"Light, more light!" is the start
ling cry of the honest people groping
in thedarkness of Radicalism. "Light,
more light!" shouts the groaning tax
payer, bending under the load which
a Radical Congress has heaped upon
him. "Light, more light!" is the
pleading cry that comes to us from
those who earnestly seek a remedy for
the disease that is tugging at the vi
tals of the nation. Look and ye shall
see! Read and ye shall know! The

Not only should every Democrat
have his county newspaper, during the
coming campaign, but he Should like
wise make it a point to furnish his Re
publican neighbor a copy. This is
the plan upon which our opponents
have acted for years, and it is about
time that Democrats do something of
the same sort. NOW, GO TO WORK
and pat your Democratic neicspaper into
the hand* of entry Republican who will \
read. If you will do this you will
accomplish more good in six months
than you will >v anv other means in
six years. Democratic politicians, 1
throughout the county, are enabled, by
"the above low lewis, t< circulate Dem
ocratic nevysyapers at * very
cost. We appeal to them to -ee (oget
ling up clubs, and to see to it in time.
Now is the time to sow the seed. Af
ter a little while the heat of pa-sion
and prejudice will beam upon the pub
lic mind in all its interne fierceness,:
and then seed-time will have passed.
Friends, let, us hear from you !
The Legislature passed a* registry
law, the other day, which is directed
generally against the liberties of the
citizens of the Commonwealth, but
more especially against the rights and
privileges of those of foreign birth. .It
puts tho decision as to the right of a
man to vote, almost exclusively into
the hands of the Assessor. That offi
cer is required to register only such as
he knows to be voters ; those whom he
does not know to be voters, must call
upon him in person, if they desire to
be registered. This makes it necessa
ry for ma ay people to lose two days in
stead of one, in order to exercise the
privilege of voting. It will be seen
th tt this stroke is leveled at the labor
ing classes, many of whom, it is fond
ly hoped by the Radical authors of this
law, will not be able to lose the time
which it will require to call upon the
Assessor and obtain registration. This
act also requires that naturalized citi
zens shall exhibit certificates of natu
ralization to the Assessor, before their
names shall be put upon the registry.
No matter how long a foreign-born citi
zen may have been a enter, ne mast pr r -
sent a certiji'iite of natural nation to the
Assessor, or he wilt not be registered as
a voter! This requires the loreign-born
voter to wait upon the Assessor in per
son, if he desires to retain the privi
lege of voting. Was there ever devi
sed a more infamous trick to roh citi
zens of their dearest rights? Know
Notbingism, in its mint riotous days,
conceives! of nothing halt so mean
and dastard. Let press and people
take up the cry and denounce this
infamous law, until it shall stink like the
carrion that it is, in the nostrils of the
very men who enacted it.
The Rump Congress, having kept
Alabama out of the Union for nearly
threo years after slve acknowledged
herself to be in, and avowed her desire
to remain in the Union, in order to
humiliate and disgrace the white peo
pleof that State, are about to drag her
in black end foremost! Under its Re
construction policy the Rump gave
Alabama an "opportunity" to form a
Constitution. That is to say, there
was a registration of voters by- which
every negro in (fie Slate, no matter how
illiterate, was permitted to vote for
members of the Convention which was
to form the Constitution, whilst large
numbers of whiles were disfranchised
by the refusal of the Rump Registrars
to put their names upon their lists.
By this infernal fraud, it was hoped
that such a Convention would be elec
ted, as would do the bidding of the
miserable crew who expected to get
into |>ower under the Rump reconstruc
tion. ' And this expectation was ful
filled. The Convention was composed,
largely, of negroes, fresh from the rice
field and the cotton plantation, con troll
de by a few designing ad venturers from
the Northern states, and a half dozen
miserable Southern renegades. The
instrument framed by them, which;
they dignified with the name of "Con-1
stitution of the State of Alabama," j
is entirely worthy of such a body. ]
II disfranchize s aft who do not cote for j
its adoption (there is freedom for you I
with a vengeancei; it disfranchises all !
who are disfranchised by the Recon-.
struetion acts; it permits every negro inthe j
State to vote and any negro to hold office; it j
allows ino rmarriageof whitesandblacks; '■
il authorizes mixed schools of white and >
black children, and disallows separate ]
schools to he established for Ha fwo races;
it prohibits railroad companies frffin
separating black from white passen
gers, and establishes the most terrible
and revolting test oath. • Tins "Con
stitution" was submitted to the people
of Alabama, some time ago, accord
ing to theprovinionsof the Reconstruc
tion Acts, which specify that if a ma
jority of the registered voters of the State
shall vote upon the Constitution, and il
a majority of that majority cast their
ballots in favor of the Constitution,
then the Constitution shall be consider
ed adopted, and the "State entitled to
representation in Congr-'-s. Now,
mark, the Reconstruction Acts require
that a majority of the registered voters
of the State must vote, one way or the
| other, the Constitution; if such
majority do not vote, then the Con
, stitution mu-t be considered rejected.
In the case of iabama. the white peo
ple, being almost to a man opposed to
the infamous "Constitution" submit
ted for their approval, or rejection,
did not vote, and the result was that a
majority of thi registered voters of the
State was not polled, and the Negro
"Constitution" was defeated. Now,
notwithstanding this decision of the
registered voters of Alabama, the Rump
Congress declares this Negro Constitu
tion to have been adopted and is about to
turn over into the hand- of the ignor
ant blacks and deviiish whites elected
to office under this Constitution, the
government of the State of labama.
A bill for this purpose has already
the national House of Repre
sentatives. This, too, is being done
against the advice of Gen. Meade, the
satrap of the Alabama district, who
certifies the defeat of the "Constitu
tion." If such rascality does not open
the eyes of the Northern people, they
I must be blind indeed.
' "THE SWA-BEU.Ii: lU TClir
Emulous of the infamy of John
Hickman, who, the other day, in the
House of Representatives, poured out
his superfluous bile upon the devoted
heftds of the Irish Catholics, Mr. Sena
tor Fisher, of Lancaster, he of the un- \
kempt locks and rum-blossomed nose,
regaled the Senate with a string of
whiskv-in -pired anathemas against the
foreign-born citizens of Pennsylvania.
He spoke of them as '•ignorant, bog
trotting Irishmen," and "swag-bellied,
lager beer Dutchmen." Senator Lan
don, of Bradford, another representa
tive of the Radical party, declared
that the negro ''is better entitled to
the elective franchise than the Irish
Germans, Irishmen, foreign-horn
citizens! Do you not see the malice
these men bear toward you ? Must you
be told that they seek to disfranchise
you, as they have already disfranchised
the white peoph of the South? The
infamous Registry Law which has
just been parsed, is intended to rob
you of your rights. Organize! Bring
your friends forward and have them
naturalized! Look up your naturali
zation pap— rs, for you wii! need them.
If yoii have lost them, apply at once to
the Clerk of the Courts of the county
in which you were naturalized, for a
certified copy, too this at once, so that
you will be ready in time. Your liber
ty is at stake and if you would preserve
it,you must bestir yourselves. There
are tens o' thousand- 1 of foreigners,
among our very best people, many of
whom served in the army of the Un
ion, who are not naturalized. Demo
crats everywhere should look into this
matter and see that such persons re
ceive the proper papers. There will
be hut two sessions of Court between
this time and the election, and those
desiring to be naturalized should at
tend to the matter at once.

Geary Goes Rack On Uls Pledge*.
Governor Geary has vetoed the
"Free Railroad Law," recently passed
by the Legislature, on the ground that
it would give railroad companies too
large privileges, and on the additional
ground that the title of the bill did not
cover the subject matter. The latter
is a mere technicality. The former is
exactly what the people not interested
in the great railroad monopolies of the
State, desired. No, not "Zoo large
privileges," but as large privileges as
it is in the power of the Legislature to
grant. The fact is, that too large
privileges cannot be granted to those
who wish to build railroads under the
proposed Free Railroad Law. Hence,
the reasons given by Geary for his veto,
are entirely insufficient. We have no
doubt he had weightier reasons for his
action than those he gives in his veto
message. He was pledged to sign a
fair Free Railroad Bill, but it is evi
dent tliat he will give his approval to
none that will be df any account to the
In the debate on the Registry Law,
in the House of Representatives at
Harrisburg, on the second inst., Mr.
Hickman, of Chester, u-ed the follow
ing language:
"The whole foreign Irish Catholic
vote had always been cast in down
right, absolute ignorance of our insti
tutions. * Take an ignorant
Irishman, just lauded, who swears to
support the Constitution, he is allowed
to vole became he so swears to support
the Constitution, when lie can't read
the Constitution, not even the New
Testament. 77 If the Legisla
ture had adopted his amendment to
the Constitution, no one could have
voted, had he not been able to read
the Constitution, and that would have
excluded one half of the Democratic
voters; then", the negroes would have
been admitted, and they would have
counterbalanced the remainder of the
Democratic voters."
Mr. Hickman desires the exclusion
of the foreign horn white citizens from
the privilege of voting, and wants the
Negroes to take their place at the bal
lot-box. He says, the Negroes can
read, but the Irish Catholics cannot !
Thus are the foreign horn citizens ol
Pennsylvania insulted by the Radical
leader in the Legislature. Shame!

WASHINGTON, April 8. Tne doub
le-leaded editorial in to-day's Tribune
announcing that Gen. Grant does not
think it inconsistent with his duties
as a soldier to make it known that the
President should be removed, and that
the impeachment- should succeed, etc.;
has caused considerable comment here |
to-night. General Grant's friends say
there is no authority for tlie Tribune's
statement, and that General Grant has
not ma .e known to any one his views of
the impeachment trial. It is the gen
eral lielief here that the object of the
Tribune's editorial was to strengthen
certain radical Senators whom the o
riginal impeachcrs designate as "weak
kneed ;" in other words, Senators who
refuse tocommit themselves iu advance
to a verdict in the impeachment trial.
Assistant Adjutant General Town
send has prepared a statement of all
the military divisions -ind departments
formed during the past tiity years,
showing that the same were formed by
order of the several Presidents. This
account is prepared at the request of

[From the New York Herald.J
The hero of Big Bethel held forth be
fore the Senate on Monday for four
hours, rendering a rigmarole of bis o
pi 11 ions. is opinions on this occa
sion were about on a par with his just
ly celebrated opinion that Fort Fisher
could not be taken—an opinion which
it will be remembered, he was enga
ged iu elaborately laying down be
fore a committee atWashington when
he was interrupted in his speaking by
the sound of the cannon firing salutes
to celebrate the capture of that fort.
Nearly one-quarter of this rigmarole is
taken tip with the working out of But
ler's great idea that the Court of ini
peachnient is not a court—that it is a
commission or an inquest, or a caucus
or some other undefined sort of assem
blage—anything or everything that
anybody may choose, but not a court.
And what is the reason <>f all this spe
cial pleading 011 this tea I? It is that
the Radicals do not want to try the
case in accordance with the established
rules of law. If the body trying im
peachment is a court, its process
must be what Blackstone says im
peachment is—"a prosecution of the al
ready known and established law."
It must proceed according to law, and,
more than all, must accept tiie law
from the presiding judge. Hence alt
Butler's chop logic to prove that the
court is not a court. He and his par
ty fear to try their case under tiie law.
and have no other hope but in pass
ion and prejudice.
Let the people keep in view tin
great fact that there is no safety save
111 the law. If a man is not willing to
be governed by the law it is because
he is not willing to be governed at all;
it is because, not perceiving the im
mediate protection that the law would
guarantee for his own rights, be wish
es to throw down the barrier it sets up
to guard tiie rights of others from his
assault. Our personal liberties have
no limits set in theorv, but we find
in practice that they stop where the
rights of others begin, and it is ihe
province of t lie law to define the line.
I'lie law is the rule of action which
leaves the greatest freedom to each
that is consistent with the safety ol
all; and wlier. men wish deliberately
to act by some other rule, it is thai
their devotion to some idea or the in
terests of some person or class incapac
itates them from surveying calmly tlu
relations of that class to the whole. has been wilh fanatics always.
80 it is with the lunatic wliofinds him
self so at variance with the thoughts ol
those around him that he cannot gov
ern his conduct by their standards, hut
holds the law to be ridiculous and non
sensical. Men always pretend to be
governed by motives higher than the
view of the law, and it is tlieevil to so
ciety that it sometimes listens to
this dangerous heresy. Fanatics have
gone so tar in their objections to the
law that they have regarded it as the
essence of all injustice and its protec
tion of property as theft—the thief who
keeps himself being the only honest
Butler and his fellow zealots have a
similar idea of law, and spurn it as a
rule on which to carry forward their
case. They would substitute their
opinions in its place. Hence their de
finition of impeachment is, read fully,
somewhat different from what Butler
read it to the Senate. It should read
thus; "wedefine an impeachable high
crime or misdemeanor to be one in its
nature or consequences subversive ot
some principle of government that we
believe in—like nigger sutt'iage—or
highly prejudicial to the public interest,
as we understand u ; and this may con
sist of a violation ot Ibe Constitution
or law, or what we consider such by
an act committed, or omitted, or with
out violating a poaiiire late, by the
abuse of discretionary powers, or what
we, iu the free exercise of our opinions
regard as such an abuse." This defin
ition gives the sentiment of the pros
ecution more clearly t'lan Butler did.
and shows also how well the wise n en
who made the constitution understood
what impeachment might I.natty 0 me
to. Mr-. Gouvirneir Morrris said to
the convention : "Much has been said
of tho intrigues that will lie practised
by the Executive to get into office.
Nothing has been said on the other
s de of the intrigues to get !hiin out of
office." Charles Coltswoith Pinckney
said : "If he opposes a fav rite law the
two houses will eombiue against him,
and under ihe influence of heat and fac
tion throw him out of office."

When the minutes of tho last day of
trial were read, Mr. SuTnner made a
motion to correct the journal hy inser

opinion that the vote of the Chief Ju
tiee was unauthorized and of no effect.
Oil tiiis motion lie demanded the yeas
and nays, which were taken, and re
sulted—yeas 21,-nays 27. So the mo
tion was not agreed to. he question
as to the admissibility of Mr. Bur
leigh's testimony about a conversation
between himself and General Thomas,
was submitted to the Senate by ihe
Chief Justice. Before a vote was ta
ken, Mr. Frelinghuysen, of New Jer
sey, inquired whether the managers
intended to connect the testimony of
the witness with the respondent. Mr.
Butler said they proposed to do so.
Mr. Stanhery then rose and made a
lengthy argument, showing that the
declarations of General Thomas ought
not to be used against the President.
Mr. Butler replied, and Mr. Curtis re
joined. The Senate then decided, by a
vote of 39 to 11, to admit Mr. Bur
leigh's testimony. His testimony was
to prove that Tbomas'intended to use
force to eject Stanton, and that lie
tried to seduce clerks in the War Of

for them when he became Secretary.
