THE E.E120 DEAD.—Lieut. Gen. Win
field Scott died, at West Point, Now
York, on Tuesday morning last, May
29th. His funeral took place on Fri
day, and was attended by a large
number of military and naval officers,
and delegations from Congress. Gen.
Scott was nearly eighty years of ago.
ELIE FENIANS ADVANCING.—The Fe-
Mans, about whoin so much has been
said and written of late concerning the
folly of their gigantic movement
against Britain, have finally made a
show of fight. A Fenian force under
command of Col. O'Neill, formerly con
nected with the 16th Regiment U. S.
Regulars, landed on the Canadian side
and captured Fort Erie. Reinforce
ments aro following after, and several
skirmishes hate occurred in which the
British havo been worsted. When the
Canadians got fully awakened to the.
issue, it is thought the progress of the
Fenians will bo changed to their ma
terial injury. The United States for ,
ces, under command of General Meade,
have orders from Gen. Grant to pre
vent hostile expeditions leaving the
United States, and to save property
from destruction by mobs. • Gov. Fen
ton, of New York, will issue a procla
mation calling out twelve regiments of
militia to be sent to the frontier.
m,,The Republicans of Bradford
county organized a Johnson Union
Club in Towanda a few days since.—
Some of the most prominent Republi
cans are at the head of• the organiza
tion. Wihnot's strong district does
not think Johnson a traitor. Similar
.being organized in
other strong Republican counties.—
No wonder Congressmen are getting
weak in the knees. Forney and his
like have been driving the party to de
struction. A free people have bceu
thinking and are now beginning to
act. The loyal disposed people of the
North want peace and a Union of the
States and the people.
HONESTY IN THE FAR, WEST.—The
people who go far to find money are
not always the most scrupulous as to
the manner in which they got it, and
we need not be surprised to find that
in the mineral regions of our great
western domain there should be found
rogues in office as well as in the more
mature communities of the Atlantic
border. The subjoined item from a
western cotemporary will serve to
show that there is no surplus honesty
among the office holders of Nevada :
The grand jury of Douglas county,
in Nevada, have presented the county
treasurer as wholly incompetent to
the discharge of his duties, not know
ing how much money he has on hand,
nor how much he ought to have; the
jury finds that the District Attorney
refuses to do hisduty toward criminals;
the jdry presentS the judge for mis
conduct and bad behavior, and also
appoints three taxpayers to watch the
zi-31rs. -Cobb, the notorious pardon
broker, carries a dead latch key to the
President's private audience room, and
is in the habit of passing into and out
of the apartment in the presence of
waiting congressmen, ministers of for
eign nations, citizens and soldiers.—
Is it possible that there are men in
Harrishitrg old enough to vote who are
so stupid as to believe such au asser
tion as this? Those who invent lies
which have some show of probability
about them may get credit for shrewd
ness, but - when the editor of a newspa
per makes an asseveration which none
but an idiot will believe, it is manifest
that he presumes upon a vast amount
of credulity in his readers, or that ho
has very little brains himself. The
leaders of the radical factiOn should en
gage men to do their lying who will
have sense enough to know that a lio
whicir nobody believes can do their
party no good.
/ler The definitive action of the Pre
sident in refusing to grant a pardon to
the pirate Semmes, will be likely to
shock the sensibilities of the Southern
admirers both of tho President and the
aspirant for judicial honors in Mobile.
Semmes was recently elected to a local
judgeship in that city, and he needed
only the President's permission to
commence drawing the salary. This
the President has been hard hearted
enough to deny, and the applicant is
said to have - left Washington with mo
dified views on a variety of questions,
and on the dispensation of clemency
WHO DO THEY TALIC TO ?—One of our
radical cotemporitries tells its xeaders
that "rho President is piotting.for the
escape of .Toff. Davis." Every school
boy knows that with a scratch of the
pen the President of the United States
can deliver any State prisoner from
his bonds, and - it is presuming that the
readers of radical papers are exceed
ingly ignorant to suppose that they do
rot know this. There is au immense
amount of stupidity in those Who print
such stuff, and it is possible that they
may find it out. some day.
WASHINGTON', May 29
THE riNA T. PLAN.
The Senatorial caucus hold its rourth
meeting to-day and finally agreed to a
series of amendments to the constitu
tional amendment pending in the Sen
ate, which it is claimed are acceptable
to nearly all of the. Senators of the
body. It was subsequently brought
before the Senate and partially voted
on. The third section of the amend
ment which passed the House, disfran
chising all who voluntarily aided the
rebellion, was stricken out by unani
mous vote. The rest of the amend
ment, which refers chiefly to the basis
of representation was laid aside for ac
tion to-morrow, It is believed that
the plan as amended will be passed
through the Senate with but little (lo
bate, and sent to the Ilouse for its con
currence, where it is claimed, it will
also be voted,on without debate, and
being agreed to- will be sent to the
various State Legislatures for ratifica
tion. There is a general disposition to
dispose of the matter without further
NEW rnEETEirAN's BUREAU 1;1;
The House to-ciy passed by a strict
ly party vote the new Freedmen's
Bureau Bill. A good many amend
ments were added, which strips the
bill of many of the objectionable feat
ures raised against the old bill by the
President in his veto message. It nose
provides for continuing the present
freedmen's bureau in force for two in
stead of three years as originally re
ported, and authorizes the appointment
of two additional assistant commission
ers; all appointments to be made of ,
persons who have served in the armies.
No person shall be deemed destitute,
suffering and dependent upon the Gov
ernment for support within the mean
ing of this act NVIIO is able to find em
ployment, and could by proper indus
try or exertion avoid such destitution,
suffering or dependence. For the pur
pose of rendering this bureau self-sup
porting, and in the place of lands here
tofore assigned • to freedmen, and then
afterwards withdrawn from the control
of the bureau the President is required
to reserve from sale or settlement un
der the homestead or exemption laws,
and assign for the use of freedmen and
loyal refugees, male or female,"unoceu
pied public lands in Florida, Mississip
pi, Alabama, Louisiana and Arkansas,
not exceeding in all three millions of
acres of Government land. Whenever
the former owners of land, occupied
under General Sherman's field order, I
dated at Savannah, January sixteenth,
eighteen hundred and sixty-five, shall
apply for restoration of said lands, and
the commissioner shall refuse to sur
render the same, the owners may ap
ply in civil courts for restitution. The
bill further guarantees civil rights to
all persons in the, States.
Mon learn slowly not to be entirely
confident of what is going to happen,
especially in the political world. An
instance in point is brought out by
what Col. Forney said of the Congres
sional Plan, in his chronicle the day
after the report was made, and by
what be said in his Press two days ago.
For the sake of the illustration and the
train of thought they are calculated to
provoke, we make the quotations :
From the Chronicle,:
It will be a herculean task to assail,
with success, the remedy of the Con
gressional Committee. The measure
being a happy blending of the best
thoughts of statesmen who agree on
general principles, (including Prasident
Johnson's iterated propcisitions,)l ittle
effective opposition need he looked for
from either of these quarters.
From the Press :
The result of the consultation among
the Union Senators, which has been
long and patient, has not transpired.
It is only known that the attendance
was large, the - discussion harmonious,
and the conclusions of the majority ac
cepted as binding upon all. The wis
dom of this course is vindicated by
every day's experience.
It remains only to be noted, that the
result of the "consultation" was the
expunging of the "vital section" of the
"remedy of the Congressional Commit
tee." If "every day's experience"
would exert on everybody the happy
effects it appears in this instance to
have exerted on "the Union Senators"
and on Col. Forney, the prospect
would indeed be hopeful.—Pittsburgh
C 0712 menial, May -31.
The Republican Senators, after calm
And frequent deliberation among them
solves, have agreed upon what is ex
pected to go through as the result of
all the thinking, speakin g , threats,suc
casscs and failures of the past six
months on the question•of Restoration.
The third section of the Congressional
Plan has been stricken out and for it
another has been substituted. When
the original report passed the House,
Mr. Stevens said the third section was
the sum of it all, and that if it was
stricken out the Plan would be worth
less. It has been stricken out, the
Union Senators being unanimous for
it. In doing so, they virtually adop
ted the suggestion of Mr. Stanton. But
Mr. Stevens has meantime brought
forward in the House another plan—
one of his own, and on his-own hook.
It is said, howev,or, that the House
will take the Senate's modification and
not follow Mr. Stevens.—Pittsburgh
Commercial, 1.1 - ay 31.
May 31.—Senate.--The pending ques
tion was upon the adoption of the fol
lowing section as a substitute for the
one stricken out:

Tho Three Sided Question.
The people of the United States
have an important problem before them
feu• solution. It comes logically as a
consequence of one which they have
already solved. The antecedent ques
tion was this, Shall the States of the
Federal Union bo separated and form
two distinct governmehts ? It was ab
ruptly submitted to•the people by the
conspirators who had pledso,l them
selves to the affirmative, it was ar
gued for four years with the sharpest
and solidest of logic, and it was deci
ded emphatically in the negative. The
'vomit, question is, Shall the States
that after attempting secession, have
submitted to this irrovereibbe decision,
be restored to their functions in the
Union corresponding, with their noini
al and normal connection with it 't
On this question. three dots of opin
ions are entertained. There may bo
more, but the shape of public measures
and the drift of speech indicate three
as embracing the essential conditions
of the problem. Wo name, first, the
opinion that the States which have
been concerned in the attempt at se
cession should be restored, and that as
speedily as practicable, under such
conditions and guarantees as will ren
der it sale and advantageous to the
national interest. Second, the opinion
that they should be at once restored,
on their ces,sation of armed resistance
to the government, without further
conditions. And, third, the opinion
that they should be regarded as con
quered provinces, and held under ter
ritorial jurisdiction until formally ad
mitted like now States.
The number of persons holding eith
er of these last two opinions is, com
paratively, small, unless we embrace
those who have been implicated in the
rebellion. Of these, some entertain
such hostile passions against tho Gov
ernment as not to desire a restoration
that will place them under allegiance
to it, and seine, while submitting to
the decision of the war, desire to evade
as far as possible the condition which
it legitimately entails upon them. But
besides rebels, there are others who
embrace these opinions. Those who
sympathised with them in their rebel
lion and laid the blame of the war on
other parties, stand most conspicuous
in opposition to the conditions deemed
necessary in the restoration of the se
ceded States to their functional rela
tions with the Union. It is not diffi
cult to perceive hovi selfish and party
considerations may suggest this course,
or how hopes of regaining power may
influence that faction of the broken
Democracy to desire that the anticipa
ted coalition with restored rebels may
be hampered as little as possible by
loyal conditions. And, further, there
are some whcise loyalty is not ques
tioned, who through passion or prover
fed sentiments appear little favorable
to restoration, since they encounter the
plans of others with opposition, and
load their own with impossible condi
tions, to such an extent as indicates a
wish to at least indefinitely delay it.
But the opinion of the President
and of Congress, and of the great ma
jority of the people, has been and is,
that the seceded States must be restor
ed. And, while there has been be-
L,OOll - , 00.r0.0 ana—th- pl,
some differen 6 ce about the methods and
conditions—and a like difference has
prevailed among the loyal people of
the country, they have been agreed on
this main point, that the restoration
should be under such conditions and
guarantees as will secure to the whole
country and all its population the bene
fits of a free republican government,
under the Federal compact. This has
been the aim steadily kept in view
through all the war. For its. attain
ment the tremendous sacrifices of life
and treasure were made by the loyal
people. The restoration is not to be
considered in the narrow and partial
aspect of a boon to the States immedi
ately concerned, but in the broad and
exalted character of a benefit to the
whole nation, and the conditions
should boar upon this grand design.
The prejudices, passions, and mere
personal or sectional interests of men
have no proper scope in this field, and
cannot be trusted to dictate terms of
restoration. If it be necessary and
just to disfranchise or to enfranchise
anew, more or' less, let it be done.
And if fit men are 'offered to represent
the States in the Union, and so to re
store the suspended line of normal con
nection between the States of the
Union, lot that be done too, and lot it
be responded to as forwarding the
grand object. .
Toward this point, as exhibited in
the first of the three opinions, the cur
rent of public sentiment and action ap
pears to be tending. With honest
agreement on the main object, honest
difference of views, as to methods of
procedure, will not oppose permanent
obstacles to progress, especially, while
there is also agreement that the meth
ods shall be such as shall save the re
public from detriment and secure to it
the benefits of onion. The embarrass
ments that have attended the process
for restoring the seceded States have
arisen chiefly from the intrusion of con
siderations less extensive than the
good of the nation. But in an inter
est. of such magnitude, mere personal
and party ends cannot be allowed to
supercode those of national importance,
and whether they originate with one
party or the other, whether they
spring from official or popular sOureeS,
the intelligent, loyal deliberate.judg-
Inca of the people will protect the
Union Which they have preserved.
That this is the direction in which the
current of opinion is flowing appears
sufficiently evident. And we therefore.e
look,for the solution of the great prob
lem according to the first, of the opin
ions specified in relation to it.—Pitts
Tun Academy of Music, University.

Amending the Constitution,
It is the fashion to call every alter
ation of "the supreme law" of our
great republic an amendment, and
every aspiring politician thinks him
self wise enough to amend the work of
the statesmen who formed our govern
ment. Heretofore it has been gener
ally conceded by intelligent men that
our Constitution funned the best Gov
ernment which has ever been devised.
That it secured more liberty to the
people, and enabled them to enjoy
more comfort and prosperity than
those of any ether country at any time
in the world's history have enjoyed,
only a few crazy fanatics on this side
of the Atlantic have denied, and it
might be supposed that sensible men
would be very cautious about underta
king to change the character of a gov
ernment which has been tried and
proved so beneficial to the country ;
but wo find in our day that tho most
brainless twadlors are ready to propose
amendments to the Constitution, and
to show that they think themselves
wiser than Washington, Hamilton,
Sherman, Madison, Fittnltlin, &c., and
more able to form the fundamental
laws of a nation. It is universally ac
knowledged that tile convention which
framed the Federal Constitution con
tained minds of the highest order; and
the practical experience of the people
of country has satisfied them that wo
had "the best government in the
world," until insurrectionists and revo
lutionists undertook to destroy it.
Ono of the great principles of the
Constitution is that of amendunent,but
this is sorestricted as to rrewent alter
ation unless a very large majority of
the States are willing to consent to it.
The very idea of a constitution is that
of an organic law which may not he al
tered if there be any doubts as to the pro
priety of the proposed alteration. In this
our govern moot differs very material
ly from that of England. Thera is no
real restriction upon the power of par
liament, but our Federal Constitution
was intended to give only limited and
well defined power, of legislation to a
general Congress, to enable it to do
fir tho whole country what the indi
vidual States could not so well do, and
to I,mve to the States the direction of
all local matters,
and such things as
could be as well done by State govern
ments as by a central one..
The framers of the Constitution wore
as well aware of the danger of centrali
zation as they were of the inconveni
ences of a. feeble union, and they so
balanced the powers of the Federal
government as to plevont the absorp
tion of supreme power by any one de
partment of it, and they carefully de
fined the legislative powers of Con
gress, so as to prevent its absorbing
the power and authority of the State
governments. The• chief peculiarity of
our system of government is in its di
vision and circumscription of powers.
The Federal Government has no le
gal power but what is given by the
Constitution, and all other powers aro
"reserved to the State and to the peo
ple:" Not only are the powers of the
general government expressly limited,
but they are with great .precision di
vided between the legislative, execu
tive, and judiciary_ departments. The
experience - - of" - the World naS !MOW n
that a concentration of the power of a
great country has always resulted in
despotism, and it was to prevent such
result that the sages who founded
our republic so carefully restricted and
divided the powers of the general gov
A careful consideration of the char
acter of our government will convirice
any man ofjudgment that what the
radical faction which' controls Con
gress calls amendiny the Constitution
is in reality an effort to destroy its pe
culiar principles; to take away those
safeguards which were designed to pre
vent the conversion of our Federal re
public into some form of oligarchy or
monarchy. The Constitution•was de
signed to be a fundamental law, to
continue for ages, and to check the am
bitious designs of demagogues and fac
tionists who take advantage of tempo
rary excitements to accomplish their•
selfish objects. •
Under the Constitution, not chang
ed to suit the notions ofschoming poli
ticians, nor those of insane fanatics,
our fathers lived and prospered as no
other people have done; and prudent .
men must see that such an organic
law should not be changed in its most
vital features without cool and mature
deliberation.—Phila. Daily News.

RArtruartußa, Juno I.—The Supreme
Court has adjourned without having
announced their decision in the case
argued last week involving the consti
tutionality of tho act of Congress dis
franchising deserters, and it is not
likely that a decision will bo pronoun
ced until the mooting of the court at
the end of Juno.
The act of Assembly, which the
Governor hold awaiting the decision
of the court on the constitutionality of
the act of Congress, provides for rec

Adjutant General and to be furnished
to the clerks of the several Courts of
Quarter Sessions in this State, which,
as presented in the letter of the Attor
ney General to the Court before the
argument of the case, will require all

of great importance to persons marked
as deserters and who can procure evi
dence to give them the right of suffrage.
We learn officially that the Gover
