The Gubernatorial campaign in Penn
sylvania setts formally opened by the
Democracy at Reading on Wednesday
bud. Notwithstanding the heat, and
the -busy season for the farmers, the
turn-out was immense.. TWENTY-FIVE
THOUSAND is rather below than above
the mark. It is estimated that twenty
thousand people were carried there over
the railroads, and that more than five
thousand went in their own conveyances.
The city was perfectly alive with the en
thusiastic Democracy. Delegations num
bering thousands, bearing banners and
flags, with appropriate mottoes and
watchwords, poured, in, cheering with
lusty lung; while from those who lined
the sidewalks and filled every window
and available stand-point, a glad shout of
greeting and welcome , went up. The
many magnificent bands\of music which
necOmpanied the differeurdelegations
mingled their shrill notes the'musie
of rejoicing human voices, and a cannon
presented to the Keystone Club of Phila
delphia by the lamented Douglas, added
its thunders to aid In the general rejoi
cing of the many thousands of Democrats
assembled in the home of their chosen
standard bearer, the gallant and gifted
son of "Old Burks," Hiester Clymer.
About 2 o'clock the meeting was or
ganized at the main stand. Hon. Win.
A. Wallace, Chairman of the State Ceti
tml Committee, delivered a short but
able address, at the , ,conclusion of which
Hon. Richard Vaux, of Philadelphia,
was chosen chairman of the Convention.
Ou taking the chair, he made an 4 earnest
and telling speech, and was followed by
Hon. Hiester Clymer, in one of his al
ways happy efforts, which brought out
frequent bursts of applause. We expect
to publish it next week. Hon. Mont
gomery Blair then took the stand, and
in a speech of some
_length, thoroughly
exposed the infamous doings and dan
gerous_ designs of the Radicals. He de
clared that they meant another chid war,
If need be, to cam; out their negro and
disunion plans. He was greeted with
warm applause, as was Hon. George H.
Pendleton, of Ohio, who also delivered
an able and stirring speech. There were
twenty or more speeches made at the slx
or eight other stands occupied ut the
same tithe along Penn street, which we
have neither time or space to notice. -,
merles of resolutions was offered, an( '
adopted with cheers, at the main stand,
which we will give in our next.
The masses:are rising In their might.
The first_great wave of pophlar emotioia
was feit•at Reading on Wednesday, and
the tido will sweep on until the election
in October, when the Radicabi will be
completely overwhelmed and buried be
neath the righteous indignation and the
atienging scorn of the thoughtful voters
of this great Commonwealth. •
There is a break in the Cabinet. Den
nison, Postmaster General, and Speed,
_General, have resigned, and
Harlan will soon follow suit. The coun
try-can easily dispense with the services
of these gentlemen—and could do with
out Stanton too.
The President has nominated Hon. A.
W. Randall, of Wisconsin, as Postmaster
General; and lion. Henry J. Stansbury,
of Ohio, as-Attorney General.
War The Democratic Delegate Election s
in this county will take place on Satur
day neat, and the County Convention on
Monday. It is to be hoped that the dif
ferent districts will-Aend their best men
as delegates, and that the strongest ticket
possible will be the result. 'rile - present
fanatical party must be beaten and swept
outof exktence. Until that is done there
will be no peace for the country, and no
prosperity for the people.

On the 7th day of January, MK Mn
Bogeys, Democrat, of %Sy Jersey, its the
House of Representatives of the United
States, offered resolutions, declaring, that
a State or States, "whenever they shall de
sire to return to the Union, and obey Me
Congintion of the United States and laws
in pursuance thereof, have a right to come
back, their laws and acts of secession being
unconstitutional and void; that we are for
the most united, determined, and vigorous
prosecution of the war, for the purpose of
enforcing the efilliirtitatiox of the United
States and a restoration of the Union un

What does this vote mean? What does
It assert? Wbat does it defend? It
means that the Republicans in Congress,
and the radical portion of the constituen
cy they represent, were in 1864, as they
are in 1866, and will ever be, opposed to
the return of any of the rebellious States
to the Union, no matter how submissive
and repentant they may be; It asserts,
that they, (the rebellious states) have no
right to come back, although we lavished
millions of treasure and piled up whole
lietacombe of lives to compel them to
come back ; it defends a war, which, by
their votes, they declared should not be
prosecuted for the enforcement of the

The President, on Tuesday, retirned
to the House of Representatives the bill
extending the Freedmen's Bureau; with
his objections thereto o , He considers it
Inconsistent with the welfare of the boun
try, and liable to bhe same oonstitutional
objections that be made to a similar
measure a few months ago. He adheres
to the principles set forth in that message,
and reaffirms the position then taken.
After the message had been read, the
question was taken upon the bill, (the
objections of the President to the contra
ry, notwithstanding,) and it passed by
a vote of 103 to 33. Three Republicans
(Raymond of New York, Washburne of
Indiana, and Ku . ykenda ll of Illinois)
voted in the negative. The action of the
House was communicated to the Senate,
and the bill was also passed by that body
by the requisite two-third vote, and like
the Civil_ Rights Bill it has become a law.
It will be imposiible for the Radicals to
carry the heavy load they are heaping on
their shoulders, and a cOnsclousness of
impending defeat seems to have made
them utterly reckless.
Y i WHITE NEN, AiltiltSEl
When Republican papers publish the
ammatory speeches of, negroes—
though it be "by request"—white men
should open their eyes to The real designs
of the Republican party. These Radicals
mean to make use of the negroes in any
and every shape 'which their determpt
tion to hold power may suggest. Lei the
friends of 'a white Government arouse,
and beat back-the btaelc wave with which
the Radicals are trying to engulf the
nation. There is no time to be lost.—
All who oppose the degradation of our
race to the level of the negro, must Com
bine at once, and at the polls overwhelm
Radicalism and its candidates.
ser The New , York World says that
there were sixty deaths from sunstroke
in that city on Tuesday, and one hundred
and fifty-eight burial permits were issued,
eighty of which were made out and re
corded as "burial permits for persons
deceased after short diarrhceal disease."
The_ Herald says : There were five
cases reported to be cholera iii the city
yesterday, (Monday.) - Four of the pa
tients died, and the other, it seems, was
only afflicted with the cholera morbus.
Nine cases were reported in Brooklyn.—
The mortuary' report for the past week
shows the number of deaths by cholera
in New York to have been eleven.
The New 'York Commercial Advertiacr
states that cholera is raging in certain
parts of that city. It also asserts that.
the facts relative to the number of
cases on Hart's Island are deemed so ap
palling that publicity is denied. Surgeon
Callioun of that post has died of the chol
era, and a number of physicians have
been sent to Hart's and Governor's Is
lands. Several additional eases of chol
era were reported in the city of New
York on Friday.

on Wednesday last, voted Mr. Coffroth

(Wilt fabric reared by the blood of our
Revolutionary fathers,
What did the soldiers of the Union ar
my fight for? A Republican newspaper '
asks this question, and the Lancaster
Intelligence,. thus answers it:
when the flag, the symbol of the Union
as formed by our fathers uncles the Con
stitution, was fired upon at Sumter, thou
sands of brave men rushed to arms. For
what? Was it to free the negroes? Let
the Radical Disunionists tell the return
ed veterans that, if they dare.
*hen President Lincoln issued his
proclamation freeing the slaves, what
was the ground on which he professed to,
stand ? Was not the act justified because
it was believed the soldiers fought for the
restoration of the Union under the Con
stitution. That was the one great, grand,'
holy object which they kept singly in
view. They did not fight to conquer
equal rights for the negro, and in the
coaling elections they will show their
scorn of that political party which would
delay the restoration of the Union until
the odious conditions of negro4suffrage
and negro equality are forced upon in
unwilling people. The soldiers read and
think for themselves now, and they can
not fail to see that the party which nom
inated Geary is unequivocally committed
to all the infamous schemes of the }Unli
cols in Congress. Wh tever the soldiers
May think of Geary' military record,
they cannot endors his political posi
tion. They cannot and will not vote
with any party which makes the Union
for which they fought subordinate to ne
gro equality. The soldiers fought for the
Union, not for the negro; and they will
vote as they shot.

his way. No power to "arrest" the man
who differed with him. No one to search
for him his neighbor's house. •No in

lliirThe question is nbt was Geary a
good soldier, but is he a proper man to be
elected Governor of Pennsylvania? If
he stands on the Radical platform, he is
opposed to the restoration of the Union
and In favor of negro equality. No true
soldier can vote for such a man. It Is
the duty of every true friend of his coun
try to vote against him.
krGen. Banks, Representative In the
rump Congress from Massachusetts, de
clared the other day that It is the inten
tion of the Republican party to impose
negro suffrage upon the whole country.
He said the only reason the matter is de

Geary is in favor of negro , suffrage and

it, Let every voter remember that.

FIRE.—We learn with much regret
that the dwelling of John Bushman, Esq.,
on the York Turnpike, three miles from

Tuesday morning last, about 9 o'clock.
The fire originated from the cook stove,
In a small building adjoining the house.
Although the neighbors assembled as
hurriedly as possible, it was found out of
the question to save the house, and they
directed their efforts to getting out the
furniture—but in this were only partially
successful. We suppose Mr. Bushman's
loss, to be between $1,500 and $2,000
upon -- which there was a partial insur-

The Kansas City (Mo.) Commercial,
after recording the arrest of a Methodist
preacher for not taking the "test oath,"
"We learn that considerable excite
ment was Drought 'about at Cape Girar
deau, by the repetition of an arrest of
some of the Sisters of Charity, or nuns,
attached, as teachers, to the convent, or
a Catholic academy at that point, for
their not taking the oath .prescribed by
the new constitution. The excitement
is reported as to have been• so great
against this outrage, perpetrated in the
name of "law," against a highly merito
rious, benevolent and religious order—
Christian, self-sacrificing women at that
—that those who had them in charge as
malefactors were compelled to desist in
the discharge of a "radical duty," at war
with every delicate and decorous instinct
we habitually practice towards the sex.
The matter was compromised by these
"offenders against the new constitution"
giving bond for their appearance at the
"next Circuit Court of Cape Girardeau
county," to answer to the criminality of
the offence of acting in the capacity of
teachers without taking the convention
oath. Is there any other State in this
country, even under the radical rule, the
law of which subjects religious women
and men to the indignities of an arrest
and imprisonment, in the discharge of
their religious and business avocations?
We believe not."
IM.Major General Thomas has report
ed to General Grant that the members
of the House of Delegates in Tennessee
were behaving in a refractory manner by
absenting- themselves and refusing, at
the call of Governor Brownlow, to attend
so as to form a quorum of the House that
the Constitutional ainendipent might
be passed. As Governor Brownlow
cannot compel their _attendance in ac

to General Thomas for military as
sistance. General Thonias accordingly
writes to General Grant asking whether
such military aid shall be. furnished.
In reply, Secretary Stanton notifies
General Thomas that the matter is not
one that calls for military interference ;
that the administration of the laws and

There can be nothing so certain to cure a severe
cold, whether It be settled in the head or breast,
theinags or bowels, its Railway's Ready R diet—
only It"Is too cheap for some people. It gives ease
in a few minutes. It disposes of the pain directly.
It producas perspiration ; and acting energetimily
upon the stomach, the bladder, the skin, ,t:.••. ' rap
idly throws off all the morbid matter produced by
the derangement of the system, leaving the recu
perative powersof nature to assert their authority,
and restore the Runt:rex to perfect health. But
then the remedy is so cheap. When you find that
you have "caught a cold," 144 it is called, do not
put off the use ut medicine until the slluple "cold"
has degenerated into a more serious thsonler.—
Attack the enemy at ()neer before he has had time
to select his ground, intreuch himself and erect
fortifications. When you have a pain in the back
and a dull headaelm; when your bones all feel as
if they bad been beaten and yottr skin as if much
bruised; when a lassitude overcomes you, as if
you di I not wish to move; when your appetite
fa les :Lamy, you 'olistantty sneeze or cough, and
you lest utterly unable to persuade yourself to go
to work; When in short you have a "bad cold," lay
out 59 cents for a bottle of Radwav's Ready Relief,
and in a day or night you may become well. if
you are asharne4 of being cured so cheaply send
fora doctor. He cannot, if he be a skillful practi
tioner, charge you less than five dollars, besides
the price of his pres,.ript low:. In a week or so he
may restore you to health. If you should happen,
on the eohtrary, to take one or two spoonfuls of
It ,ady Relief in half a tumbler ot sweetened water
going to bed, yoo would probably rise op a well
man In the morning. You would perspire the
cold entirely out of you. At any rate t wo or three
similar closes next day would certainly aissomplisli
