THE TWENTIETH CORPS.
The Carlisle Volunterr says that all
the officers of the late 20th Corps, except
Geary, ( who commanded thud )
endorse and support the restoration poli
cy of President Johnson. Gen, Slocum,
its heroic commander, Gen. Williams,
of the Ist Division, Gen Ward, of the 3,1
Division, anA.Gen Rousseau, of the 4th
Division, ith 'declare that the war was
rota failure, that the rebellion issuppress
ed, that peace reigns, and that the South
ern States are now within the Union.
They all sign the call for the Soldiers'
Convention, to assemble at Cleveland on
the 17th day of September, to endorse
the President. Geary, we repeat, is the
only officer of the late 20th Corps now
found in the disunion ranks; he is the
only black sheep of the Corps. The 20th
was a gallant Corps, and its commander,
the brave Slocum, was a most gallant
man. What a shame it is that Geary,
one of its officers, is now found in com
pany with traitors like Stevens and For
ney and their compeers in crime. Shame

A NEW PAIITY.
General Geary, In his speech In Perry
county, a few days ago, went into a
learned explanation of the word Radical.
After tremendous labor his brain brought
forth the following. He said :
"My friends, we are denounced as
Radicals. Now, my friends, most of you
are plain, unpretending farmers, and
may not understand what the word radi
cal means. Itiv farmer friends, It is de
rived from the Latin word radieus which
means a root. My friends, as you all
know, it radish is a root. Therefore they
might just as well call us radishes as
How learned this was, and how apt the
General was in defining himself! We
take him at his word, and dub him the
Radish candidate for Governor.
Geary and Negro Suffrage.—General
Geary in his late speech at York, said:
"I have already said that I am In favor
of universal justice and freedom; and I
claim to be a sincere and earnest friend
of ALL men, in whatever clime or country,
without regard to caste or condition, who
are struggling for a higher • and nobler
state of moral, political and religious
freedom—and enlargement of their natu
ral and inalienable rights."
The right to vote is the only "higher
state of political freedom" which the
negro is struggling for. Geary Is there
fore in favor -of negro Rvffrage, but he
might have said it in fewer words.
bar The Washinton Examiner;piscor
ing Geary for calling the Democratic
soldiers "shysters and cowards, skulkers
and hospital bummers," says: "There
were a thousand men in the Harrisburg
Convention whom tile poltroon Who
skulked at Lookout Mountain would not
itve o:tit:we," Wt Intkieye tl44t.

Thaddeus Stevens was re-nominated
for Congress, by the Radicals of Lan
caster county, weekbefore last, and upon
accepting the nomination, he made a
speech, (rein which we make the follow
ing extinct :
"We have not yet done justice to the
oppressed nice. We have not gone us far
as the Emperor of Russia, when he order
ed the freedom of thousands of his op
pressed people and endowed them with
the right of citizenship. We have been
too much governed by our prejudice:l.

A STORY ON GEARY.
A gentleman, whose word may be im
plicitly believed, tells us the following
characteristic story on Geary, the "loyal"
candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania :
When Geary returned from his Kan-as
mission, he was,taken ill with a fever,
somewhere across the rivior, hut not far
from Steubenville. A physician was
'called, to whom Cleary said : "Doctor,
you know my life is-woith more than
those of all the farmers in the vicinity,
and so I beg that you will discontinue
your visits to other parties, and give
your whole attention exclusively to ow."
"My dear sir," replied the physician,
"the lives of those farmers areas precious
to them as yours is to you. I will give
you the attention you need, but I cannot
neglect the good friends who have ent rnst
ed their health to my care. I will do the
best I cart for all."
Some years afterward, the doctor WaS
telling the story, and added: "Now it
has turned out that all of those farmers
whose lives were of so little value in the
estimation of Geary, have honestly and
faithfully paid me their bills, but that
of the high priced Governor remains un
settled to this day 1"
No physician should vote for Geary un
til he pays that bill, and no farmer should
vote foi hint under any circumstances.—
Grrec Jito u Democrat.
There is another little story, that Cleary
will not like to hear about, which has a
long unpaid bill connected with it—
which will be laidlefore the public at the
right time. The bill was contracted a
good ninny years ago, with a prominent
lawyer in this State, who helped the Rad
ish candidate out of a bad scrape. The
fee remained unpaid until since he was
nominated for Governor, when a threat
of exposure had the effect to bring the
lawyer a cheek for one hundred dollars.
Geary will understand the ease perfectly.
How will lie like _the whole thing expos
ed ? We know about it. —Doylestown
A GEARY HERO.
The malignant assaults of the Harris
burg Telegraph and other Radical jour
nals upon the most_prominent members
of the Clymer Soldiers' Convention have
led to the Institution of an inquiry Into
the military character of the chief actors
in the Geary Soldiers' Convention at
Pittsburg. The result is by no means
flattering to the Geary men. It has been
found that the President of their Soldiers'
Convention (Joshua T. Owen) was so
bad a soldier that the gallant General
Sumner ordered him to be tried by court
martial; and this court, which was pre
sided over by that brave and accomplish
ed officer, General Hancock, found him
guilty of two out of the three charges
preferred against him, and sentenced him
" to be dismissed from the service of the

ponents the propriety of refraining from
assaults upon the gallant soldiers who
participated in the Clymer Convention
at Harrisburg. But the Radical paners,
always reckless and unscrupulous, have
been rendered desperate by the dismal
prospect before them. 'They rush blindly
