Tlie leaders of tho niiwi'genation per

their theory in concerned Senator
Morton, of Indiana, in his address to
tho negroes in Washington, a few
days ago, said : "Tlio great example
of Congress in making universal suf

States must now bo followed in ull
the Northern Slates." Senator Sum

fore tho Connecticut election. The
celebrated New Jersey State Senator,
James M. Scovel, (who figured ho con
spicuously in that Stato while the
Rump Senate were trying to expel
from their body Mr. Stockton, be
cause he was a Democrat,) with oth

Republican party," and submitted it
to the Dead Duck for approval. But
a few members of his party in the

less than ten 3-"ars ago, waged a
relentless war against nil foreigners.
and held nightly sittings in hen-roost",
and pig-tyes, tor the purpose of dis
franchising three millions of while
people, becauso of their ignorance!
The thing that labors to enfranchise
tho negro because of his intelligence,
and to disfranchise his white neigh
bor because of ignorance, is bolli a
fool and a knave. Why, the fellow
can swallow "stulification"as easily as
Jersey lightning. Shoddy patriotism
is an awful doso for an American
stomach to carry.
Wc wonder how Rrotlicr Row feels
on negro suffrage ! AVo wonder if ho,
like Scovel, thinks himself and bis
Pimily no belter than negroes! lie
collect Scovel intimates that "no hon
est Republican" has tho right to deny
suffrage to the negroes.
A Cham;e. Tho freaks of fanati
cism, tinliko tho spots on the leopard,
are subject to many and sudden
changes. During the war, when loy
al eyes could tint look upon tho pic
ture ol a "Copperhead" without crea
ting a spasmodic afl'ection, the loyal
ists in the Connecticut Legislature or
dered tho likenesses of ex Governor
Toucey and Seymour to bo removed
from tho Kxeculivo Chamber, where
they were hanging with those of
other ex Governors ; but Iho late
Deniocraliu triumph in that Stato has
nlrondy restored these, paintings to
their original place. We wonder how
the weak and n fined nerves of those
loyal souls will endure this last "Cup.
pcrhcad" move 1 Loyally, as in the
days of ficorge III, dies hard, but as
then, it will have no mourners except
among the tories alias shoddyiles.
An exchange says: John II. Sur
ralt must bavo been asleep lor the
past five or six days, as neither the
Washington correspondent nor the
telegraph bavo said anything about
him tor that space of time. Jeff., too,
is keeping very quiet. We suspect
that since the conviction of Conover,
perjured witnesses are rendered very
scarce. Jo. Holt's subornation fund
may have rnn out, too. Jleneo the
quietude of the loyal political market.
The Wiiitr is this Shade. The
loyal papers aro publishing, with
great glee, tho fact that a Wack lie
publican Mass Convention was held
in Richmond on the 17th, thus augur
ing tho loyalty of tho late Confederate
Capital, and the progress of Radical
ism in tho South. Tho telegraph

Wo fear tho expenses of tho com
mittee will amount to a heavier bur
then than tho extortions (if any) of
tho railroad companies; anil if they
succeed in granting relief to tho peo
ple, and developing tho truth, they
will do more than similar committees
bavo dono for years. Legislative
committees and corporations seldom
quarrel. H is not often that tho pa
rent deals unnaturally w ith the child ;
henco thoso Legislative offsprings al
ways escape, especially when the
rights of tho people and thoso of the
corporations como in collision. If
this committee furnishes any relief to
the tax-ridden people and brings it to
our notice, wo will give them proper
credit. Wo confess wo bavo little
faith in men who attempted to appro
priate four millions of dollars to them
selves out of tho Stato Treasury,
when they had but three millions to
put in.
A Loyal Guah. We observe by
tho appropriation bill that Thos. II.
Rurroughs & Co. have again matured
their plan of robbing tho tax-payers
for another year of three hundnd and
fifty thousand dullart, ostensibly for
schooling soldiers' orphans, but really
to keep tip a loyal kennel, and billet
ing about three thousand children
upon tho State Treasury, that should
bo nursed and cared (or by their rela
tions. Wo have a system of educa
tion by which ull children can receive
a proper education, then why the

officers, sixty sin County Superintend
ents, and for tho schooling of stven
hundred thousand children ; while
8357,000 are appropriated for tho ed

Will some loyalist plcaso show us
tho point of common senso and of
justice, to cither tho children or tax
payers f Wo shall bo very much mis
taken it this wholesale system of rob
bing the tax-pnyers does not finally
break down tho whole system.
An Inciimknt Monarch. General
Sheridan is carrying things with a
high band, down in his "military do

king himself, literally, monarch of all

twecn negroes and whito men, is ad
mirably adapted to tho conversion of
what was once one of tho most pros
porous States in tho Union, into the
meanest sort of a Ilayli or a Jamaica.
The Military Reconstruction Rill, as
he interprets it, gives him leave to do
pretty much as he pleases, and every
day is demonstrating bow earnestly
ho is improving his opportunity. We
should not bo surprised if lie would

be did those of tho Shenandoah val-1

A Loyal Exemplification. "Gov

declared the registration in Ronton,

w hich is that those counties will cast
majorities against him. There was
nothing wrong with tho registry, for

do nothing wrong, of course This is
tho same kind of liberty that n robber

me, or you will bo disfranchised.

Thomas Rich, of Baltimore, have
brought suit, in tho United States
Ciicuil Court, against Major General
Wool, for their arrest and imprison

war. The case was up on Thursday.
Judgo (riles overruled tho prayer of
the counsel for General Wool, to be
exempt from trial under tho military
law and martial law. He said it was
but just for the licensed to show bo
fore tho proper tribunal good and
sufficient reasons why ho caused the
arrest and imprisonment of private
citizens. The trial therefore proceeds.

Such heroism and liolduess has never

tho Pittsburg I'ott of the LMi insV,
was bis having pardoned ') many
rebels "red -handed rebels" wo be

theme. Tho Radical Senators have
abused him for this exerciso of the

indignant, Rntler has grown furious
and tho lesser lights of tho Radical

that no tongue can tell their indigna

The Friends' Intelligencer, published
in Philadelphia, discusses the proper
course of action towards those mem
bers of tho (Quaker societies who have
borne arms during tho late war. It
says no general or uniform rulo has
been followed in these cases. Some
of tho guilty persons bavo "offered
in know ledgments," w hich have satis
fied their monthly meetiii!;s. Others
nro unable, as yet, to see their fault.
Tho Intelligencer would have great len
ity shown to thoso who "wero induc
ed to buckle on the sword," especially
as they were encouraged "by tho ex
pression of sympathy and interest in
tho cause at issue by thoso who wero
older, and wero looked upon as con
sistent members of our religious soci
ety." Rut it thinks that, for the fu
ture, Friends should give an increased
prominence to tho "pence principle"
in religious teaching, that especial
euro should betaken to impress it up
on children as early in life as possi
ble, and that this instruct ion should
not bo neutralised, "by placing in tho
hands of the little ones the toy -drum,
pistol and gun, with the tin battalion,
which, though inertivo in themselves,

from tho ballot-box, because of their
want of intelligence, but now, ask to
have all tho negroes enfranchised bo
cause they aro ignorant and uneducat

old Stato of Pennsylvania seems to
have struck thoir fancy ami straight
way they go to their "loyal" friends
in tho Legislature, und indiico them
to civa to a new loan of 8:2:1,000,000 at
six per cent, interest to pay that much
of tho prose lit debt, which only bears
Jive per rent, interest, and insert a pro
viso that will permit tlio new loan to
bo taken up with the old bonds. This
is a nico little arrangment. A paity
of thoso "loyal" fellows first go into
tho market to buy up all tho old loan
they can get, at about !)0 cents on tho
dollar, mid thou, ns soon as tho new
loan hiiB been taken, rexto, tho old

tbo way your hard earnings nro filch

In referring to this mutter, Fernon's
Hail Jluad and Mining Register, lias
the following : , i ,
A discussion of a public question
seems necessary to elicit tho truth in
all its bearings and nspects. For it
now turns out that, Hie old State loans,
which tho preamble to the 8:2:1,000,000
loan act, approved 2d February, lsiti7,
declares ' have been overdue and un
paid for some time past," arcnuf over
due. The words on tho face of the
Stato certificates aro "tho principal
of which stock is reimbursable by the
Commonwealth at any time, after the
first of July in Iho year 1S5S." Here,
it will bo perceived, tho Common
wealth only bound herself not to re
deem said loans (erroneously said to
bo overdue in tho preamble to the act
of Assembly) before July, ls.r)S, and
explicitly reserved to herself the oji
tiou to redeem them subsequent to
that date, at her own plca-uro.
These old loans, moreover, bear on
ly Ji 'if? per cent, interest, whereas tho
new loan not only bears kix per cent.
interest, but tho act creating it ex
pressly declares lhat it "shall not be
subject to any taxation whatever, for
State, munioipial or local purges."
Why, then, should tho Common
wealth redeem five per cent, loan l'reo
from taxation ? Why, indeed f
See Section 5, of the act of 2d Feb.
1?G7, which reads :
"See. fi. Any pcrwin or perront atanding in the
Aduciary capacity itated in tha f'jarth eeclion of
thin act, who may denire to inveat monry in their
hand for the benefit of the truat, may. without
any order of court, inveat the aauie in the Iwnda
autlioriicd to be iamiod by thia at, at a rate of
premium nut exceeding tweuty per eentuin."
This section shows that it is tho ex
pectation of tho successful bidders for
the new loan to work it up to a high
price above pur in the market ; but to
authorize the investment of ruf funds
"without order of court," at a "rate
of premium" as high as "twenty per
centum," is a startling provision to
incorporate into a loan act. The
Stato herself, it will bo seen, on refer
ence to tho list of bills, reciiivorj of

of tho oilers being for par, the entire
premium being iiardly bullicient to

earo lo o I leir l.nco li.r a "l.i.r
thing" is correspondingly enhanced.
Moreover, we assert on tho best au
thority that representat ives of foreign
creditors of the Stulo, holders of the
outstanding but not overdno five per
cent. loans, complain that too short
notice was given between tho issuing
of tho prospectus of the new loan and
tho date fixed for the opening of bids,
to allow them opportunity to become
competing bidders.
The net creating the new loan was
passed Feb. 2, 107. Proposals wero
advertised on f ho 8lh of February.
The bids wero opened April 1. Why
this "hot haste?'' Was it done to cut
off' distant bidders, keep down the
rato of premium accruing to the
State and then raise the rato of pre
mium in tho market f

favor of men of all parlies. When a
man can boldly stand up in tho midst
of the corruption which is admitted
by everybody to have prevailed at

of the people in such a manner ns lo
draw forth an acknowledgment like
tho above from a political enemy, it
shows that bo posesscs an innate sen
timent of honesty such us we all hope
to dud in our public officials, but, alas,
aro too often disappointed in tlio ex
pectation !
It must bo a matter of gratification
to our party friends, that with the
many denunciations of their lenders
in this Slate, no whisper of suspicion
has ever been uttered against their
character for integrity. During Mr.
Clyiner's long career in tho Senate,
with the inonL infamous legislative de
bauchery surrounding him, bo pre
served an unstained reputation, and
amid tho beat of tho canvass last
year, with tbo hundreds ol charges
heaped upon him, not one was coined
alleging or even intimating any doubts
as to his personal purity." After bis
retirement, Mr. Wallace became the
Democratic loader, and tho act above
recited affords tho best illustration ol
bis lilnces for the position. His hon
esty is freely conceded by those who
would bo most prompt to detect and
cxposo even tho slightest step outsido
of tho legitimate conduct of a public
official, and whatever assaults may be
made upon his politicul course, nono
deny to him the loftiest attributes of
a latthtul, vigilant and incorruptible
statesman. J'ho timo is coming when
these facts will bo appreciated by the
people, and the men who have stood
sternly by their duty, regardless of
tho blandishments of public thieves,
or tho clamors against their patriot
ism raised by those who sought in that
way to keep their own vile deeds from
being brought to light, will receive
that rewurd which their Legislative
and privato merits so richly entitle
them too. Erie Observer.

charily towards the samo communi
ties ? No class of men in this portion
of the Union did more, during the
late civil war, lo inspire it with vin
dictive cruelly und malice, or have, ils close, manifested moro zeal
in stimulating tho pooplo and their
Representatives in Congress to keep
alive the bitter animosity of that do-
ploraWo contest, than tho clergy.
Parson Rrownlow, w ho said, less than
a year ago, that bo "would rather go
to hell with a loyal negro, than to
Heaven with a w hite rebel," is, wo
regret to say it, a fair exemplar of
mo loyiii clergymen tn tins quarter
of tho United States. Wo do not
dispute Rrowiilnw's taste, but wo do
tbiuk his profanity quite unt lericnl.
When the clergy stop such blasphemy,
and Congress, as the exponent of the
national sentiment, show somo touch
of true Christian mercy and magnan
imity in their action towards the
Southern people, it will bo lime
enough to discuss tho question of in
serting in tho national Constitution
iho declaration that we arc a religious
people. Until then, tbo matter had
better bo postponed.
Cincinnati in Clcvkr. Tbo inhab
itants of Cincinnati have been made
happy. A distillery, situated near
tho river, at the point where tho wa
ter w hich Cincinnati people drink is
pumped into a rcservoil, burned down
a few days ago, nnd such immense
quantities of whisky ran into the river
astogivo tbo water a strong flavor
of grog. Tho Chicago 7Vir.t insinu
ates that since the occurrence large
numbers of tho inhabitants have taken
to drinking water.
Tho Raleigh, (N. C.) Sentinel gives
an account of tho burning of a iie-jro
boy four
women t
years old, by two freed
named Collins, mother and
daughter, w ho believed tho child was
"a devil." Tho Bureau arrent was
evidontlv not hl.out.
