Thus
was Impeachment slain in the house
of its friends. Thus did C'ongriss sur
render to Andrew Johnson. Thus was
the President of the United States, by
a vote of two to one, vindicated from
the false and malignant charges pre
ferred against him by iiis enemies.
Let the country breathe freely. The
Ogre, Radicalism, is slain, coffined and
buried out of sight.
THAT'S THE TALK.
Recently a committee of Kansas sol
diers addressed a letter to Gen. Thomas
Ewing, asking him whether it would
be prudent to form clubs for the sup
port of Gen. Grant for President. Gen.
Pawing replied as follows:
"I hope yet to be able to support
Gen. Grant for the Presidency ; but I
want first to know whether he approves
of the reconstruction measures, for, if
he does, I cannot support him. I re
gard them as mischevious; begotten of
revenge, misdirected philanthropy
and lust of power. I would as soon ex
pect a house to stand on the crater of a
living volcano, as a State, where whites
and blacks being nearly equal in num
bers, the whites are proscribed, and the
blacks made rulers. Such a govern
ment cannot long have the heartfelt
sympathy of any large body of white
Now, there's some sense in that kind
of talk. Gen. Ewing will not support
Gen. Grant because he is Ulysses Simp
son Grant, but will support him if he
accords with him in political senti
ment. With men of intelligence, hero
worship is "played out." Gen. Ewing
is, hims 'lf, a soldier, but he is* also a
statesman and a patriot. Such a man
cannot support any candidate, (not ev
en Gen. Grant,) who accepts, whether
openly, or tacitly, the tyrannical and
outrageous "Reconstruction" policy of
the Radical Congress.
There was no general election in this
State, this fall, but the returns of the
elections indicate that the Democrats
have a majority in the Prairie State.
Last year the State gave upwards of
fifty thousand Radical majority. Tru
ly, the political revolution of the pres
ent year has been overwhelming.
Ox the second inst., HON GEOKUK
SUAKS WOOD, took his seat as a Judge
of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.
On last Saturday morning, Judge
Sharswood's long connection with the
District Court of Philadelphia closed.
The Court room was crowded and an
address of farewell was delivered by
David Paul Drown, Esq., on behalf of
the members of the Dar, to which the
Judge made a brief reply.

THE President requests Congress to
repeal the Reconstruction acts. Con
gress will think about it. If the Mary
land militia do not invade Pennsylva
nia, Congressmen will think it safe to
repeal those acts. But they will watch
the aforesaid militia until after the
next Presidential election.
CUFF EE AT WORK I
A Itlm k Rebellion in Alabama.
MONTGOMERY, Ala., Doc. 4.
Alarming excesses have recently
been committed by blacks in Bullock
County, in the neighborhood of Perote.
The colored loyal leagues have organ
ized and resisted the processes of the
civil authorities. Under instructions
from colored emissaries, they have
framed a code of laws to govern t he ne
gro population, opened a court, officered
and organized, and are arresting by
night all blacks who oppose their un
lawful proceedings, and have carried
punishment so far that their victims
have applied to the civil authorities
for protection. The black sheriff and
his deputy were finally arrested, but
other insurrectionary leaders organized
the negroes and made armed resistance.
Aid from other leagues was summon
ed, and the blacks flocked to Union
Springs, threatening a general rising
and the extermination of the whites,
and taking possession of the country.
The black leaders went to the planta
tions and forced the laborers to join
them for vengeance, showing pretended
orders from General Swayne that they
had a right to kill all resisting their
authority. During the excitememt
the negro church at Perote was burned
by unknown parties—it is alleged by
black leaguers, to inflame the negroes.
The whites universally regret it. The
white citizens have organized for pro
tection. General Swayne was appeal
ed to, and sent a detachment of troops
promptly to the scene of troubles to
restore order. The black insurrection
ists have been arrested and lodged in
jail, to be tried by the civil authorities.
At the last accounts, order was restored,
and all was quiet.
TIIE majority report on the Impeach
ment question was written by Thouias
Williams of the Twenty-third District
of Pennnsylvania. It was mainly pre
pared several months ayo, and would
have constituted the minority report,
hut for the accession to the Impeachers
of Air. Churchill, of New York.

Now, reader, soli-abuse, venereal diseases badly
cured, and sexual excesses, are all capable ol pro
ducing a weakness of the generative organs. The
organs of generation, when in perfect health, make
the man. Did you ever think that those bold, de

men are always those whose generative organs
are in perfect he Ith ? You never hear such
men complain of being melancholy, ot nervous
ness, of palpitation of the heart. They are nev

don't become sad and discouraged ; they are al

and look you and them right in the face—none ot

inflamed by running to excess. These will not

The true value of Machinery applied to Watch
making is not that by its use Watches are made
rapidly, but that they are made correctly. Very
few people know why a Waltham Watch should
be superior to any other. In the first place, at
Waltham the Watch is regarded as only a machine,
to be constructed like any other machine, on me
chanical principles. If the watches are good, it
is because the machinery is good. Of course there
must be no defect in the principle or plan of the
movement—no mistake in the sizes or shapes of
the pieces of which it is composed—nothing want
ing in tikir properties, and no error in their posi
tions. These points once thoroughly settled, it
rests wholly with the machinery, constructed with
infinite d versity of form and function expressly
for the purpose, to produce the finished pieces.
By means ot multyplying guages and microsco) es,
tests and inspection for the detection of wear in
the cutting tools, and for faults and flaws in steel
or stone are made to accompany the work in ev
ery stage from beginning to end. As a necessary
result, the watch goes together a perfect machine.
Every part is found to fit properly in its place.
Every pin may be pushed till it pinches, and ev
ery screw turned home. Ins cad of a sluggish and
feeble action, Ihe balance, even under the pressure
of the lightest vibrates with a wide
and free motion, and the beat has the clear ring
ing sound always characteristic of the Waltham
Watch. The machine is a time-keeper from the
This system of watchmaking is unknown in for
eign countries, and is entirely original with the
Waltham Company. The Company claim that by
it they produce watches that cannot be equalled
for every quality which makes a watch valuable.
Simple ih plan and correct in principle, the move
ment is not only beautifully fiuished, substantial,
accurate and cheap, but is uniform in the minu
test details, net easily damaged, and when re
paired always as good as new. There are differ
ent grades of finish in the different varieties of
watches made by the Waltham Company, as
there are different sizes and shapes to suit all tastes
and means; but every Watch that bears the gen
uine trai<-mark of "WALTHAM" is guarantied to
be a good oue, and nobody need be afraid to buy
