"What the Republican Party De
"What the Democratic Party De
man d ."—Harrisburg Telegraph.
Wo notice of late that many of the
radical Republican papers of the State,
speak of the two political parties of the
State as "the Republican party" and
"the Democratic party." The Journal
& American, also radical, sometimes
condescends to style the Union organ
ization the "Union Republican Party,"
but most generally speaks of it as the
"Republican Party." We are at a loss
to see the object the radicals have in
view in claiming the . Union Party or
ganization as a , :llepublican Party,"
unless it is for the purpose of disorgan
izing, as far as possible, the Union
Party., We know of no such national
organization as the "Republican Par
ty." We know of no such State or
ganization as the "Republican Party."
Neither do we know of any "Republi
can Party" organization in this coun
ty. The National Convention wiped
out the idea of a &Republican National
organizations—and we have not heard
of a “Republican State ..Convention''
being hold in this State since the war
commenced. And to come nearer
home—when was there a "Republican
County Convention" held? baring the
war every man, Democrat, Aiueriean
and Republican,who supported the Ad
ministration in good faith was a Union
man and was a recognized member of
a Union organization—a Union Party."
Are all Union Democrats,—and all
other Union men who can not endorse
the radical measures of radical Repub.
licans, to understand, now, that the
conduct of the radicals in claiming the
Union Party as a "Republican Party"
—means a repudiation by them of the
"Union Party"---a repudiation of the
Union Party organization ? If such is
the object of the radicals and their
organ in this county; we, speaking for
ourself and other Uui3u Democrats
and other Union men, invite the radi
cals to the issue. If the radicals of
this county desire to get rid 'of what
sounds unpleasant in their ears—and is
unpleasant to their sight—the "Union.
Party"—they will have an opportuni
ty to change the name of the organiza
tion when the Delegate Convention of
the "Union Party" meets in this place
the second week in August. And
speaking for ourself, we desire that
Convention to select its colors and be
manly onough to stand by them. No
good can result from the practice of
deception. If a Union Party is to ex
ist during the present campaign, it
must exist in spirit and in action, and
not in name only. If the radical dele
gates tolthat Convention should desire
a dissointion of partnership—a disso
lution of the Union Party—the with
drawal or expulsion of the Union Dem
ocrats and conservative Republicans—
all that will be necessary to accom
plish such a purpose will be the adop
tion of a resolution . SaYing so in plain
words; and we ask the voters of the
Union Party of the county to attend
the delegate elections and make their
sentiments known in the selection-of
delegates. We shall be satisfied with
the action of the delegates, no matter
what their decision may be on the
question as we present it. Union con
servative men have no idea of remain
ing in an organization as mere hewers
of wood and drawers of water.
CURTIN OR CAMERON.
Tho most important issue before the
Union County Convention to be held
in this place on Tuesday the 14th of
August, will be the nomination of eith
er a Curtin or a Cameron man for the
Legislature. A U. S. Senator will be
elected by the next Legislature, and the
WO most prominent men for that posi
tion are Gov. Curtin. and Simon Cam
eron. If the friends of -Andrew G.
Curtin desire to see him successful
over Mr. Cameron, they will not fail
to attend the township delegate elec
tions and elect men as delegates who
will vote in Convention for no other
than an' open and avowed friend of
Curtin. United States Senator is an
important position—and delegates
must not forget that they are voting to
fill that office when they make their
choice for the Legislature. If the wkl
pws and the, orphans of the State could
have the selection of the man to occu
py a seat ip the United States Senate,
that man would be Andrew G. Curtin.
"Bnt, the soldiers and their friends who
have votes, know Governor Curtin and
they will not forget or desert him. Lot

for two years, and as one of his bail
we may yet be "stuck." S. G. Whit

continues to hold it. We assisted each

by them, not asking for or receiving
any favors from them or the Union
party, as a reward for our friendly of

editors think they have not been suf.

people will think they value their ser

TuE 14TH AUGUST CONVENTION.-
We have hoard men object to taking
part in "the Union National Conven
tion'-' to be held in Philadelphia on the
14th of August, on the ground that
such action might bind them to sup
port any policy or platform the major
might adopt. No man will enter
that Convention with any such under
standing—every delegate will be freo
either to endorse or reject a platform
—to approve or disapprove the action
of the Convention. A pledge binding
the delegates to submit to the decree
of the majority will not be given by
any man in or out of the Convention.
We look upon that Convention as we
would upon a town meeting called for
the purpose of devising ways and
means to save the town from destruc
tion. If good, wise and influential men
will not make an effort to restore
national unity, fraternity and harmo
ny, our country will soon be in a de
plorable condition. We all remember
that a few years ago, all men, without
respect to party associations, were called
upon to rally as one man, to save the
country, and now, just now, it is just as
important to rally in the same spirit as

Message of President Johnson Signing
the Resolution 'Restoring Tennessee to
.her Former Rights and Privileges.--He
Confesses his Dislike to the Doeument.
Wash moroN, July 24.—The Presi
dent this afternoon transmitted the an
nexed message, namely
To the House of Representatives :
The following joint resolution, re
storing Tennessee to her relations to
the Union, was last evening presented
for my approval :
"Whereas, In the year,lBol the gov
ernment of the State of Tennessee was
seized upon and taken possession of by
persons in hostility to the United
States, and the inhabitants of said
State, in pursuance of an act of Con
gress, were declared to be in a state of
insurrection against the TJnited States:
And whereas, the said State govern•
ment can only be restored to its former
political relations in the Union by the
consent of the law making - power of
the United States: And whereas, the
people of the said State did, on the
22d day of February, 1865, by a large
popular vote, adopt and ratify- a con
stitution of government whereby sla
very was abolished and all ordinances
and laws of secession and debts con
tracted under the same were declared
void: And whereas, a State govern
ment has been organized under the
said constitution, which has ratified
the amendment to the Constitution of
'the United States abolishing slavery,
also the amendment proposed by the
thirty.ninth Congress, and has clone
other acts proclaiming and denoting
loyalty; therefore, be it
"Resolved by the Senate and liousewf
Representatives of the United States of
America, "in Congress assembled, That
the State of Tennessee is hereby 're
stored to her former proper practical
relations to the 'Union, and is again
entitled to be represented by Senators
and Representatives in Congress."
The preamble simply consists of
statements, some of which are assumed ;
while the resolutions is merely a dec
laration of opinion it comprises no
legislation, nor noes it confer any pow
er which is binding upon the respec
tive Houses, the Executive or the
States. It does not admit to their
seats in Congress the Senators and
Representatives from the State of
Tennessee ; for notwithstanding the
passage of the resolution, each Rouse,
in the exercise of the constitutional
right to judge for itself of the election,
returns and qualification of its mom
,bers, may at its discretion admit or
continue to exclude them. If 'a joint
resolution of this character were nec
essary and binding as a condition pre
cedent to the admission of members of
Congress, it would happen, in the
event of a veto by the Executive, that
Senators and Representatives could
only be admitted to the halls of legis
lation by a two-thirds vote of each of
the two Houses.
Among other reasons recited in tho
preamble for the declarations contained
in the resolution, is the ratification, by
the State government of Tennessee, of
the aniendment to the Constitution of
the United States abolishing slavery,
and also the amendment proposed by
the Thirty-ninth Congress. If, as is
also' declared in the preamble, the said
State government can only be restored
to its former• political relations in the
Union by the consent of the law ma
king power of the United States, it
would really seem to follow that the
joint resolution, which at this late day
has received the sanction of Congress,
Should have been passed, approved, and
placed on the statute books before any
amendment to the Constitution was
submitted to the Legislature of Tenn
essee for ratification. Otherwise, the
inference is plainly deducible that
while, in 'the opinion of Congress, the
people of a State may be too strongly
disloyal to be entitled to representa
tion, they may, nevertheless, during
the suspension of their former practi
cal relations to the Union, have an
equally potent voice with 'other and
loyal States in proposition to amend
the Constitution, upon which so essen
tially 'depends the stability, prosperity,
and very existence of the Union.
A brief reference to my annual mes
sage of the 4th of December last will
show the steps taken by the Executive
for• the restoration to their constitu
tional relations to the Union of the
States that had been affected by the
rebellion. Upon the cessation of ac•
tive hostilities provisional governors
wore appointed, conventions called,
' governors elected by the people, Leg
islatures assembled, and Senators and
Representatives chosen to time Con
' gross of the United States.
At the same time the courts of - the
United States were re-opened, the
blockade removed, the custom-houses
re established, the postal operations
resumed. 'rho amendment to the
Constitution, abolishing slavery 11)r
-ever within the limits of the country,
was also submitted to the States, and
they were thus invited to, and did,
participate iti'kratification, thus exer
cising the higqest functiOns pertaining
to a State: In addition, nearly all of
these States,tltrough their conventions
and Legislatures, had adopted and rat
ified the amendment• to the Constitu
tion, whereby slavery was abolished,
and all ordinances and laws of seces
sion, and debts: contracted under the
mule, wore declared void.
So far, then, the political existence
of the States arqd their relations-to the
Federal Governinent had been fully
and completely recognized and ac
knowledged by the Executive Depart
merit of the Government; and the
completion of the work of restoration,
which had progressed so favorably,
was submitted to Congress, upon which
devolved all questions pertaining to
the admission to their seats of the Sen•
ators and Repr6sentatives chosen from
the States whose people had engaged
in the rebellion.
All these steps had heen taken when,
on the 4th day of December, 1865, the
Thirty-ninth Congress assembled.
Nearly eight- months have elapsed
since that time, and no other plan of
restoration having been proposed by
Congress for the measures instituted
by the Executive, it is now declared
iu the joint resolution submitted for
my approval, that the State of Tenn
essee is hereby restored to her former
practical relations to the Union, and is
again entitled to be represented by
Senators and Representatives in Con
gress. Thus, after it lapse of nearly
eight months, :Congress proposes to
pave the way tO'the admission to rep
resentation of one of the eleven States
whose peophil arrayed themselves in
rebellion against the constitutional au
thority of the, Federa l. Government.
Earnestly desiring to' relieve every
cause of urdler delay, whether real or
imaginary on the part of Congress, to
the admission to seats of loyal Senators
and Representatives from the State of
Tennessee, I have, notwithstanding
the anomalous character of this pro
ceeding,affixed my signature to the res
olution. My approval s however, is not
to be construed as an acknowledge
ment of the right of Congress to pass
laws preliminary to the admission of
duly qualified Representatives from any
of the States, Neither is it to be con
sidered as committing me to all the
statements made in the preamble,
some of which are in my opinion with
out foundation in fact, 'especially tho
assertion that the State of Tonnes See
has ratified the - amendment to the
Constitution of the United States pro
posed by the Thirty-ninth Congress.
No official notice of such ratification
has been received by the Executive, or
filed in 7..thaWepartment of State; on
the contrary, unofficial information
from most reliable sources induces the
belief that the amendment has not yet.
been constitutionally sanctioned by the
Legislature ofTennessee. The right
of each House under the Constitution,
to judge of the election returns and
qualifications of its own members is
undoubted, and my approval or disap
proval of the resolution could not in
the slightest degree increase or dimin
ish the authority in this respect, con
fbrred upon the two branches of Con
In conclusion I cannot too earnestly
repeat my recommendation fbr the ad
mission of Tennessee and all other
States to a fair and equal participation
in national legislation, when they pre
sent themselves in the persons of loyal
Senators and Representatives, who can
comply with all the requirements of
the Constitution and the laws. By
this means, harmony and reconciliation
will be effected, the practical relations
of all the Stat6S to the Federal Govern
ment reestablished, and the work of
restoration inaugurated upon the ter
mination of the war successfully com
