    The iluntingdon Journal,
Wiinesday Morning, February 15, 1871.
We commend the following estimate of
the New York Tribune to the attention of
those over-sanguine Democrats who have
Made up their minds that they are going
to elect a Democratic President in 1872.
In thir view the TrMune has been liberal
in its allowance of States to the Democra
cy; and there are few even of that party
who know anything of the politics of the
country who will deny that the estimate is
a fair one.
We have heard it remarked that should
the elections of 1872 copy those of 1870, a
Democrat would be chosen President. But
that is a miscalculation, as the following
table will show :
Rep. States. Electors Dem. States. Electors.
6 Connecticut
Massachussetts.....l2 New York
New Hampshire... 4 Delaware
Rhode Island 3 Maryland
Vermont 4 Virginia
New Jersey 8 North Carolina
Pennsylvania 26 Georgia
South Carolina..... 6 Alabama
Mississippi 8 West Virginia.
Louisiana 7 Kentucky

We have assumed 150,000 as the prob
able ratio of representation under the new
census; a higher would reduce the number
of electoral votes, as a lower would in
crease it, but neither would materially af
fect the majority.
Missouri was not carried by the Demo
crats in 1870, but by the Schurz and
Gratz Brown Republicans; but we assume
that enough of these will probably go clear
over to put the State against us in 1871.
We trust they will get sick of their strange
company, and come back in season for
Connecticut was carried by the Demo
crats in the April State election of 1868,
but went Republican in the ensuing Pres
idential contest, as she probably will in
Oregon went Democratic in 1870 by a
far smaller majority than at her State
election of 1868, yet, when she came to
vote for President, she gave Seymour but
164 majority over Grant; while California,
(also Democratic in her preceding State
election,) went for Grant by 514 majority.
We regard both of them with Nevada, as
very doubtful for 1872.
Virginia, Indiana, and Alabama were
barely carried Democratic in 1870, and
may all be recovered upon the full vote al
ways east for President. So may North
Carolina, especially if the Democracy turn
Gov. Holden out of office, as they are
quite likely to do.
Of the States we have placed in the Re
publican column, only Pennsylvania, Flor
ida and Arkansas, are at all questionable.
Arkansas gave somej,ooo Republican ma
jority on Congress, though . we threw away
two of the three Representatives in Con
gress by personal feuds; but the Legisla
ture is very strongly Republican. Penn
sylvania was very close on the popular vote
last October, but, if a fair allowance is
made for the districts distracted by person
al feuds, there is a Republican majority.
Florida is disputed, but Republican by a
close vote.
We drifted astern much further in 1862,
than in 1870, but more than recovered our
boat ground when we came to a Presiden
tial year, when almost every legal voter
comes to the front. We purpose to repeat
the dose in 1872.

Evening Telegraph, made an explanation
of his action in the Chorpenning claim case.
His story will of course be accepted for its
full face value, but we hope that Pennsyl

Congress who are so "over-zealous" or
"confiding" as to present resolutions which
are officially construed to require the pay
ment of nearly $500,000 of the public

intendent of Soldiers' Orphans, on the 2d

Geary, which was accepted by the Gover

a handsome compliment to the Colonel for
his unwavering fidelity to the trust imposed
upon him. The Governor appointed Hon.
J: P. Wickersham, Superintendent of Com
mon Schools, to fill the vacancy. This
unites the two Departments under one
head. No better selection could have been

C. Everhart, of Martinsburg, Blair county,
as a suitable Democratic candidate for Au
ditor General. The Colonel is one of the
best men in the Democratic party, and
we would be sorry to see him set up to be
knocked down by some good Republican.

Our Washington Correspondence,
WASHINGTON, D. C. Feb. 6, 1871
Your correspondent was unavoidably
prevented from indulging in his "chit
chat" with your readers, in the last issue
of the JOURNAL. Although he is well
aware that they have lost nothing by the
omission, he will endeavor to make the in
fractions of his promise "few and far be-
As the sine die adjourment of the 41st
Congress approaches, there is a general
bustle in the Senate and I - louse of Repre
sentatives, resulting from an anxiety to
perfect as much of the legislation on hand
as possible.
In the Senate ; the bill for the repeal of
the income tax, (of which Senator Scott
has had charge) was passed some days ago.
To this action of the Senate, _the Hous e
has taken exception, on the ground, as held
by that Branch, that it is a measure affecting
the revenue, and must, as provided in the
Constitution, originate in the House of
Representatives. The bill was returned
to the Senate, and on the parliamentary
question at issue, a committee of confer
ence has been appointed by Senate and
House, to settle the point.
'When the bill was returned to the Sen
ate, Senator Scott very clearly demonstra
ted that the House had misapprehended
the purport of the bill. It is not an origi
nal proposition to raise revenue, but one to
reduce taxation—that, if the position
taken by the House is tenable, then much
of the legislation for years past, in grant
ing private claims, in giving subsidies, and
in many other ways had been in violation
of law.
This question of the constitutional
power of the Senate is not a new one.
The committee of conference will, it is to
be hoped, define the prerogative of the
House, and propose some rule embodying
its view of the matter at issue, by which
both Houses will be guided hereafter.
There has been a very decided expres
sion throughout the country in favor of
this repeal of the income tax. During
the last session, your Senator advocated
the total abrogation of this exaction, but
in which he was only partially successful.
At thissession, he introduced a bill having
for its object the entire wiping out of the
tax. In the debates, then and now, on
this question, he has covered the whole
ground. His speeches have been given to
the public. They meet general approval
here, and there is no doubt they express
the sentiment of a majority of the people
of the United States.
The House of Representatives having
passed the bill granting pensions to the
soldiers and sailors of the war 1812, the
Senate has passed the same with some
amendments in which the House has non
concurred and asked a committee of confer
ence. The bill, as it passed the Senate,
requires the service to have been, at least ,
for two months. It gives the penison to
widows who were married at the
time of the war, excluding those
who have since remarried. It also
extends the provisions of the bill
to the widows of Revolutionary soldiers.
This pension is an act of simple justice.
The House of Representatives has pass
ed the bill giving to each soldier of the
late war for the suppression of the rebel
lion 160 acres of land—the title to be ac
quired under the provisions of the Home
stead Law, but which provisions have been
so modified as to allow a deduction of the
time of military service from the required
time of occupation of the land before a
Patent issues. This bill is now in com
mittee in the Senate, and will, undoubted
ly become a law. In the Senate, it will
be advocated and voted fur by the Pennsyl
vania Senators. The opportunity presen
ted to the "brave and true, who faced the
music" in the late struggle for the life of the
Nation, to secure a home for themselies
and their children, will be embraced by
thousands. It will be an additional evi
dence that we live under not only the
best but the most generous Government
that has ever been established among the
inhabitants of earth.
The attention of the country is now di
rected to the investigation of the alleged
outrages in the Southern States, by the
Select Committee ef . the Senate, of which
committee Senator Scott is chairman. At
the close of the war, when, by the triumph
of our armies in the field, the rebellion
against the Government of the United
States had been suppressed, conquered
traitors had no claim upon the clemency
of that Government other than that which
springs from considerations of mercy and
Christian charity. In the spirit of that
forgiveness, inculcated in the teachings
of our religion, the vanquished were
spared the gallows and confiscation, and
bidden "go and sin no more." The law
of self-preservation, however, suggested
the guarding against a recurrence of an
effort to re-inaugurate a rebellion for the
subversion of the Government. From
time to time, the stringency of these laws
enacted for the public safety have been
relaxed, until now, within the very brief
period of less than six years after the sup
pression of the rebellion, a general amnesty
is proclaimed throughout the land. The
history of the world does not present so
striking an example of lenity towards those
who, having plotted treason, arrayed them
selves in armed hostility to their govern
ment, in defence of which so much of
blood and treasure had been expended.
In view of the enormity of the crime
and the mercy extended, it was reasonable
to expect that the rebels of the South
would accept the situation, and act in good
faith in the renewal of their allegiance.
Has such been the course pursued by
them ? That is the question to be an
swered by this investigation. If it be
true, as we are told, that, in certain por
tions of the Southern States, a man who
was loyal to his country in the dark days
of strife cannot live in safety—that such
have been murdered in cold blood, and
their property destroyed, that the perpe
trators cannot be punished, for the reason
that the law cannot be administered, owing
to the general sympathy for its violators—
then it must be the purpose of this inves
tigation to propose the proper legislative
remedy. But the country should have
the proof of the truth or falsity of the
charges preferred. If such organizations
as the Ku-Klux-Klan exist and cannot be
suppressed, (or will not be suppressed,) by
the local authorities, the government owes
it to its legal adherents that they shall be
protected by its strong arm.
The Georgia Senatorial difficulty has
been partially disposed of. Mr. Hill, one
of the Senators elect, has been sworn in.
The ease of Mr. Miller, another claimant
for a seat, it is supposed, will be determin
ed to-day. If he be admitted, then for
the first time since 1860, every seat in the
Senate of the United States will be filled.
The lovers of fun are all agog on the
subject of the approaching Carnival, which,
you are aware, is to come off on the 20th
and 21st inst. We are to have all kinds of
shows, "free, gratis, for-nothing," from a
"Goat Race" to a "Grand Tournament
There will be an imposing Military dis
play for the serious, and an exhibition of
"Fantastics" for the merry. In truth,
this bids to be a novel and highly interest
ing affair, to witness which will repay a
visit to Washington.
Feb. 11, 1871
The efforts being made in Congress, to es
tablish a National System of Education is,
certainly, rue that should cowbell,' itself I
to the patriotic, thinking men 6f the coun
try. It will hardly be credited,(yct it is
true) that of the 38,000,000 ef people in
the United States, nearly 5,000 oof that
number can neither read nor w rte. When
it is admitted, that the general telligence
of the necessary to tl perpetua
tion of a Republican film of , erninent,
it becomes a'question of vital portance,
that Congress should legislate al as to se
cure the general education of the people.
It is true, in the Northern and Western
States, such Congressional acti' is not
required. In .Pennsylvania, sitnalised as
she is by a system of Common Schools,
through the instrumentality of which
classes can be educated, and which system
is sustained by the munificent libeialitY of'
her tax-payers, such legislation is not ne
cessary. But this is not the situation of
all the States. We must not close our eyes
to the fact, that, by the overthrow of the
Institution of Slavery, and the enfranchise
ment of the colored race in the Southern
States, a vast number have been made par
ticipants in the Government of the country,
who have never had the advantages of ed
ucation. In the days of human bondage
in that portion of the Union, it was a penal
offense to educate the colored man ; pre
ventive State laws having been enacted, on
the principle, that 'slavery and knowledge j
are antagonistic. Now, that the shackles!
have been stricken from the limbs of the
slave, the opposite principle, that intelli
gence is necessary to freedom, looms up
and demands the attention of our legisla
tors. The freedmen must be educated, and
it is the duty of the National Government
to see to it, that the facilities be afforded
to them for acquiring an education.
The House of Representatives has a bill
under discussion, which, (or sotua, one of
a smilar character,) it is to be hoped, will
become a law. By its provisions, "a di
rect tax of fifty millions of dollars is im
posed apportioned among the States, the
sum raised in each State to be expended
for the purposes of education in that State;
but any State may, in lieu of paying the
tax, provide for the suitable instruction of
all children within its borders; and if the
President be satisfied, at the expiration of
twelvemonths, that there is established in
that State a suitable System of Common
Schools, no further steps shall be taken for
the appointment of officers or the assess
ment of the tax thereon." It will thus
be seen, that it is not designed for Penn
sylvania, or any other State in which pro
per measures have been adopted for the
education of the people of all classes.
This bill encounters the violent opposi
tion of the Democratic members of the
House. They would not have the colored
man enlightened, for the simple reason that
they would not lift him up from the deep
of ignorance, in which slavery bad kept
him, to the plane on which the white man
stands. What more convincing evidence
of the sympathy of that party for an In
stitution, to uphold which the late cruel
war was inaugurated, and the suppression
of which was a result of the triumph of
loyalty over treason.
The bill granting pensions to soldiers
and sailors of the war of 1812, has been
reported from a Committee of conference,
to which it had been referred. The report
has been adopted in the Senate and House,
and the bill only awaits the signature of
the President to become a law. The bill,
as passed, provides pensions to the surviv
g -
in officers and enlisted and drafted men,
including . militia and volunteers, who
served sixty days in the army or navy in
the Revolutionary war, or in the war of 'l2,
and were honorably discharged, and to the
strviving widows of such officers and en
listed and drafted men, pensions are to be
at the rate of eight dollars a month.
The most important event of the week,
has been the nomination to the Senate, by
the President, of a commission, to act
jointly with one of a similar character, on
the part of the English Government, to
settle the claims of the respective Govern
ments, one upon the other. • The Senate
has confirmed the nominations, so that
is to be expected that the Alabama Claims,
the Fishing difficulties, and all other mat
ters at issue touching claims will be peace
ably adjusted.
