Wednesday morning, July 18, 1866.
Maj. Gen. John W. Geary,
It is evident that there is a political
crisis near at hand when .parties and
men will experience some difficulty in
defining their positions. For months
the mere politicians, in high and low
places, have had their dance pretty
much to themselves and in their own
way. Within a month or so . several
important State and National Conven
tions will bo hold, all called .for the
purpose, as is alleged, of •advancing
the best interests of the whole people
and the whole country. Of course one
party or faction of a party will contend
that the. country and the people can
bo safe only on its platform, and so
with every other that may be sprung
into exiiteacc, some weeks or
months to come. As for ourselves we
believe all radical parties, now that
one war is over, are and will bo a curse
to our country. Tho people want
peace and wily go with that party
most disposed to keep peace in an hon
orable way. If the radical notions of
radical Republicans should 'be forced
upon the country, we, conscientiously
believing as -we do, - cannot expect peace
to the country. Neither' can we expect
peace, if the rebels or their sympathizers
should get into power where they I
could have an opportunity to do mis
chief. There seems to boo necessity,
at least the people outside of strict old
party drill 'appear to think so, for a
conservative organization State and
National, a union of all men willing to
east aside old prejudices that onr coun
try may live and our people prosper.
But there is 'a difficulty in the way of
such an organization—the influential
old party loaders would oppose it.
A convention is called to' meet in
Philadelphia on the 14th of August.
Pour Delegates will be received from
each Congressional district to be taken
from the supporters of Lincoln and
Johnson in 1864, And a like number
from their opponents. Wo have no
doubt every district in the State will
be represented, and represented too
by many able and good men. What
effect this new movement may line
upon the old organizations it is impos
sible now even to guess. It may still
further disorganize•the 'Union party.
.completely . disorganize the
"Democratic organization." It may
lay the foundation stone upon which
may be built a great party. It may
adjourn without accomplishing any
good or any evil. The Convention is
called for the purpose of sustaining
Andrew Johnson's restoration policy,
and as wo are strongly that way in
clined as far as we understand it, wo
shall not object to the body endorsing
it:. But we wish it to be distinctly un
derstood that we are with Andy Sohn.
son just so long as we beliovb his policy
to fully restore tho country to peaco is
better than any other that is or may
be offered by Congress or any otfier
body or party. If it: should so happen
that the continued persecutions heaped
upon the President .by Thad. Stevens,
Forney & Co., should have the effect
of forcing hitri finally out of the line
of the Union party and into the ranks
of rebel sympathizers, we would then,
most likely, take a back seat, as a
choice of evilsi and wait patiently for
another clash of arms, the fruits of
radicalism. We do not intend to unite
with any set of men and assist in
bringing upon our country another
and more destructive war.
ge•Had the Union soldiers known
in 1861, or any time beforo the close
of the rebellion, that they were fight
ing to free the negro, and to put him
on an equality with the white man,
they never would have shouldered a
musket or tramped to the music of the
Union, or fought for the preservation
of the Government. And yet the
Radicals aro bold enough to say now,
what they dared not to say two or
three years ago, that it was a war
against slavery. Our journal has al
ways declared that the war was for
the preservation of the Union, compact
and entire, and we stand aloof from all
who say it was a war to free the ne
gro. Providence interfered at the
right time, and slavery was abolished
by His decree, but to say that the abol
ition of slavery was the prime object
of the war is downright heresy. The
conduct of the majority of Congress
since the close of the rebellion only
seems to verify their professions, for
more efforts have been made to place
the negro on an equality than have
been made for the preservation of the
Union entire, or than has been done
for the brave white defenders of the
I.E' Andy Johnson should turn out of
office all who are opposed to him, he
would bo doing nothing more than the
radieals - aro doing wherever they have
the power. Some of them even go so
far as to refuse Johnson men seats in
Union Conventions. Perhaps they
may venture to go still further and re
fuse on election day to receive. votes
;01 eeary from Johnson men.
The question arises, who is to blam e
for the presoul unhappy state of affaire
in the Government? The policy pur
sued by Mr. Lincoln and taken up by
Mr. Johnson was not such as could
create any separation, and the South at
the conclusion of the rebellion immedi
ately began to build up again. Mann
factures were speedily reviving, and
intercourse with the North was eager
ly sought. The business men and
planters of the South may have expe,
rienced-a loss in their slaves, but they
were beginning to hire them, and the
negroes were getting used gradually
to their new condition. Bat how
was it when Congress assembled !
What changes took place after it be
gan to speak I The President didn't
show enough partiality to the down
trodden African race ; they must -be
exalted to higher •poSitions than hired
men; they 'Mist bo the Government's
children, to be fed ana. pampered by
it; they must leceive an education at
the expense of the Government; indeed,
their interests must be looked to be
fore the Union could be restored.
Such were the declarations of the Rad
icals in Congress. The President would
not heed their wild, fanatical screams
for the negro alone, and checked their
endeavors to lavish millions of the
people's money on them. Then was it
that Congress raised the cry which
has been taken up by every man who
fails to reason for himself, or is willing
to be led by the nose by his party
This is what caused the unhappy
feeling that now exists. When Con
gress iuteifered with the President in
his honest and just .administration of
the Government, the effect was felt
throughout the country. The activity
in business circles of the South died
away, and. Northern men ceased to
emigrate or hold any commercial
intercourse with the South, not know
ing what might be the result of the
controversy. The slaves, 'too, began
to assume it ridiculous dignity and
ceased to work for wages, thinking the
Government had engaged to keep
But the effects of the opposition of
Congress to the President is felt also
in the political field. Parties have
split and are re-uniting, a new issue is
raised everyday, and honest men know
not where their leaders would take
them. We can sco but two sides—ono
for the perpetuation of the Union en
tire and the other for the negro first.
Wo have many parties but only one is•
sue—,coun try or no country. Under the
standard of our country and our whole
country r wo aro ready to battle.
Going the Whole Hog.
Forney, in his Washington Chronicle
of the `4d inst., prepared the following
whole bog indictment against the
President. Read it:
"While ho pardons the red-handed
rebel he proscribes tho pure-hearted
patriot. While ho calls for the tondo' ,
est treatment of the southern commu
that filled the rebel armies ho
vetoes every measure intended to pro- I
test the rights and to promote the in
terests of the loyal people. As ho
nielts before what ho calls the suffer
ings of the southern people be never
shows tho slightest sympathy for the
oppressed and friendless coloreerace.
The doors that are thrown open for
the admission of the organizers of the
rebellion, as well in civil as in military
life, are closed upon the great states
men who gave their days and nights to
the preservation of the cause of the
republic. So complete is the transfor
mation. that if Jefferson Davis wore
now in the presidential chair clothed
with imperial powers, to complete the
mission of the yebellion, ho could not
more severely punish the men who op
posed him or more generously reward
the men who sustained him."
• If Andrew Johnson needs a minute
vindication against - charges so trans
parently untrue as these unquestiona
bly are,his work has indeed been vain.
The country knows that every one of
the imputations thus piled together is
groundless. And the country will
have no difficulty in discovering the
animus or determining the moral au
thority of the journalist who prints
allegations which aro refuted in ad
vance by the record of Andrew John 7
son's service. Of course what Forney
says, Robert DieDiVitt will swear to,
and just such stuff is repeated weekly
in the Journal & American and other
such like papers.
Tun intelligent reader remembers
very well that Thad. Stevens and oth
ers of the radicals who are now con
troling the majority in Congress, wore
as bitterly opposed to President Lin
coln, as they aro to President John
son now. If President Lincoln was in
the Executive chair today he would
receive the same treatment from the
factionists that Johnson and Seward
are receiving. If Thad. Stevens had
had control of the war power of the
Government there would have been
no declaration of peace until every
white man, woman and child in the
South had been cut down—so strong
is his prejudices against slavery and
the white population of slave States.
t''''he State Central Committee of
the National Union Party (new) for
the State of Pennsylvania, will meet
at the Washington House, Philadel
phia, on Thursday, July 19th inst.,
at 12 o'clock.
A convention ofßadical Union men
from the Southern Statos will bo hold

SEN:t Toe CowA N.— W ha lever may be
said of Mr. Cowan, as to his ailllOrCileo
to the party Organization that once
claimed him as faithful in tho harness,
all reading men must admit that he
votes as he klihS. Unlike many other
representatives at Washington who
have spoken against radical measures
and then voted for them, Mr. Cowan
spoke and voted against them. Por
pursuing such a coil i•se, uOasiacnl with
all honorable men, he is denounced by
every radical in Pennsylvania. And
where is Mr. Cowan on the great in
terest, of Pen nsylvania T -ilte. tariff?
Last week the question was disposed
of—postpoped until December,---t he most
prominent radicals voting for a post
ponement, and Mr. Cowan and other
conservatives voting for immediate ac
tion. The Tariff is one of the most
important plarks in the platform of
the Union party, and just at the time
the people expected important results
from the passage of a bill demanded
by the party, the radicals stop forward
and destroy the hopes of their constit
uents. Mr. Cowan remained true to
the interestS of Pennsylvania and true
to the dethands of the Union party, and'
he will not be forgotten for thus re
maining true to the important inter
ests of his constituents.
CONCIRES3 SEE TO rr?--A friend
of ours, says an exchange, who has
lately returned from the south, where
he has been making a tour of inspec
tion and observation on his own hook,
has boon amusing us with an account
of some of the incidents that came un
der his notice. Among other things
referred to, he speaks of the great
anxiety existing among many of the
radical Yankee agents of the Freed
men's Bureau for a continuance and
enlargement of this philanthropic
branch of our National Government.
It scuds that these representatives of
the land of wooden nutmegs have hit
upon a very novel and ingenious way
of making an honest penny—their cun
ning deception not being suspected by
the ignorant and unsuspicious—tor
Government officers are presumed to
deal fairly. This new artifice—this
new method of raising the wind by
these exetnplitr2. , agents is—to combine
and gather the freedmen together in
large bodies—have thorn clipped like
sheep—and the proceeds of the shear
ing is then baled up, shipped, and sold
for the purpose of making curled hair

POLITICB Ix WASIIINGTON.7---The pot•
iticians in Washington are highly exci•
ted just now, and will no doubt con
tinue in the same state for some time.
ThO radicals want to head-off tho Pres
ident, and the President wants to
head-off tho radicals. The outs want
to get in and those in dont want to get
out of their fat offices. Thospeculators
aro on the look-out hoping' for more
chances to plunder, and the honest
man is afraid-of more serious trouble.
The elephant is in the hands of the
politicians and they will dispose of
him as soon as they can get their tac
klo to work harmoniously.
II The Radicals throughout the
country are busily engaged in defhtn
ing the President. Not many Months
ago the same men now employed
in this disreputable business distinctly .
announced that the President was the
government, and that any abuse of the
former was undeniable treason to the
latter•. Any person who wrote or
spoke of the Executive exeept in a
complimentary manner,was deemed by
these worthies as fit only for impris
onment or exile.
Fr don't read well for the radicals to
charge President Johnson with want
ing power to play the tyrant, when it
is known that bad he signed the Freed
mons' Bureau Bill he would have had
an army of office holders and millions
of money to use at his pleasure.
r c a.The old Democratic Club, of
Washington, which has coalesced with
the Johnson Club, was composed of

lodged at the proper moment, and
meanwhile to. lio troated as of no ae.

case is, of course, convenient for those
who employ it. To take for granted
the identical points which are in con
troversy, and. then to propound con
elusions with the emphasis that at
taches to axioms,' is to avoid mach
trouble, and to acquire a pleasant and
plausible importance. Thus, the radi
cal press asserts its right to - propound
extreme views as for the Republican
party, and to represent the radical ma

inheritors of the ihith that elected fiti
coin, and gave to the Rebellion its

wanting to render this position invul

The Republican party, as we have
many times bad occasion to show, was
in its origin conservative, and so also
it has been uniformly, in its lbrmal ut
terances. The platforms upon which
Mr. Lincoln was elected in 1860 and
1861 were in their essentials the very
platform upon which conservative. Re

not a speck of radicalism is discovera

purposes of the party that elected him,
and with his own declared intentions.

The governing power in Congress
manifested tho same spirit. its pro•
ceedin , t' s furnish no sign of hidden pun:
poses of vengeance, or of • the extreme
opinions which now aspire to suprem
acy. On the contrary, the resolves of
Congress, like the platforms and the
inaugurals, set forth but one object,
the restoration of the Union, and dis
claimed all desire to abridge the priv
ileges of the Southern people when
they should be brought back to t e licii•
old constitutional position in the Union.
Where, then, is the title of tho radi,
eats to the mastery ? At what stage
in the history of the party was its con
servatism thrown overboard ? At.
what period, and by whom were the
Republican platforms adopted at Chi
cago and Baltimore discarded, the as
surances of President Lincoln repudia
ted, and the resolutions of Congress
overridden as destitute of authority?
When, by whom, and with what au
thority were the moderate, constitu
tional principles of the party rejected
to make room for the extreme opinions
- and measures which are arrogantly
thrust forward in the name of the par
ty ? We shall be glad to have specific
answers to these interrogatories, for
they appear to cover the ground which
is in dispute. If the Republican party
really is the radical, disunion organiza
tion which not a few of our cbtempo
varies declare it to be, wo want to
know how, whon;whore, and by whom
the change was perfected. WO want
to know when and throrigh what law

of the party wore driven out. For,
with the party platforms:conservative ;
and the twice elected President con
servative, the right seems to be on the
conservative side, and the onus of
establishing title rests upon the radicals.
It is plain, moreover, that the con

acquired. In lowa they have held a
