If an individual were informed by
his physician that ho hnd the itch ou
his hand, or was afflicted with some
other loathsome disease, he would

it, and prevent it from apreading over
other portions of hU body. This i

it not also common sense, to preserve

Politically, the people of tho United
States are just now afflicted with a
more foul and fatal disorder than the
itch. Thad. Stevens & Co. havo abro
gated the Constitution in ten States,
and exchanged a Republic for a Des
potism. And yet they are calm.
Tbey act as though no uclugo were
at Land. As a physical disorder must
be cured in order to prevent its exten
sion to the whole bod-, and thereby
endanger life, why not seek a cure
also for our Xalional afflictions? A
Militarr lV-jo!sraf cow fully estab
lished in ten States, will soon be trans
ferred to the balance. This political
disorder will press forward, and if not
checked scon, w ill stamp its heel upon
every fot of this continent. Those
persons who love and adore the sys
tem ly which Ireland and Poland
Lave been an J are now governed, will
of course favor the Radical pro
gramme, as laid down by Thad. Ste
ven and his Radical cohorts ; but
those who favor a Republic that
form of Government transmitted to
us by Washington and his co-workers
will never rest until the present
political vagabonds arc driven out of
LeTus say: ' Where liberty dwells,
there is my country, and we'll de

"RE-co-isratcTios." The remarks
of Hon. James Brooks, in tho Kump
House, the other day, will be found in
luil on oar orst page. Ua this very
important LiU, the most important,
hich ever F Congress, the ma-
jority gave the minority but ono hour
and a half of time for the discussion,
one Lour of which was allotted to Mr.
Brooks, tho only Democratic member
on the Committee. Mr. Brooks,
therefore, had no time to read his au
thorities showing that even ''Con
quest" justified no such a bill as this,
even if the Southern States were a
conquest from foreigners upon which
the acknowledged Publicists arc in
many places very explicit. The mode
and manner of forcing on the Bill,
were as objectionable as tho Bill itself,
no adequate timo being given even
fur the study and preparation such a
bill requires. We hope that our read
ers will give this speech a careful pe
rcs&L Little time as Mr. Brooks was
allowed, Le nevertheless covers the
whoie ground, and in it sets forth the
crimes and follies of the Radicals in

one should be so determinedly blind
as not to se it. Wo bono nono will.

Tho I'dfey Spirit says : "Next to
Ben. Butler, tho mealiest specimen of
a renegado that we know of in tho
United Stales is John A. Logan, of Il
linois. Logan, liko Butler, is a politi
cian for pay. Ho makes politics a
trade, and tho party that pays him
best gels his services. Principle nev
er enters iuto tho account. Before
tho war ho was it rampant, firc-caiiug!
liemocrat. .No man in tlio country
indulged in fiercer invectives against
tho Republican party its aims nnd
purposes, ami leading men than he.
After tlio war Lroko out, in thospring
of 101, ho was accused of being in tt
conspiracy to t:il(0 tlio Southern part
of tlio StutCof liliiioisoutof tho Union
and join it in tho Southern Confedera
cy, and the chargo was published in
tho Republican newspapers all over the
country. We remember well that tho
Ilarrisburg Tdcjruph, and kindred
sheets, called upon tho authorities to
havo him arrested on tho chargo of
treason when ho should arrive at
Washington to take his seat as a mem
ber of Congress, in tho special session
called by President Lincoln to con
veno on tho 4th of July, of that year.
Ho was charged in the same connec
tion wilh recruiting men in Southern
Illinois for tlio rebel armies. So no
torious were theso allegations against
his loyalty, that he f mud it necessary
to vindicuto himself in a letter, pub
lit.hod in tho St. Louis Hcpubliain, in
which he denied the charges preferred
against him by tho Republican press
of tho country, but admitted that ho
wns in favor of an niniciiblo settlement
of tho difficulties between tho sections
and opposed to cocr:ivn. Ho also de
nounced tho into Senator Douglas for
his war Npccch at Springfield, made
after tho surrender of Port Sumter,
and tillered that Douglas in that
speech, hud stultitied himself and aban
doned tho principles of his party, and
that ho, for ono, refused to follow him.
Such is tho record of tho man who is
now howlingfor vengeance against tho
neoplo nhom ho seemed so anxious to
befriend in the epring of 1801 j and
this is tho man who hud tho nudacity
to move to exclude tho wholo Ken
tucky delegation from their seats in
CongrcR8,buing his motion on a vauo
and indetinito chargo of disloyalty
against tho Kentucky members.
lt is Iruo that Logan subsequently
purged himself of alleged disloyalty
by going into the Federal army, but
this ho only did after ho found" that
Aft wus likely to bo tho conquering
side, anil would pay. Whether he
wns guilty of tho charges alleged
against him, wo do not pretend to say,
but this wo do sny, that it does not
become John A. Logan to lead a vin
dictive partisan warfare upon men
whoso record for loyalty will, nt least,
compare favorably with hitnrwn. Tho
charges against thoso men nro vague
indeed, compared with these against
himself in tho spring of X0I. Mod
esty, if nothing else, should havo in
duced him to keep silent on this ques
tion. We arc glad to notice that sonio
of tho Democratic members nro rub
bing him up on his record. Wo hopo
they will keep pouring tho hot shot
into tho "dirty dog" until he cries
"enough." Such urrant hj-poerilcs
nnd mercenary scoundrels nrc deserv
ing of no sympathy or qnarler."
Tho Augusta (GVirgia) S ntiiul in
referring to Logan, saj s ; "Tho revo
lutionary conchivo, now in session in
tho Federal Capitol, refused nd mission 1
to their seats to tho members elect'
from Kentucky, upon tho motion of
John A. Logim, uf Illinois, who, nt
tho commencement of the war dollar-!
cd that the South was riht in resist
ing with arms tho aggressions of the
Northern Aliolilionists, nnd that Fed
eral recruits from Illinois should march
over his (h ad body before they enter
ed upon Southern soil, lie), also, in
tho spring of S01, endeavored to
ruiso n regiment in Southern Illinois
to march South and tender its services
to tho Conl'cdcrato Government.
This man now opposes tho admis
sion of tho Kentucky representatives
becnuse ho says ho has been informed
thnt they tympathUed with the South
ern cause during tlio war, and wore
elected to their seats mainly by tho
votes of "returned rebels," nnJ upon
his motion they wcro refused admis
sion nnd their cases referred toacom
mittoo for special investigation."
Of Logan's conduct bolore tho war,
there can be but ono opinion, llo was
ay avowed disunionisl, and is so still;
and only lett tho Domooratlo parly to

victed ringleaders in the railroad dep

Td the J'.iiitors l.buisrdk Journal:
lt is with decp languish and ninth
emotion of soul that 1 write you this
short notice. Ere these lines aro teen
by tho public cyo I shall have been in
eternity. To-morrow, between tho
rising and setting s:in, I am lo be pub
licly executed. " This thought has
hitherto filled my mind wilh horror
nnd contempt. But now that 1 tee
my fate is inevitable, I nm, 1 hope,
prepared ; and liko immortal Cicero,
am ready to say, I nm content to die
"if my country will lie cither tho wis
er or happier by it." 1 havo been
branded to almost every species of
crime, and am now to dio for tho mur
der of my brother, of which 1 nm us
innocent ns an angel in heaven.
I tako this opportunity' to inform
tho public of un imposition that is
about to bo imposed upon them rel.i
tivs to my life and history.
I nm told that of tho number of
books there will be no cntLj nil pur
porting to be tho lifo and history of
Capt. W, P. King, tho great railroad
robber and murderer, etc. Now this
is nil stuff, nnd means used ns u decep
tion in order to make money. My life,
adventures, dreams, secrets, and com
ments on the trial nnd testimony are
all in the hands of a careful, and, 1
trust, fatthiul compositor, xvhich will
not bo published until I bhall have
been dono with tho troubles ot this my
earthly hell. Though 1 bo "a mur
derer, as tho world is wont to call
mo, I feel that thero is a better day
coining; and if the just vengeneo ot
hcavon ever overtakes my enemies,
they will suffer much.
But in this I take no pleasure, for I
can forgive my most violent? enemy,
and, if need be, could embrnco him.
Eternity iilono can tell tho myster
ies of tho present nge but if I nnd
my enemies should meet in a better
world, it will bo nil right then. You
are, therefore, referred to my own his
tory, ns written by myself, for n full
and satisfactory report of tho whole
Slay God bless my dear friends nnd
relatives that survive mo. Oh ! may
He support my aged mother nnd af
flicted wife. Oh ! what nain ! what

at last, this littlo word, Fa rare!! !

Armeh TO TI1K 'J'KKTII. Bishop
Tuttlo, tho newly elected missionary
Bishop of Colorado, who started lately
lor tno tieia ol Ins future labors,
has been heard from. Tho person
sending tho information announces
that tho entire party, Bishop nnd nil,
were nrmed, owing'to tho fears of an
nttack by tho Indians. A religious
jourunl commenting upon this, piously
asks, "Wns thoro not a great deal
of sclfreliance shown by nil tho party
being so heavily armed f Wo hope
thoy did not trust so much to an arm
of flesh. Certainly tho nposllcs did
not go nrmed to their missionary
slatiims, nnd this does not sound well
in ii Christian Bishop who claims to
bo their successor." Wo would in
form tho anxious inquirer that the
trust wns moro in Coil's seven-shooters,
and would add that somehow tho
red skins seem generally moro im
pressed with such arguments than
with even the most pertinent refer
enco to tho Ten Commandments.

"I fear that wo shall loso Pennsylva

1867 - - Oflicial Vole.
President Johnson has vetood tho
amendatory military reconstruction
hill passed by tho present Congress.
He could not havo Juno otherwise and
kept inviolate his oath ol ollicc, to
maintain, protect nnd defend tho Con
stitution of the United States. The
bill is in flat opposition to fill tho es
sentia! pi iiicipu s is) that great chart
of American civil liboity. It destroys
ten States ; it places tho military pow
er over tho civil in timo of peace; it
denies citizens representation in the
civil tribunals of tho land, mid in va
rious other ways conflicts with those '
well-known ideas of fn-o reprctsotita-1
live government upon which the sage
and blalcMiien cf the revolutionary era '
of our country founded a model reptib- j
lie in this Western World. According I
to the provisions of this bill, Congress I
can, by a simple act of power, cancel .
tlio entire corporate lilo and being of
a State, and destroy tho rights of its
peoplo to participuto in any of those
duties which nro tho evidences of
American citizenship. These being
tho uims and purposes of the bill pre
sented to tho Chief Magistrate of tho
nation, a voto was natuuilly expected
by all who still cherish u veneration
and regard for tho form of govern
ment under which this nation has
grown to such magnificent propor
tions. The facts presented by the Presi
dent in support of tho different posi
tions ho ussumes arc plain and unan
swerable, ami bis arguments nnd il
lustrations clear, cogent nnd convinc
ing. But they will have no effect up
on the revolutionary party now in
power, who promptly passed tho bill,
notwithstanding tlso President's ob
jections. They havo determined to
hold authority nt all hozarda. The
President has donehis duty. He has
exhausted nil his constitutional pow
ers in defense of tho Constitution, tho
rights of tho States and the peoplo. If
American citizens desire to remain
treemen, they must now tnko the mat
ter in their own hands. The issuo is
mado up between Congress and tho
peoplo, nnd the latter must moot it
liko nion, or their liberties will soon
bo a memory of tho past. Age
