Inconsistency of Democracy.
One week the copperhead pajiers de
nounce republicans for not taxing national
bondholders, although these bonds were
issued with the express contract that they
were not to be taxed, and then turn around
6 and cry out against the same party in a
ease where all were put upon the same
tooting and where the act was fully jus
tifiable. Pennsylvania it will be remem
bered, formerly paid the interest on its
bunds in coin, but as gold became a spec
ulation the Legislature wisely determined
that as taxes were collected in currency,
it would not be right to buy coin at a
heavy expense for the purpose of paying i
more interest than the law contemplated
That party might have compelled even i
fanner, merchant, merchanic and work
ing man to have paid their taxes in coin. !
and thus favored those who held thebonds, I
but this was deemed wrong to the people,
and in lbG4 a bill was repor.ed authoriz
ing the State authorities thereafter to pay
interest in currency, just as every body
The liarrisburg Telegraph, in calling
attention to this subject, says that whib

Trickery and deception are evidently
*he main relianeeof the self-styled deruoe
' racy now-a-days. Not content with hav
| i ng step by step converted that party from
its old professions and principles until the
nullifying doctrines of John C. Calhoun,
which Gen. Jackson considered equiva
lent to treason, have taken the place of
every form and feature of what deniocra-
Icy once was, nearly all their papers are
now engaged in misleading their readers
into a total disregard of faces. As an in
i stance of this we may cite an article in
the Democrat of Jast week, credited to the
Bellefonte Watchman, a willing defender
iof all that was treasonable during tht war.
which concludes a tissue of falsehoods
and misrepresentations as follows:
" If Congress can make greenbacks a
legal tender, constitutionally, why do they
not point out the provision of that it -mi
lient which gives it that power? If they
are right they have certaiuiy some • rgu
ment to show that lie was wrong, but so
far as we have seen, they have none but
. the silly balderdash about " re.-el sympa
thizer.' " disloyalty,'* " eop;>erhead," and
so on, tliat constituted the song of every
ooor cowardly, treasonable " loyalist" du
; ring the entire war. It wiil take some
.'liing more than that to induce the peo
ple of Pennsylvania to believe that Judge
Sharswood is not fitted for the supreme
beneii—more than that to prove his opin
ion wrong, or that Conere— has tiie right
contrary to the explicit declaration of the
iOtli section of the Constitution to make
anything hut gold andsilvereoiii a tender
in payment of debts. Take up the Con
stitution, ye abolition s dons, and point
out the section tiiatgives to your im'veeiie
i Congress the power to make p •!■>!> d p-.i
--\ per a legal tender.' Can you? tJreen
uteks axe not " COMIC they are pr>n(-
Here is a confident reference to Section
X, with a bold assertion of what it con
iains. and as not more than one out fifty
people have a copy of the Constitution,
many would no doubt suppose that what
is said is true; yet the whole thing is a
>nse fabrication and wilful falsehood, put
rth for the purpose of deception and
pickery, as any one can see by readirty
Section X, to wit:
'•.SEC. X.—l. No STATE shall enter into
my treaty, alliance, or confederation;
grant letters of marque and reprisal: coin
uoney; emit bills of credit; make any
hing but gold and silver coin a tender in
•ayment of debts; pass any bill of attain
ler, ex post facto law, or law impairing
he obligation of contracts ; or grunt any
title of nobility."
From this every man with three grains
of sense in ins head can see that the States
—not the United States—are prohibited
roiu making anything except coin a le
nd tender ; nor is there a single word in
he Constitution of the United States
which prohibits Congress from aut hon
ing jast such issues as the legal tenders
whenever occasion may arise to justify it.
Old renegade whigs likefsharswood—who
like many others in every county in the
state—turned copperhead in the hope and
-xpectation some day of being rewarded
by the democracy with office, may be able
to discover " what is not to be seen," but
'he wise framers of the Constitution did
not clog that instrument with a want of
power in cases of emergency, and there
fore left extraordinary power in the hands
>f Congress to meet extraordinary cases.
I>ut this is not all. WhiJe denuncia
tion upon denunciation is uttered against
he Congress which preserved the Union
from irretrievable ruin and destruction,
not one word is said against the rebel
states which violated every prohibition
of the section quoted except the last, and
that not only because the leading reikis
hud not thrown off the mask up to Lee's
surrender. They entered into treaty, al
liance and confederation; they sent ships
of war upon the seas to prey on our com
nerce, like pirates; they emitted hills of
•redit; thev made other things than gold
JIUI silver coin a tender iu payment of
lebts ; they passed hills of attainder, and
impaired the obligation of contracts —yet
when or where did either the Democrat
or Bellefonte Watchman denounce them
for it ?
If those papers desire to exercise their
forte for expounding the Constitution, we
•übmit to them as a text the following
Tom the 4th section :
".SEC. IV. The United States shall
ruarantee to EVKKY STATE in this Union
t REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOV
Uemocracy and I lie War Record.
Four out of the five candidates for the
Treasurer seem to base theirclainis
<n tliedernocralicparty for services render
ed during tiie rebellion. This sounds
rather strangely, for surely these eandi
lates must, or ought to be aware that the
democracy would hardly consider tiie
fact of a man having been engaged in
putting down the rebellion as a recom
mendation, for many, during the war,
opposed it with all the rancor and politi
cal hatred they dared utter, and would
have been better pleased had Jef Davis
succeeded iu es abiidling his slave-oli
garchy than heard of Lee's surrender and
the flight of the traitors. Hince its close,
it Is nothing unusual to hear democratic
leaders and their newspapers denounce
the war as unjust ami unholy, whilcevery
democratic convention has openly advo
cated the restoration to civil and political
rights of all those who had engaged in
i treason, without regard to their present
;good conduct. If then the war was un
jjust, unholy, anti-democratic, and with
jout just cause on tiie part of the National
Government, and the Southern traitors
were right, as democracy alleges, these
soldiers were fighting against the. truede-
I mocraci/, and therefore, instead of being
| engaged in a laudable undertaking enti
; tling them to consideration for office, were
<loitig the very thing deraociacy did not
wjsh them to do.
This conclusion may not beover-palate
| able, but to any one who will read the
Philadelphia Age or liarrisburg Patriot
'and Union for a week, or any democratic
country pajier for a month, he will find
abundant proof th#t, to have served in
the Union army is rather less recommen
dation for office than to have rendered aid
! and comfort to the rebels.

The Democrat 011 Foreigners.
The Democrat of last week is again
down on foreigners for coming to this
I country seeking labor. In speaking of a

" A notable evidence of this fact is just
now to be seen in the goings-on in the
city of Pittsburg. The Trailer' I nion.an
,association of workingtnen in that city,
owing to the inadequate wages paid by
the large iron factories, adopted a new
scale of prices, slightly increased above
the old; but the iron-masters refused to
comply with this reasonable demand,
u a very high tonf! at
present amply protects the iron interest
I'he workmen accordingly refused to

We do not sec what the above has to do
with protection. The price of labor is a
•ontr.iet between employer and employee,
ind if they cannot there is no law
compelling the one to furnish capital or

the Democrat talks quite knowingly about
die wages paid, which it says are inade

We have reasons for knowing that many
Members of this Trades Union in tin
works which had stopped operations on
account of a demand for increased wage
were earning from FIVE to SEVEN dollar
• i>or day, and yet were not satisfied. An
idvanee on this the Democrat calls a
" reasonable demand." It also rinds fault
with the employers for forming a league,
and yet justifies the other!
Trades Unions or associations of work
nginen are well enough, but designing
t naves too often get control of and u-t
them to their own advantage. This Pitt.—
>urg association, which the Democrat de
, fends, is notorious for its interference
j with well-to-do operatives throughout the
state, and ha- already caused many thriv

pleasant homes. long as this contiu

it ought to, nor will our minerals be de
