Maj. Gen. John W. Geary,
A New Volume.
This number commences the 22d
year•of the Globe since we have had
control of its columns. It has always
been an independent journal, and we
intend that it shall continue so, regard
less of denunciation from any quarter.
The many personal and political friends
who stand by us have our thanks, and
we hope they may prosper as we have
done. •OtIV enemies will always find
us "at honie" to receive them in the
same spirit we have always met them.
WO'llave friends to reward and we
may have enemies to punish. The
Globe is not for sale at any price.
Terms, $2 per fear, $1 for six months,
50 co. for throe months—in advance.
We have room for a' few more good
subscribers—none others need apply.
The Soldiers' League a Nuisance,
Since the first day of the organization
of the Soldiers League in this county
we have treated it with the - kindest
respect, but it has become, as conduc.
ted in this place, a political nuisance;
and calculated to do General Geary
and the Union party more harm than
good. The proceedings of the. meet
ings have been regularly published in
these columns without comment by us,
and the reader has not failed to notice
their littleness and disorganizing spirit.
The proceedings of the last meeting
which was bold in this place on Friday
last will be found in another column
and we ask a careful perusal of them.
There are three or four prominent
points in them, and we wish the read
er to remember that a majority of the
twenty-three soldiers in attendance
from three or four townships and this
borough adopted the resolutions as ex
pressing the sentiments of the soldiers
of the county.
Ist. Tho Le.iguo declares against
nominating faithful war-worn soldiers
for office even when their merits are
equal to the civilians offering.
2d. It declares in favor of a soldier
for Congress who has seen service in
the field and bears upon his body the
honorable sears of battle. That's all it
requires for a Congressman.
3d. The League elects several gen
tlemen honorary members of their
body who are out-and-out Andy John
sen men, and another who is an active
member of the so-called Democratic
party,and denies Andy Johnson honor
ary membership.
4th. The League calls upon the Chair
man of the State Committee to dis
place us as a member of the Committee
for this county and appoint "a reliable
member of the Union Republican Par
ty" to fill our place.
sth. The League after reading Andy
Johnson and our humble self out of an
organization we were never members
of, coolly Resolved that the friends of
Andy Johnson who are soldiers in good
standing,_ be permitted to become
members of the League.
What a jumble of inconsistencies
No wonder that several of the soldiers
were ashamed of the company they
were in.
We have not room to-day to expose
the managers who "run the machine"
to the injury of the Union party and
the prospects of General Geary.
When the Union Party of the Coun
ty in Convention assembled, shall de
clare that no Johnson man can be per
mitted to speak for or act with the
party, then, and not till then will we
resign our position as member of the
Union State Committee appointed by a
Union State Convention.
Plain Questions and we want Plain
Answers.—As the majority of the
League meeting held hero on Friday
last claim to speak the sentiments of
the Union soldiers of the county, aro
we to understand that they recognize
the Journal d American as their organ
and, endorse its assertion that all
friends of Andrew Johnson are "Cop
If they do not endorse the assertion
of' the Journal & American that all
Johnson men aro "Copperheads," why
did they not also take exceptions to
its course, and read it out?
• It all Johnson then are to be treated
as Copperheads by members of the
Soldiers League and the "Republican
Union Party," is it expected that Gen.
Geary will endorse their position=
andif he should, can he be elected?
.M-The Democratic County Con

Congressional Conferees, not in
structed, but they aro understood to
1,0 Ea. Mr. Pig's!-00 9 : of Johnstown, as
Andrew Johnson and the Covenant.
The Radicals aro. as persistent as
they are unscrupulous in their slander
ous pursuit of President Johnson. Un
able to truthfully combat the constitu
tional views entertained by tho Execu
tive, they resort to falsehood, and fill
the country with misrepresentation
respecting his purposes and his policy.
Among the latest of those slanders is
the statement that the President asks
for the instant admission only of the
authors of the rebellion, and that he
relies upon the recent traitors alone.
Every one will agree with the New
York Times that it is not easy to un
derstand how any ono can repeat such
an assertion as this directly in the
teeth of oPon and notorious facts.
President Johnson has over and over
again declared that loyal men, and Loy
al men only, from the Southern States
should be admitted into Congress. He
has urged the admission of the members
from Tennessee only because they were
loyal men, who had never had any
thing whatever to do with the Rebel
lion, and because they represent loyal
constitutencies. In everything ho has
said on the subject, in messages, proc
lamations, speeches and conversations,
ho has most distinctly and emphatic
ally declared that none but loyal men
from the Southern States ought to be
admitted, •that if a disloyal man should
gain admission, Congress had power
to expel him, and ought to do it. In
hie veto of the Freedman's Bureau
bill ho said expressly that every State
should be admitted to its share of leg
islation "When it presents itself; not
only in an attitude of loyalty and har
mony, but in the persons of represen
tatives whose loyalty cannot be question
ed under any existing constitutional or
legal test . 2 " And in his speech on the
22d ofFebruary, ho said, with equal
emphasis, "I am for the Union ; I am
for preserving all the States, and I am
for admitting into the counsels of the
nation all their representatives who
are unmistakably and unquestionably loy
al." And so again on the 18th of April
in his speech to the soldiers and sailors,
who called upon him after repeating
that he thought the States of the Union
were entitled to representation, went
on to state with great clearness and
force precisely what ho meant by this.
Hero is an extract from that speech:
"And when we say admit represen
tatives, what do we mean 1 Wo mean
representation in the constitutional
and law abiding souse, as wo intended
at the beginning, of the Government.
The Constitutiond cams mexpress
terms, that each House, the' Sen.
at and the House, each acting for
itself shall be the judge of the returns,
elections and qualifications of its own
members. It ib for each House to set
tle that question under the Constitu
tion and under the solemn sanction of
an oath. And can we believe that
either House would admit any mem
ber into its body to participate in the
legislation of the country who was not
qualified and fit to sit in that body
and participate in its proceedings ?
They have the power—not the two
Houses; but each House for itself. The
Constitution further declares that no
State shall be deprived of its 'equal suf
frage in the Senate of the United
States without its consent. Then,
Where do we stand ? All that is, needed
to finish this great work of restoration
is for the two Houses respectively to
determine the question. "Oh ! but some
one will say :" "A traitor might come
in." The answer to that is that each
louse must be the judge, and, if a
traitor presents himself, cannot either
House know that ho is a traitor 7 [Ap
plause.] And if ho is a traitor, can
they not kick him out the door, and
send him hack, saying to the people
who senthim, "You must send use. loyal
man 1" (Cheers, and a voice, "That's
logic.") Is there difficulty about that 7
(No no, and cheers.) If a traitor pre
sents himself to either House, cannot
that House say to him : "No, you can
not bo admitted into this body. Go
back. We will not deny your people
the right of representation, but they
must send us a loyal representative.
(Cheers.) And when the States do send
loyal representatives, can you have
any better evidence of their fidelity to
the Constitution and the laws ? There
is no ono learned in the Constitution
' and the•laws, who will say that if a
traitor happens to get into Congress,
the body cannot expel him after he gets
in. That makes assurance doubly
sure, and conforms the action of the
Government to the Constitution of our
fathers. Hondo I say, lot us stand by
that Constitution ; and in standing by
it the covenant will be preserved.'
"The war against slavery has not
been fought in vain."—John W. For%
The soldiers and the people were
assured during the progress of the war
that the war was for the preservation of
the Union, but Forney now says it was
against slavery—that the soldiers vol
unteered to fight for the negro. The
sympathizers of the rebels made a simi
lar charge against the Government--
the soldiers did not believe it then and
they will not believe it now, and For
ney's assertion can have no other ef
fect than to convince Union men that
ho is falling into line with those who
wore enemies of the Government dur
ing the war. If it was slandering
the soldiers for "Copperheads" to say
during the war that the soldiers wore
fighting for the negro, is not Forney
slandering the soldier now by asserting
that they were fighting to free the
Igge - The Government has located a
national cemetery near Fredericks
burg, on St. Mary's heights, overlook
ing the town. It is Proposed to inter
here some twelve thousand bodies of
Union soldiers who fell in the two
battles of Fredericksburg, and at Chan
cellorsville, Wilderness. and Spottsyl.
vania Court House. Quite a large num
ber of bodies have already been remo.

dr - It is curious sometimes to know
who ask for pardons,—quite 'as curious
as it is to observe the degree of cen
sure bestowed on the President, ac
cording as it is known who it is that
ask for his clemency in behalf of late
rebels. It was the other day that tho
pardoning of some noted Southerner
or other at the request of Senator
Pomeroy, was published. So distin
guished a Republican being the appli•
cant, the act was not particularly cen
sured; but amends wore made for this
forbearance on the part of those who
are determined to let no opportunity
pass for censuring the Presidont,whon
it was made known that ho had par
doned Keys and Haney, two promi
nent rebels. No publication of the pe
titioners was made at the time, and
the presumption was that the Presi
dent had acted purely on his motion.
But the explanation, given in a Wash,
ington dispatch, is as follows :
"Most of the pardons now granted
by the President aro issued upon the
earnest request of leading men of the
North. I mentioned some prominent
cases of this character in my dispatch
es a few days ago. To-day the Presi—
dent pardoned Wade Keys, of Ala.,
the Assistant Attorney General of the
Southern Confederacy and George
Haney. of Nashville, late Brigadier
General in the rebel army. The first
of these acts of clemency was done
upon the special request of Attorney
General Speed and Admiral Lee; the
second upon the recommendation of
Mr. Speed and Maj. General George 11.
No doubt the President has granted
too tnany pardons, but it is simple jus•
tico only that when Republicans and
distinguished Unionists ask for par
dons and become responsible, the Pres
ident should have the benefit of that
fact.—Pittsburg Commercial.
From illoPittabzugh Commercial
United States Senator.
In the Sunday issue of the Philadel
phia Press we find the following edito
rial paragraph :
"Mr, J. W. Forney's speeeh,defining
Lis position as a candidate for 'United
States Senator, pronounced at Leba
non, in this State, oh Thursday even
ing last, will be published at length in
to-morrow's Press. It will be a full
and candid review of the whole politi•
cal situation."
In announcing himself for the high
eSt position within the gift of the peo
ple of Pennsylvania, Mr. Forney has
chosen a method of reaching the voters
—provided this is the time to do it—
which has our decided approval, when
it is generally agreed to. Appealing
to the people direct from the stump,
independent of conventions, commit
tees, or other clap-trap machinery, is
something we like, and in Mr. Forney's
case it shows reliance on one's own
powers and belief in ono's own merits
which argue the presence of some of
the qualities essential in a successful
public man. Mr. Forney's views, like
those of other men presumed to aspire
to the Senatorship, are supposed to be
in accord with• the principles of the
Union party. If they are not, he will
not, of course appeal to the party for
support. If they are, he has in this
respect no adVantage over other aspi
rants. It is not presumed that Mr.
Forney can set up anything peculiar
in his own behalf. If be shall estab
lish his equality he will probably
think himself fortunate, for within the
borders of our good State there are
mon the party would gladly honor
with the Senatorship, and to be deem
ed the equal of them would be an ho
nor of which Mr. Forney might be
proud. Mr. Forney has probably cal
culated tge consequences to the Union
cause of inviting a direct issue on the.
Senatorship in his own person, giving,
as it will, to the contest a character to
tally differe,nt from what, up to this
moment, it has had. The canvass be
twten General Geary and the lion.
Heider Clymer has thus far been
smooth and eminently satisfactory.--
Whether the - immediate presence of
Mr. Forney will be equal to the intro
duction of an clement of strength or
the reverse, persons may differ now
and can be decided at a later day.
It is unnecessary to say there Will
be other candidates, but whether any
of them will take the stm»p, or whe
ther they will think it more expedient
to permit the question to take the usu
al course, we have no opinion to es•
press, although wo impression
on the subject.
tar• The Now York Tribune takes a
survey of the crop prospect .of
and so far as it has positive informa,
tion, it is certain that the winter
wheat in the State. of New York, and
several other States, will be a very
short crop. Upon the
."true wheat
lands" of that State, of New Jersey,
Pennsylvania,Ohio, Michigan, Indiana,
Illinois, &c., the prospect for winter
wheat is very unfavorable. The pros
pect of a large troy of spring wheat in
Minnesota is flattering, and a larger
amount was sown than usual. The
same is true of the spring sown wheat
in other western States. Winter wheat
is badly killed in many places. There
will be about half an average crop of
winter wheat in Ohio, .Kentucky and
Illinois, but not more than one quarter
of a crop in lowa, and something bet
ter in Indiana. Up the valley of the
Illinois from Alton, the winter wheat
never was better, though, nearly de
stroyed in the eastern part of the State.
The prospect is fair for a good yield in
Maryland, Delaware, and parts of
Pennsylvania, but as a whole, the
prospect of a full crop of winter wheat
in all the Northern States is certainly
unfavorable. A largo breadth of spring
wheat has boon sown, but it is too soon
to be begin to calculate what really will
be, as it has many enemies to combat
before harvest Limo. The rye crop in
Now England, Eastern:New York,and
part of Pennsylvania and New Jersey
bids fair, as a general thing, for a good
crop. The oats orop is not promising,
exenpt, in some parts of the West.
There has been a larger crop of corn
planted than usual, but it is too early
to say what it will be.

that balance of power on which the
perfection and endurance of our polit

be a revolution, dangerous to a repub

A Dreadful Calamity.
One of the most shocking and la
mentable casualties we were ever call
ed upon to chronicle, says the Louis
ville Journal of the 19th, occurred yes
terday afternoon. About half past 2
o'clock, Miss Jennib Brown, daughter
of Dr. W. W. Brown, residing on Mad
ison street, a few doors below Eleventh
street, together with Miss Sallie Hart,
a young lady spending the day with
her, left the parlor, and their absence
was not noticed by Mrs. Brown until
a lady caller, about an hour and a half
subsequently, wont to the privy, and,
returning, told Mrs. Brown that there
was no floor in the out-house. Mrs.
Brown immediately suspected the dire
calamity that had befitllen her daugh
ter and friend, and gave the alarm.—
As soon as possible, and after•consid ,
erable trouble, the bodies of the unfor
tunate young girls were taken from
the horrible pit in which their happy
lives were sacrificed. Miss Brown
was eighteen years of age, and was
to have been married very seen. The
out-house was a common weather
boarded thing, set over a circular
brieked up vault sonic thirty feet in
depth, and about half tilled. The floor
of the house rested upon a thin board,
just resting upon the sides of the vault,
and had evidently dry rotted until, in
falling, the whole floor, with its living
freight, passed into the vault below.
Reading matter o'A {n•ovy pago
Commencement of the European War.
The steamship Jura brings intelli
gencomt the formal commencement of
the great European war. We say "for
mat" for there has been au actual state
of war ever since Prussia took posses
sion of Holstein. The Federal Diet
having, on the 14th of Juno, agreed to
the Austrian proposition for the mobi ,
fixation of the Federal army, Prussia,
agreeably to previous notice, carried
out her threat to consider it an act of
hostility on the part of those States—
which supported it, and on the follow•
ing day commenced the war by send
ing troops into Saxony and Hanover.
A report, which is not confirmed,
however, prevailed at Paris that an
engagement had taken place at Leipsic
on th e 16th.
Prussia has issued a declaration to
the great powers justifying the inva
sion, on the ground that the decision
of the Diet on the 14th broke up the
Confederation, and that the law of self
preservation compelled Prussia to se
cure herself against the neighboring
States in open or concealed - hostility;
that she had previously offered a con
ditional alliance, which' was rejected.
We thus have the immediate and
ostensible occasion for the war, as
Prussia gives it to the world. It will
be seen that it at once involves all .
Germany, instead of merely including
Prussia and Austria. Its grand and
imposing proportions may ho realized
w hen. we considar_that_ it, _ now
stands, it involves a population of over
severity millions. 11 to this number
we add Italy, we have the tremendous
total of quite one hundred millions of
humaU beings, all of whose resources
and energies are now to be turned to
the terrible work of destruction and
death. There has been nothing to
compare with it since the ditys of the
elder Bonaparte.
Europe has been so often fought over
that its strategic points are well set
tled. We shall accordingly find the
battles of the present war occurring,
in all probability, upon the old sites
which have so often trembled beneath
the tread of the armed legionS of the
great heroes of history.
Leipsic, where the first engagement
is reported to have occurred, is the
scone of that terrible three days' bat
tle in October, 1813, where Napoleon,
with 130,000 men, withstood the as
sault of the allies with 250,000, until he
was finally overpowered and driven
out of the city, with the loss of nearly
half his army.
The proximity of the Prussian and
Austrian armies is such, and the anxi
ety on either side to secure the advan
tages of position and the prestige of
success so urgent, that a great battle
must be close at hand.—Phila. Even
