'C L E A R FIELD, P A .
Thursday Morning, Jan, 17, 1867.
Hunator Wallace arrived at homo
latit oveninc, and informs us that
every "loyal" Senator and mcmbor
voted for Gon. Cameron on J uesuny
exoopt Gen. Harry Whito (the man
who spent $5,000 of tho Slate funds
on the 4th of July) and Billingfolt,
Onk More. Ono after another the
"loyal'' propB are yielding to tho su
law of the land. Tho United
States Supremo Court decided, on
Monday last, that the Missouri test
oath; required of clergyman was un
constitutional, and that tho Congrcs
Bional test oath imposed upon attor
neys was ac ex post facto law, and
therefore unconstitutional. If the
Executive and the Judiciary continue
in the good work, the "machine" will
soon be where "Old Abe" found it in
On the celebrated 8th of January,
while tho Democracy throughout the
Union were celebrating Gon. Jackson's
victory at Now Orleans, tho Disunion
Kumpers at Washington were con
cocting a scheme by which they denign
destroying "the best Government the
world ever saw." There, in tho room
where tho American Congress form
erly assembled, sat a cabal of
political jayhawkcrs, perfecting a
plot of impoachmout; a mean whelp
rising in bis seat, charges tho Chief
Magistrate with high crimes, because
ho administers tho Government ac
cording to tho Constitution and the
precedents of the Fathers of tho Re
public. Hear the canting hypocrite :

Mr. Ashley, of Ohio 1 send to the Clerk's desk
ehargrs and specifications, which I ask to be read.
The Clerk read as follow:
I do impeach Andrew Johnson, Vice-President
and acting President of the tutted Slates, of high
crimes and misd mennors. I rhttrgo him with
usurpation of power and violation of law: In that
be has corruptly used the appointing power; ii
that he has corruptly used the pardoning power
In that he has corruptly used the veto power; io
that he tins corruptly dixniaed of the nudlic nroi
rty of the I'nited States; in that he has eominilv
interfered In elections, and eonspin-d with othws
to commit acts which, in the contemplation of the
Constitution, are high crimes and misdemeanors;
therefore, be it
Hetolrtd, That the Committee on the Judiciary
be and they are hereby authorised to inquire into
the official conduct of Andrew Johnson, Vice
President, discharging tho powers and duties of
the office of J' resident of the I nited Mates, and to
report to this House whether in their opinion the
said Andrew Johnson, while in said office, has been
guilty of acts which were designed or calculated to
overthrow, suhrert or corrupt the Government of
the I'nited States, or any department or officer
thereof; and whether the snid Andrew Johnson
has been guilty of any act, or has conspired with
others to do acts which, in contemplation of the
Constitution, are high crimes and misdemeanors,
requiring the interposition of the constitutional
power of this House, and that said committee have
power to send for persons and papers, and to ad
minister the customary oaths to witnesses.
Mr. Ashley, of Ohio, moved the previous ques
tion on the resolution.
Which was adopted, hy 107 yeas to 39 nays.
Tho President is, therefore, in the
hands of this committee the grand
jury and if they find a true bill, it

The man Ashley, who has thus
attempted to imitate Edmund Burke,
by introducing tho impeachment res
olutions, is a fifth-rate lawyer from
Toledo, Ohio, and tho iiump repre-
setitativo from tho Tenth district of
that State. Wo can imagino him

Tho loyal members of tho Legisla
ture were publicly sold in the hotels
at Harritiburg, during last week, and
tho smell of bribery became so fragrant
that two committees wero raised for
-tho purpose of ascertaining where the
odor canto from, but after smelling for
four days they report that they find
nothing that is imprudent, indelicate,
or that savors of guilt on tho part of
anyone; every moccnsin trnck was
covered. Tho joko is. now on tho
committee It is charged that tho
Winnebago chief stuffed tho cars and
noses of tho members with his Sea
Island cotton, while their eyes were
covered with unoiled green paper. No
wonder, the poor souls found nothing.
They were blind and deaf,and could not
smell; robbed of a majority of their
senses, and could ofcourso not htyir,
sco or smell anything indelicate or im
prudent. .It is bard to cutch old birds
Tin: Test. The loyal spawns who
havo heretofore expressed so much
lip-revcrenco for Gen. Jackson, were
brought to tho score on that question
on tho 8th instant, tho anniversary of
tho bnttlo of New Orleans. In days
gone by Congress always adjourned
over this day, until il fell to the lot of
tho present Kunin to disregard this
national holiday. Tho Rumpcrs as
scmblod on tho morning of tho 8th
and proceeded to business, whon Mr.
Niblack, Pern., of Indiana, moved to
adjourn over until the next dny. Mr.
Ashley (tho celebrated impcacher)
objected, stating that tho 8th of Janu
ary as a holiday was played out; and
upon a call of tho yenB and nnyB,ovory
Kumpcr voted against nn adjourn
ment. Wo suppose theso fellows will
next "play out" tho 4th of July.
Evidently Short. Those demo
cratic editors who published tho lato
anli-Amorican niossngo of Gov. Curtin
must havo been "hard up" for matter.
If wo wanted to tront our readers had
to a Kadical dose wo would havo given
them something emanating from
proper source. Whenever wo wish
to regale them with disunion-treason
wo will give them Stevens' or 1'hil
lips', instead of tho bastard hubblings
of a defunct dcma'Tniruo. Tho decis

ident's veto, contain far moro demo
cratic gospol, and proclaim tho old

Tho members of our Legislature
controlled hy "grund moral idons,"
took it into their beads, hist week,
that bribery and corruption was abroad
at the State Capital, and in order to
cago tho monster, a committee was
raised in each bouse for tho purpose.
Tho garrets and cellars wero searched,
. but the bird had flown. Tho commit"
Ueo reported "no cause of action, and
tho Commonwealth to pay the costs."
Some of tho members lost heavy by
i this movement, as tho prico for Sona-
i torial votes ran down from ft.'i.OOO to
, ll.oOO. This was rough on "moral
ideas," but many a fool has cut bis
; throat for less than this.

they keep out of tho bands of the

ten years ago, advocated tho disfrnn-
hisementof tho "iVnorrtnf Irish,! hitch
and French paupers," becauso of their
unfitness to cxerciso tho right of sufT
rage intolligibly, will ovontually wage
tho santo crusade against tho "intelli
gent contraband." Having failed in
their first attempt, they may succeed
in tho second. A man who boldly
advocated tho disfranchisement of his
own rnco, (and hits never recanted,)
must bo an infamous hypocrite if bo
has any respect for another. Sambo,
watch tho man who now professes
such great friendship for your politi
cal rights, who, but a few years ngo,
was caught in tho very act of robbing
his own father of U inalionahlo rights.

Senator Billingfelt, of Lancaster,
"A great crimo was to bo perjtotra
ted to-night. Tilts high ollice ol Uni
ted States Senator was to bo bargain
ed away for gain. Thero wns uot a
gentleman in tho room (if thero wns
ho would cull upon linn to step lor
ward) who did not believe this. There
wns not a Senator present who did
not feel satisfied from the bottom of his
heart that this ofiico would bo barter
ed and sold to-night. Nino out of ev
ery ton intelligcntcitizcnswill endorse
their action it they remain out ol the
caucus; and lie, lor one, snouiu not,
become a party to a movement that
would bring dishonor nnd disgrace,
not only upon tho members of the
Legislature, but upon their constitu
ents and the great Kepublican party
of Pennsylvania, hy giving Ins voice
or lending his presence to a body of
men who uro going to assemble to
night, to set at defiunco the best and
holiest wishes ot that great party.
And Mr. Killingfelt did not go in.
Col. Lemuel Todd, of Cumberland,
"The friends of General Cameron
had Becured a majority that would
give him the nomination in caucus.
He had no hesitancy in saying that
the election of Simon Cameron would
bo tho worst calamnity that could bo
ful the Stale. It would be a dishon
or, not only to thc-State, but to every
member of tho Kepublican party.
The disease requires a radical remedy,
and it is for tho men who are faithful
to Kepublican principles to set their
faces against this corrupt effort of Si
mon Cameron and strike at the very
roots of it. Belter ten thousand times
that no election should be mado than
that be should disgrace ns. The
true policy of those who are opposed
to Cameron is to forco tho election
before tho House nnd defeat hira at
Notwithstanding this nnd much
more, all of tho members present, ex
cept Fisher nnd Billingfelt, went into
thccnncus,nnd when Cameron brought
out bis forty-six votes, they fell into
the leash with the docility of whipped
spaniels. Shunio 1
Forney's 7V.s of the 11th contains
tho following bitter reflection :
"Simon Cameron was last evening
nominated for United States Senator
by a majority of tho Union members
of the Legislature, nearly everyone
of whom voted for him, knowing that
his selection would be regarded ns on
insult by tho Kepublicans of his dis
trict, and accordingly by the great
body of tho Kepublicans of tho State.
Thero has never been so studied a vi
olation of public sentiment and pub
lic decency ns this nomination. Al
though a largo body of tho trusted
champions of our party tppoared on
tho ground, protesting against the se
lection of Cameron nnd warning tho
Union members of tho dangers of
such a step, their appeals nnd their
admonitions were alike disregarded.
Tm:r Doctrine. The Democracy
of Washington City celebrated the Btlrt
of Junnary with a banquet nnd toasts
and speecnes, nt tne ,uuonui jioiei.
Among tho honored guests was Presi
dent Johnson, who, in responso to a
toast, gave tho following:
"No Slate of its own will has a right
under.the Constitution to renounce its
placo in or to withdraw from the
Union. Nor has tho Congress of the
United States a constitutional power
to degrndo tho peoplo ofony Stuto by
reducing them to a mero territorial
dependency upon the Federal head.
Tho ono is a disruption a dissolution
of tho Government, t ho other is a con
solidation and an extreme of despotic
power. Tho advocates of tho latter
aro also the enemies of tho Union and
of our constitutional form of govern
ment." The applause with which this true
and incontrovertible sentiment was
received was loud nnd long continued.
