Facts are stubborn things. The Copper
heads understood this when, in adopting
the fourth article of the Harrisburg plat
form they attempted to turn the public- no
tice from their own miserable failure, by
resolving that a reform was needed in the
management of our state and national
finances. Knowing their own weakness
they dared not refer to their own record, but
by inuendo hoped to cast suspicion upon
the republican management of the finances.
They well knew that reference to their own
record would be fatal and ihey also knew
that no truthful charge could be made
against the republican management. 1 hat
$43,000,000 of the public debt has been
paid off since the Republicans catnc into
power on the 4th of March is a very signifi
cant and a very stubborn fact. That the
Internal Revenue is to day more honestly
and economically collected than ever before
is not denied by even the most hardened
copperhead politician. That the country is
several hundred millions of dollars better off
by reason of the increased value of its bonds
and securities, the result of republican
economy and good management, is a matter
of world wide notoriety. Under Andy
Johnson's copperhead administration, the
government found difficulty in negotiating
loans at seven and three tenths per cent.
Five months of Republican rule and econo
my and we are now offered any quantity of
money at 5 per coot and refuse it because
we can get it for les3. \Y ith deerea-od taxa
tion, but a more honest and economical col
lection and management, the receipts from
Internal Revenue have amounted to the
enormous sum of S6OO,(XX) per day, for the
past month, far more than was ever collect
ed and paid into the Treasury by Andy-
Johnson and his copperhead officials even
when taxation was much heavier. This i
thc work of Republicans daring five months
and it presents deeds and facts that cannot
be controverted, in contra-t with the empty
promises of copperhead*. The last time
copperheads had full control of tho public
funds was under James Buchanan. When
he yielded the reins of government to Abra
ham Lincoln, it was with a divided country
and a bankrupt Treasury. Why don't the
copperheads print this oue great glaring
fact in the largest kind of capitals? The
contrast between their acts and their deeds
would stand thus:
"Reform in the administration of the
Federal and State govern . -r.t in the man
agement of their fin inc-iai affairs is impera
tively demanded.— Harrisburg platform.
A WICKED REBELLION. STOLEN SHIPS
AND FORTS. A ROBBED AND BANKRUPTED
Those are faets, stubborn facts written in
dclibly upon the pages of history and
stamped in blood upon the hearts of the
people. The party is unchanged—its lead
ers arc unchanged—its principles arc uu
changed. Its ranks are filled with tho men
who robbed our country's Treasury, stole
her ships, fired upon herfl >.v, and murdered
in cold blood her bravest sou?. Rebels and
Iraitors, rhieves and Robbers crowd its
ranks and the day is far distant when the
men who preserved our I nion will consent
to trust her destinies in the hands of a party
with such an infamous record. These are
facts—not false promises.
tOI'AL MKN flil'ST KI LE.
The work of Reconstruction in the South
shows the spirit oi Rebellion to be still
smouldering in the hearts cf the former
rebels. In the hope of controlling the work
of reconstrncticn they have professed an
acquiescence in the legislation of Congress
and an acceptance of the results of the war,
but their hypocrisy has been so glaring and
their efforts to intimidate and drive from
the polls all, Loth white and Mack, who
will not vote with them, 60 persistent, in
Virginia and Tennessee, that the President
has felt called upon to reiterate the declara
tion of his inaugural, that the laws of Con
gress must be enforced and the fifteenth
amendment made the basis of reconstruc
tion. By their false professions the South !
ern conservatives have forfeited public con
fidence, Their hypocrisy has greatly re
tarded the work of reconstruction, and
demonstrated the fact that it can only be
entrusted to loyal men. It had been much
better for the peace and prosperity of the
. v outh if the so-called conservatives had
made no profession of loyalty. Their bad
faith bas greatly complicated the situation.
W hen a class or party hasonee demonstra
ted the fact that their promises and profes
sions cannot be relied upon, it requires a
long time to restore confidence in any sub
sequent declarations thev may make. The
conservatives have evidently made this mis
take. But one course now seems to remain
by which any speedy reconstruction of the
b °uth can be accomplished. The work
must be confided to the hands of those,
whose record is untarnished and whose loy
alty has never wavered. Henceforth to the
true I moil men alone the work of recoa
struction must be entrusted. Loyal men
must ru.c, until conservative rebels learu
wisdom by further experience. If hence
tort members of unreconstructed State
legislatures are met with the " iron-clad
oath tbey can console themselves with the
reflection that their own dishonesty and in
tolerance is bearing its legitimate fruit in
their cases. Honesty on their part would
have caused the laws cf Congress to be leui
ently construed and enforced. Their glar
ing bad faith demands a strict construction
and rigid enforcement of thoso laws, which
they are cow likely to receive at the hands
of the President.

THE CRY OF STOP THIEF.
31ost people are familiar with the prac
tice of thieves, when caught in the act, of
running into the crowd and themselves ta
king up the cry of "Stop Thief" in order
to ward off suspicion. The Harrisburg Pa
triot has been engaged in this kind of work
for a week or two past. Having no record
of its OWD party but stealing, it concluded
to fry to ward off suspicion bv charging the
Republican party with dishonesty in the
appropriation of the State funds. The Ga
zette of last week took up the refrain and
t echoed and-re echoed the falsehood of the
Patriot. The whole charge is so weak, fool
ish and utterly without foundation that one
would have Supposed that even the fellows
who scribble for the Gazette would have
detected the cheat of the Patriot. It is
-imply this, thev take the gross receipts
into the State Treasury for two years,
making a little over eleven millions of
doliars and deducting the amount of the
state debt paid off in two years, Hud
that there would bo about seven millions
of dollars left. Without stopping to con-*
aid- r the appropriations and expenses for
tw) years they straightway ask "What has
become of the seven millions?" They
make no allowance for the necessary expens
es of carrying on the state government, the
salaries of the Governor, and other state effi
eers, the Judges of the Supremo Court, the
payment of interest on the state debt, the
appropriations for our Common Schools,
our Agricultural Schools, our Soldiers Or
pban School and other charitable institu
tions, the improvements and care of the
capital buildings, and grounds, &c. The
merest simpleton knows that all these ag
gregate millions each year. The Interest
paid on the state debt in those two years
exceeded four and a half millions, leaving
a .urjing to their own figures only about
tw. and a half millions for all other pur
poses. The wonder is, not where did
the tuoury go, but how did the Repub
licans manage to earry on the Government
-o economically and appropriate so much to
the reduction of the State Debt. IP/ten
did copperheads pay off the State debt at
the rate of IWO MILLIONS OK DOLLARS A
YEAR? Why don't the Patriot and Ga
zette tell us about that? Why don't they
tell the people that under Democratic con
trol the State debt was never paid af all but
increased each year until it exceeded FORTY
MILLIONS? Why don't they tell the people
that, in less than ten years, in spite of a
copperhead rebellion, the Republican party
Lave paid off TWENTY MILLIONS of tho State
debt and rchascd all the Real Estate of the
Slat- from TAXES? Why don't they tell
these things for which thev can easily find
the figures instead of heaping up falshhoods
that the meanest tyro can detect and ex
pose? Why don't the Gazette give its at
tention to the county finances? Why don't
it call attention to thcslo.ooo missing from
the Poor House Treasury a year or two ago?
Surely it has enough to do to take cate of
the finances at home? lluw about that
$10,000? How about our county finances?
How about the present Poor House im
broglio? Who is to ,'pay the piper there?
Since the indictment of a number of
pr. mitt' tit Wall street gamblers a week or
two ago for violation of the usury laws, no
such exorbitant rates have prevailed. This
suggests the question whether the abolition
of our usury lavs is as great an advance in
the way of progress as its advocates claim.
We incline to the opinion that our old time
usury laws were founded in tiuo wisdom and
a vi-e political economy. Indeed we hesi
tate not to declare that in these times of
reckless gambling in stocks and other se
curities, when the whole country isoft-tinics
made to suffer that a few unprincipled
scoundrels may fill their pockets. Nothing
could -o effectually check this fearful tide of
rcckle-s crime, than judicious usury laws
strictly enforced. No measure that we can
at present think of would so greatly tend to
promote public prosperity. -Stock gamb
bl<-r.-,who arc worse than highway robbers,
n>w manipulate the money market for no
otlf*r purpose than raising or depressing
the | rice of stocks and the rates of interest
that they may make money by their vicious
practices, df wc had usury laws restricting
the rates of interest to 6, 7 or S per cent and
strictly enforced them, millions of dollars
that now lie idle in bank vaults, only to be
u- dfor creating panics for the derange
ment 11 bu-dness, would soon find their way
into the hands of enterprising businessmen,
and be invested in manufactures, railroads,
mining, shipbuilding and all the varied oc
< upati-ms known and necessary to our eivili
/. stiun. Let us by ail means have usury
!uw- where there are none, and wherever
j ! hey are let them be rigidly enforced. They
will promote the public welfare and none
but sharpers and gamblers will complain.
The condition of our money markets and
the reckless and criminal gambling that
prevails in all the marts of commerce im
peratively demand reform and in no way
can it be better or more surely accomplished
i i'uan by the passage and rigid enforcement
i of stringent usury laws.
FRENCH AMNESTY.—The French Empe
ror celebrated the anniversary of the hun
dredth birthday of Napoleon first by issuing
a decree of full and complete amnesty to
press and political offenders, to persons con
victed of evasion of taxes, deserters from
the army and navy and to sailors in the
merchant marine who have abandoned their
ships. Whether this act of amnesty is to
be credited to the Emperor's head or heart,
it is certainly an acknowledgement of, and a
concession to, the liberal progress of the age.
Even French despotism feels that the influ
enee of liberal ideas can no longer be suc
cessful'y resisted, and that in gradual con
cessions to its demands lies the OQly hope of
perpetuating the Napoleonic dynasty.
THE Southern conservatives reckoned
without theifho3t. They confidently count
ed on the support of the President in their
effort to re store rebel rule in the southern
stiles. Iho v\ alker men in \ irgitiia and
the Senter party in Tennessee claimed that
the Pre i lent was with them and they gained
many votes thereby. The evident bad faith
of these parties has led the President to ex
press himself unequivocally on the side of
genuine Republicanism. The fifteenth
amendment must be the bads of all southern
reconstruction, is the emphatic declaration
of the President; and the refusal of the
Walker party to accept the proposition of
the radical republicans to harmonize is ac
cepted as conclusive evidence of their bad

A STEP TO THE PACIFIC.
Tho agents of the Kansas Pacific Railway,
present, in another column, an enterprise
possessing features which seem to merit
special comment. Having built their road
front Kansas City to Sheridan, and found it
a profitable and promising investment, the
mauagers now propose to continue it to
Denver, and thus open up the trade of the
Rocky .Mountains. That much, it ishopcd.
will be completed by June next and its
agents, Messrs. Dabney, Moboan -& Co.,
and M. K. Jesit & Co., Bankers and
Merchants of high reputation, now tender
through our columns, a loan of §0,500,000
for this purpose.
These gentlemen state with clearness the
reasons which have induced them to give
this loan their endorsement. The Kansas
Paeific Railway now runs through the
centre of Kansas, and is in successful and
profitable operation for over four hundred
miles. We remember the country through
which it passes as a wide, open plain, ap
parently as boundless and rolling as the sea,,
known only to a few tribes of wild, roving In
dians, and occasionally to a venturesome'
squad of stage guards and herdsmen, who
ministered a primitive hospitality every
fifteen or twenty miles. Topeka, Salinaand
Manhattan were little more than the
geographical designations of towns that
hoped to be. llays, Ellsworth, Sheridan
and the twenty stopping-places now upon
its tiiue-table, did not exist, even in the
imagination of the pioneers. Denver was a
mere cluster of mining catiins and Indian
huts, The Gheyennes and Arrapahoes held
solemn council or high revelry in its ways.
There was no law but a great deal of rude,
summary justice, which grieved sober be
lievers in fia/isas corpus, and trial by jury.
Now, Denver is as neat, well built and com
fortable as Hartford, with schools and
chubches, rows of brick stores, hotels aud
tasteful dwellings, which recall the luxury
and comfort of the East. Nature has rim
med and fringed it with the noble Rocky
Mountains, whose hills glisten in snow,
while their aides are clothed with deep and
rich midsummer greenery.
It is now proposed to unite this city with
the East by an extension of the Kansas
Pacific Railway. To do this it will be
necessary to buiid 220 miles of road. The
Managers are wise not to defer it, in the
vain hope of being able to induce Congress 1
to vote them large subsidies. The Govern
ment has built one road to the Pacific at a
great expense. Private citizeus are quite
ready and willing to build another, especially
when those who ask their aid can show as
good a balance sheet as the Kansas Man
agers. St. Louis is on the natural route
from New York to the llocky Mountains
and San Francisco. It is the metropolis of
the mighty Valley ol the Mississippi; and
the extension of this road is a new and im
portant step in tho great highway between
•St. Louis and San Francisco. The l uion
Pacific (Omaha) Road has as much business
as it can manage; and we have grave doubts
whether it will bo able to keep open a
through route amid the midwinter snow and
ice of the Sierra N'avadas. A through road
must finally traverse the warm countries of
New Mexico and Arizona, aloDg the thirty
fifth parallel or below it. General Palmer
has surveyed a route where snow rarely falls
—every mile of which opens rich mining*! e
posits. It embraces the oldest towns on the
continent. The country demands such a
road, and this extension is a step toward
It is interesting to note the progress of a
railway which draw - its business from a
country ten years ago conceded to the buffalo
and the aborigines. In April, the Kansas
Road earned, in gross income, $217,914 49,
of which $93,291 61 were balanced by ex
penses, leaving a net profit ol $124,622 88.
In May, the earnings were $222,163 46; the
expenses $107,987 77, leaving a profit of
$114,173 69. Two months' aggregate,
$238,798 37. There are few roads in our
older and riper States that would not be
content with as good a result. But the
truth is, these new countries have much
growth in them. We have but to touch
our Western prairies and hills with the iron
wand, and cities spring up, towns cluster
along the streams and highways, and broad
plains blossom with wheat, corirand barley;
school-houses and churches take the place of
the block-house and the fort, aud the great
rivers are disturbed by steam and water
whc-cl. So our civilization has marched
over the prairies, is advancing over the
plains, and in a few months we shall have
the vast treasures of Colorado and the gold
countries under contribution. The Presi
dent, ia his last Inaugural, pointed to these
hills as the "strong box," whose treasures
would pay the National debt. This railroad
is the key to open it. We therefore look
with pleasure upon this effort of private
citizens to carry another road to the Paeific.
We must have at least three railways across
the continent. We must enable the North
ern and Southern and Middle States re
spectively to reach the furthest West by the
most convenient way. Wo look upon the
State of Kansas with an interest not far re
moved from affection. This child of tears,
and blood and agony, now marches to the
dignity and grandeur of an empire, and well
deserves the proud, fond name of "the
Massachusetts of the West." To this road
she owes much of her prosperity; and now,
that its owners propose to carry it to Denver,
and wed the Rocky Mountains to the
Mississippi \ alley, we hail them as men
doing great National service, and earnestly
hope they will receive from our people
prompt and earnest support. The loan they
offer is certainly a good one. It yields high
interest in gold, has many years to run, is
secured by largo grants of land and a
profitable railway, and is endorsed by men
whose word gives it the force of an irre
fragable guarantee.— Xtw York Tribune.
THE REI'UDIATOUS. —The nomination of
Repudiation Pendleton in Ohio reveals the
meaning of Rosecrans oracular utterance
about his family and creditors. He was ev
idently afraid his salary would not be paid.
If Rosecrans showed so much caution
that he would not trust the Democracy,
even bearing gifts, would it not be prudent
for all holders of national currency or United
States bonds to vote agaiust Pendleton, or
any otber Democratic candidate ?
A corollary reflection for Pennsylvania!
It is not known that Asa Packer holds a
single I. nited States security. Certain it is
that he did not lend the Government a dol

keeps a grocery -tort at No. 'JB Brook street,
had fifteen dollars stolen from his tnonoy
drawer on Tuesday evening last, \oung
Falvey was suspected of the theft, and, on
Thursday, his father very comnaendably took
him to the polite station and placed him in
the hands of the officer. Alter Jeremiah
was locked in his cell, he was questioned by
the officer, and confessed to having stolen
the money, lie said ho bad hidden himself
in the store over the evening mentioned, and
after it wa. cL. oi : r the night took the
money and went and hid it in 31 r. Salisbury's
ile was not only willing hut anxious to go
and find the money, and plead that an officer
might go with him f'or that purpose. De
tective Swan and the Chief ot Police finally
yielded to the boy's wishes, and went with
him to the coal yard. Arrived there, Jere
miah led Detcciive Swan out to the end of
one of the elevated shoots, u.-i d in discharg
ing coal. There they found a hole just large
enough to allow the young sharper to craw!
through. He said the money was in this
hole, aud the officer, not suspecting the
youth was playing any games upon him to
escape, directed him to "go in."
lie did go in. and came out at the "large
end of the horn.'' Officer Swan heard some
thing drop on the ground below, and infer
red directly what the youngster was at. He
wouldn't be fooled in that way, and so he
immediately dropped, not through the hole,
but over the side of the shoot, lie found
to his surprise that he and Jeremiah had
cone to very difierent places. lie was iD
the bottom of a coal bin, and nobody within
hearing to help him out.
Ho succeeded in clambering up the side
of the bin, without injury, except to his
clothes, in which, when lie cauio out he
might have been mistaken for a coal heaver.
When lie teached the ground Jeremiah had
been gone f'or some time, and the officers
were compelled to return without him, or
the money, which they firmly believed was
not in the hole. Mr. Falvey, senior, works
in the yard, and the Loy in playing there
had become acquainted with ail its mysteri
ous passages and means of escape. A boy of
his smartness ought to be engaged in some
thing better than stealing.— Providence
Every eating house visitor of this city and
other leading cities of the Union has doubt
less noticed a small tumbler of wooden tooth
picks upon the counter of the cashier, for
the use of customers. Those toothpicks are
a good feature of the present day. The
wooden toothpicks have to a considerable
extent superseded the gold, horn, ivory and
other articles of the kind formerly in use.
Their manufacture is carried on by but one
establishment, which has been ia operation
four years. It is near Boston, and employs
thirty hands of both sexes. The machinery
has been patented, and is propelled by water
power. The woods used are maple and
willow. The agency is solely in Boston,
and ail purchases for use elsewhere must be
made there. The toothpicks are packed in
paste-board boxes of two sizes. One box is
three inches long, by two wide and one
deep. It contains three hundred, and sells
i'or six cents. The other encloses twenty
five hundred, and is five inches long, three
wide and three deep. The boxes are packed
in wooden cases for shipment, or retailed in
tho city singly by the carriers. The sales
are qnite large, and amount at times to for
ty and fifty cases a day, each containing one
hundred thousand toothpicks. The aggre
gate number sold, therefore, amounts in
that period to four or fivo millions.
MOKAIONISM, at Salt Lake, is threatened
from a new quarter. Two sons of Joseph
Smith, the first "prophet" of the sect, have
made their appearance in Utah, boldly
preaching the true doctrine to the Saints.
This branch of the church, mustering some
45,000 members in the western States, re
pudiates polygamy and discards the leader
ship of Brizbam Voting. This advent of
the Smiths has already created great inter

THE Joint Committee of Congress on Re

number of ladies and friends are in Chicago,
on their way to San Francisco, where they
propose investigating tho workiugs of the
revenue system, and to detect if any smug
gling is going on in that section. The party
appears to have resolved itself into quite a
respectable excursion, just having enough
governmental authority to secure attention
while on the journey. However, they pay
their own expenses, and who will complain
of their combining pleasure with business?

People often complain of Bedford prices being
higher than elsewhere, and doubtlese true to some

have had to pay for others goods, with an addi
