Wednesday morning, Aug. 8, 1866.
Maj. Gen. John W. Geary,
DaT"Congress was. in session seven
mouths and the majority of the mem
bers before they went home voted
themselves an extra bounty of $2,000,
and the soldiers $5O and
. $l.OO instead
of $3OO as was first proposed. The
members were - quite liboral---toward
themselves. -
• 1195 r Ex. Governor Wm. P. .Tehnston
has heal appointed by the Presidebt,
Collector of the reit of Philadelphia.
This the radicals will say is another
"Copperhead" appointment. Several
other appointments were made for
Philadelphia, all Union men, but not
of Thad. Stevens' kind.
Tan Cabinet, with the new appoint
ments, stamis'as follows:
"Secretary of H. Seward.
Secretary of War—E. M. Stanton.
Secretary of the Navy—G. Welles.
Secretary of the Interior---Orvillo H.
Browning. -
, Postmaster general—A. W. Randall.
illtdrhey General—H. Stansberry.
Tho" National Union Convention
to be - held'in Philadelphia commencing
on. Tuesday next, promises to be the
largest 'ConVention ever held in the
United Stato.i: It will boa curiosity
it more--and may result in
gond: e,very good Union man
will rejoice. The only. men in this
State'opposed to 'it are , such men as
Stevens, Forney & Co., rind their abe•
dient followers. , They see the hand
writing en the 'wall. They see that the
Union party existed during the
war, will not be moulded to suit their.
radical and revolutionary purposes.
/1:1 BLun."=llow muoh honesty there
is in the constant professions of affec
tion fOr the soldiers of the Union. army,
which make so much of the stock in
trade of Radical journals and- orators,
may be seMl'in the following-item from
the New York Tribune:
. . ,
There is 'yet some hope that the
Senate will refuse to Lass the bill for
the. equalization. of Mounties, as the
House insists upon its disagreements;
and the matter is referred to a commit
tee. of conference. This bill is foolhar
dy; it acids a vast expense to the na
tion, and does little good to individu
als. • -.
DON'T. BE ALARMED.—SoIve of the
Republicans and some of the radical
"Democrats" seem to think that no
good can comp . out of the 14th of Au
gust Philadelphia Convention. Result
as it may we cannot see what harm it
can do. If. the Convention blows up
in a row the people will be more satis
fied than ever that they cannot look to
political conventions for relief. If it
should odnduet its business harmoni
ously, and condescend to do something
to bring.aboat a bettor feeling all over
the Iroion, we cannot see why all good
and true men should not rejoide at such
a result."
Za•The difficulty in the Union party
of the country, was commenced during
the war :by Thad. Stevens and others
of his school of politicians. President
L. -
incoln'was denounced
. by them, and
they. even Went so fir as to attempt to
defeat his re-nomination. Failing in this
they continued their persecution of
him until his death. As soon as An
drew Jrohnson occupied the Presiden
tial. 'chair, and befbre it was known
that he would differ with Congress as
to the pp/icy to be adopted by the
Union party for the , restoration of the
rebel States, Stevens- commenced to
abuse him in his speeches made in the
Holise. The truth is clear that Ste
vens is not a more bitter enemy of
President Johnson'. than he was of
President Lincoln, but during the war
ho could not rally his friends .'is readily.
as he has sine() the close of the rebel

and 'negro equality will satisfy Stevens

have if.perinitted to control the Union

Another "Traitor,"
The .I.lTorth American, edited by Hen.
Morton McMichael, Mayor of Philadel
phia, is not all' the radicals would wish
it to be. We give an extract or two
from its editorial columns of last
Our country has been so unaccus
tomed to such burdens as this vast
debt,that all who contemplate as we do
with uneasiness the complicated and
confused mass of taxes now inflicted ,
upon us as a Consequence of that debt,
must be:rejoiced to find-this .policy : of
reduction the settled determination
of the government. No doubt hereaf
ter each successive administration
will be more or less judged of by the
extent of its labors in this direction,
and President Johnson has made a
very good' beginning by what has been
accomplished under his direction since
his accession to the Presidency. •
President Johnson has preferred the
direct and .obvious plan of retrench
ment and immediate reduction, for the
purpose of affording present relief from
the more onerous burdens'oftaXation.
We give 'hint Credit for this policy
rather:than any one else, bedause it
was . a, corollary of his whole past po
litical life. His speeches were always
replete with advocacy °flow taxation;
cheap government, and simpliCity of
administrative' forms. Ills - prompt
reorganization of - the conquered StateS on
the return of peace, and disbandment of
our vast armies and swarms of war offi
cials, undoubtedly , saved the nation
hundreds of millions of dollars ; and,
as wo approved of ;his action then, we
have since soon no reason • to change
our views."
Mr. McMichael then turns hia aten.
lion to the radicals in Congross,saying
they were bewildered amidst their
own Schemes of public ,plunder; and
For this reason it is essential that
010 national government should seri
ously address itself, as the administra
tion of President Johnson has been do
ing, to the.-work of discharging the
debt; and. it is also, essential that Con.
gross should do as little an possible to
ward increasing our expenditures.
What we desire is, that tho Presi
dent should' be stregthened in his of
to limit expenditures and, reduce
the public debt: - Congressional extrav
agance has long been proverbial, and
One session seems no worse than an
other in that respect.' But if, while.
widely differing - from him in other re
spects, the confidence of the people was'
shown to be retained . by the Presi
dent in . that portion.of 1)16 policy
. which
seeksretrenchment of expenses and
reduction of debt, that sentiment could
not fail to react upon Congress and
arrest the schemes of plunder that run
riot at every session.
Nothing, it seems to us, can be more
clear, more emphatic, and more reason
able than this.
in another coldmn a condensed account
of the political riot in New Orleans,
which we fear will be followed up with
similar results in ether places, if radi
cals persist in their attempt to force
upon the people their "policy." We
are not surprised that "free speech" is
interfered with, when the whole white
population of a State is insulted by the
speaker. Wo have read in the Phila
delphia Press the speech of Gov.'llahn,
delivered .at the mass meeting of radi.
cals and five thousand negroes in New
Orleans on-the 30th ult. The meeting
was hold for the purpose of. recom
mending the re-assembling of the State
Convention of '64. We give but a few
lines of Mr. Hahn's speech and ask our
readers how they would like to listen
to such stuff. • .
Gov. Hahn said :
"No Man . .can justly claim to be a
Union man unless ho favors universal
Addressing the negroes he
"The question is whether veil will
he allowed to hold office as White men
do; I say you are entitled to the right.
* :* -It is -to you that the loyal
men of the South must look, and when
you separate to-night make up your
minds . from this day forward, you are
as good as'any White man in the State.
[Great cheering."]
Can any man entertaining such sen
timents be elected to office from tiny
county in this State? Yet such senti
ments are endorsed by the radical
leaders in every State in the Union.
Is it any wonder, that the once pow
erful Union party is falling to pieces.

The Boys ln Blue Speak.
The publication of the following
handsome endorsement of our humblo
self has been requested and we comply.
To 'Valiant Lewis, Esq, Editor of the
Globe :
We feel that the soldiers of Hunt
ingdon county owe you a debt of grat
itude for your devotion to them and
the cause of tho . oonntry through the
late war. In tho darkest hours of the
rebellion your ratriotislu never waver
ed, and while we wore away from
home, fighting treason in front of an
armed foo; you stood faithful to us and
the national cause with a courage that
know no fear,
Disregarding former Party ties and
organizations, you gave your Means
mid your paper to the support of the
war and the bravo men who were per
iling their : lives for the integrity of
the Union.. •
Knowing and feeling this, it is with
deep regret:that We have read the
cent proceedings of what is called the
"Geary League" of this county. Wo
aro sorry that a feW of our soldiers,
who have escaped rebel bullets, are
now in the hands of ti . clique of politi
cians, who . know no motivo higher
than their interost, and wheso patriot
ism oxtends only to the "loaves and
fishes." In the desperate effort of
these worn out political tricksters to
control conventions . and secure nomi•
nations, they' are willing to abuse and
traduce the. men who ,have remained
mostfaitliful to the soldier during the
war, and While professing groat lovo
for "the boys in blue," they oppose ev
ery effort to reward worthy soldiers
with civil office. We cannot forget
that the three crippled soldiers now
holding positions of honor and profit
in this county, were: aftnominated over
the most determined opposition of the
very clique that is now using the Gea
ry League to slander you.
- You stoodfor, the soldiers against
the politician, and the geherons heart
of the people went With • you. No
thank you for what you have done for
the soldier, and we trust that you will
again , be ablo to rout the ,miserable
faction that are atteMpting to use the
- heroes of the war for their selfish and
heartless purpose.
We assure you-that the -work of the
political tricksters in trying, to have
the Geary League denounce you is an
outrage upon the true soldiers.of Hun
tingdon county, and will be, as it-de
serves to be, overwhelmingly rebuked
by them.

Win. Lewis :—Dear fool that
I would not be doing right if I would
not applaud you for your patriotic
course which you havo.dared. to brave,
notwithstanding the so-called Soldiers'
League reading you out of tho great
Union party, of which they want to
make us poor privates boliovo they aro
the head and shoulder. lam sorry to
hear that those soldiers who constituto
the "boys in blue" of the_ancient bor
ough should so far forgot who was the
true soldiers' friend all through the
late rebellion, or who has boon the
true and tried friend of the soldier last
fall in getting a whole soldiers ticket
nominated and elected. I would beg
those worthies to pause for ono mo
ment, and I think that after taking a
sober second thought they will have
to acknowledge that William Lewis
has been the soldiers fast friend and is
yet. lam very sorry that the "boys
in blue" have fallen into the hands of
a few political hucksters, but I am also
glad to toll you that they do not speak
the sentiment of the groat majority of
the "boys in blue" but merely those
eleven controled by those broken down
politicians, who want to use the sol
diers as a cloak for their own bad de
Now, if the boys in blue, through
the instigation of those poor, misera
ble, would-be leaders of the great Uni
on party, read all out of the party who
do not, see fit to endorse the course of
Thad Stevens fi Co., I fear that they
will find out when too late that they
have read oat of the party the greater
number of soldtms of Huntingdon Co.
For fear somebody may think I too
ant a Copperhead I will have to define
my position. I am a Johnson-Geary
Union man. I always acted with and
voted with the great Union Party,
and would no more touch a Copper
head ticket than a snake of the same
name. Yours, VEPERAN.

The. New Orlens Riot.
Thirty porous Killed and a large
number Wounded,
The public are familiar with the oh
jects and Proceedings of the State con
vention of Louisiana, which assembled
in New Orleans on the 6th of April,
1864, ostensibly for the. purpose of re
vising and amending the constitution
of the State, and after remaining- in
session two and - a half months, almost
a new constitution was produced which
was submitted to the people and adop
ted by the popular voice.
An attempt was, made during the
present month by some of the radical
members to revive the dead conven
tion, as it is called, for the purpose of
ratifying the amendment to the, Con
stitution of the United States, and the
President, Mr. R ii. Duren, was re
quested to issue a proclaination reeon
yoking the body. When the conven—
tion was first called only a portion
of the State was' within the Union
lines, and therefore a great number of
the parishes were unrepresented. Mr.
Durell taking the ground that when
the convention, on the 23c1 of June,
1864, adjourned, it ceased to have any
legal existence and its members were
out of office; refused to comply with
the demands of the radicals. A meet
ing .was then called, and a President
protein. appointed, as before stated,
who issued a proclamation reconvo-
Mug the dead- convention.
Governor Wells was solicited to
issue Writs - ordering elections to till the
vacancies in the restored parishes,
which ho consented to do, but fixed
the day of election on thu 3d of Sep
tember next. There were twenty-one
unrepresented pariShes in 1801, which
were entitled to fifty-two representa
tives. Tho radicals, however, were
determined to assemble on Monday
last ; but it is stated it vas their inten
tion to adjourn until some day subse
quent to the ono appointed for the
holding of the elections.
There were a number of the members
of the convention of 1864 who coinci
ded in the views taken by tho Presi,-
dent, and refused to meet with the
radicals: • Ono, Mr J. B. Bromley,
thought that no good could be accom
plished by reassembling, and ho ,is re
ported to have Said that he wont to
New Orleans with General Bittler to
fight against the rebels, and that he,
bad no idea how of joining in an in
sane and revolutionary movement.
Another, Judge Abell, of New Orleans,
hot only refused to join the so-called
conspirators, but in his judicial capaci
ty charged the grand jury to the effect
that the officer of State who endeavor
od to change the Goverpmont through
the action of the members of that con
vention subjected hiniself to a prose
cutioni for perjury. Ho branded its
members as apolitical - apostates and
military deserters ; the meanest and
basest of mankind, venal, cowardly,
and treacherous."
The President'pro tem. (Mr. R. It
Howell) of the reassembled convention
it is stated, had been on a visit to Wash
ington, and had received instructions
from radical members of Congress.
Immediately upon his return to New
Orleans a call was issued for a meeting
of tho citizens who wore in favor of
universal suffrage, of the reconstruc
tion policy Of Congress, and of amend
ing the constitution of the State to
give equal rights to all without dis-
tinction of color. This meeting was
held on Friday night last, and contrib
uted to add to the excitement which
was then prevailing.
The causes which created the dis
graceful riot on Monday last are thus
briefly set forth. Bad and horrifying
as it was, the radical journals of this
city were not content with the facts as
they came over the wires, but greatly
exaggerated the statements., One of
them announced that two hundred ne
groes had been killed, and that the hall
where the convention was held was
literally flooded with the blood of Uni
on men, while the simple fact was that
only two of the members had been
seriously WoUnded, One of whom has
since died. Another paper stated that
dead negroas were lying- about the
streets; thabfew were arrested, as they,
were being rapidly killed.
Another Aaaount
[From the Sew• Yolk Tim.]
WASHINGTON, July-31.—=1. NeW Or
loans correspondent furnishes, .imder
date of July 30, the following detailed
and connected account of the outbreak
in that city.
The convention met at. 12 o'clock,
twenty-six .members being present,
Judge R. K..Tiowell,.siuce misiug, in
the chair.
R. King Butler, MO missing, moved
an adjournment, of an hoUri• during
which time the sergeant-at-firths was
directed to compel the ' attendance of
absentees. The hall was densely crow
ded with freedmen and . Whites, the
former having armed themselves ex
tensively since their Friday's demon,
strations. Just before the adjourn
ment a procession containing about a
hundred freedmen, carrying a'United
States flari and marching the streets
'.kith martial mdSie, - arrived at the in
stitute; having had'a slight disturbance
on Canal street.
At this juncture the merchants all
over the city, fearing the coining riot,
closed their Stores. When the proces
sion entered the building a squad of po•
lice followed and attempted to Make
arrests. A scene of the wildest confu
sion followed. Pistols wore fired,
clubs and canes were mud, and brick
bats how in every direction. The
policemoii-Claim that they were merely
attempting to arrest the Canal-street
rioters above mentioned; but certain
it is that they mounted the platform,
where a small body of the members yet
remained, and one of them presented
a pistol upon their using offensive lan
The.policomen wore finally driven
out of the funding, leaving inside Gov.
Hahn, Judge . llowell, Mr. De Costio,
and other gentlemen, with Clark, at
tached to the State government, be
sides about fifty freedmen. Fortunate
ly Gov. Wells had just left the build
ing for the purpose of consulting with
General Baird aboutcalling out troops,
General Sheridan being out of town.
Up to this time ohe police oilicer had
been mortally wounded, one Severely,
others were slightly hurt with clubs
and pistol-shots. Police reinforcements
soon appeared in Canal street, and the
crowd of rioters accompanying the po
lice approached the institute and com
menced throwing atones through the
windows and firing pistols at any one
they cou!d see inside the building. At
the same time a detachment of police
tittacked a crowd of freedmen on Com
-111017 street, and after sharp firing and
Wounding several blacks, they drove
them away. This gave the police and
the mob which accompanied them full
control Of Dryades'street.
Several attempts were made by the
police to enter the building, but they
were repulsed: The ammunition of
the men in the institute seemed to give
out about this time, as they did not
fire any more. They attempted to
escape through the rear of the institute
into Bayonne street; but were met and
either arrested or shot down.
Mr. Dostio, who had the reputation
of being thOmost violont-liogro suffrage
man in the South, and who certainly
was the most violent speaker on Fri
day last, was killed while attempting
to get away.. I am told that a police
man shot him in the hack, and that af
ter 11(0'611 a crowd jumped on him and
cut hiM horribly with knives.
The . riot commenced at fifteen min
utes after twelve o'clock, and ended at
halt past three. At quarter before
three the military, under Gen. Baird,
appeared on Canal street, and finally
took possession,of the whole city.
NEw Oar.EANs.--.-Major General O. 0.
