Wednesday morning, Sept. 11, 1867.
rfa.The Lancaster County Republi
can Delegate Convention motlast wook,
but instead of patting in nomination a
county ticket, adopted the Crawford
County system and ordered an election'.
This change in the strong-hold ,of the
Republican party, shows that tho
masses of tho party aro determined to
defeat tho corruptiOnists and place in
office mon only who aro worthy of sup
port. •
Tho situation at Washington is
still of exciting interest. Grant was
obliged to acquiesce to the "superior
force" of the President's logic, as did
Stanton before him: The President is
master of the situation, until Congress
meets in November. Tho Radical jour
nals are berating their members round
ly for not meeting the question square
ly and depriving A. J. of the power he
is now using . They regret that Con
gress adjourned, and they lament still
more that that body adjourned without
getting rid of the greatest obstacle in
the way of their plan of reconstruction.
Does it not look exceedingly farcical
that Congress convened to make three
supplementary laws to the original re
construction act, just on the President's
account, and then adjourned without
accomplishing what they sought? No
vember next will develop some happy
scenes in' and about Washington.
SkirThoßadical journals assert that
it is not the intention of the leaders of
their party to force negro suffrage on
the Northern States. If they do not,
it will be because they see no use in
running the risk of losing their party
prestige, whiZh is not the case in the
South, where the white men co a great
extent aro disfranchised and all ne
groes over twenty-one aro enfranchis
ed without regard to - qualifications. If
negro suffrage is forced on the North
it will bo no greater infringement of
the Constitution than has already been
committed toward the South. The
ease stands thus: If the Radicals think
they can strengthen their party by
giving Northern negroes a vote, they
will do it in spite of everything, but if
they do not, then they will not. It is
not so much their love for the darkoy
that induces them to give him a vote
as it is their desire to use his vote for
their own purposes. Had not the no
grecs of Tennessee voted as they did,
how soon would they have been dis
The California Election.
The election in California took place
last week. , The Democratic party
elected the governor, State officers,
two of the three Congressmen, and a
majority of the; flogislature, thus secur
ing the election of a United States
Senator. This is a victory for the
Democrats,--brought about principally
by the bad conduct of the Republican
leaders. The Republican regular con
vention was controlled by , the corrup
tionists and they put in nomination for
Governer'a corrupt man. The honest
masses of the party nominated a sec
ond candidate, determined that defeat
would be more honorable to
than success with a corrupt man and
corrupt party leaders. The Democrats
contend they could have succeeded
even should the Republicans have had
but one candidate. The falling off on
the RepubliCan vote was large, thou
sands not going to the election and oth
ers possibly voting the Democratic

Republican Senatorial Conference.
' The Republican conferees of this dis
trict met at Lewistown on Friday last.
We give the - proceedings of the Confer
once in another column. .The confer
ence was well attended by the friends
of the several candidates, and "outsi
ders." Mr. Hall's friends were tho
most numerous, from the district and
from Harrisburg, hut the pins were put
up against him and they could'nt be
knocked down. Mr. McVitty of this
county appe'ared to have the inside
track . from the commencement of the
struggle. All were very favorably im
pressed with the man. He is a gentle
man, and go far as wo know a perfect
ly honest man, with abilities to make a
useful Senator. Mr. McYitty is a tan
ner, carrying
.on the business exten
sively in Clay township. Mr. J. K.
Robison, the other successful candi
date, is a -farmer in Juniata county.
-He was in the service during the war,
and has the reputation of being a per
fectly honest man.
Both partics have now their candi
dates in the field—two only can bo
elected, and as the district is a very
close ono, the candidates and their
friends will have to be busy. Mr. Mc-
Intyre of Perry, and Mr. Shngert of
Centre, they Democratic candidates,
are both good men and will' work to
m.l4istaken—the prominent gen
tleman who insists that Col. John J.
Patterson of Mifflin county has been
nominated for the House oI Represen
tatives and also for the State Senate
way-In a late issue the Philadelphia
Press asks the question, "Was the war
right ?" We thought it was during its
continuance and still think that the
principles which we of the North eon.,
tended for, were - right,' and for that
reason we, in the.beginning of the re
bellion linked ourself with the great
Union party and endorsed it until the
close. Its platform was our platform;
its candidates were our candidates,
from the President and Vice President
down. But the war over, the Union
party suddenly transformed itself into
the Republican party; the loaders ap
peared to have other objects in view
than the restoration of the Union, the
most important of which objects was
and is to-day the building up of their
party in the Southern States. The
more rabid of the loaders, not satisfied
with seeing slavery so successfully and
happily abolished, aro seeking now to
elevate the slaves them Selves to such a
standard that the white man shall be
their inferior, politically. This policy
we do not and can not endorse. We
were satisfied to see the slaves freed,
but 'we aro not 'satisfied to see thorn
made politically the peers of the white
man. If this had been made the avow
ed object /if the War we could not have
adV'oCated it, nor do we believe that
appeals or entreaties nor yet conscrip
tion could have filled the Union ranks.
In that aspect wo would have consid
ered the war wrong, for then it would
have been a war of political partisans
—the ono for, and the other against
the negro.
To expect a reconstruction of the
Union by building up a Certain party is
folly. The same spirit which united
the Union party during the war must
prevail in the ranks of the dominant
party of today. So long as its leaders
look to their own aggrandizement—so
long as they look to the success of their
party by disfranchising their opponents
and enfranchising the negro whom they
can induce to vote for them by the ob
ject of reward, just so long will that
party meet with a steady and increas
ing opposition. The Union can only
be reconstructed by throwing aside all
jealousies, all animosities, all rivalries,
and all sectionalisms. Who can ex
pect a reconstruction that will be final
where the opinions of the people aro
.checked from free expression by the
military; and how can the wants of a
people be made known where all the
avenues through which they might be
made known, are hushed and held in
subjection ?
A war can only be considered right
when the principles for which it was
fought aro practically enforced. If
the principles of our recent struggle
were to enforce negro supremacy and
keep those who fought for the South in
subjection, then we are right. in doing
so now, but if such wore not the prin
ciples, then we are wrong. The war
could not have been fought upon any
such principles, and is it not wrong to
insult the memories of our fallen he
roes, who died "for the Union," by car
rying out such a policy We cannot
believe that our living soldiers will
agree that they fought for, the negro
to rule, but the events that have trans
pired during the last two years, while
under the domination of radical moo,
point too plainly to this painful con
clusion. Had the negro been left out
of the reconstruction question, and bad
the Radicals not been permitted to
govern the Union party, all would
have been well, but so long as they
aro allowed to rule, we can have noth
ing but discord. , The war principles
were right, but the Radical principles are
wrong, and we have tried them long
enough to experience that such is the

Proclamation by the- President
WASHINGTON, September 8.
By the President of the United Staten of
WHERE" In ;the month of July,
Anno Domini 1861', theitwo Houses of
Congress, with extraordinary unanimi
ty, solemnly declared that the war
then existing was not waged on the
part of the Government in any spirit
of oppression, nor for any purpose of
conquest or subjugation, nor purpose
of overthrow or interfering with the
rights or established institutions of the
States, but to defend and maintain the
supremaoy of the Constitution, and to
preserve' the Union with all the digni
ty, equality and rights of the several
States unimpaired, and that as soon as
these objects should be accomplished
the war ought to cease; and, whereas,
the President of the United States, on
the Bth day of December, A. D. 1863,
%and on the 26th day of March, A. D.,
1864, did, with objects of suppressing
the then existing robellion,of inducing
all persons to return to their loyalty,
and of restoring the authority of the
United States, issue proclamations of
fering amnesty and pardon to all per
sons who had directly or indirectly
participated in the then existing rebel
lion, except as in those proclamations
was specified and reserved; and,
whereas, the President of the United
States did, on the 29th day of Mav, A.
D. 1864, issue a further proclamation
with the same objects beihre mention
ed, and to the end that the authority
of the Government of the United States
might be restored, and that peace, or
der and freedom might be established,
and the President did,'hy the said last
proclamation, proclaim and declare
that he thereby granted to all persons
who had directly or indirectly partici
pated in the then existing rebellion,
except as therein excepted, amnesty
and pardon, with the restoration of all
rights of property except us to slaves,
and except in certain eases where le
gal proceedings had been instituted,
but upon condition that such persons
should take and subscribe an oa'h
therein prescribed, which oath should
be registered for permanent preserva
tion ; and, whereas, in and by said last
mentioned proclamation of the 29th
day of May, A. D. 1865, fourteen ex
tensive clauses of persons therein spe
cially described, were altogether ex
cepted and excluded from the benefits
thereof; and, whereas, the President
of the United States did, on the 2d day
of April, A. D. 1866, issue a proclama
tion declaring that the insurrection
was at an end and was thenceforth to
be so regarded; and, whereas, there
now exists no orgsnized armed resis
tance of misguided citizens or others
to the authority of the United States
in the States of Georgia, South Caroli
na, 'Virginia, North Carolina, Tennes
see, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas,
Mississippi, Florida and Texas, and
the laws can be sustained and enforced
therein by the proper civil authority,
State or Federal, and the people of
said States are well and loyally dis
posed, and have conformed, and if per
mitted to do so, will conform in their
legislation to the condition of affairs
growing out of the amendment to the
Constitution of the United States pro
hibiting slavery within the limits and
jurisdiction of the United States; and,
whereas, there no longer exists any
reasonable ground to apprehend with
the States which were involved . in
the late rebellion a renewal thereof, or
any unlawful resistance by the people
of said States to the Constitution and
laws of the United States; and whereas,
as large standing armies, military oecu
pation, martial law, military tribunals,
and the suspension of the privilege of
the writofhabeas corpus,and the right of
trial of jury,' are in time of peace dan-.
gerous to public liberty, incompatible
with tho'individual rights of the cit
izen, contrary to the genius and spir
it of our free institutions, and exhaus
,of the national, resources, and
ought not, therefore, to be sanctioned
or allowed to except in cases of actual
necessity for repelling invasion or sup-
- pressing insurrection or rebellion ; and,
whereas, a retaliatory or . vindictive
policy, attended by unnecessary dis
qualifications, pains, penalties, confis
cations and disfranchisement, now• as
always could only tend to binder re
conciliation among the people and Na
tional restoration, while it must seri
ously embarrass, obstruct and repress
the popular energies and National in
dustry and, enterprise ; and, whereas,
for these reasons it is now deemed es.
sential to the public welfare and to the
more perfect restoration of Constitu
tional law and order that the said last
mentioned proclamation, so as afore
issued on the 29th day_ of May, A.
D. 1865, should be modified, and that
the full• and beneficent pardon conce
ded thereby ehould be opened and fur
ther extended to a large number of
persons who by its aforesaid exceptions
have been hitherto excluded from exe
cutive clemency; .
Now, therefore, bo it known, that I,
Andrew Johnson, President of the Uni
ted States, do hereby proclaim and de
clare that the full pardon described in
the said proclamation of the 29th day of
May, A. D. 1865 1. shall henceforth be
I opened and extended to all persons
who, directly or indirectly, participa
ted in the late rebellion, with the res
toration of all privileges, immunities
and rights of property except as to
property with regard to slaves, and
except in eases of legal proceedings
under the laws of the United States,
but upon this condition, nevertheless,
that each person who shall seek
to avail himself of this proclama
tion shall take and subscribe to the
following oath, and shall cause the
same to be registered for permanent
preservation, in the same manner and
with the same effect with the oath
proscribed in the said proclamation of
the 29th day of May, 1865, namely :
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) in
.the presence of Almgbty God, that I
will henceforth faithfully support, pro
tect and defend the Constitution of
the United States and the Union of
the Stases thereunder, and that I will
in like manner abide by and faithfully
support'all laws and proclamations that
have been made during-the late rebel
lion with reference to the emancipation
of slaves, so help me God." '
The following persons and no oth
ers are excluded from the benOfits of
• this proclamation, and of the said proc
lamation of the 29th day of May, A. D.
1363, namely
First, The chief or pretended chief
