OF CI73IIII3FL.CND COUNTY
Death of Gen. Lewis Cass.
DETROIT, June 17. Gen. Lewis Cass
died in this city at 4 o'clock this morn
ing, aged SO years.
We are anxious to know how many
of the voters of the Union party of the
county are "Johnson men." Will his
friends give us their names by mail or
otherwise. We want to know who
have dared to think for themselves,
and who are willing to "face the
Who are Traitors Now?
We publish below a specimen of
Journal & American Copperheadism.
During the war, editors and speakers
who indulged in wholesale unjust de
nunoiations of President Lincoln were
denounced, and justly too, as traitors.
But Robert McDivitt and many other
unprincipled and unscrupulous politi
cians have forgotten what was copper
headism during the rebellion, and now
take precisely the same position the
leaders of the so-called Democratic
party did then. It is no excuse for
Robert to say he believes what ho
wiites. He knows better. He knows
that there is not a word of TRUTH in
the article from the beginning to the end.
He knows that there is no one act of
President Johnson on record that
would justify the assertion of such
wholesale falsehoods. The secret of
the Journal d American's opposition to
President Johnson is in the fact that
he was a true Democrat during the
war—and is a true Democrat still—
standing fair and square upon the
platform of the great Union party that
placed him and Mr. Lincoln in nomi
nation. We give the article, disgus
ting as the falsehoods are, that our
readers may know the true character
of the Journal & American. Read the
stuff—we copy from the last week's
"My POLTCY."--no test of loyalty
with the President is the support of
what he is very vain in calling "my
policy." This policy is nothing more
than the surrender of the country to
the scoundrels who headed and con
ducted the late rebellion. "My policy"
demands that malignant traitors, with
hands red and dripping with the blood
of Union soldiers, shall be admitted to
seats in Congress—that villains of this
class shall have the positions of trust
and profit at home and in foreign
countries, and above all that no law
ful penalty for the committal of trea
son shall be visited upon any traitor.
This is "my policy," and but for the
patriotism and firmness of Congress,
this would to-day be so fully and fa
tally fastened upon the country that
Jefferson Davis would be made Presi
dent, Lee Secretary of War, and other
rebels of like ilk, be raised to the other
positions now filled by loyal men. Lot
this policy be rammed down Andy
A. Poracr.—After six months con
tention'the majority in Congress at
last agreed upon "a policy" in the
shape of an amendment to the Constitu
tion. It is not what the extreme rad
icals wanted, but the President took a
firm position against their measures,
and the result is a more satisfactory
and reasonable policy than would have
been offered the country by Congress
bad ho been under the influence of
Stevens Sumner & Co. 'Universal
amnesty and universal suffrage" was
the platform Greeley, Forney, Stevens
& Co., were in favor of, but the Presi
dent and the people could not bo per
suaded to stand upon it. Stevens and
his worshipers die hard. They will
never forgive President Johnson for
remaining true to the principles and
platform of the party that elected him.
MIEN the President issued his proc
lamation against the Fenian raid on
Canada, Forney said he did right. Now
we see Forney is trying to - soap . the
Fenians by sympathizing with them
and finding fault with the President
for interfering with their arrangemen ts.
It is votes Forney is after, but we
think he will have a happy time con
verting the foreign vote over to his
radical notions, universal negro suff
rage, etc.,etc. We certainly would
have no bjections if the whole foreign
vote could be influenced to unite with
the Union party, but that it should be
east to carry out the peculiar notions
of the extreme radicals, we would
most respectfully protest, The change
would not pay the expenses.
Tim President is being bitterly de
nounced by the Fenians and the Radi
cals because he authorized the arrest
of all who should attempt a violation
of the neutrality law. The President
could do nothing else. Ile is required
by his i path of office to do just what ho
has done, and if he had not interferred
to prevent a violation of the law, he
would have been denounced by his
radical friends for neglect of duty. It
is not possible just now for the Presi
dent to please the soreheads.
WE wish it to be understood that wo
proscribe proeeriptionists. For twenty
years the Globe has been favored with
the Mercantile Appraiser's advertise
raent. This year we have not receiv
ed it. Robert McDivitt is the Apprai-
Ser. By whose authority does he act?
A PENNSYLVANIAN WANTED.—The
Cleveland Reread gives the following,
which we trust will reach the eye of
some friend of the departed soldier re
ferred to: "George Wilson, supposed
to'bo a resident of Pennsytvania, Was
enlisted •by Capt. Win. Kenna, of Co.
B, Bth Ohio Infantry, in Juno, 1801.
Just before the battle of Gettysburg
he gave the Captain 'a check for 860.
During that memorable engagement
Wilson was killed. The captain now
living in this city, has the check, and
saYs there is some back pay and bounty
due the soldier. Wilson once informed
a comrade, while on picket guard, that
.he was born in Pennsylvania ; that he
had been absent from home over six
years, and that his parerits did not
know anything relative to his where
abouts. Captain Kenna is desirous of
sending the check to his friends if the . f
can be found."
ENGLISII PAUPERISM.—The reports
of the Poor Law Board for England
and Wales for the month of March
show that 907,201 paupers were sup
ported in those countries at the close
of that month, and this is said to be a
very gratifying statement, being over
.five per cent. less than at the end of
the corresponding month of 1865, and
nearly eight per cent. less than the
number for the corresponding month
of 1564. This does not represent the
whole number of persons supported
during the mouth, but the number who
received aid upon the last day of the
month, and it shows that ono person
out of every twenty-three of the popu
lation is regularly supported by the
English and Welsh poor rates. A
more striking commentary upon the
labor systems of those countries can
not be found.

Release of Jeff. Davis-Vagary.
The Tribune of Monday says :
"It is reported from Washington that
a number of well-known gentlemen
stand ready to give bail for Jeff. Davis
in any required amonnt, but that tho
Government is disposed to release him,
if at all, upon his parole.''
Mr. Greely is ono the "well known
gentlemen" overflowing with sym
pathy for Jefferson Davis, and with
living zeal chasing up Judge Under
wood Lo offer "bail in any required
Jefferson Davis was the head and
front of a Rebellion, in the progress of
which a quarter of a million of our
eons fell, and for which the nation is
carrying a debt of over three thousand
millions of dollars. While Jefferson
Davis was in his glory at Richmond,
Union prisoners—soldiers— were dying
in Rebel prisons of "pestilence and
famine by thousands. Under the au
spices of Jefferson Davis, and with the
money of the Confederate government.,
agents were employed to introduce
contagious diseases into our cities.—
Under the same auspices, and with the
same money, Confederate agents in
Canada hatched conspiracies and raids
to rob our banks, murder our citizens,
burn our cities, and assassinate our,
President. These multiform and atro
cious crimes were approved by Jeffer
son Davis. Ile has never oven denied
his responsibility or complicity in them.
When any of the guilty agents were
arrested they produced a commission
from Jefferson Davis.
When this traitor in-chief was arrest
ed, outraged humanity demanded his
trial and punishment. But the Tribune
objected ! Mr.L-reeley was opposed
to the "death penalty." Mr. Greeley
is a philanthropist! Mr. Greeley's
sympathies warm to the man who
struck a blow at the life of the reputr
lie; who deluged our. country in blood;
who sanctioned piracy, arson, and as
sassination ! This craven, white-feath
ered spirit, from influential sources,
occasioned delay, and delays end in a
denial of justice. Jeff Davis should
have been promptly tried, convicted
and sentenced, after which, if the Pres
ident had commuted the punishment
on condition of his leaving the country
forever, we should have boon rid of a
had subject. And now, while Davis is
living upon the fat of the land in For
tress Monroe, Mr. Greeley rushes to
Washington to.offer .bail, 60 that not
even punishment of the mildest char
acter should be inflicted upon a man
whose ,head in any other country,
would have come off for any one of his
many treasons. •
It is a curious, if not an instructive
fact, iii the - history of the Rebellion,
that while Chief Justice Chase refuses
to try, and Mr. Greeley objects to the
punishment of the leading representa
tive traitor, both refuse to restore the
followers of Rebel leaders who desire
to return to their allegiance, 'to their
rights and privileges; and both per
sist, after peace has been proclaimed,
in lceeping the Union divided !

that. all Congress can do is to make up
an issue for the nest election. The

with Congress over Jeff. DaviA..
