The Result iu the County.
The whole Republican county ticket
is elected. Some ot the candidates
have a less veto than others, but sufli
cieudy large to secure their election.
We tried to defeat some of them, but
we faded—in this wo were no more
unfortunate Than were, some Republi
cans last year. We were defeated in an
open fight,.and we surrender and ac

Mr. Morrel for Con rocs was beaten
where Johnston should have at least
1400 majority.. It must be remember
ed that Mr. Morrel has upward of two
thousand men in his employ. He wil!
no doubt make a good member.
Wharton and Brown are also both
elected—the oflieial returns will show
by what majorities. The candidates we
supported made a very respectable run
in this county as their votes will show.
Indeed we could not look for a larger
vote for them, with a strong organiza
tion and hard work against them. The
United States Senator question saved

shonlil advise harmony, for he should

how wrong Ale may be, will have

Congressmen such as Stevens, Sumner,
_Kelly and others, attempt to carry out
their threats; they will find the Presi
dent prepared to resist them to the
bitter end L---then will commence what
every good man should strive to avoid.
What Next ?
The Republican party has triumph
ed in all the States in which elections
were held last week. The present
Congress is largely Republican—the
next will be by a still larger majority.
What next? Will the extreme Radi
cals, Stevens, Sumner, Kelly & Co.,
control the actions of Congress, or will
the less Radical members who are in
the majority act so as to meet the ex
pectations- of the largo majority of vo
ters who favored their election ? We
hope for peace and harmony.
It was reported last week that
President Johnson bad communicated
sonic questions to Attorney General
Btamherry, in regard to the Constitu.
tionality of the present Congress, and
whether he &timid transmit his next
message to it or not. The report was
found to he a "hoax," gotten up Pr
speculating purposes. Tim people can
have no &Airs about the President, He
is right and be will make himself ap,

Another Civil . War,
Scarcely have we emerged from a
war of four bloody years duration un
til we hear throats of another to sur
pass it in magnitude and terror. Lead
ing men on both sides of the two ex
treme parties agitate the question, and
every day but increases the virulence.
Patriotic mon discountenance the ex
treme opinions of Stevens, Sumner,
Forney, Kelley and others, who make
universal negro suffrage the sole basis
of Southern representation, while oth
ers discountenance the extreme no
tions which would have the President
to di:iclaim and refuse to recognize it
duly elected Northern Congress. To
the Radical notions of the former the
Conservative party is opposed, and
also to the extrema :Ind revolutionary
notions of the latter. The people can
only look to the course of the Pro.si
dont. Ile must; hold his pusition be
tWeeti those two extremes, or else he
is lost. Should lie 'assist thO leading
Radicals in their scheme to abolish the
Tights of the States, ho will lose the
confidence of those who have hereto
fore supported him; and shbuld he ac
cord to the• opinions of those who
would actuate him to discßtim the duly
elected Northern members, he would
only excite the people's animosity,
till further. There is but ono course
left for President Johnson, and that is
the medium course between the two
extremes. Wo are not one of those
who consider the results of the
/ions an endorsement of the leading
Radicals in Congress. Their ideas are
as much scouted as those of the oppo
sition extremists who would make the
Northern Congress an illegal ono.
Wo do not believe that President
Johnson will not recognize the North•
ern Congress. He must have as much
faith in the people of the North and
their representatives as he may have
in the people of tho South and their
representatives. We believe that the
mass of the Representatives just elec
ted to Congress are as loyal as over,
and we can repose confidencein thorn.
tires to take either extreme, but to
bold on to the conciliatory medium. ,
The majority of those recently elected
have been elected on the strength of
the Constitutional amendments, which
they have been made to believe are the
conditions of reconstruction, Wo be
lieve that when they assemble they
will commit themselves to that policy,
which the last Congress did net do,
and if there is anything objectionable
they will have it modified, or if any
thing misunderstood they will have it
explained. Our people do not want
negro suffrage made the condition, and
their representatives so understand it,
and if the proposed amendments do
not enforce it then they will make
them the condition. We take it as
settled, that some of the conditions of
those amendments will have to be
adopted by the South before they can
be admitted, and we are under the im
pression that President Johnson will so
take the voice of the people.
We repeat that the only way to
avoid another civil war is to hold on
to the medium policy, which will be
io the Constitutional Amendments if
they are so modified or explained as to
avoid Radical misconstruction.

THE STATE ELECTIONS
The results of the late elections show
very clearly that the contest has been
almost precisely as it was two 'years
ago, between the Democratic and Uni
on Parties. The differences between
COngtess and the President have had
no perceptible influence upon the par
ty divisions of the past flan• or five
years. Nor has the Philadelphia Con
vention, strong as was the impression
which it made at the outset upon the
public mind, produced any marked of
feet upon political organizations in the
several States where elections have
been hold. On the one side is the old
Democratic vote,—increased or dimin
ished somewhat hero and there by Id
eal influences. and on the other is the
Union majority, stronger on the whole
than ever before, and not at all affect
ed either by the strong appealsmade
to its judgment and reason, or by the
influence and patronage of the General
Government brought to bear upon , it.
It is undoettedly true that the whole
power. Of the Administration has been
thrown against the Republican party;
yet that power, great as it alivays is,
has been able to effect absolutely no
thing in the general result. The reason
of this is. lautid in the fact that it has
been thrown in favor of the Democratic
party, as organized and directed during
the war. It has not been used with
primary regard to the principles and
The Philadelphia Convention set forth
what we believe to be the Administra
tion platform on the subject of Restor
ation ; but that platform was not made
the basis of political actiott by the Ad
ministration itself or anybody else. It
was simply surrendered to the Demo
cratic Party as a stepping-stone to
power. The leaders of that party
seized upon it for that use. Their
subsequent action proved conclusively
that their motives in accepting and in
dorsing it were partisan—that they
sought, not so much the restoration of
the Union as the reorganization and
reinstatement of their own party. Tho
Philadelphia Convention gave the
country a basis of restoration upon tire
principles settled by tine war—and to this
the South gave its unanimous, sincere
and cordial assent. If the Democrats
of the _ Nor th_hati_aceetatad_
same sincere desire for the public good
it would have been indorsed and reaf
firmed ity the people. But they did
nothing of the sort. They took it as
part of their own stock in-trade. They
seized it as the ladder upon which they
were to climb back again into the high
places front which they had been ex
pelled. Designed as a great national
movement, for the attainment of na
tional endS, it became, in their hands,
a tool for the attainment of a partisan
purpose—for the resumption of official
place and party power. Unfortunately
the friends of the Administration lent
themselves to the project. Democrat
ic Committees and Democratic candi
dates repaired to ‘Vashington and de
manded of the Administration the aid
of its patronage and its influence for
their party purposes, 7 -and it was very
largely accorded to thorn. Democrats
of Copperhead antecedents were ap
pointed to office,—not universally, per
haps often through inadvertence and
lack of information,—but upon the
application of Democratic icaciek, far
more anxious to restore their party to
power than to serve the Adnuinistra•.
Lion or save the Union. The same
men, acting from the sante motives,
seemed Democratic nornimaions, for
State offiees and for Congress,. where
ver they had chances ,of success, and
the whole current of political action
ran in the same direction.
The oaturttl effect of all this was to
produce up in the public mind the
conviction that; the aim of the Admin
istration was to restore the Democrat
ic Party to power • and as this convic
tion grew the political power of the
Administration dwindled until it, ab
solutely ceased, as the result sTows, to
have any perceptible influence upon
the elections whatever,.
There is one thing upon which the
people have made up their minds, and
neither the President nor any other
power can change it, and that is that
the restoration of the Union shall not
be intrusted to the men who tried to
destroy it by war, nor to those who
failed to resist that attempt by all the
means in their power. This determine- .
tion may not be logical, nor constitu
tional, nor strictly in accordance with
the rights ofStatos and sections ; but
it is instinctive and unconquerable.
Once let it he distinctly understood that
the Democratic Party ie not to bo re
stored to its old ascendency and the
people will be liberal, just and gener
ous in their adjustment of all political
differences ; but so long as that point
is left in doubt, they will be exacting
and intolerant upon all. The late
elections show that they intend to
have guarantees upon that point first;
and nothing is likely to be gained, in
any quarter or by any party, by . re
sisting and defying their will,

Gen, Butler's Programme--Impeaoh
inent of the President.
Gan. Butler is bidding high for the
post of generalissimo to the devastat
ing movement which the prophetic
Brownlow has foretold. It is quite :
plain that the commander of the
eachusetts militia is not entirely satis
fied with his own military record.—
Ho yearns for an opportunity of prov
ing that Gem Grant' underrates his
capacity as a strategist, and that the
public undervalue his courage and de
votion as a' soldier. Next time he in
tends to be Master, not subordinate.—
He intends to have the direction of af
fairs—not to be subject to Others' di
rection. Hence he has taken time by
the forelock, and is employing himself
energetically in fomenting the trouble
which ho proposes to quell with the
torch and the sword. He secs no
chance of obtaining laurels save in an
other civil war, and he is laboring
wildly, recklessly, with an utter indif
ference to principle, and at no pecunia
ry sacrifice, to render that calamity
As a mere agitator it must be con
fessed that Gee. Butler is head and
shoulders nboVe the mediocre host of
talkers who are doing the work of the
extremists throdghout the country.—
Brownlow has Butler's malignity, but
not a tithe of his power. Even Thad
deus Stevens and Wendell Phillips aro
distanced in• the struggle by the Gen
eral front Massachusetts. These men
predict a renewal of strife; he urges it,
declares it desirable, and pledges him
self when it shall come, to sweep all
opponents "from the face of the earth
as a cobWeb' is swept away before the
rising of the morning sun!' They in
sist that in certain contingencies Con
gressintiY rid itself of Executive op
position by impeachment; he swears
that Andrew Johnson shall be impeach
ed, and has actually drafted the in
dictment upon which the President is
to be tried, Convicted, and deposed.
Thus, Butler is'far . uhead of all compet.
-1 utton • Ilis'boldneks 'bight command
adMiration could j'we but forget his
military history. His pntramme .
might:l6e acdepted as synonymous with
victory, if it wore not remembered
that his generalship has invariably led
to disaster and defeat.
But Butler says the President shall
be impeached ! Well, what arc the
Aunds of impeachment, as stated by
the prosecuting. General in his Cincin
nati speech ? Let the counts be stated
in their order: (1.) Attempts "to
bring Congress into public hatred, rid
icule and contempt." (2.) Corrupt use
of "the power of removal and appoint
ments." 3.) Neglect to execute laws
of officers after the Senate had refused
to confirm them (5.) Corrupt use of
the pardoning power. (6.) Termina
ting the war by proclamation instend
of treaty. Now it is manifest that
with the single exception of the last of
the allegations wo have enumerated,
there is not ono which a partisan oppo
sition has not at any time in the last
half century been ready to bring
against the Execntive of the day. If
these aro to he pretexts for impeaching
a Pr'esident—if the gravest proceeding
known to the Constitution may be un,
dertakon on the hearsay charges of
partisan enemies—what President
might not bare been tried and depo
sed? The ehargeS themselves are
identical With charges which have been,
preferred and reiterated in every po,
litical campaign of which we hare Im
membraneei.hat until Gen. Butlerded
icated himself to sensational oratory
and an heroic...ambition, who ever
dreamed of piishlng t'itlgar elaMor and
partisan hate . to 'the:point of impeach.
!pent ?:•• Why, at this rate, ?a ny Presi•
dent•tnight be got rid' of by impeach
ment, if :Congress Were controlled by
his opponents.. In those days of angry
political . Warfitre, not tho purest or
wisest or 'mak discreet of Presidents
could escape" accusations of neglect,
corruption' and misuse of power; and
if Congress, being opposed to him,
chose to arraign him before "the Court
of Impeachment of the United States,"
lie might he summarily deprived of
office and power. Nay, without being
formally cobvicted—siMply by arraign
ing him and then postponing trial—a
partisan majority might Shake off a
troublesome Executive; for, according
to Gen. Butler, from the moment the
act of impeachment commences, the
person impeached "ceases to be able to
exorcise the duties of that office until
he is acquitted." And acquitted we
may be sure be never would be, if such
charges as those which Butler recites
justifies the deposition which he de
eres is in store for President John-
The Butler programme goes yet
further. It provides for the Impeach
ment of tho President ; but it also pre
suppoies resistance, and pfoliides for
maintaining the authority of Congress
by force of firma. This is the conting
ency upon which the hero of the Dutch
Clap rests his. most cherished aspira
tions ;- InipeaChincnt; as ho designs it,
will be valuable Chiefly as the begin
ning of an armed struggle for the mas
tery, for out of the contest he hopes to
emerge Military Dictator!,
what Gen. Butler aims at. His =hi.
Lion imggests a short out to the Presi
dency, -To reach that be is prepared

tton, and'eo - ',rayszlrate.an 'ra of hot-
rem; tbat'tlie lights of States maY . be
destroyed, and red-capped Radicalism
reign lord of all.
Extravagant as those plans aro, no
thoughtful man can witness their pro
mulgation and advocacy without anx
iety. They are indicative of evil, and .
evil only. They are illustrative of the
dangerous stage which our national
politica has reached—a stage in which
bloodshed, anarchy are foreshadowed
as means necessary . to advancement,
and the popular mind, is familiarized
with principles and measures utterly
at variance with the constitutional
order and liberty which have been the
American's proudest boast. The error
—might we not say the crime 7—is not
confined to Gen. Butler and those who
think and work with him. There are
two schools of extremists in the land,
and the.menaces of one provoke the
•threats and intensify the bitterness of
the other. The violence that would
solve the difficulty between the Execu
tive and Congress by the impeachment
of the former, has its counterpart in
the recklessness which assails the au
thority of Congress, and proposes to
secure to the South admission • at the
point of the bayonet. Both aro fool
ish ; both are wicked ; both are fraught
With peril to the peace of the country.
They who counsel the President to
treat the law-making power as a"lin inp
Congress," to put down by force 'a
body which he has officially recogni
zed, and to disregard as illegal a body,
whose rights are'at least as valid as
his own—counsel him to suicide. On
the other hand, they who contend that
the President should be impeached be
cause, as partisans, they oppose his
policy, distrust his integrity, and chafe
under his exercise of power, would de
stroy. the guarantees of constitutional
liberty, and invest a partisan majority
in Congress with a power that would
be fatal to our form of government.
The ultraism does not essentially dif
fer in the two cases. It takes oppo
site directions, but in both instances
its tendency is toward bloodshed and
anarchy. Only the good sense and
moderaticin of the country . Can avert
the calamities with which :both forms
of violence arc pregmrt.

try him now in a peace court is to ad

war. The only question which nation
al self respect appears to me to admit
is, what shall be done iwith, the traitor's ,

These suggestions are not without
force, though we do not think them
wholly just. We do not 'see that any
doubt as to the necesy and justice
of war for the suppression of rebellion
is necessarily implied by trying the
leader of that rebellion for treason.
But it is perfectly fair to look to the
probable result and efi'eCt of a trial be- -
fore deciding upon subjecting him to
that process. It' he could be arraingod
on charge of treason, convicted by
jury, under the charge of a dignified
Court, and sentenced to the punish - -
ment prescribed, by law, something
would doubtless have been done to vin
dicate the law by judicial process, and
to "make treason odious." The prin
ciple would also be established that an
attempt to secede from the Union,s4-
ported by arms, is' treaSen, and thus
the right of secession claimed py South
ern States would be judicially over - - .
On the other hand it must be brirne
in mind that his conviction betore a jit
ry cannot be damned absolutely cer
tain—and the chances of failure, both
demand consideration. There are two
classes of persons who do not believe
Davis guilty of treason; (1) the ex
treme Radicals who hold with. Thad.
Stevens that be established a de facto
government villa • we overthrow by
war, and that he is therefore, only a
prisoner of war and not amenable to
our Courts as a traitor,and (2) the.the
oretical secessionists who hold that
acts done against the Government un
der State authority cannot be punish
el as crimes. It is certainly : possible
that one or more, out of both these
classes, might happen to be upon the
Jury, as it is not quite easy to see
how they could . bo excluded without
betraying a very palpable purpose to
pack the Jury. And in that event,Davis
would very probably be acquitted, Or
not convicted, of treason.
