is an excellent opportunity for some good
printer to get into a paying position. The
Press has a large circulation and its adver
tising patronage is good.
lir - The editor of the Monitor announces.
in last week's issue, that he has given
up the idea of getting a power press at
this time. We are sorry that the Demo
cratic party has not r es ponded more liber
ally to his calls for material aid. Mr.
Cornman hai done much for the Monitor
and more for the Democratic party, and a
favorable response to his requests for ad
vauoement was to be expected.
tieL,The Bedford Gazette gives notice
that a lost ear drop will be restored if the
fair owner, will apply at that office and, by
way of reward, kiss the "devil." The "one
more unfortunate" requests us to say that
she considers it a great imposition to ask
her to go to h-ades to kiss an imp, but
steep as it is she would be willing to yield
the unreasonable demand, if she were not
afraid that the local would undertake to
"play the devil."
.The Beaver Radical says : "A
scamp has been swindling the farmers in the
eastern part of Washington county by
claiming to be the agent of a cement com
pany, and through representations they are
induced to sign certain papers which turn
out to be negotiable notes, and the swin
dler then disposes of them. Let the peo
ple of other sections be on the look out
Judging from the Common Pleas record
of our last court the same kind of a dodge
has been recently practiced in this county.
Our farmers would do well to keep a sharp
eye on all "agents," and put their signa
tures to no papers whatever.
THE DEMOCRATIC PRESS AND THE
The Democratic press is becoming fear
fully alarmed at the position in which the
party is placed by the Ku Klux outrages.
It is only another vindication of the
old adage: "Chickens go home to roost."
The Democratic press has persistently in
sisted, for the last eighteen months or two
years, that there were no such outrages
and thereby encouraged the perfidious mid
night assassins. known as the Ku Klux, in
their horrid work, and now, when the
overwhelming testimony of more witnesses
than were represented to have been sum
moned to show why Georgia by no means
could nor should enter the celestial gates,
are produced. to establish the facts, daily
reported, they whine like whipped span
iels, and assail those in whose hands an
outraged people have committed the task
of redress in a most frantic manner and
deny sworn statements and impugn the
motives of men as if all men were of their
Gentlemen of the Democratic press, you
are, in a great measure, responsible fur
these outrages by your persistent vindica
tion of the authors of the deviltry which
has made the South a reproach to the civ
ilised world, and you must bear it. The
people mean to hold you to account.
R. C. McMURTRIE AND THE REVISED
A lawyer in Philadelphia, named R. C.
lleaurtrie, is very much concerned, ap
parently, in regard to the Revised Statutes,
reported by Messrs. Hall and Derrickson,
Commissioners, appointed by the Gover
nor, to Revise the Civil Code of Pennsyl
vania. We are not acquainted with Mr.
McMurtrie, nor do we remember of ever
having heard of him, with a single excep
tion, until we saw his assault upon the re
port in question. Then, if we remember cor
rectly, he was one of the counsel for the Cred
it Mobillier of America, a corporation organ.
ized under the laws of Pennsylvania, which
was attempting to swindle the State out of
lOW four or five hundred thousand dollars,
And, if we are not mistaken, this same
Crectit Mobillier business is the secret of
the malicious attacks upon the Code Com
missioners. It is, we 'have no doubt, the
inspiration of Mr. McMurtrie's far-fetched
and unjust conclusions.
Governor Geary, Hon. Francis Jordan
and Hon. L. W. Hall, the former as Gov
ernor, and the latter as counsel for the
Commonwealth, were determined that the
little game of Mr. McMurtrie's clients, to
swindle the State, should not succeed. and
the large sum of money named has so far
been saved to the State. Hon. L. W.
Hall is a brother and Hon. Francis Jordan
a brother-in-law of Hon. Wm. M. Hail,
one of the Commissioners, and Mr. Mc-
Murtrie intends to revenge himself upon
the former by assailing the report made
in part by the latter. This, to say the
least, is a very small business. We have no
hesitation in saying that the portion of it I
prepared by Hon. Wm. M. Hall will re
main as a monument of his great legal
ability and acumen when Mr. McMurtrie
and his Credit Mobillier will be forgotten.
We have read this gentleman's criticisms,
and we have come to the conclusion that
they could only be prompted by some such
motive as the above. It is apparent in
every line. Out side of this, if Mr. Mc-
Alurtrie knows what he means himself he
is the only man that does; and, in short,
lie is not a candid critic for the purpose
of aiding in the perfection of a necessary
work, but is actuated, we have not a par
ticle of doubt, by personal malice.
We give this explanation of this gentle
man's violent assault upon this great work,
because we believe it to be due to the pro
fession at large, that this sort of criticism

More recent dispatches say, "fighting
still continues, and in a bloody character."
Large numbers of civilians have been killed
in the recent engagements. Another rev
olution is imminent. Barricades are scat
tered throughout Paris, and a permanent
court martial has been instituted by the
Commune, which is in constant session, in
imitation of the Revolutionary Tribunal,

ADJOURNMENT OF CONGRESS,
The first SCSion of the Forty-second
Congress closed on Thursday last, at two
o'clock, P. u. The session consumed more
than six weeks. The passage of the Ku
Klux Bill, (so called), was about the only
business of interest or importance transact
ed. The consideration of this bill occupied
the greater part of the session.
It is supposed that the Senate may be
convened in executive session about the
middle of next month, by which time the
Joint High Commission will have con
cluded their labors.

To the Senate and House of Representa-
1 have the honor to submit herewith, to
the two houses of Congress, the report of
the commissioners appointed in pursuane3
of joint resolution approved January 12,
- - -
It will be observed that this report more
than sustains all that I have heretofore
said in regard to the productiveness and
healthfulness of the republic of San Domin
go; of the unanimity of the people for an
nexation to the United States,and of their
It is due to the public, as it certainly is to
myself, that I should here give all the cir
cumstances which first led to the negotia
tion of a treaty for the annexation of the
republic of Sail Domingo to the United
States. When I accepted the arduous and
responsible position which I now hold, I did
not dream of instituting any steps for the
the acquisition of insular possessions. 1
believed, however, that our institutions
were broad enough to extend over the en
tire continent as rapidly as other peoples
might desire to bring themselves under our
protection. I believed, further, that we
should not permit any independent Govern
ment within the limits of North America
to pass from, a condition of independence
to one of ownership or protection. under an
Soon after my inauguration as President,
I was waited upon by an agent of President
Baez with a proposition to annex the Re
pulic of S-ill Domingo tithe United States.
This gentleman represented the capacity of
the island, the desire of the people and
their character and habits about as they
have been described by the commissioners,
whose report accompanies this message.
He stated further that being weak in num
bers and poor in purse they were not Capa
ble of developing their great resources;
that the people had no, incentive to indus
try on account o the lack of protection for
their accumulations; and that if not accept
ed by the United States, with institutions
which they loved above those of any other
nation, they would be compelled to seek
protection elsewhere. To these statements
I made no ,eply, and gave no indication of
what I thought of the proposition.
Is the course of time I was waited upon
by a second gentleman from San Domingo.
who made the same representations, and
who was received in like manner.
In view of the facts, which had been
laid before me, and with an earnest desire
to maintain the "Monroe doctrine," I be
lieved that I would be derelict in my duty
if I did not take measures to ascertain the
exact wish of the Government and inhabi-.
tants of the Republic of San Domingo in
regard to annexation, and communicate the
information to the people or the United
States. Under the attending circumstance:
I felt that if I turned a deaf ear to this
appeal I might in future be justly charged
with a flagrant neglect of the public inter
ests and an utter disregard of the welfare
of a down-trodden race, praying for the
blessings of a free and strong government,
and for protection in the•enjoyment of' the
fruits of their own industry.
Those opponents ofannexation, who have
heretofore professedto be pre-eminently the
friends of the rights of man, I believed
would be my must violent assailants if Ine
glected so clear a duty. Accordingly, af
ter having appointed a commissioner to visit
the island, who declined on account of sick
ness. I selected asecond gentleman, in whose
capacity, judgment and integrity I had,
and have yet, the most unbounded confi
dence. He visited San Domingo, not to
secure or hasten annexation, but unpreju
diced and unbiased to learn all the facts
about the government, the people and the
resources of that Republic.
He went certainly as well prepared to
make an unfavorable report as a favorable
one, if the facts warranted it. His report
fully corroborated the views of previous
commissioners, and upon its receipt I felt
that a sense of duty, and a due regard for
our great national interests, require me to
negotiate a treaty for the acquisition of the
Republic of San Domingo.
As soon as it became publicly known
that that such a treaty had been negotia
ted, the attention of the country was oc
cupied with allegations calculated to pre
judice the merits of the case, and with as
persions upon those whose duty had con
nected them with it. Amidst the public
excitement thus created, the treaty failed
to receive the requisite two-thirds vote of
the Senate, and was rejected. But wheth
er the action of that body was based wholly
upon the merits of the treaty, or might
not have been in some degree influenced
by such unfounded allegations, could not
be known by the people, because the de
bates of the Senate in secret session are
not published. Under these circumstan
ces, I deemed it due to the office which I
hold, and due to the character of the
agents who had been charged with the in
vestigation, that such proceedings should
be had as would enable the people to know
the truth. A commission was therefore
constituted, under authority of Congress,
consisting of gentlemen selected with spe
reference to their high character and
capacity for the laborious work entrustei
to them, who were instructed to visit the
spot and report upon the facts. Other
eminent citizens were requested to accom
pany the commission, in order that the
people might have the benefit of their
views. Students of science and corres
pondents of the press, without regard to
political opinions, were invited to join the
expedition, and their numbers were limited
only by the capacity of the vessel.
The mere rejection by the Senate of a
treaty negotiated by the President, only
indicates a difference ,of opinion between
two co-ordinate departments of the Gov
ernment, without touching the character
or wounding the pride of either. But
when such rejection takes place simultan
eously with charges openly made of cor
ruption on the part of the President, or
of those employed by him, the case is dif
ferent. Indeed, in such case, the honor
of the nation demands investigation. This
has been accomplished by the report of
the commissioners herewith transmitted,
and which fully vindicates the purity of
the motives, and actions of those who re
presented the United States in the negoti
And now my task is fin'shed, and with
it ends all personal solicitude upon the
subject. My duty being done, yours be
gins; and I gladly hand over the whole
matter to the judgment of the American
people, and of their representatives in
Congress assembled. The facts will now
be spread before the country, and a deci
sion rendered by that tribunal whose con
victions so seldom err, and against whose
will I have no policy to enforce. My
opinion remains unchanged—indeed, it is
confirmed by the report—that the interests
of our country and of San Domingo alike
invite the annexation of that republic.
In view of the difference of opinion
upon this subject I suggest that no action
be taken at the present session beyond the
printing and general dissemination of the
Before the next session of Congress the
people will have considered the subject
and formed an intelligent opinion concern
ing it; to which opinion, deliberately made
up, it will be the duty of every depart
ment of the Government to give heed, and
no one will more cheerfully conform to it
than myself. It is not only the theory of
our Constitution that the will of the peo
ple constitutionally expressed is the su
preme law, but I have ever believed that
"all men are wiser than any nne man ;"
and it the people, upon a full iresentation
of the facts, shall decide that the annexa
tion of the republic is not desirable, every
department of the Government ought to
acquiesee iu that decision.
In again slibmitting to Congress a sub
ject upon which public sentiment has been
divided, and which has been made the
occasion of acrimonious debates is Con
gress, as well as of unjust aspersions else
where, I may, I trust, be indulged in a
single remark. No man can hope to per
form duties so delicate and responsible as
pertain to the Presidential office without
sometimes incurring the hostility of those
who deem their opinions and wishes treat
ed with insufficient consideration ; and he
who undertakes to conduct the affairs of
a great government as a faithful public
servant., if suFlained by the approval of
his own cobscience, may rely with confi
dence upon the candor and intelligence of
a free people, whose best interests be has
striven to subserve, and can bear with
patience the censure of disappointed men.

Through struggiatind suffering, at the cost
of multiform agonies, bereaveinents, devastations, the
American Idea embodied in the preamble to our fathers'
Declaration of Independence , approaches its complete re
diva 'llia noble, inspii ing assertion that *all men are
cinatod equid,r and endowed by their , 'rector with inallen
alite tafife, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, le
Imo, a glittering generality, a poet's fancy, a philoe

Boston Massacre of 177 u, Ands its logical completion, Just
I one century later, in the XVth Amendment, which gives
to the equal political and civil rights of every man born or
naturalized in our Republic the shield and defense of the
Federal Constitution. Tho billows of Caste and Privilege
may roar and rage around that rock, and may transiently
seem on the poin of washing it away; but its foundations
are deep laid and steadfast, and the breakers of Reaction
' and slavery ace hurled against and dash their spray over
THEO. H. CREMER,
We do not underrate the forces of Prejudice and Aristoc
racy. We do sot for .et that a vary large miaoriy of the
American 'People still hold In their inmost hearts that
Blacks have no rights which Whites are bound to respect.
We fully appreciate the desperation wherewith all the war.
ring elements of hatred to Republican achievement will be
combined and hurled against the battlements of Republi
can ascendency of We do not doubt that local suc
cesses, facilitated by Republican feuds and dissensions, will
inspire the charging host with a sanguine hope of victory,
each as nerved it to put forth its utmost strength in the
earlier stages of the contests of 1864 and Inns. Yet our
faith is clear and strong that the American People still
bless God that, on the red battle-flelds of our late Civil
War, the Union was Imbed and Slavery destroyed, and
will never consciously decide that theprecious blood there
on poured out was lavished in rain.
Tun novae believes in the prosecution of the great
struggle by legitimate means to beneficent encle. To State
Sovereignty, it opposes indissoluble National Integrity ; to
Slavery for Blacks, Liberty for All; to Proscription, En
franchisement; to Popular Ignorance, Universal Educe.

and invincible Good Will. It would fain do it utmost to

Profoundly do we realized that the co;tesiTsOot7.7

downfall of the Slaveholdem' Confederacy, and rear their
children to hate those by whose valor and constancy its
overthrow man achieved. if we ever seem to differ ease°.
tinily from other Republicans, our conviction that magna
nimity is never weakness, that vengeance is never politic,
and thatdmils are not cast out by ISeelketonb, Must serte
to explain allegea eccenfricities whole perfect vindication
we leave to Time and Reflection.
Tea TEIDENE has been, is, and tenet be, a zealous advo
cate of Protection to Home Industry. Regarding habitual
idleness as the greatest foe tobitunan program, the bane of
human happiness, ma seek to win our countrymen in
masses from the ensnaring lures of Speculation, of Traffic,
and of alwaye overcrowded Prole...ions, to the
petite of Productive Industry. Wit would gladly deplete'
our overcrowded cities, where thousands vainly jostle and
crowd in misguided quest of "Something to Du " to cover
prairies and plains with colonies absorbed in Agriculture,
Mechanics and Manufactures, and constantly projecting
into the blank, void wilderness the bonne and the works
of civilized Man. Holding the Protection of Home Indus
try by discriminating duties on imported War. and Fab
rics essential to the rapid, beneficient diffusion of Produc
tion in all its phased and departments, and' so to the in
struction of our people in all the violet arts of Peace, we
urge our countrymen to adhere to and uphold that policy
in undoubting faith that the true. interest, nut of a class or
a section, but of each section and every useful class, is
thereby enbserved and promoted.
Tan Tann::a aims to be preeminently a Newspaper. Its
eorrespondents traverse every Slate, are present on every
important battle-field, age early advised of every no able
Cabinet decision, observe the proceedings of Congress, of
Legislatures. and of Conventions, and report to as by tele
graph all that seems of general inierest. We have paid
for one day's momentous advic. from Europe by Cable
far more then our entire receipts for the issue in which
those advices reached our readers. If lavish outlay, un
sleeping vigilance, and unbounded faith in the liberality
and discernment of the reading public, will enable us to
maka a journal which has no superior in the accuracy,
variety, and freshness of its contents. Tan TRIBUNE shall

to do without, however widely his politics may differ from

the Farmers' Club and kindred gatherings, are so inter
