WM. N. BRESLIN, Editor and Proprietor
ne, The German Republicans at a
Convention held At Detroit, resolved
"not to, vote for Lincoln." They
want Fremont, chase, Butler, or some
other candidate—but not Lincoln.
`The Executive State - Committee of
the New Jersey German organiza

Is_ The State Senate was organ
ized, last week, by the Republicans
seceding from - their revolutionary
and unconstitutional- course. Mr.
Penny resigned, as Speaker, which
however there was .no need" for as he
was. not Speaker, and then an elec
tion was - had and Mr. P. was elected.
The Position, hehlhy the Democrats
from the beginning of the session has
thus receiveda complete - vindication,
for had the Republicans been right
they would have - persevered - and leg
islation, would not have suffered, for
they havoa majority and could pass
any measure; But knowing' - that
they were wrong, they yielded after
a waste of two months' time, and a
large amount of -the people's money.
If the people of Pennsylvania: do not
condemn the pOlicy and course of the
Abolitionists next fall they do not de
serve better:governinent than is now
exercised over them.
Ver LITTLE HEARTS.—The amenu
ments to the constitution allowing
soldiers - to vote were passed upon in
the State 'Senate last week. The
Democrats did not vote at all -upon
the question, because- the Senate was
unorganized,—no speaker having then
yet been elected. After the election
of a Speaker they asked permission
to record their votes on the question,
and the big-hearted I manly ! fair
minded. Abolitionists refused them the
privilege. -They do this for political
capital sake, and their papers have
the meanness to bell their readers
that the course pursued by the Demo
crats was because they are opposed
to the soldiers voting. The. Demo
crats would not be guilty of such
mean, dirty, little tricks if they could
thereby obtain a unanimous vote for
their party. The democrats want the
soldiers to vote, but they also want
things done in accordance with the
Constitution and the laws:

TY.—What wonderful changes a few
-years may bring about. Three years
ago we were a happy, prosperous
and pon-mful nation. What are we
now ? Three 'years ago the Demo
cratic party had a number of - men in
its ranks whose room w•as more de
sirable than their company. They
either wanted to manage or have the
offices, to neither of which the party
would consent, because they wanted
either confidence, character or ability.
Presto change, and they joined the
abolitionists. We now find them the
chiefs among the rulers. Who are
they ? There is Stanton, Secretary
of War. We will not; say anything
against him because, we understand,
that a copy of the ADVERTISER was
sent to him a few' weeks ago from
this place, with the
. inquiry whether
we should be hung ! Ile mightan
swer "yes," and as discretion is the
better part of valor, we bold our
peace I But then there is ' Ben But
ler. He voted for Breckenridge in - the
Charleston convention upwards of an
hundred times, we believe, and threat
ened to vote for him-jmtil doomsday..
He is now chief "beast" of the Aboli
tiOnists. His specialty is to 'abuse
women, and, in general, act.the out
law, which he has been declared to be
by Jeff. Davis. Chase was a demo

We Might mention hundreds of other
cases where discharged Democrats
have became leaders aniong the oppo.
sition, but - the above is sufficient to
show that the .men considered to be
the best among the present day Re
publicans, were always regarded as
the worst among the Democrats, and
hence, it is no wonder that the "best
government on the face of the earth"
while these men were kept out of of
fice and power, has become as it is
with them in place and authority. -
In the canvass of 1560 the
Democracy charged upon the-Repub
lican party an attempt to interfere
with the institutions of the Southern
States.. They denied it. When the
civil war broke out in 1861, the Lin
coln speakers: and presses were most
terribly _emphatic in the ig.lertion
that it was not on account of SlaVery
or any fears for its overthrow that
induced the South to array. them
selves in hostility to the government,
but that for thirty year& they had
secretly premeditated a dissolUtion
of the Union. Since the proclama
tion of the .President emancipating
their much beloved colored brethren,
they all earnestly swear that slavery
was the cause of the war, and that
the governmetat cannot restore peace
until that cause is removed.:
Attei- It is proposed that the: best
way to "take Richmond," iS first to
take Washington, next fall, by means
of the ballot-boxeS, , when Richmond
will have to yield. Washington is
between us and Richmond, and is not
in - the possession of the people, but
in the hands of spoilers and incompe
tents; hence, the necessity of taking
it by ballots ! •

upon the perpetrators, the people are
making up their .minds - that retalia
tion is the only and rightful remedy
in times like these. The Administra
tion at Washington certainly could
put a stop .to the lawlessness now
rife in the land, but as they are not
stopped, and no l i viten tion is apparent
to stop them; we must conclude that
they connive at them, and hence,
