Mir The Republioan Convention in
this place last week, does not say a
word abent its elephant—the darkey.
llll4hey shirk the question entirely.—
,submit that their action is
ardiy in the extreme. The re.
t idiest conventions of nearly every
• ,..;zititY-itnd state in the Union are
°' tb °twelves on the negro suf
frageoplatform, while the Democrat
io con,lentiOno are doing the reverse.
Tt is tie question, and our opponents
ihould not, be afraid in face t'he mu
sic. Let them stand or fall with their
party. But, their party being in fa
vor of-the negro voting, silence on
tho part of the Convention last week
is equivalent to acquiescence, beCause
if they were opposed to it they would
have said so. Failing to do so they
must be held as the rest of their par
ty in favor of negro voting.

The following resolution, adopt

this county, on Monday a week,
comes with a bad'grace from farmers
and mechanics, like most of them
Reeolved, That we continue, as heretofore, the
friends of American industry against the compe
tition of low priced foreign wares ; and we have
less cause now than ever to do aught that may
build up British monopolies at the expense of
our own industrial prosperity.
Did they consider what they were
passing when they unanimously
adopted the above, or did they mere
ly accept it without thought, as it
was preseiated to them, drawn up by
one whose interests are probably as
different frem theirs as day is from
night. They declare that they, "con
tinue the friends of Americati manu
factures," and are "oppposed to the
introduction of low-priced " foreign
wares" to compete with our own.—
This all looks very well in theory,
bnt let us look a little at thDpractice.
One or two items will.snffice to illus
trate. The gentlemen of the conven
tion,or their Wives, may want some
muslins. If they step into any store
of the neighborhood they will ibe Ask

will be' asked at least ihree times
what they paid formerly. Cottoais

_the storekeepers could retail
them at one-half the price he is now
obliged to ask for them. The manu
facturer,- whoin the ~merdiers of
the convention resolve to
is the one who gets the enhanced
price, making at least 100 per cent.
on the manufactured article, and, as
the income returns show, some of the
mills in the Nev England states are
making, over $lOO,OOO per week. We
could go on and specify hundreds of
articles that enter - 'into'the family
consumption of Messrs. Bicksler,
Mark, Early, Rank, and their col
leagues, causing them often to make
long faces when they hear the prices,
and yet they are not only willing to
continue to pay thus exorbitantly, but
resolve and vote to make their fellow
men do the same. What return do
they receive for maintaining this tax
upon the . public, ' and which bears
most heavily upon the laboring class
es ? How would they be "injuring
American industry" and be "building
up British monopolies" by buying
their muslins at 20 cents a yard in
stead of - 40, and their calico at 15 in
etead of 25 and '3O cents ? What is
the remedy ? Instead - of passing
such resolutions, let Messrs. Bicksler
& Co., get up petitions praying Con
gross, which is soon to meet, to re
duce the tariff on all goods. which are
now manufactured' at an exorbitant
profit in this country, and they will
soon find - that Cotton, as well as a

faculty. The Democracy have been
contending thaethe war ended the
moment the rebel armies under Lee

consequently the habeas corpus should
be restored, military commissions and
courts martial abolished, and the
civil law again be made supreme.—
We have thus been contending for
months, and in Philadelphia, aDemo

decided that the "war was over,"
granted 'a writ of habeas corpus, and
arrested and ftned,an officer for refus

to make a point, these same republi•

not only assert that the war is over,
but have the cool assurance to say
that the Democracy contend that it
is not over. Far reckless lying these

A SPOILED BOY.—Some months ago
a young mat about 19 years of age,
the son of respectable parents near
Bethlehem, forged the name of his
father to a note and sold it to a citizen
of Bethlehem. He spent the pro.:
ceedsun a , pleal3ure tour to Philadel
phia. When the note fell due it was
presented to the father, who at once
pronounced it a forgery, but in order
to, save the family from being dis
graced, he paid it. ,When the boy
returned his father had him arrested,
but he. was finally discharged with a
sharp reprimand - from the justice.—
But he did-ndt seem to' profit much
by this - kind treatment. A short
time thereafter he demanded some
money of his mother, threatening to
knock out her brains if she refused.
The old lady, through fear, complied
with his demands and =gave him the
i . noney. He came to Allentown, got
a woman of bad repute to go with
him to Philadelphia, where they
flourished until the money was all
gone, when he returned. On Yriday
morning last he renewed his demands
for money, this time patronizing his
father, whom he threatened to run
through with a pitch fork if he re
fused. Instead of handing over the
greenbacks the old gentleman went
to Bothlebemlnld _proeureit. a
rant for the arrest ofhis hopeful son.

Mobile Advertiser, in reply to accu
sations against the South, says "so
far from "robbing the poor negroes
of their labor," the difficulty is to
get their labor for wages which
would be deemed exorbitant at the
North. The South is full of work to
be done, and in cities and on planta
tions the cry is for laborers for a lib
eral compensation. In the face of
this demand the negroes are roaming
about the country, or clustering a
round the towns, picking up a preca
rious existence, and, as a natural con
sequence, sickening and dying by
thousands. A gentleman just from
Memphis tells us that 26,000 of these
Nomads are squatted around the out
skirts of that city, the mon doing
nothing and the women - dependent
on what they can gain from the
troops. Sickness and death are hold

And do we of the South not pity these
poor people ? From the bottom of
our hearts we do."
